Nasal cavities, extending from the nares to the NASOPHARYNX, are lined with ciliated NASAL MUCOSA.Fatal Outcome: Death resulting from the presence of a disease in an individual, as shown by a single case report or a limited number of patients. This should be differentiated from DEATH, the physiological cessation of life and from MORTALITY, an epidemiological or statistical concept.Treatment Outcome: Evaluation undertaken to assess the results or consequences of management and procedures used in combating disease in order to determine the efficacy, effectiveness, safety, and practicability of these interventions in individual cases or series.Postoperative Complications: Pathologic processes that affect patients after a surgical procedure. They may or may not be related to the disease for which the surgery was done, and they may or may not be direct results of the surgery.Time Factors: Elements of limited time intervals, contributing to particular results or situations.Disease Models, Animal: Naturally occurring or experimentally induced animal diseases with pathological processes sufficiently similar to those of human diseases. They are used as study models for human diseases.Rats, Wistar: A strain of albino rat developed at the Wistar Institute that has spread widely at other institutions. This has markedly diluted the original strain.Dental Cavity Preparation: An operation in which carious material is removed from teeth and biomechanically correct forms are established in the teeth to receive and retain restorations. A constant requirement is provision for prevention of failure of the restoration through recurrence of decay or inadequate resistance to applied stresses.

The initial effect of testicular torsion is obstruction of venous return. Depending on the duration and degree of cord rotation, testicular symptoms range from EDEMA to interrupted arterial flow and testicular pain. If blood flow to testis is absent for 4 to 6 h, SPERMATOGENESIS may be permanently lost.Blastocyst: A post-MORULA preimplantation mammalian embryo that develops from a 32-cell stage into a fluid-filled hollow ball of over a hundred cells. A blastocyst has two distinctive tissues. The outer layer of trophoblasts gives rise to extra-embryonic tissues.

Schistosomiasis mansoni in low transmission areas: abdominal ultrasound. (1/97)

In endemic areas with low prevalence and low intensity of infection, the diagnosis of hepatic pathology due to the Schistosoma mansoni infection is very difficult. In order to establish the hepatic morbidity, a double-blind study was achieved in Venezuelan endemic areas, with one group of patients with schistosomiasis and the other one of non-infected people, that were evaluated clinically and by abdominal ultrasound using the Cairo classification. Schistosomiasis diagnosis was established based on parasitologic and serological tests. The increase of the hepatic size at midclavicular and midsternal lines (in hepatometry) and the hard liver consistency were the clinical parameters able to differentiate infected persons from non infected ones, as well as the presence of left lobe hepatomegaly detected by abdominal ultrasound. The periportal thickening, especially the mild form, was frequent in all age groups in both infected and uninfected patients. There was not correlation between the intensity of infection and ultrasound under the current circumstances. Our data suggest that in Venezuela, a low endemic area of transmission of schistosomiasis, the hepatic morbidity is mild and uncommon. The Cairo classification seems to overestimate the prevalence of periportal pathology. The specificity of the method must be improved, especially for the recognition of precocious pathology. Other causes of hepatopathies must be investigated.  (+info)

Sympathetic neural activation in visceral obesity. (2/97)

