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

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 ...

Phase N/A

Peri-operative Expression Analysis of Pancreatic Stone Protein in a Surgical Study Population

The purpose of this study is to analyze the peri-operative expression of pancreatic stone protein and pancreatitis-associated protein in surgical patients following major abdominal surgery by blood samples.

Phase N/A

Skin Perfusion After Abdominal Surgery

Introduction Wound healing problems after surgery are a stressful experience for patients. Wound dressing changes are often on a daily basis and can cause considerable discomfort to the patient as these are often painful. Wound healing problems can lead to complications like wound infection, hernia formation, wound rupture or even ...

Phase N/A

Postoperative Pulmonary Complications in Major Abdominal Surgery

PRIMARY AIM: The primary aim of the study is to evaluate the incidence and characteristics of postoperative pulmonary complications (PPC) in patients undergoing major abdominal surgery. SECONDARY AIM: The secondary aim of the study is to define the incidence of postoperative infections, cardiovascular complications, postoperative residual curarization (PORC), duration of ...

Phase N/A

Natural Orifice Translumenal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES): Laparoscopic Assisted Transvaginal Ventral Hernia Repair

This is a prospective chart review/data collection study of natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) for ventral hernia repair, that will include questionnaires administered throughout the study. Subjects enrolled will be those intending to have a transvaginal NOTES ventral hernia repair. Data will be collected and reviewed through 12 months ...

Phase N/A

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

Flux Measurement and Outcome in Major Abdominal Surgery

Surgical resection is the primary therapy for a variety of benign and malignant diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. Advances in the perioperative care surgical technique and imaging modalities have significantly improved the outcome of patients with major abdominal resections within the past three decades. However, the incidence of postoperative complications ...

Phase N/A

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 ...
