Laparotomy Versus Percutaneous Puncture in Patients With Abdominal Compartment Syndrome During Acute Pancreatitis
Decompressive laparotomy with temporary abdominal closure, will decrease of overall mortality and major morbidity in patients with abdominal compartment syndrome during acute pancreatitis in comparison with percutaneous puncture with placement of abdominal catheter.
We anticipated that decompressive laparotomy with temporary abdominal closure, beside all potentially negative side effects that early open surgery carries in patients with acute pancreatitis, results in decrease of overall mortality and major morbidity. The DECOMPRESS study is designed to compare effects of decompressive laparotomy with temporary abdominal closure and percutaneous puncture with placement of abdominal catheter in patients with abdominal compartment syndrome during acute pancreatitis.

The research hypothesis for this study is to possibly reduce the incidence of incisional hernia 2 years postoperatively after midline laparotomy for treatment of aortic aneurysm from 25% t...
The primary purpose of the study is to determine whether two vacuum-wound-dressing techniques (the so called "abdominal dressing" versus "vacuum-pack-technique") are equally effective in t...
Within the last decade the customary trend of using non absorbable sutures has changed, with numerous studies and meta-analyses advocating the use of slowly absorbable sutures, claiming co...
Hemostasis at the arterial puncture site after percutaneous coronary interventions is achieved by either placement of a puncture closure device or by delaying sheath removal for hours to a...
We conducted a prospective randomized study to evaluate the results of early closure of temporary loop ileostomy at eight days in comparison with late closure at two months, after elective...
Negative pressure therapy (NPT) is a widely recognised procedure for the temporary closure of open abdominal wounds. In this study, we compare two NPT products, the V.A.C.® abdominal dressing (AD) sy...
Component separation is established for complex hernia repairs. This case presents early component separation and release of the anterior and posterior sheath to facilitate closure of the abdominal wa...
The emergent abdominal surgeries from either of traumatic or non traumatic causes can result in situations in which the abdominal wall cannot initially be closed. Many techniques have been reported fo...
Voice rehabilitation in laryngectomized patients by tracheoesophageal puncture is a time tested technique. In some patients the tracheoesophageal puncture gets inordinately dilated leading to leakage...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Methods to repair breaks in abdominal tissues caused by trauma or to close surgical incisions during abdominal surgery.
Radiographic visualization of the aorta and its branches by injection of contrast media, using percutaneous puncture or catheterization procedures.
Percutaneous excision of a herniated or displaced intervertebral disk by posterolateral approach, always remaining outside the spinal canal. Percutaneous nucleotomy was first described by Hijikata in Japan in 1975. In 1985 Onik introduced automated percutaneous nucleotomy which consists in percutaneous aspiration of the nucleus pulposus. It is carried out under local anesthesia, thus reducing the surgical insult and requiring brief hospitalization, often performed on an outpatient basis. It appears to be a well-tolerated alternative to surgical diskectomy and chymopapain nucleolysis.
Percutaneous transabdominal puncture of the uterus during pregnancy to obtain amniotic fluid. It is commonly used for fetal karyotype determination in order to diagnose abnormal fetal conditions.
A secondary headache disorder attributed to low CEREBROSPINAL FLUID pressure caused by SPINAL PUNCTURE, usually after dural or lumbar puncture.
