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 ...


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 ...


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

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.


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 ...


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 ...

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 ...


Insulin Resistance in Patients After Carotid Revascularization

Trial Title: Insulin Resistance in Patients After Carotid Revascularization. Protocol: Investigators recruited eligible Han Chinese participants (aged 40-80) who were diagnosed with carotid stenosis and had indications for carotid revascularization surgery. Participants were excluded if participants had undergone surgical contraindication, or psychiatric disorders, or cancer, or pregnant, or lactating, or ...


Role of the Type of Carotid Stent and Cerebral Protection on Cerebral Microembolization During Carotid Artery Stenting. A Randomized Study Comparing Carotid Wallstent vs Roadsaver Stent and Distal vs Proximal Protection.

Stenting is an alternative to traditional surgery in the treatment of carotid stenosis.The intra and/or postprocedural cerebral embolization remains the most frequent complication. The type of carotid stent and of cerebral protection are the two most important variables potentially affecting the rate of cerebral microembolization. So far there no consensus ...

Phase N/A

Cardiac Output and Duplex Sonography in Carotid Endarterectomy

The investigators will investigate the differences between the cardiac output and the cerebral blood-flow between a regional anesthesia (RA) and a general anesthesia (GA) in a randomized, controlled, single center study at the Medical University Innsbruck, Department of Anesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine. For this purpose patients with the need ...
