Comparison of Intravenous Anesthetics to Volatile Anesthetics on Postoperative Cognitive Dysfunction

Post-operative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) is a fairly well-documented clinical phenomenon. Most patients will receive general anesthesia during surgery. Two groups of general anesthetics are used for this purpose. We hypothesize that the incidence of POCD is not different in patients received intravenous anesthetics only or sevoflurane (a volatile anesthetic-based general ...


Safety and Efficacy Study of Pain Shield Device to Treat Subjects Following Laparoscopic-Assisted Abdominal Surgery

The purpose of this study is to evaluate safety and efficacy of PainShield device, based on ultrasound technology, for postoperative pain relief and wound healing following a laparoscopic-assisted abdominal surgery.


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 ...


Fibrinogen as an Alternative to FFP in Aortic Surgery.

Thoracoabdominal aneurysm (TAAA) repair is a major elective vascular operation associated with a large blood loss and potentially life-threatening clotting abnormalities. Theses clotting abnormalities are principally treated using fresh frozen plasma (FFP) (derived from human blood donations), the administration of which carries a number of risks including virus transmission (human ...


Neuroprotection With Dexmedetomidine in Patients Undergoing Elective Cardiac or Abdominal Surgery (Neuprodex)

The drug Dexmedetomidine will be investigated in 72 patients (men and women) undergoing elective cardiac or abdominal surgery. The study medication will be administered perioperatively by intravenous infusion continuously (at the longest 48 h) to prevent/reduce the rate of Delirium and the incidence of postoperative cognitive deficit (POCD). A non-surgical ...


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 ...


Laparoscopic Surgery and Abdominal Compliance

Background and rationale. Abdominal laparoscopic surgery is widely used. The meet good conditions, the surgeons need a large enough workspace. Carbonic gaz is insufflated in the intraperitoneal space but limited by the induced pressure which usually must not be above 15mm mercury (Hg) because of subsequent organ failures. The relationship ...


Hemostasis Evolution During Fluid Loading in Abdominal Surgery. Effects of Fluid Choice: Saline Versus Hydroxyethyl Starch (HAEMO Study)

Fluid administration is the mainstay treatment for suspected hypovolemia during surgery, but the effects of different crystalloid and colloid solutions on outcome remain poorly explored in surgical patients. Two recent international multicenter studies (6S and CHEST studies) have shown that, compared to crystalloid solutions, the use of hydroxyethyl starch (HES) ...
