Clinical Outcomes After Bowel Resection in Patients Receiving Alvimopan Versus Standard of Care in the Premier Perspective Database

2014-07-23 21:08:41 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Alvimopan is the first and currently the only FDA-approved therapy for acceleration of the time to upper and lower gastrointestinal (GI) recovery following partial large or small bowel resection surgery with primary anastomosis.

The primary objective of this retrospective observational trial is to assess postoperative morbidity and mortality as reported during the index hospitalization for bowel resection and 15/30-day readmissions of alvimopan vs. non-alvimopan matched patients in the combined Premier/Care Science database(a large medical claims database).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Intestinal obstruction caused by congealed MECONIUM in the distal ILEUM and CECUM. It presents shortly after birth as a failure to pass meconium and frequently occurs in infants with CYSTIC FIBROSIS.

A type of ILEUS, a functional not mechanical obstruction of the INTESTINES. This syndrome is caused by a large number of disorders involving the smooth muscles (MUSCLE, SMOOTH) or the NERVOUS SYSTEM.

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 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.
