There are about 147 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Qatar. 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 present study is randomized in nature, comparing the stone free rate and complications rate between semi-rigid ureteroscopy (SR-URS) and Flexible Ureteroscopy (F-URS) for the treatment of Proximal Ureteric stone (PUS), whereby the preoperative assessments, procedure and reporting of outcomes will all be standardized.
COVID-19 infection has been widely spread since December 2019 and causing many comorbidities and fatalities. The most common clinical presentation of COVID-19 patients admitted to ICUs is respiratory failure , hypoxia and acute lung injury. While new therapies and vaccines are urgently being investigated, they may take an inordinate time to get to right people. Omega-3-oil has been shown to have less proinflammatory mediators that may have immunomodulating, anti-inflammatory and antiviral effect. Two main fatty acids in omega-3-oil including eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid have shown benefit in patients with ARDS as well. So, the investigators proposed a randomized controlled study to evaluate the effectiveness of omega-3-oil supplementation 2 gm PO/NGT/OGT twice daily for 28 days or till discharge or till death in COVID-19 critically ill patients admitted to ICU who require oxygen support.
Covid-19 is an important human and animal pathogen, it mostly causes respiratory and gastrointestinal symptoms. Clinical features range from a common cold to severe diseases such as severe acute respiratory distress syndrome, bronchitis, pneumonia, multi-organ failure, and even death. It seems to be less commonly affecting children and to cause fewer symptoms and less severe disease in this age group compared with adults. Clinicians have observed many extrapulmonary manifestations of COVID-19, as hematologic, cardiovascular, renal, gastrointestinal and hepatobiliary, endocrinologic, neurologic, ophthalmologic, and dermatologic systems can all be affected. This retrospective study that will be conducted at Hamad General Hospital in Qatar, aims to determine the renal involvement in all pediatric patients who were hospitalized with COVID-19 from March 1, 2020, to January 1, 2021.
This randomized clinical trial evaluated the recurrence rates of physiological gingival pigments during 24 months follow-up and the patient perceptions after the ablative depigmentation using two laser wavelengths; Diode 940 nm and Er,Cr:YSGG 2780 nm.
Introduction: osteonecrosis of the femoral head is a potentially crippling disorder, which mainly affects the young adults. Core decompression has been used for the treatment of the osteonecrosis of the femur head since was published by Ficat and albert, and by HUNGERFORD and Lennox. hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a suggestive joint preserving treatment for symptomatic prolapse stage of osteonecrosis of the femur head. Aims and objectives: to compare the clinical (functional) outcome of core decompression versus hyperbaric oxygen therapy in pre collapse stages of idiopathic avascular necrosis of the femur head. Material and methods: Mixed Retrospective and prospective study for all case of pre collapse of avascular necrosis of femoral head(AVNHF) underwent either hyperbaric oxygen therapy or Core decompression augmented with bone substitute in HAMAD General Hospital Anticipated outcome: Hyperbaric oxygen treatment associated with better outcomes at preserving the joint and associated with less complications than surgery
Urinary tract infection (UTI) is the most frequently occurring serious bacterial infection in young children and accounts 5 to 14% of emergency department visits Formation of renal scarring in children has been associated with serious complications as hypertension, preeclampsia, and end stage renal failure in young age . So, this study aims to determine whether dexamethasone reduces the renal scarring in children will be treated with antibiotics for acute pyelonephritis. investigators propose to conduct a multi center, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical trial, that will evaluate the efficacy of dexamethasone (0.3 mg/kg every 12 hours per day orally for 3 days) in preventing renal scarring in young febrile children (2 months to 14 years) with a first-diagnosed UTI. 120 Participants will be enrolled over a 3-year period from 6 sites.
Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) was first isolated in Wuhan, China in December 2019. It is rapidly spreading worldwide, posing a severe threat to global health. Many therapeutics have been investigated for the treatment of this disease with inconclusive outcomes. Anakinra - an interleukin (IL)-1 receptor antagonist - had showed survival benefits in patients with macrophage activation syndrome (MAS) and sepsis and was investigated for the use in COVID-19 infection with promising outcomes.
The purpose of this prospective randomized trial is to study the role of Indocyanine green (ICG) to visualize the Critical View of Safety during emergency Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy for patients with Acute Cholecystitis.
Variation of morphine requirements are seen considerably. Studies showed that pharmacogenetics (PGx) could possibly be used to tailor pain medication according to an individual's genetic background. While prior studies demonstrated the association of genetic polymorphism with opioid requirements in various types of surgeries in Asian and European populations, there are no published data in Middle East populations especially Arabs. However, in our area we have a lot of theincity that may give us an answer for this research question. Objectives: The primary Objective of this study is to investigate whether the genetic polymorphism of human μ-opioid receptor gene (OPRM1), ATP binding cassette gene (ABCB1) and rs2952768 are contributing to the variation of morphine consumption in women undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The secondary objective is to assess the effect of these genetic polymorphisms on pain score, analgesic dosage requirements, and complications of morphine use in these patients within the first 24 hours.
The burnout phenomenon first came to clinical science 50 years ago. It is exponentially rising worldwide which prompted its discoverers to develop the most popular tool for its assessment, known as the Maslach burnout inventory (MBI)1. Common symptoms of burnout include depression, irritability, and insomnia. The growing demand for extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) may have an effect on burnout as the newly introduced services is demanding in effort and put the practitioners on complex ethical and administrative situations. We conducted a cross-sectional descriptive study using a combined methodological quantitative and qualitative approach involving a convenience sample of 1000 healthcare practitioners within surgical and medical ICUs of Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), Qatar. We will use used two main instruments to develop an online questionnaire: - The MBI-human service survey (MBI-HSS) and the Leadership scale Expectations: we expect that we will have a new insight about the impact of these complex interventions on practitioner's burnout.
