This trial explores the application of different hip replacement materials in elderly patients with unstable intertrochanteric fracture, and aims to provide the experience and basis for hip arthroplasty in elderly osteoporosis patients with unstable intertrochanteric fracture.
The body immunity is important to the development of tumor. The immune system is in charge of monitoring and cleaning tumor cells in circulation. Anesthesia may alter the immune response and affect the elimination of tumor cells. The purpose of the trial is to test whether inhalational anesthetic is relevant to tumor metastasis and recurrence of patients undergoing colorectal cancer resection through depression of lymphocytes-mediated immunity.
The aim of this study is to evaluate success, efficacy, feasibility and safety of a simple five step ultrasound guided local anesthetic infiltration technique for unilateral open inguinal hernia repair and to determine the non-inferiority of the block to spinal anesthesia by comparing intraoperative and postoperative complications, pain control and patient and surgeon satisfaction of the block with spinal anesthesia.
The study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of the implant and IOP lowering effects with or without glaucoma medications. The procedure will be a stand-alone surgery. Overall, the patient will be asked to perform several examinations up to 24 months after surgery. The primary efficacy objective of the present study is to show the IOP reduction under medication 6 months after surgery compared to medicated diurnal IOP at screening.
Purpose: The ATTACH trial, as currently designed, will primarily test whether a treatment with Amiodarone for at least 6 months has a trypanocidal effect among individuals with mild-to-moderate Chronic Chagas Cardiomyopathy. A secondary goal will be to confirm, in this population, a clinical benefit from this treatment (in terms of reducing mortality or cardiac arrhythmic events), and to explore whether a potential trypanocidal effect is associated with a clinical benefi...
Today, there is no simple tool for measuring patient anxiety. The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate the ability of the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) to measure anxiety in painful hospitalized patients, and to correlate it to STAI-Ya and HAD-7A auto questionnaires.
- HBV is not curable with persistent HBsAg even after the disappearance of HBV DNA. - HBsAg > 1000 IU/ml is associated with the risk of virological recurrence and HCC. - There is an impaired immune response to HBsAg and HBV vaccine is an easily available, cost-effective, non-harmful method of stimulating immunity.
This study aims to verify superiority of pemetrexed maintenance to observation for patient without disease progression after 1 st line cisplatin-based chemotherapy.
To assess the safety and effectiveness of the SAPIEN 3 (Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine, California) transcatheter heart valve in patients with a failing mitral bioprosthetic valve.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of apatinib in combination with second-line FOLFOX or FOLFIRI for metastatic colorectal cancer in patients with disease progression during or after first-line therapy.
The aim of this study is to demonstrate the efficacy of in-line filtration in reducing the incidence of postoperative phlebitis associated with peripheral short-term vascular access. In this controlled trial, 268 surgical patients are 1:1 randomised to in-line filtration (study group) and standard care (control group). The incidence of phlebitis (defined as Visual Infusion Phlebitis, VIP score≥2) within 48hrs postoperatively is compared between the two groups, as well as the...

This study evaluates efficacy of TAK- 228 and TAK- 117 followed by cisplatin and nab paclitaxel in patients with metastatic triple negative breast cancer.
The overarching goal of this study is to determine whether rituximab (RTX) offers effectiveness and safety advantages over other commonly used approved Disease-Modifying Drugs (DMT) in the largest real-world population-based structured prospective follow-up cohort of Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS) patients. The study will include both treatment naïve patients starting their first DMT and patients switching from a previous first line DMT (escalation/second-line).
Particulate matter(PM) exposure has been shown to increase the morbidity and mobility of a variety of respiratory diseases, including COPD and asthma. This study focus on the effects of PM on the pulmonary function and acute exacerbation of COPD and asthma patients in China, where PM exposure is much heavier than the United States and European countries.
Pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM), a disease characterized by diffuse cystic changes in the lung, is a rare disorder that affects almost exclusively women. The main objectives of this study are to accurately evaluate the prevalence of LAM, the status of disease, the diagnosis and treatment, the quality of care, and the health related outcomes in China.
Background Major spinal surgery tend to be lengthy with an increased risk of hypothermia. A quality improvement project of patients undergoing major spinal surgery showed that 67 % were hypothermic at the beginning of surgery. Several patients expressed a feeling of coldness at the arrival of the operating theatre. Aim To evaluate if Bairhuggers Full Access Underbody blanket can prevent hypothermia at initiation if used as prewarming and intraoperative warming co...
