Theta Burst Stimulation for Schizophrenia

Purpose and objective Schizophrenia is a chronic debilitating illness with cognitive deficits that cause serious impairment in psychosocial recovery and with few treatments to remediate these deficits. One area that holds great promise for the development of novel, effective therapies is noninvasive brain stimulation. The investigators have used one form of brain stimulation, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), for some time to modulate and enhance cognitive function in th...


Protective Mechanical VENTilation Strategy in Patients Undergoing CARDiac Surgery

Heart surgery is a life-saving intervention for hundreds of thousands of patients each year worldwide. Advances in technology and medical expertise have improved outcomes for these patients over the years. However, despite such advances, approximately 30% of patients develop lung complications (also called "pulmonary complications") after heart surgery, which result in prolonged hospital stay, increased mortality and healthcare costs. During and immediately after heart surgery...

Effects of Intraoperative, Goal-directed Crystalloid vs. Colloid Fluid Resuscitation on Free Flaps

Maintaining satisfactory tissue perfusion is an essential of success during reconstructive free flap surgery following malign oral cavity tumours. Intra- and postoperative goal-directed fluid therapy is an appropriate tool for that. Continuous cardiac output monitoring based fluid loading (complemented with vasopressor and/or inotropes if necessary) might be superior to conventional, central venous and arterial pressure monitoring in terms of morbidity, complications, optimal f...

Effect of Weight Loss and CPAP on OSA and Metabolic Profile Stratified by Craniofacial Phenotype

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common form of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB). Weight reduction has always been advocated in patients with OSA who are overweight and may lead to improvement in the severity of OSA. Previous study reported a randomized controlled trial of dietician-led lifestyle modification program (LMP) in 104 patients and found that LMP group had significantly more weight loss and reduced OSA severity, and the response was sustained after 8 months. ...

Improving Decisions About CPR

Objective The primary objective is to evaluate the efficacy of a multi-faceted, clinical decision support intervention aimed at improving the quality of decisions about Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) for seriously ill, elderly patients in hospital. The hypothesis is that fewer patients in the intervention group will have a documented order for CPR and they will have greater satisfaction with decision making about CPR than patients in the control group.

Recovery of Impairments Early After Stroke

Upper limb recovery after stroke is highly predictable early after stroke. Nijland et al. showed that based on two simple clinical bedside tests - 'Shoulder Abduction' and 'Finger Extension' (the so called 'SAFE model' [Stinear et al., 2012]) - measured within the first 72 hours after stroke, ~87% of the patients could be correctly classified as either regaining or not regaining some dexterity (recoverers or nonrecoverers, respectively) (Nijland et al., 2010). This kind of info...

Rehabilitation in Safety-net Settings for Patients With COPD

This study will examine COPD Wellness, a 10-week low-intensity pulmonary rehabilitation program consisting of group and home exercise, education, and social support can improve symptoms and increase physical activity in participants with COPD who receive care within a 'safety-net' healthcare system (e.g. County Hospital). Half of the participants will also receive an adherence strategy targeted at addressing unmet social needs, while the other half will undergo the intervention...

Efficacy of a Plaque Disclosing Toothpaste on Home Oral Hygiene Procedures

Plaque accumulation on tooth and gingival surfaces is a causative factor for oral diseases such as demineralization, dental caries, gingivitis, and periodontitis. Tooth brushing and flossing have been the cornerstone of oral hygiene and health. However, the high incidence and prevalence of gum problems in both the developed and developing world show these mechanical routines are not enough. Furthermore, many patients find it difficult to comply with this daily regime of brushi...

MCS110 Combined With Neoadjuvant Doxorubicin, Cyclophosphamide, and Weekly Paclitaxel in Patients With Hormone-Receptor Positive and HER2- Breast Cancer

In patients with locally advanced hormone receptor positive (HR+)/HER2- breast cancer, neoadjuvant chemotherapy produces a pathologic complete response rate (pCR) of only 9-15%, and late recurrences often occur despite neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Therefore, there is an unmet clinical need to improve the outcomes of these patients. Tumor-associated macrophages (TAM) infiltration leads to poor outcomes in breast cancer patients by promoting angiogenesis, activating epithelial-mesen...

Objective: To evaluate the efficacy of preoperative liver stiffness measurement(LSM) by FibroScan in predicting the progress of liver fibrosis and prognosis after transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Background: Progress of liver fribrosis and liver failure and related poor prognosis after TACE which are not completely predictable by current method including Child-Pugh Classification. LSM is used to calculate the degree of liver fi...

Stereotactic Radiotherapy of the Resection Cavity of Brain Metastases vs. Post-operative Whole-brain Radiotherapy

In advanced cancer disease brain metastases are common, difficult to treat, and are associated with a poor prognosis. As new local and systemic therapies are eventually resulting in improved survival and quality of life for patients with brain metastases, negative neurocognitive effects of radiation therapy are becoming increasingly important as well as good loco-regional disease control of brain metastases. Concerning treatment, brain metastases remain a major clinical proble...

Real-Time Decision Support for Improving Intraoperative Cerebral Perfusion Pressure

Across broad surgical populations, cerebral hypoperfusion is associated with increased mortality, stroke, brain cellular injury, and poor functional outcomes. Based on available evidence, The Brain Trauma Foundation recommends that cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) be maintained greater than 60 mmHg in high-risk settings to minimize risk of cerebral ischemia. Though several lines of investigation have focused on optimal cerebrovascular management in the intensive care unit and ...

Ocular Screening in Children and Young Adults at Risk for Increased Intracranial Pressure

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the vision and posterior segment of eyes in children and young adults less than 22 years of age with risk, suspicion, or past medical history significant for elevated intracranial pressure (ICP). Patients will have visual acuity and color vision tested. Assessment of the posterior segment will involve using a non-invasive (non-contact) imaging technique (i.e. a portable fundus camera in clinic and hospital settings).
