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

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 ...

Perioperative Immunonutrition in Colorectal Cancer Patients Undergoing Abdominal Surgery

The immune system plays an important role in helping to kill and prevent cancers. Cells of the immune system, such as natural killer (NK) cells and T cells, do not work as well following surgery. Arginine, an amino acid, is fundamental in metabolic processes of the body. Surgery has shown ...

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

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

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

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 ...

Phase

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 ...
