Evaluation of Patient Analgesia After Bloc Serratus

Thorax traumas are very common in severe traumatology, including road accidents, representing the second most frequent site (after head injury, according to the FIRST study). These thoracic lesions are the cause of many complications (pneumothorax, hemothorax, lung infections, atelectasis). The national recommendations recommend the use of multi-modal analgesia with the use of regional loco anaesthesia for pain management and prevention of respiratory complications, incl...

Emergency Management of Minor Blunt Thoracic Trauma

Thoracic traumas are frequent causes of emergency department admissions and the third most common cause of death from trauma. Although emergency management of major thoracic traumas that have high mortality and morbidity were discussed and well-understood in detail in the literature, there are limited information regarding diagnosis, emergency management, treatment and follow-up after discharge of patients with minor blunt thoracic traumas. The investigators aimed to investig...

Computed Tomography (CT) Coronary Angiogram Evaluation in Cancer Patients Having CT Thorax, Abdomen and Pelvis

Currently patients with certain cancer usually have routine follow up (Computed Tomography of Thorax, Abdomen and Pelvis) CT TAP scans to see response to treatment or relapse. The study proposal allows the evaluation of the coronary arteries by modifying the current CT TAP technique without significant additional procedures, intravenous contrast or radiation - i.e. an opportunistic Computed Tomography Coronary Angiogram (CTCA) without any penalty. The question is does performin...

Platelet Inhibitor Treated Patients With Head Injury Trauma Meeting NICE Criteria : is the CT-scan Mandatory ?

At the emergencies rooms, patients with head trauma meeting one of the NICE criteria, which include antiplatelet inhibitors treatment, are considered as patients with a risk of cerebral haemorrage and are taken systematically for a CT-scanner. However, there are more and more antiplatelet inhibitor's patient with minor head injury traumas seen at the emergencies room and the efficiency of this NICE criteria is controversial on litterature. This study aims to determine t...

Evaluation of a Pneumotachograph (SPI) for the Production of PET and CT Acquisitions Synchronized With Breath for the Assessment of Extension of Lung Cancer

This is a pilot study, single-center, prospective, open-label, to assess the acceptability and performance of the experimental medical device (SPI) used during an imaging examination (PET / CT 4D imaging in synchronized mode centered on the thorax). Each patient will be its own control, since the imaging examination will be synchronized simultaneously with the two systems: tested Medical Device (SPI) and reference Medical Device(RPM).

Dysesthesia Study After Sternotomy

Chronic pain associated to sternotomy occurs in 40 to 50% of patients after cardiac surgery. 33 to 66% of these patients suffer during 3 month and 25 to 33% have postoperative pain for at least 1 year. This pain has often negative effects on daily activity. Despite its frequency and importance, the etiology of this chronic pain is not completely understood. The goal of this study is to understand the mechanism of this chronic pain, to prevent and/or to treat better in ...

Thorax Enlarging Surgery: a Novel Surgical Approach to Emphysema

There is a growing population of end-stage COPD patients for whom surgical treatments like lung transplantation and lung volume reduction surgery are not possible. In such patients, size mismatch between large emphysematous lungs and a restricted chest wall is a major cause for the reduction of dynamic lung volumes and consequent dyspnea. We hypothesized that enlargement of the thorax would be a potential alternative strategy to volume reduction surgery as it may improve lung m...

Impact of the ProbeFix on the Workflow of Pharmacological Stress Echocardiography Examinations

Pharmacological stress-echocardiography examinations are routinely performed in daily clinical practice. Usually, the echo probe is manually placed on the patient's thorax by the physician. The ProbeFix is a novel device, enabling the fixation of the ultrasound probe on the patient's thorax. Therefore, there is no need to manually hold the probe. This may improve the standardization of the examination and my reduce its duration. The present trial will investigate, whether the u...

Doxepin Hydrochloride in Treating Esophageal Pain in Patients With Thoracic Cancer Receiving Radiation Therapy to the Thorax With or Without Chemotherapy

This pilot randomized clinical trial studies the effects, good and/or bad, of taking doxepin hydrochloride compared to placebo (inactive drug) in treating esophageal pain in patients with thoracic cancer receiving radiation therapy to the thorax with or without chemotherapy. Doxepin hydrochloride is a tricyclic antidepressant drug which was recently shown to be helpful for mouth pain in patients receiving radiation therapy. Part of doxepin hydrochloride's drug action takes plac...

Screening for Occult Malignancy in Idiopathic Venous Thromboembolism

Prospective controlled randomized study. Aim of this study is to assess the feasibility and sensitivity of CT scanning of the thorax, abdomen and pelvis for the detection of occult cancer in patients with idiopathic venous thromboembolism. Patients presenting with acute idiopathic venous thromboembolism, free from already known cancer and in whom a routine battery screening has excluded the presence of cancer, are randomized to receive either a CT scanning of the thorax, abdome...

Pre-operative Contrast Enhanced CT to Improve Delineation of the Tumorbed in Radiotherapy for Breast Cancer.

Rationale: Whole breast irradiation with 50 Gy after lumpectomy has been shown to reduce the local recurrence rate with a factor 3 to 4. An additional boost of 16 Gy to the tumorbed has been shown to improve the local control rate even further. However, this boost dose appears to reduce not only the local recurrences in the tumorbed, but also elsewhere in the breast, suggesting that the boost may not always be delivered at the correct region. In addition, even with the boost do...

Comparison Between NICOM-Cheetah and Flotrac-Vigileo for Cardiac Output Monitoring.

Cardiac output (CO) monitoring is an important tool in critically ill patients with haemodynamic instability. Traditionally, this has been accomplished using the pulmonary artery catheter (PAC). However, its use has been associated with various complications such as pneumothorax, arrhythmia, infection, pulmonary valve injury and embolism. This has led to the development of various minimally invasive cardiac output monitoring devices such as the oesophageal Doppler, PiCCO®, NiC...

Pancreatic Injury and Management Outcome

Pancreatic injury is a relatively rare and result in significant morbidity and mortality. Estimates for the incidence of pancreatic injury range from 0.2-12% of abdominal traumas. Many factors, such as patient stability, the acuity of concomitant life-threatening injuries, and the need for damage control procedures must therefore be balanced when considering the proper approach to pancreatic injury management. However, few prospective studies have investigated the perioperati...

Physical Therapy Treatment Once a Month Versus Once a Week for Posture Improvement in Children and Adolescents

Background: Life time prevalence of Low Back Pain among Children and Adolescent ranges from 32% to 66%. This prevalence gets higher with age and among 17 years old it`s equal to prevalence among adults. Previous episode of Low Back pain is a predicting risk factor to the next one, hence we should do preventative care at a young age, even before the first attack occur. Poor posture was found as one of the risk factors for Low Back Pain in children. Adolescence with neutral postu...
