The purpose of the General Surgery Training Outcomes Project: Evaluating the Impact of the Curriculum on General Surgery Resident Training and Evaluation is to analyze data collected as a normal course of the general surgery curriculum. The information collected is data readily available and routinely collected on all participants in the general surgery curriculum at NewYork Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia Campus. This information may lead to improvement in ... Read More

Patients who on taking clopidogrel are randomized to either continue clopidogrel into general surgery or discontinue clopidogrel 7 days before surgery. All patients resume clopidogrel after surgery. The investigators track the development of bleeding complications that may develop within 90 days of the surgery. Patients are medically cleared to be in either arm of the study by their cardiologist and surgeon. There is currently no evidence to support for or ... Read More

The investigators are conducting this study to find out if intravenous (injected through the vein) infusion of lidocaine and ketamine administered with general anesthesia is as effective as a paravertebral block in lessening pain after surgery and that both of these techniques are superior to general anesthesia alone in reducing pain immediately after surgery and in the long-term.

The purpose of this study is to determine if there is a difference in patient outcomes with general anesthesia versus spinal anesthesia when given in addition to popliteal and adductor canal nerve blocks for foot and ankle surgery. Popliteal and adductor canal nerve blocks are injections of local anesthetic agents near nerves in the back and front of the knee going to the foot and ankle that provide numbness during and after surgery. These peripheral nerve ... Read More

During non urgent surgery, general anesthesia might induce enterocyte damage. I-FABP is a performant biomarker of enterocyte damage. We aimed to study whether patient ongoing general anesthesia for non-urgent surgery have an elevation of plasma I-FABP concentration. Read More

Primary Objective: To determine whether the use of a paravertebral block in patients undergoing reconstructive surgery for breast cancer results in decreased immediate post-operative pain compared with patients having only general anesthesia. Secondary Objectives: 1. To determine whether the use of a paravertebral block in patients undergoing reconstructive surgery for breast cancer results in decreased post-operative pain in the ...

Bone loss may occur after bariatric (weight loss) surgery, but standard methods of measuring bone density in obese patients are potentially inaccurate. This study uses quantitative computed tomography to examine changes in bone mineral density after bariatric surgery. We are also studying mechanisms which may explain bone loss after bariatric surgery. Read More

Use of neuraxial agents in anesthesia for cardiac surgery is expanding. We have used combined general-spinal anesthesia for cardiac surgery for 12 years. We hypothesized that compared to general anesthesia, the combined techniques would provide comparable intraoperative hemodynamics and improved postoperative analgesia. This study subjected these techniques to a double-blind randomized trial. Read More

This study evaluates the incidence of cardiac arrhythmias during the perioperative period in patients undergoing open kidney cancer surgery in the lateral position. All the participants will be randomly allocated to receive general (Group G) or combined epidural/general anaesthesia (Group G/E). The anaesthetic technique is standardized. The Holter monitor will be applied at the evening before the surgery, tracing continuously for a period of 24 hours ... Read More

The purpose of this study is to investigate an intervention to prevent complications after pancreas surgery. The goal is to determine if placing a stent into the pancreatic duct before surgery will decrease or prevent leaking from the pancreatic duct after surgery. Leaks are common after pancreas surgery and can result in serious problems and post-operative pain. The study will compare two groups. One group will have the stent before surgery, and the other ...

The primary hypothesis is that disease-free survival is improved in patients undergoing resection for tumor thought to be stage I-III primary non-small cell lung cancer in patients with combined general-epidural anesthesia & analgesia as compared to patients receiving general anesthesia and postoperative patient-controlled opioid analgesia. Patients having surgery for resection of potentially curable lung cancer will be randomized to combined general and ... Read More

Laparoscopic technique and epidural anesthesia have been proposed to improve postoperative outcome following colorectal cancer surgery. The investigators hypothesize that the inflammatory response is attenuated by laparoscopic surgery and epidural anesthesia compared to traditional open surgery under general anesthesia. Read More
