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

Robotic Versus Laparoscopic Ventral Hernia Repair

Ventral hernias are a common disease and one-half of all individuals are born with or will acquire a ventral hernia in their lifetime. Repair of ventral hernias are associated with substantial morbidity including surgical site infection, hernia recurrence, and reoperation. Randomized controlled trials and nationwide databases have shown that minimally ...

Phase N/A

Rives Technique Versus Lichtenstein Repair for Primary Inguinal Hernia

These techniques have not been compared randomly for assessment of chronic pain, postoperative complications and recurrences

Phase N/A

Gastrointestinal Tract Recovery in Patients Undergoing Open Ventral Hernia Repair

Background: One of the most common occurrences following ventral incisional hernia repair is post-operative ileus. Post-operative ileus is a source of patient discomfort and morbidity that ultimately delays discharge from the hospital and is frequently a source of patient readmission. Prolonged length of hospital stay due to post-operative ileus increases ...

Phase N/A

Hernia-Prophylaxis in Acute Care Surgery H-PACS

Incisional hernia is a common complication in visceral surgery and varies between 11 and 26% in the general surgical population. Patients requiring emergency laparotomy are at high risk for the development of incisional hernia and fascial dehiscence. Among this population the incidence of incisional hernia in patients undergoing emergency surgery ...

Phase N/A

Hernia Surgery Urinary Retention

The purpose of this study will be to investigate whether pre-operative treatment with a selective alpha1-adrenoceptor antagonist affects the likelihood of male patients developing post-operative urinary retention following hernia repair surgery. It is also of interest to determine whether or not a well-known urological screening tool, the IPSS, can identify ...


Prediction of Postsurgical Symptomatic Outcomes With Preoperative Pessary Use

It is anticipated that this trial will define the clinical utility of routine preoperative pessary placement, and by shaping patient expectations and increasing preparedness for surgery, we anticipate improving satisfaction and quality of life. At the initial office visit baseline symptoms are evaluation with validated questionnaire. The patients' will undergo ...

Phase N/A

Effect Nitrous Oxide On Acute Postoperative Pain and Opioid Consumption and Chronic Pain After Inguinal Hernia Repair Surgery

The study is prospective and double blind. In the clinic, patients undergoing inguinal hernia surgery that meet the criteria for inclusion into the study and agreed to participate in the study will be randomized into two groups. In the first group of patients will receive Nitrous Oxide and In the ...

Phase N/A

Role of Mesh Stoma Reinforcement Technique (MSRT) in Prevention of Parastomal Hernia After Ileal Conduit Urinary Diversion

All patients will be recruited from the urology practice of the study`s investigators, Urology department of Urology and Nephrology Center (UNC), Mansoura university, Egypt. Patients will be asked to participate after the patient and physician have made a decision that ileal conduit urinary diversion of choice. Those patients meeting all ...
