Methods: Twenty-seven anesthetized pigs were studied during PP with insufflations to 12 mmHg by either 1/CO2, 2/ air or 3/CO2 during intravenous nitroprusside infusion (SNP) (N.=9 in each group). In 3 pigs in each group, gamma camera technique (SPECT) was used to study ventilation and perfusion distributions, in another 6 pigs an inert-gas technique (MIGET) was used for assessing ventilation-perfusion matching (VA/Q). Measurements were made during anesthesia before and after 60 minutes of PP ...
Laparoscopic alternatives to conventional surgical procedures confer many advantages to patients including reduced postoperative pain, shortened convalescence and, perhaps, improved disease-related outcomes. The diminished degree of immune dysfunction apparent with these techniques may underpin these beneficial aspects. However, minimal access is accompanied by various ancillary anesthetic and mechanical associations (including the induction of a carbon dioxide pneumoperitoneum), which must be considered in addition to reduced tissue trauma when attempting to correlate cause with effect. Furthermore, the opportunity to establish causation between the immunomodulatory aspects of laparoscopy and subsequent clinical outcome by prospective, randomized study is difficult because of the rapid incorporation of minimal access techniques into clinical practice. Therefore, experimental in vitro and in vivo studies must be used to complement the limitations of clinical studies in this area. Although the ...
The primary objective of the present trial is to investigate, the mean operative time and to study the frequency and intensity of postoperative shoulder tip pain in patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery, i.e. cholecystectomy, colorectal surgery, hernia repair with AirSeal® compared with standard pressure CO2 insufflation systems. The primary hypothesis is that patients operated with AirSeal® have a shorter mean operative time and decreased frequency and intensity of postoperative shoulder tip pain compared with patients undergoing surgery with standard pressure CO2 insufflation systems.. It is the secondary objective of the trial to evaluate immunologic and anaesthesiological aspects of laparoscopic cholecystectomy, colorectal surgery and laparoscopic hernia repair by observing the immune responses and volume of mechanical ventilation of the two groups through measuring various immunologic factors and ventilation volume/CO2 elimination volume. Surgical side effects will also be measured as ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Effects of laparoscopy on tumor growth. AU - Moreno, Eduardo F.. AU - Nelson, Heidi. AU - Carugno, Francesco. AU - Hodge, David. AU - Mozes, Geza. AU - Thompson, Geoffrey B.. PY - 2000/10/26. Y1 - 2000/10/26. N2 - Laparoscopic resections of colon cancer may affect survival. To address the effects of pneumoperitoneum on tumor cell biology, we developed an experimental model. Mice were injected with colonic tumor cells. Local and systemic effects of pneumoperitoneum were evaluated. Treated mice were randomly assigned to a control group, an open cecectomy group, or a laparoscopic-simulated cecectomy group. When a tumor inoculum was injected into the peritoneal cavity, the frequency of tumors was not significantly different for mice in the laparoscopic-simulated and open cecectomy groups (60% vs 62%, respectively). There was no significant difference in survival time between the laparoscopic-simulated and open cecectomy groups, with median survivals of 24 days versus 22 days, ...

BACKGROUND: Portal triad clamping (PTC) may be required during laparoscopic liver resection to limit blood loss. The aim of this study was to test in a swine model the hypothesis that during laparoscopic PTC, increased intraperitoneal pressure may alter hepatic vein reverse circulation, inducing a more severe hepatic ischemia compared with PTC performed in laparotomy. METHODS: Fifteen pigs were randomized into three groups: laparoscopy (1 h of pneumoperitoneum at 15 mmHg and 3 h of surveillance), open PTC (1 h PTC through laparotomy and 3 h of reperfusion), and laparoscopic PTC (1 h PTC with 15 mmHg pneumoperitoneum and 3 h of reperfusion). PTC was performed under mesenteric decompression using a veno-venous splenofemoral ...

BACKGROUND: Although we have insufficient knowledge about the effects of Trendelenburg positions on various hemodynamic parameters, these positions are frequently used to influence cardiac output and blood pressure in critically ill patients. OBJECTIVES: To determine the effect of Trendelenburg and modified Trendelenburg positions on five dependent variables: cardiac output, cardiac index, mean arterial pressure, systemic vascular resistance, and oxygenation in critically ill patients. METHODS: In this preliminary study subjects were 23 cardiac surgery patients (mean age, 55; SD, 8.09) who had a pulmonary artery catheter for cardiac output determination and who were clinically stable, normovolemic and normotensive. Baseline measurements of the dependent variables were taken in the supine position. Patients were then placed in 10 degrees Trendelenburg or 30 degrees modified Trendelenburg position. The dependent variables were measured after 10 minutes in each position. A 2-period, 2-treatment ...
Study patients: 11 consecutive adults with a diagnosis of pneumoperitoneum by CT. Control patients: 11 consecutive adults with severe acute abdominal pain with a diagnosis other than pneumoperitoneum by CT. US examination has been performed with a convex and a linear probe using the following scans: epigastrium, right and left hypocondrium, umbelical area and right hypocondrium. All exams were recorded in a video of 5 seconds and each videos reviewed by 2 radiologists and 2 senior physicians blinded to other imaging studies. The reviewers fulfilled a standardized form signing for each scan either presence or absence of pneumoperitonem signs (enhancement of the peritoneum stripe with ring-down artifacts or "comet tails" starting from peritoneum). If one of the signs of pneumopeitoneum was present in at least one scan, the patient was considered to have a US diagnosis of pneumoperitoneum. The reviewers also evaluated abdomen radiography for the presence/absence of pneumoperitoneum. CT was ...

