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

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 ...

Endoscopic Mucosal Resection for the Diagnosis of a-Ganglionosis a Controlled Prospective Trial (EDGE Trial)

Background: Adult and pediatric patients presenting with chronic constipation and/or motility disorders may be referred for rectal biopsy to rule out aganglionosis or Hirschsprung's disease. The traditional diagnostic test, rectal suction biopsy, is a blind technique and is insensitive in confirming the diagnosis. Frequently, patients require subsequent referral for a ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Mirabegron in Achalasia: A Clinical and Manometric Proof of Concept Pilot Study

Achalasia is characterized by incomplete or absent relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) and loss of esophageal peristalsis which leads to dysphagia. Standard of care for achalasia includes endoscopic management (dilation and injection of injection of botulinum toxin) and surgery, however both of these options carry procedural risks, may ...

Neuropsychological Development and Functional Outcome Sin Children With Hirschsprung Disease at School Age

Hirschsprung's disease (HD) is a rare congenital disease (1:5000) characterized by neonatal functional low bowel obstruction that is caused by aganglionosis of the distal bowel. HD treatment consists in surgery of colonic reduction in the early childhood, requiring afterward a long-term follow-up. In the long term complications (incontinence, constipation, enterocolitis, ...
