There are about 270 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in United Arab Emirates. 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 this study is to determine the minimal effective ropivacaine concentration required to provide adequate analgesic femoral nerve block in 90% of patients (MEAC90)
This study aim to calculate the minimal effective ropivacaine concentration required achieve successful analgesic interscalene block in 90% of patients (MEAC90)
This study aims to characterize the clinical management and outcomes of participants diagnosed with anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK)-positive advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who are being treated with alectinib in real-world clinical practice.
Background: The STONE score has traditionally been used as a clinical prediction tool to predict the presence of ureteric stones in patients presenting with renal colic. More recently, the CHOKAI score was introduced and found to have superior diagnostic accuracy on both internal and external validation. Objective: Our study aims to externally validate and compare the use of both the CHOKAI and STONE score in a population of UAE patients presenting to the Emergency Department for renal colic. Methods: Over a period of approximately 6 months, the study will follow Emergency Department Physicians at each institution and retrieve data from their encounters with patients presenting with renal colic. Parameters for both CHOKAI and STONE scores will be logged, extracted and matched against a reference standard of CT scan to compare diagnostic accuracy of both scores to predict the presence of ureteric stones in this population. Goals: Evaluation of the findings will discern applicability of scores to the UAE population and contribute to reducing unnecessary radiation exposure. To our knowledge, no studies have compared the use of these scores to diagnose urolithiasis in the United Arab Emirates. Furthermore, this will be the first study to externally validate the CHOKAI score outside of Japan using a controlled, prospective design.
In cases refractory to initial root canal therapy in which a decision is made to perform nonsurgical retreatment, the patient has the right to know the prognosis of the proposed treatment and clinicians must be able to provide this information based on the best available data. The literature answered this question when the treatment was performed in multiple visits; however, little information exists when single visit root canal retreatment was performed. Therefore, the aim of the present study is to assess the clinical and radiographic outcome of root canal retreatment performed in single visits in endodontic clinics of Dubai Health Authority (DHA).
lower eyelid involutional entropion and dermatochalasis are common associated problems. combined approaches give good results.
Ap¬plications of CO2 insufflation for endoscopic procedures have been reported for the performance of routine colonoscopy, small bowel endoscopy, endoscopic retro¬grade cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and endoscopic submucosal dissection in the upper and lower gastrointestinal tracts. These studies showed that CO2 insufflation reduces the post-procedural abdominal distension and pain without CO2 retention and adverse events. However, there has been no report on the safety and efficacy of CO2 insufflation in PEG procedures in adults or in children. In the present study, we would like to evaluate by randomized controlled trial: the safety of the CO2 insufflation during PEG and the inhibi¬tory effects of CO2 insufflation on bowel distension after PEG.
the current study will try to answer the question: Is it theoretically possible, that increased longitudinal stress on nerve root from sliding or tensioning intervention may subtly affect the neural function? Our hypothesis is that tensioning and sliding, differently affect the neural function.
