Aortic Stenosis clinical trials at UCSF

5 in progress, 1 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Fetal Aortic Valvuloplasty on Outcomes

    open to all eligible people

    In one of the most severe congenital heart defects, hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS), the left ventricle is underdeveloped and the prognosis is worse than in most other heart defects. The underdevelopment can occur gradually during fetal growth caused by a narrowing of the aortic valve. At some international centers, such fetuses are treated with a balloon dilation of the narrowed valve, but there is no scientifically sound evidence that this treatment is effective. The aim of this study is: 1/ to evaluate whether balloon dilation during the fetal period of a narrowed aortic valve can reduce the risk of the left ventricle becoming underdeveloped and the baby being born with a so-called univentricular heart (HLHS); 2/ to investigate whether such treatment improves the prognosis for this group of children with a very complex and severe heart defect and 3/ to also describe side effects and risks in fetuses and mothers of the fetal procedure.

  • PROGRESS: Management of Moderate Aortic Stenosis by Clinical Surveillance or TAVR

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This study objective is to establish the safety and effectiveness of the Edwards SAPIEN 3 / SAPIEN 3 Ultra / SAPIEN 3 Ultra RESILIA Transcatheter Heart Valve systems in subjects with moderate, calcific aortic stenosis. Following completion of enrollment, subjects will be eligible for enrollment in the continued access phase of the trial.

  • Promoting Shared Decision Making for Severe Aortic Stenosis

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The goal of this study is to increase shared decision making for patients considering treatment for severe aortic stenosis. The main questions it aims to answer are: - Do patient decision aids and clinician skills training course improve the quality of decisions, and do they work well for different patient populations? - Are heart clinics able to reach the majority of patients with decision aids before their specialist visit and do the majority of clinicians complete the training course? All participating sites will start in the usual care group and then will be randomly assigned a time to switch to the intervention group. Participants will complete surveys before and after their specialist visit. Researchers will compare data from patients seen during usual care with data from those seen after the interventions are implemented to see if there are improvements in the quality of decisions.

  • Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement to UNload the Left Ventricle in Patients With ADvanced Heart Failure (TAVR UNLOAD)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The objective of this study is to determine the safety and efficacy of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) via a transfemoral approach in HF patients with moderate AS as compared with OHFT.

  • Valve Hemodynamic Optimization Based on Doppler-Echocardiography vs Catheterization Measurements Following ViV TAVR

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    Data on valve performance following ViV-TAVR has usually been obtained with the use of Doppler-echocardiography. However, some reports have shown significant discordances in the evaluation of mean transvalvular gradient between echocardiography and catheterization, with an overestimation of the real gradient with echo (vs. cath) in most cases. Thus, the incidence of procedural-device failure may be lower than that reported in the ViV-TAVR literature,