BACKGROUND: Muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA) is elevated in obese humans. However, the potential role of abdominal visceral fat as an important adipose tissue depot linking obesity to elevated MSNA has not been explored. Accordingly, we tested the hypothesis that MSNA would be increased in men (age=18 to 40 years, body mass index < or =35 kg/m2) with higher abdominal visceral fat (HAVF; n=13, abdominal visceral fat=118.1+/-15.8 cm2) compared with their age- (28.7+/-2.4 versus 25.5+/-2.0 years, P>0.05), total fat mass-matched (20.6+/-2.1 versus 20.8+/-2.4 kg, P>0.05) and abdominal subcutaneous fat-matched (230.6+/-24.9 versus 261.4+/-34.8 cm(2), P>0.05) peers with lower abdominal visceral fat levels (LAVF; n=13, visceral fat= 73.0+/-6.0 cm2). METHODS AND RESULTS: MSNA (microneurography), body composition (dual energy x-ray absorptiometry), and abdominal visceral and subcutaneous fat (computed tomography) were measured in 37 sedentary men across a wide range of adiposity. MSNA was approximately 55% higher in men with HAVF compared with men with LAVF (33+/-4 versus 21+/-2 bursts/min, P<0.05). Furthermore, MSNA was more closely associated with the level of abdominal visceral fat (r=0.65, P<0.05) than total fat mass (r=0.323, P<0.05) or abdominal subcutaneous fat (r=0.27, P=0.05). The relation between MSNA and abdominal visceral fat was independent of total body fat (r=0.61, P<0.05). CONCLUSIONS: The results of our study indicate that MSNA is elevated in men with visceral obesity. Our observations are consistent with the idea that abdominal visceral fat is an important adipose tissue depot linking obesity with sympathetic neural activation in humans. Furthermore, these findings may have important implications for understanding the increased risk of developing cardiovascular diseases in individuals with visceral obesity.  (+info)

The effect of intra-abdominal pressure on the generation of 8-iso prostaglandin F2alpha during laparoscopy in rabbits. (3/97)

BACKGROUND: Carbon dioxide pneumoperitoneum induces peritoneal oxidative stress. The aim of this study was to verify the effect of intra-abdominal pressure on oxidative stress in the peritoneum and on post-operative adhesion formation. METHODS: Forty-one rabbits underwent laparoscopic surgery: either gasless, or with CO(2)-pneumoperitoneum at pressures of 5, 10 or 15 mmHg. Serial parietal peritoneal biopsies were taken at various time-points: immediately after reaching the abdominal cavity, 30, 60, 90 and 120 min afterwards, and 15 min after abdominal desufflation. 8-iso prostaglandin F(2alpha) (8-iso PGF(2alpha)), a marker of oxidative stresss, was assayed by enzyme immunoassay and adhesion formation was scored by second-look laparoscopy on day 14. RESULTS: The gasless group showed no significant changes in 8-iso PGF(2alpha). Conversely, significant changes occurred in CO(2)-pneumoperitoneum in a time- and pressure-dependent manner. Adhesions developed only in the CO(2)-pneumoperitoneum groups, and total adhesion score was correlated with the amount of CO(2) insufflated and intra-abdominal pressure, but not with 8-iso PGF(2alpha), which was correlated with intra-abdominal pressure. CONCLUSION: Intra-abdominal pressure increased 8-iso PGF(2alpha) in the parietal peritoneum in a graded fashion, whilst gasless laparoscopy had no impact. It also influenced the frequency and severity of adhesion formation, but no causal link was found between 8-iso PGF(2alpha) and post-operative adhesion formation.  (+info)

Granulomatous uveitis associated with vaccination in the atlantic salmon. (4/97)

This study addressed histologic and immunopathologic changes in ocular tissues and investigated the distribution of major histocompatibility class II (MHC class II)-positive cells in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) suffering from severe postvaccination disease. Twenty-nine fish with generalized inflammation, probably a result of vaccination, were investigated. One individual that had escaped vaccination was included in the study. Material was investigated by cultivation methods for fungi and bacteria. Histology using conventional staining procedures and immunohistochemistry with antisera against MHC class II beta chain were performed. No growth was observed from the cultivation investigations. Histology revealed occlusion of the lumen in the larger choroid vessels and in the choriocapillaris, inflammatory infiltrations and loss of structure in the choroid rete, and, in some cases, aggregations of multinucleated giant cells (MGC) and Splendore-Hoeppli material. Immunohistochemistry demonstrated massive MHC class II+ cellular infiltrations in the uveal tract. Such infiltrations were also seen in the ventral ciliary cleft, a condition that is associated with glaucoma. Immunoreactive cells included dendritelike cells, epithelioid cells, and MGCs. The endothelia of smaller vessels were frequently MHC class II+, and immunoreactive infiltrations were seen in the optic nerve in several individuals. No pathologic changes were detected in the unvaccinated individual. In conclusion, generalized inflammatory reactions in fish may lead to severe ocular inflammation, occlusion of uveal vessels, and perivascular changes with MHC class II+ upregulation in cells in the uveal tract and optic nerve.  (+info)

