  Purpose

This study is written to evaluate our experience treating esophageal fistulas with occlusive self-expanding covered metal stents. The long-term outcomes of patients treated with this new type of stent are as yet unknown. The differences between these stents is also unknown, as well as the ease of removal, efficacy, and/or placement. The intent of this study is not to determine which stent is better, but to merely evaluate the use of both. With this in mind, there will be no randomization of stent use, nor will there be restrictions on which stent may be used in which setting. This will be left to the judgment of the clinical placing the stent.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety of esophageal stenting by conducting an Omnipaque swallow and by the success of leakage stops and fistula healing. [ Time Frame: 15 - 30 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    By results from all procedures as reported by the surgeon conducting the stenting in relationship to difficulty and/or complications, as well as patient tolerability. When the esophagus can be sealed and any contamination drained, the stents have successfully provided coverage to allow healing of the esophageal wall.

  • Efficacy of esophageal stenting by the success of leakage stops and fistula healing. [ Time Frame: 15 - 30 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    By results from all procedures as reported by the surgeon conducting the stenting in relationship to difficulty and/or complications, as well as patient tolerability. When the esophagus can be sealed and any contamination drained, the stents have successfully provided coverage to allow healing of the esophageal wall.

  • A 30 day duration of stent placement and the relation to the healing esophagus [ Time Frame: 30 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    By results from all procedures as reported by the surgeon conducting the stenting in relationship to difficulty and/or complications, as well as patient tolerability. Evaluation of the healing process of the esophagus within first 30 days with the capability of its removal procedure. When the esophagus can be sealed and any contamination drained, the stents have successfully provided coverage to allow healing of the esophageal wall.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • An institutional protocol for stent management [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Results will be considered for assessing and instituting an institutional protocol to become the standard of care for future patient situations.


Estimated Enrollment: 25
Study Start Date: May 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date: May 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:

    Stent placement and removal for esophageal and/or gastric leaks, perforations and/or fistulas.
  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Patients must have radiographic or endoscopic proof of an esophageal leak or fistula.
  2. Patients will be required to undergo imaging with CT scan, endoscopy, or fluoroscopy to investigate the leak. Once the location of the leak is identified, then patients must be taken for stenting and any adjunctive treatment within 12 hours of diagnosis or within 12 hours of arrival to The Methodist Hospital.
  3. Patients must sign informed consent indicating that they are aware of the investigational nature of this study in keeping with the policies of the hospital.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Patients who will not agree to return for routine follow-up and studies.
  2. Patients who will not tolerate an endobronchial ultrasound or endoscopic procedure (coagulopathy [INR>1.8, PTT>60, or platelet level <50], hemodynamically unstable [MAP<50 or SBP<80], or other medical illness precluding safe endoscopy).
  3. Patients who have a perforation too high to stent (such as the back of the pharynx, where a stent is not able to be placed), the only unfavorable anatomic location is this one listed above; we believe all other locations are amenable to stent placement.
  4. Resectable carcinoma, megaesophagus, severe stricture, or caustic ingestion.
