Since Chiari malformation is a common disease, many patients require surgical operation to relieve pressure from the back portion of the skull. The purpose of this research is to compare two different materials that are routinely used to repair the opening in the brain covering during the surgery on the back portion of the skull in patients with symptomatic Chiari Malformation. None of the materials used in this study nor any procedures are experimental.
This prospective, randomized study will evaluate the performance of the Osseotite Certain Prevail implant when compared to that of the non-lateralized version of the implant. Study (null) hypothesis: the crestal bone changes that take place after placement and loading of the Osseotite lateralized implants will be the same as for a similar but non-lateralized Osseotite Certain implant.
This prospective, randomized study evaluates the performance and crestal bone changes difference between the Osseotite Certain Prevail vs the non-lateralized design of the implant.

The purpose of the study is to determine the proper use of lower back screws and rods (instrumentation) and bony fusion in subjects with one level of degenerative spinal narrowing (stenosis) compressing nerves to the legs with one spinal bone slipping forward on another (spondylolisthesis). There are two types of operations that surgeons perform for this problem. Some spinal surgeons remove some bone in the back (laminectomy) to decompress the nerves. Other surgeons perform ...
To assess positive blood cultures (PBCs) in hemodialysis central venous catheter (CVC) patients using two FDA cleared devices: ClearGuard HD end caps compared to conventional end caps.
Endonasal endoscopic approach to the skull base has been expanded in the last several years owing to advances in the radiological aspect that provided a better evaluation of the lesions and the surrounding structures, technological advances that include angled endoscope, development of high-resolution cameras, high definition monitors and navigation systems and better anatomical experience. The endoscopic endonasal approach now provides access to frontal sinus to the second cer...
Patients routinely receive sedation during a colonoscopy or upper endoscopy (esophagogastroduodenoscopy; EGD) procedure. Propofol is a sedative that can be used during these procedures. The purpose of this study is to determine if this CAPS device enables a physician/registered nurse (RN) team to safely and effectively administer propofol sedation during colonoscopy or EGD procedures relative to current sedation practices.

Study (null) hypothesis: This is an observational study in which no concurrent control group will be observed. Results of the study will be compared with the performance of other Osseotite implants from published Osseo...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if proton beam therapy, with or without photon beam radiation therapy, is effective in the treatment of skull base chondrosarcoma. The safety of this treatment will also be studied. Objectives: Primary 1. To establish the efficacy of proton beam therapy with and without photon beam radiation therapy for skull base chondrosarcoma. Secondary 1. To determine the patterns of failure of skull base chondro...
Amid consistently worsening suicide rates, in 2012 the U.S.Surgeon General's National Strategy for Suicide Prevention proposed to "change the narrative" about suicide prevention to include a focus on promoting hope and belongingness. Despite hopelessness and thwarted belongingness being among the most replicated risk factors for suicide, many widely implemented suicide prevention efforts instead emphasize the identification of acute suicide risk and referral to mental health tr...
Low back pain (LBP) is the leading cause of disability worldwide and has substantial impacts on pain and function for an individual. Some individuals with LBP seek physical therapy for their condition. The purpose of the study is to determine whether individuals with LBP have improved pain and disability following physical therapy targeting either the low back only or low back plus hip(s).
The study investigates the impact of abdominoplasty in the post partum population on the symptoms of back pain and urinary incontinence. Patients presenting for abdominoplasty fill out validated questionnaires for both back pain (Oswestry Disability Index) and urinary incontinence (ICIQ-UI short form). They complete the same questionnaires 6 weeks and 6 months post op. The prospectively gathered data gives an insight into the incidence of functional symptoms in this post partum...
