Esophageal Manometry and Impedance Study in Obese Patients Before and During Anesthesia
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of anesthesia on the esophageal body in obese patients before and during anesthesia.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Evaluation of Esophageal Pressures and Reflux in Obese Patients Before and During Anesthesia Using High-resolution Solid-state Manometry|
- Esophageal pressures after laparoscopic gastric by pass [ Time Frame: 2 years after surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||October 2012|
Obesity is an increasing heath problem in western countries and is associated with increased risks during anesthesia.
Using high-resolution solid-state manometry the investigators aim to study esophageal pressures and measure the incidence of regurgitation of gastric contents during anesthesia induction in obese patients. The investigators aim to include 16 obese patients, with BMI > 35, undergoing laparoscopic gastric by-pass.
