Chronic Venous Thrombosis: Relief with Adjunctive Catheter-Directed Therapy (C-TRACT)
The NIH-sponsored Chronic Venous Thrombosis: Relief with Adjunctive Catheter-Directed Therapy (C-TRACT) study is a multicenter, randomized trial lead by Suresh Vedantham, MD, FSIR. The goal of this study is to determine if the use of image-guided, endovascular therapy effectively reduces post-thrombotic syndrome disease severity in patients with disabling iliac-obstructive post-thrombotic syndrome. This study is planning to enroll approximately 374 subjects at 20-40 clinical centers. SIR Foundation encourages SIR members to serve as site investigators or refer patients to sits.
