While autogenous venous graft is preferable in below the knee bypass surgery for patients in critical limb ischemia, some 20% of patients will have no suitable vein for grafting, compelling a resort to artificial graft materials. Retrospective sub-group analyses within published studies comparing heparin-bonded PTFE with crude PFTE graft in below the knee bypass suggest that heparin-bonded graft offers superior long-term patency rates, but this has not been prospectively verified in patients with critical limb ischemia.

Exercise training is recommended to patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, the level of evidence is still low. This randomized controlled trial (RCT) compared two different and self-admi...
Randomized, double blind, parallel groups, sham-controlled trial.
The purpose for this study is to evaluate the patency and outcomes of conventional and heparin anticoagulant bonded arteriovenous grafts in patients with end stage renal disease.
Open repair could be recommended in a first line of treatment to revascularize critical limb ischemia patients or performed in a second line of treatment in case of failure of endovascular...
Heparin is a blood thinner used to prevent blood clots in patients on a form of life-support called ECMO. Heparin can cause bleeding - the most common complication of ECMO. New materials u...

This study compares the dentoalveolar and skeletal effects of bonded spurs associated with build-ups versus conventional bonded spurs in the early treatment of anterior open bite patients....
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.
Works about a study where participants are assigned to a treatment, procedure, or intervention by methods that are not random. Non-randomized clinical trials are sometimes referred to as quasi-experimental clinical trials or non-equivalent control group designs.
Works about randomized clinical trials that compare interventions in clinical settings and which look at a range of effectiveness outcomes and impacts.
Strategy for the analysis of RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIALS AS TOPIC that compares patients in the groups to which they were originally randomly assigned.
