This is a prospective, randomized clinical trial of patients undergoing 1-level lateral lumbar spinal fusion. This study seeks to randomize patients indicated for Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion (LLIF) into one of two groups: direct decompression and indirect decompression.
Myofascial pain is a common condition in which patients may experience severe chronic pain. The source of this pain is typically the soft tissue. Current methods to address myofascial pain include a procedure called Trigger point Injections. This method involves identifying the areas of muscles that are causing the pain. The most common way to perform trigger point injection involves infiltrating the muscle with local anesthetics and then repeatedly passing the numbing needle in and out of the muscles (needling). This procedure is successful for most patients. However, there is great variability in the way needling is done. Some pain ...
This is a retrospective/prospective, open-label single cohort, multicenter study to collect relevant clinical data from 147 subjects with unicompartmental degeneration of the knee in whom the Journey UNI UKS was previously implanted.
A prospective, observational study assessing the relationship between HbA1c level and the post-injection blood glucose signature. Participants will be non-diabetic, pre-diabetic, non-insulin dependent and insulin dependent type 2 diabetic patients who will be receiving a knee steroid injection. All of them will be consented a week prior to the injection, when the CGM sensor will be applied to the back of the upper arm. This will be removed a week after the injection. KOOS survey as well as VAS will be administered. Adverse events (e.g., change in medication or hospitalization) will be monitored throughout the study.
Local anesthetic resistance is commonly reported by patients with EDS. However, there are no objective data on the occurrence of local anesthetic resistance in EDS patients and in healthy volunteers. We propose to collect such objective data on the frequency of drug resistance and whether any problems with local anesthesia are due to initial ineffectiveness or due to its effects dissipating too soon.
The objective of this retrospective enrollment/prospective follow-up consecutive series PMCF study is to collect data confirming safety, performance and clinical benefits of the Comprehensive Primary Micro Stem and Comprehensive Anatomic Versa-Dial Titanium Humeral Heads when used for primary and revision total shoulder arthroplasty (implants and instrumentation) at 1,3,5,7 and 10 years*. Comprehensive Primary Micro Stem and Comprehensive Anatomic Versa-Dial Titanium Humeral Heads have been on the market since 2007, but have insufficient data to support 10 years of clinical history. Therefore, a prospective aspect to the study will...
The objective of this retrospective/prospective consecutive series PMCF study is to collect data confirming safety, performance and clinical benefits of the Comprehensive Versa-Dial Reverse Ti Glenosphere when used for primary total shoulder arthroplasty, fractures and revision total shoulder arthroplasty (implants and instrumentation) at a 1,2,3,5,7 and 10-year follow-up* to meet EU Medical Device and other regulatory requirements for post market surveillance. Because Comprehensive Reverse Ti Glenospheres have only been on the market since 2009, a prospective aspect to the study will be utilized as well in order to collect long-term...
The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and performance of thoracic and/or lumbar spine surgery using the MLX and XLX ACR interbody implants as measured by reported complications, radiographic outcomes, and clinical patient outcomes. This study is being undertaken to identify possible residual risks and to clarify mid- to long-term clinical performance that may affect the benefit/risk ratios of the MLX and XLX ACR interbody implants.
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and performance of the Modulus 3D-printed titanium interbody implant in patients undergoing thoracic and/or lumbar XLIF as measured by reported complications, radiographic outcomes, and patient-reported outcomes.
The researchers are trying to identify molecular mechanisms that control spine deformity and degenerative changes that can be used for therapeutic strategies.
