Gradual Versus Immediate Goal-dose Enteral Nutrition in Abdominal Surgery Patients

Patients after abdominal surgery will receive enteral nutrition for 2 days, if she/he can tolerate 30% of goal-dose EN, then she/he will be randomized to Gradual or immediate Goal-dose EN group at day 3. Patients in Gradual Goal-dose EN group will receive increased calories gradually by EN and will reach ...

Phase N/A

Wound Healing Abnormalities in Major Abdominal Surgery

This clinical observational study investigates the incidence of wound healing abnormalities in patients undergoing major abdominal surgery. Second aim of the study is, if wound healing deficits may be accompanied by abnormalities in blood coagulation parameters.

Phase N/A

Fibrinogen as an Alternative to FFP in Aortic Surgery.

Thoracoabdominal aneurysm (TAAA) repair is a major elective vascular operation associated with a large blood loss and potentially life-threatening clotting abnormalities. Theses clotting abnormalities are principally treated using fresh frozen plasma (FFP) (derived from human blood donations), the administration of which carries a number of risks including virus transmission (human ...

Stem Cells Found in the Abdominal Cavity in Humans

The purpose of this study is to determine the presence and characterization of stem cells in human peritoneal cavity. Peritoneal lavage fluid from patients who undergo elective open abdomen will be collected for this purpose. Peritoneal lavage is normally a routine part of abdominal surgical procedure and usually is discarded ...

Phase N/A

Safety and Efficacy Study of Pain Shield Device to Treat Subjects Following Laparoscopic-Assisted Abdominal Surgery

The purpose of this study is to evaluate safety and efficacy of PainShield device, based on ultrasound technology, for postoperative pain relief and wound healing following a laparoscopic-assisted abdominal surgery.

Phase

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 ...

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 ...
