Trial Investigating Alvimopan for Enhanced Gastrointestinal Recovery After Cytoreductive Surgery and Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy

Cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) is a surgical procedure to treat cancer that has spread to the lining of the abdominal cavity (peritoneal metastases). It is associated with a prolonged time for return of bowel function after surgery. Alvimopan is a drug used to speed up the ...

Optimizing the Previs Device for Prediction of Postoperative Ileus

Following major abdominal surgery, up to 30% of patients develop a poorly understood condition known as ileus. When ileus occurs, the bowels shut down and patients often develop abdominal dissension, nausea, vomiting, and even more serious complications. Because this condition does not develop until many days after surgery has been ...

Caffeinated Gum to Prevent Post-Operative Ileus: A Prospective Randomized Placebo-controlled Trial

This is a randomized, three-arm, double-blind, placebo-controlled, Phase III clinical trial of caffeinated gum and sugar-less gum in adult patients after an abdominal procedure. Patients will be randomized to receive placebo, sugar-less gum or caffeinated gum three times daily for 30 minutes starting the day following surgery until discharge or ...

Stimulation of the Efferent Loop Before Loop Ileostomy Closure

Stimulation was performed 3 weeks prior to the ileostomy closure using 500 cc of a thickening substance (saline and nutritional thickener) through the efferent limb.

Anti-inflammatory Effect of Peroperative Stimulation of the Vagus Nerve

Hypothesis Electrical stimulation of the abdominal vagus nerve has anti-inflammatory effects which lead to a faster postoperative recovery after abdominal surgery. Aims In the present study, the investigators want evaluate the anti-inflammatory effect of peroperative electrical stimulation of the vagus nerve. In addition, the investigators want to determine whether vagus ...

Prucalopride in Postoperative Ileus

Postoperative ileus (POI) refers to the period of gut dysmotility that occurs after abdominal surgery. Patients with POI are unable to eat, suffer ongoing nausea and vomiting, are unable to open their bowels and have a prolonged hospital stay. Research at ADHB shows that 25% of patients will have a ...

Multimodal Narcotic Limited Perioperative Pain Control With Colorectal Surgery

Postoperative ileus is a well-known problem for patients who have undergone a colorectal procedure. It is manifested as abdominal distension, accumulation of gas and fluid within the bowels and delayed bowel function (flatus or defecation). It is estimated that with traditional perioperative care for open colon resection postoperative ileus can ...

Phase

Anti-inflammatory Effect of Pre-operative Stimulation of the Cholinergic Anti-Inflammatory Pathway

Hypothesis Prucalopride can mimic electrical stimulation of the abdominal vagus nerve and has an anti-inflammatory effect. Aims In the present pilot study, the investigators want to evaluate the anti-inflammatory effect of prucalopride. The following aims are formulated: to show that prucalopride has a similar inflammatory effect as abdominal vagus nerve ...

Intravenous Nutrition in Hospitalized Patients: Comparison of Two Oils

Until recently, Intralipid, a soybean oil-based lipid emulsion, has been the only available lipid for intravenous use in Canada. In 2010, ClinOleic, a new, predominantly olive oil based emulsion, has been approved by Health Canada as an alternative lipid. There is an increasing need for hospitals to do quality-assurance studies ...

Effect of Chewing Gum on Post-operative Ileus (GUMPI)

The patients undergoing spine surgery are at risk of developing post-operative ileus, which will lengthen the hospital stay and cause gastrointestinal distress in patients. Post-operative sham feeding in form of chewing a gum seems to increase the functionality of gastro-intestinal tract earlier in patients who have undergone gastro-intestinal and gynecological ...
