There are about 6709 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Sweden. 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 research project will investigate motor imagery training in stroke rehabilitation during which patients receive feedback in real time from their brain activity measured with ElectroEncephaloGraphy (EEG). The investigators hypothesize that the feedback training allows to internally stimulate brain motor networks in order to promote functional recovery of the hand.
Many hearing aid users experience substantial communication difficulties that may affect their participation in daily life situations negatively. One of the reasons for experiencing remaining problems could be due to unrealistic expectations, another reason could be that the hearing aid is not well adjusted or that the hearing aid user didn't got sufficient support and follow-up from the audiologist. The purpose of this project is to offer remote hearing aid adjustment as an additional support for new hearing aid users.
Long COVID Syndrome (LCOV) or (Long COVID) is defined as 'signs and symptoms that develop during or following an infection consistent with COVID-19, continue for more than 12 weeks and are not explained by an alternative diagnosis'. 1 in 10 infected individuals may suffer persistent symptoms, and we are facing an emerging problem that will severely affect individuals, health care systems and society for years to come. We explore hyperbaric oxygen administered in a randomized placebo-controlled clinical trial as a potential treatment for patients suffering from Long COVID. The overall hypothesis to be evaluated is that hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) alleviates symptoms associated with Long COVID.
In this study, adults with Fabry Disease who have not had any treatment for this condition will be treated with Replagal. The main aim of the study is to check if Replagal improves kidney function and heart structure of participants with Fabry Disease. Participants will receive one Replagal infusion every other week for up to 104 weeks. They will visit the clinic every 12 to 14 weeks during treatment with a follow-up visit 2 weeks after treatment.

The purpose of this randomized controlled trial is to assess whether AI can improve the efficacy of mammography screening, by adapting single and double reading based on AI derived cancer-risk scores and to use AI as a decision support in the screen reading, compared with conventional mammography screening (double reading without AI).
This is a single-arm, observational, multicenter PMCF investigation designed to confirm clinical performance and safety of ChloraSolv when exposed to larger population of clinical users. Approximately 65 subjects will be enrolled (calculated dropout range 20%) from at least 6-12 sites in Sweden. Subjects presented with chronic leg ulcers and chronic diabetic foot ulcers in need of debridement will be enrolled and receive application of ChloraSolv per clinical routine at treating site and in accordance with the ChloraSolv Instruction for Use for up to 24 weeks. Subjects will attend a baseline visit to assess eligibility and collect demographic and baseline data and initiate treatment. There will be two follow up visits in the investigation. The first follow up visit will take place at End of Treatment, as based on investigator judgement and clinical routine at the treating site, maximum 24 weeks post baseline per the IFU. After End of Treatment, subjects will continue in the investigation with wound management per clinical routine at the treating sites for 6 weeks. At 6 weeks post End of Treatment, subjects will attend a Follow-up visit to assess safety, wound status and relative change in wound size. Besides confirmation of the clinical performance and safety when used in a larger population the investigation also includes analysis of treatment period duration. Additionally, health economy parameters will be analyzed. The investigation will be monitored to confirm the already known precautions as well as identify new precautions and possible contraindications for the use of the device. Photography of the wound pre and post debridement will be performed to confirm wound size and amount of devitalized tissue in the wound.
This study will compare outcomes of two different delivery methods (Face-to-face and digitally) of first-line treatment for hip and knee osteoarthritis.
In colorectal surgery, hand suturing and stapling are routine methods for performing intestinal anastomoses, and these methods appear to be similar in terms of clinical safety. Despite several years of experience with surgical procedures as well as improvements to the medical devices, problems with disturbed anastomotic healing leading to leakage and stenosis after colorectal surgery remain a significant challenge for surgeons. A frequency of anastomotic leakage after stapling or suturing has been reported to range from 3% to 20%. In addition, preoperative radiotherapy has been shown to increase the risk of anastomotic leakage even further. The methods that are used today to detect leakages are unfortunately inaccurately and limited to monitoring symptoms, temperature, CRP-levels, and performing abdominal examinations and CT-scans. These clinical signs and parameters usually become apparent several days after onset of the leakage, which leads to a delayed diagnosis. Anastomotic leakage is not only a significant cause of increased morbidity of complications and mortality in patients, but also associated with increased risk of local recurrence and poor prognosis. Moreover, when reoperation is required to fix the leakage, a permanent stoma may be made at the level of the sigmoid colon and this procedure impacts live quality of patients negatively. Based on the above considerations, a novel, adaptive anastomotic method has been developed by CarpoNovum to achieve a safer anastomosis. The method's working name is C-REX Ring-locking Procedure. C-REX is referred to our Colorectal anastomotic rings for Re-join the intestinal ends and validate the anastomosis, with function of Extract samples for analysis and conduct X-ray through connected catheters. The newly developed adaptive anastomotic medical devices, C-REX LapAid Cath and C-REX RectoAid Cath are easy to use, with unique possibility to control the anastomosis during and after surgery. The previous successful pre-market data support a successful CE marking of the devices, which encourages a post-market clinical follow-up (post CE mark clinical study) in patients undergoing colonic resection to collect post-market data of C-REX LapAid Cath and C-REX RectoAid Cath for the purpose of clinical evaluation and risk analysis.
This observational study will follow the chiropractors and naprapaths in Sweden to study how work environment, health, and economy is changing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
