  • BGC101 (EnEPC) Autologous Cell Therapy From Patient's Own Blood for Treatment of Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Evaluate the feasibility of an autologous cell preparation composed of a mixture of cells enriched for endothelial progenitor cells (EnEPCs) and multipotent adult hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells (HSPC) (BGC101), in the treatment of patients suffering from peripheral arterial disease (PAD) with critical limb ischemia (CLI) who have not responded to optimal pharmacological treatment or control of risk factors and/or had a revascularization failure, and do not have the option of further revascularization treatment.

  • PROMISE III: Percutaneous Deep Vein Arterialization for the Treatment of Late-Stage Chronic Limb-Threatening Ischemia

    open to eligible people ages 18-95

    A prospective, single-arm, multi-center study designed to gather additional information on the LimFlow System.

  • Factors Affect Outcomes in Cardiovascular Surgery

    “Physicians reviewing medical records to discover factors that affect outcomes in Cardiovascular Surgery”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Identify factors that contribute to perioperative morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing cardiac surgery that involves cardiopulmonary bypass. Identify factors that affect perioperative morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing cardiac surgery.

  • International Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD) "iSCAD" Registry

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The aim of "iSCAD," the International Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD) Registry, is to serve as an internationally collaborative, multicenter registry coordinated by an experienced and centralized coordinating center in an effort to increase the pace of participant recruitment, and thereby increase statistical power of studies related to SCAD. The ultimate goal of iSCAD Registry is to facilitate the development of best practices and clinical guidelines for preventing SCAD or its recurrence. This observational study will be prospective and retrospective in its recruitment and will collect clinical information to better understand the natural history and prognosis for SCAD.

  • Pediatric Pulmonary Hypertension Network (PPHNet) Informatics Registry

    open to eligible people ages up to 21 years

    Patients are being asked to be in this research study because medical researchers hope that by gathering information about a large number of children with pulmonary hypertension over time, their understanding of the disease process will increase and lead to better treatment. Investigators believe that pulmonary hypertension in children is different than pulmonary hypertension in adults and this study will help us understand those differences.

  • PIMR and Pulmonary Vascular Disease

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The findings from this innovative, first-in-man, prospective pilot study will elucidate the role of PIMR and RV-IMR in pre-capillary PH. The study cohort will consist of patients with pulmonary pressures ranging from normal (advanced lung disease patients undergoing lung transplant evaluation) to severe PH (PAH and CTEPH patients), and thus will allow for identification of a PIMR cutoff. Participants will include: 1) advanced lung disease patients undergoing bilateral heart catheterization as part of their pre-lung transplant work-up, and 2) newly referred patients to PAH and CTEPH clinics undergoing bilateral heart catheterization as part of standard of care work-up. All participants will undergo PIMR testing, and those with pre-capillary PH will also undergo pulmonary OCT and measurement of RV-IMR. The study seeks to define the relationship between PIMR and PH and to establish the PIMR threshold that identifies pulmonary microvascular dysfunction as well as to evaluate the association of PIMR and pulmonary vascular remodeling on OCT in patients with pre-capillary PH. In addition, the study will assess the relationship between RV-IMR and RV pressure overload among patients with pre-capillary PH.

  • Long-Term Efficacy and Safety of Ralinepag in Subjects With PAH Via an Open-Label Extension

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    Study ROR-PH-303, ADVANCE EXTENSION, is an open-label extension (OLE) study for participants with WHO Group 1 PAH who have participated in another Phase 2 or Phase 3 study of ralinepag.

  • Defibrotide Prophylaxis of Transplant Associated-Thrombotic Microangiopathy for Neuroblastoma

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This phase II trial tests how well defibrotide works in preventing transplant-associated thrombotic microangiopathy (TA-TMA) in patients with high-risk neuroblastoma undergoing tandem transplants (hematopoietic stem cell transplant [HSCT]). TMA is a potential life-threatening complication of stem cell transplant. TMA is a possible side effect of the chemotherapy (conditioning regimen) patients receive to help treat high-risk neuroblastoma, because these medicines can sometimes damage the blood vessel walls in the body. This damage leads to formation of tiny blood clots in organs, especially the kidney. This then causes organ damage and leads to problems with how they function. This study may help researchers learn how defibrotide may help prevent TMA before it starts, or help treat it once it starts among patients with high-risk neuroblastoma undergoing tandem transplants.

  • Temsirolimus Alone or Paired With Dexamethasone Delivered to the Adventitia to eNhance Clinical Efficacy After Femoropopliteal Revascularization

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This is a prospective, multi-center, pilot feasibility study to document the effects of adventitial delivery of temsirolimus or temsirolimus with dexamethasone sodium phosphate injection, USP, after revascularization of femoropopliteal lesions in symptomatic patients with moderate to severe claudication (Rutherford 2-3) or critical limb ischemia (CLI) with rest pain (Rutherford 4). Subjects will be followed for up to 60 months post index procedure.

  • PROMISE II Trial, Percutaneous Deep Vein Arterialization for the Treatment of Late-Stage Chronic Limb-Threatening Ischemia

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The LimFlow System is intended for endovascular, minimally invasive procedures in patients who have a clinical diagnosis of chronic limb-threatening ischemia and who have been determined to have no surgical or endovascular treatment option (i.e., "no option").

  • TORUS 2 IDE Clinical Study

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The primary objective of the TORUS 2 IDE Clinical Study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the TORUS Stent Graft System in the treatment of obstructive atherosclerotic lesions of the native SFA or the superficial femoral and/or proximal popliteal arteries.

  • Diabetes on REvascularization

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The presence of foot symptoms at rest or tissue necrosis in patients with peripheral artery disease is a medical urgency and represents a state of critical limb ischemia (CLI) where the risk of amputation, in the absence of revascularization, is high. No trial conducted to date in peripheral revascularization has determined the effect of diabetes on mechanism of revascularization failure. Therefore, this trial represents a unique opportunity to investigate the mechanisms by which diabetes affects surgical and endovascular revascularization procedures with the long-term goal of improving outcomes in CLI.
