An Evaluation of Vascular Grafts for Lower Extremity Arterial Bypass

The PI of this project was: Jamie Thomson, PhD

This project was funded by: NIH

The term of this project was: April 2019 to June 2020

The number of subjects scanned during this project was: 25

The purpose of this study is to evaluate engineered vascular grafts in the lower extremity arterial bypass (femoral->femoral) model. Ultrasound will be used to monitor native artery and graft patency prior to and after bypass surgery. MRI will be used to image the graft, as well as the native artery in the lower limb, prior to study endpoint.
