EASE MITRAL Expertise-based Assessment Study on Clinical Efficacy of Profile 3D in MITRAL Valve Annuloplasty

This study is ongoing, but not recruiting participants.

The goal of the study is to identify the patients suffering from a mitral valve condition who benefit from the implantation of a Profile 3D annuloplasty ring in terms of acute and long-term relief of mitral valve regurgitation.

Mitral Valve Insufficiency

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: EASE MITRAL Expertise-based Assessment Study on Clinical Efficacy of Profile 3D in MITRAL Valve Annuloplasty

Further study details as provided by Medtronic Cardiovascular:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Identify the patient population for which a Profile 3D Annuloplasty Ring is chosen to repair the mitral valve insufficiency. [ Time Frame: screening ]
  • Assess the percentage of patients that are chronically relieved from mitral valve dysfunction [ Time Frame: 6-12 months follow up ]
  • Determine the level of mitral valve regurgitation in patients [ Time Frame: 6-12 months post-surgery ]

Enrollment: 152
Study Start Date: February 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: May 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: April 26, 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 85 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
The patient population includes all patients suffering from mitral valve disease, indicated for a mitral valve repair procedure, either as a stand-alone procedure or concomitant to a coronary artery bypass grafting, an aortic replacement or tricuspid valve repair and/or the treatment of atrial fibrillation, and for which the surgeon considers the implantation of a Profile 3D annuloplasty product most appropriate to reconstruct the regurgitant valve.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Indicated for a surgical repair for moderate to severe mitral valve regurgitation at rest (level 2 or higher);
  • Willing to return to the hospital where the implantation originally occurred as part of the standard practice of care

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Heavily calcified valves
  • Valvular retraction with severely reduced mobility
  • Active bacterial endocarditis
  • Already participating in another investigational device study, possibly leading to bias and jeopardizing the scientific appropriate assessment of the study endpoints;
  • Life expectancy of less than one year;
  • Pregnant or desire to be pregnant within 12 months of the study treatment;
  • Under 18 years or over 85 years of age.
