Detection of early esophageal cancer in surrounding normal tissue can be challenging even for experienced examiners. The early detection is essential to determine the following treatment. Early stages of esophageal cancers can be treated by endoscopic resection whereas advanced neoplasias might lead to an Operation of the esophagus. Diagnosis is made usually by biopsies of suspicious lesions or untargeted quadrant biopsies. The electrical properties in inflammatory tissue and cancer can be sensed by electrical bioimpedance technique.
The aim of this study is to compare the impedance probe with the histological result and to investigate the feasibility of the new technique in detection of esophageal cancer.
Detection of early esophageal cancer in surrounding normal tissue can be challenging even for experienced examiners. The early detection is essential to determine the following treatment. Early stages of esophageal cancers can be treated by endoscopic resection (ER) whereas advanced neoplasias might lead to esophagectomy. Diagnosis is made usually by biopsies of suspicious lesions or untargeted quadrant biopsies. The electrical properties in inflammatory tissue and dysplasia can be sensed by electrical bioimpedance technique. The aim of this study is to compare the impedance probe with the histological result and to investigate the feasibility of the new technique in detection of esophageal cancer.

This is a multi-center study whose aim is to define the epidemiology and genetics of Barrett's esophagus and adenocarcinoma. The researchers have studied families affected with Barrett's e...
The purpose of this study is to determine, by means of DNA and protein analysis, the relationship between DNA and protein profiles and a number of endpoints which are important for the pat...
Chemoprevention is the use of certain drugs to keep cancer from forming, growing, or coming back. The use of Polyphenon E (green tea extract) may prevent esophageal cancer. The goal of th...
To prospectively assess the functional aspects of the the esophageal squamous epithelial barrier and correlate this with tissue inflammation and intercellular space dilation in patients wh...
The hypothesis of this study is that the use of IMRT instead of conventional 4-field irradiation in patients with locally-advanced esophagus cancer receiving adjuvant RT is a feasible trea...
The region of the esophagus 15-17 cm below the incisors, called the sub-upper esophageal sphincter (sub-UES), has not been characterized in adults with eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) but appears diffe...
Horizontal pressure bands on high-resolution esophageal manometry with impedance (HREMI) tracings are often seen and thought to be due to cardiovascular structures compressing the esophagus. The aim o...
Barrett's esophagus is the premalignant condition for esophageal cancer and the diagnosis of esophageal adenocarcinoma on index endoscopy is increasing. Many advanced endoscopic techniques are availab...
The purpose of this best practice advice article is to describe, in patients with Barrett's esophagus (BE) with dysplasia/early cancer, the role of Barrett's endoscopic therapy (BET) and appropriate f...
There is a strong evidence that Helicobacter pylori infection is inversely associated with Barrett's esophagus. In a high-prevalence region of H. pylori, low rates of esophageal cancer and its precurs...
Objective tests of middle ear function based on the difficulty (impedance) or ease (admittance) of sound flow through the middle ear. These include static impedance and dynamic impedance (i.e., tympanometry and impedance tests in conjunction with intra-aural muscle reflex elicitation). This term is used also for various components of impedance and admittance (e.g., compliance, conductance, reactance, resistance, susceptance).
A type of impedance plethysmography in which bioelectrical impedance is measured between electrodes positioned around the neck and around the lower thorax. It is used principally to calculate stroke volume and cardiac volume, but it is also related to myocardial contractility, thoracic fluid content, and circulation to the extremities.
Recording changes in electrical impedance between electrodes placed on opposite sides of a part of the body, as a measure of volume changes in the path of the current. (Stedman, 25th ed)
Tumors or cancer of the ESOPHAGUS.
A motility disorder of the ESOPHAGUS in which the LOWER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER (near the CARDIA) fails to relax resulting in functional obstruction of the esophagus, and DYSPHAGIA. Achalasia is characterized by a grossly contorted and dilated esophagus (megaesophagus).
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
Barrett’s esophagus is a condition in which the tissue lining the esophagus—the muscular tube that carries food and liquids from the mouth to the stomach—is replaced by tissue that is similar to the intestinal lining. This process is ca...
