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

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 ...

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 ...

Carotid Revascularization and Medical Management for Asymptomatic Carotid Stenosis Trial

Prevention of stroke involves managing and treating risk factors. Most strokes are caused when blood flow to a portion of the brain is blocked. One place this often happens is in the carotid artery. This blockage is called atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries. The purpose of this trial is ...

Phase N/A

High Dose Atorvastatin for Preventing Periprocedural Ischemic Brain Damage During Carotid Artery Stenting

Chinese patients with carotid stenosis scheduled for selective CAS will be randomized into two groups. The High-dose Atorvastatin group will receive Atorvastatin 80 mg QD from 3 days before to 3 days after CAS, then 20 mg QD until 30 days after CAS, while the Conventional-dose Atorvastatin group will receive ...

Phase

New Technologies to Determine Carotid Plaque Vulnerability in Patients With Significant Carotid Plaques

All participants will receive a one time Carotid contrast-enhanced Ultrasound (CEUS) examination that may take 30-60 minutes. Follow up calls will be made to the Participants at 6, 12 ,24 and 36 months to ask about occurrence of major adverse cardiovascular events.

Phase

Evaluation of a Novel Technique to Diagnose Carotid Artery Stenosis

Currently, carotid duplex ultrasound is used for screening for ICA stenosis and must be performed by a trained and certified vascular technologist using advanced duplex imaging equipment and with subsequent interpretation by a trained physician. It would be of value to develop an accurate, reliable, low-cost, and easily accessible tool ...

Phase N/A

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 ...
