There are about 282 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Tunisia. 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.
Patients were randomly divided into two groups: ultrasound-guided (US-guided) out-of-plane internal jugular vein (OOP-IJV) and in-plane supraclavicular subclavian vein (IP-SSV) catheterization. For OOP-IJV cannulation, the transducer was placed to identify IJV in short-axis view. The needle was introduced at an angle of 60° to the skin surface, and advanced under real-time US guidance until visualizing the tip of the needle inside the vein. For IP-SSV cannulation, a short-axis view of the IJV was obtained first. The probe was slid caudally following the IJV until getting the best long-axis view of the SCV. Using an in-plane approach, the needle was inserted at the base of the transducer at a 30° angle and advanced under the long axis under real-time US guidance targeting the SCV.
The Tunisian society of family medicine STMF proposes to coordinate a national, observational, transversal and multicenter survey, at the consultations of general medicine / family medicine.
Spondyloarthritis is a chronic rheumatic disease that requires prolonged radiographic follow-up. This repetitive exposure to ionizing radiation puts at risk the radiosensitive organs exposed in the field of irradiation. A new low-dose imaging system has emerged. This technique, called EOS, offers the advantage of lower irradiation associated with high images quality. Our goal through this work was to evaluate the reliability of the EOS imaging system compared to conventional radiography in the evaluation of the structural damage of SpA.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is widely spread all over the world. It is predicted to be the third leading cause of death by 2020. COPD is a common, preventable treatable disease that is characterized by an airflow limitation which is not fully reversable.
The performance of STIs and clinical scores alone and their combination to predict short term prognosis of acute decompensated heart failure.
Efficacy of T2769 in DED
Heart failure (HF) is the leading cause of hospitalization ,rehospitalization and mortality for adults over 65 years of age. This study aimed to assess mortality, and hospitalization rates at 30 days and one year after dicharge of patients with heart failure (HF) with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) compared to HF with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF).
Prospective, observational, monocentric, non-interventional study.
ATERA Survey is a national cross sectional observational study, aiming to determine the prevalence of dyslipidemia and other conventional risk factors for CHD (Coronary Heart Disease), the relationship between environmental and lifestyle factors with dyslipidemia, the perception and the knowledge of cardiovascular risk factors by the population, and above all, to strengthen the national strategy for primary and secondary prevention against coronary heart disease.
