Study for Adults with Peripheral Arterial Disease
Protocol: STUDY00007539
Full Title
The GORE VBX FORWARD Clinical Study: A Comparison of the GORE VIABAHN VBX Balloon Expandable Endoprosthesis to Bare Metal Stenting for Patients with Complex Iliac Occlusive Disease
The University at Buffalo (UB) Department of Surgery is looking for adults that have been diagnosed with peripheral arterial disease (or when plaque builds up on artery walls and makes it more difficult for blood to flow) for a study. The goal of the study is to see if there are differences between two devices (the VBX Device and the Bare Metal Stent) in helping to treat peripheral arterial disease.

Participants will be enrolled in the study for 5 years. They will be randomly assigned (which happens by chance, like flipping a coin) to receive either the VBX or Bare Metal Stent. There will be follow-up visits at 1 month, 6 months, 1 year, 2 years, 3 years, 4 years, and 5 years after the surgery to monitor your health and how well the device is performing. There will also be physical exams, surveys, medication reviews, and imaging tests. Participants will earn $75 for completing the 1 month, 6 month, 2 year, 3 year, and 4 year follow-up visit. They will be paid $100 for completing the 1 year and 5 year follow-up visits.
