Nutritional Perihabilitation in Older Veterans Undergoing Surgery

In year 1 of the two-part research study, an observational, prospective study of 75 Veterans preparing for elective surgery will be conducted. The purpose of this study will be to select appropriate nutrition screening and assessment tools and to employ them to characterize malnutrition prevalence and severity and establish cut-off ...

S1316 Surgery or Non-Surgical Management in Treating Patients With Intra-Abdominal Cancer and Bowel Obstruction

This partially randomized clinical trial studies surgery or non-surgical management in treating patients with intra-abdominal cancer and bowel obstruction. Bowel obstruction is a common problem for advanced cancer patients and can negatively affect quality of life. It is not yet known whether surgery or non-surgical management is the best treatment ...

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 ...

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 ...

Post-market Prospective Evaluation of PHOTO-oxidized Bovine Pericardium in Vascular Surgery

PhotoFix is prepared from bovine pericardium, which is stabilized using a dye-mediated photo-oxidation process and sterilized using aseptic processing techniques. The primary endpoint for patients with carotid artery stenosis (CAS) undergoing carotid endarterectomies (CEA) will be rate of ipsilateral central neurologic events; the primary endpoint for all other vascular procedures ...

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 ...

Phase

Bilateral Ultrasound Guided Quadratus Lumborum Versus Lumbar Epidural Block on Postoperative Analgesia and Inflammatory Response in Abdominal Surgery

This study aims at comparing the effects of bilateral ultrasound-guided quadratus lumborum block versus lumbar epidural block on postoperative analgesia and inflammatory response following major lower abdominal cancer surgery.

Phase N/A

Comparing Local Anesthetics for Transversus Abdominis Plane (TAP) Block During Abdominally-based Free Flap for Breast Reconstruction

This study will compare the efficiency of transversus abominus plane (TAP) block using liposomal bupivacaine versus plain bupivacaine that is administered in the operating room under ultrasound guidance prior to the in patients undergoing abdominally-based free flap breast reconstruction at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Phase

Driving Pressure During General Anesthesia for Open Abdominal Surgery

The purpose of this international multicenter, patient and outcome-assessor blinded randomized controlled trial is to determine whether the application of an individualized high PEEP strategy, aiming at avoiding an increase in the driving pressure during intraoperative ventilation, protects against the development of postoperative pulmonary complications.
