Research at VIV

The team at Vascular Institute of Virginia is leading the way in the development and refinement of new procedures and tools to treat common diseases. Our physician leaders have initiated their own clinical studies and have also collaborated with industry sponsors or other Institutions to bring a successful R & D program to VIV.

Drs. Piechowiak & Bagla are studying the effects of embolization on the treatment of pain related to Knee Arthritis (read more about this here). Dr. Piechowiak presented the data from an international study they are leading at the most recent Society of Interventional Radiology Meeting. They are leading the way with the First US Study on the treatment of pain related to Knee Arthritis. More information on the clinical trial can be found here. https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02850068?term=bagla&rank=2

Prostate Artery Embolization (PAE) has changed the way we look at the treatment of BPH. Dr. Bagla led the first US trial on PAE more than 5 years ago and his team has the largest experience in the US. Drs. Piechowiak and Bagla presented their most recent clinical research data on the reduction of radiation during PAE at their center. They have also recently published literature on the lower cost of PAE vs TURP and that Manual techniques are similar to success rates of Robotics, with lower cost.
