It has been demonstrated that the VIPUN Gastric Monitoring System (GMS) can discriminate healthy physiological and pharmacologically-inhibited gastric motility, using a codeine-model in he...
The primary aim of this investigation is to assess the safety, feasibility and performance of the VIPUN Balloon Catheter 0.1 in the assessment of gastric motility. The investigation will a...
Postoperative ileus (POI) is a common problem after major abdominal surgery. Acupuncture is being accepted in the West as a treatment option for managing POI and various functional gastroi...
A complex neurohumoral feedback mechanism regulates gastric emptying of enteral nutrition through changes in gastric motility. In this investigation, we aim to investigate the impact of di...
Postoperative ileus (POI) after lumbar spine surgery is not uncommon. However, the incidence, severity and risk factors of ileus after spine surgery remain uncertain because there is not y...
Postoperative ileus (POI) is associated with abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and delayed mobilization that in turn lead to diminished patient satisfaction, increased hospital length of stay (LOS), a...
Postoperative ileus (PI) is a common complication following posterior thoraco-lumbar spinal fusion surgery. It usually slows patient's recovery and increases postoperative morbidity. However, the risk...
Although the development of ileus is widespread and negatively impacts patient outcomes, the mechanism by which ileus develops remains unclear. The purpose of our study was to examine the contribution...
At present, there is no ideal treatment for postoperative ileus (POI) after abdominal surgery. This meta-analysis aims to evaluate the efficacy of electroacupunture (EA) and transcutenous electroacupu...
Postoperative ileus (POI) is a temporary delay of coordinated intestinal peristalsis. Alvimopan, an oral peripherally acting mu-opioid receptor antagonist approved for accelerating gastrointestinal re...
Abnormal distention of the STOMACH due to accumulation of gastric contents that may reach 10 to 15 liters. Gastric dilatation may be the result of GASTRIC OUTLET OBSTRUCTION; ILEUS; GASTROPARESIS; or denervation.
A condition caused by the lack of intestinal PERISTALSIS or INTESTINAL MOTILITY without any mechanical obstruction. This interference of the flow of INTESTINAL CONTENTS often leads to INTESTINAL OBSTRUCTION. Ileus may be classified into postoperative, inflammatory, metabolic, neurogenic, and drug-induced.
Critical care treatment using intensive monitoring and aggressive management of perioperative hemodynamics in high risk patients,
Reduction of high-risk choices and adoption of low-risk quantity and frequency alternatives.
A specific decapeptide obtained from the skin of Hila caerulea, an Australian amphibian. Caerulein is similar in action and composition to CHOLECYSTOKININ. It stimulates gastric, biliary, and pancreatic secretion; and certain smooth muscle. It is used in paralytic ileus and as diagnostic aid in pancreatic malfunction.
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...
