At the end of most abdominal operations, the fascial layer is closed by stitching edges of the wound together. However, because of logistic and/or technical reasons or the patient's critical condition, the surgeon is forced to leave the abdomen open. The current approach for temporary coverage of abdomen is vacuum assisted techniques (VAT). This technique requires the use of vacuum-assisted drainage to remove blood or watery fluid from a wound or operative site. Although this is the most successful and commonly used procedure, there are some limitations to this method. For example, VAT have little effect on preventing lateral movement of the wound edges. Therefore, VAT it is not the ideal procedure in aiding surgeons to closed the abdomen. The purpose of this study is to compare usual care (vacuum or non-vacuum methods for temporary coverage of the OA) versus usual care plus a novel new abdominal binder device called ABRO™ that may aid in the closure of patients who undergo open abdomen closure procedures.
The objectives of this prospective, two-arm, multicenter post-market study is to confirm safety and performance through the incidence of subjects reporting serious adverse device effects (ADEs) up to and including 30 days following use of Signia™ Stapling System with Endo GIA™ with Tri-Staple™ Technology and Tri-Staple™ 2.0 Intelligent Reloads in subjects undergoing indicated abdominal or thoracic procedures for resection, transection and creation of anastomosis per the IFU.
Children with blunt abdominal trauma often get a CT as the first line imaging to evaluate for intra-abdominal organ injury. CT scans have some downsides with regard to radiation exposure, costs, and need for transport. Contrast enhanced ultrasonography has recently shown some promise as a way to detect intra-abdominal organ injury and may be able to replace the need for conventional CT scanning, without the need for ionizing radiation and the ability to be performed at the bedside.
The battle of Mosul was characterized by the use of improvised explosive devices, human shields and suicide bombers in an urban setting. It is unclear whether this type of warfare cause more extensive abdominal injuries to civilians than combatants. All patients admitted with penetrating abdominal injury subjected to an exploratory laparotomy at Emergency Hospital, Erbil, between October 17, 2016 and July 16, 2017 will be included. Differences in demographics, injury mechanism, time since injury, clinical status on arrival, intraoperative findings, postoperative complications and outcome will be studied.
The purpose of the study is to generate pilot data describing test characteristics of contrast enhanced ultrasound in young children with concern for abdominal trauma. The primary objective in this study is to determine the sensitivity and specificity of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) compared to abdominal Computed Tomography (CT) in the detection of abdominal solid organ injury in young children < 8 years of age with concern for blunt abdominal trauma.
Fluid overload (FO), resulting from high volume fluid therapy, is frequent and contributes to excessive visceral edema, delayed fascial closure, and adverse outcomes among postinjury open abdomen (OA) patients. Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) is a promising tool in monitoring fluid status and FO. Thus, we sought to investigate the efficacy of BIA-directed resuscitation among postinjury OA patients.
This study proposes to evaluate the accuracy of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) in diagnosing abdominal solid organ injuries in pediatric patients. 146 subjects will be enrolled across approximately 8 sites in the US. All subjects will have had a Computerized Tomography (CT) scan as part of standard of care, confirming at least one solid organ abdominal injury. All subjects will have an abdominal ultrasound without contrast, followed by a contrast-enhanced ultrasound using the contrast agent Lumason. Ultrasound and contrast-enhanced ultrasound results will be compared to the CT scan results. The study procedures will take place within 48 hours of injury.
This is a single centred randomized controlled trial comparing surgeon versus anaesthetist inserted rectus sheath catheters for management of analgesia post major abdominal surgery.
The aim of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of our developed week-treatment program GAPP, on strength, balance, speed, functionality and cognition, with the main goal to achieve a better independence for activities of daily living (ADL). Each day of the week an exercise program of 45 minutes is given assigned to a specific aspect of the rehabilitation; strength, balance, speed, functional training and one day is for testing or group therapy. Participants will be followed for four weeks, with testing on day one, after two weeks and at the last day of the four-week program.
This study is being done to compare two different Temporary Abdominal Closure methods that could be used in cases like yours. The methods being compared are the Barker's vacuum packing technique (BVPT) and the Open Abdomen Negative Pressure Therapy System (ABThera).
