  • Interventional Radiology Research

  • The interventional radiologists at The Miriam, along with doctors at Rhode Island Hospital, are conducting a multi-center, randomized, NIH-sponsored study, the ATTRACT trial (Acute Venous Thrombosis: Thrombus Removal with Catheter-directed Thrombolysis).

    ATTRACT is the first major national trial of a catheter-based treatment for deep vein thrombosis and will evaluate the use of clot-dissolving drugs in combination with clot removal devices to prevent post thrombotic syndrome in patients with DVT.

    Other NIH-sponsored studies conducted by the department of interventional radiology include the CORAL trial (Cardiovascular Outcomes with Renal Atherosclerotic Lesions) and the CLEVER study (Claudication: Exercise vs. Endoluminal Revascularization).All three studies attest to The Miriam's commitment to academic medicine and research.
