Aneurysm clinical trials at UCSF
6 in progress, 4 open to new patients

  • Branched Aortic Arch Study

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a study to assess the safety and effectiveness of endovascular treatment of aortic aneurysms involving the proximal aortic arch. The investigational operation involves placing a stent-graft over the aortic aneurysm.

  • Endovascular Exclusion of Thoracoabdominal and/or Paravisceral Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a study to assess the safety and effectiveness of endovascular treatment of thoracoabdominal (TAAA) and paravisceral abdominal (PVAAA) aortic aneurysms. The investigational operation involves placing a stent-graft over the aortic aneurysm.

  • Framing Eighteen Coils in Cerebral Aneurysms Trial

    open to eligible people ages 18-80

    This trial is being conducted in order to compare angiographic outcomes in patients receiving 0.014-0.0155" platinum framing and filling coils (larger diameter coils) versus those treated solely with coils less than 0.014" (with a standard diameter). Hypothesis: Angiographic occlusion at follow-up imaging will be more frequent in patients receiving 0.014-0.0155" platinum coils during embolization compared to those receiving smaller-diameter coils.

  • Use of Fish Oil to Reduce Inflammation During Endovascular Abdominal Aortic Repair

    open to eligible people ages 40-90

    The purpose of this study is to determine if high-dose PUFA supplementation in patients undergoing EVAR for infra-renal AAA reduces the peri-operative inflammation.

  • Infliximab Therapy for Dolichoectactic Vertebrobasilar Aneurysms

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    Patients harboring dolichoectactic vertebrobasilar (DVB) aneurysms are at risk of suffering SAH, ischemic stroke, and/or brainstem compression and many patients are not offered invasive treatment due to the futility of existing surgical methods. Consequently, there is demand for development of medical therapy for DVB aneurysms

  • Zenith® Fenestrated Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) Endovascular Graft Continued Access Study

    Sorry, not accepting new patients

    The Zenith®Fenestrated AAA Endovascular Graft Clinical Study is a clinical investigation approved by the US FDA to study the safety and effectiveness of the Zenith® Fenestrated AAA Endovascular Graft in the treatment of abdominal aortic and aorto-iliac aneurysms.
