Clinical Research

Advancing Heart Valve Research

At the Marcus Heart Valve Center, we actively engage in heart valve research. This allows us to offer customized diagnostic and therapeutic options for patients that may otherwise not be accessible.

Our leading-edge cardiac research program is focused on evaluating new treatments and technologies, particularly percutaneous (non-surgical/minimally invasive) treatment options for all heart valves. 


Currently Enrolling Research Trials



Transcatheter Replacement of Stenotic Aortic Valve through Implantation of ACURATE in Subjects Indicated for TAVR.
ALIGN AR: A Study to Assess Safety and Effectiveness of the JenaValve Trilogy™ Heart Valve System in the Treatment of High Surgical Risk Patients with Symptomatic, Severe Aortic Regurgitation (AR).
A Randomized, Comparative Effectiveness Study of Staged Complete Revascularization with Percutaneous Coronary Intervention to Treat Coronary Artery Disease vs. Medical Management Alone in Patients With Symptomatic Aortic Valve Stenosis Undergoing Elective Transfemoral Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement.
A Randomized, Controlled Trial to Assess the Management of Moderate Aortic Stenosis by Clinical Surveillance or Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement.

Cephea Early Feasibility Study
To evaluate the preliminary safety and effectiveness of the Cephea Mitral Valve System for the treatment of symptomatic patients with mitral regurgitation > Grade III in whom transcatheter therapy is deemed more appropriate than open heart surgery.
Edwards PASCAL Transcatheter Valve Repair System Pivotal Clinical Trial (CLASP IID/IIF): A prospective, multicenter, randomized, controlled pivotal trial to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of transcatheter mitral valve repair with the Edwards PASCA.
