Cardiac Pulmonary and Diaphragm Sonography for the Early Diagnosis of the Different Etiologies Underlying Failure of Weaning From Mechanical Ventilation

Weaning patients off ventilation in an ICU is sometimes difficult, because of three major inter-related etiologies: impaired lung, heart and diaphragm function. In this context, ultrasonography during tests to wean patients off ventilation could make it possible to diagnose cardiac dysfunction, a loss of pulmonary aeration or diaphragm dysfunction and ...

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

The Impact of Focused Transthoracic Echocardiography in Urgent Abdominal Surgery for Septic Patients

Often sepsis remains undiagnosed at the very beginning because of the concentration to the surgical pathology in perioperative period. This results in unacceptably high mortality. The investigators hypothesize that extended hemodynamic monitoring by focused echocardiography will allow early detection of hemodynamic instability, which cannot be clinically diagnosed yet. The goals ...

Phase N/A

Can Biomarkers Aid in the Prediction of Postoperative Pain and Circulatory Instability After Major Abdominal Surgery?

Patients undergoing major surgery are exposed to extensive damage of tissues, which induces widespread activation of the inflammatory system, called 'systemic inflammatory response syndrome' (SIRS).This activation of the inflammatory system may induce instability of the heart and respiration in the postoperative period. The degree of physiologic response to postoperative SIRS ...

Phase N/A

CTA for Internal Herniation After RYGB Surgery

Introduction: Morbid obesity, defined as a body mass index (BMI) of over 40 kg/m2, is globally an imminent health threat. Conservative therapies do often not yield the desired result. Bariatric surgery includes several interventions that are performed on patients with morbid obesity, like gastric bypass surgery. The number of bariatric ...

Phase N/A

Automatic Oxygen Administration After Major Abdominal and Thoracic Surgery

The aim of the study is to assess the use feasibility of the FreeO2 system so as to deliver automatically oxygen in the post anesthesia care unit in a patient population admitted for major abdominal and thoracic surgery. The investigators' hypothesis is that FreeO2 system will provide a better control ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Sleep Quality on Melatonin Levels and Inflammatory Response After Major Abdominal Surgery

This study is going to be conducted in accordance with the Helsinki Declaration and has been approved by Eskisehir Osmangazi University Ethics Committee. Forty consecutive patients, aged 18-65, who will undergo elective major abdominal operations will be enrolled in the study after obtaining informed consent. All patients will receive adequate ...

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 ...

Phase N/A

Fluid Loading in Abdominal Surgery: Saline Versus Hydroxyethyl Starch (FLASH Study)

Fluid administration is the mainstay treatment for suspected hypovolemia during surgery, but the effects of different crystalloid and colloid solutions on outcome remain poorly explored in surgical patients. Two recent international multicenter studies (6S and CHEST studies) have shown that, compared to crystalloid solutions, the use of hydroxyethyl starch (HES) ...

Phase

Skin Perfusion After Abdominal Surgery

Introduction Wound healing problems after surgery are a stressful experience for patients. Wound dressing changes are often on a daily basis and can cause considerable discomfort to the patient as these are often painful. Wound healing problems can lead to complications like wound infection, hernia formation, wound rupture or even ...
