The purpose of the study is to investigate the impact of unilateral or bilateral diaphragm plication in a prospective randomised controlled way on symptoms, pulmonary function including gas exchange, respiratory muscle strength, exercise capacity and breathing during sleep in patients with proven uni- or bilateral phrenic nerve paralysis present for at least 1 year without any evidence of spontaneous recovery.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

This study aims to assess whether the electrical signal of the diaphragm (diaphragm electromyogram) and the ratio of that to tidal volume (amount of air breathed in and out of the lungs) c...
Respiratory dysfunction is the leading cause of death in individuals with spinal cord injuries (SCIs). Nearly one quarter of all SCI cases involve injury to the upper spinal cord segments ...
The purpose of this trial is to determine whether using the diaphragm and a lubricant get can reduce women's risk of acquiring an HIV infection.
The first aim of the study is to obtain from chirurgical micro biopsy myoblast in culture which will differentiate in Diaphragm fiber. Then these fibers will be submitted under mechanical ...
The purpose of this study is to study the safety and contraceptive effectiveness of BufferGel used with a contraceptive diaphragm.
Unilateral elevation of the diaphragm may be due to various causes and requires further elucidation when the aetiology is unknown. Elevation of the diaphragm is often caused by diaphragmatic paralysis...
In the mdx mice model of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), mild endurance exercise training positively affected limb skeletal muscles, whereas few and controversial data exist on the effects of train...
Diaphragm function might be useful to predict nocturnal oxygen desaturation in COPD. Ultrasonography has been widely used for the assessment of the diaphragm. We aimed to investigate the relationship ...
Mutations in the gene for fukutin-related protein represent a subset of muscular dystrophies known as dystroglycanopathies characterized by loss of functionally-glycosylated-alpha-dystroglycan and a w...
Previous investigations have identified impaired trunk and postural stability in individuals with chronic ankle instability (CAI). The diaphragm muscle contributes to trunk and postural stability by m...
A state of unconsciousness as a complication of diabetes mellitus. It occurs in cases of extreme HYPERGLYCEMIA or extreme HYPOGLYCEMIA as a complication of INSULIN therapy.
A congenital abnormality characterized by the elevation of the DIAPHRAGM dome. It is the result of a thinned diaphragmatic muscle and injured PHRENIC NERVE, allowing the intra-abdominal viscera to push the diaphragm upward against the LUNG.
The musculofibrous partition that separates the THORACIC CAVITY from the ABDOMINAL CAVITY. Contraction of the diaphragm increases the volume of the thoracic cavity aiding INHALATION.
Soft tissue formed mainly by the pelvic diaphragm, which is composed of the two levator ani and two coccygeus muscles. The pelvic diaphragm lies just below the pelvic aperture (outlet) and separates the pelvic cavity from the PERINEUM. It extends between the PUBIC BONE anteriorly and the COCCYX posteriorly.
The motor nerve of the diaphragm. The phrenic nerve fibers originate in the cervical spinal column (mostly C4) and travel through the cervical plexus to the diaphragm.
