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

Mesenchymal Stem Cells in Rotator Cuff Repair

Rotator cuff tendinopathy is the main cause of shoulder pain and tear of these tendons affects 20% of the population. Although arthroscopic repair leads to satisfactory clinical results, the retear rates varies from 4 to 94%. The main cause of failure after rotator cuff repair is not related to the ...


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 ...

Phase N/A

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 ...


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

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

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) ...


Fixation of Patellar Tendon Grafts in Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction. Endobutton vs Metal Interference Screws

Primary anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructions with bone-patellar tendon-bone (BPTB) autografts have recently been found to have a lower risk of revision compared with hamstring tendon autografts, and BPTB has again become our graft of choice. Interference screws have been the standard method for fixing the femoral side of a ...

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

NuShield in Surgical Peroneal Tendon Repair

The objective of this clinical trial is to evaluate both the safety and efficacy of using the NuShield allograft in addition to standard of care surgical procedures in subjects requiring surgical repair of the peroneal tendon. The effects of this treatment will be assessed using: Questionnaires Visual Analog Scale Foot ...
