Ventricular Tachycardia clinical trials at UC Health
3 in progress, 1 open to eligible people
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
This clinical investigation is intended to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of ventricular ablation therapy using the FlexAbility Sensor Enabled Ablation Catheter in patients with drug-refractory monomorphic ventricular tachycardia in whom ventricular tachycardia recurs despite antiarrhythmic drug therapy or when antiarrhythmic drugs are not tolerated or desired.

The purpose of this research study is to examine the effect of cardiac sympathetic denervation (CSD) surgery on life threatening abnormal heart rhythms called ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation that can lead to sudden cardiac death. Subjects will be asked to participate in this research study if they have recurrent ventricular tachycardia (at least one ICD shock for ventricular tachycardia) and have undergone at least one catheter ablation procedure or have ventricular tachycardia or fibrillation that is not ablatable. The goal of this study is to determine whether cardiac sympathetic denervation can prevent these abnormal heart rhythms from occurring and therefore, prevent, ICD shocks which are not only painful, but have been shown to reduce quality of life and/or lead to depression, particularly in the period immediately after the shock.

Single arm, phase Ib/2a dose escalation study with an expansion cohort to determine the maximal tolerated dose (MTD) for stereotactic ablative radiotherapy of targets in the cardiac myocardium and to make a preliminary assessment of the efficacy of the treatment. The dose escalation will be guided by Time-to-Event Continual Reassessment Method (TITE-CRM) to ensure more patients will be spared dose limiting toxicities and more patients will be entered on the dose level that will be chosen as minimal dose of maximal effect. This design also allows for continual accrual of patients when delayed adverse events may be observed.
