3D High Resolution Anorectal Manometry in Children After Surgery for Anorectal Disorders

3D high resolution anorectal manometry (3DHRAM) is the most precise tool to assess function and 3D topographic picture of pressures along the anal canal. Until now, it has been used only in adult population to evaluate defecatory disorders. Congenital anorectal disorders are severe conditions and may present wide spectrum of ...

Phase N/A

POEM Trial: Multi-center Study Comparing Endoscopic Pneumodilation and Per Oral Endoscopic Myotomy (POEM)

The aim of the study is to compare the efficacy of per-oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) to the efficacy of pneumodilation as the initial treatment of symptomatic idiopathic achalasia. It is hypothesized that POEM has a higher long-term efficacy than pneumodilation in treatment of therapy-naive patients with idiopathic achalasia.

Phase N/A

Hirschsprung Disease Genetic Study

Hirschsprung disease (HSCR) is a birth defect resulting from the absence of nerve (ganglion) cells in the gastrointestinal tract. Hirschsprung disease has a population incidence of 1/5000 live births and most often occurs as an isolated condition. However, approximately 30% of HSCR cases are associated with other birth defects such ...

Peroral Endoscopic Myotomy (POEM) For The Treatment Of Achalasia: A Registry

Our institution performs therapeutic Interventional Endoscopy in around 700-1000 patients a year. We come across several patients with esophageal disorders, including esophageal cancer and Achalasia. Achalasia is an uncommon esophageal motility disorder caused by the inability of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) to relax due to the degeneration of inhibitory ...

Phase N/A

Prospective Study to Assess the Diagnostic Utility of Amyl Nitrite in Patients With Suspected Achalasia Undergoing High Resolution Esophageal Manometry (HREM)

A single center, prospective study at a tertiary-care referral center (JHH). All patients will be provided with informed consent to undergo HRM with provocation as part of routine care to evaluate dysphagia symptoms or evaluation of known achalasia. All procedures will be performed as part of routine care and therefore ...

Phase N/A

POEM for Spastic Esophageal Disorders

Standard surgical care for spastic esophageal disorders such as achalasia includes a procedure called Heller myotomy. The treatment in our study, called endoscopic myotomy (also known as peroral endoscopic myotomy - POEM) is different from standard surgery (Heller myotomy) because it is less invasive, is less likely to cause reflux, ...

Phase N/A

Achalasia Patient Reported Outcomes

This is a non-randomized, non-inferiority trial that has been created to compare results of achalasia procedures including but not limited to: POEM + Partial Fundoplication (PF), POEM and Laparoscopic Modified Heller Myotomy + PF and POEM + Peroral Plication of the esophagus. Using a set of consistent evaluation tools for ...

Phase N/A

Per Oral Endoscopic Myotomy (POEM) and Prolonged Dilatation (PRD) for Achalasia

Achalasia is an esophageal motility disorder, which leads to clinical symptoms such as dysphagia, regurgitation, chest pain and consecutive weight loss. Although conventional treatment such as laparoscopic Heller myotomy (LHM) and balloon dilatation (BD) can provide sufficient symptom relief in many patients, both interventions have their individual drawbacks. Additionally, treatment ...

Phase N/A

Esophageal Cancer Risk Registry

We will enroll patients with esophageal cancer, patients who are at risk for developing esophageal cancer, and patients who have a non-cancerous esophageal disorder. All patients will be asked to fill out a questionnaire about their general health and personal habits, and about their relatives' medical history; this will be ...

Phase N/A

Peroral Endoscopic Myotomy (POEM) for the Treatment of Achalasia

Information about the subject's medical history, leading up to the need for an Achalasia treatment, the procedure itself and how the subject does after the procedure, including after the subject gets home, will be collected. This will be done by gathering relevant information from the subject's medical chart and/or by ...
