Minnesota
Are you a Minnesota resident with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy? This study aims to find out how common it is for people with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy to also have sleep apnea. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a disease that causes the heart muscle to thicken. Participants will also wear a heart rhythm monitor to help researchers learn whether sleep apnea is linked to arrhythmia. The study seeks healthy volunteers as well as participants in the Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Registry. To participate in this study, you must not have had a catheter ablation procedure to treat atrial fibrillation, had surgery to replace your heart valves, or been treated for sleep apnea. The study is located in Rochester, Minnesota.

Are you being treated for atrial fibrillation? This study aims to compare two types of ablation treatment for patients who continue to have symptoms of atrial fibrillation despite treatment with medicines. The two ablation procedures treat different areas of tissue. To participate in this study, you must be at least 21 years old. The study is located in Palo Alto and San Diego, California.

Do you know someone who will be having heart surgery? This study aims to identify what genetic patterns might cause atrial fibrillation and other adverse events that happen after heart surgery. To participate in this study, you must be between 20 and 90 years old. The study is in three locations in Massachusetts and Texas.

Did you develop atrial fibrillation after coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery? Did you develop atrial fibrillation after a coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery? This study is looking at how well oral anticoagulation medicines work to prevent complications, such as blood clots and heart attack, for patients who experience post-operative atrial fibrillation (POAF). This study is in multiple locations around the country.

Are you an adult with atrial fibrillation who recently had a catheter ablation procedure? This study will investigate the effectiveness of an implantable cardiac monitor-guided device to monitor participants for recurrent atrial fibrillation following ablation. This study is located in Rochester, New York.

Do you live in Pittsburgh and have atrial fibrillation? This study is evaluating the health effects of a smartphone-based program, which stimulates conversation, and a device to monitor their heart rate and rhythm. To participate in this study, you must be at least 21 and take warfarin or other similar medicine for atrial fibrillation.

Are you an adult planning to have heart surgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital or Texas Heart Institute? This study is looking into the genetic causes of heart problems that can happen after heart surgery, such as atrial fibrillation, myocardial infarction, renal dysfunction, and heart failure. To participate in this study, you must be between 20 and 90 years old. This study takes place in Boston, Massachusetts; and Dallas and Houston, Texas.

Have you been diagnosed with peripartum cardiomyopathy and are within 5 months of your due date? This study is evaluating the effectiveness of a medicine called bromocriptine to treat peripartum cardiomyopathy, or weakness of the heart muscle that occurs during or shortly after pregnancy. To participate in this study, you must be at least 18 years old, diagnosed with peripartum cardiomyopathy, and within 5 months of your delivery date. This study takes place in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Have you recently been diagnosed with Takotsubo Syndrome? This study aims to investigate the short- and long-term effects of takotsubo syndrome, sometimes referred to as broken heart syndrome. Usually, takotsubo syndrome is a temporary heart condition that is caused by either emotional or physical stress. To participate in this study, you must have a new diagnosis of takotsubo syndrome and be at least 18 years old. This study takes place in Providence, Rhode Island.

Are you an adult with ischemic cardiomyopathy? This study is investigating ways to prevent sudden cardiac arrest in people with ischemic cardiomyopathy. Researchers in this study are also working to determine which patients could benefit from an implantable cardioverter defibrillator, a device that is connected to the heart that can detect and stop irregular heartbeats called arrythmias. To participate in this study, you must be 18 years old or older and have ischemic cardiomyopathy. This study takes place in Buffalo, New York.
