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

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

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) ...

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

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 ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Continuous Bilateral QL Analgesia After Open Abdominal Surgery

Eligible patients will be randomized 1:1 without stratification to bilateral continuous QL catheters with local anesthetic continuous infusion (QL block + IV patient-controlled analgesia group) or normal saline continuous infusion (IV patient-controlled analgesia group). In the postanesthesia care unit (PACU), patients will be given intravenous boluses of hydromorphone or fentanyl ...

Phase N/A

Paravertebral Block vs. General Anesthesia for Major Abdominal Surgery

Introduction Elderly patients are usually presented with higher risk for developing cardiopulmonary complications after general anesthesia (GA). The risk of adverse events in elderly patients increases with the combination of intraoperative fentanyl, opioid premedication and neuromuscular blockers. Bilateral paravertebral block (PVB) has been associated with favorable outcomes in patients undergoing ...

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

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 ...

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 ...
