This prospective observational pilot study included patients of colorectal cancers, in a population subset coming to a tertiary care hospital in northern India, who were operated with curative or palliative intent over a period of one year and followed up for a maximum of 55 months.
In a prospective observational pilot study between April 2015 and June 2019 in nulliparous women with planned pregnancy, we used the pelvic organ prolapse quantification (POP-Q) system; a 2-dimensional (2D) sonography to investigate the bladder neck, cervix, and anorectal junction positions; and a 3D/4D sonography to measure the hiatus of the levator ani muscle (LH area) during Valsalva maneuver.
This is the protocol for an investigator-initiated, single-center observational pilot study on the feasibility of continuous monitoring of health data with a wearable device (WD) in pediatric patients undergoing chemotherapy of cancer.
Methods: An observational pilot study (N = 20) consisting of children with and without active decay and who did and did not respond to silver diamine fluoride provided salivary samples and plaque from infected and contralateral sites.
Design In this observational pilot study, we collected skin secretions from twelve male and ten female control subjects using commercially available, Sebutape®, from the antecubital fossa, forehead, back, and axilla.
Aims: The present cross-sectional, observational pilot study was aimed to study the immunohistochemical expression and prognostic significance of ERα and ERβ in invasive luminal Type A breast carcinoma patients.
In this prospective, observational pilot study of 6 patients, we compared the effects of lidocaine and (R,S)‐ketamine infusions and performed metabolite analyses of (R,S)‐ketamine to determine its metabolic profile in this population.
This observational pilot study examined the adherence of adults with OI to treatment of OSA with PAP therapy, and the evolution of self-experienced sleepiness and depression symptoms before and after treatment.
In this prospective, observational pilot study 42 consecutive patients with end-stage pulmonary disease undergoing LUTX; 15 patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) undergoing pulmonary endarterectomy and 15 patients with lung cancer undergoing major lung resections were analysed.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
We ran a prospective, observational pilot study of 119 combat-injured service members and veterans who completed (1) at least one set of laboratory measurements (blood and urine sample collection and vitals measurements) at Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment of 1988 compliant laboratory locations and (2) at least one online assessment for the Wounded Warrior Recovery Project (WWRP), a 15-year examination of patient-reported outcomes among service members injured on combat deployment.
Methods Single-center, prospective, observational pilot study in an interventional pain practice to test the hypothesis that RFA of painful facets in the setting of spondylolisthesis may contribute to advancement of further degenerative spondylolisthesis.
We evaluated the current clinical practice of pre-warming and its effects on temperature drop and postoperative complications; Methods: This prospective, observational pilot study examines clinical practice in a tertiary hospital on 99 patients undergoing laparoscopic urological surgery.
Using an observational pilot study, we gave information on ECI in a randomized matter to parents of an extremely low gestational age newborn (ELGAN) at the chronological age of 3–4 weeks (cases) or not (controls).
In this prospective, cross-sectional, observational pilot investigation, visual field testing was carried out in 210 eyes of 210 patients (60 Normal, 150 Glaucoma), using suprathreshold VFE application (Version 8) on the iPad and Standard White-on-White using HVFA.
We performed a prospective, observational pilot study in patients presenting for elective surgery to examine: 1) the preoperative plasma dabigatran concentrations on day of surgery associated with the local dabigatran interruption protocol, 2) the potential utility of dabigatran concentrations on day of surgery, and 3) the utility of standard coagulation tests in determining whether dabigatran concentrations were below a ‘safe’ threshold for surgery.
