Cardiac Dysfunction in Critically Ill Patients Infected With COVID-19
Cardiac dysfunction has been reported to be common in patients infected with COVID-19. The aim of this study is to evaluate the clinical importance of cardiac dysfunction in critically ill patients infected with COVID-19.
Cardiac Function and Exercise Capacity in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension
Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension is characterized by a progressive increase in pulmonary vascular resistance inducing shortness of breath and exercise intolerance. We aim to correlate cardiac function (evaluated at rest by right heart catheterism and RMN) to exercise capacity (evaluated by endurance time at 75% of maximal workout), in prevalent patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension, and their evolution at three and twelve months.
Cardiometabolic Disease and Pulmonary Hypertension
This study will investigate if metformin can help people with obesity and high pressures inside their lung blood vessels. Metformin is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat diabetes, but metformin is not approved by the FDA to treat pulmonary hypertension. This study will examine whether Metformin will improve the high pressure inside lung blood vessels in people who are obese. The study will help understand the effect of metformin on pressures inside lung blood vessels.
Cardiopulmonary Interactions in Patients With Heart Failure
This study aims to evaluate cardiopulmonary interactions in patients with heat failure
Cardiopulmonary Toxicity of Thoracic Radiotherapy
Radiotherapy improves locoregional control and survival of thoracic tumour patients. However, the associated exposure of normal tissues, often leads to side effects and possibly even reduces survival. Indeed, there is growing evidence that overall survival after radiotherapy for lung and oesophageal cancer is related to the radiation dose to heart and lungs. This suggests that thoracic radiotherapy causes mortality, which is currently not recognized as radiation-induced toxicity. So the question arises how to explain this treatment-related mortality. Interestingly, Ghobadi et al demonstrated in rats that thoracic irradiation can lead to ...
Catheter Ablation of Atrial Fibrillation in Patients With Pulmonary Hypertension Hypertension: a Randomised Study
Atrial fibrillation (AF) and atrial tachycardia (AT), including type I atrial flutter, are frequently observed in patients with pulmonary hypertension (PH). Catheter ablation of AF / AT has been established as an effective treatment option in selected patients. However, little is known about the efficacy and safety of this approach in patients with PH. It has also been shown that considerable proportion of patients with PH after acutely successful catheter ablation suffer from the recurrence of clinical or newly manifested arrhythmia. We propose a prospective study to compare two ablation strategies in a randomized fashion: radiofrequency...
Central China Congenital Heart Disease Associated Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension Cohort Study
The study will recruit and follow up patients for five years patients newly diagnosed with congenital heart disease associated pulmonary arterial hypertension(CHD-PAH) from the investigator's hospital. The main aim of the study is to describe the aetiology, natural history and management practices of CHD-PAH in central China.
Chronic Clinical Effect of Acetazolamide
The study seeks primarily to determine the chronic clinical effect of AZA on exercise capacity (6MWD) compared to placebo.
Chronic Thrombo-embolic Pulmonary Hypertension: Classification and Long Term Outcome
This study will help to provide more up to date prognostic data on the natural history of untreated proximal CTEPH which will be helpful in discussions regarding surgical versus medical treatment and by exploring the similarities and differences between distal CTEPH and IPAH the investigators hope to get insights into disease mechanisms in patients with distal CTEPH.
Clinical Study of Adipose Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells for Treatment of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension
Pulmonary arterial hypertension is a disease characterised by pathological changes in the pulmonary arteries leading to a progressive increase in pulmonary vascular resistance and pulmonary artery pressure. Right ventricular failure is the main cause of death in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension, and the ability of the right ventricle to adapt to the progressive increase in pulmonary vascular resistance associated with changes to the pulmonary vasculature in pulmonary arterial hypertension is the main determinant of a patient's functional capacity and survival.Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs)are a subset of adult stem cells...
