  1. An Evaluation of Rigid Sternal Fixation in Supporting Bone Healing and Improving Postoperative Recovery: A Prospective, Randomized Trial

    Jacksonville, Fla. View Summary

    An Evaluation of Rigid Sternal Fixation in Supporting Bone Healing and Improving Postoperative Recovery: A Prospective, Randomized Trial

    Location:

    Jacksonville, Fla.

    Trial status:

    Open for Enrollment

    Why is this study being done?

    Rigid sternal fixation with the BIOMET SternaLock Blu Sternal Closure System may result in greater sternal stability that leads to superior sternal bone healing, less postoperative pain and narcotic usage, and improved functional outcomes compared to wire cerclage. The health economics analysis is an interesting component of this study, in which cost and billing data will be collected from participating sites and analyzed in terms of cost/effectiveness for patients and healthcare system.

  2. A Phase 3, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study of the Effects of Ranolazine on Major Adverse Cardiovascular Events in Subjects With a History of Chronic Angina Who Undergo Percutaneous Coronary Intervention With Incomplete Revascularization

    Jacksonville, Fla. View Summary

    A Phase 3, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study of the Effects of Ranolazine on Major Adverse Cardiovascular Events in Subjects With a History of Chronic Angina Who Undergo Percutaneous Coronary Intervention With Incomplete Revascularization

    Location:

    Jacksonville, Fla.

    Trial status:

    Open for Enrollment

    Why is this study being done?

    This study will evaluate the efficacy of ranolazine as compared with placebo when used as part of standard medical therapy in chronic angina subjects with incomplete revascularization post-PCI on the composite of ischemia-driven revascularization or ischemia-driven hospitalization without revascularization.

  3. Biomarkers in Aortic Stenosis - B.A.S.S.

    Rochester, Minn., Jacksonville, Fla. View Summary

    Biomarkers in Aortic Stenosis - B.A.S.S.

    Location:

    Rochester, Minn., Jacksonville, Fla.

    Trial status:

    Open for Enrollment

    Why is this study being done?

    Patients with aortic stenosis, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, mitral regurgitation, aortic regurgitation, artificial heart valve regurgitation or stenosis, and tricuspid valve regurgitation associated with pacemaker leads who are referred for clinically-indicated echocardiographic exams at Mayo Clinic, in Jacksonville, Florida will be screened for participation in the study. The plan is to have 292 people take part in this study. This minimal risk study will consist of the recording of patient data, activity and bleeding questionnaires, and collection and analysis of blood samples.  Each blood sample will be analyzed for von Willebrand Factor antigen and activity, and von Willebrand Factor multimers, and BNP. Blood samples will be sent to the Mayo Special Coagulation Lab for analysis.

         Objective:

         This study seeks to assess the degree of association of the von Willebrand Factor activity indices and BNP to the severity of cardiac lesions, and to note a relationship between acquired bleeding the the hematologic abnormalities.  Plasma will be stored in attempt to develop new in vitro tests of von Willebrand factor (VWF) activity.

  4. Systolic Pressure Intervention Trial (SPRINT)-Factors Affecting Factors Affecting Atherosclerosis Study (FAST)

    Jacksonville, Fla. View Summary

    Systolic Pressure Intervention Trial (SPRINT)-Factors Affecting Factors Affecting Atherosclerosis Study (FAST)

    Location:

    Jacksonville, Fla.

    Trial status:

    Open for Enrollment

    Why is this study being done?

    Systolic Pressure Intervention Trial (SPRINT) is a large scale randomized trial of ~ 9250 adults aged 50 years or older with high cardiovascular risk sponsored by NIH. The study is designed to recruit 45% of the study population with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). The trial will test the effects of low systolic blood pressure (SBP) goal of < 120 mm Hg versus the standard goal of < 140 mm Hg on the primary composite of cardiovascular events and death. One of the pre-specified secondary outcome is the progression of kidney disease. In this ancillary named SPRINT - Factors affecting Atherosclerosis STudy (FAST), the investigators plan to take advantage of the unique opportunities afforded by the parent study to examine issues that are of significant public health importance. This is an observational study in SPRINT participants. This study will examine mechanistically, the factors affecting the progression of atherosclerosis in CKD.

  5. CD-NP (Cenderitide) Therapy for the Preservation of Left Ventricular Function Post Anterior Myocardial Infarction - Pilot Study

    Jacksonville, Fla., Rochester, Minn. View Summary

    CD-NP (Cenderitide) Therapy for the Preservation of Left Ventricular Function Post Anterior Myocardial Infarction - Pilot Study

    Location:

    Jacksonville, Fla., Rochester, Minn.

    Trial status:

    Open for Enrollment

    Why is this study being done?

    This is a "proof of concept", randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled study. The study population will include 60 patients admitted with a first time ST elevation anterior STEMI as diagnosed by the following criteria: a) Significant chest discomfort and /or shortness of breath; b) ST segment elevation (1.5 mV total) in two or more adjacent anterior precordial leads; c) Successful reperfusion therapy (>TIMI grade 2 flow) either with thrombolytics or PTCA within 24 hours of onset of symptoms as documented by coronary angiography; and d) No previous history of an anterior AMI or previous ECG suggesting an old anterior AMI. Patients will be randomized to one of two doses of CD-NP (5 ng/kg/min and 10 ng/kg/min) or placebo continuous infusion for up to 72 hours in a 1:1:1 manner. All patients will receive other standard medical therapies as determined appropriate by the physician and in accordance to the ACC/AHA guidelines
