Drug-induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) used as diagnostic tool but not yet as a therapeutic procedures to manage the upper airway of snorers and obstructive sleep apnea patients in conditions that mimic natural sleep, there are many aspects that need to be standardized in order to obtain reliable and reproducible information result in cryotherapy at sites of vibration as origin of snoring and site of collapse.
Sezary syndrome (SS) is a rare, aggressive and advanced form of cutaneous T lymphoma with a poor prognosis (5-year survival rate varying between 24% and 52%). The treatments are only suspensive with short-term remissions. For the past fifteen years, therapeutic approaches have been based on depleting monoclonal antibodies (anti-CD52, anti-CCR4, anti-KIR3DL2, anti-CD70), or antibody-drug conjugates (anti-CD30). But while the efficacy of mogamulizumab on progression-free survival was reported in the phase III study, no study on a large cohort has compared the current overall survival of patients with Sezary syndrome to that before the era of monoclonal antibodies. In this context, we propose to report a large series of patients with Sézary syndrome in order to compare the current survival of patients with that of the pre-monoclonal antibodies era (1998-2003). The objective of this study is to assess the evolution of the overall survival of patients with Sezary syndrome since the early use of therapeutic monoclonal antibodies. The underlying hypothesis of this study is that the use of therapeutic monoclonal antibodies has improved the prognosis of these patients. Patients included in this retrospective study are patients with a Sezary syndrome diagnosed between 1998 and 2020.
To assess the effects of a Human Milk Oligosaccharide mix given once daily for 12 weeks on stool consistency and abdominal pain compared to placebo in individuals with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
Shoulder pain is the third most common type of musculoskeletal disorder after back and neck pain in primary care. The prevalence of shoulder pain has been reported between 7% and 26% in the general population, with a life prevalence of up to 67%. The most common cause of shoulder pain is subacromial pain syndrome (SAPS), accounting for 44-60% of all shoulder disorders. Pain caused by SAPS can cause functional impairment and heavy social burden. Before recommending surgery, exercise therapy should be used as the first choice to treat SAPS. Several systematic reviews suggested that supervised exercise therapy can effectively improve the function and pain of patients with SAPS, while several other systematic reviews illustrated that the equal effectiveness of supervised exercises and home-based exercises. Supervised exercise therapy requires substantial and specific resources and may be difficult to apply clinically. Thus, a home-based self-training program may allow individuals to treat SAPS with affordable and easily accessible treatments. The use of complementary and alternative medicine treatment is growing continuously. Yi Jin Bang is a form of mind-body exercise and was developed in Hong Kong in the 1950s based on the principle of traditional Chinese mind-body exercise "Yi Jin Jing". In Chinese, Yi means change, Jin means tendons and sinews, while Bang means stick. As with all other Chinese medical exercises, the focus of Yi Jin Bang is on the cultivation of Qi (energy), which is assumed to harmonize mind and body and so might reduce pain. After reorganizing by physiotherapists, Yi Jin Bang has now become an easy-to-learn exercise program. Many scientific studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of mind-body exercises on pain, such as yoga, Tai Chi, and Qigong. However, the efficacy of Yi Jin Bang exercise in SAPS is not scientifically evaluated. Therefore, the purpose of the present study is to compare the effectiveness of ten weeks of home-based Yi Jin Bang exercise, versus home-based stretching and strengthening exercise, and versus waitlist control on pain, disability, flexibility, and muscular endurance in adults with SAPS. This study hypothesized that home-based Yi Jin Bang exercise and home-based stretching and strengthening exercise have similar effects in reducing pain and disability and improving flexibility and muscular endurance for individuals with SAPS.
60 patients with carpal tunnel syndrome will undergo ultrasound guided hydrodissection of the median nerve with follow up using Boston Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Questionnaire (BCTQ) at 3, 6 and 12 months
The myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are a group of myeloid neoplasms characterized by abnormal differentiation and maturation of myeloid cells, reduced bone marrow (BM) function, and a genetic instability with enhanced risk to transform to secondary acute myeloid leukemia, AML
This study is being conducted to investigate risk factors for disability progression in Multiple Sclerosis and related disorders (MSRD). The primary goal is to assess whether combining information from visual assessment, blood markers, as well as historical and ongoing longitudinal MRIs of the brain, orbit (the part of the skull where eyes are located), and/or spinal cord can predict changes in quantitative disability measures related to MSRD and neurological disease.
The present study will establish a collection of biological samples from Noonan patients to be used for research purposes only, with due respect for confidentiality.
Breast cancer is the most common malignancy among females. Nearly 40-60% of breast surgery patients experience severe acute postoperative pain, with severe pain persisting for 6-12 months in almost 20-50% of patients (post mastectomy pain syndrome) which is defined according to International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) as pain which persists more than 3 months after mastectomy/lumpectomy affecting the anterior thorax, axilla, and/or medial upper arm. Regionale anesthesia is one of the strategies with the potential to prevent the development of chronic pain following breast surgery. We hypothesize that erector spinae plane block is going to be more effective than serratus anterior plane block in the prevention of postmastectomy pain syndrome.
Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSA) is a pathology that affects 2 to 15% of the French adult population and more than 30% of subjects over 65 years old. It consists of repeated collapses of the upper airways during sleep leading to interruptions in ventilation (apneas) or significant reductions in ventilation (hypopneas). Balagny et al. have demonstrated the occurrence of hypertension in patients screened positive for sleep apnea syndrome in a French general population cohort. It is also established that sleep apnea increases the risk of cardiovascular disorders, such as metabolic syndrome (combining abdominal obesity and metabolic disorders), hypertension, heart rhythm disorders, especially at night, atherosclerosis (deposits of atheromatous plaques on the artery walls) or type 2 diabetes. These different complications increase the risk of cardiovascular accidents such as cardiac arrest, myocardial infarction, stroke, and expose to a risk of premature death (Inserm). The treatment of choice is night-time positive pressure ventilation, made possible by the use of a breathing apparatus (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure or CPAP). Alternatives to CPAP are the use of a nocturnal Mandibular Advancement Orthosis (MAO) which advances the jaw and allows a pharyngeal opening, and surgery in selected patients. The phenomenon at the origin of apneas is due to a relaxation of the muscles of the pharyngeal wall located at different heights. This obstruction is favored by anatomical particularities specific to each individual. The clinical examination can detect certain anomalies (enlarged tonsils, obstructive soft palate, prominent tongue base, abnormal epiglottis) and propose surgery to remove the obstruction. Nevertheless, it remains difficult to affirm that the detected anomaly is really at the origin of the obstruction and surgical failures are frequent. Endoscopy under induced sleep has been developed for about 10 years in France. This examination, widely used in the world, remains confidential in France. It consists, in the operating room, in inducing a medicated sleep (specific drugs delivered by an anesthetist) and performing a pharyngolaryngeal fibroscopy. The ENT physician can then visualize "live" the site and origin of the obstruction during an apnea. The main objective is to evaluate the interest of endoscopy under sleep before making a surgical indication in a patient presenting a sleep apnea syndrome. The secondary objective is to evaluate the reliability of sleep endoscopy.
