Mayo Clinic Foregut Surgery Report Card Questionnaire

2016-03-16 04:08:24 | BioPortfolio


The Mayo Clinic Foregut Surgery Report Card Questionnaire has been created in order to have a consistent evaluation tool for patients undergoing foregut surgery in order to standardize and validate outcome measures.


Foregut surgery includes conditions of the esophagus, stomach and proximal small intestine. More specifically foregut surgery includes surgery for gastroesophageal reflux disease, hiatal hernias, and paraesophageal hernias. Patients undergoing foregut surgery report having varying degrees of symptoms of reflux, regurgitation, dysphagia, and pain following surgery. Providers also note varying degrees of outcomes. Some of these issues can be assessed using pH probe testing, upper GI endoscopy, high resolution manometry, CT scans, and other testing. There are various validated questionnaires that have been used to assess problem areas of reflux, dysphagia, and pain such as the Promis Global Health Score, Mayo GER Score, Modified Dysphagia Questionnaire-30 Day, Zubrod Score, and pain scale. Each of these symptoms, tests, and questionnaires contributes to the provider's understanding of the patient's outcomes but there is currently no assessment tool that brings all of the test findings and information reported by the patient as symptoms or answers to the questionnaires in a format that that is usable for the clinician and understandable for the patient who has specifically undergone foregut surgery. The Mayo Clinic Foregut Surgery Report Card Questionnaire has been created in order to have a consistent evaluation tool for patients undergoing surgery in the foregut in order to standardize and validate outcome measures. Data will be used to establish the validation of the Mayo Clinic Foregut Surgery Report Card Questionnaire. Data will also lead to the establishment of "normal" or expected scores for patients undergoing each type of foregut procedure.

A homotypic protein interaction module of the death domain superfamily. It is composed of a bundle of six alpha-helices that is related in sequence and structure to the DEATH DOMAIN and DEATH EFFECTOR DOMAIN. The Caspase Activation and Recruitment Domain (CARD domain) typically associates with other CARD-containing proteins, forming either dimers or trimers. CARD domains may occur in isolation, or in combination with other domains in CARD signaling adaptor proteins and initiator CASPASES that function in APOPTOSIS.

A family of intracellular signaling adaptor proteins that contain caspase activation and recruitment domains. Proteins that contain this domain play a role in APOPTOSIS-related signal transduction by associating with other CARD domain-containing members and in activating INITIATOR CASPASES that contain CARD domains within their N-terminal pro-domain region.

An approach, process, or methodology which emphasizes credible evidence and the best available scientific knowledge, judiciously integrated to achieve the best possible outcomes in structural design. For example, the design of a new OUTPATIENT CLINIC might incorporate a review of published research on outpatient clinic design, decisions on similar past projects, along with interviews with staff and consumers.
