This is a prospective, nonrandomized, single-arm study using CSI Orbital Atherectomy System in patients with PAD (total occlusions or significant stenosis). Patients will be enrolled if th...
This study is designed to test the use of G-CSF in peripheral vascular disease. The investigators hypothesize that mobilization of angiogenic cells into the blood by granulocyte colony st...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and performance of the CorPath 200 System in the remote delivery and manipulation of guidewires and rapid exchange catheters for use in ...
Surgery performed with nerve blocks and sedation may be safer and provide better pain control compared to general anesthesia and opioid therapy in high-risk patient populations such as eld...
The purpose of this study is to determine if bone marrow derived adult stem cells are safe and effective in inducing development of new blood vessels (angiogenesis) in the legs of patients...
Osseointegration is an alternative treatment for amputees who are unable to wear or have difficulty wearing a socket prosthesis. Although the majority of limb amputations are due to vascular disease, ...
The current state of evaluating patients with peripheral artery disease and more specifically of evaluating medical devices used for peripheral vascular intervention (PVI) remains challenging because ...
Peripheral arterial disease is a major cause of morbidity and disability and has been consistently associated with an adverse overall prognosis. Oxidative stress has been linked to vascular disease, w...
Ankle-brachial index (ABI) at rest, Post-exercise ABI and Toe-Brachial Index (TBI) are essential diagnostic tools recommended for peripheral artery disease (PAD) diagnosis. Our study investigates the ...
An ergot derivative that has been used as a cerebral vasodilator and in peripheral vascular disease. It has been suggested to ameliorate cognitive deficits in cerebrovascular disease.
Flunarizine is a selective calcium entry blocker with calmodulin binding properties and histamine H1 blocking activity. It is effective in the prophylaxis of migraine, occlusive peripheral vascular disease, vertigo of central and peripheral origin, and as an adjuvant in the therapy of epilepsy.
A beta-adrenergic agonist that causes direct relaxation of uterine and vascular smooth muscle. Its vasodilating actions are greater on the arteries supplying skeletal muscle than on those supplying skin. It is used in the treatment of peripheral vascular disease and in premature labor.
A nonselective alpha-adrenergic antagonist. It is used in the treatment of hypertension and hypertensive emergencies, pheochromocytoma, vasospasm of RAYNAUD DISEASE and frostbite, clonidine withdrawal syndrome, impotence, and peripheral vascular disease.
A peripheral vasodilator that was formerly used in the management of peripheral and cerebral vascular disorders. It is hepatotoxic and fatalities have occurred. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1312)
