Less pain and faster recoveryFollowing laparoscopic interventions as an hysterectomy, the postoperative pain decreases from 6/10 to 1.5/10. Shoulder pain is absent, while recovery is faster with a faster mobilization and shorter time to first flatus.
Less Postoperative adhesionsFull-conditioning, reduces the trauma of the entire cavity and is the single most effective prevention of postoperative adhesions with an efficacy over 85%. If used together with a barrier (efficacy 40% when used alone) the efficacy becomes unprecedented reaching nearly 100%.
Less CO2 resorption.During surgery the CO2 resorption is much less thus decreasing need of hyperventilation to reduce metabolic acidosis while permitting surgery of longer duration. This can be very important in more obese patients in steep Trendelenburg.
Better FertilitySince adhesions are the cause of infertility in 30%, the unprecedented efficacy of full conditioning will be revolutionary in preserving fertility.
Preservation of oocyte reserveConditioning prevents, the progressively increasing CO2 resorption which signals deeper CO2 penetration with acidosis, hypoxia and ovarian reserve damage.
Less Postoperative fatigueThe persisting feeling of malaise and tiredness after abdominal surgery for up to 3 months is known as post-surgical fatigue. Since this is caused by peritoneal damage, it will be prevented by conditioning.
Less cancer metastasisThe implantation of malignant cells is facilitated and enhanced when the mesothelial cells retract with exposure of the underlying extracellular matrix.
less bowel complicationsThe prevention of deeper tissue acidosis and hypoxia will keep the bowel more viable and prevent perforations or leaks after bowel surgery.
Similar benefits in open surgeryFull-conditioning is even more effective in open abdominal surgery.
And in hearth, thoracic and spine surgeryAdhesions indeed can cause postoperative problems.
These benefits were demonstrated experimentally and/or can be logically expected.
