Esophageal Atresia clinical trials at UCSF
1 research study open to eligible people
Esophageal Atresia is a condition in which the food pipe is not properly connected. UCSF is running a clinical trial comparing two surgical methods for fixing this condition. The trial will test the effectiveness of using a tube to connect the food pipe during surgery compared to other common surgical methods. Join the study at UCSF.
open to eligible people ages up to 6 months
This trial will compare the effectiveness of two common surgical practices for Type C esophageal atresia repair: esophageal atresia (EA) with distal tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF). Infants with EA/TEF requiring surgical intervention will be recruited. Subjects will be randomized to either repair with or without transanstomotic tube (TT) during esophageal anastomosis creation. Primary outcome is symptomatic anastomotic stricture development requiring dilation within 12 months.
