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 ...

Ischemia Care Biomarkers of Acute Stroke Etiology (BASE)

Acute ischemic stroke (AIS) is a leading cause of adult mortality and morbidity in the United States, affecting over 800,000 individuals, annually, leaving many with permanent disability. Furthermore, hundreds of thousands of Americans experience a transient ischemic attack (TIA), a momentary episode of neurologic dysfunction, which often precedes a major ...

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 ...

New Technologies to Determine Carotid Plaque Vulnerability

This is a prospective cohort study. - Participating Site(s) (principal investigators in parentheses) that will be enrolling patients will be: Mayo Clinic Rochester site (PI: Sharon Mulvagh, MD). Only subjects who provide their informed consent will be included. Patients will be prospectively identified at the time they present to the ...

Phase N/A

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.

POST-APPROVAL STUDY of TRANSCAROTID ARTERY REVASCULARIZATION in PATIENTS With SIGNIFICANT CAROTID ARTERY DISEASE

The ROADSTER 2 Study is intended to evaluate real world usage of the ENROUTE Transcarotid Stent when used with the ENROUTE Transcarotid Neuroprotection System by physicians of varying experience with the transcarotid technique.

Phase N/A

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

Neurovascular Embolization Cover for Treatment of Intracranial Aneurysms and Carotid/Vertebrobasilar Fistulae

SAH (subarachnoid hemorrhage) is a devastating medical emergency. As many as 60% of patients who are afflicted die in the first 30 days as a result of the SAH, or remain severely disabled from the bleed. Existing treatment options include: medical management; endovascular therapy and surgical therapy. Endovascular techniques using ...
