Clinical Trial Comparing Negative Pressure Wound Therapy and Standard Dry Dressings

Negative pressure dressings are currently widely used in wound management. Their use is gradually being extended to surgical scars. However, studies demonstrating a clear benefit are rare, particularly in terms of postoperative discharge, the need for surgical revision due to prolonged oozing and cost. The aim of this study is …

Functional Importance of a Powered Multifunction Wrist Protocol

The focus of this study is to conduct a clinical study in individuals with transradial amputations to compare function using a 1-DOF or 2-DOF wrist. All prostheses will be attached to a single DOF Otto Bock hand and controlled using a pattern recognition system equivalent to the Coapt system. This …

Pain After Proximal Digital Amputation Prevention

Finger amputations are common and may be complicated by debilitating nerve pain. This study seeks to determine if nerve pain after digital amputation can be more effectively prevented with either of two new surgical techniques-targeted muscle reinnervation (TMR) or regenerative peripheral nerve interfaces (RPNI)-compared to standard treatment by traction neurectomy …
