This study is an interventional, observatory single center trial investigating the functional connectivity of the electrical brain activity in high density spinal cord stimulation in faile...
This is a prospective study in which the investigators will describe individual goals of patients with Failed Back Surgery Syndrome, who will be treated with spinal cord stimulation.
This US study will assess hemophilia A patient characteristics, health history and reasons for switching or not switching from both patient/caregiver and physician perspectives. For this p...
Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) has been used for over 40 years to treat neuropathic pain. Various clinical studies have shown a beneficial effect of SCS on pain in patients with Failed Back...
To assess persistence of Inflectra in patients with Rheumatoid Disease (Rheumatoid arthritis [RA], ankylosing spondylitis [AS], and psoriatic arthritis [PsA]) who are naive to biologics or...
Co-morbid depression has been associated with poor outcomes following spine surgery and worsening of low back pain symptoms leading to failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS). Given the increasing focus o...
We experimentally demonstrate simultaneous Tm passive Q-switched (PQS) and Ho gain-switched laser operations at 1888.8 and 2021.2 nm, respectively, in a single-cavity all-fiber laser. The PQS operati...
Failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS) is a challenging condition that lacks a curative treatment. In selected patients, spinal cord stimulation (SCS) has provided a satisfactory outcome.
Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) has proven to be a cost-effective treatment for failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS). However, the effect on patients' working capability remains unclear.
Surgical lumbar discectomy is a commonly-performed routine spinal procedure that is usually undertaken to alleviate lumbar radicular symptoms caused by a herniated intervertebral disc. Surgical lumbar...
A condition of persistent pain and discomfort in the BACK and the LEG following lumbar surgery, often seen in patients enrolled in pain centers.
Gas lasers with excited dimers (i.e., excimers) as the active medium. The most commonly used are rare gas monohalides (e.g., argon fluoride, xenon chloride). Their principal emission wavelengths are in the ultraviolet range and depend on the monohalide used (e.g., 193 nm for ArF, 308 nm for Xe Cl). These lasers are operated in pulsed and Q-switched modes and used in photoablative decomposition involving actual removal of tissue. (UMDNS, 2005)
Studies comparing two or more treatments or interventions in which the subjects or patients, upon completion of the course of one treatment, are switched to another. In the case of two treatments, A and B, half the subjects are randomly allocated to receive these in the order A, B and half to receive them in the order B, A. A criticism of this design is that effects of the first treatment may carry over into the period when the second is given. (Last, A Dictionary of Epidemiology, 2d ed)
A repeat operation for the same condition in the same patient due to disease progression or recurrence, or as followup to failed previous surgery.
A therapeutic approach, involving chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery, after initial regimens have failed to lead to improvement in a patient's condition. Salvage therapy is most often used for neoplastic diseases.
