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 ...

Phase N/A

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

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

Stroke and Cerebrovascular Diseases Registry

Stroke is the fifth cause of all-cause mortality in US http://www.cdc.gov/stroke/facts.htm Early identification and treatment not only prevent mortality but also morbidity. Recent advancement in the imaging and diagnostic technique and novel therapeutic modalities has dramatically helped to downgrade stroke from the list of top mortality index in the last ...

Phase N/A

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

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

Registry Of Acute meDical Emergencies in Brazil

This will be a prospective and multicentric data-bank registry. Initially, all patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS), acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF), warfarin intoxication, acute pulmonary edema, acute aortic dissection, chest pain, pulmonary embolism and syncope will be included. There will be not exclusion criteria. The inclusion criteria will be ...

Phase N/A

Arachidonic Acid Metabolism in Carotid Stenosis Plaque in Diabetic Patients

Diabetes is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular complications, as a reflection of the chronic inflammatory status. Monocytes-macrophages in diabetic subjects present impaired arachidonic acid metabolism. Moreover, atheromatous plaques in diabetic subjects seem to be significantly enriched in 2-AA-LPC (2-arachidonoyl-lysophosphatidylcholine) and are more inflammatory and more likely to rupture ...

Phase N/A

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

Predictive Value of Neovascularization Within Asymptomatic Carotis Stenosis on CEUS

Background: Injection of ultrasound contrast agents, in conjunction with contrast specific imaging techniques, is increasingly accepted in clinical use for diagnostic ultrasound imaging. As microbubbles contrast agents appear to be ideal pure intravascular tracers to enhance the vascular lumen and more important to assess the dynamic spatial and temporal heterogeneity ...
