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

Piloting Prehabilitation Before Abdominal Surgery

Background: Frail Veterans are at increased risk for poor surgical outcomes. Although surgeons operate safely on even the oldest old, if the elder is also frail, the stress of surgery can result in significant mortality, morbidity, and institutionalization. Frailty is a clinical syndrome marked by muscle atrophy, diminished strength, decreased ...

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

Gradual Versus Immediate Goal-dose Enteral Nutrition in Abdominal Surgery Patients

Patients after abdominal surgery will receive enteral nutrition for 2 days, if she/he can tolerate 30% of goal-dose EN, then she/he will be randomized to Gradual or immediate Goal-dose EN group at day 3. Patients in Gradual Goal-dose EN group will receive increased calories gradually by EN and will reach ...

Phase N/A

Perioperative Endothelial Dysfunction in Patients Undergoing Major Acute Abdominal Surgery

The aim of the clinical study is: to examine the association between postoperative endothelial function, indirectly measured by reactive hyperemia index, and major adverse cardiovascular events including myocardial injury and cardiac death within 30, 90 and 365 days of acute abdominal surgery. to examine the association between postoperative endothelial function, ...

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.

Phase

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

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 ...

Phase

Precision Pain Management for Major Abdominal Surgery in Colorectal Surgery

The primary objectives of this study are to evaluate the potential for preoperative pharmacogenomics (PGx) testing to positively influence postoperative opioid use through visual analog scale (VAS) guided administration of narcotic equivalent and lower pain scores as measured by OBAS in patients undergoing major abdominal surgery.

Phase N/A

Influence of Open and Laparoscopic Abdominal Surgery Involving the Intestinal Tract on Serum 1 3- -D-Glucan (BDG) Values

Candida species are both known to colonize physiologically mucosal surfaces in the human body without causing signs or symptoms of infection and to cause a wide variety of diseases, including mucocutaneous infections and potentially fatal invasive infections of the bloodstream or organs. Throughout the past decades, invasive fungal infections (IFIs) ...
