Hi - I made an error. It's www.clinicaltrials.gov
It's a US government website.
The federal government also controls the reimbursement of this procedure through an agency called CMS. They establish the DRG codes for the hospital reimbursement as well as the CPT codes for the physician reimbursement. There is a reimbursement for the venograms presently but not for the venoplasty or angioplasty of the stenosed veins.
There pilot and future pivotal studies are important to learn the safety and efficacy of the procedure. Then groups can lobby the US government to set reimbursement for this procedure.
Once there's a DRG in place for the hospital to get paid, then this procedure will take off like a rocket.
