To evaluate the efficacy and safety of Alvimopan(12 mg) in recovery of bowel function in an emergency trauma setting without the pre-operative dosage in patients that will receive abdominal surgery.
A feasibility study for assessing and recording myoelectric activity in patients for early detection of a post-operative ileus (POI) in patients who undergo gastrointestinal surgery and differentiating the myoelectric signals from those who have normal post-operative return of GI function.
This study will measure the accuracy of a disposable, non-invasive device for the continuous monitoring of abdominal sounds, called the AGIS sensor (Acoustic Gastro-Intestinal Surveillance) in predicting patients' intolerance to feeding (defined as severe nausea, vomiting, or need to place a nasogastric tube within 4 hours of initiating a standard feeding protocol) following abdominal surgery. This will be a pragmatic, observational study.
Aim was to investigate efficacy of current treatments - water, chewing gum, and olive oil, in resolving postoperative ileus.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether the use of nicotine gum in the postoperative period influences surgical outcome in patients undergoing colorectal surgery.
Post- operative ileus refers to the time after surgery before coordinated electromotor bowel function resumes. It's treatment and prevention may signify an elevated hospitalization cost and the exposure to the patient to adverse effects of drugs. The current clinical trial has as primary objective to prove the efficacy of chewing gum as a preventive measure of post-operative ileus in pediatric patients after gastrointestinal surgery through the determination of the time the patient takes to tolerate oral intake, pass flatus, present bowel movements and the time of hospital stay. Patients will be assigned either to the case group (chewing gum + standard treatment) or to the control group (standard treatment), in both of them time from the end of surgery to the moment the patient presents first bowel movement, passes flatus, tolerates oral intake (any type of food) and is discharged from hospital; will be measured in hours and then analyzed to determine the validity of these data.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of asimadoline in patients who have undergone a laparoscopic segmental colectomy and determine whether it reduces the time to recovery of bowel function compared to placebo.
