• intra-abdominal
  • While some have favored the local anesthetic approach,9 the necessity for creation of pneumoperitoneum and careful intra-abdominal assessment with biopsy may require prolonged periods of examination which can only be accomplished under general anesthetic techniques. (barnardhealth.us)

  • Immediately after decompression, the intra-abdominal pressure dropped from 23 mmHg to 10 mmHg, and the respiratory, cardiovascular and renal functions improved markedly leading to full recovery.It is feasible, effective and might provide a chance of early fascial closure.Comparative studies are needed to define its role as a decompressive technique for ACS.

  • Eviscerating the intra-abdominal small bowel and packing all four abdominal quadrants usually will allow surgeons to establish initial hemorrhagic control. (wikipedia.org)
  • Once hemorrhage control is achieved one should quickly proceed to controlling intra-abdominal contamination from hollow-viscus organs. (wikipedia.org)
  • The key is to simply prevent continued intra-abdominal contamination, and to leave patients in discontinuity. (wikipedia.org)
  • fascia
  • Necrotizing fasciitis occurs when the rectus or lateral abdominal wall investing fascia becomes necrotic and undergoes dissolution from invasive infection arising from the surgical wound of the abdominal wall. (nih.gov)
  • Necrotizing fasciitis is a clinical diagnosis from the identification of necrotic and suppuration of the wound fascia. (nih.gov)
  • High risk of intestinal fistulas and frequent inability to close the fascia with ensuing planned ventral hernia has prompted the search for alternative techniques. (nih.gov)
  • The limited exposure of the blind technique did not allow complete division of the prepectoral fascia, resulting in the tendency of high-riding implants or the double-bubble appearance of the inframammary crease. (medscape.com)
  • ventral hernia
  • Population: 130 patients, diagnosed with clinic and radiologic (abdominal wall CT scan) ventral hernia, were recruited, after expressing their willingness, for either laparoscopic or laparotomy repair to be conducted at Infanta Elena Hospital, Huelva (Spain), between January 2005 and October 2008. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • surgeons
  • Kelly was one of the first surgeons to attempt to correct excess abdominal skin and fat. (medscape.com)
  • Surgeons can also apply manual pressure, perform hepatic packing, or even plugging penetrating wounds. (wikipedia.org)
  • Instruments using fiberoptics and endoscopic remote manipulation, combined with advances in technique, have resulted in consistently good results in the hands of appropriately trained surgeons. (medscape.com)
  • peritoneal
  • In case of the massive peritoneal hypertension both sheets cover the open space and the hook sheet does not need trimming to fit the wound opening. (wikipedia.org)
  • Diagnostic laparoscopy in the assessment of ascites or peritoneal malignancy may be undertaken using general anesthetic techniques or local infiltration with intravenous sedation in the awake patient. (barnardhealth.us)
  • Selection of patients and the technique utilized for laparoscopy in the assessment of patients with ascites and potential peritoneal malignancy depend heavily on the information to be gained from the study. (barnardhealth.us)
  • patients
  • While laparoscopy itself may be the prime mode of detection and confirmation of malignancy, more often patients who undergo laparoscopic examination have had a previous histologic confirmation by gastrointestinal endoscopic techniques or peripheral node biopsy. (barnardhealth.us)
  • Patients who have had previous abdominal procedures should be evaluated carefully for alternate sites of placement of the initial puncture for establishing pneumoperitoneum. (barnardhealth.us)
  • In patients with significant cardiac and respiratory disease who would not be candidates for open abdominal procedures because of the requirements for general anesthesia, laparoscopy may in fact prove hazardous because of the need for both general anesthesia and a significant pneumoperitoneum. (barnardhealth.us)
  • The full assessment of these patients must be performed using a complement of laparoscopy and imaging techniques since the laparoscope is only able to visualize surface lesions, even though these implants may be quite small. (barnardhealth.us)
  • With the addition of liposuction, Matarasso in 1988 expanded the use of abdominal contour surgery to a classification based on variations in patients' anatomy, from liposuction alone to limited and full abdominoplastic surgery. (medscape.com)
  • Damage control surgery (DCS) is a technique of surgery used to care for critically ill patients. (wikipedia.org)
  • mesh
  • On day 3-10 a polypropylene mesh is sutured to the fascial edges, between the two layers of the VAWC system, and tightened. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The VAWC dressing is changed and the mesh tightened every 2-3 days, resulting in gradual approximation of the fascial edges. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Procedure
  • Every physician-endoscopist undertaking laparoscopy should have a clear understanding of the benefits offered by the procedure and should be willing to recommend avoidance of the technique if there is no defineable gain for the patient. (barnardhealth.us)
  • wall
  • [ 9 ] Although aponeurotic suturing in the midline was noted to be able to reduce anterior projection of the abdominal wall, it did little to reduce the diameter of the waist. (medscape.com)
  • Pregnancy stretches the skin beyond its biomechanical capability to spring back and stretches the musculoaponeurotic structures of the abdominal wall. (medscape.com)
  • Massive weight loss, whether from dieting or after a gastric bypass surgery, also plays a role in excess skin and laxity of the abdominal wall. (medscape.com)
  • contamination
  • Cultures are useful from the wound in the multiply-operated patient and will reflect the source of contamination responsible for the infection. (nih.gov)
  • incidence
  • With this technique, the inframammary crease was altered and the origin of the pectoralis muscle was dissected blindly, accounting for a significantly higher incidence of implant malposition. (medscape.com)
