Total Joint Arthroplasty (TJA) has become one of the most performed elective procedures. While the results of this procedure are often consistent with high patient satisfaction and return-to-function, wound-related complications can contribute to high-cost "bundle busters". Following surgery, wound drainage or other wound complications can lead to increased cost and decreased patient satisfaction. Secure wound closure is an important step in preventing wound-related complications. The surgical incision should be closed in a manner that prevents the wound edges from separating which could lead to possible drainage and bacterial ...
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and performance of cervical spine surgery using interbody implants as measured by reported complications, radiographic outcomes, and patient-reported outcomes (PROs)
This study evaluates the difference in postoperative bleeding between two study groups, FDA cleared MONTAGE Settable Resorbable Hemostatic Bone Putty and standard of care (no bone hemostat) during pedicle subtraction osteotomy procedures.
The purpose of this study is to compare immune phenotype, function, and specificity of B lymphocytes from different developmental stages in autoimmune patients to B cells from infectious disease patients and healthy controls.
The study will investigate the effects of a traditional, high-intensity strengthening program compared to an investigational low-intensity strengthening program that also uses blood flow restriction as part of the training program. Both groups will be compared to a control group, which will receive no training. Measures of strength, function, and patient outcomes will be taken before starting the training, at mid-term, and at the end of the 8-week training program. Additionally, investigators will collect outcome data at 6 and 12 months after completing the program to assess for long term outcomes. The eligible populations are ...
This study is a multicenter, prospective, non-randomized, non-controlled clinical outcome study. The primary objective of this study is to evaluate improvement of pain score at one year for the Biomet Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder. The secondary objective is collection of long term clinical outcomes.
This will be a prospective study to determine the association between specific genotypes, epigenetics, behavioral, social and biological factors, with the phenotypes, defined by pain perception, postoperative pain, analgesic effects, side effects to perioperative analgesics, chronic postoperative pain, and gene expression in patients following pectus excavatum repair.
Multi-center study to include up to 600 subjects with knee osteoarthritis in unilateral or bilateral knees treated with Regenexx® SD in the osteoarthritic knee/s. Synovial fluid drawn from patients' knee/s prior to receiving Regenexx-SD treatment will be correlated with their clinical outcomes after treatment.
This prospective, non-interventional research registry is designed to study the comparative effectiveness and comparative safety of approved treatments for RA in a cohort of patients cared for by rheumatologists across North America. Secondary objectives include analyzing the epidemiology and natural history of the disease, its comorbidities, and current treatment practices.
Synovitis has an important role in the symptoms and progression of Osteoarthritis (OA). Inflamed synovium has been associated with both increased symptoms and increased progression in OA patients. Furthermore, synovitis observed during knee arthroscopy in our patients undergoing arthroscopic partial meniscectomy (APM) was associated with worse symptoms while adjusting for confounding factors.Therefore, a better understanding of synovitis as a predictor of outcome after APM and as a target for treatment is needed to improve outcomes in this patient population. Triamcinolone has been shown to decrease synovitis-associated outcomes in...
