Summary

Heart disease can be detected in the hospital by Cardiac Magnetic Resonance (CMR)- a device that uses a large magnet. CMR is used to test how healthy the heart muscle is and how well the heart is pumping. We will test a new method to see how helpful it is to quickly get good pictures and if this is useful for testing the health of heart muscle in patients with heart disease.

Summary

Disease of the blood vessels in the legs can be detected in the hospital by Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA)- this uses a device that acts like a large magnet. MRA is used to test how healthy the blood vessels are and if there are any blockages. We will test a new method to see how helpful it is to quickly get good pictures and if this is useful for testing the patients with disease of the blood vessels in other regions of the body.

Summary

Kidney failure occurring after heart failure is a serious problem leading to prolonged ICU stay, prolonged hospitalization, dialysis and death. The goal of this study is to identify patients who will develop severe kidney failure after heart surgery. Early identification of patients who will develop kidney failure after surgery will allow earlier and better treatment to prevent this complication. In this study, urine is collected after surgery and analyzed to determine the concentration of many proteins. These proteins are potential biomarkers to predict the development of kidney failure. This is a multi-center study funded by the National Institutes of Health. It is being performed at Duke University, George Washington University and the University of Tennessee. MUSC is the lead center.
