MRI to Assess the Effect of Non-selective Beta-blocker in Patients With Cirrhosis

Background Standardization and new therapeutic treatments of variceal bleeding has significantly reduced the mortality the last 25 years, but there is still a high 6-week mortality around 15-20% and 1-year mortality of about 40%. Cirrhotic patients without prophylactic treatment suffer a risk of 60% of re-bleeding within the first year ...

Phase N/A

The Effect of Beta-blockers in Substance P Levels and the Swallowing Function

A non-randomised, prospective study to assess the effects of beta-blockers on substance P levels and the swallowing function. The study is going to be carry out in the Gastrointestinal Physiology Laboratory of the Hospital de Matar (Spain). All participants will be actively recruited from a Linked hospital and primary care ...

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 ...

Phase N/A

Frailty in Thoracic Surgery

The purpose of this study is to develop an all-encompassing frailty model using laboratory and functional studies. A frailty model will help us determine prior to surgery who will require rehabilitation and skilled nursing needs beyond discharge. This model will also help us determine who will likely be readmitted and ...

Phase N/A

Functional Outcome After Treatment for Oropharyngeal Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Patients are enrolled prospectively at the department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery & Audiology at Copenhagen University Hospital, Rigshospitalet. All eligible patients with histologically verified squamous cell carcinoma of the oropharynx, regardless of treatment option (as long as the intent is curative) can be included. Outcome measures are assessed ...

Phase N/A

Development of Novel Biophysically Designed Fluids for Swallowing Disorders

Background Dysphagia, a devastating swallowing disorder affecting more than 18M adults and millions more children in the U.S. [1,2], is associated with increased mortality and morbidity, including malnutrition, dehydration, pulmonary complications, and reduced quality of life [3,4]. Dysphagia often causes thin liquids (e.g., water, coffee) to be aspirated or misdirected ...

Phase N/A

Description and Modeling of Swallowing Disorders After a Stroke

The oropharyngeal junction participates in 3 interpenetrating functions: Swallowing, Breathing and Speech. In the context of ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke, these are altered, isolated or associated manner, causing major disorders and representing a source of handicap for patients. Understanding the swallowing mechanisms is therefore a major challenge to guide the ...

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

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

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 ...
