  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to show that CRT(Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy) pacing in patients with severe functional MR (Mitral Regurgitation) who are not currently indicated for CRT will demonstrate chronic benefit of MR reduction( via echo measured MR/LA area and ERO per American Society of ECHO guidelines) and to show that CRT pacing is safe in these patients.


Condition Intervention Phase
Mitral Regurgitation
Device: CRT pacing
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Subject)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Prospective.Randomized, Blinded, Crossover Chronic IDE Study of the Effects of Pacing on Mitral Regurgitation in Patients Without Standard Indications for Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy

Further study details as provided by Trinity Medical Center, Illinois:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Chronic(8 months post-implant) benefit of MR reduction [ Time Frame: Chronic ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    To show that CRT pacing in patients with severe functional MR who are not currently indicated for CRT will demonstrate chronic(8 months post-implant) benefit of MR reduction (via echo measured MR/LA area and ERO per American Society of Echo guidelines)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare MR Severity (ERO and MR/LA area), heart volume and dimensions via echo and clinical symptoms between two pacing modalities [ Time Frame: Chronic ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Secondary objectives will compare MR severity (ERO and MR/LA area), heart volume and dimensions via echo (LA and LV), LVEF via echo (Simpson's method and clinical sypmtoms (NYHA class, QOL, 6MHW distance) between the two pacing modalities (CRT ON and OFF)

Arms Assigned Interventions
CRT ON
After implant, patients will be randomized to CRT pacing ON vs OFF in crossover fashion with 3 months in each period
Device: CRT pacing
The chronic effect of CRT pacing on the degree of MR in pts with severe-to-moderate or severe functional MR. The treatment being studied is CRT pacing therapy with standard of care LV lead placement. Patients will be randomized to CRT pacing ON vs. OFF and followed for a total of up to 8 months. This includes two 3-month crossover periods for each pacing modality (CRT ON and CRT OFF) and a 6-week washout period between these periods.
CRT- OFF
After implant, patients will be randomized to CRT pacing OFF vs ON in crossover fashion with 3 months in each period
Device: CRT pacing
The chronic effect of CRT pacing on the degree of MR in pts with severe-to-moderate or severe functional MR. The treatment being studied is CRT pacing therapy with standard of care LV lead placement. Patients will be randomized to CRT pacing ON vs. OFF and followed for a total of up to 8 months. This includes two 3-month crossover periods for each pacing modality (CRT ON and CRT OFF) and a 6-week washout period between these periods.

Detailed Description:

Approximately 50 patients will be randomized, followed and analyzed in this prospective study. Patients who meet all inclusion and no exclusion criteria will be enrolled and implanted with a CRT system. Baseline evaluation, which includes clinical symptom evaluation and an echocardiogram, will be performed at the time of randomization, which should occur as soon after device implant as possible but no later than 2 week post -implant. The baseline echocardiogram should be acquired prior to the device being programmed to the randomized setting. Repeat echocardiograms and scheduled follow-up evaluations will be performed at the end of each 3 month crossover period.
