Review of abdominal damage control and open abdomens: focus on gastrointestinal complications. (4/26)

Massive trauma and abdominal catastrophes carry high morbidity and mortality. In addition to the primary pathologic process, a secondary systemic injury, characterized by inflammatory mediator release, contributes to subsequent cellular, end-organ, and systemic dysfunction. These processes, in conjunction with large-volume resuscitations and tissue hypoperfusion, lead to acidosis, coagulopathy, and hypothermia. This "lethal triad" synergistically contributes to further physiologic derangements and, if uncorrected, may result in patient death. One manifestation of the associated clinical syndrome is the development of intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) and the abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS). The development of ACS is insidious. If not recognized and treated promptly, ACS leads to multi-system organ failure (MSOF) and mortality. Improved understanding of IAH and ACS led to the development of damage control (DC)/open abdomen (OA) as surgical decompressive strategy. The DC/OA approach consists of three basic management steps. During the initial step the abdomen is opened, hemorrhage/abdominal contamination are controlled, and temporary abdominal closure is performed (Stage I). The patient then enters Stage II - physiologic restoration with core rewarming, correction of coagulopathy and completion of acute resuscitation. After physiologic normalization, definitive management of injuries and eventual abdominal closure (Stage III) are achieved. The authors will provide an overview of the DC/OA approach, as well as the clinical diagnosis of ACS, followed by a discussion of DC/OA-associated complications, with focus on digestive system-specific complaints.  (+info)

The purpose of this large-animal study was to assess the safety and effects of negative pressure therapy (NPT) when used as temporary abdominal closure in the immediate post-decompression period after abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS). Using a hemorrhagic shock/resuscitation and mesenteric venous pressure elevation model, ACS was physiologically induced in 12 female Yorkshire swine. At decompression, animals were allocated to either NPT (n = 6) or Bogota bag (n = 6) as temporary abdominal closure and studied for a period of 48 h or until death. Outcomes measured included morbidity and mortality, as well as hemodynamic parameters, ventilator-related measurements, blood gases, coagulation factors, and organ (liver, kidney, lung, and intestinal) edema and histology at the time of death/sacrifice. All animals developed ACS. Early application of NPT was associated with decreases in mesenteric venous and central venous pressure, and significantly increased drainage of peritoneal fluid.

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 ...
Acelity subsidiary KCI said today that it launched its Abthera open abdomen negative pressure therapy system in Japan.. The San Antonio-based companys Abthera is a temporary abdominal closure system intended to allow surgeons to manage challenging abdominal wall openings where primary closure is not possible and to manage repeat abdominal entries.. KCI said that the system has be validated in clinical studies, showing increased patient survival, improved primary fascial closure rates, shorter intensive care unit stays and improved outcomes.. When dealing with patients managed with damage control for severe abdominal hemorrhage, abdominal compartment syndrome or severe peritonitis, using Abthera Therapy has been shown to be associated with proven patient outcomes. With the introduction of Abthera Therapy in Japan, clinicians now have a clinically demonstrated solution for a previously unmet, significant need, that manages the open abdomen at critical times, helping to achieve primary fascial ...
Travis Landon Barker (s. 14. marraskuuta 1975 Fontana, Kalifornia) on yhdysvaltalainen rumpali. Hänen yhtyeitään ovat olleet muun muassa Blink-182, The Transplants, +44 ja Box Car Racer.

