SANICS II Trial: Stimulation of the Autonomic Nervous System in Colorectal Surgery by Perioperative Nutrition

Postoperative ileus (POI) and anastomotic leakage (AL) are important clinical determinants of short-term morbidity and mortality following colorectal surgery. Importantly, AL is also a risk factor for local recurrence of colorectal cancer and has a significant impact on disease-free and overall survival. It is therefore believed that improving postoperative outcome ...

Prognostic Significance of the Baroreflex Sensitivity Changes After Acute Ischemic Stroke

After acute stroke, baroreflex sensitivity (BRS) is impaired. This impaired acute stage BRS has been reported to be predictive of worsen outcome years after stroke in general. However, it is not very clear if the impaired acute stroke BRS would actually persist months after the acute stage. It is also ...

Phase N/A

HIRREM for Stage 1 Primary Hypertension

The purpose of this research study is to determine the effects of a technique called High-resolution, relational, resonance-based, electroencephalic mirroring (HIRREM), for hypertension. HIRREM uses scalp sensors to monitor brain electrical activity, and computer software algorithms translate selected brain frequencies into audible tones in real time. Those tones are reflected ...

Implantable Cardiac Monitors in High-Risk Post-Infarction Patients With Cardiac Autonomic Dysfunction

Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is the most common single cause of death in the industrialized world. Patients after myocardial infarction (MI) are at increased risk of SCD. Current guidelines recommend prophylactic ICD-implantation in post-MI patients with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF 35%). However, the majority of arrhythmic deaths after ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of Primary Chronic Autonomic Failure

Objective In dysautonomias, altered functions of one or more components of the autonomic nervous system adversely affect health. Primary dysautonomias have been classified clinically into chronic autonomic failure (CAF) syndromes that include pure autonomic failure (PAF), multiple system atrophy (MSA), and Parkinson disease (PD) with autonomic failure (manifested especially by ...

Phase N/A

Pain In Neuropathy Study

Very little is currently known about why some patients with peripheral neuropathy develop neuropathic pain, whilst others do not. It is anticipated that this study will begin to identify features of the peripheral neuropathy, which are and are not, associated with the development and intensity of neuropathic pain and therefore ...

The Effects of Single-Pulse Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation on the Autonomic Nervous System in Healthy Adults

The overall purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of TMS on the ANS. Specifically; the investigator aim to determine if single-pulse TMS of the primary motor cortex in the dominant hemisphere in healthy, young adults will significantly affect 1) heart rate and heart rate variability, 2) blood ...

Investigation of the Rewarming og the Fingers After Cooling and the Autonomic Nervous System in Raynaud's Phenomenon

Raynaud's phenomenon: Raynaud's phenomenon is defined by vasospasms occurring in the fingers, toes, nose, ears or tongue lasting for minutes to hours. The attacks of vasospasms are provoked by cold exposure or stressful emotions and present themselves as well demarcated pallor of the skin and may include desensitization of the ...

Phase N/A

Blood Pressure Lowering Effects of Angiotensin-(1-7) in Primary Autonomic Failure

This is an inpatient study that requires at least four days of admission to the Vanderbilt Clinical Research Center. Autonomic failure patients will be placed on a fixed diet during the admission and will have routine tests performed for screening and clinical characterization. Patients will then receive intravenous angiotensin-(1-7) or ...

Phase N/A

Brisk Walking Study in Nursing Home Residents

The investigators aim to compare the effects of a 9 month brisk walking training (1 time a week or 3 times a week) on the ANS of nursing home residents.
