Motor Representations in Orthopedic Patients

The aim of this study is to investigate the possible effects that a motor limitation at the peripheral level might have on the ability to visually discriminate others' actions. Previous literature has shown that specific motor skills (motor expertise) facilitate the visual discrimination of domain-specific actions, and that these motor ...

Study Comparing Surgical Treatment Versus Non-surgical Treatment of Ulnar Fractures

Ulnar diaphyseal, or "nightstick", fractures are uncommon, but fraught with complications (Pollock et al., 1983; Grace & Witmer, 1980, Atkin et al., 1995) and may prevent return to work (Atkin et al., 1995). 3 systematic reviews have concluded that there is insufficient evidence to guide treatment of isolated ulnar shaft ...

Risk Factors for Staphylococcus Aureus Surgical Site Infections in Orthopedic and Trauma Surgery

Surgical site infections (SSI) in orthopedic surgery are responsible for reduced quality of life, increased length of hospital stay and costs. The most commonly identified organism is Staphylococcus aureus but risk factors for mono microbial S.aureus SSI are not well-known.The aim of this study was to evaluate the incidence rate ...

Phase N/A

Motor Imagery and Rehabilitation of Orthopaedic Patients

Motor imagery is increasingly used as a plasticity-booster to complement conventional rehabilitation. Here the investigators test the hypothesis that the combination of mental training with conventional rehabilitation may speed up the recovery in patients with total knee arthroplasty. The investigators also characterize the brain correlates of such recovery with imagery ...

A Patient Education Video Program for Post-Operative Recovery After Upper Extremity Surgery

Four hundred (400) adult patients undergoing elective outpatient, upper extremity, orthopedic surgeries will be recruited by the surgeon-investigators. Patients will be randomized to view one of two educational programs: 1) a 2-video series regarding post-operative pain management or 2) a video regarding wound care and activity. These patients will be ...

Does IVPCA Increase Opioid Consumption and Side Effects in Fast Track Orthopedic Procedures?

The study aims to compare the use of intravenous patient controlled analgesia (IVPCA) versus the delivery of pain relief (per oral and intravenous (IV) medications as rescues analgesia) on an as needed basis within a well defined fast track protocol that includes multimodal analgesia for patients who are undergoing elective ...
