1. Clinical impact of graft steatosis on postoperative complications after OLT. 2. Recommendations to improve outcomes after transplantation of steatotic livers and increase donor pool.
Post-surgical opioid prescribing intended for the short-term management of acute pain may lead to long-term opioid use, and its associated harms. This study was undertaken to determine the prevalence of prolonged post-surgical opioid use, and patient-related factors associated with prolonged post-surgical opioid use.
This is a prospective single- center observational study in the Leiden University Medical Center in approximately 250 children (<12 years) undergoing elective cardiac surgery, for congenital heart disease. The parents/guardians of the children will be asked to fill out a questionnaire, to asses respiratory symptoms in the last weeks, before the operation of their child. In the operating theatre, a nasopharyngeal swab will collected. Clinical data will be collected daily during paediatric intensive care admission, and date of discharge from paediatric intensive care unit and from hospital are recorded. If children are still intubated at day 4 a second nasopharyngeal swab and residual blood will be collected. The samples will be tested for rhinovirus with a polymerase chain reaction. Main study parameter is the paediatric intensive care unit length of stay in per-operative rhinovirus -positive compared to rhinovirus-negative patients.
The investigators will examine the relationship between post-operative oxygen consumption (using non-invasive measurement technology ) and complications in patients having contemporary major abdominal surgery. The investigators hypothesis is that major surgery may trigger a physiological stress response that results in an increase in post-operative metabolic demand and oxygen consumption (V̇O2) which must be met by an increased oxygen delivery (DO2). 1. To determine the feasibility of non-invasive measurement of oxygen consumption (V̇O2) using indirect calorimetry in a cohort of patients 2. To determine the feasibility of non-invasive measurement of oxygen delivery (DO2) in the same cohort using non-invasive measures of cardiac output, oxygen saturation and haemoglobin (pulse wave transit time and co-oximetry techniques)
The main purpose of this study is to examine if there are differences in postoperative inflammation following percutaneous dilatation tracheostomy versus surgical tracheostomy in intensive care unit patients.
The purpose of this study is to examine how physical activity and lifestyle factors influence postoperative recovery and postoperative complications after bariatric surgery. The hypothesis is that physically active people, with a healthy alcohol consumption and non smokers have shorter lengths of hospital stay, shorter sick-leave, fewer re-hospitalizations and fewer re-operations, fewer complications as well as a faster recovery after a surgical procedure. The investigators also hypothesize that possible risk factors for non-surgical postoperative complications e g abdominal discomfort are also life-style related factors such as smoking, high alcohol consumption, low level of physical activity, as well as other risk factors such as prior frequent abdominal pains (e g irritable bowel syndrome symptoms), high levels of anxiety and/or depression, difficulties with coping with the changed food intake regimen after obesity surgery, and generally high sensitivity for painful-sensations and nausea. First aim of this study is to investigate how life style factors prior to obesity surgery are related to hospital stay, sick-leave, immediate postoperative complication rates and the rate of resumption of QoL and normal physical function. The second aim of the study is to identify risk factors for the development of chronic abdominal discomfort and dumping symptoms after obesity surgery.
Objectives: To evaluate whether the use of single incision un-anchored small mesh implants is feasible, safe and effective for women with moderate pelvic organ prolapse. Design: Patients diagnosed with moderate pelvic organ prolapse were enrolled to undergo a single incision un-anchored mesh operation. Follow-up was 4 to 23 months. The outcome measures for this study were the operative safety and post-operative pain, adverse effects and anatomical as well as functional cure. Setting: The operations were performed under general anesthesia according with the reported surgical techniques at university and private hospitals.
Patients undergoing a brain tumour neurosurgery with craniotomy may present rare but lifethreatening post-operative complications. There are currently no strong recommendations to help the clinician in an attempt to properly hospitalise these patients after their intervention (Neuro-ICU, ICU,surgical ward). Determining risk factors of post-operative complications could optimise resources. Therefore hospitalisation in Neuro-ICU would be mandatory in only a little number of patients.
The purpose of this study is to compare the post-surgical standard-of-care dressing to the Prevena™ Incision Management System in women undergoing Cesarean section surgery.
Surgical complications may be very serious and are often under-reported. The aim of this study it to document and study all the postoperative complications at our department during one year using a novel grading system.
