There are about 365 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Tunisia. 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.
prospective randomized single blind study, including full term adult parturients, ASA 2, 3 status, scheduled for vaginal delivery. patients were randomized at 3 cm of cervix dilatation, into 2 groups. Epidural analgesia was initiated and maintained with a solution of Bupivacaine 0,125% and Sufentanil 0,25 mcg/ml. After an initial bolus of 16 ML, patients were randomly assigned to receive intermittent boluses of 8 ml every 60 minutes after the initial dose followed by supplementary PCEA boluses of 8 ml for the first group ( PCEA group) or a continuous epidural infusion at the rate of 8 ml/h adjustable and starting immediately after The initial bolus of 16 ml for patients of the second group (CEI Group).
A brief, nurse-led educational intervention using motivational interviewing substantially improved general and disease-specific self-management skills in youth with type 1 diabetes.
he aim of this prospective, analytic trial was to evaluate the accuracy of blood lactates levels in predicting mortality in ICU patients.
In this prospective randomized-controlled study, treatment-naive H. pylori-infected patients are randomized to receive either standard triple therapy or sequential therapy. The aim is to compare the efficacy of concomitant quadruple therapy with standard triple therapy as a first line treatment for H. pylori infection in Tunisian patients.
This study aimed to investigate the psychological impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on healthcare workers (HCWs) and to identify ways of coping with this unprecedented stressful situation.
Labor induction is the stimulation of uterine contractions during pregnancy, before labor begins on its own to achieve a vaginal birth. A health care provider might recommend labor induction for various reasons: primarily when there's concern for a mother's health or a baby's health. Combined with oxytocin infusion, amniotomy is commonly used in the induction of labor. However the perfect timing of amniotomy is still unknown. The aim of this study is to determine whether the early amniotomy followed by oxytocin, or initiating induction of labor with oxytocin followed by late amniotomy, is effective to reach active phase of labor.
A prospective randomized double-blind study including patients ASA I-II, aged more than 18 years undergoing surgery under general anesthesia (GA) and endotracheal intubation. Patients were randomized allocated into 2 groups: ketamine group received ketamine gargle (0.5 mg/kg up to 30 ml dextrose water) and magnesium group received magnesium sulfate gargle (20 mg/kg up to 30 mL dextrose water ) 15 minutes before the operation. Our primary outcome is sore throat and the secondary judging criteria are cough, dysphonia and satisfaction. A standardized anesthesia protocol was followed for all patients. After extubation, the patients were asked to grade POST, hoarseness, and cough at 15 min, 1h, and 24 h.
Patients were randomized into two groups: Group Gabapentine ( G group) received 600 mg of Gabapentin (two tablets) two hours prior to surgery and saline solution before induction of spinal anesthesia and group Ketamine ( K group) received two placebo tablets and an injection of ketamine at a dosage of 0.15 mg/Kg before induction of spinal anesthesia.. During the surgery, blood pressure and heart rate were monitored. Postoperative analgesia was provided by a PCA morphine. Acute postoperative pain was assessed by a visual analog scale. The incidence of postoperative neuropathic pain was detected by the DN4 questionnaire after one and three months of surgery.
participants were randomly divided into three groups : group 30 , group 40 and group 50 . for all the three groups an ultrasound guided supra-inguinal fascia iliaca block had been performed. for group 30 ,a volume of 30 ml of 0,2 % ropivacaine had been injected for group 40 ,a volume of 40 ml of 0,2 % ropivacaine had been injected for group 50 ,a volume of 50 ml of 0,2 % ropivacaine had been injected
Patients were randomly assigned to tow groups: infrainguinal ultrasound guided iliaca fascia block (FIBSI) and femoral nerve block (FNB) for FIBSI, the probe is placed transversely between anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS) and the pubic spine. The transducer is translated laterally to identify the Sartorius muscle. Cephalic inclination of the probe. The medial end of the transducer faces towards the umbilicus, which is the final position. The 100mm neurostimulation needle is advanced in the In Plan approach to pass through the iliac fascia. Once the correct position is confirmed, 30 ml of 1% Ropivacaine is gradually injected between the iliac fascia and the iliac muscle. For FNB, the probe was placed under the inguinal ligament. The femoral vessels and the nerve section are visualized; The 100mm neurostimulation needle is advanced in the In Plan approach and 30ml of 1% Ropivacaine has been injected along the nerve sheath
