This study evaluates the enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) concept over conventional postoperative care in patients with heart valve disease undergoing cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass. Half of participants will adherence to the ERAS, while the other half will under the conventional postoperative care.
In this study, patients undergoing the bariatric surgery will be assigned to take either probiotic capsules or placebos from 1 month before surgery to 3 months after the surgery. Their anthropometric and biochemical measurements will be assessed every 3-6 months, and will be compared in two groups.
Investigating the perioperative effect of moxonidine. In a randomized double-blind fashion, patients undergoing vascular surgery will receive moxonidine 0.2 mg or placebo from the day before surgery until day 4 after surgery. Holter-EKG for 48 h, starting just before surgery. Repeated 12-lead EKG, measurements of Troponin I and BNP, clinical visitations, follow-up interviews at 6 and 12 months
EMERGENCY GENERAL SURGERY IN GERIATRIC PATIENTS: EPIDEMIOLOGY, AND EVALUATION OF FACTORS AFFECTING MORBIDITY AND MORTALITY
For some complicated hepatolithiasis, it is difficult to decide whether to perform surgery on biliary stone and portal hypertension simultaneously or separately by staged surgery.There's a high risk of intraoperative bleeding, postoperative liver failure and variceal bleeding for these patients.How to develop a optimized algorism of simultaneous and staged surgery is highly needed.
Patients who on taking clopidogrel are randomized to either continue clopidogrel into general surgery or discontinue clopidogrel 7 days before surgery. All patients resume clopidogrel after surgery. The investigators track the development of bleeding complications that may develop within 90 days of the surgery. Patients are medically cleared to be in either arm of the study by their cardiologist and surgeon. There is currently no evidence to support for or against the use c...
RATIONALE: Transoral robotic surgery may make it easier to find and remove benign or malignant tumors of the larynx and pharynx and cause less damage to normal tissue. It is not yet known whether transoral robotic surgery is more effective than standard surgery in diagnosing and treating larynx and pharynx tumors. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying how well transoral robotic surgery works compared with standard surgery in treating patients with benign or malignant tumors ...
The investigator evaluated diaphragmatic function in patients undergoing thoracic surgery. Diaphragmatic displacement was evaluated before surgery, 24 and 48 hours after surgery. Also, preoperative spirometry and postoperative spirometry were collected (48 hours after surgery).
The standard procedure for treating colonic cancer is changing from open surgery to laparoscopic surgery. Following open colonic surgery patients are fatigued and loss body mass and have a reduction in physical function, but the investigators do not know if this is also the case following laparoscopic surgery. This study examines how fatigue, quality of life, physical function, and body composition changes following laparoscopic colonic surgery. Patients are examined pr...
The purpose of this pilot study is to find out if patients are willing to self-report symptoms in the first 5 days following discharge, or when they leave the hospital after "ambulatory surgery" ("ambulatory surgery" is when the patient has surgery and then goes home within 24 hours).
RATIONALE: Surgery to remove the tumor may be an effective treatment for rectal cancer. It is not yet known whether one type of surgery is more effective than another for rectal cancer. PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of two types of surgery in treating patients who have rectal cancer.
The purpose of this study is to investigate an intervention to prevent complications after pancreas surgery. The goal is to determine if placing a stent into the pancreatic duct before surgery will decrease or prevent leaking from the pancreatic duct after surgery. Leaks are common after pancreas surgery and can result in serious problems and post-operative pain. The study will compare two groups. One group will have the stent before surgery, and the other group will have sta...
Assessment of serum level of glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) before surgery (on the day of surgery), 24 hours after surgery and on 3 or 4 postoperative day. Neuropsychological testing before surgery and on 3 or 4 day after surgery. Investigation of relationship between changes of GFAP and scores of neuropsychological tests.
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving chemotherapy after surgery may kill any tumor cells that remain after surgery. It is not yet known whether chemotherapy is more effective when given alone or together with surgery in treating patients with colorectal cancer. PURPOSE: This randomized phase II/III trial is studying how well chemotherapy works and ...
This study evaluates whether using information from a special arterial blood pressure monitor to guide how much fluid is given during surgery changes how long a patient stays in the hospital after the surgery. There is scientific evidence from using similar information from different devices that this technique might allow us to do a better job giving fluids during surgery and that this may be associated with shorter hospital stay after surgery.
Single incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) is the further development of the concept of minimally invasive surgery for colorectal cancer,which rapidly developed in the field of colorectal surgery. Through the development of single hole laparoscopic colorectal cancer radical surgery and clinical study and follow up accordingly, evaluating the feasibility, surgical effectiveness and economy help to promote the popularization and application of single hole laparoscopic techniques...
It is unknown whether it is best to do the TVT( procedure for urinary stress incontinence in women) at the time of prolapse surgery or at a later date. Women with both conditions were randomized to both procedures together or the TVT 3 months after the prolapse surgery. Any or no leakage when couching was the main end-point, evaluated 1 year after the last surgery
Most patients find that recovering from surgery is difficult particularly after abdominal surgery for cancer or other intestinal disorders. The surgical stress, healing process and concerns if further treatments are required suggest that the post-operative period may not be the best time to get people to exercise to rehabilitate lost functions. Prehabilitation is the process of enhancing functional capacity of the individual to enable him or her to withstand an incoming stres...
RATIONALE: Chemoprevention therapy is the use of certain drugs to try to prevent the development of cancer. It is not yet known whether fenretinide given before surgery is more effective in preventing ovarian cancer than surgery alone. PURPOSE: Randomized clinical trial to compare the effectiveness of fenretinide followed by surgery with that of surgery alone in preventing ovarian cancer in patients who are at increased risk.
This multicentric study aims to determine if hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) will help to prevent the development of peritoneal carcinomatosis in addition to the standard adjuvant systemic treatment after surgery.
