Ventricular Tachycardia clinical trials at University of California Health

5 in progress, 4 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • A Study to Evaluate the Effect of Vagus Nerve Stimulation in Patients Undergoing VT Ablation

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) has been shown to be beneficial in multiple studies including heart failure. The goal of this clinical investigation is to gain additional information about how vagus nerve stimulation relates to abnormal heart rhythms. The outcomes of this study will help researchers design new therapies for patients that have complex and life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias.

  • Cardiac Sympathetic Denervation for Prevention of Ventricular Tachyarrhythmias

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    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.

  • FLExAbility Sensor Enabled Substrate Targeted Ablation for the Reduction of VT Study

    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.

  • Transseptal vs Retrograde Aortic Ventricular Entry to Reduce Systemic Emboli

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This study is a prospective, multicenter, randomized (1:1) controlled comparative effectiveness trial of a transseptal approach to left ventricular ablation compared to a retrograde aortic approach to prevent cerebral emboli and neurocognitive decline in adults with ventricular tachycardia (VT) and/or premature ventricular contractions (PVCs).

  • IVTCC 2.0: A Prospective Multicenter Ventricular Tachycardia Catheter Ablation Registry

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    This is a prospective multi-center international registry. The objective of this registry is to collect prospective data on patients undergoing catheter ablation for Ventricular Tachycardia (VT) and Premature Ventricular Contractions (PVC). The registry will be used for clinical monitoring, research, and quality improvement purposes.
