RESULTS

Found (77) clinical trials

CREST-2 is two parallel multi-center randomized, observer-blinded endpoint clinical trials. One trial will assess treatment differences between intensive medical management alone compared to CEA plus intensive medical management. The parallel trial will assess treatment differences between intensive medical management alone compared to CAS plus intensive medical management. Intensive medical management ...

Phase N/A

The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate whether treatment with rivaroxaban and aspirin or rivaroxaban alone is better than aspirin alone in prevention of heart attacks, stroke or cardiovascular death in patients with coronary or peripheral artery disease.

Phase N/A

The objective of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of MicroVention Carotid Stent System used in conjunction with the Nanoparasol embolic protection system for the treatment of carotid artery stenosis in patients with elevated risk for adverse events following carotid endarterectomy.  The stent is a self-expanding implant with a ...

Phase N/A

18F-choline and 18F-FDG PET-MR of Symptomatic Carotid Plaques

Accumulation and subsequent activation of inflammatory cells in the atherosclerotic plaques play an essential role in transforming a stable plaque into a vulnerable plaque at risk to rupture. On this basis, the study aims to evaluate the diagnostic performance of 18F-choline PET in identifying ongoing inflammation within atherosclerotic plaques. The ...

Phase

Assessing Neurocognition After Cerebrovascular Intervention

Patients are being asked to partake in this study because the PI has decided on clinical grounds as outlined in the clinical trial, NASCET, (either asymptomatic 70% carotid stenosis or symptomatic >50% carotid stenosis) that CAS or CEA is indicated. The only aspect of the study that is research is ...

Phase N/A

Structural Stability of Carotid Plaque and Symptomatology

This study examines the relationship between the structural stability of carotid atherosclerotic plaque forming at the bifurcation of the common internal/external carotids and the ability of such lesions to cause disease. The theory behind this work is the hypothesis that carotid atherosclerotic stroke presents not only as a classical episodic ...

Phase N/A

The Role of Large Artery Plaque Imaging Features in Predicting Inflammation and Cognition

This research is directed at a major stroke source, the carotid artery, a major vessel that supplies blood to the brain. It has long been known that carotid narrowing is an important stroke risk factor. However, many patients with narrow carotids do not have strokes, and many patients with seemingly ...

Phase

The FOVUS-ER Study: Focused Vascular Ultrasound to Risk Stratify Patients With Chest Pain in the ER

Broad Goal: To demonstrate that focused vascular ultrasound (FOVUS) can accurately risk stratify patients with chest pain in the emergency department (ED). Background and Rationale: Traditional risk assessment focuses on characteristics of the pain, known Coronary Artery Disease (CAD), risk factors, electrocardiogram (ECG), and blood tests to identify active ischemia. ...

Phase N/A

Hemodynamics and Autonomic and Cognitive Performance After Carotid Revascularization Procedures

Hypothesis and Significance: Late clinical outcome and prognosis after CAS may be inferior to that after CEA in terms of autonomic modulation, hemodynamic remodeling, and cognitive function. Specific Aim: 1) To compare the impact of CEA and CAS on long-term post-operative baroreceptor function and on cognitive brain function, and analyze ...
