DExterous Hand Control Through Fascicular Targeting (DEFT) - (Human Subjects)

Our goal is to temporarily implant the following groups for 180 +/- 30 days: 1. Five human partial hand amputees (amputated at the level of the hand) with 2 FAST-LIFE electrodes, one inserted into the motor fascicle of the ulnar nerve and the other into the sensory fascicle. 2. Five human hand and forearm amputees (amputated at the level of the forearm) with 2 FAST-LIFE electrodes in the ulnar nerve (one in the motor fascicle, one in the sensory fascicle) and 2-5 FAST-LIFE electrodes in the median nerve (one in the motor fascicle, one to four in the remaining sensory fascicles).

Criteria for Inclusion of Subjects: Hand and forearm amputees: 1. Male or female, age 18 and older, of any race or ethnicity 2. Able and willing to sign Consent 3. Able and willing to participate in all study activities including implantation, testing and explantation of the study device. 4. Able to communicate effectively in English without an interpreter After preliminary screening subjects will be assessed for the following inclusion criteria: 1. Patient has an existing myoelectric hand prosthesis and demonstrates proficiency during daily use 2. Overall and phantom pain are well-controlled and not incapacitating Criteria for Exclusion of Subjects: 1. If MR neurogram and EMG/NCS study show nerve or muscle dysfunction/injury at a higher level than anticipated based on the appearance of the physical amputation stump, the subject may be excluded from the study due to adverse neuromuscular anatomy which would preclude use of the proposed experimental electrode implants. The radiographs will be used to confirm suitability of the amputation stump configuration. If the bony anatomy of the amputation stump is found to be unsuitable, the patient may be excluded from the study. 2. Subjects who have a history of cardiac arrhythmia will be excluded from the study.

Combination Chemotherapy With or Without Temsirolimus in Treating Patients With Intermediate Risk Rhabdomyosarcoma

This randomized phase III trial studies how well combination chemotherapy (vincristine sulfate, dactinomycin, cyclophosphamide alternated with vincristine sulfate and irinotecan hydrochloride or vinorelbine) works compared to combination chemotherapy plus temsirolimus in treating patients with rhabdomyosarcoma (cancer that forms in the soft tissues, such as muscle), and has an intermediate chance of coming back after treatment (intermediate risk). Drugs used work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Combination chemotherapy and temsirolimus may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether chemotherapy plus temsirolimus is more effective than chemotherapy alone in treating patients with intermediate-risk rhabdomyosarcoma.

Neuromuscular Blockade in Patients With Severe Renal Impairment

This study is intended to be a single-site, prospective, randomized, double-blinded study that intends to enroll a total of 60 patients with severe renal impairment undergoing surgery with general endotracheal anesthesia at Parkland Hospital. Patients will be randomized to receive either neostigmine (for reversal of cisatracurium) or sugammadex (for reversal of rocuronium). A standardized anesthetic protocol that is usual and customary for the type of operation the patient is having will be provided to the anesthesia teams of enrolled subjects. The remainder of the anesthetic care of the subject will not deviate from the standard of care. All patients will be monitored with continuous pulse oximetry postoperatively for 24 hours.

Testicular Tissue Cryopreservation for Fertility Preservation

Testicular tissue cryopreservation is an experimental procedure where a young boy's testicular tissue is retrieved and frozen. This technique is reserved for young male patients who are not yet producing mature sperm, with the ultimate goal that their tissue may be used in the future to restore fertility when experimental techniques emerge from the research pipeline.

Comparing Virtual Reality (VR) to Non-VR for Decreasing Preoperative/Procedural Anxiety

The primary objective of the study is to utilize the modified Yale Preoperative Anxiety scale (mYPAS), a validated preoperative/procedural anxiety score, to measure preoperative anxiety via distraction in pediatric oncology patients undergoing port access. The hypothesis is that using Virtual Reality (VR) will objectively decrease anxiety scores measured by mYPAS by five percent (primary outcome). The secondary outcome will be the parents or the legally authorized representative (LAR) subjective reports of anxiety with the use of VR. The Kind VR device is used in house at Children's Health in the Dallas and Plano campuses. The VR device used in this study qualifies as exempt from FDA IDE regulations. It is a non-significant risk, non-invasive, interactive video device the user wears like goggles. The study carries minimal risks to the subjects and is designed to minimize patient discomfort from placement or motion sickness. Furthermore, the device has disposable covers for protection against infection and can be sanitized between uses, once the disposable covers are removed. Children's Health System of Texas (CHST) and this research group are not partnering entities with the Kind VR, and the Kind VR device is not being studied. The effect of virtual reality (VR) on preprocedural anxiety as measured by questionnaires and the observations of the modified Yale Preoperative Anxiety Scale (mYPAS) is being studied Most patients coming to the Clinic of Cancer and Blood Disorders (CCBD) are under chronic care for their ongoing disease and are likely to be coming to the CCBD at least twice in a 6-month period. The CCBD schedule will be reviewed by the researchers for patients age 5-12, requiring port access at least twice during the next six-month period. Patient families whose child meets the basic screening criteria, and have no exclusion criteria, will be approached privately as possible participants in the study. Up to 100 subjects will be enrolled over a 2-year period. Once the subject/parent or LAR agrees to participate, study staff will randomize the subjects into which standard of care distraction method for anxiety management they will receive first in this study.

