Postoperative Score Predictive of the Prognosis of Acetabular Fractures

Jan 21st, 2022 - Acetal fractures are joint fractures that occur in the hip. These fractures affect the functional prognosis of the hip in the short, medium and long term. In the acetabulum fractures operated on, there is a radiological score in the literature allowing the prognosis to be predicted depending on the quality of the postoperative reduction. This score is based on the quality of postoperative reduc...

Mobile Manual Standing Wheelchair for SCI

Jan 21st, 2022 - Background - The investigators contend that for Veterans with SCI to stand enough to impact health outcomes, the standing device must enhance utility while integrating into their everyday life; at home, at work, and in the community. For this integration to occur, the investigators believe the standing device must fulfill the following criteria: 1. Easy access, 2. Straightforward standing mecha...

NPWT in Patients Undergoing Surgical Procedures for Management of GI Malignancies

A Study to Assess ASP0598 Otic Solution Following Topical Application in the Ear in Subjects With Chronic Tympanic Membrane Perforation (CTMP)

Jan 21st, 2022 - This study will consist of a dose escalation (single ascending dose - SAD and multiple ascending dose- MAD) and dose expansion (single dose expansion and/or multiple dose expansion). Dose escalation will consist of up to 4 cohorts for single ascending dose (SAD) and up to 2 cohorts for multiple ascending dose (MAD) with different dose levels. For SAD, after randomization on Day 1, participants ...

Surgical Extrusion: Volumetric and Insertion Analysis at 6 Months.

Jan 21st, 2022 - After informing the patient and obtaining his or her consent to surgical extrusion treatment, a model of the pre-treatment situation will be obtained by intraoral scanning and the attachment levels will be recorded by periodontal probing at 6 points around the tooth. The dimensional and positional changes of the soft tissue will be analyzed by superimposing both digital impressions in each pati...

TRACK-TBI Longitudinal Biomarker Study

Jan 21st, 2022 - This longitudinal observational study is part of the Transforming Research and Clinical Knowledge in Traumatic Brain Injury (TRACK-TBI) initiative, a multi-institutional project designed to characterize the acute and longer-term clinical, neuroimaging, and blood biomarker features of TBI. TRACK-TBI enrolled TBI patients at 18 Level 1 Trauma Centers in the US, across the age and injury spectrum....

Efficacy and Safety of the Application of Local Anaesthetic in Spray to Repair of 1st- 2nd Perineal Lacerations

Jan 21st, 2022 - The study aims to compare the effectiveness of pain treatment during the suturing of postpartum perineal lacerations with lidocaine spray vs skin infiltration. The hypothesis of the study is that the treatment of perineal pain with nebulization demonstrates greater efficacy vs the infiltration of mepivacaine hydrochloride in a population of patients subjected to suturing of postpartum laceratio...

Mechanisms, Predictors, and Social Determinants of Cardiotoxicity in Prostate Cancer

Jan 21st, 2022 - The investigators propose a prospective longitudinal cohort of prostate cancer patients treated with Androgen Deprivation Therapy (ADT) to determine the associations between social determinants of health (SDOH) and cardiotoxicity risk and to determine wither associations between SDOH and cardiotoxicity risk differs according to race. Patients will be followed with serial echo, blood draw, and s...

Adjunct VR Pain Management in Acute Brain Injury

Jan 21st, 2022 - Each participant will undergo one VR session and two control sessions. The VR session will take place in a VR environment developed in our own Shock Trauma Blended Reality Center and last 20-30 minutes. The environment is based upon literature reviews on chromotherapy. The control sessions will include a 2D-tablet based session that mimics the VR content and a content-less placement of the VR h...

Mechanisms, Predictors, and Social Determinants of Cardiotoxicity in Breast Cancer

Jan 21st, 2022 - The investigators propose a prospective longitudinal cohort of breast cancer patients treated with anthracyclines and/or trastuzumab to determine the associations between social determinants of health (SDOH) and cardiotoxicity risk and to determine whether associations between SDOH and cardiotoxicity risk differ according to race. Patients will be followed with serial echo, blood draw, and surv...

Improving Ventilatory Capacity in Those With Chronic High Level SCI

Jan 21st, 2022 - Chemoreceptive regulatory feedback is crucial for precise ventilatory control, especially during exercise. However, individuals with high-level SCI have a reduced chemoreceptive drive to breathe. Studies have shown lesser increases in minute ventilation and mouth pressure during hypercapnia in those with tetraplegia. Peripheral factors rather than central factors appear to cause the reduction o...

Telemedicine Makes the Patient Stay in Hospital at Home

Jan 21st, 2022 - The goals of rehabilitation are to improve functional level, decrease secondary morbidity and enhance health-related quality of life. The costs associated with pressure injury are considerable. In addition to direct treatment- related costs, pressure injury also impact the hospital performance metrics. On top of the financial implications, pressure injury have a significant impact on patient mo...

Assessing Ventilator Safety in Patients on Pressure-Support Ventilation

Jan 21st, 2022 - Ventilator-induced lung injury (VILI) is known to cause significant morbidity and mortality in patients with acute respiratory failure. Most studies on VILI have involved the effects of inappropriate (often excessive) mechanical ventilator settings. More recently, it has been noted that similar lung damage can be caused by large, patient generated, uncontrolled tidal volumes and driving pressur...
