Investigation of Brain Functional MRI as an Early Biomarker of Recovery in Individuals With Spinal Cord Injury

Early detection of response to spinal cord injury (SCI) therapeutic intervention programs is vital, as it will enable early termination of intervention in non-responding patients, prevent unnecessary financial burden, and allow for early changes of the programs. In this project, the investigators propose that resting state functional MRI (rsfMRI) can ...

Phase N/A

Outcomes After Spinal Cord Injury (OASIS)

The National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center estimates 282,000 people in the US live with spinal cord injury (SCI), with approximately 17,000 new cases occurring each year. There has been tremendous progress in the medical and rehabilitative management of people who have sustained SCI including improved clinical outcomes, decreased mortality ...

Phase N/A

Optimized Recovery After Trauma in Geriatric Patient

At present, there is evidence that structured care within healthcare (CGA and ERAS) increases the conditions for good care and better recoveries after acute conditions, planned and unplanned surgery. However, there are gaps in knowledge regarding elderly patients who are cared for within the surgical context. In this project we ...

Investigation Into an Innovative Clinical Slip Inducing Device in the Chronic Incomplete Spinal Cord Population

All planks appear the same but can be adjusted on the underside allowing for it to be stable or can allow a slip in the forward and/or backward direction of up to 8 inches. This distance was determined from a review of slip bio-mechanics that noted that a slip is ...

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 ...

Suturing With U-Technique Versus Un-Reapproximated Wound Edges During Removal of Closed Thoracostomy-tube Drain

Background: Closed thoracostomy tube drainage or chest tube insertion is one of the most commonly performed procedures in thoracic surgery. There are several published evidence-based guidelines on safe performance of a chest tube insertion. However, there is absence of any prospective controlled trial or systematic review, that scientifically proves the ...

Phase N/A

Non-invasive Cervical Electrical Stimulation for SCI

Roughly 60% of spinal cord injuries occur at the cervical level. Most injuries are anatomically incomplete. Activating spared nerve circuits augments functional recovery of the damaged nervous system. With this goal, the Investigators have developed a novel method of non-invasive cervical electrical stimulation (CES). Preliminary data show that CES triggers ...

Phase N/A

Zinc Oxide Versus Petrolatum Following Skin Surgery

Patients who have undergone dermatologic excision for any indication with or without Mohs micrographic surgical technique and surgically closed in linear fashion with scar length of greater than or equal to 4.5cm on any site but the scalp will be approached for enrollment in the study. Any closure in which ...

Phase N/A

Probiotic Prophylaxis for Microbiome Modulation and VAP or Infections Prevention in Multitrauma Patients

The oropharyngeal swab will be collected on days 1, 3 and 7 after ICU admission and upon the occurrence of VAP or other infection. Nonbronchoscopic bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) using a protected catheter will be collected on day 3 after ICU admission and upon the occurrence of VAP. Whole blood sample ...

Effect of Giving Reduced Fluid in Children After Trauma

Aggressive fluid resuscitation has been the cornerstone of early post-operative and trauma management for decades. However, recent prospective adult studies have challenged this practice, linking high volume crystalloid resuscitation to increased mortality, cardiopulmonary, gastrointestinal and hematologic complications. A retrospective study the investigators recently performed at their quaternary-care children's hospital echoed ...
