There are about 2941 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.
The aim of the study was to determine upper extremity selective motor control (SMC) in Children with Unilateral Cerebral Palsy (CP). It was also aimed to determine the relationship between upper extremity SMC and upper extremity functions in unilateral CP.
With Leap Motion Controller, virtual reality exercises have been implemented more often since 2014, and this technology has benefited more from upper extremity rehabilitation In literature, there are no publications investigating the effectiveness of virtual reality applications on upper extremity functions in cases of mental retardation with Leap Motion. We think that virtual reality applications with Leap Motion are effective in fine motor skills and grip strength in cases of mental retardation. The purpose of our work; To Investigation of the Effectiveness of Video Based Games on Upper Extremity Functions in Mild Mental Retardation Diagnosed Cases
This study evaluates the efficacy of Wet cupping Therapy on oxidative stress and antioxidant capacity of the body.The healthy volunteers will receive wet cupping application and their initial venous blood samples and samples after the treatment will be evaluated for oxidative stress.
This study evaluates the overtreatment and deintensification rates of antidiabetic and antihypertensive medications in patients with diabetes mellitus in Turkey.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic-progressive and neurodegenerative disease. Thus, exercise programs are needed to maintain and increase functional status of persons with MS (pwMS). Pilates exercises designed by physiotherapist can enhance participation and functionality in pwMS. The aim is to investigate the effects of a clinical Pilates training on balance, walking, fall risk, respiratory and cognitive functions in pwMS. Forty-two pwMS will be included in this randomized controlled trial. Participants will be divided into two groups with stratified randomization. Pilates exercises group (n=21) will receive therapy once a week for 8 weeks plus home exercise programme. The home exercise program group (n = 21) will be given written exercises that matched the aims of the Pilates exercises and the program compliance will be monitored by telephone calls once a week. The assessments will be done twice at the beginning and at the end of the treatment. The outcome measures include the Timed 25-Foot Walk (T25FW), Six-Minute Walk Test (6MWT), Timed Up and Go (TUG), TUG cognitive and manual forms, 12-Item Multiple Sclerosis Walking Scale (MSWS-12), Curl-Up Test (CUT), Falls Efficacy Scale-International (FES-I), Activities-specific Balance Confidence (ABC) Scale, respiratory muscle strength assessment, Brief International Cognitive Assessment for MS (BICAMS).
Investigators aimed to compare the ease of use of the LMA protector and I-gel LMA for tracheal intubation with the Aintree catheter in our study. Laryngeal mask airway (LMA) protector is the second generation perilaryngeal seal type supraglottic airway tool. The I-gel LMA is the second generation uncuffed supraglottic airway device. The Aintree Intubation Catheter has been designed for assisted fiberoptic intubation and for uncomplicated, atraumatic endotracheal tube exchange.Both LMA types have a structure that permits endotracheal intubation. In cases of difficult intubation, these two LMA types can be used. In the literature, there is no study comparing these two LMA types using Aintree catheter.Difficult Airway Society (DAS) published a guide for tracheal intubation in 2011 using Aintree. According to this guide, LMA type LMA Supreme is the most unfavorable for this process. However, there is no research or recommendation on the type of LMA most suitable for use in the literature. In accordance with the data of this study, it will be tried to show which LMA type may be suitable for intubation with Aintree catheter in patients.
Oxidative stress at the cellular level and the effects of the antioxidant system on the anesthetic drugs make the anesthesia method more important. Hypotensive anesthesia or controlled hypotension is an anesthetic technique routinely used in many operations (ENT, orthopedic, plastic surgery, etc.) to reduce intraoperative bleeding and to provide a more open surgical area. In this study, investigators aimed to investigate the effects of hypotensive anesthesia on thiol / disulfide balance from oxidative stress markers. Hypotensive anesthesia is caused by hypoperfusion and hypoxia-induced oxidative stresses at the tissue level and can initiate cell damage. Many methods can be used alone or in combination to create hypotensive anesthesia. İnvestigators will investigate whether hypotensive anesthesia causes an effect on the cellular level.
It is well-known that not only peripheral muscles, but also respiratory muscles muscle weakness and deconditioning play an important role in low exercise capacity of patients with HF. Exercise training has been shown to improve exercise tolerance and quality of life in patients with heart disease. However, hearth failure patients with pacemaker such as implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs), cardiac resynchronization pacemakers or defibrillators (CRT-P or CDT-D) have additional specific issues when performing exercise. No study investigated the effects of different inspiratory muscle training protocols. For this reason, we aimed to investigate the effects of inspiratory muscle training on outcomes in hearth failure patients with pacemaker
Gait disorder, imbalance, and fatigue are the most frequently reported complaints in Multiple Sclerosis (MS), a chronic neurodegenerative disease. The first symptoms in patients with MS are emerging in the age range 20-50 and these patients need long-term rehabilitation. The virtual reality applications developed for these problems which affect the quality of life negatively and cause disability in the following periods may be a good alternative for conventional rehabilitation applications. In this long-term where motivation is important, virtual reality applications in different environments provide patients with the opportunity to do many different tasks amused. In recent years, the vividness has been increased by the 3D virtual reality headsets. The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of immersive virtual reality on the balance, mobility, and fatigue in patients with MS.
The investigators will use two types of material(PRF-Xenograft) in the buccal gap after immediate dental implant placement. The study design has three groups PRF, graft, and control group. The patients will randomly be assigned to groups by envelop method. The resonance frequency analysis device(Osstell) will be used to measure primary and secondary stabilization. Then the investigators will evaluate each materials' contribution to stability.