Abdominal wall closure with ePTFE--Goretex Dual Mesh after detensive laparotomy for abdominal compartment syndrome. (5/97)

INTRODUCTION: Detensive laparotomy is the first choice treatment for abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS). Tension free closure of the abdominal wall with the use of prosthesis is a broadly diffused technique; the polypropylene and the ePTFE (expanded polytetrafluoroethylene--Goretex Dual Mesh) are the most commonly used materials. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We report our experience on five patients affected by ACS submitted to detensive laparotomy and positioning of a wide Goretex Dual Mesh prosthesis. RESULTS: In our initial experience ACS has been treated with success through detensive laparotomy and there were no complications related to the use of Goretex. DISCUSSION: Even though limited, our initial clinical experience is favorable to the use of Goretex Dual Mesh as first choice material for reconstruction of the abdominal wall after detensive laparotomy for ACS.  (+info)

Moderate increase in intraabdominal pressure attenuates gastric mucosal oxygen saturation in patients undergoing laparoscopy. (6/97)

BACKGROUND: Perioperative disturbances of microvascular blood flow and oxygenation in the intestinal tract have been hypothesized to play an important role in development of the multiple organ dysfunction syndrome. Herein, increased intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) has been identified as a key factor in the initiation of the pathophysiologic cascade. The authors hypothesized that increasing the IAP by intraperitoneal insufflation of carbon dioxide attenuates microvascular oxygen saturation in gastric mucosa. They tested this hypothesis in a prospective, observational study in 16 patients scheduled to undergo elective diagnostic laparoscopy. METHODS: The authors continuously assessed microvascular oxygen saturation in gastric mucosa by reflectance spectrophotometry. Simultaneously systemic oxygen saturation, heart rate, arterial blood pressure, and ventilation-derived variables were measured noninvasively. During general anesthesia and controlled mechanical ventilation, baseline values were obtained. Thereafter, the IAP was increased to 8 and 12 mmHg, respectively, followed by a control period after desufflation. RESULTS: The increase in IAP from baseline to 8 mmHg decreased microvascular oxygen saturation in gastric mucosa from 69+/-7% (mean +/- SD) to 63+/-8% at 8 mmHg IAP (P <0.05), with a further significant reduction to 54+/-13% at 12 mmHg IAP (P <0.01). Microvascular oxygen saturation in gastric mucosa recovered rapidly to baseline level (66 +/- 10%) after release of increased IAP. In striking contrast to regional mucosal oxygen saturation, systemic oxygenation did not change with either of the interventions. CONCLUSIONS: The results suggest that increasing intraabdominal pressure to moderate levels, commonly applied to induce a surgical pneumoperitoneum, decreases gastric mucosal oxygen saturation.  (+info)

Intraperitoneal injection of lipopolysaccharide induces dynamic migration of Gr-1high polymorphonuclear neutrophils in the murine abdominal cavity. (7/97)

