TECR & ECM Placement for Esophageal High Grade Dysplasia

This is a single-center, prospective, single arm study involving 10 patients with an established diagnosis of Barrett's Esophagus (BE) with High Grade Dysplasia (HGD). Potential subjects will be prescreened to assess eligibility and must meet inclusion criteria. In order to make this initial qualification, pathology results of biopsies and EMR ...

Phase N/A

Prospective Interventional Study Evaluating the Feasibility and Safety of the Esophageal Cooling Device

Controlling patient's body temperature, and in particular, reducing body temperature in a treatment referred to as targeted temperature management, has been shown to improve outcomes for many conditions, including neonatal hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, cardiac arrest, and traumatic brain injury. However, available modalities for inducing targeted temperature management have a number ...

Phase N/A

Efficacy of Natural Ingredient to Improve the Swallowing Response of Patients With Oropharyngeal Dysphagia

The trial will be double-blind, randomized, monocentric, and interventional with a hybrid design. The subjects will be randomized to one of the three parallel active ingredient groups. Products will be compared versus control (Thicken Up Clear - nectar viscosity), which adds a part of cross over within the design. The ...

Phase N/A

Autologous Muscle Derived Cells for Gastro-Intestinal Repair (AMDC-GIR) for Tongue Dysphagia

This preliminary, prospective, dose escalating clinical study will evaluate the safety and potential efficacy of Autologous Muscle Derived Cells for Gastro-Intestinal Repair (AMDC-GIR) for the treatment of tongue dysphagia (TD) that develops following treatment for head and neck cancer. Surgery, chemo- and radiotherapy can induce significant TD resulting in long-term ...


Reducing Dysphagia Associated With Anterior Cervical Spine Surgery by Maintaining Low Endotracheal Tube Cuff Pressure

Post-operative dysphagia is a well-documented complication of anterior cervical spine surgery (ACSS) with an estimated risk of 30 - 50% that patients will experience some degree of post-operative swallowing dysfunction. While symptoms often subside within 6 months the impact of swallowing difficulties may be far reaching within the health-care system. ...

Phase N/A

Oral Screens in Post Stroke Training

Project plan Population: Patients are recruited from the hospital Stockholms Sjukhem. When discharged, or 6-7 months after stroke, the patients are informed about the study. All positive answers are registered in a coded list. Patients are contacted by the investigators around eight months after the stroke. Patients are included in ...

Phase N/A

The Effectiveness of Oral Health in Improving Dysphagia of Patients After Stroke of Swallowing Function and Oral Health Quality of Life

The prevalence of chewing dysphagia in the domestic rehabilitation department ward was about 53.61%.Nasal tube retention of about 31%, due to nasogastric tube feeding, often overlooked oral hygiene, easy to cause respiratory tract infection. At the same time, oral hygiene will also affect the effectiveness of swallowing treatment, is worthy ...

Phase N/A

Improving SWAllowing After Stroke With Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation

tDCS will be used in a double-blind, randomized control trial in acute stroke patients suffering from dysphagia. After informed consent and recruitment, patients will be randomly (computer method) allocated to real or sham tDCS, that will be applied during swallowing exercices/therapy or supervised feeding. Baseline and follow-up outcomes about dysphagia ...


Neurostimulation for Dysphagia in Parkinson's Disease

The aim of this study is to assess 3 novel neuromodulation approaches - namely, pharyngeal stimulation, high frequency (5Hz) repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation and low frequency (1Hz) repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation on swallowing function in patients with dysphagia after Parkinson's Disease. A total of 66 patients are planned to be ...

Phase N/A

Videofluoroscopic Swallowing Study (VFSS)

DDS signals and VFSS will be recorded simultaneously (for the same bolus) using barium contrast agent stimuli prepared in three consistencies: thin, mildly-thick and moderately-thick. Subjects will undergo VFSS with simultaneous DDS using up to 5 boluses of thin barium stimulus ("THIN-Ba"), and up to 4 boluses of barium thickened ...
