Previous Venous RCPs

 

Topic: Submassive Pulmonary Embolism Short and Long-term Outcomes: Where are We and Where Do We Need to Be 
Lead investigator: Akhilesh Sista, MD, FSIR, Weill Cornell Medical College, N.Y.
Date: December 2015

After the RCP, Dr. Sista submitted a grant to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI).

After the RCP, Dr. Sista also published his findings in the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology.

Topic: Critical issues in chronic central venous access and pathways for investigation
Lead investigator: Kevin Baskin, MD, Advanced Interventional Institute, Cranberry Township, Pa.
Date: October 2014

After the RCP, Dr. Baskin led the Venous Access: National Guideline and Registry Development (VANGUARD) Symposium at the National Institutes of Health from May 12-13, 2016. The SIR Foundation organized and supported the meeting to gather multiple stakeholders for discussion of future venous access research efforts, such as vocabulary development and registry design.

After the RCP, Dr. Baskin published his findings in the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology.

Topic: Interventional Endovascular Management of Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency in Patients with Multiple Sclerosis
Lead investigators: Ziv Haskal, MD, FSIR, FAHA, FACR, FCIRSE, Editor, Journal of Vascular & Interventional Radiology, University of Maryland Medical Center, Baltimore, Md.;
Gary Siskin, MD, FSIR, Professor and Chairman, Department of Radiology, Albany Medical College, Albany, N.Y.
Date: October 2010

After the RCP, Dr. Haskal and Dr. Siskin were awarded the Funding Source Development Grant from SIR Foundation.

 


Topic: Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) Filters
Lead investigator: John Kaufman, MD, FSIR, Dotter Interventional Institute, Portland, Ore.
Date: June 2007

After the RCP, Dr. Kaufman published his findings in the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology.

Topic: Venous Interventions
Lead investigator: Suresh Vedantham, MD, FSIR, Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, St. Louis, Mo.
Date: October 2004

After the RCP, Dr. Vedantham was awarded an R01 grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The Acute Venous Thrombosis: Thrombus Removal with Adjunctive Catheter-directed Thrombolysis (ATTRACT) trial was designed to evaluate the ability of catheter-directed thrombolysis to reduce the incidence and severity in patients with acute proximal deep vein thrombosis (DVT). ATTRACT received $10.2 million in funding, and has completed accrual of its originally planned cohort of 692 patients.
