There are about 61 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Syrian Arab Republic. 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.
This experimental study will evaluate the effect of combined treatment with low-level laser and functional appliances (twin-block) on the correction of Class II malocclusion, compared with the control group treated with functional appliances (twin-block) only. The study sample will consist of 40 patients with Class II malocclusion. The sample will be allocated randomly into two groups: a control group and an experimental group. Functional appliance (twin-block) will be applied for all patients. Low-level laser will be applied for the experimental group only. The skeleto-dental changes occurring after functional treatment will be assessed using cephalometric radiographs; pre- and post- treatment changes for each group will be evaluated individually.
Is to determine if SDM laser can reduce macular thickness in non central CSME and stop the progression of non central CSME to central CSME in compare to glycemic control
This experimental study aims to evaluate the efficiency of the orthodontic removable traction appliance in the treatment of skeletal class III malocclusion. The study sample will consist of 44 patients with skeletal class III malocclusion. The sample will be allocated randomly into two groups: experimental group and control group. The dentoskeletal changes will be assessed by using lateral cephalometric radiographs before treatment and after obtaining 3mm positive overjet.
Determining the efficacy of low dose of PPI in management acute peptic ulcer bleeding
We aim to assess the treatment outcomes following upper incisors retraction accelerated by corticotomy procedure. So, we intend to randomize orthodontic patients with class II division I malocclusion into two groups: experimental group and control group. Both groups will start orthodontic treatment. Once a 0.019*0.025-inch stainless steel wire is fully engaged to the brackets, 1st premolars will be extracted. Canines will be retracted in the conventional manner. Then, the actual evaluation period starts when the upper incisors are retracted using two different methods.
68 healthy children from the Department of Pediatric Dentistry at Damascus University who require treatment for their primary maxillary second molars will be randomly assigned into one of two groups: experimental or control groups. In the experimental group, a lidocaine hydrochloride-epinephrine hydrochloride nasal spray will be applied to anesthetize upper second molar before the commencement of treatment. To assess the efficacy of this kind of anesthesia, a specific scale will be used by an external observer after capturing some video files of the performed treatment. To assess the safety of this procedure, vital signs will be recorded before and after treatment. Acceptance of the nasal spray will be recorded based on the child's behavior before and after treatment using Frankl scale. If anesthesia was not sufficient to proceed with the procedure, a rescue anesthesia would be used. Rescue anesthesia consists of an infiltration injection of lidocain hydrochloride 2% with epinephrine hydrochloride (1:100,000). In the control group, an intra-oral lidocaine-epinephrine injection will be applied due to treatment. Safety, efficacy and acceptance will be assessed in the same manner to what is performed in the experimental group.
10 ml of blood from each patient will be drawn. This blood specimen will be centrifuged in a specific way to get 1 ml of platelet rich plasma (PRP). PRP will be injected into the the skin under the eyes. The treatment course consists of three sessions of PRP injections with one-month intervals between the sessions.
This study aims to evaluate the clinical effect of CO2 laser on enamel resistance to white spot lesions formation around orthodontic brackets. 25 patients needing fixed orthodontic treatment will participate in the study, the CO2 laser will be applied in a split mouth design around orthodontic brackets in two contrast quarters of mouth in every patient and the other quarters will serve as a control. The white spot lesion formation will be monitored around the brackets during the orthodontic treatment after four and twelve weeks of irradiation with laser.
Femoral cervical fractures fixation with DHS plate throw 3 cm incision and minimum surgical trauma.
The purpose of this study is to determine if the injection of Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is effective in reducing alveolar bone loss that happens after each rapid maxillary expansion (RME) on the buccal aspect of the posterior teeth. 16 patients with a skeletal maxillary constriction aged between 10-16 years old will get into orthodontic treatment to widen the maxilla using Hyrax appliance. An amount of patient blood will be withdrawn and centrifuged to get PRP. Then the PRP will be injected in one half of each patient mouth in a split-mouth design, beneath the buccal periosteal of the first molars and first premolars, the halves will be chosen randomly. High resolution CBCT images will be taken before and after orthodontic treatment to analyze buccal bone thickness and height changes.
