Clinical Trials

The Lillehei Clinical Research Unit (LCRU) supports the research activities for the Cardiovascular Division clinical faculty at the University of Minnesota. The LCRU is currently conducting approximately 60 clinical trials in various phases of enrollment and follow-up with a mix of investigator initiated, industry sponsored and government sponsored trails. Active areas of study include: Stem Cell Therapy, Interventional Cardiology, Electrophysiology, Congestive Heart Failure, Heart Transplant, Ventricle Assist Devices, Cardiac Imaging, Pulmonary Hypertension, Primary and Secondary Prevention and Vascular Disease.

There are active cinical research trials in the following areas:

  • Congestive Heart Failure: Pharmacologic Studies, Left Ventricular Assist Devices, and Cardiac Transplantation
  • Electrophysiology: Antiarrhythmic Therapy, Pacemaker, and Defibrillator Studies
  • Diagnostic Imaging: ECHO, CT, MR, Nuclear, and PET studies
  • Vascular Disease
  • Primary / Secondary Prevention (HTN, Lipids, Diabetes, Obesity)
  • Stem Cell Therapy
  • Pulmonary Hypertension
  • Interventional Cardiology
  • Structural Heart Disease
