ANTERO-5: Gastric Motility in Postoperative Ileus

2019-09-27 06:30:45 | BioPortfolio


A monocenter, non-randomized interventional investigation in 3 panels of adult patients undergoing elective colorectal surgery who are at risk to develop postoperative ileus.

The feasibility to use the VIPUN Gastric Monitoring System prototype 0.3 will be explored in this population for the first time.

ANTERO-4: VIPUN Gastric Monitoring System in an Erythromycin Model

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...

Clinical Evaluation of the VIPUN Balloon Catheter 0.1

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...

Effect of Acupuncture on Postoperative Ileus After Gastric Surgery (EAPIG)

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...

Enteral Nutrition Infusion Rate and Gastric Function

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...

Ileus After Lumbar Spine Surgery

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...

Development of a postoperative ileus risk assessment scale: identification of intraoperative opioid exposure as a significant predictor after spinal surgery.

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...

The risk factors for postoperative ileus following posterior thoraco-lumbar spinal fusion surgery.

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...

CXCL1 is upregulated during the development of ileus resulting in decreased intestinal contractile activity.

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...

Electroacupuncture or transcutaneous electroacupuncture for postoperative ileus after abdominal surgery: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

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...

Alvimopan for the Prevention of Postoperative Ileus in Inflammatory Bowel Disease Patients.

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
