Research Sponsored by Centre de Recherche de l'Institut Universitaire de Cardiologie et de Pneumologie de Quebec
Eligibility Criteria Checklist
Specific guidelines that determine who can or cannot participate in a clinical trial
Must have
-Patients undergoing TAVI with either balloon or self-expandable valves who develop new-onset LBBB persistent at hospital discharge, at least 3 days after the procedure
Be older than 18 years old
Screening 3 weeks
Treatment Varies
Follow Up within the first 3 years following tavi procedure
Awards & highlights
No Placebo-Only Group

MARE Trial Summary

This trial will evaluate the incidence of high degree or complete AVB in patients with new-onset persistent left bundle branch block following TAVI, and will also assess the usefulness of the Reveal LINQ ICM for detecting significant arrhythmias in these patients.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for patients who have a new type of heart block called left bundle branch block (LBBB) after getting a valve replacement through TAVI. They must not already have LBBB, pacemakers or defibrillators before the study, and should expect to live at least two more years.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests if a small device called Reveal LINQ® can detect serious heart rhythm problems in patients with new LBBB after TAVI. It records the heart's activity continuously to find any dangerous blocks that could happen without warning.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Inserting the Reveal LINQ® may cause discomfort, bleeding, or infection at the site where it's placed under the skin. There might also be risks related to allergic reactions to materials in the device.

Study Objectives

Outcome measures can provide a clearer picture of what you can expect from a treatment.
Primary outcome measures
-Incidence of arrhythmic events identified by the IRL leading to a change in treatment or major adverse event
-Rate and time of onset of high degree or complete AVB
Secondary outcome measures
-Changes in left ventricular function and mitral regurgitation over time
-Electrocardiographic and device-related factors predicting the occurence of high degree or complete AVB in patients with new-onset LBBB after TAVI
-Rate of high degree or complete AVB
