PET Imaging of Natriuretic Peptide Receptor C (NPR-C) in Carotid Atherosclerosis

This study is a single center, open-label baseline controlled imaging study designed to demonstrate feasibility of PET imaging of radiopharmaceutical nanoparticle Cu[64]-25%CANF-Comb uptake by PET-MR. Patients will undergo Cu[64]-25%CANF-Comb PET-MR imaging of both carotid arteries. Both carotid arteries will be imaged at the same time. We hope to demonstrate differences ...

Identifying Vulnerable Plaques in Blood Vessels of the Heart Using a New Imaging Technique

Atherosclerosis is a condition in which deposits of fat, cholesterol, and other substances build up along the inner walls of arteries; these deposits are known as plaque. As plaque builds up, it increases the risk of heart attack. Previous autopsy studies have shown that vulnerable plaques, a type of atherosclerotic ...

Effect of Remote Ischemic Preconditioning in Patient Undergoing Cardiac Bypass Surgery

Ischemic heart disease (IHD) is currently the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the developed world, and is set to become the leading cause of death in the world by the year 2020, according to the World Health Organisation. Patients with severe IHD that require coronary artery bypass graft ...

Different Platelet Activities Between Intracoronary and Peripheral Blood in Coronary Artery Disease Patients

Part A:A total of 30 CAD patients are recruited.All patients are on loading dose of 300 mg clopidogrel followed by a maintenance dose of 75 mg/d for at least 5 days and a loading dose of 300 mg aspirin followed by a maintenance dose of 100 mg/d for at least ...

A Clinical and Histological Analysis of Mesenchymal Stem Cells in Amputation

This is a phase I single center open label trial study that will enroll sixteen patients requiring semi-elective below knee amputation (BKA) within a 30 day period for non-infectious complications related to critical limb ischemia (CLI). After enrollment patients will be randomized to BKA at 3,7,14, or 21 days after ...

Autologous Bone Marrow Cell Treatment in Peripheral Atherosclerosis

Implantation of bone marrow cells, including endothelial progenitor cells, into ischemic limbs has been shown to improve collateral vessel formation. In the present study the safety and feasibility of autologous blood mononuclear cells implantation will be investigated in patients with severe peripheral atherosclerosis.Twenty cases will be enrolled. Improvement in the ...

Using Ultrasonography Shear Wave Elastography Strain Imaging and 3-D Volume Ultrasonography on Cardiovascular Disease

Aims, purpose, or objectives: To describe whether contrast-enhanced ultrasonography, strain imaging, and 3-D volume ultrasonography are helpful to characterize affected arteries and improve the imaging of arterial wall among patients with Fibromuscular Dysplasia (FMD) and segmental arterial mediolysis (SAM). Evaluate the arterial elastic properties of individuals with FMD and compare ...
