The purpose of the protocol is to assess how incentive spirometer data gathered via a smartphone platform can be utilized to improve participant adherence to prescribed incentive spirometer exercises in the post-operative period. Half of the participants will receive a standard of care incentive spirometer with a passive tracking device while the other half of the participants will receive a smartphone connected device and smartphone with an application that will encourage their use.
Subjects who are planned to undergo an abdominal (colon) surgery and who will meet the study entry criteria will be randomly divided into 2 groups: for half D-PLEX will be administered concomitantly with the standard of care (SOC). The other half will receive the Standard of Care treatment.

The aim of the present prospective study was, first, to verify the correlation between biliary colonization and postoperative infectious complications, and secondarily to asses morbidity and mortality for patients who underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy. The hypothesis is that a proportion of post-operative infections after pancreaticoduodenectomy is due to bacteria that colonize the bile ducts during the preoperative period.
Decompressive craniectomy is frequently used to treat increased intracranial pressure or an intracranial mass effect. Trephined Syndrome describes a neurological deterioration, which is attributed to a large craniectomy. The symptomatology is varied but includes headache, aggravation of a hemisyndrome or cognitive disorders, often has an orthostatic component and improves or disappears with cranioplasty. The incidence of Trephined Syndrome has been reported between 7% and 26%. However, it might be underestimated if the course of cognitive functions before and after cranioplasty were insufficiently documented.
