This is a shortened interrupted time series pilot evaluation over a twelve month period to evaluate whether the combined Stepping Stones and Creating Futures intervention can reduce men's perpetration of IPV and women's experience of IPV, strengthen livelihoods and reduce gender inequality.
This study evaluates whether the behavioural/structural interventions of Stepping Stones and Creating Futures can reduce the incidence of intimate partner violence in urban informal settlements amongst young people. Half the participants will receive the interventions, while the other half will be in a control wait-list, only receiving the intervention after final data collection.
Kidney stones are very common. They affect 3-5% of the population in the United States. Many people are hospitalized for the treatment of kidney stones and some may die. Better understanding of what causes kidney stones is useful in both the treatment and prevention of kidney stones. However, exactly what causes kidney stones is unknown. The most common type of kidney stones contains calcium, which sometimes is attached to a part of the kidney important in producing the fin...
The aim of this research is to use a controlled laboratory setting to determine whether bacteria isolated from kidney stones of patients play a role in the formation of non-infectious kidney stones. It is well known that struvite stones are associated with active bacterial infection, however the role of bacteria in the formation of non-infection stones (like calcium oxalate) is not well characterized and there are theories that bacteria are involved in the making of these stone...
- Does stepping training with or without external feedback change functional ability of ambulatory patients with iSCI immediately after training? - Are there significant differences between the immediate effects of stepping training with or without external feedback in ambulatory patients with iSCI?
Brushite kidney stones are a unique form of calcium phosphate stones that have a tendency to recur quickly if patients are not aggressively treated with stone prevention measures. Little research has been undertaken to better understand the clinical history and potential urinary abnormalities that may predispose one to these troublesome kidney stones.
Background: Intensive Care Unit (ICU) survivors ofter develop an acquired weakness due to a Critical Illness Polyneuropathy (CIP). Early mobilization in ICU, by reducing the bed rest and decreasing the oxidative stress, was shown to represent a valid preventive option. Purpose: To evaluate whether ICU sessions of stepping verticalization associated with Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) of the lower limbs are able to reduce the occurrence of CIP in Acquired Brain Injured...
Through Stepping Up 4 Your Child, non-custodial fathers will be provided with a comprehensive, solution-oriented program featuring group based parent education and individualized case management to help them achieve financial independence, increase their parenting skills, and develop a co-parenting alliance.
Objective: The objective of this research is to undertake a safety and viability study of FES-evoked stepping in individuals with paraplegia. The rationale for this objective is based upon the need to clarify whether physiological limitations, especially orthostatic intolerance, limit functional mobility outcomes. The cardiovascular, autonomic, and muscle metabolic factors governing orthostatic tolerance during skin-surface FES stepping will be investigated, since this f...
Verticalization was reported to improve the level of arousal and awareness in patients with severe acquired brain injury (ABI) and to be safe in ICU. The investigators evaluated the effectiveness of a very early stepping verticalization protocol on the functional and neurological outcome of patients affected by disorder of consciousness due to ABI. Consecutive patients with Vegetative State or Minimally Conscious State were enrolled in ICU on the third day after an ABI. They w...
This study will be conducted to compare the success and complication rates of ureteroscopy, and shockwaves lithotripsy for treatment of upper ureteric stones ≤1 cm.
The present study is to examine the effects of interactive stepping exercise on executive function and gait variability in community-dwelling older adults
The study determines whether standard medical care (dopamine) affects learning and retention of a postural stepping task in people with Parkinson's disease (PD) and whether training on a postural stepping task generalises to performance on an untrained postural task. Half the participants will train on the stepping task after they have taken their first dose of dopamine for the day (i.e. "on" medication state) while the other half will train on the same stepping task before tak...
The aim of this research is to determine an effective antibiotic regimen following definitive surgical therapy of kidney stones caused by bacterial infection (struvite stones).
- Are there differences in immediate effects of stepping training with and without the use of visually weight-taking machine (VWTM) on variables relating to well-controlled walking and walking symmetry in ambulatory patients with stroke? - Are there differences of 4-week stepping training with and without the use of VWTM on variables relating to well-controlled walking and walking symmetry in ambulatory patients with stroke?
Patients with Parkinson's disease have internal rhythm dysfunction, which may affect the rhythmic movements such as walking. Poor regularity of the rhythmic movement may lead to freezing of gait. This study will apply rhythmic auditory cues on the stepping-in-place training and we will investigate if the behavior and neuroelectrophysiology would change after auditory cueing training. We hypothesize the variation of rhythmic movements such as walking and stepping-in-place will b...
To discuss necessity of cholecystectomy for patients with stones in their bile ducts and gallbladders in the absence of absolute operation indications of cholecystectomy after clearance of bile duct stones with ERCP.
ERCP plays an important role in management of common bile duct stones. Herein the investigators compare preoperative against intraoperative ERCP. 210 were included but only 198 patients were randomly divided into two groups; PES/LC (100 patients) and LC/IOES (98 patients). The total hospital stay were significantly shorter in the group of LC/IOES
110 patients with common bile duct (CBD) stones and had one or more anther preoperative predictors for high risk for difficult cholecystectomy admitted to departement of surgery of Minia university hospital for ERCP then laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC). the patient divided into 2 equal group. in group 1, nasobiliary (NB) catheter was inserted during ERCP after CBD clearance. In group 2, only CBD clearance was done. In all patients LC was done within the same week of ERCP. Tan...
Background. X-ray cholangiography has a high sensitivity and specificity of detecting bile duct stones and is the gold standard. There are no studies describing the sensitivity and specificity of IFC for bile duct stone detection. Research question. What is the sensitivity of IFC to visualize bile duct stones? Method. Prospective study with 40 patients undergoing planned laparoscopic cholecystectomy with preoperative magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) (gold sta...
It is a cross sectional study in which we are tying to determine frequency of type of gall stones in our setup(Lahore, Pakistan).
to assess safety, efficacy of Flexible ureteroscopy (FURS) holmium:YAG laser lithotripsy (LL) compared to extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL) in management of lower calyceal stones (LC) stones.
Very large bile duct stones are difficult to remove. Dilation-assisted stone extraction, also termed small endoscopic sphincterotomy plus endoscopic papillary large balloon dilatation, is safe and effective technique for the treatment of large CBD stones. However, in approximately 5-10% of patients, the removal of large bile duct stones may be difficult. For this selected group of patients for whom all conventional endoscopic stone treatment devices have failed, laser lithotrip...
Bile duct stones is a common biliary tract disease, which is characterized by high morbidity and frequent recurrence. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is an effective therapy for common bile duct stones, and endoscopic sphincterotomy (EST) which associated with recurrent cholangiolithiasis often carried out on difficult intubation or extracting stones, probably due to enhanced reflux of intestinal contents that changes the microenvironment. Patients with ch...
The investigators aimed to evaluate whether these parameters could be guides for us in the selection of RIRS or Mini-PNL procedures in kidney stones that are smaller than 2 cm. The patients that have kidney stones smaller than two cm and be planned to undergo surgery were randomized into 2 groups prospectively. RIRS was performed in the RIRS group using a 7.5-F fiberoptic flexible ureterorenoscope while Mini-PCNL group was dilated up to 16.5F and mini-PCNL was performed with 1...
