Gastric Tissue Stapler Comparison Study

2019-09-17 02:47:37 | BioPortfolio


This study is conducted to compare performance characteristics of staple lines resecting the stomach in excised human gastric tissue with existing Echelon Flex Powered Plus GST System (Ethicon, size: 60mm, "Echelon") stapler and the Titan SGS (Standard Bariatrics, "Titan").

The Study is a single center clinical trial, randomized (1:1, Arm A - Ethicon Echelon 60 application, Arm B - Standard Bariatrics Titan SGS application) which utilizes the excised stomach tissue from up to 75 adults undergoing laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). This study will be conducted in the USA.

GERD Following Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (LSG) creates a vertical gastrectomy which results in a narrow and tubular shape of stomach. The line of resection starts at 3-6 cm. from pylorus (antrum) t...

Endoscopic Resection of Gastric Subepithelial Masses, EndoResect Study

Gastric subepithelial masses might harbour gastrointestinal stromal tumors, which should get resected because of their malignant potential. To minimize the associated surgical trauma endos...

Laparoscopic Management of Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor of Stomach

Gastric GISTs are rare neoplasms that require excision for cure. Although the feasibility of laparoscopic resection of gastric GIST less than 2cms has been established, the feasibility, sa...

S-1 for 9 Months Versus 1 Year for Gastric Cancer Staged II(SMAC)

The study aims to compare the efficacy and safety of S-1 for 9 months versus S-1 for 1 year as adjuvant chemotherapy after D2 resection in patients with gastric cancer. Hypothesis: For ga...

Endoscopic Full-thickness Resection of Gastric Subepithelial Tumors With the gFTRD

Subepithelial gastric tumors are rare and usually detected incidentally. Most subepithelial tumors (SET) are benign but up to 13% of all lesions can be malignant. Histology after needle bi...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Excision of the whole (total gastrectomy) or part (subtotal gastrectomy, partial gastrectomy, gastric resection) of the stomach. (Dorland, 28th ed)

Abnormal distention of the STOMACH due to accumulation of gastric contents that may reach 10 to 15 liters. Gastric dilatation may be the result of GASTRIC OUTLET OBSTRUCTION; ILEUS; GASTROPARESIS; or denervation.

Vagal denervation of that part of the STOMACH lined with acid-secreting mucosa (GASTRIC MUCOSA) containing the GASTRIC PARIETAL CELLS. Since the procedure leaves the vagal branches to the antrum and PYLORUS intact, it circumvents gastric drainage required with truncal vagotomy techniques.

Rounded or pyramidal cells of the GASTRIC GLANDS. They secrete HYDROCHLORIC ACID and produce gastric intrinsic factor, a glycoprotein that binds VITAMIN B12.

A synthetic methylprostaglandin E1 analog that reduces gastric acid secretion and enhances the gastric mucus-bicarbonate barrier. It is effective in the therapy of gastric ulcers and gives significant protection against NSAID-induced gastric mucosal damage. The drug also prevents cyclosporin A-induced damage to endocrine and exocrine pancreatic secretions. It shows a low order of acute toxicity and there is no evidence of embryotoxicity, fetotoxicity, teratogenicity, or mutagenicity in animal studies.
