Tachycardia clinical trials at UCSF

5 in progress, 3 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Prospective Randomized Clinical Trial of Fetal Atrial Flutter & Supraventricular Tachycardia Therapy (FAST RCT)

    open to eligible females ages 16-50

    Few studies are specifically designed to address health concerns relevant during pregnancy. The consequence is a lack of evidence on best clinical practice. This includes mothers and their babies when pregnancy is complicated by an abnormally fast heart rate up to 300 beats per minute due to supraventricular tachyarrhythmia (SVA) in the unborn baby (fetus). Although fetal SVA, including atrial flutter (AF) and other forms of supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), is the most common cause of intended in-utero fetal therapy, none of the medication used to date has been evaluated for their effects on the mother and her baby in a randomized controlled trial (RCT). As a consequence, physicians need to make decisions about the management of such pregnancies without any evidence from controlled trials on drug efficacy and safety and no consensus among specialists for the optimal management. The Fetal Atrial Flutter and Supraventricular Tachycardia (FAST) Therapy Trial is a prospective multi-center trial that addresses this knowledge gap to guide future fetal SVA therapy to the best of care. Study components of FAST include three prospective sub-studies to determine the efficacy and safety of commonly used transplacental drug regimens in suppressing fetal AF without hydrops (RCT A), SVT without hydrops (RCT B), and SVT with hydrops (RCT C). All RCTs are open label phase III trials of standard 1st line therapy, which either is started as monotherapy (no hydrops) or as dual therapy (hydrops). The primary study aim is the probability of a normal pregnancy outcome after treatment start with Digoxin or Sotalol (AF without hydrops); Digoxin or Flecainide (SVT without hydrops); and Digoxin plus Sotalol or Digoxin plus Flecainide (SVT with hydrops).

  • Transseptal vs Retrograde Aortic Ventricular Entry to Reduce Systemic Emboli

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This study is a prospective, multicenter, randomized (1:1) controlled comparative effectiveness trial of a transseptal approach to left ventricular ablation compared to a retrograde aortic approach to prevent cerebral emboli and neurocognitive decline in adults with ventricular tachycardia (VT) and/or premature ventricular contractions (PVCs).

  • Prospective Observational Cohort Study of Fetal Atrial Flutter & Supraventricular Tachycardia

    open to eligible females ages 16-50

    The FAST Trial Registry is a prospective observational cohort study of fetuses with a new diagnosis of atrial flutter (AF) or supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) that is severe enough to consider prenatal treatment (see eligibility criteria below). Aims of the Registry include to establish a large clinical database to determine and compare the efficacy and safety of different prenatal treatment strategies including observation without immediate treatment, transplacental antiarrhythmic fetal treatment and direct fetal treatment from the time of tachycardia diagnosis to death, neonatal hospital discharge or to a maximum of 30 days after birth.

  • Cryoablation for Monomorphic Ventricular Tachycardia Early Feasibility Study (EFS)

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The objective of this clinical study is to evaluate the safety and performance of the Adagio VT Cryoablation System in the ablation treatment of Sustained Monomorphic VT (SMVT)

  • IVTCC 2.0: A Prospective Multicenter Ventricular Tachycardia Catheter Ablation Registry

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    This is a prospective multi-center international registry. The objective of this registry is to collect prospective data on patients undergoing catheter ablation for Ventricular Tachycardia (VT) and Premature Ventricular Contractions (PVC). The registry will be used for clinical monitoring, research, and quality improvement purposes.
