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

Comparison of Intravenous Anesthetics to Volatile Anesthetics on Postoperative Cognitive Dysfunction

Post-operative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) is a fairly well-documented clinical phenomenon. Most patients will receive general anesthesia during surgery. Two groups of general anesthetics are used for this purpose. We hypothesize that the incidence of POCD is not different in patients received intravenous anesthetics only or sevoflurane (a volatile anesthetic-based general ...

Functional Outcome After Incisional Hernia Repair: Open Versus Laparoscopic Repair

Midline incisional hernia is reported from 0,5 to 11% after abdominal operations. Discomfort, pain, body image alteration and diminished quality of life influences functional well being. Alteration in pulmonary function, risk of visceral incarceration or cutaneous complications are potential medical complications. Primary repair without mesh reinforcement is almost abandoned because ...

Effect of PEP on Oxygen Saturation and Carbon Dioxide After Abdominal Surgery

Background Patients who have undergone thoracic and abdominal surgery receive lung atelectases after surgery. This in turn leads to poorer oxygenation, longer healing time and can contribute to increased risk of complications. In order to counteract atelectasis, patients are instructed by a physiotherapist to take deep inspiratory breaths and expire ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of Low Pressure Pneumoperitoneum in Bariatric Surgery (ELOPES Study)

This will be a prospective study in patients aged between 18 and 70 years old who have already been screened and planned for elective bariatric surgery. In bariatric surgery, a large portion of the stomach will be removed. Pneumoperitoneum is also known as the abdominal pressure which will be the ...

Individualized Perioperative Hemodynamic Goal-directed Therapy in Major Abdominal Surgery (iPEGASUS-trial)

Postoperative mortality in patients undergoing surgery is on average still 4% in Europe as evaluated recently in a cohort study across 28 European countries and is considered to be even higher in high risk surgery. But besides this significant risk of death, in particular moderate and severe postoperative complications, affecting ...

Phase N/A

Nutritional Perihabilitation in Older Veterans Undergoing Surgery

In year 1 of the two-part research study, an observational, prospective study of 75 Veterans preparing for elective surgery will be conducted. The purpose of this study will be to select appropriate nutrition screening and assessment tools and to employ them to characterize malnutrition prevalence and severity and establish cut-off ...

Phase N/A

Use of Wearable Activity Tracker in Elderly Undergoing Abdominal Surgery

This is a randomized, controlled, single center trial comparing the use of activity tracker with and without automatic feedback in improving postoperative mobility of elderly patients undergoing abdominal surgery. Selected subjects will be randomized into treatment and control groups in a ratio of 1:1. Patients will be randomized upon enrollment ...

Phase N/A

Peritoneal Bridging in Laparoscopic Ventral Hernia Repair

Background Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (VHR) has become a well-established technique during the last decade. The repair is usually performed by reducing the contents in the hernia sac from the abdominal cavity and then covering the defect from the inside with a mesh, i.e. Intraperitoneal Onlay Mesh (IPOM). This means ...
