Fistula clinical trials at UCSF

1 research study open to eligible people

A fistula is an abnormal connection between two body parts. UCSF is studying different ways to repair a specific type of fistula in the esophagus. We're comparing two common surgical methods in our trials.

  • Transanastomotic Tube for Proximal Esophageal Atresia With Distal Tracheoesophageal Fistula Repair

    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.
