Venous Stent Trial

VIVO Clinical Trial (Evaluation of the Zilver® Vena™ Venous Stent in the Treatment of Symptomatic Iliofemoral Venous Outflow Obstruction)





In cooperation with Cook Medical, The Vascular Experts are pleased to be the only center in New England for this multicenter, international trial, testing the first stent specifically designed for venous disease. Three of our expert vascular surgeons are enrolling patients in this trial: Dr. Gagne, Dr. Kucher, and Dr. Bowman.  Patients qualified to participate must be over the age of 18, can have a DVT (deep vein thrombosis) or chronic swelling and leg pain.  This trial aims at getting FDA approval for this specially designed venous stent which has been used in Europe for several years.



For all trials being performed by The Vascular Experts at one of our Southern Connecticut Vascular Center, please contact us via phone or website if you have any questions or would like additional information.
