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.
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...
This study will help the investigators design a method to detect the disease-causing immune cells in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Such methods are not currently available, but if successful, would help scientists to better understand the causes of RA.
Intraoperative Neuromonitoring (IONM) is a tool used by neurophysiologists during spine surgery to prevent irreversible damage to the spinal cord during procedures through a system of alerts. This study investigates the effectiveness of IONM in 300 participants receiving spine surgery. The goal of this study is to refine the alert criteria for procedures in which IONM is used.
This study evaluates the addition of dry needling to exercise as part of physical therapy for the treatment of shoulder adhesive capsulitis. There will be two groups. One will receive actual dry needling to the clinically determined shoulder / parascapular trigger points. The other group will receive a sham needle treatment to the clinically determined areas.
