Pain Outcomes Following Video-Assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS) With LAP Protector

2014-08-27 03:14:34 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to see if different types of spreading (rigid or soft) of Video-assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS) for lung cancer have different effects on pain.

Description

The Lap-Protector (Hakko Co., Japan) is a device that consists of two flexible rings made of superelasticity alloys covered with polyurethane polyamide, and a thin silicone rubber membrane that is attached to the outer rim of the two rings. If the two rings are pulled apart, the device assumes a cylindrical shape. The outer diameter of each flexible ring is 12 cm, and this device can be used for minilaparotomy wounds between 5 and 9cm long.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tumors or cancer of the LUNG.

Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.

Nuclear phosphoprotein encoded by the p53 gene (GENES, P53) whose normal function is to control CELL PROLIFERATION and APOPTOSIS. A mutant or absent p53 protein has been found in LEUKEMIA; OSTEOSARCOMA; LUNG CANCER; and COLORECTAL CANCER.

A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.

A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).
