Perioperative Immunonutrition in Colorectal Cancer Patients Undergoing Abdominal Surgery

The immune system plays an important role in helping to kill and prevent cancers. Cells of the immune system, such as natural killer (NK) cells and T cells, do not work as well following surgery. Arginine, an amino acid, is fundamental in metabolic processes of the body. Surgery has shown ...

Phase N/A

Prehabilitation for Elective Major Abdominal Surgery

Major abdominal surgery is a great stressor to patients and causes large physiological changes, leads to tissue trauma, immobility, psychological distress and reduced quality of life. Physical capacity appears to be an important predictor for postoperative recovery after major abdominal surgery. Prehabilitation is a concept that challenges the traditional models ...

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 ...

Nutritional Perihabilitation in Older Veterans Undergoing Surgery

In year 1 of the two-part research study, an observational, prospective study of 75 Veterans preparing for elective surgery will be conducted. The purpose of this study will be to select appropriate nutrition screening and assessment tools and to employ them to characterize malnutrition prevalence and severity and establish cut-off ...

Phase N/A

Mobilization Immediate After Abdominal Surgery

There are approximately 600 000 surgeries performed each year in Sweden. Advances in surgical technique have led to a more complex surgery on patients with more serious comorbidities. This, in turn, has led to longer operations, which expose patients to longer periods of anesthesia. During anesthesia, muscle relaxant is used, ...

Phase N/A

Quadratus Lumborum Block Using Loss-of-resistance Versus Ultrasound-guided Technique

Quadratus lumborum block (QLB) is an abdominal plane block with increasing popularity. QLB is achieved by local anesthetic infiltration at the anterolateral aspect of quadratus lumborum muscle (QLB-I), or at the posterior aspect of the muscle (QLB-II), or transmuscular (QL-TM block). Ultrasound-guided technique is the usual route used for QLB ...

Phase N/A

Transpulmonary Driving Pressure and Intra-abdominal Pressure Relationship During Laparoscopic Surgery

Objective: The aim of this project is to evaluate how intra-abdominal pressure paired coupled with different ventilatory positive end-expiratory pressure levels affects the transpulmonary driving pressure during pneumoperiteneum insufflation for laparoscopic surgery. Methodology: Patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery will be included. The study will investigate the relationship between intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) ...

Phase N/A

Biomarkers in Acute High-risk AbdoMinAl Surgery

Acute high-risk abdominal surgery (AHA) is performed in hospitals worldwide. Ethiologies are heterogeneous, but overall emergency surgery carries a very high mortality rate (1)(2). In particular, emergency laparotomies performed on elderly people has a high mortality rate(3)(4). Different quality improvement programmes for that particular patient group have been suggested, but ...

Phase N/A

Standardised Perioperative Management of Patients Operated With Acute Abdominal Surgery

200-250 acute laparotomies are performed annually at NL. The operations are performed for a number of reasons, where operation due to ileus; with- or without bowel strangulation; operation for acute peritonitis due to different kinds of stomach- or bowel perforation and re-operations for complications to elective surgery are the most ...

Phase N/A

Surgery as a Treatment for Medically Intractable Epilepsy

Objective This protocol is being performed provide standard care therapy for patients with drug resistant epilepsy and to follow the therapeutic course of patients from pre-operative evaluation, through surgery, and post-operatively, and to collect prospective data on seizure outcomes following surgery to add to the body of knowledge in this ...
