Endoscopic Placement of Metal Stents in Treating Patients With Cancer- Related Duodenal Obstruction

2014-08-27 03:58:07 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: The use of endoscopy to place metal stents in the duodenum is less invasive than surgery for treating cancer-related duodenal obstruction and may have fewer side effects and improve recovery.

PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of endoscopic placement of metal stents in treating patients who have cancer-related obstruction of the duodenum.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

- Determine the objective response and clinical outcome in patients with duodenal obstruction secondary to malignancy treated with enteral Wallstents.

- Evaluate the efficacy and safety of this treatment in these patients.

- Evaluate the quality of life of these patients after enteral Wallstent placement.

OUTLINE: Patients undergo enteral Wallstent placement through an endoscope under fluoroscopic guidance into the duodenum.

Quality of life is assessed at 48 hours and 6 months after procedure.

Patients are followed at 48 hours, 30 days, 6 months, and then yearly thereafter until death.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 20 patients will be accrued for this study.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.

Tumor suppressor genes located in the 5q21 region on the long arm of human chromosome 5. The mutation of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (MCC stands for mutated in colorectal cancer).

A measure of the quality of health care by assessment of unsuccessful results of management and procedures used in combating disease, in individual cases or series.

The application of industrial management practice to systematically maintain and improve organization-wide performance. Effectiveness and success are determined and assessed by quantitative quality measures.

Tumor suppressor genes located in the 18q21-qter region of human chromosome 18. The absence of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (DCC stands for deleted in colorectal cancer). The products of these genes show significant homology to neural cell adhesion molecules and other related cell surface glycoproteins.
