An Evaluation of the Utility of the ExSpiron Respiratory Variation Monitor During Upper GI Endoscopy

The purpose of this study is to assess the utility of the ExSpiron Respiratory Variation Monitor in patients undergoing an interventional procedure with anesthesia. The primary outcome measure will be the average minute ventilation of the patient during the procedure. This study will also examine the correlation between clinical interventions ...

Phase N/A

Duct-to-mucosa Versus Invagination for Pancreaticojejunostomy

The purpose of this study is to determine whether duct-to-mucosa is better than invagination in pancreaticojejunostomy after pancreaticoduodenectomy. This single-centre, open, randomized controlled trail is conducted following ISGPF criteria for pancreatic fistula (PF). The duration of the study is supposed to start from Jan 5th 2012 and last to Dec ...

Phase N/A

Interventional Endoscopy Database for Pancreatico-biliary Gastrointestinal and Esophageal Disorders

Our institution performs therapeutic ERCP (Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography ), Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) and Interventional Endoscopy in around 1000 patients a year. Procedures such as biliary and/or pancreatic sphincterotomy, stents placement (metallic or plastic) and removal for revision, cysts and pseudocysts drainage are conducted in patients suffering from pancreatico-biliary disorders, gastrointestinal ...

Phase N/A

Los Angeles Prospective GI Biliary and EUS Series

AIMS A) Characterize unusual disease and pathologic presentations which require endoscopic treatment in a large safety net hospital B) To study the impact of EUS and ERCP on the management of these patients. C) Analyze how EUS and ERCP results correlate with other radiographic methods including conventional ultrasound and computed ...

Phase N/A

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) for Palliation of Cholangiocarcinoma

Cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) is the second most common malignancy arising within the liver, and the association of this malignant condition with high morbidity and mortality is well recognized. It originates from the epithelium of bile ducts or ductules. Two types have been described: the peripheral type occurring in the parenchyma of ...

Phase

Biliary Cancer in Italy: a Study on Cholangiocarcinoma cAUSEs and Risk Factors

Patients will undergo basal blood sample exams regarding blood cell count, renal and liver function, tumor markers, inflammatory and metabolic state, along with a screening (and, if needed, a more in-depth laboratory analysis) for viral hepatitis infections. Information will be collected about radiological, clinical and pathological features of the neoplasm ...

Phase N/A

Study of GEMOX(Gemcitabine/Oxaliplatin) Versus XELOX(Xeloda/Oxaliplatin) in Advanced Biliary Tract Carcinoma

In patients with advanced BTC(biliary tract cancer), either gemcitabine-based, 5-FU-based chemotherapy or clinical trial is recommended as first-line treatment. According to ABC-02 trial, as compared with gemcitabine alone, cisplatin plus gemcitabine was associated with a significant survival advantage without the addition of substantial toxicity. Cisplatin plus gemcitabine is an appropriate ...

Phase

Early Oral Versus Enteral Nutrition After Pancreatoduodenectomy

Background & aim: Pancreatoduodenectomy carries high morbidity rates even in high-volume centers. Postoperative complications often preclude or delay adequate oral nutrition and nutritional support may be required. However, the role of perioperative nutritional supplementation in well-nourished patients remains controversial. There are not any standard protocols for nutritional support after major ...

Phase

A Study of Different Dosing Schedules of Selumetinib With Cisplatin/Gemcitabine (CIS/GEM) Versus CIS/GEM Alone in Biliary Cancer

This is a phase II study (the second stage of testing a new drug or new drug combinations) to see how useful two different schedules of study drug selumetinib with cisplatin and gemcitabine are compared to cisplatin and gemticabine alone in patients with biliary cancer. Selumetinib, an oral drug which ...

Phase

Extracellular RNA Markers of Liver Disease and Cancer

The goal is to identify an extracellular RNA candidate for the detection and diagnosis of liver cancers such as hepatocellular cancer or biliary cancer, and chronic liver diseases. The use of selected exRNA biomarkers for diagnosis of hepatocellular cancer (HCC) or biliary tract cancers in patients with cirrhosis will be ...
