Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is a newly developed technique in the field of endoscopic treatment for GI neoplasms, because of its high rate of en bloc resection. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of ESD for GI neoplasms.

Condition Intervention
Digestive System Diseases Behavioral: endoscopic submucosal dissection

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Further study details as provided by Chinese PLA General Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The lesion result before ESD [ Time Frame: within 7 days before ESD ]
    Including the location, morphology and size under endoscopy and narrow banding image of lesion.

  • Short-term result after ESD [ Time Frame: whithin 7 days after ESD ]
    Including en bloc and curative resection rate, the specimen size, complications, lateral and vertical margin exposure of tumor, and lymphatic or vascular invasion.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The safety of ESD procedure [ Time Frame: 3months, 6months, 1year, 2years, 3years, 4years and 5years after ESD ]
    including the endoscopic examination at 3months, 6months, 1year, 2years, 3years, 4years and 5years after ESD

Estimated Enrollment: 500
Study Start Date: January 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: April 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection
Single-arm for ESD procedure and retrospective surgical procedure(Laparoscopy, Open surgery)data collection
Behavioral: endoscopic submucosal dissection
ESD was carried out by using a single-channel upper gastrointestinal endoscope with a water-jet system (Q260J; Olympus Optical Co, Tokyo, Japan) and a high-frequency generator with an automatically controlled system (ENDOCUT mode) (Erbotom ICC 200; ERBE Elektromedizin GmbH, Tübingen, Germany). The transparent attachment was fitted on the tip of the endoscope mainly to obtain a constant endoscopic view and to create tension on the connective tissue for the submucosal dissection.
Other Name: Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection(ESD)

Detailed Description:
Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) is widely accepted as a minimally invasive treatment for GI neoplasms.However, one disadvantage of EMR is that lesions larger than 2 cm in diameter must be removed in pieces, which may result in a high recurrence rate of residual tumor tissue. In addition, in most patients, pathological assessment cannot be conducted after the procedure. ESD can overcome the disadvantages of EMR. However, it is difficult to perform ESD for GI neoplasms because of the high rate of complications.
