The approved study involves investigation of the ability to predict outcomes in the implanted ear alone and in the best-aided binaural listening conditions, examining a number of measured factors both pre-, peri- and post-operatively. The study incorporates a range of function...

Veterans Affairs Lung Cancer Or Stereotactic Radiotherapy

Patients with stage I non-small cell lung cancer have been historically treated with surgery whenever they are fit for an operation. However, an alternative treatment known as stereotactic radiotherapy now appears to offer an equally effective alternative. Doctors believe both are good treatments and are therefore conducting this study to determine if one may be possibly better than the other.

Effectiveness of Single Paravertebral Blockade Injection for Herniorrhaphy in Children

Paravertebral block (PVB) might be a technique of choice for hernia surgery due to its unilateral segmental anesthesia of the operative site, good muscle relaxation and prolonged postoperative analgesia. Despite PVB effectiveness, a continuing search for a reliable, timely and effective technique generates the investigation of a single PVB injection for children undergoing unilateral inguinal hernia repair. Two theoretical concepts were behind this investigation. First, possibl...

Multimodal Analgesia Based on Transversus Abdominis Plane Block Combined With κ Receptor Agonist and NSAID(Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drug ) Following Open Gastrointestinal Surgery in Elderly Patients

Gastrointestinal surgeries are common surgeries performed in elderly patients throughout the world. Although there is an increasing trend towards laparoscopic surgeries, open procedures continue to remain common therapeutic modalities especially in the developing countries. Pain is reported more commonly in patients undergoing open procedures than laparoscopic procedures. Postoperative pain and tissue injury associated with surgery initiated a systemic stress response which has...

[Trial of device that is not approved or cleared by the U.S. FDA]

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS) Dual Imaging

Both intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) are standardly used and have been extensively studied separately to guide percutaneous coronary intervention and improve long-term outcomes. In this study, the investigators aim to directly compare high-definition IVUS images to OCT in the same patients to determine the differences between each modality as they relate to imaging coronary pathology, with the goal of determining which modality is most app...

Fusarium Keratitits in Spain 2012 to 2014

The aim of this study was to describe the clinical-epidemiological characteristics of a series of cases of fungal keratitis associated with Fusarium spp., In Spain during the years 2012 to 2014.

Anterior Transversalis Fascia Approach Versus Preperitoneal Space Approach for Inguinal Hernia Repair in Residents

To investigate the advantages and disadvantages of the anterior transversalis fascia approach versus the preperitoneal approach for inguinal hernia repair in residents from northern China regarding common postoperative complications (including acute and chronic pain, wound infection, rates of wound infection, hematoma, seroma, and hernia recurrence) and severe postoperative complications.

Effect of Proton Pump Inhibitor and Mosapride on Acid Pocket in Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

The gastric acid pocket is believed to be the reservoir from which acid reflux events originate. The risk for acidic reflux is mainly determined by the position of the gastric acid pocket. Little is known about how changes in position and size of the acid pocket contribute to the therapeutic effect of proton pump inhibitors(PPI) plus mosapride in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease. Investigators will conduct a prospective randomized, single blind and placebo-controll...

Safety Margin Assessment After RFA Using the Registration of Pre-ablation MRI and Post-ablation CT

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been widely used for small liver lesion detection and characterization. In patients who undergo RFA, MRI is often performed before RFA, whereas immediate technical success is usually assessed by CT. Conventional visual assessment of two modalities may be more challenging than being anticipated, because acquisition position, respiration, and spatial resolution differ between the two. Therefore, the study purpose is to evaluate the results of ...
