RESULTS

Found (34) clinical trials

This study is looking at a new combination of medications that, when injected or applied to the surgical wound at the time of the procedure, will control post-operative pain and reduce the need for any additional medication after the surgery.

Phase

A research study is evaluating the Ovation® Abdominal Stent Graft Platform.

Phase N/A

This study will compare stoma related cost of care and compare incidence of Peristomal skin conditions with the use of CeraPlus skin barriers.

Phase N/A

The Effect of Surgery on Central Aortic Pressure & haEmodynamics Study

Increased pulse pressure and pulse-wave velocity are recognized indices of arterial stiffness (Laurent, Boutouyrie, Asmar et al., 2001; Qiu, Winblad, Viitanen et al., 2003). An increased pulse pressure (indicative of increased central aortic pressure) is independently associated with an increased incidence of postoperative neurological and cardiac complications (Fontes, Aronson, Matthew ...

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

Comparison of Intravenous Anesthetics to Volatile Anesthetics on Postoperative Cognitive Dysfunction

Post-operative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) is a fairly well-documented clinical phenomenon. Most patients will receive general anesthesia during surgery. Two groups of general anesthetics are used for this purpose. We hypothesize that the incidence of POCD is not different in patients received intravenous anesthetics only or sevoflurane (a volatile anesthetic-based general ...

Phase

Prospective Multi-Center Evaluation of the Efficacy of Peripheral Trigger Decompression Surgery for Migraine Headaches

According to the peripheral trigger theory of migraine headaches, nociceptive inputs from irritated or compressed cranial nerve branches can lead to neurovascular changes in the brain that cause migraine headaches. Advanced treatments aimed at deactivating the peripheral trigger points can be administered to patients who have failed medical management of ...

Phase N/A

Individualized Perioperative Hemodynamic Goal-directed Therapy in Major Abdominal Surgery (iPEGASUS-trial)

Postoperative mortality in patients undergoing surgery is on average still 4% in Europe as evaluated recently in a cohort study across 28 European countries and is considered to be even higher in high risk surgery. But besides this significant risk of death, in particular moderate and severe postoperative complications, affecting ...

Phase N/A

Individualized Goal-directed Sufentanil Administration Versus Standard Therapy in Patients Undergoing Major Abdominal Surgery

Postoperative respiratory complications are the second most frequent complications after surgery, and a major burden in health care. Postoperative hypoxemia, which is one of the most meaningful factors associated with poor patient outcomes, is common after general anesthesia with rates as high as 30-50% in patients after abdominal surgery, 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 ...
