Study for People Undergoing a Cardio-cerebrovascular Procedure at Buffalo General or Gates Vascular Institute
Use of transcranial doppler (TCD) robotic system to detect changes in cerebral perfusion and distal embolism during cardio-cerebrovascular procedures
This study enrolls adults who are having a cardiac or cerebrovascular procedure that uses a device called a transcranial doppler. This study is collecting data to look at the changes in blood flow during these procedures. The data collected will help researchers develop techniques and strategies to minimize risk for stroke for future patients. Your participation in the study will not involve anything in addition to the care you are already getting- the study collects information that is already being collected as part of your care. We expect that you will be in this research study for few days until your discharge from the hospital up to your 3 month follow up visit. This study takes place only at Buffalo General Medical Center and Gates Vascular Institute. Compensation is not available for this study.
1. Prospectively collect clinical and doppler data related to cerebral embolism and perfusion during cardio-cerebrovascular procedures.
2. Identify procedures and techniques with higher risk of cerebral embolism and perfusion changes.
Patients who have had a cardiac or cerebrovascular procedure using TCD monitoring at Buffalo General Medical Center or Gates Vascular Institute.
Only patients who have been invited to join this study by a study team member may enroll.
