Conditions aortic aneurysm, abdominal, carotid stenosis, peripheral arterial disease
Sponsor NavYash Gupta, MD
Collaborator Medtronic
Start date April 2013
End date August 2020
Trial size 255 participants
Trial identifier NCT01889485, EH12-224


This is a pilot study designed to validate our methods of recruitment, screening and data collection in the community. The project will help to establish the feasibility of the study design to lay the groundwork for a potentially larger study. The final study will allow us to estimate the incidence and prevalence of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), carotid artery stenosis, and peripheral artery disease (PAD) in different geographic areas in a large urban setting, as well as determine patient access to healthcare and treatment for vascular disease as related to geographic and racial differences.
