Transgastrostomal Endoscopies

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT04309825

Brief Summary:
Upper GI endoscopies are commonly done by inserting the endoscope through the patient's mouth. When a patient has a gastrostomy feeding tube, the endoscope can be inserted through the stomach port opening. The aim is to prove this modification would lead to various health benefits, including need for lighter anesthesia, rapid recovery time and fewer anesthesia related adverse reactions.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: G-tube endoscopies patients
patients who will undergo an endoscopy through g-tube port
Procedure: transgastrostomal endoscopy
Placement the endoscope through the g-tube port and not through the mouth of a patient undergoing an upper gi endoscopy

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Obtain adequate biopsies [ Time Frame: 15 minutes ]
    Conduct a full endoscopy via g-tube port. Advance the scope to all standard locations including proximal esophagus, distal esophagus, stomach, duodenal bulb and the second part of the duodenum. Obtain at least 2 specimens from each location.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. anesthesia related adverse reactions [ Time Frame: 15 minutes ]
    Assess the rate of anesthesia related adverse reactions. Specifically, record the number of oxygen desaturations during the endoscopy (vital signs are continuously recorded during the exam). After the procedure the anesthesia team will summarize any anesthesia adverse reactions that have occurred during the exam.
