Prospective cohort study to evaluate the utility of quantitative CT analysis to assess ventilation and perfusion defects in patients with Post-acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 (PASC) and functional limitations
To evaluate the fusion status of the hindfoot bones after receiving the ViviGen graft, an FDA approved cellular bone matrix. This is used in a population indicated for hindfoot arthrodesis as an alternative to an autograft.
Obesity, namely at body mass index (BMI) levels exceeding 40kg/m2 (class III obesity), is a risk factor for many diseases including osteoarthritis (OA). In arthroplasty, patients in this population frequently present for and are turned away from surgical intervention. Subsequently, efforts are made to decrease BMI through simple weight loss, yet these have been suggested as ineffective and counterproductive. Furthermore, simple weight loss may include muscle mass loss, which is an additional risk factor for surgery. At the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics Orthopedics Department, efforts have been made to encourage muscle mass...
Studies have demonstrated that early rehabilitation interventions following knee arthroplasty (TKA) can shorten the time needed to regain baseline extension/full extension and gait mechanics. As telehealth visits and home-based rehabilitation increases with advancements in technology, much of this rehabilitation is projected to be performed at home. The purpose of this study is to prospectively evaluate early post-operative knee extension and self-reported outcomes in patients using the Zero Degree Knee positioner (ZDK) compared to subjects not using the ZDK. Patients electing to undergo primary TKA will be recruited into the study and ...
This is an open label study of Ampligen in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome.
The purpose of this study is to allow patients to undergo surgery with the SR™ MCP (Metacarpophalangeal) Implants for finger arthritis. This is NOT a research study, but rather, a requirement by the FDA for humanitarian use of device.
