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

Prevalence of Sarcopenia and Undernutrition in Patients With Cirrhosis and Abdominal Hernia

Sarcopenia is a common condition in patients with cirrhosis, with a prevalence of around 50%. It is unknown if the presence of sarcopenia may influence the prevalence of abdominal hernias in this group of patients. Clinical, nutritional and radiological evaluation will be performed in two groups of cirrhotic patients to ...

Phase N/A

Minimally Invasive Surgery of the Gastro-esophageal Junction

This study will assess short and long term outcomes of individuals undergoing minimally invasive surgery of the gastro-esophageal junction (MISGEJ). Patients will respond to questionnaires on an annual basis evaluating quality of life and functionality following MISGEJ. Hospital charts will also be reviewed on an annual basis to assess patient ...

Phase N/A

Genetic Analysis of Congenital Diaphragmatic Disorders

The purpose of this study is to understand the genetic causes of congenital diaphragmatic disorders (CDD), namely congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH), eventration and hiatal hernia. Specifically, the investigators plan to: Ascertain informative families and sporadic cases with congenital diaphragmatic disorders and obtain appropriate phenotypic data and genetic material (peripheral blood ...

Phase N/A

Use of Biopsies of Abdominal Subcutaneous Fat to Study the Role of the Activation of Endocannabinoid 1 Receptors (CB1R) on Adipocyte Glucolipid Metabolism

Obesity is associated with hyperactivation of the endocannabinoid system, and its inhibition by the administration of CB1 receptor (CB1R) antagonists, leads to a decrease in food intake, weight loss and an improvement in metabolic parameters. Even though the reduction in food intake following central CB1R inactivation seems to be the ...

Phase N/A

Analysis of in Vitro Biological Reaction of Diaphragmatic Prothesis When Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) Repair

In case of CDH, the incomplete development of a part of the diaphragm allows abdominal viscera to herniate into thorax cavity during fetal development and impaired lung and heart development. After birth, CDH patients who survived thanks to an active reanimation management undergo diaphragmatic repair. In case of large defect, ...

Phase N/A

Diaphragmatic Hernia Research & Exploration Advancing Molecular Science

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a birth defect that occurs when the diaphragm (thin sheet of muscle that separates the abdomen from the chest) does not form properly. When an opening is present in the diaphragm, organs that are normally in the abdomen can be pushed (herniated) through the opening ...

Phase N/A

Observational Study to Evaluate Ventral Incisional Hernia Repair Using a Biologic Mesh (Cook Biodesign)

Prior to their scheduled surgery, the patient will be consented and will complete a brief quality of life survey. They will also be asked some questions about their medical history that pertain to the study, such as current/ past abdominal infections and surgeries, history of the hernia, comorbidities, etc. During ...

Phase N/A

An Efficiency/Safety Study of Surgical Tissue Glue to Treat Inguinal Hernias

Prospective, multicenter, observational registry to collect data of laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair using surgical tissue glue fixation. The objective is to determine the prevalence of chronic pain at 1 year.

Phase N/A

Clinical Effects of Ozone Therapy in Cervical Disc Hernia

This is a retrospective, single-center study that is going to be conducted from November 2013 to May 2016 on patients visiting the pain clinic of the hospital who were treated with Ozone-oxygen therapy for cervical discogenic or radicular pain. Data collected from medical record forms and electronic medical record system ...
