2014-07-23 16:35:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Cervical anastomotic leak is one of the most common complications after trans-hiatal esophagectomy.

Hypothesis: An early post operative administration of a pro-kinetic dosage of erythromycin will reduce leak occurrence.

Inclusion Criteria:

- Patients after trans-hiatal esophagectomy

Exclusion Criteria:

- Allergy to erythromycin

- Use of phenothiazine

- QT prolongation

- Liver function test (LFT) abnormalities

- Myasthenia gravis

- Cardiomyopathy

Study Design

Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double-Blind

Conditions

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A macrolide antibiotic, produced by Streptomyces erythreus. It is the lauryl sulfate salt of the propionic ester of erythromycin. This erythromycin salt acts primarily as a bacteriostatic agent. In sensitive organisms, it inhibits protein synthesis by binding to 50S ribosomal subunits. This binding process inhibits peptidyl transferase activity and interferes with translocation of amino acids during translation and assembly of proteins.

The administration of medication or fluid through a needle directly into the bone marrow. The technique is especially useful in the management of pediatric emergencies when intravenous access to the systemic circulation is difficult.

The long-term (minutes to hours) administration of a fluid into the vein through venipuncture, either by letting the fluid flow by gravity or by pumping it.

A bacteriostatic antibiotic macrolide produced by Streptomyces erythreus. Erythromycin A is considered its major active component. In sensitive organisms, it inhibits protein synthesis by binding to 50S ribosomal subunits. This binding process inhibits peptidyl transferase activity and interferes with translocation of amino acids during translation and assembly of proteins.

Excision of part (partial) or all (total) of the esophagus. (Dorland, 28th ed)
