Compare the impact of using rapid maxillary expanders on masticatory muscle activities (Masseter and Anterior Temporalis muscles) between the cross-bite side and non-cross-bite sides of the same preadolescent orthodontic patient before the expansion and after one month of the completion treatment period using surface electromyography device.
Intestinal anastomosis plays an important role in various general surgeries, but the complications such as anastomotic leakage,stenosis and hemorrhage cannot been avoided. Although many ways are put up to solve this problem, there are still many imports need to improve. Therefore, the Biodegradable Stenting Anastomoses(BSA), which make intestinal anastomosis easily and less complications, have been produced.The major goal of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of Biodegradab...
This is an open label prospective study of the impact on healthcare utilization of a surface Electromyography (sEMG) based seizure detection system for detecting Generalized Tonic-Clonic (GTC) Seizures.
The purpose of this study is to test whether a novel form of biofeedback training can help individuals regulate their pain more effectively.
The purpose of this study is to verify the applicability Six minutes walk test and Shuttle walk test in assessing functional capacity in patients with Eisenmenger Syndrome. Patients will undergo three functional tests, being the six-minute walk test, shuttle walk test and cardiopulmonary exercise test on a cycle ergometer, associated with evaluation of metabolic and ventilatory variables and cardiac monitoring throughout the test.
Primary Objective: To compare LixiLan to insulin glargine in glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) change from baseline to week 26 in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Secondary Objective: To compare overall efficacy and safety of LixiLan to insulin glargine over 26 weeks in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Speech is a privileged means of communication for humans: its trouble can thus prove being extremely handicapping. Standard speech therapy is limited in some cases by the lack of sensory feedback available to the patient (hearing, surgery, neural damage, etc.). The present study aims at quantify the contribution of the tongue articulatory visual feedback offered by ultrasound echography to speech trouble rehabilitation. Two complementary populations will be studied : 30 adult...
Although High Frequency Oscillatory Ventilation (HFOV) has been used in case of unresponsive to conventional mechanical ventilation both in children and newborns, there is no data on its success and the factors that affect its success in the literature.
Comparison of success rates of novice surgeons to attain proficiency in basic arthroscopy skills after receiving prior training with different simulation systems.
Overweight/obesity is strongly linked to mortality from multiple chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity-related cancers.The successful management of overweight/obesity requires management of nutrition and physical activity over time. For racial/ethnic minority and low-income populations, who face both higher prevalence of obesity and chronic diseases compared to others, interventions promoting behavioral change are a national health priority. ...
The objective of this trial is to determine whether an opioid-free general anesthetic (OFA) technique utilizing ketamine, dexmedetomidine, and lidocaine infusions can help reduce postoperative pain in opiate-dependent chronic pain patients (CPPs) undergoing spine surgery when compared with traditional opioid-containing techniques. It is expected that this OFA regimen will have a measurable reduction on postoperative opioid consumption and pain scores in CPPs.
The objective of this study is to determine if a strategy of indicated compared to liberal oxygen administration in labor decreases the rate of cesarean delivery. The hypothesis is that women who undergo a strategy of indicated compared to liberal oxygen administration in labor will have lower rate of cesarean delivery and fetal acidemia at birth.
The objective is to study the effectiveness of Nalmefene in decreasing alcohol intake in subjects with alcohol use disorder and comorbid BPD.
A Phase I Additional Study of Anlotinib on Tolerance and Pharmacokinetics.To further study the pharmacokinetic characteristics of Anlotinib in the human body, recommend a reasonable regimen for subsequent research.
Combined with the clinical data of FK506 and the database of GO and KEGG, the investigators aim to carry out the bioinformatic analysis and build a muti-locus genetic model, then muti-center assess the predictive accuracy of FK506 metabolic differences.
Depression currently affects close to 2 million Canadians and is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Pharmacological treatments (antidepressant medication) and psychological treatments such as cognitive-behavioural therapy are available for depression, but the majority of those who receive treatment have an unsatisfactory response. On average, the combination of pharmacological and psychological treatment achieves better results than either treatment alone. However, the ...
This study is the first to evaluate the effect of oral supplementation with antioxidants combined with lifestyle modification for severe male factor partners of couples undergoing ICSI.
300 recurrent implantation failure patients will be alternatively assigned to assisted hatching , endometrial scratch , and no treatment ,100 patients in each group
The study was designed to investigate efficacy of suction drains in arthroscopic knee surgery, rather than anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. two groups were randomised, and suction drain was applied to one group, and the other group as the control group without a suction drain.
Dental caries is a multifactorial disease effecting majority of the human population.One of the etiological factor causing dental caries is salivary mutans streptococci. Reducing the levels of this bacteria in the saliva can significantly reduce the incidence of dental caries. A non-invasive intervention, such as the administration of probiotics reduced the salivary mutans streptococci levels.
Background: Venous thromboembolism (VTE), which includes deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), is the third most common cardiovascular disorder after myocardial infarction and stroke. VTE occurs in about 1 person per 1,000 per year, increasing dramatically in patients with cancer to about 25 per 1,000 per year. Among the known risk factors of VTE, cancer is one of the most potent. Patients with cancer have a 7- to 28-fold higher risk for VTE than non-cancer pa...
This study evaluates the effectiveness of treatment osteopathic manipulation in the treatment of subjects with chronic nonspecific low back pain.
This exploratory pilot study was an open-label, crossover, single-center and non-randomized clinical trial designed to compare the effect of the standardly employed doses of allopurinol (400 mg/day) and febuxostat (80 mg/day) on the urinary 2,8-dihydroxyadenine (DHA) excretion in patients with adenine phosphoribosyltransferase (APRT) deficiency.
This study will examine the tolerability and toxicity of topically applied Nepafenac 0.3% vs ketorolac 0.5% among patients undergoing cataract surgery.
Early detection and treatment of onset or worsening of breast cancer-related lymphedema (BCRL) can potentially prevent or postpone the condition to progress into a chronic progressive condition or eliminate the risk of infections in the arm (cellulitis). Self-surveillance for BCRL by routinely measuring own arm circumference could potentially enable early detection of onset or worsening of lymphedema. The aim is to determine whether women who have received surgery for breast ca...
