Laparotomy Versus Percutaneous Puncture in Patients With Abdominal Compartment Syndrome During Acute Pancreatitis

2014-08-27 03:26:12 | BioPortfolio


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.

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.
