Aim of the study is to evaluate clinical and radiographic outcomes in patients undergone all-arthroscopic autologous matrix induced chondrogenesis for symptomatic osteochondral talar lesions
Plantar fasciitis is seen common in clinics and responsible from most of foot related pain problems. There are many treatment modalities in the literature as well as there is no golden standard to treat plantar fasciitis in non-surgical ways. The aim of this study is to compare intensive physiotherapy program, home based exercise program and control group decide the most effective rehabilitation program in plantar fasciitis.
The purpose of this trial is to explore if a novel vagal neuromodulation approach provides analgesic benefit through central mechanisms in patients with chronic pancreatitis
Tramadol is a grade II analgesics as World Health Organization definition. It can both be an agonist on mu receptors, which provides it a low opioid action, and also be a Serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor, which act on neuropathic pain. Tramadol is metabolized by P450 2D6 cytochrome (CYP2D6) in O-desmethyltramadol (O-dt) which is the most active form on the pharmacologic side (analgesic effect 2 to 4 times more powerful than tramadol itself). In caucasian population, 5 to 10% of patients are genetically qualified as "poor metabolizer phenotype"; this status is correlated to a lower analgesic efficiency compared to "rapid metabolizer". A multicenter study, CYTRAM, is under publication and allowed measurement of blood ratio O-dT/tramadol as a way to know the phenotype of CYP2D6 to detect "poor metabolizer phenotype" status. Indeed, blood ratio O-dT/tramadol threshold under 0.1 detects " poor metabolizer phenotype " status for postoperative patients treated by tramadol, with a good sensibility (87,5%) and specificity (83.8%). Which impacts for current practice? The next step is to know if this blood ratio is linked to an analgesic efficiency and a good tolerance for tramadol. A "poor metabolizer phenotype" patient would have no benefit of tramadol posology increasing. Therefore, phenotype detection, thank to blood ratio, could allow to switch quickly tramadol to another analgesic treatment for "poor metabolizer phenotype" patients. The main objective of the study is to forge a link between O-dT/tramadol ratio and analgesic efficiency. Secondary objectives investigate side effects and frequency related to O-dT/tramadol ratio and pain relief, and also impact of CYP2D6 - inhibitor treatments on the blood ratio. If there is a correlation between this blood ratio and treatment efficiency and tolerance, O-dT/tramadol ratio's detection will allow a better adaptation for some treatments metabolized by CYP2D6. Therefore, this evolution will contribute to health quality and health safety improvement.
Background: Complementary Spiritist Therapy (ECT) based on a range of therapeutic resources including prayer, spiritist "passe", fluidotherapy (fluidic water or magnetized water), spirit education. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of ECT in individuals at UFTM Hospital de Clínicas. Methods: Randomized controlled trial, patients were randomly. Patients will then be allocated into groups: - The group submitted to ECT (prayer, spiritual education, spiritist "passe" and fluidized water or prayer or spiritist "passe" or laying on of hands with intent to heal or laying on of hands with intent to heal or fluidized water or no-fluidized water or Control group (CG) will not be submitted to any intervention.
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the analgesic efficacy of DEX-IN compared with placebo and active control (fentanyl), in subjects undergoing painful outpatient and office based procedures.
Pain after thoracotomy is very severe and may cause pulmonary complications. Thoracic epidural analgesia has greatly decreased the pain experience and its consequences. However, new ways of decreasing post-operative opioid drugs consumption is an important issue of research. We aim to evaluate the effect of adding epidural magnesium sulfate to bupivacaine and morphine on pain control and the amount of opioid consumption after thoracotomy. Eighty patients undergoing thoracotomy at a tertiary cardiothoracic referral center will be enrolled in a randomized double blind trial. Patients randomly will be allocated in two groups. Bupivacaine (12.5 mg) plus morphine (2 mg) will be administered epidurally for all patients at the end of operation. Patients in group I will be received epidural magnesium sulfate (50 mg) and patients in Group II will be received normal saline as an adjuvant. Visual analog scale (VAS) score and the amount of morphine consumption will be measured during 24 hours post-operation.
This study evaluates the effect of percutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (PENS) and transcutaneous nerve stimulation (TENS) for pain relieving in patients with liver cancer. Patients will randomly allocated into PENS group, Tens group and control group.
This is a controlled trial to evaluate the efficacy of an Sequential Contraction Compression Device (SCCD) on the symptomatology of Painful Diabetic Neuropathy. Subjects will be divided into a control group where they will be monitored while continuing with their current treatment regimen and into a treatment group where they will continue with their current regimen and have SCCD therapy added. Subjects will be evaluated for Subjective Pain levels, quality of life, breakthrough drug use, sleep levels, and objectively with a Quantitative Sensory Testing device. The trial duration is 30 days.
This study evaluates the effect of percutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (PENS) and transcutaneous nerve stimulation (TENS) for pain relieving in patients with pancreatic cancer. Patients will randomly allocated into PENS group, Tens group and control group.
