Venous Insufficiency clinical trials at UCSF
1 research study open to eligible people
Venous insufficiency is when your veins have trouble sending blood from your legs back to your heart. There is a trial at UCSF called the C-TRACT trial that is trying to see if a special type of treatment called endovascular therapy can help reduce pain and swelling caused by this condition. The goal of this trial is to find out if this treatment can help improve the quality of life for people with venous insufficiency.
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
The purpose of this study is to determine if the use of image-guided, endovascular therapy (EVT) is an effective strategy with which to reduce Post Thrombotic Syndrome (PTS) disease severity and improve quality of life in patients with established disabling iliac-obstructive post thrombotic syndrome (DIO-PTS).
