This study is for patients with locoregional esophageal or gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) adenocarcinoma. This study is being done to find out if adding immunotherapy before and after usual approaches are better or worse than the usual approach for your locoregional esophageal or gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma.
It is well understood that gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a serious health condition.1 GERD, which often manifests as heartburn or regurgitation, is a chronic disorder associated with substantial morbidity and has a major adverse impact on patients quality of life.2, 3 Currently, there are limited options for GERD patients seeking a surgical option to treat their disease. One option for anti-reflux surgery is the LINX® Reflux Management System.4 The RETHINK REFLUX Registry (Research to further inform thinking about the role of LINX for Reflux Disease) will monitor long-term outcomes in the areas of safety, effectiveness, health economics and healthcare utilization over 10 years post-LINX surgery.
The study will compare two durations of treatment with Octreotide in patients with confirmed esophageal variceal hemorrhage who have undergone successful endoscopy and possible endoscopic therapy for control of bleeding. All procedures including the treatment are the standard of care. Octreotide infusion and endoscopic therapy for esophageal variceal bleeding are not investigational.
