Anonymous Testing of Pathology Specimens for BRCA Mutations in Ashkenazi Jewish Individuals Who Have Cancer

Germline mutations in the genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 have been demonstrated in the majority of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer families. The increased risk to develop both breast and ovarian cancer associated with inheriting a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation has been well established. It has also been suggested that is ...

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 ...

Safety and Clinical Efficiency of the 21-day Fasting-like Diet in Patients With Metabolic and Autoimmune Diseases

Although fasting has been proved an effective approach to treat metabolic and autoimmune diseases in mice, prolonged fasting is difficult to implement in human-beings for the safety and feasibility reasons. In this clinical trial, we will recruit metabolic and autoimmune diseases and then follow a traditional Chinese 21-day fasting-like diet ...

Chile Biliary Longitudinal Study

Gallbladder cancer is a leading cause of cancer death among women in Chile, which has among the highest reported gallbladder cancer incidence and mortality rates in the world. Gallbladder cancer provides a particularly good model for understanding the role of inflammation in carcinogenesis since the major risk factor, gallstones, causes ...

Point of Care 3D Ultrasound for Various Applications: A Pilot Study

Summary Purpose and Objective: The purpose of this study is to test the feasibility of rapid acquisition of point of care 3D ultrasound in obtaining abdominal and/or pelvic images. The study will use a newly developed acquisition method and post-processing technique to create three dimensional image models of the abdomen ...

Laparoscopy-assisted ERCP in Patients With Altered Gastric Anatome

Patients would have had a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass in the past that had altered their gastric anatomy. Now they have developed bilary and/or pancreatic problems that require and ERCP. With their altered gastric anatomy a standard ERCP would not be possible. Thus they are scheduled for a Laparoscopy-assisted ERCP.

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

3D HD Versus 2D HD in Cholecystectomy

Conventional laparoscopy can be very challenging, especially with the requirement of converting the two-dimensional image of the operating field to a three-dimensional perception. This can potentially lead to a detrimental effect on the learning curve as well for the feasibility of the operation for the more inexperienced surgeon. In our ...

Comparing the Outcomes of Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy vs. Robotic Cholecystectomy

Laparoscopic approach is largely used for cholecystectomy surgery. Here, at UIC, however the investigators perform many surgeries of the gallbladder through robotic approach. However, the investigators do also perform this surgery using the laparoscopic approach at UIC. Laparoscopic and robotic surgery represent both minimally invasive approach and are associated with ...
