Peripheral artery disease is a disease that contributes to significant morbidity and mortality of millions of Americans yearly. Very little is known about the pathophysiology of atheroscl...
This study represents an important step to validate the use of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEU) as a clinical research tool that can be used as a biologic readout of new therapies for Pe...
This is a prospective, multicenter, randomized trial to determine the mechanisms of vascular healing. The study will evaluate subjects with peripheral artery disease (PAD) who require an e...
This study evaluates the local inflammatory and resolution response of patients undergoing peripheral vascular intervention like an angioplasty of the superficial femoral artery or poplite...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of two doses of PVS-10200, an allogeneic cellular therapy, delivered as a single injection following percutaneous transluminal ("balloon...
Practice guidelines recommend that patients with peripheral artery disease receive antiplatelets, statins and ACE inhibitors or angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs). We sought to quantify rates of pre...
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the major cause of mortality worldwide. Coronary artery disease (CAD) contributes to half of mortalities caused by CVD. The mainstay of management of CAD is medical the...
Magnetic resonance angiography is an important diagnostic modality in the evaluation of peripheral artery disease. It has gained popularity within the last two decades. It is accurate, non-invasive, a...
Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is an underdiagnosed prevalent disease which implies high cardiovascular risk. Professionals usually depend on physical examination to screen for PAD.
In this pilot study, we tested the hypothesis that acute lower leg heating (LLH) increases postheating popliteal artery blood flow and 6-minute walk distance in patients with peripheral artery disease...
Insertion of a catheter into a peripheral artery, vein, or airway for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes.
Comparison of the BLOOD PRESSURE between the BRACHIAL ARTERY and the POSTERIOR TIBIAL ARTERY. It is a predictor of PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE.
Incision of tissues for injection of medication or for other diagnostic or therapeutic procedures. Punctures of the skin, for example may be used for diagnostic drainage; of blood vessels for diagnostic imaging procedures.
The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.
Visualization of the heart structure and cardiac blood flow for diagnostic evaluation or to guide cardiac procedures via techniques including ENDOSCOPY (cardiac endoscopy, sometimes refered to as cardioscopy), RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; TOMOGRAPHY; or ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
