Piloting Prehabilitation Before Abdominal Surgery

Background: Frail Veterans are at increased risk for poor surgical outcomes. Although surgeons operate safely on even the oldest old, if the elder is also frail, the stress of surgery can result in significant mortality, morbidity, and institutionalization. Frailty is a clinical syndrome marked by muscle atrophy, diminished strength, decreased ...

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

Acupuncture for Postoperative Pain After Abdominal Surgery for Gynecological Diseases

Objectives To examine the efficacy and safety of electroacupuncture (EA) combined with auricular acupuncture (AA) in reducing post-operative pain in patients following abdominal surgery for gynecological diseases. Hypothesis Acupuncture is effective and safe to reduce postoperative pain during the first 5 days following surgery as compared to a sham control. ...

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

Ultrasound Guided TAP Block for Postoperative Analgesia After Major Abdominal Surgery.

The transversus abdominis plane (TAP) technique, originally described by involves injection of local anaesthetic in the plane between the internal oblique and transversus abdominis muscle layers, with the aim of anaesthetising the intercostal nerves supplying the abdominal wall. Initially, the block used surface landmarks of the triangle of Petit (latissimus ...


Impact of Caloric and Protein Adequacy on Postoperative Clinical Outcomes of Patients Undergoing Major Abdominal Surgery

The role of nutritional therapy (TN) in the surgical patient is well described in the literature and is associated with reductions in postoperative complications, length of hospital stay, and mortality. Adequate determination of caloric and protein requirements is an essential step in the TN institution, avoiding hypoalimentation and hyperalimentation. Thus, ...

Phase N/A

The Effect of Intraabdominal Saline Irrigation in Abdominal Hysterectomies

The objective of this prospective randomised clinic study is to investigate the effect of peritoneal cavity saline irrigation during abdominal hysterectomies on postoperative infectious morbidities and gastrointestinal disturbance. The participants will be randomised to either an irrigation of abdominal cavity or the control group after vaginal closure. Assignment to one ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of Pcv-aCO2 in the Fluid Treatment of Abdominal Tumor Patients After Surgery

Confirmed that Pcv-aCO2 is suitable for the guidance of early fluid therapy and the evaluation of the prognosis of patients with abnormal hemodynamics after abdominal tumor surgery, and is expected to be a new monitoring index to improve the therapeutic efficacy of this kind of patients. Pcv-aCO2 effectively reflected the ...

Phase N/A

Hemostasis Evolution During Fluid Loading in Abdominal Surgery. Effects of Fluid Choice: Saline Versus Hydroxyethyl Starch (HAEMO 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) ...
