    We are conducting a research study in adults to test whether blood pressure (BP) measured in a clinic setting without a technician present is comparable to blood pressure levels while awake outside of the clinic on an Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM) device. We will also test whether asleep blood pressure can be accurately determined using a home blood pressure monitoring device, called HBPM. Eligible participants include English or Spanish-speaking adults who don't have cardiovascular disease and are NOT currently taking a blood pressure-lowering medication. Study participation...

    This is a prospective, multicenter, non-randomized, single-arm, open-label clinical study, sponsored by Pi-Cardia. Fifteen (15) patients with symptomatic severe Aortic Stenosis (narrowing of the aortic valve) who are considered operable but are not recommended by the heart team for immediate treatment with surgical or transcatheter aortic valve replacement will be treated with the Leaflex Performer in up to 7 clinical sites. All enrolled patients will be followed up at 30 days and at 3, 6, 9, and 12 months post-procedure.

    This is a research study for patients who have Tricuspid Regurgitation (TR), a condition that occurs when the three leaflets of the heart's tricuspid valve do not close properly causing blood to leak backward with each heartbeat. Since some of the blood leaks backward, the heart has to pump more blood with each beat to push the same amount of blood forward. The goal of this study is to gain early clinical insight into how the Intrepid transcatheter tricuspid valve replacement (TTVR) system device performs. There is a need for alternative and less invasive treatment options to treat this...

    The purpose of this study is to find out which specific physical traits are linked to weight gain over time in women. You will schedule a 25-minute Zoom meeting with the research coordinator to review and electronically sign the consent. If you are eligible, you will complete surveys about your health at the time of enrollment (0 months) and at 1-year. You will be required to have your blood drawn (~2 tablespoons) and blood pressure measured at a nearby LabCorp at 0 months and 1-year. For one week of each month for the duration of the study, you will enter your weight, waist size, and body...
