Narrowed or Blocked Blood Vessel in the Thigh
narrowed or blocked blood vessel in the thigh clinical trial
UVa Health System, Department of Interventional Radiology seeks Women and Men, ages 18 and older with a narrowed or blocked blood vessel in the thigh for research study.
The purpose of the study is to test the safety and effectiveness of the investigational Misago™ Self Expanding Stent system in stenoses (narrowings) or occlusions (blockages) in the Superficial Femoral Artery (thigh artery). A stent is a small wire mesh tube that is used to prop open a blood vessel that is narrowed or blocked. This study involves 7 study visits over 3 years. This includes the time you are in the hospital for the procedure to treat the blockages/narrowing in the blood vessel in your thigh and follow up clinic visits back at UVA at 30 days, 6, 12, 24, and 36 months after your procedure. Each of the follow up visits will last about 2 hours. Many of these may be part of your regular visits to your doctors at the University of Virginia.
Participants will be paid a total of $25.00 for completion of the questionnaires at each visit. The maximum amount paid will be $125 if complete all of the questionnaires are completed