Intraperitoneal injection of lipopolysaccharide (LPS; 100 microg) in mice resulted in the disappearance of almost all proteose peptone-induced polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMNs) with high-level fluorescence for the cell surface marker Gr-1 (Gr-1(high)) at 15 min postinjection, followed by doubling of their proportion at 30 min postinjection. High staining levels of 3'-acetyl-2'-carboxyl-6',7'-(dihyropyran-2'-one)-5 or 6-carboxyfluorescein diacethoxylmethyl ester-labeled PMNs injected into the peritoneal cavity were detected in mesenteric lymph nodes 15 min postinjection of LPS. Therefore, the time of decrease of Gr-1(high) PMNs coincided with that of the increase in cell accumulation in mesenteric lymph nodes. Since milk fat globule-EGF factor 8 (MFG-E8), which is secreted by macrophages, bound many PMNs exhibiting Gr-1(high) and Gr-1(medium) at 30 min postinjection of LPS, the staining level of annexin V on those cells was very low because its binding site is the same as the receptor for MFG-E8. At 60 min postinjection of LPS, the proportion of Gr-1(high) PMNs decreased, and almost all Gr-1(medium) PMNs tended to shift to the right compared with those at 30 min postinjection. The geomeans of Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) expression on PMNs at 15, 30, and 60 min postinjection of LPS were 63, 66, and 24%, respectively, compared with that on normal PMNs, indicating that the expression of TLR4 decreases in response to exposure to LPS. Our results suggest that LPS induced PMN death and that many PMNs expressing Gr-1(high) undergo apoptosis 180 min postinjection of LPS.  (+info)

Potential therapeutic role of histatin derivative P-113d in experimental rat models of Pseudomonas aeruginosa sepsis. (8/97)

BACKGROUND: Morbidity and mortality from Pseudomonas aeruginosa sepsis remain high despite the availability of antibiotics to which the microorganism is sensitive. METHODS: The in vitro activity of histatin derivative P-113d was investigated against Pseudomonas aeruginosa. In addition, its in vivo efficacy was studied in 3 rat models of infection: intraperitoneal injection of 1 mg of P. aeruginosa 10 lipopolysachharide, intraperitoneal injection of 2 x 10(10) cfu of P. aeruginosa ATCC 27853, and intra-abdominal sepsis induced by cecal ligation and puncture. Rats received isotonic sodium chloride solution parenterally (control groups), 1 mg of P-113d/kg of body weight, 1 mg of polymyxin B/kg of body weight, or 20 mg of imipenem/kg of body weight. Main outcomes measured were abdominal exudate and plasma bacterial growth, plasma concentrations of endotoxin and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)- alpha, and lethality. RESULTS: The in vivo studies showed that all compounds reduced lethality, when compared with results for the control group. Overall, P-113d exhibited a slightly lower antimicrobial activity than did imipenem, even though P-113d achieved a substantial decrease in plasma concentrations of endotoxin and TNF- alpha, compared with the imipenem. No statistically significant differences for antimicrobial and antiendotoxin activities were noted between P-113d and polymyxin B. DISCUSSION: These results provide evidence for double antiendotoxin and antimicrobial activity for P-113d and point to its potential use for the treatment of severe infections.  (+info)

Increased IAP often coexists with sepsis in severely ill patients in the ICU, under mechanical ventilation and pharmaceutical support of the circulation with inotropes and vasoactive drugs. Both conditions have an unfavorable effect on the cardiovascular system. The purpose of this experimental study was to record the effect of increased intra-abdominal pressure on the cardiovascular system of pigs, with or without additional sepsis. Sixteen male pigs were randomly assigned in two groups A and B. In both groups, after induction to anesthesia and mechanical ventilation, the intra-abdominal pressure was increased to 25mmHg by helium insufflation in the peritoneal cavity, and that level of IAP was preserved until the end of the experiment. In Group A no other intervention apart from the increase in IAP was made, whereas in Group B, 60 minutes after the increase in IAP, 100μg/kg LPS were administered. Data were recorded after induction of anesthesia and initiation of mechanical ventilation ...

Intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) is defined as a sustained elevation in intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) greater than or equal to 12 mmHg. IAH has been shown to cause organ derangements and dysfunction in the body. Objective screening of IAH is neither done early enough nor at all thus leading to significant morbidity and mortality among surgical patients. The epidemiology and outcome of IAH among surgical patients has not been documented in Uganda. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence, incidence and outcome of intra-abdominal hypertension among patients undergoing emergency laparotomy. Prospective observational study, conducted from January to April 2015 among patients undergoing emergency laparotomy.

The importance of intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) and abdominal perfusion pressure (APP) in cirrhotic patients with septic shock is not well studied. We evaluated the relationship between IAP and APP and outcomes of cirrhotic septic patients, and assessed the ability of these measures compared to other common resuscitative endpoints to differentiate survivors from nonsurvivors. This study was a post hoc analysis of a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trial in which mean arterial pressure (MAP), central venous oxygen saturation (ScvO2) and IAP were measured every 6 h in 61 cirrhotic septic patients admitted to the intensive care unit. APP was calculated as MAP - IAP. Intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) was defined as mean IAP ≥ 12 mmHg, and abdominal hypoperfusion as mean APP | 60 mmHg. Measured outcomes included ICU and hospital mortality, need for renal replacement therapy (RRT) and ventilator- and vasopressor-free days.

The flexible sack (18) with end opening is inserted in the cavity via the bush (18). Between the sack bottom (32) and its end opening is a side opening (34), and which is inside the cavity when the sack is fully inserted apart from its end opening. When the sack is pulled out far enough for the side opening to be on the outside, a portion of the sack still on the inside accommodates the tissue (36). The sack can be folded inside an insertion and locking bush (20) fitted inside the screwed one. Inside the sack is a guide bar detachable from the sack bottom. This thrusts the sack out of the insertion bush and into the abdominal cavity.
An abdominal tap is used for removing fluid from the area between the spine and the abdominal wall. This space is referred to as the abdominal cavity. The excess fluid present in the abdominal cavity is known as ascites. Under normal conditions, there should be no fluid or ascites within the abdominal cavity. When fluid is present in the abdominal cavity, there can be pain, bloating, and difficulty in breathing. An abdominal tap is also known as abdominal paracentesis.

When you think about exercising core muscles, do you remember your diaphragm? Its two main functions involve breathing and biomechanics, and its one of the most important muscles for maintaining intra-abdominal pressure (Nelson 2012). Intra-abdominal pressure is like a weight belt applied from the inside. If your body cant regulate this pressure, you may experience poor motor control and lack of spinal stability. Plus, when the diaphragm is not properly engaged, other muscles must compensate, increasing your risk of injury. ...
When Donna Robinson was 14 weeks pregnant, she received the news that her baby had gastroschisis.. "We were terrified and worried. We had no idea what gastroschisis was other than what the ultrasound doctor told us - that there was a hold in her abdominal cavity and her intestines were outside," Donna remembers.. Due to her babys condition, Donna arranged to give birth at Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children.. Immediately after Aziel was born, the resuscitation team took the baby girl to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), where her intestines were pushed back into her abdominal cavity over the course of the next four days.. "At 5 days old she was taken back to surgery to close the hold in her abdomen," Donna says.. Aziel wasnt able to go home until she was 22 days old, but Donna says that the care her daughter and entire ohana received during that time was immeasurable.. "Aziel received great care from all the doctors, nurses and staff," Donna says. "All the staff at her ...
This dialysis treatment method uses the patients peritoneum (the tissue that covers the inner surface of the abdominal cavity and the abdominal organs) as the dialysing membrane for blood purification. A sterile dialysis solution is introduced and removed through a catheter that has been surgically implanted into the abdominal cavity of the patient. The solution absorbs toxins and excess water. Most treatments are supported by a machine, the cycler, and are administered by the patients in their home or workplace several times a day or during the night.. ...
These little glands are kind of pyramid shaped and situated on top of your kidneys, far back in your abdominal cavity, on each side of the spine.

