Are you an adult with ischemic or non-ischemic cardiomyopathy? This observational study will group and follow patients at a higher risk for sudden cardiac death (SCD) who receive an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) pulse generator replacement as a prevention measure. The study hypothesizes that abnormalities of the heart, some of which are genetically determined, can be used to identify patients at high risk of SCD. To participate in this study, you must be between 18 and 85 years old and have ischemic or non-ischemic cardiomyopathy. You must also be getting your initial ICD implant for primary prevention or a programmed generator replacement if the ICD was originally implanted for SCD primary prevention. The study takes place in Baltimore, Maryland; Richmond, Virginia; and Washington, DC.

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.

Are you a woman who is postmenopausal or a man older than 65? This study will investigate the effects of oral progesterone for older women and testosterone for older men on QT intervals. QT intervals that are increased by medicine can lead to dangerous heart rhythm problems. Researchers hope to learn more about why this happens and how to deliver safer doses. This study is located in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Are you scheduled for open-heart surgery for your aortic valve? This study aims to look at changes in inflammation and gene activity while surgery patients are on a heart-lung bypass machine. To participate in this study, you must be at least 20 years old and be scheduled for aortic valve surgery, either with or without coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). This study is located in Boston, Massachusetts.

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 who does not have high blood pressure and is interested in research? This study will investigate how the brain regulates the body’s response to stress and how infection with HIV or pre-hypertension affects regulation. Your heart and brain activity will be measured while you are at rest, during a mentally stressful task, and while you feel angry. The study will also test whether a breathing exercise improves regulation. People with and without HIV and pre-hypertension will be included. To participate in this study, you must be between 21 and 65 years old and not have high blood pressure. This study is located in Miami, Florida.

Do you have a high-risk pregnancy? This study will investigate the use of a non-invasive scan called fetal magnetocardiography to detect potential problems in the fetus in five high-risk pregnancy conditions associated with stillbirth. The scan is normally used to look at fetal heart rhythms. To participate in this study, you must be at least 18 years old and pregnant with one of the following: having a stillbirth in a previous pregnancy, carrying identical twins, or having a fetus that has been diagnosed with major congenital heart disease, fetal hydrops, or fetal gastroschisis. This study takes place in Madison and Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
