BACKGROUND Damage control surgery and temporary open abdomen (OA) have been adopted widely, in both trauma and non-trauma situations. Several techniques for temporary abdominal closure have been developed. The main objective of this study was to evaluate the fascial closure rate in patients after vacuum-assisted wound closure and mesh-mediated fascial(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the importance of intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) and abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS), based on the December 2004 consensus definition, on outcome after surgery for ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA). METHODS Twenty-seven patients underwent open surgery for rAAA after the introduction of intra-abdominal pressure(More)
BACKGROUND The aim was to investigate the association between colonic ischaemia and intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) after surgery for ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA). METHODS Sigmoid colon perfusion was monitored with an intramucosal pH (pHi) tonometer. Patients with a pHi of 7.1 or less were treated for suspected hypovolaemia with intravenous(More)
AIM The aim of this paper was to review the literature on the clinical importance of monitoring intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) after ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA) repair. METHOD The literature was searched for abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) or intra-abdominal pressure and aortic aneurysm. Original articles were studied. Personal(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated the day-to-day variability of transcutaneous oxygen tension (tcPO2) in patients with diabetes mellitus and peripheral arterial occlusive disease who were at risk for chronic foot ulceration. METHODS The tcPO2 was measured in the morning once daily for 3 consecutive days in 10 male patients with diabetes mellitus who were hospitalized.(More)
OBJECTIVES Open abdomen therapy may be necessary to prevent or treat abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS). The aim of the study was to analyse the primary delayed fascial closure (PDFC) rate and complications after open abdomen therapy with vacuum and mesh mediated fascial traction (VACM) after aortic repair and to compare outcomes between those treated(More)
