Authors' reply re: Randomised controlled trial to estimate reduction in pain after laparoscopic surgery when using a combination therapy of intraperitoneal normal saline and the pulmonary recruitment manoeuvre.
Single-incision laparoscopic (SIL) surgery is expanding, but its benefits, efficacy and safety over conventional laparoscopic (CL) surgery remain unclear. This pilot study examined clinical outcomes a...
To investigate the feasibility of undertaking a definitive randomised controlled trial (RCT).
To compare the costs of a strategy of patient controlled remifentanil versus epidural analgesia for pain relief in labour.
Small observational studies suggest that local glucocorticoid (GC) injection may be effective in the management of the greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS). The objective was to perform the first...
1.1 Aim We wish to validate a structured training program for junior residents to enhance their learning curves in performing laparoscopic appendectomy. 1.2 Hypothesis To introduce a stru...
It is questionable whether elective appendectomy can effectively reduce pain in persistent or recurrent lower abdominal quadrant pain due to chronic appendicitis. A single centre randomis...
This is a double blinded, randomised controlled trial that will compare atropine to placebo for postoperative pain in laparoscopic gynaecological surgery
The purpose of this study is to determine whether metronidazole 10% ointment , applied topically three times a day in and around the anus, on the reduction of pain following haemorrhoidect...
A randomised controlled trial with a study and control group.
Work consisting of a clinical trial involving one or more test treatments, at least one control treatment, specified outcome measures for evaluating the studied intervention, and a bias-free method for assigning patients to the test treatment. The treatment may be drugs, devices, or procedures studied for diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic effectiveness. Control measures include placebos, active medicine, no-treatment, dosage forms and regimens, historical comparisons, etc. When randomization using mathematical techniques, such as the use of a random numbers table, is employed to assign patients to test or control treatments, the trial is characterized as a RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL.
Work consisting of a clinical trial that involves at least one test treatment and one control treatment, concurrent enrollment and follow-up of the test- and control-treated groups, and in which the treatments to be administered are selected by a random process, such as the use of a random-numbers table.
Trial that aims to show a new treatment is no better and no worse than the standard treatment.
Procedures that avoid use of open, invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-controlled manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device.
Work that is the report of a pre-planned, usually controlled, clinical study of the safety and efficacy of diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic drugs, devices, or techniques based on a small number of healthy persons and conducted over the period of about a year in either the United States or a foreign country.
Pain is defined by the International Association for the Study of Pain as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage”. Some illnesses can be excruci...
