This study is an observatory single center study investigating heart rate variability during on and off states of the spinal cord stimulator, in patients with failed back surgery syndrome.
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...
Failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS) is the term of persistent back and/or leg pain after surgery for lumbar disk herniation (LDH). Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (r-TMS) is a...
To determine the effect of various methods of perioperative analgesia on the rate of failed back surgery syndrome in patients operated on for spinal stenosis.
Post-surgical lumbar spine syndrome is the result of failed or unsuccessful back surgery. It is defined as failure to relieve pain and disability in the lower back and extremities following surgery. T...
Post-laminectomy syndrome (PLS) or failed back surgery syndrome is a condition characterized by persistent pain following a back surgery. Degenerative processes may result in foraminal stenosis develo...
Building on the recent finding that chronic pain patients with impaired functioning of the descending nociceptive inhibitory system (DNIS) present lower resting heart rate variability (HRV), this stud...
We evaluated 18 DiGeorge syndrome (DGS) patients and aimed to investigate the immunological changes in this population. DGS patients with low naive CD4 T and CD8 T cells were defined as high risk (HR)...
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.
Acne Dermatology Eczema Psoriasis Wound Care Dermatology is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of skin disorders (Oxford Medical Dictionary). As well as studying how the skin works, dermatology covers...
Spinal Cord Disorders
The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that runs down the middle of the back which carry signals back and forth between the body and brain. It is protected by vertebrae, which are the bone disks that make up the spine. An accident that damages the verte...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
