Heart Failure and Cardiothoracic Transplant Biorepository


About this study

This study is being done to develop a serum and tissue bank for future research of patients with heart failure, mechanical circulatory support and/or cardiothoracic transplants. This blood/tissue will be used for three principle purposes: (1) laboratory tests which will be available in the future but that are not currently available and which may be of benefit to the patient, (2) review of previous patient laboratory results made necessary by development of a new disease process by the patient, and (3) future unspecified research purposes.
