Best Endovascular Versus Best Surgical Therapy in Patients With Critical Limb Ischemia

ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT02060630
Study Type: Interventional (Clinical Trial)
Current Status: Active, Not Recruiting
Utah Principal Investigator: Dr. Benjamin Brooke, MD, PhD

Brief Summary: This study compares the effectiveness of best available surgical treatment with best available endovascular treatment in adults with critical limb ischemia (CLI) who are eligible for both treatment options.


BEST Critical Limb Ischemia (vCLI) Registry

ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT04191746
Study Type: Observational (Patient Registry)
Current Status: Recruiting
Utah Principal Investigator: Dr. Benjamin Brooke, MD, PhD

Brief Summary: For subjects with critical limb ischemia, identify patient, physician/hospital, and geographic factors associated with variations in treatment strategies; compare treatments and outcomes, including quality of life, cost and cost effectiveness, at 6, 12 months.


Global Registry for Endovascular Aortic Treatment (GREAT)

ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01658787
Study type: Observational (Patient Registry)
Current Status: Active, Not Recruiting
Utah Principal Investigator: Dr. Benjamin Brooke, MD, PhD

Brief Summary: This is a prospective observational cohort registry designed to obtain data on device performance and clinical outcomes of patients treated with Gore Endovascular Aortic products.


Bard LifeStent Popliteal Artery Stent Project

Study type: Quality Improvement, Observational
Current Status: Active, Recruiting
Utah Principal Investigator: Dr. Larry Kraiss, MD

Brief Summary: The Bard LifeStent® Vascular Stent Systems received FDA approval for treatment of popliteal artery atherosclerosis, with a requirement for post-approval surveillance. This project is intended to confirm these findings in the real world practice of VQI centers. Nonidentifiable data will be shared with Bard Peripheral Vascular from this project and a Steering Committee of the SVS PSO will analyze and publish the outcomes.


TransCarotid Revascularization Surveillance Project of the Society for Vascular Surgery Vascular Quality Initiative

ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT02850588
Study type: Observational (Patient Registry)
Current Status: Active, Recruiting
Utah Principal Investigators: Dr. Benjamin Brooke, MD, PhD; Dr. Larry Kraiss, MD

Brief Summary: The TCAR Surveillance Project (TSP) is an initiative of the Society for Vascular Surgery Patient Safety Organization (SVS PSO). The TSP is a surveillance registry designed to monitor the safety and effectiveness of transcarotid stents placed directly in to the carotid artery while reversing blood flow within the carotid artery to reduce stroke risk. It will compare this less-invasive surgical procedure with standard carotid endarterectomy in centers that participate in the Vascular Quality Initiative (VQI).
