Clinical Studies

Active clinical trials include the following:

  • Durability of the self-approximating translumenal access technique (STAT) for potential use in natural orifice translumenal surgery (NOTES)
  • Transgastric organ resection solely with the prototype R-scope and the self-approximating transluminal access technique
  • Directed submucosal tunneling permits in-line endoscope positioning for transgastric natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery (NOTES)
  • Parastomal hernia repair: a single center experience
  • Technique for transesophageal endoscopic cardiomyotomy (Heller myotomy)
  • Self-approximating transluminal access technique for natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery: a porcine survival study
  • A self-approximating transluminal access technique for potential use in NOTES: an ex vivo porcine model
  • Surgical Outcomes and quality of life after Heller Myotomy for Achalasia
  • Surgical Outcomes and quality of life after Paraesophageal hernia repair
