G-Tech Feasibility Study for Early Detection of a Post-op Ileus

Group 1: Up to 100 subjects may be consented prior to surgery who are planned to undergo gastrointestinal surgery or a planned surgery that does not involve the abdominal cavity. The post-operative course will be assessed for both clinical symptoms and for myoelectric activity for return to normal GI function ...

SANICS II Trial: Stimulation of the Autonomic Nervous System in Colorectal Surgery by Perioperative Nutrition

Postoperative ileus (POI) and anastomotic leakage (AL) are important clinical determinants of short-term morbidity and mortality following colorectal surgery. Importantly, AL is also a risk factor for local recurrence of colorectal cancer and has a significant impact on disease-free and overall survival. It is therefore believed that improving postoperative outcome ...


Acupuncture in Reducing Ileus in Patients Who Have Undergone Surgery for Colorectal Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Determine whether a phase III study of acupuncture for postoperative recovery after colorectal surgery is warranted, as defined by evidence of reduction of postoperative ileus in patients who undergo acupuncture vs sham acupuncture after segmental or subtotal colectomy with primary anastomosis for colorectal cancer. Secondary - Determine ...


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 ...


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 ...


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 ...


Electroacupuncture for Postoperative Ileus After Laparoscopic Surgery for Mid and Low Rectal Cancer

Background: Postoperative ileus (POI) remains a significant problem after colorectal surgery that adversely influences patients' recovery and prolongs hospital stay. The investigators' previous study demonstrated that electroacupuncture (EA) at Zusanli, Sanyinjiao, Hegu, and Zhigou reduces the duration of POI and hospital stay after laparoscopic resection of colonic and upper rectal ...

Phase N/A

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 ...


Does Caffeine Reduce Postoperative Bowel Paralysis After Elective Colectomy?

Postoperative bowel paralysis is common after abdominal operations, including colectomy. As a result, hospitalization may be prolonged leading to increased cost. A recent randomized controlled trial from the University of Heidelberg showed that consumption of regular black coffee after colectomy is safe and associated with a significantly faster resumption of ...

Phase N/A

Does Bowel Stimulation Before Loop Ileostomy Closure Reduce Postoperative Ileus?

Low anterior resection with total mesorectal excision is the standard operative treatment for mid and some low rectal cancers.The most dreaded and morbid complication of this procedure is anastomotic leak,with a varied incidence of 3-32%,and which can result in pelvic abscess and sepsis,re-operation,and death.The creation of a loop ileostomy is ...
