There are about 931 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Saudi Arabia. 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.
This study compared the effects of patellar taping and electromyographic-biofeedback (EMG-BF) guided isometric quadriceps strengthening at different knee angles in patello-femoral pain syndrome (PFPS).
This study is investigating how Mim8 works compared to other medicines in people with haemophilia A, who either have inhibitors or do not have inhibitors. Mim8 is a new medicine that will be used for prevention of bleeding episodes. Mim8 works by replacing the function of the missing clotting factor VIII (FVIII). When and how often participants will receive Mim8 is dependent on their previous treatment - but is otherwise decided by chance. The study will last for 72-124 weeks (17-29 months) depending on how long participants will be followed before it is decided when they start receiving Mim8 - the period before this is decided is called the 'run-in'. Participants will have 13-17 clinic visits. Mim8 will be injected into a skinfold on the stomach with a thin needle either once a week or once a month.
Postural balance control is based on complex mechanisms involving several sensory and motor systems. Maintaining postural equilibrium requires muscle activation to oppose the balance threats. Stroke may be associated with a variety of deficits, including impaired upper limb functions , poor postural stability, impaired reactive balance control, and delayed responses to external balance perturbations. Individuals with stroke are at high risk for falls in all post-stroke stages. Falls may have long-term serious consequences and can lead to more disability. Upper extremity movements have a relevant contribution in controlling balance and enhance the ankle and hip strategies for maintaining upright postural stability among healthy adults. Upper extremities movements also, constitute important elements in both equilibrium and protective reactions. Appropriate corrective responses of both the upper and lower extremities are essential to regain balance control and reduce the risk of falls. More studies are required to know about the impact of arm movements on postural balance control in individuals post-stroke. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of the improvement of the upper extremity functions on postural balance control in patients with stroke.
This study will help us in understanding the role of transdermal buprenorphine patch in reducing consumption of opioids in patients undergoing total knee replacement. The objective of our study is to investigate the role of preoperative TDB patch in reducing postoperative opioids consumption in patients undergoing total knee arthroplasties. Patients aged between 18 and 65years, scheduled to undergo total knee arthroplasty with an ASA score of 1 to 3 will be included in the study.
During (OLV) in (VATS) ; many physiological factors may increase risk of hypoxemia such as positioning and intrapulmonary shunt thus compromising cerebral blood flow and oxygenation, resulting in postoperative neurocognitive dysfunctions. The authors hypothesized that increasing (EtCO2) is the most convenient and powerful method for the management of cerebral desaturation. Methods: Seventy patients undergoing VATS were enrolled in this randomized controlled trial. Mechanical ventilation was adjusted to maintain an EtCO2 of 33-38 mm Hg in group I and an EtCO2 of 39-45 mm Hg in group II. Regional cerebral oxygenation was monitored using near-infrared spectroscopy (O3TM, Masimo, Irvine, CA) placed on the patient's forehead.
This study endeavored to evaluate the auxiliary effect of low-energy laser therapy (LLT) on pain, muscle performance, fatigue, and functional ability in children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). Sixty patients with JIA were randomly allocated to the LLT group (n = 30, received LLT in addition to the standard exercise program) or the control group (n = 30, received standard exercise program only). Both groups were assessed for pain intensity, muscle performance, fatigue perception, and functional status.
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is defined as persistent abnormalities of kidney structure or function for more than 3 months leading to a sustained reduction in glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and/or to the occurrence of kidney damage markers, such as albuminuria.  CKD is an emerging global public health problem, having significant morbidity and mortality costs on society. It is considered as an important component of the epidemic of non-communicable diseases in developed, as well as low-income/middle-income countries.  In the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, CKD has been established as a major health issue in recent decades due to the growing incidence and prevalence of end stage kidney disease (ESKD) among the Saudi population. The overall prevalence of CKD was 5.7% in 2010.  In 2017, there were around two million cases of CKD and 3818 deaths due to CKD in Saudi Arabia in 2017.  A recent study also reported the overall prevalence of CKD stages 3 to 5 was 4.4% among the Saudi population.  The major consequences of CKD include disease progression and, subsequently, increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
Osteoporosis is the most prevalent metabolic bone disease. Although osteoporosis is widely considered to be much more prevalent in women approximately 39% of new osteoporotic fractures estimated to have occurred Worldwide in 2000 were in men. A number of studies investigate the effect of physical therapy modalities in treatment of osteoporosis. The use of pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) represents an attractive alternative for Osteoporosis. Previous studies suggested that pulsed electromagnetic field could be beneficial for increase bone mineral density in osteoporotic patients, but there is a lack of Knowledge about the comparison with pulsed high laser therapy.
Obesity is one of the main factors that contribute to an acquired flat foot deformity which in turn impairs the balance strategies. The purpose of the current study was to compare the effect of plyometric exercises with flatfoot corrective exercise on balance, foot posture, and functional mobility in obese children with flexible flatfoot.
Composite is one of the common aesthetic restorations used in the dentistry. With the advancements in the biomaterials the application of the composites has broadened. However due to various factors the composites are associated with dental sensitivity. Hence in our study we evaluate and compare the effectiveness of three desensitizing agents in reducing the post-treatment sensitivity for class I composite restoration.
