Comparison between iloprost and alprostadil in the treatment of Raynaud's phenomenon. [2004]
OBJECTIVE: The prostanoids iloprost and alprostadil are widely used to treat ischaemic changes in patients with Raynaud's phenomenon (RP), but the optimal regimen is poorly defined. We evaluated whether there are differences between iloprost and alprostadil, in terms of either clinical efficacy or of laboratory data, with the aim of assisting in the treatment of connective tissue disease (CTD)-associated RP... CONCLUSION: Iloprost and alprostadil were both of benefit in CTD-associated RP, without significant differences in either clinical efficacy or circulating markers. However, ease of handling and the lower price favours alprostadil.

Clinical Trials Related to Caverject Impulse (Alprostadil)

The Use of Prostaglandin E1 in Head and Neck Microsurgery [Recruiting]
Prostaglandin E1 (PGE1 )has been shown to have vasodilatation and anti-thrombosis effects, so it is used by some surgeons after microsurgery to keep the patency of the anastomosed small vessels. However, PGE 1 may also causes some complications, like pleural effusion or deep vein thrombosis. Therefore, it remains uncertain whether a routine use of PGE 1 after head and neck microsurgery is justified. We aim to test the hypothesis that PGE 1 increases postoperative vessel patency rate in patients undergoing head and neck microsurgery, with a comparable complication rate as the control group.

Protective Effect of Lipo-PGE1 on Myocardial Injury Following Percutaneous Coronary Intervention [Not yet recruiting]
we hypothesized that periprocedural treatment with intravenous lipo-PGE1 may reduce myocardial injury and improve clinical outcomes in patients undergoing PCI.

Prostaglandin E1 in Outpatients With Intermittent Claudication [Completed]
Investigate, under outpatient conditions, both the effect of 4 weeks of daily treatment with Prostaglandin E1 and that of 4 weeks of interval treatment (two infusions per week) on the pain-free walking distance in patients with Intermittent Claudication.

Alprostadil in Maculopathy Study (AIMS) [Terminated]
