NCT ID: NCT03515811 Not yet recruiting - Thoracic Diseases Clinical Trials

A Post Market Study to Confirm the Safety and Performance of the Signia™ Stapling System.

Start date: October 2018
Phase:
Study type: Observational

The objectives of this prospective, two-arm, multicenter post-market study is to confirm safety and performance through the incidence of subjects reporting serious adverse device effects (ADEs) up to and including 30 days following use of Signia™ Stapling System with Endo GIA™ with Tri-Staple™ Technology and Tri-Staple™ 2.0 Intelligent Reloads in subjects undergoing indicated abdominal or thoracic procedures for resection, transection and creation of anastomosis per the IFU.

NCT ID: NCT03490929 Recruiting - Trauma Abdomen Clinical Trials

CEUS for Blunt Abdominal Trauma in Children

Start date: June 1, 2018
Phase: Phase 4
Study type: Interventional

Children with blunt abdominal trauma often get a CT as the first line imaging to evaluate for intra-abdominal organ injury. CT scans have some downsides with regard to radiation exposure, costs, and need for transport. Contrast enhanced ultrasonography has recently shown some promise as a way to detect intra-abdominal organ injury and may be able to replace the need for conventional CT scanning, without the need for ionizing radiation and the ability to be performed at the bedside.

NCT ID: NCT03490305 Completed - War Injury Clinical Trials

Penetrating Abdominal Injuries From the Battle of Mosul

Exlap
Start date: November 11, 2017
Phase:
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

The battle of Mosul was characterized by the use of improvised explosive devices, human shields and suicide bombers in an urban setting. It is unclear whether this type of warfare cause more extensive abdominal injuries to civilians than combatants. All patients admitted with penetrating abdominal injury subjected to an exploratory laparotomy at Emergency Hospital, Erbil, between October 17, 2016 and July 16, 2017 will be included. Differences in demographics, injury mechanism, time since injury, clinical status on arrival, intraoperative findings, postoperative complications and outcome will be studied.

NCT ID: NCT03473249 Recruiting - Accidental Fall Clinical Trials

Effectiveness of Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound

Start date: May 9, 2018
Phase: Phase 4
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of the study is to generate pilot data describing test characteristics of contrast enhanced ultrasound in young children with concern for abdominal trauma. The primary objective in this study is to determine the sensitivity and specificity of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) compared to abdominal Computed Tomography (CT) in the detection of abdominal solid organ injury in young children < 8 years of age with concern for blunt abdominal trauma.

NCT ID: NCT03466684 Completed - Clinical trials for Acute Compartment Syndrome

BIA Guided-fluid Management in Postinjury Open Abdomen

BGFM
Start date: January 1, 2013
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Fluid overload (FO), resulting from high volume fluid therapy, is frequent and contributes to excessive visceral edema, delayed fascial closure, and adverse outcomes among postinjury open abdomen (OA) patients. Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) is a promising tool in monitoring fluid status and FO. Thus, we sought to investigate the efficacy of BIA-directed resuscitation among postinjury OA patients.

NCT ID: NCT03147690 Recruiting - Abdominal Injury Clinical Trials

Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound in the Evaluation of Abdominal Injuries in Children

Start date: November 1, 2017
Phase: Phase 1/Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

This study proposes to evaluate the accuracy of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) in diagnosing abdominal solid organ injuries in pediatric patients. 146 subjects will be enrolled across approximately 8 sites in the US. All subjects will have had a Computerized Tomography (CT) scan as part of standard of care, confirming at least one solid organ abdominal injury. All subjects will have an abdominal ultrasound without contrast, followed by a contrast-enhanced ultrasound using the contrast agent Lumason. Ultrasound and contrast-enhanced ultrasound results will be compared to the CT scan results. The study procedures will take place within 48 hours of injury.

NCT ID: NCT03137732 Not yet recruiting - Pain, Postoperative Clinical Trials

Surgical Versus Anaesthetic Placement of Rectus Sheath Catheters

SPARC
Start date: June 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This is a single centred randomized controlled trial comparing surgeon versus anaesthetist inserted rectus sheath catheters for management of analgesia post major abdominal surgery.

NCT ID: NCT03109483 Recruiting - Stroke Clinical Trials

Effectiveness of the Geriatric Activation Program Pellenberg (GAPP) on the Geriatric Rehabilitation Ward

Start date: March 17, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The aim of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of our developed week-treatment program GAPP, on strength, balance, speed, functionality and cognition, with the main goal to achieve a better independence for activities of daily living (ADL). Each day of the week an exercise program of 45 minutes is given assigned to a specific aspect of the rehabilitation; strength, balance, speed, functional training and one day is for testing or group therapy. Participants will be followed for four weeks, with testing on day one, after two weeks and at the last day of the four-week program.

NCT ID: NCT02952976 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Abdominal Compartment Syndrome

Study of Primary Fascial Closure Rate in Patients With Open Abdomen Treated With Abthera Versus Barker Technique

Start date: July 1, 2017
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

This study is being done to compare two different Temporary Abdominal Closure methods that could be used in cases like yours. The methods being compared are the Barker's vacuum packing technique (BVPT) and the Open Abdomen Negative Pressure Therapy System (ABThera).

NCT ID: NCT02831556 Recruiting - Pregnancy Clinical Trials

Point of Care 3D Ultrasound for Various Applications: A Pilot Study

Start date: July 2016
Phase:
Study type: Observational

Summary 1. Purpose and Objective: The purpose of this study is to test the feasibility of rapid acquisition of point of care 3D ultrasound in obtaining abdominal and/or pelvic images. The study will use a newly developed acquisition method and post-processing technique to create three dimensional image models of the abdomen and/or pelvis. 2. Study activities and population group. The study population will be a convenience sample of patients of any age presenting to the Emergency Department with complaints necessitating a clinical abdominal and/or pelvic imaging. The study intervention includes acquisition of research ultrasound images, which will not be used for clinical care, and comparison of these images with clinically obtained images. Other clinical data such as surgical and pathology reports will also be reviewed. 3.Data analysis and risk/safety issues. This is a pilot study intended to determine feasibility and to refine image reconstruction algorithms. Research images will be compared to clinical images. Comparison of research images with final diagnosis will also occur. The research intervention, an ultrasound exam, has no known safety risks. The only risk to subjects is loss of confidentiality. This study is observational, not interventional, because the experimental ultrasound will be performed in all subjects and will not be used in the clinical care of patients (consequently, will not have the opportunity to affect clinical outcomes). Experimental images will be reviewed after completion of clinical care and will not be provided to the clinicians caring for the subjects. The investigators are not measuring the effect of the ultrasound examination on the subjects' outcomes.
