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

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

The Effect of Abdominal Binder Use on Postoperative Pain and Mobility in Patients Undergoing Pelvic Surgery

To determine the effect of post-operative abdominal binder usage on total narcotic usage after undergoing surgery. To determine if abdominal binder usage results in decreased visual analog scale (VAS) pain scores and shorter time to first ambulation post operatively.

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

Early Mobilization Following Emergency Abdominal Surgery

Acute High-risk abdominal surgery (AHA) is associated with high mortality rates, multiple postoperative complications and prolonged duration of hospital admission. A recent study revealed very low level of physical performance in the first postoperative week in patients undergoing AHA. Furthermore the included patients who were non-independently mobilized or had low ...

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 ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

NSS-2 BRIDGE Device in Post-Operative Pain Management

Potential subjects (from both the prospective interventional and control groups) will be recruited in the pre-surgical clinic of Dr. David Bartlett once they are scheduled for major abdominal surgery. Patients will be asked for their interest in pursuing a research study that involves wearing a percutaneous, auricular field stimulator for ...

Phase N/A

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 ...
