Long Duration Therapeutic Ultrasound on Tendon Injuries

The ability of long duration therapeutic ultrasound to reduce pain, increase strength, and improve quality of life for patients with tendon injury [e.g. tendinopathy of the elbow (medial or lateral], Achilles tendon, or patellar tendon) will be assessed. During the 7-week protocol, participants will receive 4 continuous hours of therapy ...

Phase N/A

Neurophysiology of Weakness and Exercise in Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy

The long-term goal of our research agenda is to identify the mechanisms associated with rotator cuff tendinopathy (impingement syndrome) and subsequently evaluate novel treatment strategies that address these mechanisms. The objectives of this application are to study the muscle patterns in patients with rotator cuff tendinopathy as well as the ...

Phase N/A

Natural History of Shoulder Pathology in Manual Wheelchair Users

Of the 1.7 million wheelchair users in the United States (US), 90 percent, or 1.5 million persons use manual wheelchairs (MWCs). People with traumatic and non-traumatic spinal cord injuries (SCI) make up approximately 20% of the MWC users, and 12,000 new traumatic SCIs occur every year. While MWCs are immediately ...

Phase N/A

Neural Adaptation After Tendon Transfer and Training in Tetraplegia

Restoring upper limb function is rated among the highest priorities for individuals with tetraplegia. Re-establishing active grasp and pinch strength to the hand can be accomplished by tendon transfer procedures in which the tendon of a strong proximal muscle is surgically re-attached to the tendon of a paralyzed muscle. A ...

Phase N/A

Cascade PRFM Study: The Evaluation of Cascade Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM) on Rotator Cuff Healing

Hypothesis: The use of cascade platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) on medium and large sized rotator cuff tears will improve patient results versus the control results by 50%. The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of PRFM on rotator cuff repairs. Since locally applied platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) ...

Phase

Evaluation of Outcomes With Amniotic Fluid for Musculoskeletal Conditions Musculoskeletal Conditions

Medical providers are often faced with patients whose source of pain may be the result of an inflammatory response caused by trauma or disease. By managing the patient's inflammation, the clinician may see improved response to traditional pain management therapy and existing protocols. Also, degenerative arthritis of spinal and extremity ...

Phase

Treatment of Acute and Chronic Ligament and Tendon Injuries With Platelet Rich Plasma

Pre-procedure diagnosis: The appropriate clinical evaluation will be dictated by the examining physician. Minimal pre-procedure studies will include plain radiographs and MRI. All patients will complete a pretreatment questionnaire. Patients will be randomized and blinded to a treatment regimen. Method of randomization: Some of the participating subjects will receive platelet ...

Phase N/A

NeoPatch Used as Adjunct in Foot and Ankle Tendon Surgery

This study is a prospective, single center, postmarket study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of NeoPatch used as a tissue cover for chronically injured tendons requiring surgical revision. NeoPatch is a tissue covering derived from terminally sterilized, dehydrated human placental membrane tissue comprised of both amnion and chorion. Candidates ...

Phase N/A

Adaprev in Digital Flexor Tendon Repair

This study is being undertaken to verify the safety and performance of Adaprev™, a Class III medical device, when administered as a short term implant into the tendon sheath at the time of surgery, on the post-operative function of severed digital tendons. Subjects are randomised to either Adaprev or standard ...

Phase N/A

Early Controlled Loading on Conservative Treated Achilles Tendon Ruptures

Treatment of Achilles tendon ruptures includes surgical repair or immobilization in an orthosis, followed by prolonged rehabilitation. Improved rehabilitation regimens still display imperfect recovery, with deficits such as persistent end-range muscle weakness, tendon elongation and incomplete return to pre-injury activity level. The underlying mechanisms are unknown, but are likely to ...
