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.

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.

This prospective, single-blinded randomized clinical trial investigates the effectiveness of using cooled radiofrequency ablation (CRFA) for the treatment of osteoarthritis (OA) hip pain and function compared with standard of care intra-articular steroid injections. This study also aims to determine if CRFA is more effective at decreasing hip pain from OA after treatment and improving hip function in terms of range of motion and walking mobility when compared to corticosteroid hip injections. The primary outcome of interest is a decrease in visual analog scale (VAS) pain as reported following treatment with either a hip injection or following RFA treatment for patients who are not candidates for total hip arthroplasty (THA). Secondary objectives include physical performance at each follow-up time point including range of motion and 50 ft walk test, Hip disability and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (HOOS) and PROMIS questionnaires at each follow-up time point, patient satisfaction at 24 weeks after treatment, and the number of subjects requesting additional treatment for hip pain during the follow-up period. The assessments will be conducted by comparing patients with pain from hip OA who get CRFA treatment versus patients who get a hip corticosteroid injection. The research hypothesis is that CRFA will lead to a greater reduction in pain up to 24 weeks +/- 2 weeks following treatment compared to a hip corticosteroid injection. This may result in patients having greater relief of their hip pain which may improve joint function and quality of life with the availability of a new alternative to treat hip OA.
Active Comparator: Intra-articular corticosteroid injections
The hip and groin areas will be prepped and draped in the usual sterile fashion with ChloraPrep. Preprocedural vital signs will be performed and will be in the nursing chart for review. Radiology guidance will be used to guide needle placement within the affected hip to administer lidocaine and a corticosteroid intra-articularly.
Active Comparator: Cooled radiofrequency ablation
The hip and groin areas will be prepped and draped in the usual sterile fashion with ChloraPrep. Preprocedural vital signs will be performed and will be in the nursing chart for review. The HALYARD* COOLIEF* SINERGY* Cooled Radiofrequency Probe (sterile, single use) is inserted through a COOLIEF* SINERGY* Introducer used with fluoroscopy guidance in the AP view to visualize the hip joint and sensory nerve areas over the acetabulum (femoral) and ischium (obturator) where the cooled radiofrequency ablation will be applied to create a focal thermal lesion to encompass and denervate the targeted nerves.
Procedure: - Cooled RFA treatment with COOLIEF* device
Patients who are randomized to receive CRFA will be given the treatment by a specialist into the affected hip with OA, and the patient will be followed to determine amount of pain relief and improved hip joint function.
Drug: - intra-articular corticosteroid injection
Patients who are randomized to receive intra-articular corticosteroid injections will be given the treatment by a specialist into the affected hip with OA, and the patient will be followed to determine amount of pain relief and improved hip joint function.
