In colorectal surgery, the use of prophylactic antibiotics is recommended. The standard use of antibiotics for colorectal surgery is three doses. It has been reported that the surgical site infection rates of laparoscopic colorectal surgery are lower than open colorectal surgery. However, the evidence of proper application of antibiotic for laparoscopic colorectal surgery is still not enough. The investigators are researching the efficacy and safety of one ... Read More

Hypothesis: The total costs of laparoscopic colorectal surgery are less than those of open surgery. Secondary hypothesis: Patients quality of life is higher following laparoscopic surgery, as compared to open colorectal surgery. Research objectives: 1. To estimate the cost implications and clinical benefits of incorporating laparoscopic colorectal surgery into routine clinical practice. 2. To examine whether the increased operative ... Read More

Anastomotic leak is a devastating complication of colorectal surgery. There is no widespread means of assessing the viability of a laparoscopic anastomosis. The investigators described recently the feasibility of microvascularisation assessment with near-infra red technology (NIR). The aim of this study is to look at the implementation of this technique in a wider prospective series of patients undergoing colorectal resection. Read More

The purpose of this study is to produce a user-friendly tool- in the form of a questionnaire - to accurately assess early quality of life in patients after abdominal colorectal surgery from the first day after surgery to 6 months after. The study will also compare this questionnaire to the other currently available assessment tools. Patients are invited to participate if they are undergoing abdominal colorectal surgery at University Hospitals of Cleveland. ... Read More

The Enhanced Recovery After Surgery system for perioperative care of patients undergoing major abdominal surgery, particularly colorectal surgery, was formed in Europe by a surgeon named Henrik Kehlet in 1994. Dr. Kehlet observed that his patients undergoing colorectal surgery were hospitalized postoperatively for extended periods of time due to prolonged return of the normal intestinal physiology and of other bodily functions. He formulated a system of ... Read More

Mechanical bowel preparation (MBP) is common practice in elective colorectal surgery. In recent literature the value of MBP is subject of discussion. We conducted a multicenter, randomized study with the goal of comparing outcome of elective colorectal resections and primary anastomoses with and without mechanical bowel preparation in terms of anastomotic leakage and other septic complications. Within the setting of a multicenter randomized trial,1433 ... Read More

Background: Our previous study demonstrated that electroacupuncture at Zusanli, Sanyinjiao, Hegu, and Zhigou reduces the duration of postoperative ileus and hospital stay after laparoscopic colorectal surgery within a traditional perioperative care setting. Recent evidence also suggested that a 'fast-track' perioperative program may help accelerate recovery after colorectal surgery. As electroacupuncture is simpler to implement and less labor intensive, it ... Read More

Background: - Some types of inflammation may increase the risk of cancers in the intestinal track. Because of this possibility, anti-inflammatory drugs may be able to prevent tumor growth and spread. One such drug, sulindac, may be helpful to study. Researchers want to see if people who are having surgery to remove intestinal tumors from advanced colorectal cancer will benefit from sulindac. It will be tested against a placebo. Objectives: - ... Read More

- Compared with traditional open colectomy, laparoscopic surgery is associated with less pain, earlier recovery, and better cosmetic outcome, and its short- and long-term oncologic outcomes have been demonstrated. - In experienced surgeons' hands, single incision laparoscopic surgery is increasingly performed for colorectal disease, and even for malignant lesion because of its reduced incision-associated morbidity and scarring. ...
