Evaluating Supplementing Residential Substance Use Treatment With Written Exposure Therapy for Veterans With Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Substance Use Disorders (SUD)
Recruiting
Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Substance Use Disorder (SUD) are highly comorbid, and comorbidity increases risk for poor functional outcomes. Risks for poor quality of life and suicide increase further for those with co-occurring PTSD and SUD diagnoses as compared to either condition alone, with suicide attempt rates three times higher for Veterans with alcohol use disorder and PTSD (Norman, Haller, Hamblen, Southwick & Pietrzak, 2018). For patients with PTSD-SUD, there is evidence of... Read More

Microbiome Modulation With Prebiotics in PTSD and Cirrhosis
Recruiting
Despite medical advancements, PTSD remains a major issue in Veterans1. Current treatment strategies have relatively poor adherence. In patients with PTSD and cirrhosis, there is greater cognitive impairment as well as changes in gut microbiome structure and function2,3. In addition, when there is concomitant cirrhosis, medication-related treatment options become even narrower from a safety and tolerability perspective and cognitive issues pertaining to cirrhosis could impact participation3.

Self-Management Program for AIS D SCI
Recruiting
About 25-51% of adults with acquired spinal cord injury (SCI) have "AIS D" SCI, the lowest severity grade of neurologic injury. Veterans with AIS D SCI generally have better outcomes in mobility, community integration, and employment. However, counterintuitively, they are also at higher risk of poor subjective well-being (SWB) and related psychosocial outcomes. Preliminary evidence suggests that poorer SWB in this group is associated with distinctive, modifiable factors such as less intensity of... Read More

PENG vs FICB for Hip Fracture in ED Patients
Recruiting
Regional anesthesia for hip fractures has been shown to decrease rates of delirium in elderly patients with hip fractures as well as improve pain compared to systemic opioids. The Pericapsular Nerve Group (PENG) block has recently received attention as an alternative approach to femoral nerve block and Fascia Iliaca Compartment Block (FICB). The investigators seek to evaluate if there is a difference between the PENG and FICB in terms of efficacy of pain control in ED patients presenting with hi... Read More

A Clinical Trial Comparing FS With ZOE and Non-eugenol Based Materials in Primary Teeth Pulpotomies
Recruiting
Internal resorption in the most common cause of failure in FS pulpotomies in primary molars. This has been attributed to the release of free eugenol from the zinc and eugenol mixture of the base material over the pulp tissue. Zinc oxide-eugenol (ZOE) paste is the most common base material placed over the infected pulp tissues during pulpotomies of primary molars, however the evidence suggests that the eugenol component has been associated with the failure of the vital pulp treatment in primary m...
