Fractures of the second cervical vertebra (C2) are the most common spinal fracture among the elderly. Non-surgical treatment comprises of cervical collar treatment for 12 weeks, while surgical treatment for elderly could mean posterior fixation C1-C2 without collar treatment or anterior screw osteosynthesis C2 with 6 weeks of collar treatment. A meta-analysis of retrospective studies has recently found an improved survival with surgical treatment (Robinson Y et al. 2014). This ...
Incision size in cataract surgery is related to induced surgical astigmatism, chamber stability, and surgical efficiency. Sleeves of different diameters change the size of the surgical incision and amount of fluid allowed into the eye during the surgical procedure for a given set of surgical parameters. Optimization of surgical parameters requires review of surgical efficiency including: fluid usage, energy usage, and total surgical time. With optimized surgical parameters r...
There is a need for the development and validation of new teaching strategies and resources for surgical training that can occur outside of the operating room. The use of surgical videos is not novel however it has not been validated as an effective approach for gynecologic surgical training. The goals of our study are to (1) develop an educational surgical video for laparoscopic salpingo-oophrectomy (LSO) and (2) to evaluate and test the effectiveness of this tool in preparing...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect surgical lights, surgical smoke, and surgical sounds have on patient satisfaction with their outpatient Mohs surgical procedure.
Limited information is available about surgical checklist effectiveness in Latin America. We plan to compare the pre and post surgical checklist implementation in a tertiary healthcare center in terms of morbidity (length of stay and surgical site infection rate) and in-hospital mortality rate.
To compare the performance of surgical suturing using Da Vinci Robotic Surgical System and conventional Laparoscopic surgical suturing among novice
The present randomized controlled trial evaluates the efficacy and safety of BioFoam® Surgical Matrix in patients undergoing elective liver resection. In contrast to other topical agents, the surgical adhesive BioFoam® Surgical Matrix may not only accelerate hemostasis but also facilitate sealing of bile ducts and thus has the potential to reduce the incidence of postoperative complications. The primary objective of this trial is to show that time-to-complete hemostasis can ...
This prospective observational study examines the associations of presence, duration, type, number and location of surgical drains with the risk of surgical site infections in a contemporary and multicentric cohort of general, orthopedic trauma and vascular surgery procedures.
The study evaluates the effectiveness of surgical or non-surgical treatment for children type 1 humeral condyle fracture.Half of the participants receive surgical treatment and the other half receive non-surgical treatment
Patients presenting in the Emergency Department or admitted to the hospital with displaced hip fractures who require hemiarthroplasty or open reduction internal fixation or with spinal instability/fractures in need of urgent surgical intervention will receive treatment to reduce the number of microorganisms in their nose prior to surgery. After surgery, the subjects will be observed for any surgical site infections.
To assess the use of the da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System (Intuitive Surgical, Inc., Sunnyvale, CA) in transoral surgeries in patients with benign and malignant lesions of the oral cavity and laryngopharynx.
The main objective of this study is to investigate whether the non-surgical periodontal treatment of patients with periodontitis and obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) affects the prognosis of OSAS positively with polysomnographic, serum and saliva parameters.
To find out the effectiveness of physical therapy associated with the surgical treatment over the simptoms and quality of life in III and IV grades of pelvic organ prolapse, patients will be randomly assigned to one of these groups: experimental group: pre-surgical and post-surgical physical therapy + behavioral education + surgical therapy. Control group: surgical treatment + behavioral education. In both groups several physical therapy assessments will be undertaken: 1st bef...
.A surgical intervention involves the participant and his / her family in a very stressful situation with a biopsychosocial alteration of the participant, often presenting a lack of knowledge of the surgical process from admission to hospital discharge. Researchers (nursing) began to make prior visits to the surgical procedure to reduce anxiety and provide information about the surgical process. The importance of the presurgical nursing visit (PNV) is sought, how to achieve a b...
AdAM is a prospective, randomized, controlled, double-blinded, monocentric trial in patients receiving surgical therapy due to anal HPV infection. Aim of the study is to evaluate efficacy of combination therapy (surgical therapy + topical Imiquimod-therapy). It is planned to include 200 patients. 100 patients receive surgical therapy+ topical Imiquimod therapy, 100 patients receive surgical therapy + topical Placebo therapy
The purpose of this study is to determine if local warming of surgical wounds improves healing and helps prevent infection. The investigators want to see if warming surgical incisions improves oxygen levels and healing in skin close to the incision.
Two groups of patients (73 patients each) undergoing routine caesarean section has recurrent keloid at site of surgical scar. One group will undergo surgical excision of keloid. The other group will have combined surgical excision of keloid and single intralesional dexamethazone injection at edges of wound.All patients were reviewed once per month for 6 months for evidence of recurrence
Laparoscopic distal gastrectomy (LDG) is a common surgery in the surgical trainees. However, there is no assessment system to measuring the surgical skill of surgical trainees. The novel surgical assessment system, which called Global Operative Assessment of Laparoscopic Skills-Distal Gastrectomy (GOALS-DG) by the task analysis and the Delphi method have been developed. This study describes assessing the development of surgical skill by GOALS-DG in the initial experience of LDG...
The purpose of this study is to determine if the infiltration of 0.5% Bupivacaine in the surgical wound is effective to diminish the pain and the risk of surgical site infections in patients who go to a open gastrointestinal procedure.
Chronic obstinate constipation is hard to deal with in clinic. Especially for obstructed defecation syndrome(ODS). Rectal prolapse is the most common type of ODS. Lots of surgical procedures have been suggested for it but with unsatisfactory results.To develop new surgical treatment and to provide higher quality proof for this intractable condition is of significance.
This two arms parallel cluster-randomized trial will evaluate the impact of monitoring surgical outcomes using Shewhart control chart (intervention) on the occurence of major adverse events, among a large sample of French surgical departments. Trends in surgical outcomes before and after the intervention will be compared between arms.
The overall objective is to compare efficacy and safety of TachoComb S and standard surgical treatment for the control of local bleeding in patients undergoing surgical resection of renal tumours. Specific objectives include the comparison between test treatments of intra-operative haemostatic efficacy as well as post-operative blood loss, haematoma formation, and surgeon's rating of usefulness of test treatment.
This intervention study is designed to evaluate the effects of non-surgical procedure in addition to surgical procedure on systemic inflammation and glycemic control in with type 2 diabetes mellitus patients with periodontitis in comparison with non-diabetic periodontic patients.
It is assumed that the reduction of the flap dimension could provide a reduction of surgical time, post surgical complications and patient's discomfort when compared with the traditional surgical approach.
The incidence of conditions requiring surgical intervention increases with age, however there is a reported decline in the rates of elective surgical procedures in those over 65. This is associated with older patients being described as "less fit" and more at risk of postoperative complications, leading to decreased provision of surgical care to those at need. Exercise interventions have the potential to reverse some of the decline in cardiovascular fitness associated with agin...