Barker se často obrací pro inspiraci k historickým událostem. Například jeho hra Scény z popravy se zabývá následky Bitvy u Lepanta (1571) kdy fiktivní umělkyně byla pověřena vytvořením pamětního obrazu benátského vítězství nad Osmanskou flotilou. Hra byla původně napsána pro rozhlasovou stanici Radio 3 v roce 1984, kdy hlavní roli vytvoiřila Glenda Jackson, později byla hra upravena pro divadlo. Krátká hra Judith čerpá námět z biblického příběhu o Judith, legendární hrdince, která zabila generála Holoferna. V jiných hrách Barker reaguej na náměty ze slavných literárních děl. Brutopia je reakcí na Utopii Thomase Mora. Minna je cynické dílo inspirované komedií Gottholda Ephraima Lessinga Osvícení. Ve Strýčku Váňovi představuje alternativní vizi stejnojmenného Čechovova dramatu. Pro Barkera je Čechov dramatik dobré víry, spisovatel, který nás povzbuzuje, abychom uvažovali sentimentálně o našich vlastních slabostech a ...
It was a cold Belfast Sunday afternoon at Cathedral Quarters Out to Lunch Festival. The fare was two-course.. There was Australian singer-songwriter, musician, and composer Emily Barker, whos now based in London.

The Tidal Model of nursing, created by Phil Barker, Poppy Buchanan-Barker and their colleagues, is widely used in mental health nursing. It views health and illness as fluid, and life as a journey undertaken on an ocean of experience. However, it states that patients can become physically, emotionally, or spiritually shipwrecked. This metaphor of water throughout the theory should be appreciated by nurses to help them gain a better understanding of the patients current situation, as well as the inevitability of change.. Barkers model includes six philosophical assumptions: a belief in the virtue of curiosity; recognition of the power of resourcefulness; respect for the patients wishes; acceptance of the paradox of crisis as opportunity; acknowledging that all goals must belong to the atient; and the virtue of pursuing elegance, which means the simplest possible means should be sought.. In order for the nurse to start the engagement process with the patient, six things must be accepted: ...
This paper explores the womens stories in Pat Barkers three earliest novels: Blow Your House Down, Lizas England and Union Street. Using Kristevas concepts of temporality from Womens time, it takes as its starting point the idea that Barkers women are trapped in a harsh cyclical timescale by gender, class and place. Motherhood therefore becomes another form of imprisonment, particularly when father figures are absent. Despite this, there are moments in the texts when women do experience connections that could be described as a more positive version of this cyclical time, one that gestures towards a female tradition, or genealogy. As this suggests, bonds between women in these novels, particularly mothers and daughters, are complex and often troubling, eschewing any easy version of female solidarity. They are more adequately described as bonds based on a complex mixture of fascination and distaste, evoking Luce Irigarays work on relationships between women. This paper examines these ...

A novel layered double hydroxide (LDH) nanoparticle/thermogel composite drug delivery system (DDS) for sustained release of brimonidine (Bri) has been designed, prepared, and characterized in this study for treatment of severe glaucoma. Brimonidine is first loaded onto LDH ([email protected]) nanoparticles, which are then dispersed in the thermogel consisting of plenty of micelles based on poly(dl-lactic acid-co-coglycolic acid)-polyethylene glycol-poly(dl-lactic acid-co-coglycolic acid) (PLGA-PEG-PLGA) copolymer. The [email protected]/Thermogel DDS containing 125.0 μg/g of brimonidine has been found to sustainably release the drug for up to 144 h, significantly extending the drug release period compared to that from [email protected] nanoparticles.

Introduction. To what extent do you agree that in Regeneration Barker question the notion of Heroism in wartime? Courage is generic, denoting fearlessness or defiance of danger; fortitude is passive courage, the habit of bearing up nobly under trials, danger, and sufferings; bravery is courage displayed in daring acts; valor is courage in battle or other conflicts with living opponents; intrepidity is firm courage, which shrinks not amid the most appalling dangers; gallantry is adventurous courage, dashing into the thickest of the fight. Heroism may call into exercise all these modifications of courage. It is a contempt of danger, not from ignorance or inconsiderate levity, but from a noble devotion to some great cause, and a just confidence of being able to meet danger in the spirit of such a cause. There are many different ways in which to show heroism, yet in this context there are only two, the first is contemporary societys definition of heroism, being that of someone who shows selfless ...
