The purpose of this study is to determine wether skull trauma or neurosurgery affect the immune response to two vaccine types.
The intention is to enroll a specific sample of intubated patients. To compare the effect of respiratory gas conditioning on lung deposition and considering the well-known influences of lung pathology on lung deposition, intubated patients with healthy lungs will be included. Postoperative neurosurgery ventilated patients respond perfectly to this criteria. A previous study including 17 postoperative neurosurgery patients was performed in 2013 with a perfect collaboration betwe...
Post-operative wound infections can prolong hospital stays, increase rates of readmission to the intensive care unit, and increase the costs of treatment significantly. This study will conduct a prospective chart review of all patients undergoing elective spinal surgery on both the neurosurgery and orthopedic spine services at two facilities on an academic campus. We will collect the data of those patients who develop post-surgical infections. This data will then be analyzed an...
Investigators plan to study the role of spine surgery analgesic pathways - for procedures with high risk of postoperative pain - in improving the quality of recovery
Intra-spinal canal tumors are the general term of primary tumors from spinal cord or various tissues in the spinal canal and adjacent to the spinal cord, while the metastatic tumors are those from other sites other than spinal canal. Intra-spinal canal tumor is one of the most common diseases in neurosurgery, and surgery is the most effective treatment. Conventional open surgery is required to remove the posterior structures of the spine, which would lead to fracture of the pos...
Purpose of the study is to answer the question whether confocal laser endomicroscopy (CLE, also named 'optical biopsy') might improve the results of medically necessary neurosurgery to prove practicability, safety and harmlessness of CLE during neurosurgical procedures
The purpose of this study is to determine effect of combined medication of sufentanil and dexmedetomidine in patient controlled analgesia after neurosurgery.
This study aims to create an atlas based on the preliminary experience of the first feasibility study in neurosurgery. Hypothesis: That a confocal endomicroscope can be used during neurosurgery to provide in vivo histology that enables documentation of neurological pathology across a range of tumor ypes and grades, suitable for comparison with traditional histopathology from site‐matched biopsies.
There is a clear need in spine surgery to place pedicle screws in the right place in the spine with good accuracy to avoid damage to important structures (spinal cord, nerve roots or vertebral arteries). The objective of the study is to investigate the accuracy of screw placement during spine surgery.
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn whether delivering spine radiosurgery in a single large dose is better than delivering spine radiosurgery over 3 smaller doses. Researchers also want to learn about the effects of a single dose on participant's symptoms, pain, and quality-of-life.
The effects of cervical spine manual therapy, including mobilization and manipulation, on cervical spine range of motion, joint position sense, and balance is unknown among individuals with cervicogenic headache. Previous studies have indicated improved frequency of headache, decreased perceived disability, and demonstrated improved neuromuscular function following upper cervical manipulation. Other authors report improved cervical spine range of motion, joint position sense, a...
To date it is unknown how physical activity levels in adults is limited before and after lumbar spine surgery and if physical activity level is associated with disability and limitations of quality of life. The main objective is to compare physical activity preoperatively and 6 and 12 weeks postoperatively in patients undergoing lumbar spine surgery with norm data. In addition, we will study the association of changes in physical activity, disability and quality of live.
The study is to observe the effects of gabapentin premedication on postoperative pain,vomiting and nausea in patients undergoing neurosurgery. 100 neurosurgical patients are randomized into groups gabapentin(GG) or placebo(GP). Patients are given gabapentin or placebo orally the night before operation day and 2hours before surgery,respectively.The investigators hypothesized that lower incidence of postoperative pain,vomiting and nausea be observed in GG than GP.
The purpose of this program is to educate primary care physicians in four underserved clinics in eastern North Carolina about chronic kidney disease.
The goal of this clinical research study is to find out if combining thermal ablation (using a laser to heat tumor tissue in order to shrink the tumor size) and spine stereotactic radiosurgery (SSRS--a method for giving radiation) can help control cancer that has spread to the spine.
To identify patient characteristics associated with non-response after spine fusion surgery for the treatment of degenerative disc disease (DDD).
- Analysis of patient data and computed tomography scan of polytraumatized patients thoracic spine fractures - A concomitant sternal fracture was identified an indicator for an unstable thoracic spine fracture
In spine surgery postoperative pain can often be severe and difficult to treat.With the use of ultrasound, the performance of plane blocks and other techniques like root blocks, facet infiltration have become possible without the use of either unreliable " pop-techniques" or the use of x-ray.The erector spinae block was recently described as a safe and simple and safe technique for neuropathic pain and acute post surgical pain, with effect on the dorsal rami of the spinal nerve...
The purpose of this study is to examine hormonal and environmental risk factors (and possible gene-environmental interactions) involved in the etiology of lupus nephritis. Our study will focus on exposures to occupational and environmental agents that have been linked to the development of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) or renal disease (e.g., silica dust, smoking). We will also assess potential gene environment interactions. We will examine these exposures in 100 patien...
The aim of this observational study is to establish estimation of global lordosis of the cervical spine (from C3 to C7) in patients with cervicobrachial neuralgia.
This study aims to compare whether or not there is a difference in the effectiveness of upper back (thoracic spine) mobilizations versus manipulations used in a population of patients with mechanical neck pain. The investigators hypothesize that patients receiving a manipulative technique will experience better outcomes than patients receiving the mobilization techniques and these results will be evident at a 48-hour follow-up.
This study seeks to determine if the correction of a sacroiliac lesion can produce a functional change in cervical spine. Reduction of a sacroiliac joint lesion may alter cervical spine function.
The objective of this study is to describe the change in the percentage of fat in the lumbar spine.
There is considerable interest in using in-wound antibiotics (IWA) to prevent infection after spine surgery. An adequate evaluation of IWA is lacking and prior studies are limited by confounding and bias. This prospective study will enroll spine surgeons across the country to complete a survey about their knowledge, attitudes, and practices for using in-wound antibiotics.
We´re undertaking a randomized controlled non-inferiority trial to evaluate the ability of a simple and low-cost method (Hibler´s method of wrapping the patient in multiple insulating layers) to prevent intraoperative heat-loss in children undergoing neurosurgery under anesthesia in Malawi. Our control group will be heated actively with the use of warm-air blankets. Our aim is to evaluate whether Hibler´s method can provide a cheap and technically simple way of adequately pr...
