The aim of this study is to assess the benefits from the AAISafeR/SafeR algorithm of Symphony 2550 or REPLY DR in a wide range of pacemaker patients. The expected benefits will be a result of the reduction of the percentage of ventricular pacing. It contributes to the longevity of the cardiac pacemaker and has an effect on the incidence of sustained (or persistent) Atrial Fibrillation and Heart Failure. These clinical benefits are a result of spontaneous ventricular act...
After treatment, women want to regain a 'normal' lifestyle while some factors interfere as chronic fatigue. In the absence of anemia, fatigue is often a consequence of physical deconditioning . Pinto and colleagues, for a walking level from 55 to 65% HRmax, estimated a reduction of fatigue in post treatment. Supervised exercise show greater adherence to short-term practice at home. However, there are a growing number of studies suggesting a practice at home, the most activity b...
The objective of this study is to examine the impact of incentivizing authors of RCTs that are eligible for a systematic review and meta-analysis, versus usual contact strategies to obtain original IPD
Nodal staging is a key-step in pre-treatment assessment of prostate cancer. In patients with a low probability of nodal metastasis, bilateral pelvic lymphadenectomy is controversial. The large majority of them (> 80%) are free of nodal disease in obturator and external iliac stations. On the other hand, skip metastases located outside the standard lymphadenectomy may be missed, particularly in more proximal nodal stations (i.e. common iliac nodes and pre-sacral nodes). I...
This study is collecting data on quality of life, (care)needs and socio-economic factors in colorectal (ex-)cancer patients via a written questionnaire completed by the patient him/herself. The collected data will be linked with the patient- and tumour characteristics available in the database of the Belgian Cancer Registry and with the facturation data supplying information about diagnostic techniques and performed treatments (available via the insurance companies). Bas...
In patients presenting with Type A and Type B1, B2 thoracolumbar fractures, there is a lack of evidence demonstrating similar outcomes between patients treated with percutaneous pedicle screws and those treated openly. It has been demonstrated that percutaneous pedicle screw fixation has fared well for patients in the short term; however, it is unclear whether the outcomes are equivalent or inferior/superior compared to open treatment. The authors seek to establish a high-leve...
A pharmacist follow-up procedure is under development. Patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) is being followed up by a pharmacist for one year with three meetings; at discharge from hospital, after three months and after one year. The evaluation is basically based on quantitative measures as achievement of therapeutic goals, number of drug related problems detected, hospitalisations etc. However, the patients' own experience with the follow-up procedure cannot be evaluated...
By using gene-expression profiling, Van't Veer and colleagues developed a 70-gene prognosis profile, MammaPrint, to identify breast cancer patients who are at low risk of developing distant metastases and therefore might safely be spared chemotherapy. The aim of this study is to evaluate the prognostic value of the 70-gene Mammaprint profile in Japanese women with node-negative breast cancer.
No consensus exists among biomedical journals on the subject of blinding during the peer review process. Some journals attempt to remove all identifiers of authorship from potential manuscripts before delivering to referees for peer review while others prefer to leave the authorship transparent. Although peer review remains the gold standard for manuscript evaluation, the lack of a standardized blinding process between editorial offices may be a source of publication bias and m...
Based on our clinical experience in patients with chronic disease (Hui, Hui, and Johnston, 2006; Hays et al 2005), a review of the literature (Johnston, Xiao and Hui 2007), and inspired by Vickers and colleagues (PMID: 15117996), we carry out a pilot study that investigates if acupuncture combined with patient education will relieve fatigue in patients who have completed primary treatment for breast cancer.
Caffeine intake is reported by many authors to enhance the perception of tinnitus. The aim of this study is to determine the effects of 1 month caffeine intake reduction in the scores of validated questionnaire Tinnitus Handicap Inventory(THI) and in a visual-analog scale (VAS)
The authors study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of Hyoscine-N-butylbromide on pain perception of the patients during and after Hysterosalpingography procedure. The investigators did a double-blind, randomized placebo-controlled trial
Erythema Toxicum Neonatorum (ETN) is a common skin finding that affects healthy full-term babies. Several authors have commented on the possible relationship between ETN and the development of atopic conditions, such as atopic dermatitis or respiratory disease later in life. There is a paucity of research addressing this issue.
