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 ...

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

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.

Postpartum Opioid Prescribing Patterns and Patient Utilization

Opiate abuse is a national epidemic and has paralleled the increase in opioid prescriptions, with diversion of surplus medication playing a key contributing role. As the majority of reproductive age women in the U.S. will experience childbirth, understanding opioid prescription patterns and patient opioid utilization in the postpartum period is ...

Preoperative Intravenous Iron Infusion to Reduce Post-surgical Complications: a Pilot Randomised Control Trial

Preoperative anemia is common worldwide, ranging from 25% in knee arthroplasties to 60% in colorectal malignancies. In Singapore, about a quarter (27%) of all patients have anaemia prior to operation at a main tertiary center. Currently, the rate of preoperative anemia in Singapore General Hospital (SGH) is 26.6%. This is ...

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

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

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 ...

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

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 ...
