Fibrinogen as an Alternative to FFP in Aortic Surgery.

Thoracoabdominal aneurysm (TAAA) repair is a major elective vascular operation associated with a large blood loss and potentially life-threatening clotting abnormalities. Theses clotting abnormalities are principally treated using fresh frozen plasma (FFP) (derived from human blood donations), the administration of which carries a number of risks including virus transmission (human ...

A Pilot Study of Bupivacaine Infusion in Abdominal Surgery

Pain in the post-operative period has been a limiting factor delaying recovery following abdominal surgery. Furthermore, it has been associated with several complications including ileus, urinary retention, delay to tolerating oral intake and enteral feeds, thrombo-embolic complications, and respiratory complications such as atelectasis and pneumonia. Diminishing pain in the post-operative ...

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 ...

Phase N/A

Stem Cells Found in the Abdominal Cavity in Humans

The purpose of this study is to determine the presence and characterization of stem cells in human peritoneal cavity. Peritoneal lavage fluid from patients who undergo elective open abdomen will be collected for this purpose. Peritoneal lavage is normally a routine part of abdominal surgical procedure and usually is discarded ...

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.

Phase

Functional Outcome After Incisional Hernia Repair: Open Versus Laparoscopic Repair

Midline incisional hernia is reported from 0,5 to 11% after abdominal operations. Discomfort, pain, body image alteration and diminished quality of life influences functional well being. Alteration in pulmonary function, risk of visceral incarceration or cutaneous complications are potential medical complications. Primary repair without mesh reinforcement is almost abandoned because ...

Phase

Safety and Efficacy of 6% Hydroxyethyl Starch (HES) Solution Versus an Electrolyte Solution in Patients Undergoing Elective Abdominal Surgery

The aim of the study is to investigate the safety of a 6% HES (Hydroxyethyl Starch) solution (Volulyte 6%) versus an electrolyte solution (Ionolyte) in patients undergoing elective abdominal surgery.

Phase

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

Bilateral Transversus Abdominis Plane Block With Exparel Verus Continuous Epidural Analgesia With Bupivacaine

The investigator goal is to compare the analgesic efficacy of TAP blocks with liposomal bupivacaine (Exparel) and continuous epidural blocks in patients who are scheduled for major lower abdominal surgery. To assess whether TAP block with Exparel is noninferior to continuous epidural analgesia on pain management, defined as noninferior for ...
