There are about 606 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Saudi Arabia. The country of the clinical trial is determined by the location of where the clinical research is being studied. Most studies are often held in multiple locations & countries.
Myofascial pain syndrome thought to be the main cause of neck pain and shoulder muscle tenderness in the working population is characterized by myofascial trigger points (MTrPs). This study aimed to examine the immediate and short-term effect of the combination of two therapeutic techniques for improving neck pain and muscle tenderness in patients with upper trapezius Myofascial Trigger points.
A Clinical Trial Study to investigate the potential performance of BTXA on masseter muscle on patient with nocturnal bruxism and to check the pain scale and share this clinical experience.
The Healing effects of Honey and Hydrogel Products on the Diabetic Foot. Abstract: Diabetes mellitus epidemiology is increasing dramatically affecting high numbers of the world's population, one of the highest risk consequences is diabetic foot and which might lead to leg amputation causing a permanent disability for the patient. Several studies had been conducted on the options available to treat diabetic foot ulcer, Honey products and Hydrogel stands out as an effective topical treatment for the foot ulceration. This study discusses the effectivity rate of these products and compares it with the classical methods followed to treat DF using topical and systematic antibiotics. Hence; our research raises the following questions: 1. What is the effect of Honey and Hydrogel on the foot anatomy and physiology of DF patients? 2. Could the investigators introduce a new protocol to treat DF using Honey and Hydrogel products? Aiming to achieve the following objects: 1. To provide a new protocol to improve the anatomy and physiology of DF. 2. To compare the efficacy of combined Hydrogel and Honey products on the diabetic foot ulcer. Reaching there the investigators are expecting to: 1. To compare the healing time between the patients treated with hydrogel/honey products and the control treatment patients. 2. To compare Lab parameters improvements between the patients treated with hydrogel/honey products and the control treatment patients. 3. To compare neurological improvements between the patients treated with hydrogel/honey products and the control treatment patients. 4. To compare the anatomical improvements between the patients treated with hydrogel/honey products and the control treatment patients. In order to provide a clear estimation for the safety and effectivity profile for each treatment method. Based on that the investigators are conducting using single blinded randomized clinical trial Suggesting the following Hypothesis: Treatment using topical MediHoney gel and/or Hydrogel together separately in association with empiric antibiotic regimens have a higher success rate comparing with treatment using topical and empiric antibiotic. A total of 140 DM patients from Outpatients DM type 2 will be included in this study, following up at diabetic foot center Al-Qaseem Saudi Arabia. Patients will be divided into 4 groups: 1. st group will be treated with topical Medihoney product and empiric antibiotic. 2. nd group will be treated with topical Hydrogel (purloin) gel and empiric antibiotic. 3. rd group will be treated with a combination of Medihoney gel and Hydrogel (purloin) gel and empiric antibiotic. The 4th group will be treated with a combination of systematic and topical fucidin 1% antibiotic this group will be a controlled group. Based on the expected results the investigators are estimating that this study will raise the awareness of both health care personnel and the diabetic patients about this condition. It is expected to provide a clear efficacy estimation for each treatment method followed, facilitating the choice of treatment for physicians.
The introduction of videolaryngoscopy constituted a revolution in airway management since it could provide better laryngeal exposure (indirect) in situations of difficult or impossible visualization by direct laryngoscopy. The use of Videolaryngoscopes, however, does not always guarantee adequate exposure or end up always in successful tracheal intubation. Failed tracheal intubation with videolaryngoscopy has been reported. We hypothesized that may be the failure was due to omitting some preparatory steps, including optimal head positioning, leading to a less than expected exposure and/or difficult or impossible intubation. There are no recommendations currently from the scientific organizations regarding the optimal head position when using a GlideScope and it is unknown currently whether head position can affect visualization or tracheal intubation attempts when using this device.
This is a pre-post implementation cohort study. This is a data driven quality improvement project which aims to improve the care of mechanically ventilated patients through the implementation of a bundle of evidence based practices, with a goal of reducing ventilator associated events and mortality.
The study aims to compare the efficacy of the use of different methods of teeth cleaning on the oral hygiene in patients with orthodontic fixed appliance
To compare the effectiveness of the community mobile outreach approach in improving treatment outcomes (success rate) among tuberculosis patients with those being treated with facility based directly observed treatment short course (DOTS) in Jeddah region.
The purpose of the study is to collect information on how Tresiba® works in real world patients. Patients will get Tresiba® as prescribed to them by their study doctor. The study will last for about 6 to 8 months. Patients will be asked questions about their health and diabetes treatment as part of their normal study doctor's appointment.
This study aimed to assess and compare the clinical and radiographic success rates of LLLT and FC for pulpotomy in human primary teeth. One hundred and six primary molars from 36 children aging five to eight years were included and randomly assigned into two equal groups; LLLT group and FC group. Teeth were evaluated clinically and radiographically at 3, 6 and 12 months.
The objective of this clinical study was to prospectively compare the clinical and radiographic success rates of BiodentineTM pulpotomies versus formocresol pulpotomies in children vital primary molars. A randomized, split-mouth study design was used with a sample of 37 healthy children aged 4- to 8-year-old. A total of 56 pairs (112 teeth) of carious primary teeth, 1 pair per child, were selected for treatment. One tooth from each pair was randomly assigned to either the BiodentineTM pulpotomy group or the formocresol pulpotomy group. Children were followed-up at 3, 6 and 12 months for clinical evaluation and at 6 and 12 months for radiographic evaluation. Data were collected, tabulated and analyzed using Fisher exact and McNemar tests. The level of significance was set at P < 0.05.
