Describes the nature of a clinical study. Types include:
Classical echocardiographic assessment of heart valves is critical in determination of disease severity. However, echocardiography has only limited ability to predict how well an individual patient will do at time of surgery. New echocardiographic technology allows us to measure new, more refined parameters of your heart’s performance. This study is investigating whether these new parameters are better in predicting outcomes.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. If you need assistance understanding the eligibility criteria, please contact the study team.
Study statuses change often. Please contact us for help.