In the latter option, my approach would be to develop a master design concept for the entire property, then develop more detailed plans for the areas that are most important to you now. So if you know youll want an outdoor dining room for entertaining, well focus on that area and its related spaces first - but we wont lose sight of the bigger picture in the meantime, and can pick up where we left off when you have the budget to develop your second most important area. Whats more, this gives your contractor a sense of the ultimate plan for the landscape as well, which may allow them to help you realize some efficiencies in construction (e.g. placing conduit beneath hardscaping for future landscape lighting, or installing capped irrigation lines for future planting areas). Its been my experience that most contractors are also happy to discuss the potential costs and phasing of master concepts, and to offer ideas to make sure youll actually be able to afford those brilliant ideas ...
Some people have metastatic cancer that is spread in the body in the typical way, which is through the blood stream. For those people, standard chemotherapy is by far the best.. Most of what this process treats are intra-abdominal cancers that, for reasons that arent totally clear, sometimes metastasize not by getting into the blood stream and going to different organs, but actually spilling over into the abdominal cavity.. We rely on CAT scans and MRI scans to show us the location and distribution of the tumors, which can help us decide if someone qualifies for HIPEC.. ...

We do not encounter abdominal compartment syndrome often in the emergency department. With that said, this diagnosis enters our differential from time to time. Consider the patient with an active arterial bleed from a liver mass with large hemoperitoneum who is transferred from an outside institution for IR embolization. His abdomen is rock solid, and his lactate is 10. While you address his hemorrhagic shock, you have to at least consider the possibility of abdominal compartment syndrome. This is a case I was involved in several months ago; IR emergently drained his hemoperitoneum given the concern for abdominal compartment syndrome.. Abdominal compartment syndrome results from a sustained increase in intraabdominal pressure. The resulting decreased perfusion pressure to the viscera leads to ischemia and organ failure. While more common in post surgical patients in the ICU, this is a diagnosis the emergency physician should be familiar with.. Risk factors in ED population (this is far from a ...

The treatment of patients with peritonitis remains an urgent problem in surgery despite the development of new surgical technologies and the success of pharmacology. Great attention has been paid lately to intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) and abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) in common peritonitis as factors of multiple organ failure syndrome (MOFS) [1-8]. However, there are no data on the performance of intra-abdominal hypertension at different pathology and the frequency of ACS. There are not enough studies on the relationship between the severity of ACS with endogenous intoxication and MODS. The purpose: we have to study the data of intra-abdominal hypertension and the frequency of in ACS patients with acute abdominal pathology. Materials and methods of research We have studied the course of disease in 97 patients with widespread peritonitis who were treated in the Civil Emergency Care Hospital in Krasnodar in 2011. The average patient age was 55,9 ± 16,7 years. The severity of the ...
Several decades ago, the beneficial effects of goal-directed therapy, which include decompressive laparotomy (DL) and open abdomen procedures in cases of intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) in children, were proven in the context of closures of abdominal wall defects and large-for-size organ transplantations. Different neonatologic and pediatric disease patterns are also known to be capable of increasing intra-abdominal pressure (IAP). Nevertheless, a considerable knowledge transfer regarding such risk factors has hardly taken place. When left undetected and untreated, IAH threatens to evolve into abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS), which is accompanied by a mortality rate of up to 60% in children. Therefore, the present study looks at the recognition and knowledge of IAH/ACS among German pediatric intensivists. In June 2010, a questionnaire was mailed to the heads of pediatric intensive care units of 205 German pediatric hospitals. The response rate was 62%. At least one case of IAH was reported by 36

