This study is enrolling participants with severe aortic stenosis, which is narrowing of one of the heart valves. This condition reduces the amount of blood that can get to the body. This study is collecting data on the safety and effectiveness of an investigational (not yet approved for commercial use by the US FDA (Food and Drug Administration)) device called the ACURATE Aortic Valve System. The procedure to place the device, referred to as TAVR - transcatheter replacement of aortic valve is done in place of open heart surgery. In this study the ACURATE Aortic Valve System will be compared to two commercially available Aortic Valve Systems (valve replacement systems). Participants will be randomized (assigned by choice, like a flip of a coin, in a 1:1 fashion so 50% chance of being assigned to either group like the flip of a coin) to one of two groups. One group will receive the ACURATE Aortic Valve System while the other group will receive one of the commercially available systems. This study will last up to 10 years. Pre-procedure testing is done and reviewed by an eligibility committee to confirm you qualify. Study visits will occur prior to your procedure, during the procedure and throughout your hospital stay, and prior to discharge. Additional visits will occur 1 month and 6 months after your discharge, and then you will either seen or telephoned once per year for the next ten years. Study related testing includes CT scans, physical exams, echocardiograms (ultrasound test of the heart), blood work, and questionnaires.
This study is examining the use, safety and performance of an investigational, meaning not approved for commercial use or sale by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) device called Transcatheter Mitral Valve Replacement (TMVR). The TMVR is a device used to treat mitral valve disease in patients with heart failure (weakened heart muscle). The device is placed by a non surgical approach using a delivery catheter (hollow tube) placed in your blood vessel at the top of your leg and directed up to your heart. This five year study will include a screening process to determine you meet eligibility criteria. If you qualify you will then be seen for a baseline visit, undergo the procedure to place the device, day after procedure, at hospital discharge, 1,3,6, 12 months, then yearly for up to 5 years. Study related testing includes physical exams, medication review, 6 minute hall walk test, questionnaires, blood work, CT scans, electrocardiogram or ECG (recording of your heart's electrical activity) and echocardiogram (ultrasound test of your heart).
This study is being done on patients who have heart failure, a condition where the heart muscle weakens and enlarges and cannot pump blood effectively. The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and effectiveness of a new device called the AccuCinch Ventricular Restoration System and compare it to treatment with standard heart failure medications alone. The AccuCinch Ventricular Restoration System consists of anchors, which attach to your heart muscle, sliders to connect the anchors and a thread like cord that goes through the anchors and is cinched to make your enlarged heart smaller so it can pump more efficiently. The device is implanted in one of the lower pumping chambers of the heart (called left ventricle). The study will have two groups, the treatment group in which participants undergo the device implant in addition to taking heart failure medications and the control group in which participants are treated with heart failure medications alone. Participation will last up to 5 years.
