The primary aim of this study is to establish if it is possible for patients who have undergone major body surgery to complete a home based exercise training program and complete the assessments required to measure physical and cognitive function. If the investigators can establish that it is feasible to complete the training and test's then further research can follow using these methods to determine whether it is possible to improve the physical function of older patients undergoing major abdominal surgery in the period following surgery by using a simple exercise regimen that can be carried out at home. By targeting physical function in this way the investigators hope to determine if it is a method for improving frailty and well being. In turn it may also have a positive impact on health service provision.
Combination of volatile and opioid agents are used to achieve unconsciousness, haemodynamic stability and analgesia for surgical prosedures. This prospective, randomized, double-blind, controlled study evaluates the effects of two different doses of morphine sulphate (0.1 mg/kg and 0.2 mg/kg), on desflurane consumption, recovery characteristics, postoperative analgesic requirements and side effects during total abdominal hysterectomy.
The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of Transversus Abdominis Plane Block on hemodynamic variables, anaesthetic and analgesic requirement, and quality of recovery in patients undergoing total abdominal hysterectomy
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a tubectomy during hysterectomy for benign gynaecological conditions does not result into a premature menopause.
TAP block performed under ultrasound guidance is used as part of multimodal analgesia to relieve pain after abdominal surgery in our hospital. Choices of local anaesthetic used include bupivacaine and ropivacaine. Local anaesthetic works by inhibiting nerve transmission of pain from the site of tissue injury. An important component of the pain experienced by patients after abdominal surgery derives from the abdominal wall incision. The abdominal wall sensory afferents course through the transversus abdominis (neurofascial) plane superficial to the transversus abdominis muscle. Single shot TAP block has been shown to provide pain relief of up to 24h in surgeries involving pfannenstiel incisions, hence a study period of 24h is chosen in patients undergoing hysterectomy. This study was designed to test the hypothesis that the TAP block, as part of a multimodal analgesic regimen, even at a lower concentration, would provide effective analgesia in the first 24 h after hysterectomy, in comparison to a higher concentration of 0.4% ropivacaine.
The purpose of this study was to find out subjective and objective outcomes of patients undergoing subtotal or total abdominal hysterectomy during a follow up of a mean 33 years after the operation. The hypothesis is that there are similar outcomes after both types of operations.
The investigators hypothesized that 1 mg of acetaminophen 4 times per day for 3 days prevent chronic pain in hysterectomy patients.
The study is prospective and double blind. In the clinic, patients undergoing hysterectomy that meet the criteria for inclusion into the study and agreed to participate in the study will be randomized into two groups.
