Early Debridement Within 24 Hours After Surgery for Wound Healing of Abdominal Incision

Wound healing after surgery is a complex procedure. Liquefaction of the fat and necrosis of inactivated tissue, as well as blood clots are always accumulated mostly within 24 hours after surgery. As such, early debridement within 24 hours after surgery might improve the healing of the wounds. This study is ...

Adults 18 to 80 years old having elective inpatient open or laparoscopic abdominal surgery with general anesthesia lasting 2 hours or longer will be included in this study.


Remote Ischemic Preconditioning in Patients Undergoing Acute Minor Abdominal Surgery

Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) consists of cycles of forearm or leg ischemia and reperfusion by the inflation of a blood-pressure cuff over the systemic blood pressure for brief periods. The procedure is simple, safe and with no clear side effects. In clinical studies covering acute cardiology RIPC has effectively reduced ...
