Evaluation of the Contribution of Low-pressure Intra-abdominal Insufflation for Laparoscopic Colic Resection

2019-10-08 08:47:35 | BioPortfolio


The laparoscopic surgery requires gas insufflation in the peritoneal cavity and the operator chooses the intraabdominal insufflation pressure. In general, during a conventional laparoscopy, this pressure is 12 to 15 mmHg. The reduction of the intra-abdominal pressure minimizes the parietal trauma due to the insufflation and could lead to a reduction of the postoperative pains and could allow an earlier recovery. In this study, the investigator propose to evaluate the benefits of a low pressure insufflation (6-8 mmHg) with pressure-controlled insufflator in patients with a mild or malignant colon pathology requiring surgical colic resection. The main objective of the study is to demonstrate that the laparoscopic colic resection at low pressure reduces the theoretical hospital stay of one day compared to the conventional laparoscopy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A procedure in which a laparoscope (LAPAROSCOPES) is inserted through a small incision near the navel to examine the abdominal and pelvic organs in the PERITONEAL CAVITY. If appropriate, biopsy or surgery can be performed during laparoscopy.

The pressure within the CARDIAC ATRIUM. It can be measured directly by using a pressure catheter (see HEART CATHETERIZATION). It can be also estimated using various imaging techniques or other pressure readings such as PULMONARY CAPILLARY WEDGE PRESSURE (an estimate of left atrial pressure) and CENTRAL VENOUS PRESSURE (an estimate of right atrial pressure).

A pathological condition characterized by the presence of a number of COLONIC DIVERTICULA in the COLON. Its pathogenesis is multifactorial, including colon aging, motor dysfunction, increases in intraluminal pressure, and lack of dietary fibers.

The blood pressure in the VEINS. It is usually measured to assess the filling PRESSURE to the HEART VENTRICLE.

Placement of one of the surgeon's gloved hands into the ABDOMINAL CAVITY to perform manual manipulations that facilitate the laparoscopic procedures.
