Phase N/A

A research study is evaluating the Ovation® Abdominal Stent Graft Platform.

Phase N/A

Attenuating The Post-Operative Insulin Resistance And Promoting Protein Anabolism

Major surgery results in a stress- induced catabolic response, marked by post-operative insulin resistance, hyperglycemia and loss of body protein, which is associated with increased morbidity, mortality and adverse outcomes. There has been a great deal of research on different approaches to optimize post-operative insulin sensitivity including hormonal and nutritional ...

Phase N/A

Pre-operative Carbohydrate Drink to Preserve Peri-operative Insulin Sensitivity

Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) pathways include multiple evidence-based interventions delivered throughout the peri-operative period that aim to attenuate the surgical stress response and support rapid physiologic and functional recovery.A key element of the ERAS pathway is the administration of a clear carbohydrate-rich beverage 2-3 h before surgery in order ...

Phase N/A

Cine-magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Detecting Intra Abdominal Adhesions

Official title: Sensitivity and predictive value of functional cine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) detecting intra-abdominal adhesions Background Adhesions are a frequent problem in abdominal surgery. The formation of adhesions is part of a normal wound healing. However in some patients adhesions cause severe complications such as chronic pain, obstruction and ...

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

Preemptive Use of the Nicotine Patch for Postoperative Pain Relief After Open Abdominal Surgery

Study patients include nonsmokers aged 18-75 undergoing open abdominal wall surgery under general anesthesia. If the patient smokes, receives a regional anesthetic such as an epidural, or is pregnant, then he/she is excluded from the study. There are two randomized study groups. Group B receives a seven-milligram transdermal patch and ...

Phase N/A

Use of Wearable Activity Tracker in Elderly Undergoing Abdominal Surgery

This is a randomized, controlled, single center trial comparing the use of activity tracker with and without automatic feedback in improving postoperative mobility of elderly patients undergoing abdominal surgery. Selected subjects will be randomized into treatment and control groups in a ratio of 1:1. Patients will be randomized upon enrollment ...

Phase N/A

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

Postpartum Opioid Prescribing Patterns and Patient Utilization

Opiate abuse is a national epidemic and has paralleled the increase in opioid prescriptions, with diversion of surplus medication playing a key contributing role. As the majority of reproductive age women in the U.S. will experience childbirth, understanding opioid prescription patterns and patient opioid utilization in the postpartum period is ...
