RESULTS

Found (13) clinical trials

This study will compare stoma related cost of care and compare incidence of Peristomal skin conditions with the use of CeraPlus skin barriers.

Phase N/A

A research study is evaluating the Ovation® Abdominal Stent Graft Platform.

Phase N/A

Attenuating The Post-Operative Insulin Resistance And Promoting Protein Anabolism

Major surgery results in a stress- induced catabolic response, marked by post-operative insulin resistance, hyperglycemia and loss of body protein, which is associated with increased morbidity, mortality and adverse outcomes. There has been a great deal of research on different approaches to optimize post-operative insulin sensitivity including hormonal and nutritional ...

Phase N/A

Pre-operative Carbohydrate Drink to Preserve Peri-operative Insulin Sensitivity

Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) pathways include multiple evidence-based interventions delivered throughout the peri-operative period that aim to attenuate the surgical stress response and support rapid physiologic and functional recovery.A key element of the ERAS pathway is the administration of a clear carbohydrate-rich beverage 2-3 h before surgery in order ...

Phase N/A

Cine-magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Detecting Intra Abdominal Adhesions

Official title: Sensitivity and predictive value of functional cine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) detecting intra-abdominal adhesions Background: Adhesions are a frequent problem in abdominal surgery. The formation of adhesions is part of a normal wound healing. However in some patients adhesions cause severe complications such as chronic pain, obstruction and ...

Phase N/A

Should Prosthetic Repair of Incisional Abdominal Hernias be Drain or Not?

Between 3 to 20% of patients who received a midline laparotomy will develop an incisional hernia. Primary suture of the defect is associated with a recurrence rate between 25 and 50%.Mesh repair is superior with regard to the recurrence (12-20%), but early postoperative complications include infections, hematomas and seromas. Some ...

Phase N/A

Stem Cells Found in the Abdominal Cavity in Humans

The purpose of this study is to determine the presence and characterization of stem cells in human peritoneal cavity. Peritoneal lavage fluid from patients who undergo elective open abdomen will be collected for this purpose. Peritoneal lavage is normally a routine part of abdominal surgical procedure and usually is discarded ...

Phase N/A

Wound Healing Abnormalities in Major Abdominal Surgery

This clinical observational study investigates the incidence of wound healing abnormalities in patients undergoing major abdominal surgery. Second aim of the study is, if wound healing deficits may be accompanied by abnormalities in blood coagulation parameters.

Phase N/A

Preemptive Use of the Nicotine Patch for Postoperative Pain Relief After Open Abdominal Surgery

Study patients include nonsmokers aged 18-75 undergoing open abdominal wall surgery under general anesthesia. If the patient smokes, receives a regional anesthetic such as an epidural, or is pregnant, then he/she is excluded from the study. There are two randomized study groups. Group B receives a seven-milligram transdermal patch and ...

Phase N/A

Laparotomy Versus Percutaneous Puncture in Patients With Abdominal Compartment Syndrome During Acute Pancreatitis

We anticipated that decompressive laparotomy with temporary abdominal closure, beside all potentially negative side effects that early open surgery carries in patients with acute pancreatitis, results in decrease of overall mortality and major morbidity. The DECOMPRESS study is designed to compare effects of decompressive laparotomy with temporary abdominal closure and ...
