A Randomized, Multi-Center, Placebo-Controlled, Parallel Group Study to Determine
the Effects of AMG 145 Treatment on Atherosclerotic Disease Burden
An Open-Label, Randomized, Controlled, Multicenter Study Exploring Two Treatment
Strategies of rivaroxaban and a Dose-Adjusted Oral Vitamin K Antagonist Treatment
Post-Approval Study Protocol of the St. Jude Medical Biocor™ and Biocor™ Supra Valve
Collection of Blood, Urine, and Tissue Specimens to Study Cardiovascular Disease
- Cardiac Surgery Tissue Banking
The purpose of this research is to obtain some of the excess tissue that is left
over from surgeries for future research. We also will collect two 10ml vials of
blood for use in future research.
Mechanical Strength Testing of Aortic Aneurysm Tissue The purpose of this study
is to test the strength of aneurysm tissue after it has been replaced during surgery.
- Secret CHF
A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo controlled Study of the Short Term Clinical
Effects of Tolvaptan in Patients Hospitalized for Worsening Heart Failure with Challenging
This study is to learn if IDENTIFY-HF Risk Status Algorithm that uses information
from the Reveal® insertable cardiac monitor calculates a heart failure risk status
is able to predict the risk of a patient for going to the hospital for their heart
The purpose of this clinical study is to test the safety and effectiveness of the
Medtronic Attain Performa quadripolar, left ventricular pacing lead.
- REVEAL AF
To determine, via continuous monitoring with the Reveal XT implantable cardiac monitor
(ICM) or newer approved version (referred to as Reveal ICM), the incidence of atrial
fibrillation (AF) in patients suspected to be at high risk for having AF and to
understand how physicians manage these patients once AF has been detected.
- RESPOND CRT
The aim of this study is to evaluate the safety of the PARADYM RF SonR CRT-D device
and SonRtip lead. Furthermore, to evaluate the effectiveness of the SonR optimization
feature built into the device as compared to optimizing with echocardiography, which
is the current clinical practice.
To see how effective a drug called ranolazine is in reducing the risk of fast cardiac
arrhythmias and death in people with ICDs.
To evaluate the safety of Rivaroxaban and uninterrupted Vitamin K Antagonists (VKA)
in adult subjects with NonValvular Atrial Fibrillation (NVAF) who undergo catheter
ablation as measured by post-procedure major bleeding events.
The CABANA trial is designed to test whether the treatment strategy of left atrial
catheter ablation for the purpose of eliminating atrial fibrillation (AF) will be
superior to current rate control or rhythm control drugs for reducing total mortality
in patients with untreated or incompletely treated AF.
The purpose of this study is a Global Registry on Long-Term Oral Anti-thrombotic
Treatment in Patients with Atrial Fibrillation (Phase II/III)
The purpose of this study is an International Study of Comparative Health Effectiveness
with Medical and Invasive Approaches.
