Heart Conditions clinical trials at UC Davis

2 research studies open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • A Study of Catheter Ablation Procedures for Treatment of Persistent Atrial Fibrillation

    “Volunteer for research and contribute to discoveries that may improve health care for you, your family, and your community!”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of this study it to learn whether pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) along with isolation of the posterior left atrial wall (PWI) in the region of the pulmonary venous component will reduce the likelihood of atrial fibrillation (AF) recurrence in patients with persistent atrial fibrillation at 12 months, after a single ablation procedure, in comparison to PVI alone. The investigator hypothesizes that the combination of PVI + PWI will result in a significant reduction in recurrence of atrial fibrillation at 12 months after ablation.

  • Blood Markers of Stroke and Brain Hemorrhage

    “This study hopes to learn whether there are changes in the genetic material of people who have had a stroke or brain hemorrhage”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This study will evaluate whether a gene marker can improve the identification of atrial fibrillation in patients with ischemic stroke, and evaluate whether the decision to anticoagulate could be improved by a marker of atrial fibrillation.
