Comparison of Fimasartan Versus Amlodipine Therapy on Carotid PlaquE Inflammation

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of angiotensin receptor 1 blocker versus calcium channel blocker on atherosclerotic plaque inflammation using serial FDG PET/CT imaging of carotid artery.


Evaluation of the Roadsaver Stent Used in Conjunction With the Nanoparasol Embolic Protection System for Carotid Artery Stenosis

A total of 295 patients will be enrolled for this study. All potential patients being considered for the study should have been diagnosed with significant carotid artery stenosis and be considered a high perioperative risk for carotid endarterectomy. Patients will be evaluated through screening, pre-procedure, index procedure, post-procedure. Follow-up visits ...

Phase N/A

99mTc-rhAnnexin V-128 Imaging for Carotid Atherosclerosis

The study is being done to assess the ability of the radiotracer 99mTc-rhAnnexin V-128 to image atherosclerotic plaque that may rupture and break off artery walls. This is caused by apoptosis or cell death in the plaque. These ruptured plaques can block blood circulation in the arteries causing a lack ...


Carotid Atherosclerosis : Innovative Imaging Biomarkers. Study Case-control

Cerebrovascular accident (CVA) constitutes a major health public problem. This represents the second cardiovascular death cause. CVA is ischemic in 80% of cases. Atheroma of large arteries, mainly carotid, is involved in about 20% of cases. After several high grade studies (NASCET, ECST, ACAS, ACST), carotid surgery is based on ...

Phase N/A

Clopidogrel Resistance and Embolism in Carotid Artery Stenting

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the ticlopidine + ginko biloba compared to clopidogrel in clopidogrel resistant patients undergoing carotid artery stent placement. The investigators hypothesized that ticlopidine + ginko biloba is superior than clopidogrel in terms of post-stent ischemic lesions in these ...


Carotid Endarterectomy Versus Carotid Artery Stenting in Asymptomatic Patients

The trial randomise patients with asymptomatic carotid artery narrowing in whom prompt physical intervention is thought to be needed, but there there is still substantial uncertainty shared by patient and doctor about whether surgery or stenting is the more appropriate choice. The study is looking at immediate risks (within one ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Nicotinic Acid Plus Simvastatin Versus Simvastatin Alone on Carotid and Femoral Intima-Media Thickness in Patients With Peripheral Artery Disease (NASCIT)

Dyslipidaemia is characterized by low plasma levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-c), elevated triglycerides and an increase in low density lipoprotein (LDL-c) particles, and has been unequivocally established as a most important cardiovascular risk factor. While statins are effective in reducing plasma levels of LDL-c, these drugs have only modest ...


Short-Term Endogenous Hydrogen Sulfide Upregulation

The primary, scientific long term objective is to study any correlation that brief upregulation of endogenous hydrogen sulfide (H2S) via pre-operative protein calorie restriction (PCR) in elective major surgery may have biologic effects in humans. In this study, the investigators plan to evaluate patient compliance and the physiologic response pre-operative ...

Phase N/A

Multimodal Imaging Assessment of the Inflammatory Atheromatous Plaque

Patients with indication for endarterectomy will be presented the present protocol. If inclusion criteria are fulfilled, patients will have a 18F-FDG PET/CT + carotid US performed 6 to 2 days before endarterectomy and 68Ga-NODAGA-RGD PET/CT + MRI performed the day before endarterectomy. Histopathological sample will be analyzed to measure plaque ...


A Trial Comparing the Effect of Pravastatin and Rosuvastatin on Atherosclerosis Progression Measured by Carotid Intima Media Thickness in Patients With Coronary Artery Disease After Biolimus Eluting Stent (Nobori ) Implantation: CPR IMT

Current consensus papers recommend statin medication to reduce Low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol level less than 100mg/dL (optional 70mg/dL) in patients with coronary artery disease. However, there is lack of solid evidence whether a specific kind of statin have the superiority against other statins in clinical outcomes. Furthermore, recent data ...