The aim of this study is to see if plant sterols are effective at lowering blood cholesterol levels in Chinese people. The study will be done with Chinese colleagues based at Peking University in Beijing with whom our Institute has a well-established collaboration. The study will be randomised, placebo-controlled and double-blind. The total study period for participants will be an average of seven weeks comprised of a two-week placebo run-in period and a five-week follow-up ...
Investigators have started an awake spinal anesthesia program in conjunction with pediatric surgical colleagues. Patients are offered the option of awake spinal anesthesia instead of general anesthesia for appropriate surgical procedures. Previous studies have demonstrated a lack of significant hemodynamic changes in neonates and infants following spinal anesthesia; however, there are limited data regarding its impact on tissue oxygenation. The goal of the current study is to a...
Infertile couples who come for evaluation and treatment in IVF unit could be under psychological stress. Many authors in the past suggested that stress itself is one of the factors that directly influence fecundability rate. In couples treated in IVF unit, the investigators aim to measure chronic stress by measuring hair cortisol level (as a marker for chronic cortisol release) and by filling different questionnaires.
There are conflicting results in earlier studies concerning the safety and efficacy of epidural oxycodone. In a study by Bäcklund and colleagues, epidural oxycodone was as effective as intravenous oxycodone, so they did not recommend epidural use of oxycodone. In another study, Yanagidate and Dohi reported that oxycodone was as effective in pain treatment with double dose compared to epidural morphine. In our previous study, epidural oxycodone provided safe and effective pain ...
The purpose of this study is to analyze the findings of 30 surgeons and 30 nuclear radiologists of 61 individual thyroid scans. The goal is to determine if surgeons are more prone to making a definitive diagnosis based on a given scan than a nuclear radiologist. Accuracy of localization of the two groups will be analyzed. A secure website has been designed to which the physician will be able to login and view and rate the quality of each image and make a localizing diagnosis....
Retrospective observational study to determine the efficacy of remifentanil during the delivery. Authors will search the data in period between 2010 and 2014 in cohort of 100 parturients and obtain data of analgesic efficacy (VAS score after remifentanil analgesia induction) and parturients satisfaction with the method.
The present study aims to examine the effects of a 4 month, family focused therapy (FFT) intervention on the 1 year course of mood symptoms in BD I/II offspring. The study will also examine the level of expressed emotion (EE) among families and how this impacts on FFT treatment outcomes. This study seeks to replicate a previous study by Miklowitz, Schneck, Singh, Taylor, George and colleagues (2013), which demonstrated the efficacy of FFT among BD offspring. Importantly, the pr...
The aim of the study is to compare the effect of 3 different skin temperature placement probe in the case room on the admission temperature to the NICU in preterm infants. The authors aim to evaluate which placement results in more preterm in the acceptable range (36.5-37 °C).
The authors employ a questionary approach to understanding the relational among patients' perceptions of inpatient, outpatient and emergency room service and their overall perceptions of service quality, satisfaction with hospital.The questionary was applied in total 300 patients (100 inpatients, 100 outpatients and 100 emergency patients).
Pancreaticobiliary reflux has been found in patients with cholelithiasis and gallbladder cancer associated with normal pancreaticobiliary union. However, the presence of pancreaticobiliary reflux has not been studied in patients without gallstones (healthy gallbladders). The authors believe that pancreaticobiliary reflux might be a normal phenomenon in patients with and without gallstones, although in patients with cholelithiasis it might constitute a pathological condit...
In the last decade, several authors proposed ultrasound measurement of Bladder wall thickness (BWT) for the screening of the voiding dysfunction and of the detrusor overactivity (DO). The aims of the investigator prospective study were: - to compare the ultrasonographic measurement of BWT in women with DO vs women with other urodynamic diagnosis in a very large population. - to verify whether the BWT in women with DO can be different in the clinically or ...
The intraperitoneal repair has been proven safe for the repair of incisional hernia and is accepted, together with the subfascial or retromuscular repair as the "gold-standard" for the repair of incisional hernia. However no studies have convincingly proven that this approach is better than the on-lay repair. The authors believe that the intraperitoneal repair performs better than the on-lay repair for incisional hernia.
