Comparative Study of Circular Stapling Instruments

After removing the rectum at surgery, bowel continuity can sometimes be restored by an anastomosis between the anus and the bowel. This anastomosis is most commonly created by the use of surgical circular stapling instruments. In a retrospective pilot study the risk of developing an acute leak in the anastomosis was increased with one of the most commonly used instruments in Sweden as compared to the other brand in use. In the current study the patient is randomized to either o...

Reliability of Point-of-Care INR Measurements in Patients With Antiphospholipid-Antibody Syndrome Treated With Warfarin

The antiphospholipid-antibody syndrome (APLA), which includes lupus anticoagulant, anticardiolipin, and anti-beta-2-glycoproteinI antibodies, is a thrombophilic disorder associated with arterial thrombosis, venous thrombosis or both. Patients diagnosed with APLA have a higher risk of recurrent thrombosis than do patients without known antibodies. Currently, warfarin is considered the anticoagulant of choice for prophylactic antithrombotic treatment for APLA patients after their...

Comparison of Prosthetic Assessment Tools and Factors Influencing the Outcome

Background and rational: A large number of instruments exists to assess upper limb prosthetic function. However, they differ substantially in terms of psychometric properties and content. Furthermore, there is no "gold standard" and nearly every single center uses a unique set of instruments. This fact prevents the linking of the commonly small (due to the limited number of patients in each center) data sets of different centers and makes comparisons between different fittings...

Developing an Atlas to Teach Nurses to Clean Micro-instruments Used in Cataract Surgery: Effect on Patient Safety

Aims and objectives The purpose of this study was to develop an atlas to explore the effect of micro-instrument cleaning on the safety of cataract surgery. Background Cataract surgery safety is affected by many factors, the most influential of which is the quality of instrument cleaning. Previous studies focused on the reaction in the eye after cataract surgery. None offered a solution for manually cleaning ophthalmic micro-instruments or response data for surgical instruments...

Observational Data Collection of Surgical Outcomes in the Treatment of Vaginal Prolapse With AMS Products

Observational (meaning that we are simply collecting whatever information the surgeon typically collects when they see their patients; there is no change to the care the patient receives as a result of being part of the registry) data collection on the surgical outcomes of AMS prolapse products; we predict that patients will be significantly improved as a result of the surgery.

Comparison of Energy Instruments and Stapling Device to Dissect Intersegmental Plane in Segmentectomy

According to published studies, there are two main approaches in the dissection of intersegmental plane: stapling devices and energy instrument separation. However, only a few retrospective studies focused on the perioperative outcomes of these two approaches, and there has been no definitive conclusion about which method is better. So the investigators want to conduct a prospective study, trying to figure out this problem.

Calorie Balance Monitoring and Analysis of Body Composition and Hydration Status

The investigators are developing two new medical instruments: 1. the Intelligent Sensor Belt (ISB), and 2. the Body Composition and Hydration Status Analyzer (BC-HS-A). ISB serves the purpose of measuring calorie/ energy consumption of the human body during physical activity. The BC-HS-A measures the body composition, i.e. the fat and lean body mass and the hydration status i.e the amount of water inside and outside of the body cells. The goal of this pilot study is to obtai...

Developing Rectal USPE Measures

The purpose of this study is to: (a) adapt existing vaginal USPE items/instruments for evaluation of similar elements of rectal compartment use; (b) develop these scales using 3 distinct semi-solid formulations that represent a range of physicochemical and rheological properties of microbicides that are currently being designed for dual compartment use; and (c) develop novel USPE instruments to capture the experience of product use in the context of receptive anal intercourse ...

EXD-959 Orthodontic Brackets and EXD-961 Related Instruments Trial

The purpose of this study is to assess the performance of the EXD-959 self-ligating ceramic bracket system using EXD 961 instruments in the treatment of orthodontic malocclusion. The information gained in this study and other studies will be used to evaluate the clinical performance of the bracket system during orthodontic treatment and to substantiate marketing claims for the bracket system, open/close instrument and de-bonding instrument.

Conventional Versus Patient-specific Instruments in Total Knee Arthroplasty

Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) has a high success rate for addressing pain and improving function. However, in instances where incorrect positioning and malignment of the TKA components are observed, patients can experience a range of negative postoperative outcomes such as loss of thickness of polyethylene tibial bearings, eccentric loading, implant loosening, and eventual early revision. To avoid these complications, achieving a postoperative alignment within the range of 0°...

Random Comparison of LigaSure and Disposable Staples for Laparoscopic Surgery

The purpose of this research is to compare two different standard of care surgical methods for the following large bowel (colon) procedures: laparoscopic right colectomy, total colectomy, and left colectomy. The study will compare electrocautery, used with surgical clips and/or surgical staplers, and the Ligasure vessel sealer. The investigators will be looking at which procedure is faster and more cost efficient and the investigators will calculate hospital expenses for the t...

The Feasibility and Safety of Instruments in Transanal Total Mesorectal Excision (TaTME) for Rectal Cancer

Colorectal cancer is one of the leading deadly diseases in the world. Due to the TME (total mesorectal excision) for the last decades, the survival and relapse rate of rectal cancer patients have been considerably improved. However, anatomical limitations in pelvic space hinder the further optimization of surgical treatment Thus, the natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) emerges as an alternative surgical strategy. Of note, transanal total mesorectal excision ...

Single Incision Laparoscopic Appendectomy in the Community Utilizing Conventional Instruments

There is a move to "scarless surgery" and this achieved by doing laparoscopic abdominal surgery though a single small umbilical incision. A technique for laparoscopic appendectomy done through a single incision utilizing conventional instruments has been developed. The operative risk of the single incision approach is no different that the standard three incision laparoscopic appendectomy. The goal is to study the operative time, length of hospital stay, and complications fr...
