    The purpose of this study is to see if , with the help of a new software program to find the aortic valve angles, accurate placement of a new valve can be improved during a total aortic valve replacement procedure.

  • New-onset Atrial Fibrillation and Flutter Following Cardiac Surgery Rochester, MN

    The aims of this investigation are:

    To assess the predictive value (and accuracy) of clinical and physiologic preoperative variables in identifying patients at risk for the development of new-onset atrial arrhythmia after cardiac surgery.

    To assess the feasibility of a physiological risk model based on clinical and echocardiographic indexes to predict post-operative AF.

    To assess the role of prophylactic agents in the prevention of new-onset postoperative POAF

    To assess the economic impact of new-onset postoperative AF:

    • Length of hospital stay (will be measured as fractions of days)

    • Hospital cost (will be measured in standardized dollars)

    • Resource utilization (will be measured by resource-based relative-value units)

  • Cardiac Vascular Reconstruction DynaCT for TAVI Procedures Rochester, MN

    The purpose of this work is to evaluate the feasibility of a new Cardiac Vascular Reconstruction (CAVAREC, Siemens Medical Systems, Germany) image reconstruction algorithm for use during transcatheter aortic valve implant (TAVI) procedures. CAVAREC utilizes the same x-ray projection images as currently acquired for clinical DynaCT. X-ray image acquisition to allow CAVAREC will occur during the TAVI procedure both before and after the TAVI device is implanted. The CAVAREC image processing algorithm will be implemented on an off-line workstation after the TAVI procedure is complete. After the TAVI procedure, CAVAREC images will be quantitatively and qualitatively compared to Siemens DynaCT ...

  • Evaluating the Benefit of Concurrent Tricuspid Valve Repair During Mitral Surgery Rochester, MN

    The purpose of the research is to determine whether repairing a tricuspid valve (TV) in patients with mild to moderate tricuspid regurgitation (TR), at the time of planned mitral valve surgery (MVS), would improve the heart health of those who receive it compared to those who do not. At this point, the medical community is split in their opinion on whether surgeons should routinely repair mild to moderate TR in patients who are undergoing planned mitral valve surgery, and this study will answer this question.

  • MRE Evaluation of Liver Stiffness After Tricuspid Valvular Repair Rochester, MN

    The purpose of this study is to look at liver stiffness with a MRI sequence called Magnetic Resonance Elastography (MRE). The study will let the investigators know whether the subject's liver is normal or has increased stiffness. Increased liver stiffness often means there is chronic liver disease and fibrosis. Increased right heart pressure and congestive heart failure are considered risk factors for development of liver fibrosis. Liver fibrosis, if progressive, may lead to cirrhosis and its related complications. The increased liver stiffness may be due to a poorly functioning tricuspid valve. With this research, the investigators will be able to ...

  • A Study of Strain Echocardiography in Assessment of Valvular Heart Disease Rochester, MN

    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.
