Condition constrictive pericarditis
Treatment cd leycom/millar instruments conductance catheter
Sponsor Mayo Clinic
Start date December 2013
End date November 2016
Trial size 30 participants
Trial identifier NCT02027350, 13-008074


Until now, diagnosis of constriction was based on pressure changes of ventricle by conventional pressure-wide hemodynamic evaluation but not on ventricular volume change. This study will provide answers to persisting questions about volume changes during respiration in patients with constrictive pericarditis by directly measuring both right and left ventricular volume.

Study Design

Endpoint classification efficacy study
Intervention model single group assignment
Masking open label
Primary purpose diagnostic
Changes in pressure-volume relationships will be compared to changes in LV and RV systolic pressure during respiration.
cd leycom/millar instruments conductance catheter
Conductance catheter-Pressure volume relationship

Primary Outcomes

Presence of constrictive pericarditis
time frame: 1 hour

Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants at least 18 years old.

Subjects referred for right and left heart catheterization will be eligible.
