SmartRisk Stroke Prediction by MRI of Carotid Disease

Carotid artery disease (atherosclerosis) is a major cause of stroke that can be treated with carotid endarterectomy surgery (CEA) or stenting. Subjects with moderate, asymptomatic stenosis (50-79% narrowing) typically do not undergo intervention because the procedural risks outweigh the benefits. However, some of these individuals will have vulnerable plaque that ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Short Term Atorvastatin Treatment 80mg/Day on Early Regression of Carotid Artery Atherosclerotic Lesions

Candidates for bilateral carotid endarterectomy (CEA) who meet study criteria will provide informed consent before their randomization. Before the first CEA, the patient will have MRI, US, and EBCT exams of both carotids. The most occlusive plaque will be resected at the first CEA. The patient will then receive atorvastatin ...

Phase

Sleep Apnea in Cerebrovascular Disease

The study will evaluate a diagnostic/therapeutic intervention among veterans with cerebrovascular disease, hypertension, and obesity using unattended polysomnography to diagnose sleep apnea and CPAP with an adherence/educational protocol to treat sleep apnea. Electronic databases will be used to identify patients at two VA medical centers with cerebrovascular disease (stroke or ...
