First - In - Man Study to Assess the Safety and Feasibility of The Bashir™ Endovascular Catheter for the Treatment of Acute Pulmonary Embolism

Clinicaltrials.gov identifier NCT03927508

Recruitment Status Active, not recruiting

First Posted April 25, 2019

Study Description

Brief summary:

The Bashir™ Endovascular Catheter is a device intended for the localized infusion of therapeutic agents into the pulmonary artery and peripheral vasculature.

  • Condition or Disease:Pulmonary Embolism
  • Intervention/Treatment: Drug: r-tPA
    Device: The Bashir™ Endovascular Catheter
  • Phase: Phase 1
Detailed Description

The Bashir™ Endovascular Catheter has been designed to administer therapeutic agents in the peripheral vasculature. Because of the unique design of the catheter, with its six expandable infusion limbs, the Bashir™ Endovascular Catheter has the ability to: 1. Create a much larger central channel for blood flow, thereby utilizing the body's own endogenous fibrinolytic agents to lyse the clot, and 2. Greatly enhance the radial dispersion of a catheter-administered thrombolytic agent throughout the thrombus. Expansion of the multiple arms of the basket in the infusion catheter causes fissuring of the clot. The net result is that a greater surface area of clot is exposed to both endogenous and exogenously administered lytic agents, thereby promoting clot dissolution.

Outcome Measures
  • Primary Outcome Measures: 1. Safety: Major Bleeding [ Time Frame: Within 72 hours of initiation of r-tPA administration. ]
    Major Bleeding as defined by International Society of Thrombosis and Hemostasis (ISTH), within 72 hours of initiation of r-tPA administration. Bleeding criteria are as follows: Major Bleeding in Non-Surgical Patients Fatal bleeding; and/or Symptomatic bleeding in a critical area or organ, such as intracranial, intraspinal, intraocular, retroperitoneal, intraarticular or pericardial, or intramuscular with compartment syndrome; and/or Bleeding causing a fall in hemoglobin level of 2 g/dL (1.24 mmol/L) or more or leading to transfusion of two or more units of whole blood or red cells.
Eligibility Criteria
  • Ages Eligible for Study: 18 to 75 Years (Adult, Older Adult)
  • Sexes Eligible for Study: All
  • Accepts Healthy Volunteers: No
