The aim of this study is to clarify complications of Ethanolamine Oleate intralesional injections of maxillofacial venous formations in pediatric patients
In this study, we investigate the safety and efficacy of topical sirolimus in the treatment of superficial complicated vascular anomolies.
Multi-center, prospective, non-randomized study to evaluate Symphony™ Posterior Cervical System in the setting of surgical treatment of adult cervical deformity.
The aim of our study is to produce gradual correction of FKFD in younger children.
Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a well-studied technique that has been shown to improve recovery time and reduce pain and swelling in patients undergoing surgery, including orthognathic surgery, and has no known negative effects. This study will use two groups with patients randomly assigned to either the study group, receiving LLLT, or one receiving a placebo treatment, after they have lower jaw surgery. Measurements will be taken at 24 hours, 1 week, 2 week, 3 week, 4 week, 5 week, and 6 week post-op exams to check pain, swelling and nerve function, and the two groups will be compared to see if the LLLT group has any difference
This is a cross-sectional observational study with the aim to assess longterm outcomes in a large cohort of individuals with anorectal malformations. Patients managed for anorectal malformations at Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden, Stockholm 1994-2017 will be reviewed and they will be invited to respond to validated questionnaires evaluating bowel function (>4 years of age), urinary tract function (>4 years of age), sexual function (>18 years of age) and quality of life (>8 years of age). Data will be analyzed with descriptive and comparative statistics.
This study aims to develop a new instrument capable of providing an efficient measure of the quality of life of parents of conservatively treated patients with spinal deformity. The development of a questionnaire in a Rasch environment and specifically developed for parents of conservatively treated patients will ensure greater sensitivity and specificity of the questionnaire.
MARS is an artificial intelligence-powered system that aims at detecting common fetal anomalies during real-time obstetrics ultrasound. The current study comprises 2 stages: (1) The stage of model creation which will include retrospective collection of images from fetal anatomy scans with known diagnoses to train these model and test their diagnostic accuracy. (2) The stage of model validation through prospective application of this model to collected videos with known normal and abnormal diagnoses
A total of 620 children will be enrolled in this study from six sites in sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and Latin America. Half of the children's mothers will have taken aspirin and half will have taken placebo. This will allow the researchers to compare results of the two groups of children and determine if children exposed antenatally to low dose aspirin will have scores on the Bayley Scales of Infant Development-III (BSID-III) examination at 36 months of life (+/-3months) that are not inferior to the child's peers who were not exposed (i.e., by no more than a margin of 4 points).
Pectus excavatum (PE) and pectus carinatum (PC) are the most frequent chest wall deformities in humans. They are usually clinically recognized in early childhood or adolescence, with aggravation during the pubertal growth spurt. PE is a depression of the anterior chest wall, most frequently involving the lower sternum. In this study we use simultaneously compared chest CT, MRI, and 3D scanning fro both PE and PC assessment . The aim of this study is to compare a standard protocol using chest CT to a non-irradiant protocol with 3D scanning and MRI. The primary endpoint was to assess the inter observer concordance and the correlation between the HI (Haller Index) evaluated with MRI and the EHI (External Haller index) evaluated with 3D scanning. The secondary endpoints were to assess the concordance with chest CT the variation of the HI evaluated in inspiration and expiration with MRI and also the correction index (CI) between chest CT and MRI in the PE group, .
