2014-08-27 03:12:36 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The objective of this clinical trial is to evaluate the impact and symptomatic efficacy of platelets rich plasma (PRP \ PRGF) in the treatment of partial tears of supraspinatus tendon of rotator cuff.

Speed of tendon healing of partial thickness tear of the supraspinatus tendon influenced by local injection of platelets rich plasma

Description

Primary endpoint: evaluate functional changes after treatment with local infection with platelets rich plasma. This functional changes will be evaluate with Constant Score (questionnaire of shoulder function) and clinical examination.

Secondary endpoint: evaluate the healing effect of the platelets rich plasma locally injected on partial tear of SSP tendon. These morphologic changes will be evaluated by echography

Selection and withdrawal of subjects 40 patients with partial tear of supraspinatus tendon diagnosed by echography. INCLUSION CRITERIA Male or female patients aged between 18 and 60 Patients suffering from partial tear of supraspinatus tendon on echography. Patients who are willing to participate in the trial, to come to all scheduled visits and to sign the informed consent forms.

EXCLUSION CRITERIA Patients receiving other methods of treatment to this area, who had concomitant other injury of the Rotator Cuff tendons.

Non cooperative patient with the basic rehab program.

Trial design

1st visit: Enrollment of patient

1. The patient will be given a full verbal and written explanation regarding the trial and treatment. The patient will sign the informed consent form and will be given a serial number.

2. The screening forms will be completed.

3. Demographic data: date of birth, sex, age and complete medical history, height and previous treatments will be recorded.

4. Fill out questionnaire of shoulder function. Constant score. SST ( Simple shoulder test)

5. Clinical examination will be performed. The results will be recorded in the CRF.

6. Radiology studies: RX Shoulder AP+LAT+ SSP OUTLET VIEW (as required in normal examination of RC injury)

7. Each patient will receive a physiotherapy treatment order according to the protocol of each social work

Randomized separation of the patients in two groups: Control group and the trail group. Patients and medical staff do not know to which group they belong. Double blind trial. (Outside the physician in charge of preparing the blood and the principal investigator)

2nd visit: autologous platelet-rich plasma

1. Blood samples (4 test tubes) will be extracted from both groups. The blood of the trial group will be centrifuged and the platelet fraction extracted.

2. The enriched plasma fraction will be then injected to the trial group in sterile conditions under ultrasound control. The control group will receive NACL0.9% solution under the same conditions.

3rd visit: 1sr trimester control

1. Fill out questionnaire of shoulder function. Constant score. SST ( Simple shoulder test)

2. Clinical examination will be performed. . Constant score The results will be recorded in the CRF

3. Ultrasound shoulder examination

4rd visit: 2nd trimester control

1. Fill out questionnaire of shoulder function. Constant score. SST (simple shoulder test)

2. Clinical examination will be performed. . Constant score The results will be recorded in the CRF

3. Ultrasound shoulder examination

5th visit: 3rd trimester control

1. Fill out questionnaire of shoulder function. Constant score. STT ( simple shoulder test)

2. Clinical examination will be performed. . Constant score The results will be recorded in the CRF

3. Ultrasound shoulder examination

6th visit: 4th trimester control

1. Fill out questionnaire of shoulder function. Constant score. SST ( simple shoulder test)

2. Clinical examination will be performed. . Constant score The results will be recorded in the CRF

3. Ultrasound shoulder examination

4. End of trial

After one year if treatment if PRGF is proved to be significantly effective on the result of the trail the medical staff is committed to provide treatment, with rich plasma to control patients at no cost.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The tear-forming and tear-conducting system which includes the lacrimal glands, eyelid margins, conjunctival sac, and the tear drainage system.

A disorder characterized by recurrent focal onset seizures which have sensory (i.e., olfactory, visual, tactile, gustatory, or auditory) manifestations. Partial seizures that feature alterations of consciousness are referred to as complex partial seizures (EPILEPSY, COMPLEX PARTIAL).

Conditions characterized by recurrent paroxysmal neuronal discharges which arise from a focal region of the brain. Partial seizures are divided into simple and complex, depending on whether consciousness is unaltered (simple partial seizure) or disturbed (complex partial seizure). Both types may feature a wide variety of motor, sensory, and autonomic symptoms. Partial seizures may be classified by associated clinical features or anatomic location of the seizure focus. A secondary generalized seizure refers to a partial seizure that spreads to involve the brain diffusely. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp317)

A partial denture constructed before the teeth it replaces are removed. It is then inserted immediately after the removal of the natural teeth for functional and cosmetic reasons during the healing process. It is to be replaced later by the fitted partial denture.

A disorder characterized by recurrent partial seizures marked by impairment of cognition. During the seizure the individual may experience a wide variety of psychic phenomenon including formed hallucinations, illusions, deja vu, intense emotional feelings, confusion, and spatial disorientation. Focal motor activity, sensory alterations and AUTOMATISM may also occur. Complex partial seizures often originate from foci in one or both temporal lobes. The etiology may be idiopathic (cryptogenic partial complex epilepsy) or occur as a secondary manifestation of a focal cortical lesion (symptomatic partial complex epilepsy). (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp317-8)
