Optimizing the Previs Device for Prediction of Postoperative Ileus

Following major abdominal surgery, up to 30% of patients develop a poorly understood condition known as ileus. When ileus occurs, the bowels shut down and patients often develop abdominal dissension, nausea, vomiting, and even more serious complications. Because this condition does not develop until many days after surgery has been ...

Intravenous Nutrition in Hospitalized Patients: Comparison of Two Oils

Until recently, Intralipid, a soybean oil-based lipid emulsion, has been the only available lipid for intravenous use in Canada. In 2010, ClinOleic, a new, predominantly olive oil based emulsion, has been approved by Health Canada as an alternative lipid. There is an increasing need for hospitals to do quality-assurance studies ...

Phase

Stimulation of the Efferent Loop Before Loop Ileostomy Closure

Stimulation was performed 3 weeks prior to the ileostomy closure using 500 cc of a thickening substance (saline and nutritional thickener) through the efferent limb.

Phase

Anti-inflammatory Effect of Peroperative Stimulation of the Vagus Nerve

Hypothesis Electrical stimulation of the abdominal vagus nerve has anti-inflammatory effects which lead to a faster postoperative recovery after abdominal surgery. Aims In the present study, the investigators want evaluate the anti-inflammatory effect of peroperative electrical stimulation of the vagus nerve. In addition, the investigators want to determine whether vagus ...

Phase

Prucalopride in Postoperative Ileus

Postoperative ileus (POI) refers to the period of gut dysmotility that occurs after abdominal surgery. Patients with POI are unable to eat, suffer ongoing nausea and vomiting, are unable to open their bowels and have a prolonged hospital stay. Research at ADHB shows that 25% of patients will have a ...

Multimodal Narcotic Limited Perioperative Pain Control With Colorectal Surgery

Postoperative ileus is a well-known problem for patients who have undergone a colorectal procedure. It is manifested as abdominal distension, accumulation of gas and fluid within the bowels and delayed bowel function (flatus or defecation). It is estimated that with traditional perioperative care for open colon resection postoperative ileus can ...

Phase

Anti-inflammatory Effect of Pre-operative Stimulation of the Cholinergic Anti-Inflammatory Pathway

Hypothesis Prucalopride can mimic electrical stimulation of the abdominal vagus nerve and has an anti-inflammatory effect. Aims In the present pilot study, the investigators want to evaluate the anti-inflammatory effect of prucalopride. The following aims are formulated: to show that prucalopride has a similar inflammatory effect as abdominal vagus nerve ...

Phase

Comparison of Extraperitoneal and Intraperitoneal Cesarean Technique

Investigators will compared results intra and extraperitoneal cesarean section. Two groups will determine according to random numbers table. After operations, blood count, C reactive proteins, postoperative temperature, need for analgesia, ileus, bowel movement, mobilization time will compare by blind physician. Abdominal, shoulder and incisional pain at postoperative 0, 6, 12, ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Chewing Gum on Post-operative Ileus (GUMPI)

The patients undergoing spine surgery are at risk of developing post-operative ileus, which will lengthen the hospital stay and cause gastrointestinal distress in patients. Post-operative sham feeding in form of chewing a gum seems to increase the functionality of gastro-intestinal tract earlier in patients who have undergone gastro-intestinal and gynecological ...

Phase N/A

Electroacupuncture for Postoperative Ileus After Laparoscopic Surgery for Mid and Low Rectal Cancer

Background: Postoperative ileus (POI) remains a significant problem after colorectal surgery that adversely influences patients' recovery and prolongs hospital stay. The investigators' previous study demonstrated that electroacupuncture (EA) at Zusanli, Sanyinjiao, Hegu, and Zhigou reduces the duration of POI and hospital stay after laparoscopic resection of colonic and upper rectal ...
