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 ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

Phase N/A

Enhanced Recovery After Trauma Surgery

ERAS IN TRAUMA Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) or enhanced recovery protocols (ERP) is a concept first described by Kehlet in the early 1990s .Since its introduction, ERAS protocols have been successfully used in elective gastrointestinal surgery (colorectal, hepatobiliary and gastric), and there has been widespread acceptance and implementation in ...

Phase N/A

Hemodynamic Optimization During Major Abdominal Surgery

During major abdominal surgery (i.e. cefalopancreasectomy) investigators will use a minimally hemodynamic monitoring (Flotrac Monitoring System) to guide fluid therapy; investigators will refer to a stroke volume target value obtained by a bolus of Crystalloids. After the induction of anesthesia, then each hour during surgery until the end of surgical ...

Phase N/A

BNP and Vascular Surgery

Patient's informed consent signature for adhesion at the study will be initially requested. With their acceptance, parameters will be recorded anonymously in the Case Report Form, identified by their initials and a numeric code, until hospital discharge. The parameters analyzed will be related to: preoperative evaluation: anamnesis, health general conditions, ...

Phase N/A

Post-market Prospective Evaluation of PHOTO-oxidized Bovine Pericardium in Vascular Surgery

PhotoFix is prepared from bovine pericardium, which is stabilized using a dye-mediated photo-oxidation process and sterilized using aseptic processing techniques. The primary endpoint for patients with carotid artery stenosis (CAS) undergoing carotid endarterectomies (CEA) will be rate of ipsilateral central neurologic events; the primary endpoint for all other vascular procedures ...

Phase N/A

Intraoperative Goal-directed Blood Pressure and Dexmedetomidine

The number of patients undergoing surgeries is increasing worldwide. However, some patients develop complications or even die after surgery. Perioperative organ injury is the leading cause of the unfavorable outcomes. Hypotension is not uncommon during major surgery and is highly responsible for the inadequate perfusion and organ injury. A recent ...


Bilateral Ultrasound Guided Quadratus Lumborum Versus Lumbar Epidural Block on Postoperative Analgesia and Inflammatory Response in Abdominal Surgery

This study aims at comparing the effects of bilateral ultrasound-guided quadratus lumborum block versus lumbar epidural block on postoperative analgesia and inflammatory response following major lower abdominal cancer surgery.

Phase N/A

Metabolites of Tramadol in the Postoperative Surgical Patients

The blood samples for the CYP2D6 gene polymorphism analysis will be taken from all patients included in the study. The patients will be categorized as slow (PM), normal (NM) or ultra-fast metabolizers (UM) of tramadol using analysis of the CYP2D6 phenotype. Standard laboratory findings including red blood cells, urea, creatinine, ...

Phase N/A

Comparing Local Anesthetics for Transversus Abdominis Plane (TAP) Block During Abdominally-based Free Flap for Breast Reconstruction

This study will compare the efficiency of transversus abominus plane (TAP) block using liposomal bupivacaine versus plain bupivacaine that is administered in the operating room under ultrasound guidance prior to the in patients undergoing abdominally-based free flap breast reconstruction at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
