EU PAS Register NumberEUPAS10201
Official titleAortic Replacement using Individualised Regenerative Allografts: Bridging the Therapeutic Gap - ARISE
Study title acronymARISE
Study typeActive surveillance
Brief description of the studyThe purpose of this investigation is to evaluate decellularized human aortic valve, Arise AV (“ARISE AV”) for aortic valve replacement rates in comparison to current valve substitutes within a large prospective multicentre surveillance at 6 leading European Centres for Cardiothoracic Surgery regarding re-operation and re-intervention, hemodynamic performance, growth potential and long term durability. More qualified centres may be added to supplement the Surveillance cohort. Primary safety endpoints: All‐cause mortality, major stroke, life‐threatening (or disabling) bleeding, acute kidney injury—stage 3 (including renal replacement therapy), peri‐procedural myocardial infarction, major vascular complication, repeat procedure for valve‐related dysfunction (surgical or interventional therapy. Secondary safety data: Collection of medical data to assess the process of tissue vigilance. Collection of medical history to support the presence/absence of adverse events, e.g. infections, arrhythmia. Primary efficacy endpoint: Freedom from valve dysfunction leading to re-intervention or explanation at end of the Surveillance. Key secondary efficacy endpoint: Diameters of ARISE AV at end of the Surveillance in comparison to diameters at implantation, transvalvular gradients, valve competence assessed by non-invasive imaging tools such as echocardiography or cardiac magnetic resonance imaging.
