This multicenter study aims to evaluate the accuracy of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) in diagnosing abdominal solid organ injuries in pediatric patients. Up to 130 subjects will complete the study across approximately 5-10 sites in the US, with up to 30 patients in the training phase (3 per site) and 100 patients in the treatment phase of the study. All subjects will have had a CT scan as part of standard of care, confirming at least one solid organ abdominal injury. The study procedure will occur within 48 hours from time of 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 CT and ultrasound scans will be read locally and will undergo central review.
Background: The surgeries with upper abdominal wall incisions cause a severe pain and providing an adequate analgesia is an important challenge for the anesthesiologist. The serratus intercostal plane block (SIPB) has been already described as analgesic technique in open cholecystectomy. The aim of this study is to evaluate its analgesic efficacy in pain control, opioids consumption and recovery quality in upper abdominal surgeries. Methods: This blind, randomized controlled study was conducted on 102 patients undergoing open upper abdominal wall surgery under general anesthesia. All patients who received serratus intercostal plane block at the eighth rib as analgesic technique were included in group 0 (SIPB) and in Group 1 (control) those who received continuous intravenous morphine analgesia. In each group was evaluated pain scores in numeric verbal scale (NVS) and opioids consumption at 0,6,12,24 y 48h postoperative time. The quality of the postoperative recovery was evaluated with the modified Postoperative Quality of Recovery Score ( QoR-15 questionnaire) at 24h.
This study aimed to measure the effects of SIH and DH on the mortality outcomes of the adult patients with moderate to severe thoracoabdominal injury
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.
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.
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.
