Endoscopic Resection of Gastric Subepithelial Masses, EndoResect Study

2014-07-23 21:09:31 | BioPortfolio


Gastric subepithelial masses might harbour gastrointestinal stromal tumors, which should get resected because of their malignant potential. To minimize the associated surgical trauma endoscopic endoluminal resection is favorable. Therefore in the current study endoscopic resection of gastric subepithelial masses is investigated. Since there is a certain risk of perforation due to the procedure, perforations get closed by placement of endoscopic clips (over-the-scope-clip [OTSC] clips).


During an initial pilot phase 8 patients receive endoscopic resection under laparoscopic control. Thereafter and after positive initial results sole endoluminal endoscopy is done for a total of 38 patients.

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)

A method for removing lesions from gastrointestinal MUCOUS MEMBRANES. The mucosal tissue with the lesion is elevated by injecting a solution into the submucosal layer underneath it. The elevated tissue with the lesion is then cut out.

A mass spectrometry technique using two (MS/MS) or more mass analyzers. With two in tandem, the precursor ions are mass-selected by a first mass analyzer, and focused into a collision region where they are then fragmented into product ions which are then characterized by a second mass analyzer. A variety of techniques are used to separate the compounds, ionize them, and introduce them to the first mass analyzer. For example, for in GC-MS/MS, GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY-MASS SPECTROMETRY is involved in separating relatively small compounds by GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY prior to injecting them into an ionization chamber for the mass selection.

Fiberoptic endoscopy designed for duodenal observation and cannulation of VATER'S AMPULLA, in order to visualize the pancreatic and biliary duct system by retrograde injection of contrast media. Endoscopic (Vater) papillotomy (SPHINCTEROTOMY, ENDOSCOPIC) may be performed during this procedure.

An analytical method used in determining the identity of a chemical based on its mass using mass analyzers/mass spectrometers.