During procedure, surgeon (who was blinded to random assignment) could request that unblinded anesthetist change the randomized treatment conditions (called a rescue intervention), if surgeon considered surgical conditions to be unacceptable. This was to be done systematically as follows: If the participant is on standard NMB, the preferred rescue intervention should be to increase the NMB to a depth of 1-2 PTCs; for such a participant the second option (if participant is also on low insufflation pressure) should be the increase of insufflation pressure by 4 mm Hg. If the participant is already on deep NMB, the preferred option should be (if participant is also on low insufflation pressure) the increase of insufflation pressure by 4 mm Hg. The unblinded anesthetist recorded any rescue actions performed. This measure presents the number of participants: with any rescue action performed, with rescue change in depth of NMB, with rescue change in insufflation pressure level ...
OBJECTIVE To find out the duration of postoperative pneumoperitoneum and the factors that are responsible for its persistence. DESIGN Prospective open (non-random) study. SETTING County hospital, Denmark. SUBJECTS 32 patients over 18 years of age undergoing abdominal operations during a 6 month period. INTERVENTIONS Abdominal radiographs with the patient in the left lateral position were taken at fixed time intervals until no free air could be seen. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES The amount of free air and the time postoperatively by which it had disappeared. RESULTS In 20 [corrected] patients the air had disappeared within 48 hours and only one patient (3%) had free air for more than five days postoperatively. High body mass index and a small initial amount of free air were associated with the shortest period of postoperative pneumoperitoneum. CONCLUSION Postoperative pneumoperitoneum disappeared within two days in most patients. Heavier patients and patients with small volumes of free air
Laparoscopic surgery requires inflation of the abdominal cavity and this offers a unique opportunity to measure the mechanical properties of the living abdominal wall. We used a motion analysis system to study the abdominal wall motion of 18 patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery, and found that the mean Youngs modulus was 27.7+/-4.5 and 21.0+/-3.7 kPa for male and female, respectively. During inflation, the abdominal wall changed from a cylinder to a dome shape. The average expansion in the abdominal wall surface was 20%, and a working space of 1.27 x 10(-3)m(3) was created by expansion, reshaping of the abdominal wall and diaphragmatic movement. For the first time, the elasticity of human abdominal wall was obtained from the patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery, and a 3D simulation model of human abdominal wall has been developed to analyse the motion pattern in laparoscopic surgery. Based on this study, a mechanical abdominal wall lift and a surgical simulator for safe/ergonomic port

Popular wisdom says doctors cant help hypochondriacs.. After all, people determined to believe they have serious, undiagnosed illnesses tend to disregard evidence to the contrary.. Nonetheless, hypochondriacs account for an estimated one in twenty visits to primary-care physicians, delaying treatment for everyone else.. So, should doctors simply refuse to see suspected hypochondriacs? Experts say no, for three reasons:. First, hypochondria might not be the problem. The condition is hard to diagnose, and people develop obsessive health concerns for many reasons.. The second reason is that hypochondriacs do get sick. Without medical attention, real problems may go untreated.. The third reason is that physicians have a chance of convincing hypochondriacs to see mental-health professionals.. To do this, a doctor can suggest that the mystery symptoms might be caused by hypersensitivity to ordinary sensations. Another approach is to admit to being baffled and say the only thing left to do is help the ...
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 ...

space, perisplenic regions and spaces above and below the diaphragm), the subcostal region (to include the pericardial space) and the pelvis (retrovesical and retrouterine spaces). Free fluid is associated with numerous types of injury, which may be detected on ultrasound with varying success. These include rupture of the liver, spleen, kidney, pancreas or bowel (Fig. ULTRASOUND IMAGES BELOW). A notable limitation of sonography in the trauma situation is in detecting free fluid in the pelvis, as the bladder is frequently empty or underfilled, and the use of the Trendelenburg position, if possible, helps to reduce the number of false-negative results in this respect by allowing any free fluid to collect Ultrasound is more successful in detecting free fluid than in detecting organ injury directly.6,7 One study reported a 98% sensitivity for detection of fluid, but only 41% of organ injuries could be demonstrated.8 However, most of the published studies have concentrated only on the presence or ...
But back to my knee...so its been hurting ever since I came home from the hospital in July, not awful pain, just kinda annoying pain that I usually only noticed when I was at home and got up off the couch and couldnt straighten my left leg all the way.
