After a stroke, many people develop contracture of the muscles in their affected wrist and hand which leads to a permanently clenched, painful hand. A contracture is often treated by therapists who use hand splinting to prevent it occurring or slow down its progression. Despite their wide use, there has not been research completed to investigate whether or not splinting prevents contracture in people following stroke. In fact, this project will be the first of its kind in the w...
This study is looking at new ways to stretch knee contractures in children with cerebral palsy using a specially designed splint.
Two standards of care exist with regards to posterior splinting post-operatively. The proponents of splinting feel the additional immobilization decreases the stress on the soft tissue, subsequently preventing or limiting pain while improving early range of motion (ROM). The opposing belief is that the splinting is without therapeutic benefit and that early mobilization is beneficial. With regards to both practices, the surgeon's practice is anecdotally based on past experien...
The objective of this study is to compare functional splinting time effect versus the suggested splinting time of (IADT) effect on tooth mobility and possible healing outcomes for surgically extruded permanent anterior teeth with crown root fracture.
Carpometacarpal Thumb Arthritis is a disease caused by different factors and attacks mainly woman older than 50 years. The signs and symptoms consist in pain, swelling, joint instability, deformity and loss of motion. Some evidence has shown that splinting of the thumb may be of benefit. There are two methods of splinting: The first is Standard Neoprene wrap-on thumb support (in which the finger is kept in the same position with in a standard Neoprene thumb splint). The se...
This study is attempting to understand whether or not splinting after a fingertip injury improves recovery.
Upper limb spasticity is currently mainly managed with local toxin treatments. Recent studies suggested combining botulinum toxin injections with splinting to optimise rehabilitation in spastic patients. However, one study focused exclusively on lower limb spasticity, the second on elbow flexor hypertonia, and the last on wrist and finger spasticity in children. A study was performed in adult patients with upper limb spasticity treated with botulinum toxin injections use...
The African-American Antiplatelet Stroke Prevention Study is designed to prevent recurrent strokes by administration of aspirin or ticlopidine. The study also provides community information on reducing risk of stroke and recognizing the symptoms of stroke. The study involves more than 50 participating hospitals located throughout the United States. Study medication is provided free of charge, and a transportation stipend is available for those in need.
There is no consensus regarding the need to immobilize the elbow in immediate immobilization of closed distal radius fractures post-reduction. Decreased functionality of the upper extremity is a notable morbidity associated with below-elbow splinting of distal radius fractures post-reduction. Few studies have provided evidence comparing sugar tong splinting versus short-arm casting as methods of immediate post-reduction immobilization. The study will randomize patients with clo...
Our aim is to investigate the effects of our soft robotic socks in providing assisted ankle dorsiflexion-plantarflexion and promoting venous blood flow in stroke patients. Specifically, we intend to 1) observe the development of joint contracture in terms of the range of motion of the ankle joint given the use of our device 2) monitor the presence of blood clots in the deep veins using compression Duplex ultrasonography given the use of our sock device. We hypothesize th...
Graft versus host disease (GVHD) is a common complication of allogeneic stem cell transplant.Chronic GVHD is characterized by skin thickening and tightening. Advanced sclerosis can lead to reduced range of motion and incapacitating joint contractures. Once present, there are few therapeutic options. We will treat sclerosis and limb contractures with an ablative fractional laser, a device FDA-approved for scar treatment. This approach has successfully treated contracturesdue to ...
Upper extremity splints are one of the nonpharmacologic treatments used to treat hypertonicity after stroke. The purpose of splinting is to support, to position, to immobilize, to prevent contracture and deformities, to reduce spasticity and to enhance function. Dynamic lycra splints have been found to improve spasticity, posture, and fluency of upper extremity movements in computerized analysis systems due to the effects of neutral warmth, circumferential pressure and by creat...
This is a randomized follow-up study after discharge from a stroke unit after a first stroke. The patients are randomized either to follow-up at a special out-patient stroke unit or with their general practitioners. The hypothesis is that follow-up with specialists is superior to follow-up with general practitioners. Endpoints are mortality, recurrent stroke and handicap measured with different scales.
Depression is one of the important psychiatric sequelae after stroke. The prevalence of post stroke depression (PSD) is approximately 20-40%. Depression comorbid with stroke has been found to be associated with increased disability, cognitive function decline, poorer rehabilitation outcome and higher mortality rate.We are going to conduct a trial of prevention of psot stroke depression by prescribing milnacipran in advance.
The Purpose of this study is to examine the effect of using the Carpal Tunnel Dynasplint® System on patients diagnosed with CTS in a randomized, controlled, cross-over study.
The rapid diagnosis and treatment of acute ischemic stroke are critical in the reduction of morbidity, disability and stroke associated mortality Under-education about stroke may prevent people from recognizing symptoms early enough to seek immediate care. The studies reported on stroke patients managed in stroke center have shown that 39-42% of patients could not name any symptoms of stroke and 36% to 43% no risk factor of stroke. The stroke patients are therefore a populati...
The purpose of this study is to better understand the causes of stroke in people with cancer. Active cancer increases the risk of stroke. We do not know exactly why this occurs but one possible reason is that people with cancer may have thicker blood than people without cancer. Thick blood can sometimes cause blood clots to form in the heart, which can then travel to the brain and cause stroke. This study is being done to help figure out why this and other causes of stroke occu...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a dynamic splinting system for knee flexion contracture following a total knee arthroplasty.
PrEvention of posttraumatic contractuRes with Ketotifen II (PERK II) is a Phase III randomized, controlled, double blinded multicenter trial with 3 parallel groups (Ketotifen 2 mg or 5 mg or lactose placebo twice daily orally for 6 weeks) and a primary endpoint of elbow extension-flexion range of motion (ROM) arc at 12 weeks post-randomization.
The main purpose of the study is to get information about the safety and efficacy of treatment with Dapsone to prevent the disability after ischemic Stroke, in patients diagnosed with anterior territory brain infarct.
Developmental dysplasia of the hip is the most common musculoskeletal disorder in infancy, with a reported prevalence of 2% of all newborns. Although newborn screening programs based on clinical examination with Ortolani and Barlow tests were introduced in the 1950's and 1960's with early abduction splinting of the 2% testing positive, the prevalence of late cases warranting surgery has remained stable, around one per 1000. This has led to the introduction of ultrasound as an a...
This is a prospective, randomized, multi-center pilot study of isolated, displaced neck fractures of the fifth metacarpal. The patients are randomly assigned to osteosynthesis with antegrade intramedullary splinting or conservative treatment.
Aim of this randomized controlled study is to test if intensive polyintervention therapy including life style modifications targeting at reduction of modifiable risk factors of stroke can reduce the risk of post-stroke cognitive decline compared to a group of patients receiving standard care.
This is a pragmatic, multi-center, non-interventional, non-randomized prospective observational study.
The 2006 American Heart Association / American Stroke Association Council on Stroke Guidelines for Prevention of Stroke in Patients With Ischemic Stroke or Transient Ischemic recommended that patients with cryptogenic stroke take antithrombotic drugs (i.e. aspirin) in order to prevent a second stroke. When a stroke patient is found to have atrial fibrillation (AF), the guidelines recommend oral anticoagulation due to its superior efficacy over aspirin for stroke prevention. Phy...
