IdeNtifying High riSk Patients Post Myocardial Infarction With REduced Left Ventricular Function Using External Loop Recorders (INSPIRE-ELR Study) (INSPIRE-ELR)

This study is ongoing, but not recruiting participants.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Medtronic BRC Identifier:
First received: November 21, 2013
Last updated: September 12, 2016
Last verified: September 2016
The purpose of the INSPIRE-ELR study is to characterize arrhythmias in post MI low EF (≤35%) patients in the acute phase (at discharge from hospital after index MI) and chronic phase (at 8-10 weeks after index MI) and to correlate with patients at high risk of all-cause mortality or sudden cardiac death (SCD) at 1 year.

Condition Intervention
Post Myocardial Infarction Patients With Ejection Fraction Less Than or Equal to 35% Device: External Loop Recorder

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: IdeNtifying High riSk Patients Post Myocardial Infarction With REduced Left Ventricular Function Using External Loop Recorders (INSPIRE-ELR Study)

Further study details as provided by Medtronic BRC:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Clinically significant arrhythmias reported by ELR at acute monitoring period [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Clinically significant arrhythmias reported by ELR [ Time Frame: 8-10 weeks post MI ]
    The study is designed to collect the incidence of any post-MI arrhythmias. If an arrhythmia is detected, the patient will be managed per the physician's discretion.

Enrollment: 250
Study Start Date: April 2014
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: February 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
External Loop Recorder
This is a non-randomized study. All the patients will be enrolled will received the ELR system.
Device: External Loop Recorder
Other Names:
  • NUVANT Mobile Cardiac Telemetry (MCT) system (CorventisTM)
  • SEEQ™ External Cardiac Monitor (ECM) system (Medtronic, Inc., Minneapolis, MN)


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Patients must meet all of the below criteria to be eligible for the study:

  • Patients must provide written informed consent/data release consent to
  • participate in the study.
  • Acute Myocardial Infarction (STEMI or non-STEMI) documented within 10 days of onset, matching one of the following criteria:
  • Acute ST segment elevation greater than or equal to 0.1 mv on ECG in 2 or more leads or new LBBB, with symptoms of ischemia
  • In all other situations, including non ST segment elevation MI, at least one cardiac biomarker value [preferably cardiac troponin (cTn)] above the 99th percentile of a normal reference population (upper reference limit (URL)) AND with at least one of the following (1) new or presumed new ST-T changes (2) Symptoms or signs of Ischemia (3) Development of pathological Q waves in the ECG (4) Identification of an intracoronary thrombus by angiography
  • LVEF less than or equal to 35 percent as measured by echocardiography Simpsons method, biplane one day before or on the day of hospital discharge

Exclusion Criteria

  • Patients who cannot be discharged from the hospital within14 days after index Myocardial Infarction event
  • Age less than 18 years
  • Psychologically incapacitated
  • Patient is pregnant, or is expecting to become pregnant during the course of the trial per Investigator discretion.
  • Patients contraindicated for NUVANT system
  • Comorbidities likely to limit survival to less than the minimal study duration (12 months)
  • Participation in an investigational study with known or suspected cardiac effect expected to confound the results of this study (e.g. stem cell trials, stent trials, cardiac intervention trials, drug trials)
  • Patients with an existing pacemaker or ICD implanted.
  • Patients that are dialysis dependent at discharge
