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

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

Development of a Patient-Reported Outcome Measure to Assess Recovery After Abdominal Surgery

OBJECTIVE To develop a comprehensive, conceptually relevant and psychometrically sound PRO measure to assess recovery after abdominal surgery. OUTLINE Phase 1(Conceptual framework and item generation): Semi-structured interviews focusing on patient lived experiences after abdominal surgery are currently being conducted to derive the "final conceptual framework of recovery after abdominal surgery". ...

Phase N/A

Morbimortality in Older Patients Undergoing Urgent Abdominal Surgery

the investigor will register the morbimotality after 6 months of follow up, in patient older than 65 year old using the CRISTAL score modify, undergoing abdominal surgery. The measure the investigators are using are: Barthel scale, Frail score, Mininutritional score, Clavien-Dindo modify, frailty. The objective of the study is to ...

Phase N/A

Perioperative Endothelial Dysfunction in Patients Undergoing Major Acute Abdominal Surgery

The aim of the clinical study is: to examine the association between postoperative endothelial function, indirectly measured by reactive hyperemia index, and major adverse cardiovascular events including myocardial injury and cardiac death within 30, 90 and 365 days of acute abdominal surgery. to examine the association between postoperative endothelial function, ...

Phase N/A

Postpartum Opioid Prescribing Patterns and Patient Utilization

Opiate abuse is a national epidemic and has paralleled the increase in opioid prescriptions, with diversion of surplus medication playing a key contributing role. As the majority of reproductive age women in the U.S. will experience childbirth, understanding opioid prescription patterns and patient opioid utilization in the postpartum period is ...

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 ...

Phase N/A

Cardiac Pulmonary and Diaphragm Sonography for the Early Diagnosis of the Different Etiologies Underlying Failure of Weaning From Mechanical Ventilation

Weaning patients off ventilation in an ICU is sometimes difficult, because of three major inter-related etiologies: impaired lung, heart and diaphragm function. In this context, ultrasonography during tests to wean patients off ventilation could make it possible to diagnose cardiac dysfunction, a loss of pulmonary aeration or diaphragm dysfunction and ...

Phase N/A

Can Biomarkers Aid in the Prediction of Postoperative Pain and Circulatory Instability After Major Abdominal Surgery?

Patients undergoing major surgery are exposed to extensive damage of tissues, which induces widespread activation of the inflammatory system, called 'systemic inflammatory response syndrome' (SIRS).This activation of the inflammatory system may induce instability of the heart and respiration in the postoperative period. The degree of physiologic response to postoperative SIRS ...
