There are about 3027 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Turkey. 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.
Investigators aimed to compare the results of rehabilitation with an exoskeleton device(Robogait) and with an end-effector device(Lokohelp)
The effects of Minimal Flow Anesthesia (0.4 l / min) and High Flow Anaesthesia (2 l / min) on tissue oxygen saturation (St02) and thiol / disulfide balance in hypotensive anesthesia operations will be investigated.
The aim of this study is to determine and compare serum cytokine levels of six different severe asthma inflammatory phenotypes differentiated by their atopy, peripheral eosinophilia and/or chronic rhinosinusitis and/or nasal polyposis status.
The aim of this study is to compare these three different recovery methods following a single bout high-intensity interval exercise program with each other in terms of blood lactate clearance, muscle flexibility, muscle strength and endurance.
Determination of which muscle is more spastic before injection of the botulinum toxin, and the application of the targeted treatment to that muscle results in more improvement in spasticity. It is known that the muscles that flex elbow in healthy individuals change according to forearm position. While the biceps brachii flexes the forearm in supination, the brachioradialis flexes the forearm in the neutral position. The brachialis muscle acts as a primary flexor muscle when the forearm is in pronation. In this study, hypothesis is that the severity of spasticity differs depending on the forearm position.
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a highly prevalent breathing disorder in sleep. We have aimed to evaluate the relationship between OSA and prolidase activity, the oxidative stress index (OSI), total antioxidative capacity (TAC), and total oxidative capacity (TOC) and the relationship between carotid intima media thickness (CIMT).
The investigators aimed to compare the home-based Pulmonary Rehabilitation with the hospital-based pulmonary rehabilitation in terms of pulmonary rehabilitation efficiency in patient with bronchiectasis.
Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is a diverse group of parenchymal lung disorders characterized by restrictive lung function and impaired alveolar diffusion capacity, leading to dyspnea on exertion, reduced exercise endurance, and poor quality of life. Patients usually complain of progressive breathlessness, persisting non-productive cough, which occurs with exercise. Hemoptysis, fever, chest pain are also seen. The most common comorbidity in chronic lung diseases is the progressive loss of exercise tolerance. Not only dyspnea, but also peripheral muscle dysfunction and cognitive deficits such as, anxiety and depression are responsible for the reduction of mobility in the patient. In the context of pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) program to be applied in interstitial lung diseases; upper and lower limb endurance, stretching and relaxation techniques, aerobic exercise training, respiratory muscle training, training of energy conservation methods, support by determining oxygen requirement, nutritional evaluation, prevention of weight and muscle loss, psycho-social support. The purpose of PR programs in this disease is; to improve muscle strength, endurance, and mechanical activity, to improve dyspnea sensation, to improve functional capacity, to inform and educate the patient about the patient's disease. The use of whole body vibration (TVT) is an increasingly common method of therapeutic use in order to improve neuromuscular performance. TVT applications have shown that increases muscle activity, muscle strength and muscle strength, improves lower extremity blood circulation and balance, and increases growth hormone production. TVT training effects have rarely been studied in patients with pulmonary disease. Muscle strength and performance enhancement were significant effects of TVT, which was emphasized as a promising exercise method for those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Over the past decade, endurance and strength training has been established as the most important components of exercise training programs in patients with COPD and ILD. Therefore, inclusion of TVT into exercise training programs in ILD patients may lead to beneficial results. The investigators hypotheses are: 1. the combination of home respiratory exercises with whole body vibration training may lead to more improved respiratory muscle strength, dyspnoea, functional capacity, balance, peripheral muscle strength and quality of life in ILD patients 2. when applied as an isolated intervention, home respiratory exercises programme may lead to lower results than combination programs.
In breast reduction surgery, pain control is usually performed with tumescent anesthesia, thoracic epidural anesthesia, intercostal nerve blocks and paravertebral block applications. Tumescent anesthesia is also preferred by plastic surgeons because of the varying risk of thoracic epidural anesthesia and paravertebral block applications. After the Erector spinae block was first described by Forero in 2016, it was reported to have been applied in many cases, including breast surgery. It is considered to be a safer block because of the presence of paravertebral block-like activity and the location where the needle is guided away from the pleura. The investigators aimed to compare postoperative analgesia consumption, pain scores and patient satisfaction of erector spine block with tumescent anesthesia in patients who underwent reduction mammoplasty operation under general anesthesia in this double-blind prospective randomized study.
Whether Subthalamic Nucleus (STN) Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS), a treatment commonly used to ameliorate the motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease (PD), affects on facial expressions is unclear. The purpose of this study was to investigate the potential effects of DBS and different frequencies on facial expressions of PD patients by volunteers via a web site: http://www.supporttoscience.com
