Preoperative Intravenous Iron Infusion to Reduce Post-surgical Complications: a Pilot Randomised Control Trial

Preoperative anemia is common worldwide, ranging from 25% in knee arthroplasties to 60% in colorectal malignancies. In Singapore, about a quarter (27%) of all patients have anaemia prior to operation at a main tertiary center. Currently, the rate of preoperative anemia in Singapore General Hospital (SGH) is 26.6%. This is ...

Phase

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

Quadratus Lumborum Block Using Loss-of-resistance Versus Ultrasound-guided Technique

Quadratus lumborum block (QLB) is an abdominal plane block with increasing popularity. QLB is achieved by local anesthetic infiltration at the anterolateral aspect of quadratus lumborum muscle (QLB-I), or at the posterior aspect of the muscle (QLB-II), or transmuscular (QL-TM block). Ultrasound-guided technique is the usual route used for QLB ...

Phase N/A

Mobilization Immediate After Abdominal Surgery

There are approximately 600 000 surgeries performed each year in Sweden. Advances in surgical technique have led to a more complex surgery on patients with more serious comorbidities. This, in turn, has led to longer operations, which expose patients to longer periods of anesthesia. During anesthesia, muscle relaxant is used, ...

Phase N/A

Prehabilitation for Elective Major Abdominal Surgery

Major abdominal surgery is a great stressor to patients and causes large physiological changes, leads to tissue trauma, immobility, psychological distress and reduced quality of life. Physical capacity appears to be an important predictor for postoperative recovery after major abdominal surgery. Prehabilitation is a concept that challenges the traditional models ...

Phase N/A

Assisted Fluid Management IDE Study

The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the performance of the Acumen Assisted Fluid Management (AFM) Feature in its ability to predict a subject's fluid responsiveness. Subjects enrolled in the validation study will have their fluid management decisions guided by the AFM Feature.

Phase N/A

IV Acetaminophen for Post-Operative Pain Management in Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) Population

In response to an increased focus on improving patient outcomes and satisfaction with surgical care, a growing body of clinical evidence has recently been dedicated to enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocols. These evidence-based perioperative pathways aim to optimize patients undergoing surgery in the preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative periods. ERAS ...

Phase

Precision Pain Management for Major Abdominal Surgery in Colorectal Surgery

The primary objectives of this study are to evaluate the potential for preoperative pharmacogenomics (PGx) testing to positively influence postoperative opioid use through visual analog scale (VAS) guided administration of narcotic equivalent and lower pain scores as measured by OBAS in patients undergoing major abdominal surgery.

Phase N/A

Early Mobilization Following Emergency Abdominal Surgery

Acute High-risk abdominal surgery (AHA) is associated with high mortality rates, multiple postoperative complications and prolonged duration of hospital admission. A recent study revealed very low level of physical performance in the first postoperative week in patients undergoing AHA. Furthermore the included patients who were non-independently mobilized or had low ...

Phase N/A

Abdominal Pressure Assessment Following Open Abdominal Surgery

Major abdominal surgery is associated with adverse changes in respiratory function. Anaesthesia can cause reduced vital capacity, hypoxaemia and impaired central respiratory drive, while surgical manipulation can restrict ventilation, damage the respiratory muscles and cause atelectasis. These factors interact with pre-existing respiratory disease and postoperative pain to create a significant ...
