EUS-guided Gastroenterostomy Versus Enteral Stenting for Palliation of Malignant Gastric Outlet Obstruction: A Randomized Clinical Trial

Summary: Gastric outlet obstruction (GOO) is a common complication of luminal malignancies which is associated with substantial morbidity. Palliation of GOO has traditionally been through the surgical bypass of the obstructed lumen by creating an opening between the stomach and small intestine. However, In recent years, a less invasive approach, i.e. endoscopic stenting, has gained wide acceptance to treat...

AspireAssist for Palliative Venting Gastrostomy in Malignant Bowel Obstruction Patients

Summary: Individuals with cancer causing an intestinal or stomach obstruction often require gastric drainage to prevent symptoms of nausea, vomiting, and to prevent aspiration. This is often achieved by a nasogastric (NG) tube, although prolonged NG tube use can lead to unwanted side effects like ulcers, bleeding, and they are generally uncomfortable. Gastric drainage through the use of a percutaneously pl...

Randomized Trial Comparing Endoscopic Ultrasound-guided Gastrojejunostomy and Surgical Gastrojejunostomy in Gastric Outlet Obstruction

Summary: Malignant gastric outlet obstruction (GOO) results from the mechanical obstruction of the duodenum or distal stomach from an underlying cancer. The consequences of GOO are abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, anorexia, inability to maintain an oral diet and weight loss, with associated poor quality of life and inability to continue with cancer therapy. The aim of this study is to compare the clinical...

Conventional Direct Laryngoscopy Vs. Video Laryngoscopy With The C-MAC For Pyloromyotomy

Summary: The purpose of this study is to compare two different ways of placing breathing tubes for surgery. Both ways are used currently to place breathing tubes and are safe and effective. This study seeks to determine if one way is better than the other for infants with pyloric stenosis.

Prospective Registry Of Therapeutic EndoscopiC ulTrasound

Summary: This registry aims to analyze long-term outcomes of therapeutic EUS (T-EUS) procedures, as well as to describe clinical and technical variables potentially predicting clinical success or adverse events, for a better selection of ideal candidates.

Safety and Efficacy of Endoscopic Ultrasound-Guided Gastroenterostomy for the Treatment of Malignant Gastric Outlet Obstruction

Summary: Malignant gastric outlet obstruction is a very disabling complication of patients with gastric, duodenal, ampullary, pancreatic, or bile duct cancer and worsens their prognosis. Current treatments have reported a similar complication rate and higher mortality in surgically treated patients. Recently, the creation of endoscopic ultrasound-guided gastroenterostomy (EUS) has shown promising results i...

EUS-guided Balloon-occluded Gastrojejunostomy Bypass (EPASS) Versus Uncovered Duodenal Stent for Unresectable Malignant Gastric Outlet Obstruction.

Summary: Surgical gastrojejunostomy is the conventional treatment for palliating patients suffering from of inoperable malignant gastric outlet obstruction (GOO). Although, the procedure is associated with a high success and low re-intervention rates, there is a risk of morbidities (10% - 16%) and mortalities (7%). The placement of a pyloro-duodenal self-expandable metallic stent (SEMS) is an alternative t...

Role of the Gastric Tube in the Preoperative Management of Hypertrophic Pyloric Stenosis

Summary: Pyloric stenosis is a current condition in pediatric surgery. The medical management prior to surgery consists of ionic correction. The nasogastric tube is commonly used to prevent gastric fluid inhalation before surgery, but there is no study on it benefits in this specific use. Other studies suggest that utilization of a gastric tube in pyloric stenosis may increase the duration of the medical t...

Endoscopic Surgery for Gastrointestinal Disorders: A Multicenter Registry Study

Summary: Currently, there is limited multi-center data on endoscopic surgery outcomes in western populations. Evaluation of these measurement would help the investigators compare them to conventional treatment modalities within current tertiary facilities; and consequently help the investigators identify appropriate treatment techniques and improve clinical management of patients at Rutgers RWJMS. The purp...
