Socioeconomic factors may influence the outcome of certain surgical procedures, but it is not known whether such factors influence the risk for postoperative complication after bariatric surgery.
The most common complication after thyroid surgery is hypocalcaemia and it sometimes leads to problems that are difficult to correct in patients. The present study was aimed to determine the risk fact...
Hyperchloremia is frequent in adult surgical patients and is associated with renal dysfunction. Studies in surgical pediatric patients are lacking.
Bariatric surgery is an effective and durable treatment for obesity. However, the number of patients that progress to bariatric surgery after initial evaluation remains low.
Acquired inhibition of coagulation factors is a rare disease, and the diagnosis is often difficult and delayed. We experienced a deficiency in all coagulation factors after hepatobiliary surgery.
This is a research study about monitoring diuresis in acute respiratory failure. Often, patients with respiratory failure have fluid building up in the lungs, which means less oxygen can r...
Evaluating whether forced diuresis with matched hydration will reduce the risk of contrast induced nephropathy in patients undergoing Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI).
This study will assess if administration of a loop diuretic, specifically furosemide, to achieve euvolemia can safely reduce length of stay following colorectal surgery.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether fenoldopam infusion during cardiopulmonary bypass in young children with congenital heart disease is able to reduce indicators of acute ki...
This study is being proposed with the objective to assess the potential benefits of induced diuresis by furosemide with matched hydration therapy compared to standard hydration in the prev...
The relating of causes to the effects they produce. Causes are termed necessary when they must always precede an effect and sufficient when they initiate or produce an effect. Any of several factors may be associated with the potential disease causation or outcome, including predisposing factors, enabling factors, precipitating factors, reinforcing factors, and risk factors.
An increase in the excretion of URINE. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 6th ed)
Infections of non-skeletal tissue, i.e., exclusive of bone, ligaments, cartilage, and fibrous tissue. The concept is usually referred to as skin and soft tissue infections and usually subcutaneous and muscle tissue are involved. The predisposing factors in anaerobic infections are trauma, ischemia, and surgery. The organisms often derive from the fecal or oral flora, particularly in wounds associated with intestinal surgery, decubitus ulcer, and human bites. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1688)
Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.
Surgery which could be postponed or not done at all without danger to the patient. Elective surgery includes procedures to correct non-life-threatening medical problems as well as to alleviate conditions causing psychological stress or other potential risk to patients, e.g., cosmetic or contraceptive surgery.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
