Effective postoperative pain control results in decreased cardiac and pulmonary complications, patient satisfaction and early mobilization. A prospective, randomized comparative study was done of analgesic efficacy, opioid requirement and side effects in patients undergoing lower abdominal cancer surgeries. In Study Group Ultrasound guided Transversus Abdominis Plane (TAP) block was given and control Group no TAP block was given. Patient controlled analgesia (PCA) with intravenous morphine was given to both group patients, and total good PCA demands in both the groups was studied.
This study aims to compare the diagnostic performance of 18F-FDG and 18F-FSPG PET/CT in lung, breast, and abdominal cancers before undergoing therapy. In addition, the role of 18F-FSPG PET/CT in evaluating therapy response and prognosis will also be evaluated.
Postoperative pain in pediatrics can usually be well controlled with a combination of analgesics including acetaminophen ( paracetamol) ,NSIADS, opioids , and local/regional anesthesia.The use of epidural and subarachnoid morphine for analgesia in adults has grown almost as quickly as Morton`s discovery of anesthesia in 1846. The application of these techniques to the pediatric patients has evolved much more slowly,although significant progress is being made by many investigators.
Postoperative observation of patients is based on the Early Warning Score (EWS). By using continuous wireless monitoring of vital parameters it may be possible to predict the risk of complications after abdominal cancer surgery. The object of this pilot study is to test the equipment and methods for the next phases. Patients will be monitored for 4 days postoperatively and data is analyzed retrospectively. Vital parameters are monitored with ECG, blood pressure monitor and pulseoximetry. In the analysis the investigators will compare the results from the continuous monitoring to the measurements made by the nurses and registered in the EWS. The primary outcomes for the pilot study are the frequency of measurements resulting in a single parameter score of 3 according to the EWS algorithm.
The study compares between the efficacy, safety and impact on the quality of life of radiofrequency thermocoagulation and chemical neurolysis of bilateral thoracic splanchnic nerves in the management of refractory pain which developed in patients suffering from upper abdominal cancer.
The purpose of this study is to determine if giving Cialis for 5 days prior to surgery, on the day of surgery along with the influenza vaccine and Cialis 10 days after surgery will have an affect at the cell level for decreasing the chances of the spread of disease post surgery.
This study aims to compare the effects of local wound infiltration with ketamine versus dexmedetomidine when added to bupivacaine on stress response and postoperative pain in lower abdominal cancer surgery.
General anesthesia and mechanical ventilation promotes atelectasis and airway closure. The open-lung approach (OLA) strategy restores the functional residual capacity. Pulse oximetry hemoglobin saturation (SpO2) using room air can diagnose shunt induced by lung collapse during general anesthesia and the SpO2 breathing air was useful to detect the lung´s opening and closing pressure during a recruitment maneuver (RM) in morbidly obese anesthetized patients. Investigators hypothesized that the SpO2 breathing air can personalize the open-lung approach.
This study aims to compare the analgesic efficacy of transversus abdominis-plane block with bupivicaine versus bupivacaine with morphine in patients undergoing major abdominal cancer surgery.
This study will look at how tumors in the chest and abdomen move when you breathe. Your doctors are studying if extra 4D CT scans and instructions on how to breathe can help predict this type of movement and improve the accuracy of radiation treatment. 4D CT scans are approved by the FDA. A 4D CT scan is different from a regular CT because it moves slower and takes more pictures. It takes pictures of the way your body moves when you breathe. This gives doctors more pictures of your body so that they can match your pictures to the way you breathe. In this study, instructions on how to breathe will be visual and audio. Visual instructions will be given to you on a computer screen. You will hear audio instructions through a speaker.
