  • A Study to Compare Safety and Effectiveness of Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication versus Laparoscopic Partial Fundoplication to Treat Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease Patients with Hiatal Hernia Rochester, MN

    The purpose of this study is to compare treatment effectiveness and safety between Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication (TIF) and Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication (LNF) in GERD patients with hiatal hernia undergoing hernia repair.

  • A Study to Evaluate Pathologic Diagnosis of Endometriosis Compared to Gross Visualization Scottsdale/Phoenix, AZ

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the diagnosis of endometriosis by gross visualization and compare to histologic evaluation during laparoscopic resection. By better understanding the polymorphic appearance of endometriosis, it will improve our diagnostic potential without having to rely on pathology. With this knowledge, it will improve patient centered care and possibly expedite treatment.

  • Abdominal Ice Packs for Pain Control and Reduction of Narcotic Use Following Laparoscopic Hysterectomy Rochester, MN

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of using ice packs on the abdomen immediately after laparoscopic hysterectomy surgery on pain control and narcotic pain medication use.

  • A Study to Analyze the Microbiome and Immunology of the Lower and Upper Female Reproductive Tract in Women with Endometriosis Rochester, MN

    The purpose of this study is to map the female reproductive tract microbiome in patients with and without endometriosis to seek correlations of the microbiome to endometriosis, to determine if lower reproductive tract microbiome is predictive of upper reproductive tract changes by comparing composition of the microbiome in the lower and upper reproductive tracts, to explore immunologic differences in patients with and without endometriosis, compare presence of immunologic factors and cells between ectopic and eutopic endometrium, and to compare systemic immune system characteristics in patients with and without endometriosis using mass cytometry of peripheral blood samples.

  • Return to Baseline Functional Status in Elderly Women Undergoing Pelvic Organ Prolapse Surgery No Locations

    Our primary aim is to determine the rate of return to baseline functional status 3 months post-operative pelvic organ prolapse surgery in women 65 years or older.  Our secondary aim is to identify preoperative factors that predict failure of return to baseline functional status.

  • EPAD Monitoring of Patients Undergoing Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Genitourinary Surgery Jacksonville, FL

    Participants to be enrolled in this study will have been scheduled to have laparoscopic genitourinary surgery and EPAD monitoring as part of their clinical care intraoperatively. Patients scheduled for genitourinary surgery are often at risk for developing nerve injuries due to intraoperative positioning. Somatosensory evoked potential devices (SSEP) are commonly used to detect pending injury to peripheral nerves. The purpose of the present study is to use SSEP monitoring to determine the incidence and potential causes of significant changes in SSEP waveforms and correlate these changes with neurologic status of the brachial plexus after robotic surgery.

  • A Study to Evaluate Wound Infiltration with Liposomal Bupivacaine in Laparotomy for Gynecological Malignancy Rochester, MN

    The purpose of this study is to determine whether or not there is a benefit to adding opioid injection around the spinal cord ( intrathecal) to incisional long-acting local anesthetic (liposomal bupivacaine) injection for pain management after abdominal surgery for gynecological cancer.

  • Perioperative Ketamine for Pain With Gastric Bypass Scottsdale/Phoenix, AZ

    Opioid medications such as morphine, hydrocodone and oxycodone are standard for treating pain after surgery, however there are disadvantages. Because of the way opioids work, gastric bypass patients may have an increased risk of having sedation or problems with breathing. In patients with sleep apnea, opioids may increase the risk of severe apnea. Ketamine is an alternative pain medicine that can be used to treat pain after surgery and may have fewer effects on breathing. Using ketamine as part of the regimen may be a better choice for laparoscopic gastric bypass patients. This study is being done to find out ...
