Brief Summary:
The purpose of the study is to investigate the efficacy of the ROX coupler in treating patients with tilt test proven Neurally mediated syncope.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Neurally Mediated Syncope Device: ROX COUPLER Procedure: Right heart catheterisation and routine care Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Neurally mediated syncope (NMS) is a debilitating condition, with no proven therapeutic measures. The ROX coupler is a device used to create an Iliac arterio-venous anastamosis which allows a shunt of 0.8 litres per minute. The haemodynamic changes following creation of an arterio-venous anastomosis at the iliac level leads to an increase in cardiac preload, reversing finding thought to induce NMS.

This a randomised controlled study to evaluate the effect of Iliac arterio-venous anastamosis in patients with neurally mediated syncope. The Head up tilt test is used as an objective measure to evaluate the effect of the arterio-venous anastamosis in patients with NMS. Participants with tilt test proven NMS will be eligible for the study ( if they satisfy all other eligibility criteria). Participants will be randomised to ROX coupler intervention or standard therapy. The primary outcome measure will be absence of loss consciousness on tilt table testing at 3 months post intervention.

Right heart catheterisation and Routine care of Neurally mediated syncope.
Procedure: Right heart catheterisation and routine care
Participants will have right heart catheterisation followed by routine care. Participants will be blinded to ROX coupler insertion.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Absence of loss of consciousness on tilt table testing [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Absence of loss of consciousness associated with reflex bradycardia or hypotension on head up tilt table testing at 3 months post intervention


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time to first episode of syncope after randomised intervention [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
  2. Number of syncopal episodes in the first 3 months after randomised intervention [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
  3. Tilt table response at 6 months following randomised intervention i.e. 3 months after unblinding [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  4. Number of syncopal episodes at 6 months after intervention i.e. 3 months after unblinding [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Heart rate variability following intervention as observed on 24 hour holter monitoring [ Time Frame: 3 and 6 months ]
  2. Changes in echocardiographic parameters following intervention compared to baseline. [ Time Frame: 3 and 6months ]
  3. Change in exercise capacity assessed by cardio-pulmonary exercise testing after intervention compared to baseline. [ Time Frame: 3 and 6months ]
