All patients scheduled for lumbar spine surgery due to discogenic low back pain and/or sciatica, will be screened by the principal investigator for presence of inclusion/exclusion criteria. Their baseline neurological function before surgery will be assessed and recorded for recruitment into one of the three study groups. MRI scans will be assessed for the calculation of disc protrusion size. Experimental sensory and pain assessments and questionnaires will be performed at list 24 hours before surgery. Blood sample for pro-inflammatory mediator will be obtained at the same time as the experimental sensory and pain tests. Pre-operative pain and MPQ will be assessed pre-operatively (back and leg pain separately), and again on day 30 after surgery. Blood tests for ESR, CRP will be drawn before surgery, during the surgery, and on 30 after surgery. During surgery, intervertebral disc material will be harvested and divided into 4 specimens for culture and inflammatory mediator analysis. Repeat neurological assessment will be performed 30 after surgery.
Para-athletes are submitted and intense efforts in training and competitions that often overlap in days and weeks. In this sense, and in the search for better brands and indexes, it is necessary to use recovery methods that allow less late muscle pain and better physical performance. Recovery methods are widely used in athletes of various modalities, however there are no studies that point out their effects on para-athletes. This highlights the need for studies on this topic. Paragliding athletes, who train at the Londrina Yacht Club, Londrina Canoeing and Rowing School, who present paraplegia after spinal cord injury, with motor level T10 or lower, without any problem of thermoregulation will participate in the study. All were male and female, with no complaints of musculoskeletal pain or history of upper limb muscle injuries in the last six months and with the same demand for training and competitions. Initially an evaluation will be performed where 1RM, VO2 max, pain, spasticity, body temperature, heart rate variability and electromyographic signal of the involved muscles will be tested. After three days they will be induced to fatigue through a protocol in the traction exercise and immediately directed to one of the 3 intervention groups: ice pack, immersion in cold water or rest. The same baseline evaluations will be repeated after 24, 48 and 72 hours. It is expected that the group submitted to immersion in cold water presents better parameters for pain and sports performance.
- Purpose The general purpose of this project is to assess the utility of the mCare application and MHCE (Mobile Healthcare Environment) system - a secure, mobile, smartphone app based platform - for same day surgery postoperative follow up of patients receiving peripheral nerve blocks. - Research Design Randomized open-label study, comparing the satisfaction of the two groups with the method of follow up, which is either over the phone or via a mCare application. A separate group made up of nurses and physicians will have the opportunity to take a short anonymous survey to rank their opinion on the use of the smartphone application for patient feedback.
This is an interventional, first-in-man study, double-blind, placebo-controlled, two-part, ascending doses study to investigate the safety, tolerability and efficacy of STR-324 infusions in healthy volunteers.
Objective: The study aimed to assess the effect of topical application of an amino acid + sodium hyaluronate acid gel after lower third molar extraction. Study design: 136 patients requiring lower third molar extraction were enrolled. An amino acid + sodium hyaluronate acid (HA) gel was applied to the sockets of the patients in the treatment group immediately following extraction; the sockets of the controls were simply flushed with a sterile saline solution. 7 and 14 days after surgery, patients' outcomes and postoperative complications were evaluated. Cumulative incidence of dehiscence and secondary outcome measures were analyzed using a chi-square test.
The purpose of this study is to characterize the pharmacokinetic (PK) and safety profile of anesthetics and analgesics in children and adolescents.
To evaluate the relative bioavailability of naproxen sodium/diphenhydramine hydrochloride (DHP HCL) 220/25 mg soft capsules (Test) versus naproxen sodium/DPH HCl 220/25 mg tablets (Reference) after a single oral administration (2 x naproxen sodium 220 mg and DPH HCl 25 mg combination product) under fed conditions in healthy adult subjects. To assess the safety and tolerability of the investigational products in terms of adverse events (AEs) and clinical parameters (systolic/diastolic blood pressure, pulse rate, physical examination, clinical and laboratory testing).
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the postoperative pain and discomfort using flurbiprofen axetil or nalbuphine administration after oculoplastic surgery under general anesthesia.
Study Title Subject-reported treatment efficacy and procedure satisfaction (steps) study.BURST study- a prospective observational clinical study examining the changes in quality of life and pain following spinal cord stimulation for the treatment of chronic intractable lower back and lower limb pain.
This study investigates the impact of pain training delivery for respite care providers who support children with developmental disabilities on (a) pain assessment and management-related knowledge, (b) participant self-rated perceptions of the feasibility, confidence and skill in pain assessment and management, and (c) strategy use. Half of the participants will receive the pain training, while half will receive the training about family-centered care, and be offered the pain training after completion of the follow-up.
