Use of antibiotics before, during, or after a diagnostic, therapeutic, or surgical procedure to prevent infectious complications.
A broad-spectrum antibiotic that is being used as prophylaxis against disseminated Mycobacterium avium complex infection in HIV-positive patients.
Endoscopic surgical procedures performed with visualization via video transmission. When real-time video is combined interactively with prior CT scans or MRI images, this is called image-guided surgery (see SURGERY, COMPUTER-ASSISTED).
Cholangiopancreatography, Endoscopic Retrograde
Fiberoptic endoscopy designed for duodenal observation and cannulation of VATER'S AMPULLA, in order to visualize the pancreatic and biliary duct system by retrograde injection of contrast media. Endoscopic (Vater) papillotomy (SPHINCTEROTOMY, ENDOSCOPIC) may be performed during this procedure.
The therapeutic ability of endoscopic ultrasound has expanded, especially in assisting with radiation planning for image guided radiation techniques such as stereotactic body radiation therapy. Endosc...
Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided fine needle aspiration (FNA) has been widely used for the diagnosis of primary and metastatic gastrointestinal (GI) and non-GI malignancies. Few studies have been pu...
Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided injection therapy is the new frontier in the management of patients with hepatobiliary disease. Celiac plexus block/neurolysis was the first form of injection therap...
The aim of perioperative antibiotic prophylaxis is the prevention of surgical site infections and urinary tract infections during urological procedures. The indication for antibiotic prophylaxis compr...
In the UK, staging of lung cancer is time consuming (taking on average more than 3 weeks), costly and inaccurate in up to 20% of cases. The investigators wish to determine whether using th...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the yield of endoscopic guided fine needle aspirations (by means of transoesophageal endoscopic ultrasound : EUS-FNA or transbronchial endoscopic u...
Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is commonly used for long term enteral feeding of patients with severe dysphagia. The most common complication is peristomal wound infection. The...
The investigators would like to conduct a prospective, randomized non-inferiority study to compare clinical outcome between endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) guided gallbladder drainage and perc...
In this study the investigators aim to test if C-reactive protein (CRP)or procalcitonin(PCT) - guided strategy allows to reduce the antibiotic use in patients wiht severe sepsis and septic...
