Noninvasive Evaluation for Carotid Artery Stenosis: The Carotid Stenotic Scan

2019-08-19 19:46:37 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine the accuracy of a new non-invasive device, the Carotid Stenotic Scan (CSS), to check for stenosis of the internal carotid artery (ICA) as compared to a carotid duplex ultrasound study.

Description

Currently, carotid duplex ultrasound is the primary diagnostic tool for the evaluation for ICA stenosis and must be performed by a trained and certified vascular technologist using advanced duplex imaging equipment and with subsequent interpretation by a trained physician. this test is not considered suitable for screening for disease. It would be of value to develop an accurate, reliable, low-cost, and easily accessible tool to screen for extra-cranial ICA disease in an office based setting. However, such a tool would require novel technology that allows for quick, accurate, reproducible, and safe evaluation.

This study will evaluate a new technology called the Carotid Stenotic Scan (CSS) developed by CVR Medical. The CSS instrument uses sensitive transducers to detect low frequency pressure fluctuations associated with flow disturbances downstream from areas of arterial narrowing.

Subjects will undergo a clinically ordered clinical carotid duplex ultrasound as part of standard of care. Subjects will have a noninvasive CSS assessment either before or after the carotid duplex ultrasound.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Narrowing or stricture of any part of the CAROTID ARTERIES, most often due to atherosclerotic plaque formation. Ulcerations may form in atherosclerotic plaques and induce THROMBUS formation. Platelet or cholesterol emboli may arise from stenotic carotid lesions and induce a TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK; CEREBROVASCULAR ACCIDENT; or temporary blindness (AMAUROSIS FUGAX). (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp822-3)

Blood clot formation in any part of the CAROTID ARTERIES. This may produce CAROTID STENOSIS or occlusion of the vessel, leading to TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK; CEREBRAL INFARCTION; or AMAUROSIS FUGAX.

Damages to the CAROTID ARTERIES caused either by blunt force or penetrating trauma, such as CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; THORACIC INJURIES; and NECK INJURIES. Damaged carotid arteries can lead to CAROTID ARTERY THROMBOSIS; CAROTID-CAVERNOUS SINUS FISTULA; pseudoaneurysm formation; and INTERNAL CAROTID ARTERY DISSECTION. (From Am J Forensic Med Pathol 1997, 18:251; J Trauma 1994, 37:473)

Pathological conditions involving the CAROTID ARTERIES, including the common, internal, and external carotid arteries. ATHEROSCLEROSIS and TRAUMA are relatively frequent causes of carotid artery pathology.

Transient complete or partial monocular blindness due to retinal ischemia. This may be caused by emboli from the CAROTID ARTERY (usually in association with CAROTID STENOSIS) and other locations that enter the central RETINAL ARTERY. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p245)
