A Comparison of Exparel to Bupivacaine in TAP Block for Abdominal Gynecologic Surgery

The proposed pilot study is evaluating the use of Exparel in an anesthesia protocol for patients undergoing major lower abdominal gynecologic surgery. Exparel is a formulation of liposomal bupivicaine that is reputed to have a much longer duration of action compares to bupivacaine. Exparel has been originally demonstrated to be ...


S1316 Surgery or Non-Surgical Management in Treating Patients With Intra-Abdominal Cancer and Bowel Obstruction

This partially randomized clinical trial studies surgery or non-surgical management in treating patients with intra-abdominal cancer and bowel obstruction. Bowel obstruction is a common problem for advanced cancer patients and can negatively affect quality of life. It is not yet known whether surgery or non-surgical management is the best treatment ...


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 ...

Perform a cost-effectiveness analysis from the perspective of Medicare at 1 and 2 years. The study hypothesis is that thalamic DBS (neurostimulation of ...


The Effect of Surgery on Central Aortic Pressure & haEmodynamics Study

Increased pulse pressure and pulse-wave velocity are recognized indices of arterial stiffness (Laurent, Boutouyrie, Asmar et al., 2001; Qiu, Winblad, Viitanen et al., 2003). An increased pulse pressure (indicative of increased central aortic pressure) is independently associated with an increased incidence of postoperative neurological and cardiac complications (Fontes, Aronson, Matthew ...
