Study Comparing Caspofungin to Placebo for the Treatment of ICU Intra-abdominal Candidiasis

The incidence of intra-abdominal candidiasis is increasing, and it is now the leading indication for antifungal therapy, ahead of candidemia. Prospective randomized trials of antifungal th...

Pharmacokinetics of Caspofungin in Burn Patients

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...

an Educational Program About Abdominal Compartment Syndrome

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...

Intra-abdominal Hypertension in Critically Ill 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...

Pharmacokinetics of Fluconazole IV as Prophylaxis or Therapy to ICU Patients

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...

Mesenteric bones: Intra-abdominal heterotopic ossification.

Intra-abdominal heterotopic ossification usually develops after abdominal surgery and can cause complications such as bowel obstruction and even intestinal perforation. Bisphosphonates, NSAIDs and eve...

Intra-abdominal abscess due to fish bone perforation of small bowel.

Liver Abscess Secondary to Perforation after Duodenal Endoscopic Resection.

Duodenal perforation is a complication of endoscopic mucosal resection. Liver abscess secondary to iatrogenic perforation is extremely rare. A 43-year-old female visited the hospital to remove a sub-e...

Intra-Abdominal Hypertension Is More Common Than Previously Thought: A Prospective Study in a Mixed Medical-Surgical ICU.

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...

A novel balloon technique to induce intra-abdominal hypertension and its effects on cardiovascular parameters in a conscious dog model.

To evaluate a new balloon technique to induce intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) and abdominal compartment syndrome in a conscious dog model, and to evaluate the effect of intra-abdominal pressure (IA...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
