Peripheral Artery Disease clinical trials at UCLA

24 in progress, 11 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Comparing Perclose to Statseal in Conjunction With Perclose in Femoral 6 French Arteriotomy Closure

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of this clinical study is to compare how well two different devices for achieving hemostasis perform in patients undergoing transfemoral procedures with 6 French Access. Both devices are approved by the FDA for this use, and have already been used by clinicians on patients undergoing transfemoral procedures. It is believed that the use of both devices in combination compared to the Perclose alone will shorten the time that it takes to 'seal' the artery, resulting in a shorter period of time that patients would need to lay flat.

  • Women's IschemiA TRial to Reduce Events In Non-ObstRuctive CAD

    open to eligible females ages 18-100

    The Ischemia-IMT (Ischemia-Intensive Medical Treatment Reduces Events in Women with Non-Obstructive CAD), subtitle: Women's Ischemia Trial to Reduce Events in Non-Obstructive CAD (WARRIOR) trial is a multicenter, prospective, randomized, blinded outcome evaluation (PROBE design) evaluating intensive statin/ACE-I (or ARB)/aspirin treatment (IMT) vs. usual care (UC) in 4,422 symptomatic women patients with symptoms and/or signs of ischemia but no obstructive CAD. The hypothesis is that IMT will reduce major adverse coronary events (MACE) 20% vs. UC. The primary outcome is first occurrence of MACE as death, nonfatal MI, nonfatal stroke/transient ischemic attack (TIA) or hospitalization for heart failure or angina. Secondary outcomes include quality of life, time to "return to duty"/work, health resource consumption, angina, cardiovascular (CV) death and primary outcome components. Events will be adjudicated by an experienced Clinical Events Committee (CEC). Follow-up will be 3-years using 50 sites: primarily VA and Active Duty Military Hospitals/Clinics and a National Patient-Centered Clinical Research Network (PCORnet) clinical data research network (CDRN)(OneFlorida Consortium). This study is being conducted to determine whether intensive medication treatment to modify risk factors and vascular function in women patients with coronary arteries showing no flow limit obstruction but with cardiac symptoms (i.e., chest pain, shortness of breath) will reduce the patient's likelihood of dying, having a heart attack, stroke/TIA or being hospitalized for cardiac reasons. The results will provide evidence data necessary to inform future guidelines regarding how best to treat this growing population of patients, and ultimately improve the patient's cardiac health and quality of life and reduce health-care costs.
