Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) Oncology Registry

Participating centers will need to describe its own mechanism for patient identification and eligibility screening. A data manager, identified by the Principal Investigator at each participating center, will screen all patients for eligibility. Appointment, diagnosis and treatment data will be reviewed using information such as clinic records, appointment lists, pathology ...

Phase N/A

Endoscopic Resection Multicenter Registry

Endoscopic resection can be an appropriate approach in early neoplasms, challenging adenomas or sub-epithelial lesions. Endoscopic resection can be considered as a less invasive approach than surgery. Moreover, endoscopic resection can be available to patients who are ineligible for surgery or who have refused more aggressive surgical intervention. The study ...

Phase N/A

Sonographic Assessment of Laryngeal Elevation

Dysphagia is a common problem in rehabilitation medicine. To accurately evaluate its disorder is crucial in managing this group patient. Videofluoroscopic examination of swallow (VFSS) is generally regarded as the “gold standard” in the assessment of oropharyngeal dysphagia, especially in the detection of laryngeal penetration or subglottic aspiration. However, its ...

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

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

Changes in Sensitivity Taste and Smell in Stroke Patients

Stroke is the second leading cause of death. At least 50% of stroke patients develop dysphagia, leading to aspiration pneumonia, which is the main cause of death in stroke [2]. It is assumed that normal sensitivity is vital for aspiration-free swallowing and for the triggering of the swallowing reflex. Ali ...

Phase N/A

Physiological Flow of Liquids Used in Dysphagia Management

This research study will measure swallowing function in individuals with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or Parkinson's disease. The aims of this study are to (1) identify parameters of swallowing physiology that are associated with impaired swallowing safety and efficiency, and (2) explore how liquid thickness influences swallowing function. Participation in this ...

Phase N/A

The Effect of Esophageal Doppler Guided Goal-directed Hemodynamic Therapy in Severe Trauma Patients

Goal directed fluid therapy becomes issue for enhanced recovery after surgery. In goal directed therapy, dynamic parameters, like stroke volume and cardiac output, is important. Esophageal Doppler is one of device which provides dymanic parameters. In severe trauma cases, the effect of goal directed therapy is not known yet. So ...

Phase N/A

Testing of a New Scale Measuring Medical Outcomes of Dysphagia (MOD) in Adult Patients With Swallowing Disorders

Swallowing disorders (dysphagia) are common in adult patients. There is emerging evidence that dysphagia itself can cause adverse medical outcomes. There is a three-fold increased risk for pneumonia in these patients versus similar patients without dysphagia. Patients with dysphagia also suffer poor nutrition and dehydration. Patients can become so malnourished ...

Phase N/A

The WATS3D (Wide Area Transepithelial Sample Biopsy With 3-Dimensional Computer-Assisted Analysis) U.S. Registry

The purpose of this study is to create a registry (collect data and keep it in a research database) to learn more about two methods of taking small tissue samples from your esophagus (the esophagus is the tube that carries food and liquid from your mouth to your stomach.). The ...