Our study aims to emphasize the novelty of female rats in regard to their hemodynamic changes in response to abdominal compartment syndrome. A group of 64 rats was randomly divided into 4 subgroups for each gender. Except for the control, intra-abdominal pressure was increased to 10, 20, 30 mmHg. Survival time, mean arterial pressure, pH and lactate were determined at different time intervals. As IAP was 20 mmHg, a statistically difference was seen between the male group and the female group starting from 15 min (126 ± 9.7 mmHg, 124 ± 14.7 mmHg respectively, p | 0.02) and lasting 2 h. At 30 mmHg, a statistically difference was seen between 30 to 60 min (p | 0.05). Only group 2 presented results with statistical power both at 30 and at 60 min concerning pH (p = 0.003, p | 0.001 respectively). In the lactate measurements at IAP of 10 mmHg, at 60 min male lactate level was 3.93 ± 1.13 and 2.25 ± 0.33 in female rats (p = 0.034). Female rats that were subjected to IAP of 20 mmHg and 30 mmHg had

Abstract Damage control resuscitation may lead to postoperative intra-abdominal hypertension or abdominal compartment syndrome. These conditions may result in a vicious, self-perpetuating cycle leading to severe physiologic derangements and multiorgan failure unless interrupted by abdominal (surgical or other) decompression. Further, in some clinical situations, the abdomen cannot be closed due to the visceral edema, the inability to control the compelling source of infection or the necessity to re-explore (as a "planned second-look" laparotomy) or complete previously initiated damage control procedures or in cases of abdominal wall disruption. The open abdomen in trauma and non-trauma patients has been proposed to be effective in preventing or treating deranged physiology in patients with severe injuries or critical illness when no other perceived options exist. Its use, however, remains controversial as it is resource consuming and represents a non-anatomic situation with the potential for ...

In the last decade, an exponential increase in intraabdominal hypertension (IAH) and abdominal compartment syndrome reports appear in literature. Pathophysiologic implications due to increased intraabdominal pressure (IAP) on organ function within the abdomen are transcendental critically ill neonate, pediatric and adult patients. This review focuses on the available literature on definitions, epidemiology, measurement, pathophysiologic implications, radiological findings and treatment. Key messages: (1) Body mass index and fluid resuscitation are independent predictors of IAH. (2) IAH increases intrathoracic, intracranial and intracardiac filling pressure and decreases left ventricular, chest wall and respiratory tract compliance. (3) IAH causes ...

This was a cross sectional descriptive study involving surgical patients in critical care units at KNH, carried out from March 2015 to October 2015. One hundred and thirteen critically ill and ventilated patients 13 years or older were recruited into the study. Krohns intravesical method was used to measure intra- abdominal pressure (IAP). Measurements were done at first contact, then at 12 and 24 h. Additional parameters recorded included: laboratory tests such as serum bilirubin and total blood count as well as clinical parameters such as urine output, vital signs and peak airway pressure, among others. Frequency, means and standard deviation were used to describe the data. Categorical variables e.g. age, were analysed using Chi square test and continous variables using student t test and Mann Whitney test as appropriate RESULT: A total of 113 consecutive surgical patients admitted to the critical care units were recruited. Of our study population, 71.7% (by IAP max) and 67.3% (by IAP mean) ...

Background: In 2009, a classification system for the open abdomen was introduced. The aim of such a classification is to aid the (1) description of the patients clinical course; (2) standardization of clinical guidelines for guiding open abdomen management; and (3) facilitation of comparisons between studies and heterogeneous patient populations, thus serving as an aid in clinical research. Methods: As part of the revision of the definitions and clinical guidelines performed by the World Society of the Abdominal Compartment Syndrome, this 2009 classification system was amended following a review of experiences in teaching and research and published as part of updated consensus statements and clinical practice guidelines in 2013. Among 29 articles citing the 2009 classification system, nine were cohort studies. They were reviewed as part of the classification revision process. A total of 542 patients (mean: 60, range: 9-160) had been classified. Two problems with the previous classification ...

