Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.
|Eligible Ages||18 Years - 80 Years|
This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.
The person who is responsible for the scientific and technical direction of the entire clinical study.

|Fused Vertebrae, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Sagittal Deformities, Thoracolumbar Kyphosis|
Pedicle Subtraction osteotomy (PSO) is a surgical option for treating several spinal deformities. It has been utilized in alignment disorders of the fused spine, in the lumbar spine to treat large sagittal deformities and in patients with ankylosing spondylitis with thoracolumbar kyphotic deformity. PSO typically results in substantial loss of blood (as much as 2L) with a significant portion of the loss likely occurring at the osteotomy surfaces post-surgically. The control of peri-operative blood loss is considered a critical issue by spine surgeons. A variety of methods have been proposed for the reduction of blood loss during or immediately after spine surgery, including preoperative use of erythropoietin, autologous blood, cell salvage, intra-operative controlled hypotension, and the use of anti-fibrinolytic drugs. Bone hemostats have traditionally not been part of the standard of care to promote hemostasis probably because most traditional options (e.g., bone wax) are nonabsorbable and thus might interfere with fusion at the osteotomy site. MONTAGE is a settable (hardening) bioabsorbable polymer and hydroxyapatite/beta tricalcium phosphate based putty, used in the control of bleeding from bone during spine, orthopedic, craniomaxillofacial, thoracic and other surgical procedures, and has been FDA cleared.