The iCat2, GAIN (Genomic Assessment Informs Novel Therapy) Consortium Study

This research study is evaluating the use of specialized testing of solid tumors including sequencing. The process of performing these specialized tests is called tumor profiling. The tumor profiling may result in identifying changes in genes of the tumor that indicate that a particular therapy may have activity. This is called an individualized cancer therapy (iCat) recommendation. The results of the tumor profiling and, if applicable, the iCat recommendation will be returned.

Thoracotomy Versus Thoracoscopic Management of Pulmonary Metastases in Patients With Osteosarcoma

This phase III trial compares the effect of open thoracic surgery (thoracotomy) to thoracoscopic surgery (video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery or VATS) in treating patients with osteosarcoma that has spread to the lung (pulmonary metastases). Open thoracic surgery is a type of surgery done through a single larger incision (like a large cut) that goes between the ribs, opens up the chest, and removes the cancer. Thoracoscopy is a type of chest surgery where the doctor makes several small incisions and uses a small camera to help with removing the cancer. This trial is being done evaluate the two different surgery methods for patients with osteosarcoma that has spread to the lung to find out which is better.

Women must not be breastfeeding. Women who are not of childbearing potential (i.e., who are postmenopausal or surgically sterile as well as azoospermic men) do not require contraception. WOCBP is defined as any female who has experienced menarche and who has not undergone surgical sterilization (hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy) or who is not postmenopausal. Menopause is defined clinically as 12 months of amenorrhea in a woman over 45 in the absence of other biological or physiological causes. In addition, women under the age of 55 must have a documented serum follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) level less than 40 mIU/mL. These durations have been calculated using the upper limit of the half-life for nivolumab (25 days) and are based on the protocol requirement that WOCBP use contraception for 5 half-lives plus 30 days, and men who are sexually active with WOCBP use contraception for 5 half-lives plus 90 days. Should a woman become pregnant or suspect she is pregnant while she or her partner is participating in this study, she (or the participating partner) should inform the treating physician immediately
• Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent document
Exclusion Criteria:

• Patients who have had chemotherapy or radiotherapy within 4 weeks (6 weeks for nitrosoureas or mitomycin C) prior to entering the study or those who have not recovered from adverse events (AEs) due to agents administered more than 4 weeks earlier have not resolved or stabilized. Palliative (limited-field) radiation therapy (RT) is permitted, if all of the following criteria are met:
• Repeat imaging demonstrates no new sites of bone metastases
• The lesion being considered for palliative radiation is not a target lesion
• Patients with prior therapy with an anti-PD-1 or anti-PD-L1
• Patients with prior allogeneic hematologic transplant
• Patients who are receiving any other investigational agents
• Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, ongoing or active infection, symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, cardiac arrhythmia, or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements
• Patients who have had evidence of active or acute diverticulitis, intra-abdominal abscess, gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding, obstruction, and abdominal carcinomatosis which are known risk factors for bowel perforation should be evaluated for the potential need for additional treatment before coming on study. For the IBD (UC and CD) cohort, an endoscopic assessment, disease activity index, and disease specific inclusion/exclusion criteria will substitute for these factors in determining eligibility with the exception of abdominal carcinomatosis, which should prompt further evaluation

Trastuzumab Deruxtecan for the Treatment of HER2+ Newly Diagnosed or Recurrent Osteosarcoma

This phase II trial studies the effects of trastuzumab deruxtecan in treating patients with HER2 positive osteosarcoma that is newly diagnosed or has come back (recurrent). Trastuzumab deruxtecan is a monoclonal antibody, called trastuzumab, linked to a chemotherapy drug called deruxtecan. Trastuzumab attaches to HER2 positive cancer cells in a targeted way and delivers deruxtecan to kill them.

Females on hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and whose menopausal status is in doubt will be required to use one of the contraception methods outlined for women of child-bearing potential if they wish to continue their HRT during the study. Otherwise, they must discontinue HRT to allow confirmation of post-menopausal status prior to study enrollment. For most forms of HRT, at least 2-4 weeks will elapse between the cessation of therapy and the blood draw; this interval depends on the type and dosage of HRT. Following confirmation of their post-menopausal status, they can resume use of HRT during the study without use of a contraceptive method
