Mitral Valve Insufficiency clinical trials at UCSF
2 in progress, 1 open to eligible people
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
The diagnosis of valvular heart disease (VHD), or its absence, invariably requires cardiac imaging. A familiar and inexpensive tool to assist in the diagnosis or exclusion of significant VHD could both expedite access to life-saving therapies and reduce the need for costly testing. The FDA-approved Eko Duo device consists of a digital stethoscope and a single-lead electrocardiogram (ECG), which wirelessly pairs with the Eko Mobile application to allow for simultaneous recording and visualization of phono- and electrocardiograms. These features uniquely situate this device to accumulate large sets of auscultatory data on patients both with and without VHD. In this study, the investigators seek to develop an automated system to identify VHD by phono- and electrocardiogram. Specifically, the investigators will attempt to develop machine learning algorithms to learn the phonocardiograms of patients with clinically important aortic stenosis (AS) or mitral regurgitation (MR), and then task the algorithms to identify subjects with clinically important VHD, as identified by a gold standard, from naïve phonocardiograms. The investigators anticipate that the study has the potential to revolutionize the diagnosis of VHD by providing a more accurate substitute to traditional auscultation.

The CARILLON Trial - Assessment of the Carillon® Mitral Contour System® in Treating Functional Mitral Regurgitation Associated With Heart Failure
Sorry, not currently recruiting here
The objective of this prospective, multi-center, randomized, double-blind trial is to assess the safety and efficacy of the CARILLON Mitral Contour System in treating subjects with functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) associated with heart failure, compared to a randomized Control group which is medically managed according to heart failure guidelines.
