NCT ID: NCT05429281 Completed - Cerebral Palsy Clinical Trials

The Role of Pilates, Plyometrics, and Their Combination for Children With Unilateral Cerebral Palsy

Start date: February 7, 2021
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This study was conducted to compare the effect of Pilates-based core strengthening (PsCS) and plyometric-based muscle loading (PlyoML) and their combination on postural control, balance, and mobility in children with unilateral cerebral palsy (ULCP). Eighty-one children with ULCP were randomly allocated to the PsCS (n = 27), PlyoML (n = 27), or combined intervention (n = 27) group. Participants in the three groups were assessed for postural control, balance, and mobility on the pre and post-treatment occasions.

NCT ID: NCT05428254 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Neck Pain, Posterior

Radiofrequency Therapy for Chronic Neck Pain.

Start date: July 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Background: Chronic neck pain (CNP) is a major health problem affecting individuals with high prevalence and subsequent complications which interfere with the physical, personnel, and psychological status. The capacitive and resistive radiofrequency therapy (CRRT) is a relatively new treatment modality used in rehabilitation with no evidence on its efficacy on chronic neck pain. Objective: The aim of the present study is to investigate the effect of the CRRT alone or with manual therapy in the treatment of patients with patients with non-specific CNP. Hypotheses Is the application of the CRRT when applied alone or with combination with manual therapy and exercises effective in decreasing pain and improving the function and strength in patients with non-specific chronic neck pain?? Methods: 60 patients will participle in the study. They will be recruited from the hospital in mecca, Saudi Arabia. They will be randomized into three groups. Group I will be treated with stretching exercises (EX) and manual therapy (Manual + EX group). Group II will be treated with CRRT plus exercises (CRRT+ EX group). Group III will be treated by EX plus manual therapy applied during CRRT for groups (Manual + CRRT+ EX group). For groups II and III, capacitive electrodes will be applied for five minutes. Then the resistive electrodes will be applied for 10 minutes and finally the capacitive will be applied again for another five minutes. Assessment of the neck pain, function, CROM, trigger points, neck muscle strength as well as neck angles will be performed. Measurement will be performed before, after 6 weeks, and 6 months of treatment as follow up measurements. Multivariate analysis of variance was used to compare between and within groups. The level of statistical significance is set as P<0.05.

NCT ID: NCT05427591 Completed - Dental Caries Clinical Trials

Evaluation of the Chemo-mechanical Caries Removal Agent (BRIX3000®) in Primary Molars

Start date: October 1, 2019
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Dental caries is one of the most prevalent chronic diseases in people worldwide. Traditional clinical treatment of dental decay has developed on the basis of the removal of carious tissues with high-speed handpieces and slow-rotating instruments, inducing pain, disturbing sounds, and vibrations. In addition, this method comprises the tooth structure by removing both "caries-affected dentin" and "caries-infected dentin". The use of the chemo-mechanical caries removal (CMCR) method is one of the main implementations of the minimal intervention dentistry idea accepted in the last ten years. It includes the selective removal of "caries-infected dentin" while preserving the healthy "caries-affected dentin" that has the ability to remineralize. The CMCR method differs from the traditional surgical method in that it selectively removes carious dentin. Therefore, it is less destructive and less painful, thereby promoting a positive attitude towards visiting dentists. A novel agent for the CMCR method named "BRIX3000®" by the laboratory Brix Medical Science has been released onto the dental market in 2016. It is a papain-based gel derived from latex and fruits of green papaya (Carica Papaya) that works as a chemical debridement with a unique technology called Encapsulating Buffer Emulsion (EPE). Investigations are required to evaluate and compare the outcomes of two CMCR agents, "BRIX3000®" and "Carie-CareTM," versus the traditional surgical methods. Therefore, the present study aims to perform a clinical and microbiological evaluation of caries removal using "BRIX3000®" and "Carie-CareTM" versus the traditional surgical methods in primary molars among children in Jeddah city, Saudi Arabia.

NCT ID: NCT05421468 Recruiting - Hypothyroidism Clinical Trials

Timing of Thyroxine Dose In Ramadan

Start date: March 14, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

A Randomized trial comparing two different timing of taking thyroxine in patients with Hypothyroidism during fasting the month of Ramadan.

NCT ID: NCT05412823 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Intubation Complication

Neurologic Function Post Intubation

NeuroHypoxia
Start date: July 1, 2022
Phase:
Study type: Observational

The frequency of oxygen desaturation during emergency intubation is not uncommon. However, the significance and clinical sequalae of hypoxia during emergency intubation in critically ill, non-trauma patients is not known. Therefore, the aim of this study is to evaluate neurologic function post-intubation of critically ill, non-trauma patients. Providing knowledge on whether the degree of hypoxia during emergency intubation is associated with worse neurologic outcomes, will guide clinical practice to ameliorate that level of hypoxia

NCT ID: NCT05403593 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Mechanical Thrombectomy

Registry of Emergent Large veSsel oCclUsion duE to IntraCranial AtherosclerosiS

RESCUE-ICAS
Start date: December 15, 2021
Phase:
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

The aim of this study is to develop an international multicenter registry of patient data and outcomes for patients undergoing mechanical thrombectomy for emergent large vessel occlusion with residual underlying stenosis following successful revascularization.

Mirror Therapy on Hand Function in Cerebral Palsy

Start date: May 26, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The aim is to investigate the effect of mirror therapy on hand functions in children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy.

Behavioral Intervention to Promote Healthy Lifestyle Behaviors

Start date: April 29, 2020
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

NCT ID: NCT05385029 Completed - Hypothyroidism Clinical Trials

Fetal and Neonatal Thyroid in Pregnancies With Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 ( SARS- COV2 ) COVID-19

COVID-19
Start date: May 1, 2020
Phase:
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

The thyroid gland has been shown to be a common target for COVID 19 virus. Babies born to mothers positive for COVID 19 infections were noticed to have elevated thyroid stimulating hormone ( TSH ) levels on screening. Thyroid function tests were monitored in these babies to determine presence of temporary or permanent thyroid disorders following COVID 19 infections during pregnancy.
