A Phase 1 Feasbility Study Of Volume Intracardiac Echo In Assessment Of Patients With Structural And Valvular Heart Disease Undergoing Percutaneous Transcatheter Therapy
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
This study will compare 3 dimensional intracardiac echo (ICE) with 2 dimensional ICE or transesophageal echo in patients with structural and valvular heart disease who are already scheduled to undergo a percutaneous intervention. Specifically those patients would be those scheduled for a PFO or ASD repair, mitral balloon valvuloplasty, diagnostic cardiac catheterization assessment of aortic stenosis and those undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement.
