  • Aneurysm Genetic Risk in Patients With QIB Changes

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Intracranial aneurysm rupture is a leading cause of hemorrhagic strokes which carry high mortality and disability rates as well as high healthcare costs. Unruptured intracranial aneurysms (UIA) are common in the general population, occurring in 1-2% of individuals. Previous studies have shown that UIA growth and rupture are strongly associated with each other, with growing aneurysms 9-12 times more likely to rupture, and nearly all aneurysms growing prior to rupture. Thanks to advanced medical imaging, UIA are now more and more often detected incidentally. However not all aneurysms qualify for preventive surgical or interventional procedures according to current International Study of Unruptured Intracranial Aneurysms (ISUIA) guidelines, and some must therefore be monitored for growth. Current guidelines are based heavily on size, an inconsistent predictor of future growth. To improve management strategies for individual patients and more comprehensively assess aneurysm risk, the investigators propose to identify risk factors related to growth. Aneurysm etiology is multifactorial, with both genetic and environmental contributions to aneurysm formation, growth, and rupture. Exploring new risk factors based on aneurysm natural history and understanding the mechanisms underlying aneurysm rupture have been extensive research areas. As previous studies have shown that quantitative imaging biomarkers (QIB) can provide a more accurate assessment of the characteristics of aneurysms, the investigators propose a combined study which identifies QIB associated with aneurysm growth to identify factors related to growth.

  • Framing Eighteen Coils in Cerebral Aneurysms Trial

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This trial is being conducted in order to compare angiographic outcomes in patients receiving 0.014-0.0155" platinum framing and filling coils (larger diameter coils) versus those treated solely with coils less than 0.014" (with a standard diameter). Hypothesis: Angiographic occlusion at follow-up imaging will be more frequent in patients receiving 0.014-0.0155" platinum coils during embolization compared to those receiving smaller-diameter coils.

  • Infliximab Therapy for Dolichoectactic Vertebrobasilar Aneurysms

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    Patients harboring dolichoectactic vertebrobasilar (DVB) aneurysms are at risk of suffering SAH, ischemic stroke, and/or brainstem compression and many patients are not offered invasive treatment due to the futility of existing surgical methods. Consequently, there is demand for development of medical therapy for DVB aneurysms

  • Physician Modified Endograft For Complex Aortic Aneurysm Repair

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The physician modified endograft is intended for treating complex, pararenal, juxtarenal and thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms requiring coverage of renal arteries, the superior mesenteric artery or the celiac trunk in high-risk patients who do not have an option for endovascular repair with an FDA approved endograft and have an appropriate anatomy. There will be one investigational site with a total of 40 subjects to be enrolled. Time to complete enrollment will be 24 months and the subject follow-up time will be five years from last subject enrollment. The primary safety endpoint is freedom from major adverse events (MAE) at 30 days or during hospitalization if this exceeds 30 days. The primary effectiveness endpoint is the proportion of study subjects with treatment success at one year. The subjects will be followed at one month, six months, one year, and yearly thereafter for a total period of five years. Subjects will be followed up clinically for life. Clinical exam follow up may be phone or video visit with CT scan evaluation and duplex ultrasound as needed. The proportion of treatment group subjects that achieve and maintain treatment success annually to five years will be investigated.

  • Prediction of Outcomes After Surgery for Unruptured Intracranial Aneurysms

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    Accurate preoperative identification of patients at high risk for adverse outcomes would be clinically advantageous, as it would allow enhanced resource preparation, better surgical decision-making, enhanced patient education and informed consent, and potentially even modification of certain modifiable risk factors. The aim of the Prediction of adverse events after microsurgery for intracranial unruptured aneurysms (PRAEMIUM) study is therefore to develop and externally validate a clinically applicable, robust ML-based prediction tool based on multicenter data from a range of international centers.

  • Treatment in Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm: Surgery vs Surveillance

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    The ascending aorta conducts blood from the heart to the rest of the body. The ascending aorta can become enlarged, and the risk of tearing and rupturing becomes higher with larger aorta. When the ascending aorta tears or ruptures, the risk dying is high even if surgery is done as soon as possible. Traditionally, when the ascending aorta gets above 5.5 cm, surgery is recommended to replace the aorta. However, this threshold is based relatively weak evidence, and sometimes patients with smaller aorta can tear or rupture. On the other hand, surgery carries its own risk as well. Since there are risk of waiting or doing surgery, there is currently no great support for either approach for patients with a smaller aorta. In the TITAN SvS trial, patients with an ascending aorta between 5.0 to 5.5 cm is assigned by chance to the early surgery group, in which they will undergo replacement of aorta, or the surveillance group, in which they will be closely monitored. The chance of dying or suffer tearing or rupture of aorta between the two groups will be compared. The result of the trial will guide future practice for patients with enlarged ascending aorta. This is a prospective, multi-centre randomized control trial that compares the all-cause mortality, aneurysm-related aortic events, rate of stroke, and quality of life for those patients undergoing early elective ascending aortic surgery to those patients undergoing surveillance. Patients referred for an ascending aortic aneurysm that meets the inclusion criteria will be randomized to the early elective surgery group or the surveillance group. Recruitment will end when the desired sample size is reached, and the patients will be followed for a minimum 2-year period. The primary objective of the trial is to compare the composite outcome of the all-cause mortality and incidence of acute aortic events between surveillance and elective ascending aortic surgery for patients with degenerative or bicuspid valve-related ascending aortic aneurysm after 2 years of follow up. The hypothesis is that the early surgery group will have a significantly lower all-cause mortality and incidence of acute aortic events at 2 years of follow up compare to the surveillance group. The result of this trial will provide evidence based guidance in the appropriate management of ascending aortic aneurysm based on the size criteria, and establish a large database for future investigations.
