Endoscopy Quality Study

2019-07-10 16:47:05 | BioPortfolio


This study seeks to establish factors that influence the view at endoscopy. To achieve this patients, who have been already booked for endoscopy, will complete a questionnaire prior to their procedure. Demographic and endoscopist factors will also be ascertained.

The view at endoscopy will then be reviewed and scored against a rating scale, which will be validated as a first phase of the study. Factors can then be sought that are associated with a good endoscopic view.

The Efficacy and Patient Tolerance of Ultrathin Nasal Endoscopy to Detect Barrett's Oesophagus

This study evaluates the diagnostic accuracy, safety and acceptability of transnasal endoscopy (TNE) for a diagnosis of Barrett's esophagus (BE). This is a cross-over randomised trial, whe...

Effect of Virtual Endoscopy Simulator Training on Real Patient Endoscopy

Trainees (Residents in internal medicine), naive to real patient endoscopy, will be randomized to receive either 3 weeks/2 hours per day of structured training for a total of 20 hours on ...

Evaluation of Efficiency of Esophageal Capsule Endoscopy in the Screening of Patients With Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease or Dyspepsia as Compared to Upper Endoscopy

The exploration of evocative symptoms of esophageal reflux disease or dyspepsia is based on a relatively invasive endoscopic examination, often badly tolerated, and which, in France, is ca...

Study of Capsule Endoscopy to Determine the Accuracy for Detection of Esophageal Varices

Esophageal capsule endoscopy is sedation-less alternative to upper endoscopy for evaluating esophageal lesions and potentially other UGI lesions. The purpose of this study was to determine...

Capsule Endoscopic Miss Rates Determined by Back-to-Back Capsule Endoscopy

The purpose of this study is to determine the missing rate of capsule endoscopy using back-to-back capsule endoscopy.

Performance measures for small-bowel endoscopy: a European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) Quality Improvement Initiative.

The European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) together with the United European Gastroenterology (UEG) recently developed a short list of performance measures for small-bowel endoscopy (i....

Detachable string magnetically controlled capsule endoscopy for complete viewing of the esophagus and stomach.

 Esophageal capsule endoscopy is reported to be insufficiently accurate to replace esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) because the passage of the capsule through the esophagus is passive and precludes ...

Virtual reality simulation training in endoscopy: a Cochrane review and meta-analysis.

 Endoscopy programs are increasingly integrating simulation training. We conducted a systematic review to determine whether virtual reality (VR) simulation training can supplement and/or replace con...

Guidelines for Standardizing Cleansing and Disinfection of Gastrointestinal Endoscopes.

As part of the activities toward standardizing endoscopy procedures, the Japan Gastroenterological Endoscopy Society has prepared guidelines for cleansing and disinfection of gastrointestinal endoscop...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Procedures of applying ENDOSCOPES for disease diagnosis and treatment. Endoscopy involves passing an optical instrument along either natural body pathways such as the digestive tract, or through keyhole incisions to examine the interior parts of the body. With advances in imaging, endoscope, and miniaturization of endosurgical equipment, surgery can be performed during endoscopy.

Visualization of the heart structure and cardiac blood flow for diagnostic evaluation or to guide cardiac procedures via techniques including ENDOSCOPY (cardiac endoscopy, sometimes refered to as cardioscopy), RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; TOMOGRAPHY; or ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
