2 in progress, 1 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Ailliance Post-Market Clinical Study

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of this clinical study is to collect performance and safety data for post-market Medtronic devices indicated for cranial and/or spinal indication(s). Subjects are enrolled and followed postoperatively for up to 24 months. The Ailliance clinical study is intended to collect data congruous with routine clinical care practices.

  • Tranexamic Acid to Reduce Blood Loss in Spine Trauma Surgery

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This study is designed to evaluate the efficacy of topical tranexamic acid to reduce perioperative blood loss, reduction in postoperative drain output and allogenic transfusion requirements. The proposed study will be a prospective, randomized, double-blind (subject, surgeons, investigators, research coordinators) placebo-controlled study. Patients following high energy trauma who have sustained thoracic or lumbar spine fractures, dislocations or ligamentous injury with resultant instability requiring posterior spinal fusion will be enrolled for this study. Furthermore, patients undergoing elective complex deformity surgery will also be enrolled. Both populations of patients will be randomized into two groups. Group I will receive standard of care operative fixation with topical tranexamic acid intervention (test); Group II will receive standard of care operative fixation with normal saline (placebo) intervention. This study will have a 2-year follow-up and will consist of three periods: screening/enrollment phase up to 21 days from the day of injury to the day of randomization and operative intervention, an inpatient data collection period for 4 days postoperative, and then a follow-up period for 2-years postoperative (visits occurring at 2 week, 16 week, 1 year, and 2 year) time points.
