The aim of this study was to compare the ability of clinical scores (P-SAP, OSA50, DES-OSA, STOP-Bang with former algorithm, and STOP-Bang with new algorithm).
In our study, we aimed to investigate the relationship between STOP-BANG and 4-Variable Screening questionnaires in postoperative period in patients who underwent bariatric surgery.
To establish the Prosthetics Registry and Outcomes in Urology at Duke (PROUD) which will serve as a retro- and prospective data repository that our team will use to optimize patient satisfaction, lower cost and reduce morbidity associated with penile prosthesis implantation. The study team will collect retrospective data from subjects at Duke University and Duke Raleigh Hospitals who have undergone genitourinary prosthesis implantation from January 1, 1996 onward. Prospective d...
Derivation and Validation of a combination of STOP-Bang score and DES-OSA score to exclude OSA or to confirm OSA in patients.
The primary objectives of this proposal are to develop objective pre-deployment predictors of PTSD and test two pre-deployment resiliency interventions.
Lupus is a systemic autoimmune disease that can present with many varied symptoms, including joint pain, fevers, kidney disease, and rashes. Lupus can affect anyone, but it is most common in younger women. The Duke Lupus Registry will collect information and blood samples from patients with lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus or cutaneous lupus) seen in the Duke Rheumatology clinics. The goal of this Registry is to understand how lupus changes over time so that we can i...
The goal of this study is to evaluate the utilization of conventional 'thermally' polarized perfluorinated gases mixed with oxygen as an exogenous inert contrast agent to image the airway spaces in subjects with suspected lung disease, post deployment in Iraq and Afghanistan. This is an open label proof of concept study expanding on work here at Duke.
The investigators will perform a diagnostic accuracy study comparing tracheal breath sound recordings in awake individuals to the STOP-Bang screening questionnaire, using the apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) score determined by polysomnography as the gold standard.
This 12-month study is for spouses or significant others of service members who have returned from Afghanistan or Iraq. This study will determine if participating in a telephone discussion group, offering education, skills building, and support, will help increase post-deployment adjustment. There will be 225 spouses recruited for this study.
Following deployment to Operations Enduring and Iraqi Freedom and Operation New Dawn (OEF/OIF/OND), Veterans report breathing problems, difficulty exercising and other symptoms. These symptoms may be related to deployment exposures, such as regional dust and sand, smoke from burning trash, and local industry. Studies have reported poor air quality, but very little is known about the effect that exposure to this polluted air may have on Veterans' short- and long-term health. Inv...
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic, systemic, inflammatory autoimmune disease that results in the destruction of joints, connective tissues, muscle, tendons and fibrous tissue. Effective therapy to manage RA still does not exit at present. Jia Wei Niu Bang Zi pill (NBZP) consists of Chinese herbals which has been widely used in the treatment of RA patients in China for hundreds of years to relieve pain and prevent the affected joints pejorative. However, there is no systema...
Although obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is common, most of the patients are undiagnosed. OSA is associated with a large number of co-morbidities, and thus, it is of great importance to identify the patients and start treatment in order to reduce the risks for complications. Current screening tools are quite unspecific and the golden standard methodology for diagnosis, polysomnography, is expensive and time consuming, thus not suitable for screening. In perioperative medicine the...
Single patient treatment with everolimus.
Obesity is a major risk factor for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). However, OSA is still largely under diagnosed in patients with a high cardiovascular risk. In this population the STOP-BANG questionnaire facilitates OSA screening. Moreover, blood bicarbonate concentration is a simple tool to screen for chronic respiratory disease and if elevated, is a marker of cardiometabolic comorbidities in obese patients. A combination of blood bicarbonate concentration and STOP BANG score ...
Comparison with use of Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS) analysis of two methods of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) with drug eluting stent: After successful drug eluting stent implantation, patients were randomized into two groups: Group A had no further dilatation, and Group B had additional post-dilatation with a noncompliant balloon. The investigators performed IVUS analysis in groups A and B just before randomization and after post-dilatation in group B.
Single patient treatment with everolimus.
Background: Previous deployments like that to the Persian Gulf in 1991 produced veterans with post-deployment symptom-based health problems with no medical explanation. This was termed Gulf War illness or medically unexplained illness (MUI). If previous wars are any indication, some soldiers currently deployed to hostile areas also will return home with unexplained symptom-based illnesses. However, there is virtually no pre-war, prospective data on risk and resilience factors a...
The primary objective of this study is to determine the diagnostic efficiency and accuracy of using the StentOptimizer. The ability of StentOptimizer to influence post deployment treatment strategy will be assessed and compared to the IVUS system. In addition, the correlation of diameter measurements between the StentOptimizer, IVUS and 2D QCA will be assessed.
This study aims to examine the use of protocol directed sedation using the Duke PAD protocol with the current sedation medications of propofol or dexmedetomidine compared to the PAD protocol with midazolam, per cardiac intensive care unit (CICU) usual care, as an initial step toward understanding the best management of sedation in these patients.
Hypothesis: There exists patients who have met ALS or PMA diagnostic criteria and subsequently experienced robust and sustained improvement, i.e. a "reversal." Thirty-eight of these patients were identified in the prior Duke University study, Documentation of Known ALS Reversals (St.A.R. Protocol 1, Duke IRB Pro00076395). The investigators hypothesize these patients have had different environmental exposures than patients with typically progressive ALS. Identification of specif...
The purpose of this study is the examine the feasibility of and estimate the efficacy of a preoperative exercise (i.e. prehabilitation) program in 40 up to sedentary older adults (i.e. age 60 and over) undergoing abdominal, urologic or gynecologic surgery under the Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) protocol at Duke, using a variety of techniques to measure the possible effect of this intervention. Study patients will undergo a program of prehabilitation exercise for 6 days...
Infective endocarditis is a potentially lethal disease that has undergone major changes over the last decades. The Duke Criteria are recommended for evaluation of probability of presence of infective endocarditis by current ESC guidelines. However, since the introduction of Duke criteria in 1994, characteristics of patients presenting with potential infective endocarditis have substantially changed, especially in tertiary care facilities, towards a high proportion of patients w...
The purpose of this study is to study the implementation and impact of an early warning system to detect and treat sepsis in the emergency room. We are observing the implementation of a Sepsis Machine Learning Model on all Adult patients. All data (observations field notes, interview recording & transcripts, and survey responses) will be stored on HIPAA-compliant Duke servers behind the Duke firewall, and requiring password-protected user authentication to access. The risk to p...
Nathan Tintle, in conjunction with others at Dordt College including Dr. Kristin Van De Griend and undergraduate student research assistants, have agreed to collaborate with Hope College to analyze the impact of different water filter deployment strategies in schools and villages on diarrhea and other medical and economic outcomes. The distribution of the water filters will begin in September 2018 to Child Hope schools in 4 different countries (Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Ho...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether prolonged inflation time on drug-eluting stents deployment for ST-elevation myocardial Infarction was better than conventional stents deployment.
