Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Complications that affect patients during surgery. They may or may not be associated with the disease for which the surgery is done, or within the same surgical procedure.
Reduction of blood viscosity usually by the addition of cell free solutions. Used clinically (1) in states of impaired microcirculation, (2) for replacement of intraoperative blood loss without homologous blood transfusion, and (3) in cardiopulmonary bypass and hypothermia.
Nursing care of the surgical patient before, during, and after surgery.
Interventions to provide care prior to, during, and immediately after surgery.
Patient care procedures performed during the operation that are ancillary to the actual surgery. It includes monitoring, fluid therapy, medication, transfusion, anesthesia, radiography, and laboratory tests.
Hypothermia, defined as a core body temperature less than 36°C (96.8°F), is a relatively common occurrence in the unwarmed surgical patient. A mild degree of perioperative hypothermia can be associa...
PURPOSE: We sought to examine how splenectomy as part of up-front cytoreductive surgery in ovarian cancer influences the postoperative course and affects survival. METHODS: We reviewed cases of ovaria...
BACKGROUND: Locoregional recurrence significantly impacts survival and quality of life in patients with ovarian carcinoma. We hypothesize that local administration of paclitaxel-loaded expansile nanop...
OBJECTIVE: To describe the technique and short-term post-operative outcomes associated with diaphragm full-thickness resection (FTR) and intraoperative trans-diaphragmatic decompression of the resulta...

Effects of Heat and Moisture Exchanger in Combination With Air Forced Warming Blankets or Warming Intravenous Solutions on Intraoperative Hypothermia Prevention in Obese and Non Obese Patients During Intravenous Anesthesia
The aim of the present study was to evaluate if the combination of heat and moisture exchanger with air forced warming blankets or warming intravenous fluids prevents intraoperative hypoth...
