MGB/OAGB and LSG Effects on Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES) Function

Background While several articles have reported about the effects of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) on the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), to date, just one paper has discussed this issue with regard the Mini/One anastomosis gastric bypass (MGB/OAGB). This is expected to be the first randomized trial exploring and comparing these ...

Phase N/A

Fexofenadine Use in Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

Around 18-28% of North American adults have gastroesophageal reflux symptoms once per week. Of those patients up to 60% may have an inadequate response to proton pump inhibitors and have persistent symptoms. One possible explanation is that this group of patients has nerve related pain. It is thought that H1 ...

An Investigation of the EndoStim Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES) Stimulation System for the Treatment of Reflux

The purpose of this investigation is to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of the EndoStim Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES) Stimulation System in the treatment of subjects with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). This investigation is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled clinical investigation. After the implant procedure, subjects will be randomized to ...

Phase N/A

EndoStim Patient Registry

To provide a research tool enabling physicians to monitor long term clinical outcomes for patients undergoing gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) treatment with EndoStim LES Stimulation System.

Phase N/A

Post Prandial High Resolution Impedance- Manometry

Nine to 30% of the population suffers from gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) - suggestive symptoms (heartburn, regurgitation, chest pain, chronic couch, sore throat). Proton pump inhibitor (PPI) is usually the first line treatment. However 20 to 60% of patients have persistent symptoms on proton pump inhibitor. Complementary examinations are then ...

Phase N/A

Radiofrequency Energy Delivery for Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a chronic disease characterized by symptoms of heartburn and acid regurgitation. Uncontrolled GERD can significantly impact quality of life. The use of proton pump inhibitors (PPI) remains the mainstay therapy. However, the efficacy of this intervention is often hampered by adherence, costs, and the risks ...

Diagnostic Value of Linked Color Imaging for Minimal Change Esophagitis in Nonerosive Reflux Esophagitis and GERD

This is a prospective study comparing the use of linked color imaging(LCI) versus standard white light for the detection of minimal change esophageal.Gastroesophageal reflux disease(GERD) is a common disease that be defined as a condition which develops when the reflux of stomach contents cause troublesome symptoms and/or complications.At present,more than ...

Phase N/A

Progression of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease and Barrett's Esophagus and the Creation of a Barrett's Registry

Symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux are common. It affects at least 40% of the adult American population and 40 million American adults experience reflux symptoms on a regular basis. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) typically affects Caucasians and older males. It is a significant risk factor for development of Barrett's esophagus (BE) ...

Phase N/A

Determining Risk Factors for Successful PPI Weaning

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease ("GERD") can happen when stomach acid flows backward into your esophagus (tube from the mouth to the stomach), causing symptoms such as heartburn. Proton pump inhibitors (called "PPIs") are a type of medication that reduce acid in the stomach and are used to reduce the discomfort from ...
