Surgery clinical trials at UCSF

3 in progress, 2 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Dropless Postoperative Regimen After Cataract Surgery in a Vulnerable, County-hospital Population

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The current postoperative cataract surgery eye drop regimen used at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital (ZSFG) is a significant burden for its patient population, contributing to high rates of non-adherence and the development of postoperative complications. The investigators propose to replace this complex regimen with a single administration of intraocular antibiotic and subconjunctival steroid at the time of surgery. This pilot study will obtain the preliminary data required to eventually fully evaluate this innovation in postoperative care in a safety-net population with respect to postoperative outcomes, patient compliance, and patient and caregiver satisfaction.

  • Virtual Reality as a Postoperative Pain Management Adjunct in Older Adults: An Acceptability and Feasibility Study

    open to eligible people ages 65 years and up

    This single-arm mixed methods study aims to determine potential differences in self-reported postoperative pain intensity levels, anxiety, and state of relaxation through immediate pre-post intervention evaluation among those aged 65 or older who receive immersive virtual reality during their hospitalization, up to three days following major elective surgery. In addition, the investigators will evaluate the feasibility and acceptability of virtual reality for use in this older adult population. This study will not evaluate the efficacy of VR. The main questions this study seeks to answer are: 1. What is the feasibility and acceptability of using immersive virtual reality to impact clinical outcomes such as pain, anxiety, and relaxation in older adults who have undergone major elective surgery? 2. What is the older adult's user experience with virtual reality during hospitalization up to the three days following major elective surgery?

  • PST in Surgery: Feasibility and Acceptability Pilot

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The goal of this clinical trial is to test problem solving therapy (PST) in older adults who are undergoing major surgery. The main question it aims to answer is: • What is the feasibility and acceptability of delivering PST to older surgical patients with depressive symptoms or report lacking social support in the pre-operative and post-operative setting?
