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 ...

IV Acetaminophen for Post-Operative Pain Management in Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) Population

In response to an increased focus on improving patient outcomes and satisfaction with surgical care, a growing body of clinical evidence has recently been dedicated to enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocols. These evidence-based perioperative pathways aim to optimize patients undergoing surgery in the preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative periods. ERAS ...

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 ...

Can the Use of Ear Plugs and Eye Masks Help to Improve Sleep Quality After Major Abdominal Surgery?

The importance of good sleep has been gaining interest in critically ill patients as poor sleep has been found to be associated with increased rates of delirium, non-invasive ventilation failure, and may serve as a stressor to patients. The use of earplugs and eye masks to improve sleep quality has ...

Phase N/A

Abdominal Pressure Assessment Following Open Abdominal Surgery

Major abdominal surgery is associated with adverse changes in respiratory function. Anaesthesia can cause reduced vital capacity, hypoxaemia and impaired central respiratory drive, while surgical manipulation can restrict ventilation, damage the respiratory muscles and cause atelectasis. These factors interact with pre-existing respiratory disease and postoperative pain to create a significant ...

Safety and Efficacy of D-PLEX in the Prevention of Post Abdominal Surgery Incisional Infection

D-PLEX is a new formulation of extended controlled release of Doxycycline in the applied area for about 30 days. This study is aimed to assess the safety and efficacy of D-PLEX in prevention of post abdominal surgery incisional infection. Eligible and willing subjects will be randomly divided, in a single-blinded ...

Fatigue and QoL Among Gastric Cancer Patients Undergoing Abdominal Surgery

Background: Cancer-related fatigue (CRF), one of the indicators of QoL, is one of the most common side effects of cancer and its treatment. However, the pathophysiological mechanisms involved in CRF among cancer patients are not completely understood. Therefore, more in-depth researches on CRF of surgical patients suffering from gastric cancer ...

The Efficacy and Security of the Small Stitch Technique in Emergency Surgery

The closure of laparotomy is one of the most important challenges facing the surgeon. The classic technique of wall closure is the Large Stitch technique that uses monofilament double-strand sutures with a SL/WL (Suture Lengh/Wound Lengh) 4:1 ratio, with a distance to the alba line and between each stitch of ...
