Management of the open abdomen (OA) has rapidly evolved over the last several decades due to the improved understanding of the underlying pathophysiology of patients with an OA, adoption of damage control surgery, and the use of temporary abdominal closure (TAC) techniques for this patient population. The TAC utilizing negative pressure has been successful for managing patients with an OA with improved time to closure. Recent studies have started to examine the use of TAC in conjunction with negative pressure wound therapy with instillation and dwell time (NPWTi-d) for the management of the OA.

Hypochlorous acid, a type of reactive oxygen species, has been shown to play an important role in organisms. Nowadays, there are many kinds of fluorescence detecting mechanisms to detect hypochlorous ...
To estimate the change in intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) among critically ill patient who were left with open abdomen and temporary abdominal closure after laparotomy, during the first 48 h after adm...
Food additives, such as hypochlorous acid water, sodium metabisulfite, and sodium sulfite, strongly affect the chemical and biological properties of vitamin B (cyanocobalamin) in aqueous solution. Whe...
Intra-abdominal hypertension has been identified as an independent risk factor for death in critically ill patients. Known risk factors for intra-abdominal hypertension indicate that intra-abdominal p...
A high prevalence of invasive candidiasis has been reported in recent years. Patients admitted to an intensive care unit are at the highest risk for invasive candidiasis, mostly due to the severity of...
Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) in a non-antibiotic antimicrobial agent used in clinical medicine. Nevertheless, its antiplaque oral effect has not been evaluated. Chlorhexidine (CHX) is the gold...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether hypochlorous acid is an effective antiseptic agent to prevent surgical site infection.
The open abdomen can occur as a result of various diseases. After infections of the abdomen, compartment syndromes or traumata, it is essential for survival (1). This condition of the open...
The objective of this study is to determine the efficacy Avenova® (0.01% hypochlorous acid) in the treatment of viral conjunctivitis. The investigators hypothesize that patients treated w...
During laparoscopic surgery, the abdomen is inflated with carbon dioxide for abdominal imaging and increased intraabdominal pressure affects intraabdominal structures and abdominal wall.
An oxyacid of chlorine (HClO) containing monovalent chlorine that acts as an oxidizing or reducing agent.
Infection within the PERITONEAL CAVITY. A frequent cause is an ANASTOMOTIC LEAK following surgery.
Molecules or ions formed by the incomplete one-electron reduction of oxygen. These reactive oxygen intermediates include SINGLET OXYGEN; SUPEROXIDES; PEROXIDES; HYDROXYL RADICAL; and HYPOCHLOROUS ACID. They contribute to the microbicidal activity of PHAGOCYTES, regulation of signal transduction and gene expression, and the oxidative damage to NUCLEIC ACIDS; PROTEINS; and LIPIDS.
A birth defect due to malformation of the URETHRA in which the urethral opening is above its normal location. In the male, the malformed urethra generally opens on the top or the side of the PENIS, but the urethra can also be open the entire length of the penis. In the female, the malformed urethral opening is often between the CLITORIS and the labia, or in the ABDOMEN.
A clinical syndrome with acute abdominal pain that is severe, localized, and rapid onset. Acute abdomen may be caused by a variety of disorders, injuries, or diseases.
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...
