Found (63) clinical trials

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

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

Phase N/A

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.


Attenuating The Post-Operative Insulin Resistance And Promoting Protein Anabolism

Major surgery results in a stress- induced catabolic response, marked by post-operative insulin resistance, hyperglycemia and loss of body protein, which is associated with increased morbidity, mortality and adverse outcomes. There has been a great deal of research on different approaches to optimize post-operative insulin sensitivity including hormonal and nutritional ...

Phase N/A

Pre-operative Carbohydrate Drink to Preserve Peri-operative Insulin Sensitivity

Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) pathways include multiple evidence-based interventions delivered throughout the peri-operative period that aim to attenuate the surgical stress response and support rapid physiologic and functional recovery.A key element of the ERAS pathway is the administration of a clear carbohydrate-rich beverage 2-3 h before surgery in order ...

Phase N/A

Cine-magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Detecting Intra Abdominal Adhesions

Official title: Sensitivity and predictive value of functional cine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) detecting intra-abdominal adhesions Background Adhesions are a frequent problem in abdominal surgery. The formation of adhesions is part of a normal wound healing. However in some patients adhesions cause severe complications such as chronic pain, obstruction and ...

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 ...


Wound Healing Abnormalities in Major Abdominal Surgery

This clinical observational study investigates the incidence of wound healing abnormalities in patients undergoing major abdominal surgery. Second aim of the study is, if wound healing deficits may be accompanied by abnormalities in blood coagulation parameters.

Phase N/A

Safety and Efficacy Study of Pain Shield Device to Treat Subjects Following Laparoscopic-Assisted Abdominal Surgery

The purpose of this study is to evaluate safety and efficacy of PainShield device, based on ultrasound technology, for postoperative pain relief and wound healing following a laparoscopic-assisted abdominal surgery.


Preemptive Use of the Nicotine Patch for Postoperative Pain Relief After Open Abdominal Surgery

Study patients include nonsmokers aged 18-75 undergoing open abdominal wall surgery under general anesthesia. If the patient smokes, receives a regional anesthetic such as an epidural, or is pregnant, then he/she is excluded from the study. There are two randomized study groups. Group B receives a seven-milligram transdermal patch and ...
