There are about 6097 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Egypt. 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.
Pesplanus, commonly known as 'flatfoot,' is a common pathomechanical condition characterized by a lowered medial longitudinal arch (MLA) and exaggerated pronation. There are two general types of flatfoot : flexible flatfoot and rigid flatfoot Flexible flatfoot is the most common form of flat foot. In adult population, it was reported that prevalence of flexible flatfeet is 13.6%. It has been proved that there is static and dynamic balance deficit in the participants with flatfeet. The extrinsic muscles as posterior tibialis (TP) ) and intrinsic muscles as abductor hallucis (AbdH) act as active subsystem support for the MLA during weight-bearing, standing, and walking. Abnormal alignment of the foot may cause stretch weakness of the foot muscles by elongating beyond the neutral physiological resting position. leading to musculoskeletal dysfunction and overuse injuries. Insoles can assist in maintaining normal alignment of the foot, improve balance as it supports MLA which is essential to stabilize postural sway, they widen the contact surface of the sole of the foot improving stability.
The aim of this study is to compare the effect of epidural analgesia versus low-dose spinal analgesia in parturient in the late first stage of labor regarding time needed to perform the block, duration of the intra- and postoperative analgesia and incidence of procedure related adverse events.
To compare visual and refractive measurements of intrastromal corneal ring segments versus toric phakic posterior intra-ocular lenses implantation in keratoconus
Study aiming at determining the efficacy of eccentric versus concentric exercises for improving tendon biological characteristics, pain, and shoulder overall function for rotator cuff tendinopathy in patients with Rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Moreover, investigation the relationship between RA activity and the severity of rotator cuff tendinopathy. Patients will be randomly assigned into either concentric or eccentric exercise group. Randomizations will be done using computer random generated numbers.
This study will be performed to evaluate patients'satisfaction and aesthetic outcomes of single implant restorations in aesthetic zone by using superimposition of intra-oral scan and CBCT.
Aim of the study The aim of the study is to evaluate the role of pulsed radiofrequency versus platelet rich plasma injection in treatment of idiopathic mild to moderate carpal tunnel syndrome Patients will be classified into three equal groups using randomized closed envelop method into three groups. Control Group ( n=25):Patients will receive median nerve perineural injection of bupivacaine with mehylprednisilone under ultrasound guidance. PRF Group ( n=25):Patients will receive median nerve pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) and median nerve perineural injection of bupivacaine under ultrasound guidance PRP Group (n=25): Patients will receive median nerve perineural injection of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) under ultrasound guidance Measurements (will be done before the procedure, one week ,two month and four months after procedure except SNCV and serum CRP and TNF α will be done before the procedure and after four months only): 1. VAS 2. BCTQ 3. Degree of paresthesia tested by Reverse Phalen's test. 4. CSA of the median nerve will be measured by the same pain therapist involved in the study. 5. SNCV: performed by same physiotherapist not involved in the study before and after intervention. 6. Serum Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF α). 7. C-reactive protein (CRP) 8. Complications will be recorded and managed. Items 1,2 and 3 will be measured by a pain therapist not involved in this study
The objective of this study was to assess the efficacy of erenumab on frequency of monthly migraine days in adults at baseline, 3 months and 6 months, disability in patients with chronic migraine and on post covid migraine severity
This study was conducted for clinical evaluation of the quality of different minimal-invasive treatment modalities and combination treatments in esthetics improvement of mild to moderate fluorosed teeth using two different evaluation methods. One hundred and sixty fluorosed teeth were included in this study. Prior to the interventions, pre-operative photographs were taken as baseline records. After that teeth were randomly allocated in eight treatment protocols with twenty teeth (n=20) included in each protocol. Protocol one (P1) Opalescence™ boost™ PF 40%. Protocol two (P2) Opalustre™. Protocol three (P3) MI-Paste Plus®. In protocol four (P4) teeth were treated with Opalustre™ followed by Opalescence™ boost™ PF 40%. In protocol five (P5) Opalescence™ boost™ PF 40% was applied followed by MI-Paste Plus®, while in protocol six (P6) Opalustre™ was applied followed by MI-Paste Plus®. Whereas protocol seven (P7) teeth were treated with Opalustre™ followed by Opalescence™ boost™ PF 40% and lastly MI-Paste Plus®. Protocol eight (P8) control. All teeth were evaluated immediately after treatment (T1), after 14 days (T2), after 3 months (T3) and after 6 months (T4). They were rated for "improvement in appearance" and "change in white/brown opaque areas" using VAS through two blinded evaluators by comparing photographs of each follow-up time point with baseline. "Patient satisfaction", "tooth sensitivity" and "requirements for further treatments" were recorded by the participant.
The investigators included all patients who were developed acute perforated peptic ulcer manifestations and were admitted to our hospital between December 2019 to August 2021. The study was approved by the research and Ethics committee of our university and performed in accordance with the code of ethics of the world medical association (Declaration of Helsinki) for studies involving humans. A written informed consent was obtained from all participants. The sample size was calculated using open Epi program using the following data ; confidence interval 95% , power of test 80% , ratio of unexposed/exposed 1, percent of patients with successful management of acute perforated peptic ulcer by surgical intervention 90% and those with successful management by endoscopy 99% , odds ratio 99%, and risk ratio 2 , so the calculated sample size equal 100 patients divided into two equal groups. Group (1) included 50 patients managed by combined endoscopic & radiologic intervention , group (2) included 50 patients managed by surgery.
