Research Focus

Select Research Focus to view the description.

Area: Effects of experimental biological procedures

This area of concentration aims to group lines of research that seek to detect changes in the physiology of organs and consequent tissue disruption, as well as the causes, risk factors and ways to prevent unexpected occurrences that influence morbidity and  on the survival determined by different operative surgical procedures.

Focus:  Postoperative functional and histopathological changes.

The operative surgical procedures determine changes in the physiology of the organs and consequent tissue disruption. This objective line aims to detect the consequent dysfunction and to correlate with the structural alterations in the sense of minimizing their effects. 

Focus:  Operative surgical strategies and graft and receptor survival in organ transplantation.

To identify risk factors that influence graft and recipient survival in organ transplantation. Variations in the operative technique of the grafts and the clinical results obtained in terms of the survival of the recipient will be studied. 

Focus:  Prevention of perioperative adverse effects.

It investigates the causes and methods to prevent unexpected occurrences in the early, intra and late operative procedures. The recognition of the risk factors involved may allow minimization and prevention. 

Focus:  Morpho-functional repercussion and tissue healing after surgical application of prostheses.

To study the effects of different prostheses in the tissues, applied by conventional and laparoscopic access routes, focusing the local inflammatory reaction, its incorporation and side effects, in the correction of the abdominal hernias. 

Area: Diagnostic and Therapeutic Innovations

This objective area of concentration aims to group lines of research that seek to study the incorporation of new technologies that allows to investigate clinical and surgical parameters, functional, molecular and genetic alterations that have important meaning in the diagnosis, therapeutics and prognosis of the diseases and to evaluate the results of the Use of minimally invasive techniques and anesthetic and analgesic techniques in the surgical area contributing to the reduction of patients' morbidity and mortality.

Focus:  Evaluation of the efficacy of minimally invasive surgical techniques.

The trend in modern surgical therapy is to minimize the effects of interventions using technological innovations. The objective is to evaluate the results of the use of these techniques. 

Focus:  Alternative analgesic and anesthetic techniques.

Studies of the incorporation of new technologies into therapeutics enabled to particularize the use of minimally invasive techniques and anesthetic and analgesic techniques in the surgical area, contributing to the reduction of patients' morbidity and mortality. 

Focus:  Tissue expression of biomarkers and diagnostic and prognostic correlations.

It is investigated the expression of tissue proteins corresponding to gene alterations and that have important significance in the diagnosis and prognosis of inflammatory and neoplastic diseases. 

Focus:  Pathophysiology and diagnosis of dysmotility of the digestive tract.

Correlation of clinical and surgical parameters with alterations of the digestive tract motility in normal individuals and patients with affections and functional.
