RESTORE: WeaRablEs for Stroke FuncTiOn in the NatuRal Environment

One of the most frequent consequences of a stroke is arm and hand motor impairment. In fact, more than 60% of stroke survivors have motor impairments on one side of the body, which may limit participation in everyday activities and quality of life. To date, only few studies look at what influences motor recovery,...

Predicting Ipsilesional Motor Deficits in Stroke with Dynamic Dominance Model

Some stroke patients have severe weakness in one arm and must rely on their less-affected arm for daily activities. Previous research has shown that in some patients, the less-affected arm also experiences weakness due to the stroke. This research is being done to find out if the less-affected arm can be...

Cognition as a moderator of motor learning post-stroke

The goal of this study is to understand how an individual’s cognitive function and brain structure may influence their ability to learn a new walking pattern. We hope to learn how people can best learn a new walking pattern when parts of the brain are damaged and cognitive function may...

The Medtronic CoreValve Evolut R US Clinical Study

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has become a routine treatment option at specialized heart centers treating patients with severe aortic stenosis who are at high risk for surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR). Medtronic has developed modifications to the Medtronic CoreValve System Transcatheter Aortic Valve frame and delivery catheter system to...

A novel, comprehensive approach to post-stroke gait rehabilitation

The purpose of this study is to understand how individuals control their walking after stroke while using visual information about their walking and while walking at different speeds. We hope to learn how people learn new walking patterns when parts of the brain are damaged and how this may change...

ASA/Plavix Resistance CLI

Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI) is defined as limb pain that occurs at rest, or impending limb loss that is caused by severe compromise of blood flow to the affected extremity. CLI is a major cause of death and disability (secondary to myocardial infarction, stroke and amputation). The mortality in patients...

Carotid Revascularization and Medical Management for Asymptomatic Carotid Stenosis Trial

Prevention of stroke involves managing and treating risk factors. Most strokes are caused when blood flow to a portion of the brain is blocked. One place this often happens is in the carotid artery. This blockage is called atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries. The purpose of this trial is...

Global Observational Study to Evaluate the Correlation Between Coronary and Carotid Atherosclerotic Disease (CAD) and Links with Clinical Outcomes

Observational study to collect F/U imaging & clinical endpoint data from pts. who successfully completed baseline coronary IVUS (intravascular ultrasound) imaging in the dal-PLAQUE 2 (DP2) study to determine the correlation & clinical relevance of such imaging as related to coronary artery disease (CAD). Pts. who have had baseline angiography/IVUS,...

Medtronic CoreValve® U.S. Expanded Use Study

The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Medtronic CoreValve® System (MCS) in a subset of subjects excluded from the U.S. Extreme Risk Pivotal Trial population due to one or more additional co-morbidities, as measured by a composite of all-cause death or major...

International Study of Comparative Health Effectiveness With Medical and Invasive Approaches (ISCHEMIA)

BACKGROUND: Evidence supporting a routine invasive practice paradigm for patients with stable ischemic heart disease (SIHD) is outdated. In strategy trials conducted in the 1970s, coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) improved survival as compared with no CABG in SIHD patients with high-risk anatomic features. The relevance of these studies today...
