Cardiogenesis Transmyocardial Revascularization Registry (ANGINA RELIEF)

This study has been completed.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Cardiogenesis Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CryoLife, Inc. Identifier:
First received: April 5, 2013
Last updated: July 6, 2016
Last verified: July 2016

The objectives of the registry are as follows:

  • Track "real world" performance outcomes and physician experience using the Cardiogenesis Laser System;
  • Further define the disease characteristics of the population being treated;
  • Examine transmyocardial revascularization (TMR) usage characteristics and 30-day outcomes;
  • Further assess the 30-day postoperative risk factors for adverse events. To limit the potential for bias, all patients eligible for TMR treatment who meet the Inclusion and Exclusion Criteria are to be offered the opportunity to enroll in the study at participating centers.

Class IV Angina

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • All Cause Mortality [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
    Number of Participant Deaths

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Major Adverse Cardiovascular Events (MACE) Rate, Defined as the Incidence of Cardiac-related Death, Myocardial Infarction (Q-wave and Non Q-wave), Congestive Heart Failure, Cerebrovascular Accident, and Serious Arrhythmia [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
  • 2 CCS Angina Class Reduction [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
    Canadian Cardiovascular Society (CCS) Angina Class-Class I: Ordinary physical activity does not cause angina, such as walking and climbing stairs. Angina with strenuous or rapid or prolonged exertion at work or recreation; Class II: Slight limitation of ordinary activity. Walking or climbing stairs rapidly, walking uphill, walking or stair climbing after meals, or in cold, or in wind, or under emotional stress, or only during the few hours after awakening. Walking more than two blocks on the level and climbing more than one flight of ordinary stairs at a normal pace and in normal conditions; Class III: Marked limitation of ordinary physical activity. Walking one or two blocks on the level and climbing one flight of stairs in normal conditions and at normal pace; Class IV: Inability to carry on any physical activity without discomfort, anginal syndrome may be present at rest.
