Deep Brain Stimulation of the Anterior Nucleus of the Thalamus in Epilepsy

The main objective of the study is twofold: Assess the clinical efficacy of DBS on epilepsy according to their number and severity at 1 year follow up. Perform a cost-effectiveness analysis from the perspective of Medicare at 1 and 2 years. The study hypothesis is that thalamic DBS (neurostimulation of ...

Assisted Fluid Management IDE Study

The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the performance of the Acumen Assisted Fluid Management (AFM) Feature in its ability to predict a subject's fluid responsiveness. Subjects enrolled in the validation study will have their fluid management decisions guided by the AFM Feature.

Phase N/A

Precision Pain Management for Major Abdominal Surgery in Colorectal Surgery

The primary objectives of this study are to evaluate the potential for preoperative pharmacogenomics (PGx) testing to positively influence postoperative opioid use through visual analog scale (VAS) guided administration of narcotic equivalent and lower pain scores as measured by OBAS in patients undergoing major abdominal surgery.

Phase N/A

Comparison of Intravenous Anesthetics to Volatile Anesthetics on Postoperative Cognitive Dysfunction

Post-operative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) is a fairly well-documented clinical phenomenon. Most patients will receive general anesthesia during surgery. Two groups of general anesthetics are used for this purpose. We hypothesize that the incidence of POCD is not different in patients received intravenous anesthetics only or sevoflurane (a volatile anesthetic-based general ...

Phase

Neuroprotection With Dexmedetomidine in Patients Undergoing Elective Cardiac or Abdominal Surgery (Neuprodex)

The drug Dexmedetomidine will be investigated in 72 patients (men and women) undergoing elective cardiac or abdominal surgery. The study medication will be administered perioperatively by intravenous infusion continuously (at the longest 48 h) to prevent/reduce the rate of Delirium and the incidence of postoperative cognitive deficit (POCD). A non-surgical ...

Intrathecal Dexmedetomidine Versus Fentanyl With Bupivacaine in Children Undergoing Major Abdominal Cancer Surgery

After obtaining approval of the local ethics committee of South Egypt Cancer Institute, Assiut University, Assiut, Egypt, and parent's written informed consent, a randomized double -blinded prospective study will be conducted on (60) pediatric patients. After applying standard monitors; Pulse oximetry (Spo2), Noninvasive arterial blood pressure, Electrocardiography (ECG), pre-medication with ...

Phase

Prospective Multi-Center Evaluation of the Efficacy of Peripheral Trigger Decompression Surgery for Migraine Headaches

According to the peripheral trigger theory of migraine headaches, nociceptive inputs from irritated or compressed cranial nerve branches can lead to neurovascular changes in the brain that cause migraine headaches. Advanced treatments aimed at deactivating the peripheral trigger points can be administered to patients who have failed medical management of ...

Phase N/A

Quadratus Lumborum Block Using Loss-of-resistance Versus Ultrasound-guided Technique

Quadratus lumborum block (QLB) is an abdominal plane block with increasing popularity. QLB is achieved by local anesthetic infiltration at the anterolateral aspect of quadratus lumborum muscle (QLB-I), or at the posterior aspect of the muscle (QLB-II), or transmuscular (QL-TM block). Ultrasound-guided technique is the usual route used for QLB ...

Influence of Open and Laparoscopic Abdominal Surgery Involving the Intestinal Tract on Serum 1 3- -D-Glucan (BDG) Values

Candida species are both known to colonize physiologically mucosal surfaces in the human body without causing signs or symptoms of infection and to cause a wide variety of diseases, including mucocutaneous infections and potentially fatal invasive infections of the bloodstream or organs. Throughout the past decades, invasive fungal infections (IFIs) ...

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 ...
