The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the SENTRY IVC Filter

Phase N/A

Low Molecular Weight Heparin for 72 Hours Followed by Dabigatran for Acute Intermediate-Risk Pulmonary Embolism.

This prospective, multicenter, multinational, phase IV, interventional single-armed (management) trial will focus on the safety, efficacy and cost-effectiveness of a new oral anticoagulant in the treatment of patients with acute intermediate-risk PE based on validated imaging (echocardiographic or CT angiographic) and laboratory biomarker (circulating levels of cardiac troponins and natriuretic ...

Phase

Six Years of Follow-up After Idiopathic Venous Throbmoembolism

Beyond the first 6 months of anticoagulation, patients with a first episode of unprovoked venous thromboembolism have a high risk of recurrence after stopping anticoagulations (about 10% at one year and 30% at 5 years). Extending anticoagulant therapy for an additional 18 months is associated with a major reduction of ...

Phase N/A

A Genomic Approach to Warfarin Dose Prescription in Admixed Caribbean Hispanics

Despite the substantial number of work published over the past years in different populations around the world, a fundamental gap remains in understanding whether and how genomic admixture and polymorphisms in warfarin-related pharmacogenes account for the high inter-individual dose variability observed in Caribbean Hispanic patients. In addition to being a ...

Phase N/A

Computed Tomography CT Venography During Postpartum Venous Thromboembolism

Pulmonary embolism (PE) remains a leading cause of maternal death during postpartum in developed countries; Thoracic computed tomography angiography (CTA) is the first-line diagnostic test for PE suspicion, but has a 20 to 35% rate of inconclusiveness during pregnancy and postpartum, 2 to 3 times higher than that of the ...

Phase N/A

Comparative Effectiveness of Pulmonary Embolism Prevention After Hip and Knee Replacement

PEPPER is a large pragmatic clinical trial to inform patient choice and balance risk tolerances of individuals who face decisions about different drugs and strategies for deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) prevention after total hip (THA) and knee (TKA) replacement. Indeed, clinical equipoise exists to ethically support ...

Phase

Surgical Pulmonary Embolectomy Versus Catheter-directed Thrombolysis in the Treatment of Pulmonary Embolism: A Non-inferiority Study

Background and Study Rationale: Acute pulmonary embolism (PE) is a serious and potentially lethal condition. The clinical spectrum of PE spans from asymptomatic PE to patients with severe hemodynamic compromise. The main determinant of outcome is right ventricular dysfunction caused by the abrupt rise in pulmonary vascular resistance. Patients with ...

Phase N/A

Registry of Patients Prescribed Anticoagulation

When a patient has positive testing for acute VTE the radiologist interpreting the study contacts the Thrombophilia Center and the patient is immediately evaluated. Standardized information about guidelines endorsed anticoagulation therapy is provided in a uniform fashion with a standardized script for providers and a short summary table for the ...

Phase N/A

Predicting the Safety and Effectiveness of Inferior Vena Cava Filters

PRESERVE is a multi-center, prospective, open-label, non-randomized investigation of commercially available IVC filters from 6 manufacturers placed in subjects for the prevention of pulmonary embolism (PE). This study will enroll approximately 1,800 IVC filter subjects at up to 60 sites in the US. All treated subjects will be evaluated at ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of Anti-Xa Levels in Surgery Patients Receiving Weight-based Heparin

The purpose of this study is to determine if weight-based heparin infusions at a rate of 10 units/kg/hour are sufficient to maintain a target anti-Xa of 0.1-0.35 IU/mL for VTE prophylaxis in patients undergoing microvascular surgery. Additionally, a pilot protocol has been developed to titrate these heparin infusions to ensure ...
