Point A, the major critical point for dose specification of intracavitary brachytherapy, is defined as the crossing of uterine artery and ureter in treatment of cervical cancer. However, the currently advocated systems use hypothetical point A (HPA) to estimate the dosimetry of brachytherapy. This study is to localize anatomic point A (APA) of cervical cancer patients for reference of radiotherapy. We will use laparoscopic clipping technique to localize APA for cervical cancer ...
The F-Point investigation is an open label, single centre prospective observational study in 3 cohorts of patients, one with low fibrinogen concentration, one with normal fibrinogen concentration, and one with high fibrinogen concentration To show statistical agreement between the fibrinogen level as recorded by the standard lab Clauss fibrinogen, and the fibrinogen level as recorded by the novel F-Point device.
Does presentation of clinical evidence for decision making at point-of-care improve prescribing patterns in ambulatory pediatrics?
There is currently a lack of evidence to support the use of perioperative point-of-care ultrasound to assess the outcomes in high surgical patients. Thus, the purpose of this study is to evaluate whether perioperative use of point-of-care ultrasound can reduce the worse postoperative outcomes in high surgical patients.
HIV Point-of-Care tests in Babies Study (BABY) - Operational evaluation of HIV Point-of-Care tests for very early infant HIV diagnostics in infants born to HIV infected mothers in Mbeya, Tanzania.
Innovative strategies to expedite HIV diagnosis among exposed infants, including at-birth testing and two portable point-of-care (POC) diagnostic systems, will be evaluated from an implementation framework. The programmatic impact of these tools on early infant diagnosis (EID) will be measured in comparison with parallel standard of care (SOC) HIV DNA PCR testing initiated at 6 weeks of age.
Diabetes mellitus, type 2, is a chronic disease which can be linked with many complications in connexion with impaired blood glucose balance. It diagnosis in risky subjects such as in patients with medical history of gestational diabetes is therefore imperative to prevent its complications. Actual guidelines recommend an oral tolerance glucose test, measuring glucose levels after oral glucose intake (75g), between 6 an 12 weeks after childbirth. But studies reveal a low ...
The aim of this study is to evaluate the effects of vibration anesthesia for reducing pain induced by trigger point injection of gastrocnemius. Sixty patients were randomized into the vibration or placebo group. In vibration groups, vibrator head was applied (100Hz) on the popliteal fossa, during the trigger point injection. In placebo group, same vibrator head was applied with switch-off sate. Then, a visual analog scale to evaluate the pain of trigger point injection and a f...
Comparison of single time point with dual time point PET imaging in the accuracy of diagnosing active lymphoma. Biopsy results or clinical/radiological progression will be used in conjunction with the PET data.
trigger point dry needling with intramuscular electrical stimulation vs trigger point dry needling
The purpose of the proposed research is to examine whether incorporating point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) early in diagnostic work-up of cardiopulmonary complaints will affect diagnosis, time to condition-specific intervention, and ultimately patient outcomes compared to usual care.
CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVE: Myofascial syndrome is the most frequent condition of chronic pain. The objective of the present study was to compare the analgesic action of acupuncture and trigger point injection combined with cyclobenzaprine and dipyrone. DESIGN AND SETTING: A randomized study was performed at the Pain Clinic. METHODS: Thirty patients were divided into two groups: G1 received trigger point injection of 0.25% bupivacaine (1 ml/point) twice a week, 10 mg/day cyclobenza...
The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of acupressure point P6 stimulation versus intravenous ondansetron plus metoclopramide versus no antiemetic prophylaxis during elective cesarean section under regional anesthesia.
Randomised Controlled Trial to Assess Accuracy, Feasibility, Acceptability, Cost Effectiveness and Impact of Point of Care CD4 Testing on HIV Diagnosis, Linkage to Care and Time to Antiretroviral Therapy Initiation among HIV Infected Patients in Rural Western Kenya.
The purpose of this study will be to assess the effect that the application of deep trigger point dry needling to latent trigger points has on strength measurements. Specifically, the effect of deep trigger point dry needling on the strength measurements of the gluteus medius musculature immediately following intervention will be investigated. The author hypothesizes that there will be a significant difference in strength measurements of the gluteus medius musculature between t...
This study will assess the short term response of thoracic spinal manipulation with or without trigger point dry needling in 58 subjects with a primary complaint of mechanical neck pain.
The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of myofascial trigger (MTP) point deactivation for tinnitus control in a population with tinnitus and myofascial pain.
Chronic Pelvic Pain (CPP) are around 10% of gynaecology referrals (Reiter Rc. 1990). Non-relaxing pelvic floor dysfunction (NRPFD) is an under-appreciated cause for CPP with dyspareunia where no pathology exists. The effectiveness of manual therapy in studies has shown statistically significant pre and post treatment differences. However no study has reviewed the efficacy in inclusion of trans- perineal trigger point dry needling used with manual therapy for NRPFD. This study w...
The investigators seek to assess the effectiveness of Project POINT (Planned Outreach, Intervention, Naloxone, and Treatment). Located in Indianapolis, Project POINT is a collaboration between Indianapolis Emergency Medical Services (EMS), the Eskenazi Emergency Department, Midtown Mental Health, and researchers at Indiana University. POINT is a quality improvement initiative that connects trained outreach workers with emergency department (ED) patients who experienced a non-fa...
There will be no difference between trigger point therapy and spinal manipulation in correcting a spine joint dysfunction in the back
The investigators prospectively want to compare 3 clinical tests for measuring blood troponin levels in patients presenting to the emergency room with thoracic pain probably related to a myocardial infarction with regard to the time necessary to obtain the test results. The tests are one laboratory based test and two point of care tests.
The purpose of this study is to develop and validate the accuracy of a low-cost "point-of-care" test (POCT) that allows monitoring of markers for anticoagulation and thrombosis (local coagulation or clotting of the blood), to be used by patients with advanced heart failure (AHF) on left ventricular assist device (LVAD) support. The investigators central hypothesis is that the fully-printed AT-POCT utilizing low-cost (printed) cassettes and detector will produce an inexpensive a...
The purpose of this study is to clarify whether distal-proximal point association is more effective than partial match point association by electro-acupuncture in the management of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting .
This study aims to investigate the outcome of hemolysis frequency when a hemolysis point of care test is introduced in a emergency department.
The purpose of this study is to determine if trigger point dry needling (TDN) is as effective as cortisone injection (CI) in reducing pain and improving function in patients with greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS).
