The current study aimed to evaluate the effectivity ...

Screw Lengths in Radius Volar Plates

Background Fractures of the distal radius are among the most common. Major complications, including irritation and rupture of the extensor tendons, may occur if epiphyseal screws of inappropriate length are used. Questions/Purposes The main objective of the present study was to determine whether the optimal epiphyseal screw length can be determined by reference to the diaphyseal screw length. Methods Forty CT scans were semi-automatically segmented. A 3D model of the vo...

Evaluation of the Position of Promontofixation Prostheses in Perineal Ultrasound

Indirect promontofixation with prostheses is the standard surgical technique for the reference of uterine prolapse. There is no validated examination to control the position of the prostheses postoperatively. These prostheses are echogenic and perineal ultrasound could be a means of postoperative monitoring. There is no data in the literature on the relationship between prosthesis position and postoperative symptoms

An Audit Study on Management of Neonates With Neonatal Sepsis Admitted to Asyut University Children Hospital

The present study aims to evaluate management of neonates with neonatal sepsis admitted to the Neonatology Unit, Assiut University Children Hospital according to the guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics, 2018,[25] searching for defects, obstacles, or needs to improve the management of such cases. We consider that this critical appraisal of our own performance, is a crucial step before any further corrections or developments of that performance could take place.

Serum Ceftazidime Concentrations in Hemodialysis Patients

There is evidence that the current dosing recommendations of ceftazidime in hemodialysis patients may not reach the critical pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamics thresholds associated with maximal efficacy. The primary objective is to assess whether the standard doses of ceftazidime (1 or 2 g) administered at the end of the dialysis session (intermittent dialysis) allow to obtain a trough level equal or superior to 8 mg/L if the causative organism is not identified or 1 x th...

Validation of a Test System to Develop New Medications for Alcoholism (TEMACA)

Validation of a Test System to develop new medications for alcoholism (TEMA) The 'TEMA', a progressive-work alcohol self-administration paradigm, can be validated by reproducing the effect of Acamprosate and prove the effect of Calcium to reduce motivation to work for alcohol after 14 - 19 days of treatment during a period of 15 - 20 days of alcohol abstinence in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled three-arm parallel-group design.

Josef Ressel Centre Perinatal Programming

Background: The worldwide prevalence of obesity has tripled since the 1980s. Metabolic imprinting through early childhood nutrition seems to play an important role in the aetiology of obesity. Overweight at age two and later in life is associated with excessive weight gain as early as three months of age. Breastfeeding in the first year of life appears to be a protective measure against risks for obesity development. Objective: of the "Josef Ressel Centre for Early Life Metabo...

Evaluation of Nutritional Practices in the Critical Care

Background: The adequacy of the artificial Nutritional Support (NS) in the critical care patient has implications in morbidity and prognosis. Clinical practice guidelines (CPG) are an important tool for healthcare professionals in their daily practice and a method of consultation for the correct treatment of patients. Also, the evidence remains low and there are important controversies regarding the NS in the critical care patient. Hypothesis: The NS generates great controvers...

Effect of IONM on Efficacy and Safety Using Sugammadex in Thyroid Surgery

Thyroidectomy is a frequently performed surgeon by the head and neck and endocrine surgeons. In recent years, surgical techniques and technological developments have resulted in a significant reduction in complication rates. Despite these advances, there is still a great deal of anxiety about the sound problems that can be experienced in patients after surgery. In the past years,the investigators have tried to prevent recurrent nerve paralysis by using intraoperative nerve moni...

An Investigational Study to Evaluate Experimental Medication BMS-986224 in Renally Impaired Participants

The purpose of this study is to investigate the experimental medication BMS-986224 in participants with varying levels of renal function.

Dose Escalation of RMC-4630 Monotherapy in Relapsed/Refractory Solid Tumors

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetic (PK), and pharmacodynamic (PD) profiles of escalating doses of RMC-4630 monotherapy in adult participants with relapsed/refractory solid tumors and to identify the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D).

An Investigational Study to Evaluate the Effects of Experimental Medication BMS-986256 in Healthy Participants

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of the experimental medication BMS-986256 in healthy participants.

Anodal tDCS Over the Contralesional Hemisphere With Robotic Arm Training in Subacute Stroke Patients With Severe Upper Limb Hemiparesis

Upper limb recovery is not predicted by the initial severity of paralysis and the parameters reflecting the integrity of the corticospinal tract (e.g. motor evoked potential, fractional anisotropy in diffusion tensor imaging). Although the inhibition of the contralesional hemisphere is known to be beneficial for the upper limb recovery after stroke in previous studies, this is not proven in the severely paralyzed upper limb. And the studies using the noninvasive stimulation in ...

Study to Evaluate the Efficacy of FOLFOX + Panitumumab Followed by FOLFIRI + Bevacizumab (Sequence 1) Versus FOLFOX + Bevacizumab Followed by FOLFIRI + Panitumumab (Sequence 2) in Untreated Patients With Wild-type RAS Metastatic, Primary Left-sided, Unres

The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of FOLFOX + panitumumab followed by FOLFIRI + bevacizumab (Sequence 1) versus FOLFOX + bevacizumab followed by FOLFIRI + panitumumab (Sequence 2) in untreated patients with wild-type RAS metastatic, primary left-sided, unresectable colorectal cancer

Bladder Catheters During Ablation Procedures

Inserting a Bladder catheter during catheter ablation is standard practice at most Institutions. Unfortunately, bladder catheters are associated with adverse outcomes, including catheter associated cystitis, hematuria, dysuria, and urethral damage. The investigator proposes a prospective, randomized clinical trial comparing group A that will receive a catheter during the ablation procedure and group B that will not receive the procedure. The Investigator hypothesizes the group...

Effect of the Incoportation of Copper and Zinc Nanoparticles Into Dental Adhesives

The hypothesis is that Addition of copper or zinc nanoparticles to a dental adhesive confers antimicrobial and enzymatic degradation-resistant properties, retaining its adhesion mechanical properties and biocompatibility. To corroborate this hypothesis two groups of a dental adhesive doped with copper or zinc nanoparticles should be develop with a respective structural characterization by SEM-EDX, AFM and FTIR. This should be followed by a test of the antimicrobial activity of ...
