BRAVO (British Randomized Controlled Trial of AV and VV Optimization) is a multicenter, randomized, crossover, noninferiority trial comparing echocardiographic optimization of atrioventricular (AV) an...
A multicenter, randomized, intra-patient controlled trial.
Non-controlled clinical trial OBJECTIVE.: To assess the efficacy of a simple home spinal traction device on sagittal cranio-cervical posture and related symptoms.
We previously reported the short-term radiographic and functional results of a randomized controlled trial (RCT) comparing computer-assisted and conventionally performed total knee replacement. We cur...
Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency may impair the nutritional status in pancreatic cancer (PC), but the role of pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy (PERT) is not fully evaluated. Therefore, we conduc...
To date, optimal strategies for the management of patients with Cervical Radiculopathy (CR) remain elusive. The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of manual therapy, exercise...
The purpose of the study is to examine the effects of cervical traction with or without the addition of neural mobilization, in patients with cervical radiculopathy
This study evaluates the effectiveness of two treatment interventions in patients with cervical radiculopathy. One group will receive a concurrent approach using traction and neuromobiliza...
Manual therapy reduces symptoms in patients with cervicogenic dizziness. The mobilization and manipulation of upper cervical spine are the most popular treatment in this patients. The Inte...
Sustained natural apophyseal glides (SNAGS), is a form of manual therapy, involved a combination of a sustained facet glide with active motion, followed by overpressure. Natural apophseal ...
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.
The pull on a limb or a part thereof. Skin traction (indirect traction) is applied by using a bandage to pull on the skin and fascia where light traction is required. Skeletal traction (direct traction), however, uses pins or wires inserted through bone and is attached to weights, pulleys, and ropes.

Controlled studies which are planned and carried out by several cooperating institutions to assess certain variables and outcomes in specific patient populations, for example, a multicenter study of congenital anomalies in children.
Classification system for assessing impact injury severity developed and published by the American Association for Automotive Medicine. It is the system of choice for coding single injuries and is the foundation for methods assessing multiple injuries or for assessing cumulative effects of more than one injury. These include Maximum AIS (MAIS), Injury Severity Score (ISS), and Probability of Death Score (PODS).
