Drug pharmacokinetics of antimicrobial agents is significantly altered in the burn patients. Additionally, burn patient population exhibits a wide inter- and intrapatient variation in drug...
Early detection of intra-abdominal hypertension is essential to the prevention of abdominal compartment syndrome and requires close surveillance of intra-abdominal hypertension in patients...
The aim of the proposed study is to determine the incidence and prevalence of intra-abdominal hypertension and abdominal compartment syndrome in consecutive intensive care admissions using...
The pharmacokinetics of fluconazole are expected to be different in ICU patients compared to non-ICU patients. The investigators will determine fluconazole and free fluconazole concentrati...
The observational study is designed to determine the feasibility of performing Intra-Abdominal Pressure (IAP) via bladder pressure measurements and of tracking IAP in neonates who require ...
The decision to re-operate after abdominal surgery is still difficult, especially in the setting of intra-abdominal sepsis. Mathematical models provide a good aid to both diagnosis and decision-making...
The gold standard of quick and definitive treatment of Abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) is surgical decompression by opening the abdomen and leaving it open until intra-abdominal pressure decrease...
To determine the prevalence of intra-abdominal hypertension in mixed medical-surgical critically ill patients using modern definitions and measurement techniques. Secondarily to determine variables as...
We report the case of a 70-year-old man who presented with hematochezia, anaemia, and severe abdominal pain 6 days after polypectomy. Contrast-enhanced ultrasound and computed tomography revealed no s...
Perforation of the abdominal esophagus caused by nasogastric tube (NGT) intubation has been rarely reported in adults.
Pathological elevation of intra-abdominal pressure (>12 mm Hg). It may develop as a result of SEPSIS; PANCREATITIS; capillary leaks, burns, or surgery. When the pressure is higher than 20 mm Hg, often with end-organ dysfunction, it is referred to as abdominal compartment syndrome.
INFLAMMATION of the PERITONEUM lining the ABDOMINAL CAVITY as the result of infectious, autoimmune, or chemical processes. Primary peritonitis is due to infection of the PERITONEAL CAVITY via hematogenous or lymphatic spread and without intra-abdominal source. Secondary peritonitis arises from the ABDOMINAL CAVITY itself through RUPTURE or ABSCESS of intra-abdominal organs.
Fatty tissue in the region of the ABDOMEN. It includes the ABDOMINAL SUBCUTANEOUS FAT and the INTRA-ABDOMINAL FAT.
Surgical removal of excess abdominal skin and fat and tightening of the ABDOMINAL WALL. Abdominoplasty may include LIPECTOMY of INTRA-ABDOMINAL FAT, tightening of the ABDOMINAL MUSCLES, and re-creation of the UMBILICUS.
Fatty tissue inside the ABDOMINAL CAVITY, including visceral fat and retroperitoneal fat. It is the most metabolically active fat in the body and easily accessible for LIPOLYSIS. Increased visceral fat is associated with metabolic complications of OBESITY.
