The current standard Swedish infection prophylaxis in colorectal surgery is intravenously administered cefuroxime and metronidazole. this combination is well studied. The disadvantages of ...
This randomized clinical trial studies how well neomycin and metronidazole hydrochloride with or without polyethylene glycol work in reducing infection in patients undergoing elective colo...
Knee prosthesis infection is a severe complication. The use of a tourniquet during surgery impairs the efficacy of the antibiotic prophylaxis. We hypothesize that the antibiotic administra...
This study wants to address the question of whether or not oral alimentation should be begun early in patients following colorectal surgery compared to the classical diet which depends on ...
Evidence on the role of intravenous iron (IVI) supplementation after colorectal cancer (CRC) surgery is rather scant. This study was aimed at assessing the benefit of postoperative IVI administration ...
Post-operative pain is a major issue following excisional haemorrhoidectomy. Although metronidazole by both oral and topical administration routes has been shown to reduce pain after haemorrhoidectomy...
Our aim was to evaluate the usefulness of serum amyloid A (SAA) measurements in comparison with C-reactive protein (CRP) in the early prediction of infectious complications among patients undergoing l...
Laparoscopy is used increasingly to treat malignant and benign colorectal surgical diseases. However, this practice is still not offered to all patients. Many barriers halt the widespread use of lapar...
Metronidazole-resistant Bacteroides fragilis (B. fragilis) have been reported worldwide. Several mechanisms contribute to B. fragilis resistance to metronidazole. In some cases, the mechanisms of metr...
A short-acting opioid anesthetic and analgesic derivative of FENTANYL. It produces an early peak analgesic effect and fast recovery of consciousness. Alfentanil is effective as an anesthetic during surgery, for supplementation of analgesia during surgical procedures, and as an analgesic for critically ill patients.

Clusters of colonic crypts that appear different from the surrounding mucosa when visualized after staining. They are of interest as putative precursors to colorectal adenomas and potential biomarkers for colorectal carcinoma.
Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.
