Patients undergoing surgery on their Aorta can get ischemia, a lack of blood flow, to their intestines and colon. This is very serious, as 2 out of 3 patients who have this problem die before leaving the hospital. A device developed by Spectros, called T-Stat, is approved by the US FDA to detect ischemia, and has been reported to detect ischemia in AAA aneurysm surgery and stenting, allowing the surgeon or interventional radiologist to take action quickly, while the colon ischemia is still treatable.
This purpose of this study is to establish how T-Stat can best be used to prevent deaths.

To the best of our knowledge, only two studies analyzed the relationship between HRV and carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) in colon cancer patients. The aim of this study was to analyze changes in the au...
Developments in the quality of care of patients with colon cancer have improved surgical outcome and thus the need for adjuvant chemotherapy.
Life expectancy plays a key role in the selection of patients with stage III colon cancer for adjuvant chemotherapy, but little is known about causes of mortality in older patients with colon cancer. ...
