Achalasia and Dysplasia

Patient with achalasia have a 10-50 fold increased risk to develop esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). Early diagnosis of ESCC is essential, and detection of an earlier dysplastic stage is preferred. Endoscopic detection is however difficult and often delayed. Chromoendoscopy with Lugol dye increases detection rates dysplasia and ESCC to ...

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

Different Surgical Procedures of Peroral Endoscopic Myotomy(POEM) for Esophageal Achalasia

Esophageal achalasia is an esophageal motor disorder, which is characterized by the absence of esophageal peristalsis combined with a defective relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). The major symptoms of esophageal achalasia are dysphagia, chest pain, and regurgitation of undigested food. Currently, treatment options mainly focus on relief of ...

Phase N/A

Enhanced Recovery After Surgery In Hirschsprung Disease

Optimized peri-operative care within an enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocol is designed to reduce morbidity after surgery, resulting in a shorter hospital stay. The present study evaluated this approach in the context of radical surgery for pediatric patients with Hirschsprung's Disease(HD). Patients undergoing radical surgery for HD will be ...

Phase N/A

Endoscopic Myotomy of the Lower Esophageal Sphincter for Achalasia

By the endoscopic creation of an esophageal submucosal tunnel the inner circular muscle layer can be easily visualized. In contrast to conventional Heller myotomy, the dissection of only the inner circular esophageal muscle layer leaves the outer longitudinal muscle layer intact. Thereby, post-interventional reflux disease should be avoided.

Phase N/A

To Assess the Feasibility of Same Day Discharge Following a POEM Procedure

This is a study of an investigational surgical procedure for the treatment of achalasia the inability of smooth muscle to move food down the esophagus. Standard care for participants includes Heller Myotomy, a laparoscopic procedure that includes cutting the muscle layers in the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) the valve at ...

Phase N/A

Genetic Mosaicism in Hirschsprung's Disease

Hirschsprung's disease is a complex genetic disorder. The etiology of this disease is not completely understood. It is characterized by the absence of ganglia (nerve cells) in de distal colon. This impairs bowel relaxation which can lead to bowel disfunction, toxic megacolon, ileus and enterocolitis. So far, several genes have ...

Phase N/A

POEM- Peroral Endoscopic Myotomy for Esophageal Motility Disorders

POEM has recently described as an alternative treatment for achalasia in humans. In this procedure the esophageal sphincter is incised through a submucosal tunnel in the esophagus. In this study we aim to perform POEM on achalasia patients.

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

Anterior Orientation vs Posterior Orientation in Per Oral Endoscopic Myotomy POEM for the Treatment of Achalasia

Achalasia is one of the most studied esophageal motility disorders. The etiology of Achalasia is autoimmune, neurodegenerative, or viral immune. Achalasia is a consequence of the degeneration of ganglion cells in the myenteric plexus of the esophageal body and the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). The end result of the inflammatory ...