hemodialysisPeritoneal dialysis: In peritoneal dialysis the patients own body tissues inside of the belly (abdominal cavity) acts as a filter. The intestines lie in the abdominal cavity, the space between the abdominal wall and the spine. A plastic tube called a "dialysis catheter" is placed through the abdominal wall into the abdominal cavity. A special fluid is then flushed into the abdominal cavity and bathes the intestines. The intestinal walls act as a filter between this fluid and the blood stream. By using different types of solutions, waste products and excess water can be removed from the body.. Hemodialysis: In hemodialysis, your blood is allowed to flow, a few ounces at a time, through a special filter in a dialysis machine that removes wastes and extra fluids. The clean blood is then returned to your body. Removing the harmful wastes and extra salt and fluids helps control your blood pressure and keep the proper balance of chemicals like potassium and sodium in your body.. Dr. ...

Thanks for inquiring Kim. Its been quite hectic this past weekend, so I didnt really have the energy to update. My moms surgery was on Saturday (10/15/16) and ended up starting later than scheduled. Due to it being the weekend, the staffing seemed to be short and we had to check in through ER. We ended having to stand about 45 minutes in the ER before being issued a room. There were a bunch of mix-ups and miscommunication among the limited staff, which really didnt bode well for the rest of the day. Surgery took about 2 hours. Although the surgeon told us that the surgery went well (which I am grateful for), he had to reopen all the laparoscopic incisions from the first surgery and actually had to enlarge one of the incisions to remove her lesser omentum. I mentioned previously that her PET/CT scans showed that there was hypermetabolic fluid in my moms pelvic area.

One cause of GI issues- including SIBO- is abdominal adhesions, also known as ARD which stands for Adhesion Related Disorders. There can be many causes of adhesions- inflammation, endometriosis (which is very underdiagnosed), radiation treatments, surgery, injuries, auto accidents, burst ovarian cysts, to name some. I suspect that a certain % of IBS and SIBO patients actually have ARD but dont, and may never, know it. Adhesions do not show up on imaging tests. I have heard about a test is Europe, called a Functional Cine MRI, as being possibly able to diagnose them, but have never heard of it being used for this purpose in the US, except for imaging the brain.. In any case, even if you are pretty certain that you are affected by abdominal and/or pelvic adhesions, you are not likely to find any help from them. Drs do not like to talk about adhesions- supposedly, because the only way to definitively diagnose them is via exploratory laparoscopy, which they are reluctant to do, and insurance ...

A successful immune response against invading pathogens relies on the efficient activation of host defense mechanisms and a timely return to immune homeostasis. Despite their importance, these mechanisms remain ill-defined in most animal groups. This study focuses on the acute inflammatory response of chickens, important both as an avian model with a unique position in evolution as well as an increasingly notable target of infectious zoonotic diseases. We took advantage of an in vivo self-resolving intra-abdominal challenge model to provide an integrative view of leukocyte responses during the induction and resolution phases of acute inflammation. Our results showed rapid leukocyte infiltration into the abdominal cavity post zymosan challenge (significant increase as early as 4 h), which was dominated by heterophils. Peak leukocyte infiltration and ROS production reached maximum levels at 12 h post challenge, which was significantly earlier than comparative studies in teleost fish and mice. Both ...
Laparoscopy (pronounced lap-a-ROSS-coe-pee) is a surgical procedure performed through very small incisions in the abdomen, using specialized instruments. A pencil-thin instrument called a laparoscope is used, and it gives the surgeon an exceptionally clear view, on a TV monitor, of the inside of the abdominal cavity.

too much fluid in the brain. The brain is kept buoyant in the skull by cerebrospinal fluid, which is continually produced and reabsorbed. Either blocking the flow out of fluid, or reabsorption, will result in hydrocephalus. Only in infants does this enlarge the head, since the bones of the skull are not yet fused. Causes include congenital defects, meningitis, tumours, injury. Treatments include shunting, which drains the excess fluid out of the brain, generally into the abdominal cavity. It sometimes corrects itself ...
If you are rescued by paramedics, stabilized for transport, and immediately brought into the operating room, you will not be patched up and quickly released.
