There are about 193 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Cyprus. 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.
Today, the increase in the cost of health services, the development of technology and the shortening of the hospitalization period day by day due to the reasons for preventing complications such as hospital infections have increased the importance of discharge planning. Optimum maintenance of home care of patients who underwent surgery after discharge is possible with an effective discharge education given to the patient and their relatives and the preparation of the patients. In this study, it was aimed to examine the effect of the discharge training given to the patients who underwent Lumbar Disc Herniation Surgery with the method of feedback on their readiness for discharge and their satisfaction with the discharge training. Among the patient groups who were given and not trained by the teach-back method; H01. There is no difference between the scores of readiness for discharge. H02. There is no difference between discharge training satisfaction scores. H11: There is a difference between the scores of being ready for discharge. H12: There is a difference between discharge training satisfaction scores.
Background/purpose: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) has been defined as an innovative surgical method for the treatment of obesity and is progressively applied worldwide. However, data on result of sleeve gastrectomy regarding energy-protein status, nutrient deficiencies and body composition are limited. The purpose of this study is to search nutritional status, body composition and biochemical parameters following LSG. Methods: Obese subjects (N:55) scheduled for sleeve gastrectomy were included. Macro-micronutrient intake analysis, biochemical blood parameters, and anthropometric measures were performed before and 1, 3 and 6 months after LSG.
The aim of this study was investigate the effectiveness of Local Antibiotic Applications With Platelet Rich Fibrin on Third Molar Surgery Outcomes In Vivo and In Vitro. The study included a total of 60 patients with impacted mandibular third molar. Patients were evaluated in 3 randomly separated groups. For the first and second group, Platelets Rich Fibrin+ local antibiotics were applied into the tooth socket. For the first group, amoxicillin was applied and for the second group, clindamycin was applied. There was a control group which only Platelets Rich Fibrin was applied into the socket. The outcome variables were pain, swelling, the number of analgesics taken, and trismus. These variables were also assessed based on first, second, third, and seventh days following the operation.
The primary aim of this study is to examine the effects of in-bed rotation and early mobilization training given before abdominal surgery on mobility, pain and comfort of patients after surgery. The secondary aim of the study is to examine the effect of mobilization training given before abdominal surgery on the sleep of patients after surgery.
The aim of this study is to determine whether the effectiveness of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization technique is different from passive prone lying when performed with a functional exercise in individuals with chronic nonspecific low back pain.
There are limited but encouraging results supporting the use of dalfampridine in patients with hereditary spastic paraplegia. The investigators aimed to investigate the effects of dalfampridine on walking speed, muscle length, spasticity, functional strength, and functional mobility in patients with hereditary spastic paraplegia. In this triple-blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled trial, 4 patients with hereditary spastic paraplegia received dalfampridine (10 mg twice daily) plus physiotherapy (2 times per week), and 4 patients received placebo plus physiotherapy for a total duration of 8 weeks. The assessor and treating physiotherapists, and patients were masked to the group allocation. The primary outcome was Timed 25-foot Walk Test at the end of the 8-week treatment. The secondary outcome measures were functional mobility, functional muscle strength, muscle length, and spasticity.
The treatment of cancer as a multidimensional disease has improved in recent years with the development of new chemotherapies, targeted biological therapies or radiation therapy protocols and have led to an overall improvement in the survival of oncology patients. These treatments often cause adverse effects on the skin, which can be accompanied by physical and mental suffering and have a significant impact on patients' quality of life. Improving the quality of life of patients is today a therapeutic challenge. The objective of this clinical study is to assess the tolerability of an innovative skin cosmetic product that will be developed specifically for use during curative anticancer treatments, as well as to study the impact on quality of life of skin side effects caused by the treatments.
Studies showing the relationship between meal frequency, weight loss and anthropometric measurements are contradictory. This study is planned and conducted to observe the effects of meal frequency (3 meals+3 snacks vs 3 meals) on weight loss, anthropometric measurements and body composition with 3-month energy restricted Medical Nutrition Therapy program in 19-64 years old women with a BMI ≥ 27 kg/m2.
The aim of this study is to examine the effects of core stabilization and PNF exercises on core muscle activation in obese children.In the study, the initial sample size was calculated as 66 people, under the assumptions that the comparisons between groups would be made with one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA), 3 groups would be included in the study, α= 0.05, β= 0.20 and the effect size would be f= 0.40. The study will be conducted on children between the ages of 10-13 who have a BMI value above the 95% percentile according to age and gender.After recording the sociodemographic information of the individuals, body composition, core muscle activation level, lumbar region muscle endurance, lumbar joint position sense, body image, static and dynamic balances, level of enjoyment of physical activity, physical activity level and pediatric quality of life scale before treatment, 8 weeks of treatment will be measured by the evaluator at the end of the 12-week follow-up period. The level of core muscle activation will be used as the primary outcome measure in the study.
increasing the prevalence of exercise models designed in accordance with the biopsychosocial model is very important in terms of ensuring the sustainability of these models with telerehabilitation in periods such as epidemics and pandemics. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of a biopsychosocial exercise model provided via telerehabilitation in individuals with rheumatic diseases during the COVID-19 pandemic.
