Clinical Trial Summary

Objectives: To evaluate the efficacy of gastric per oral endoscopic pyloromyotomy (G-POEM) in the treatment of gastroparesis.

Endpoints Primary endpoint: Clinical Efficacy Will be assessed by measurements of Gastroparesis Cardinal Symptoms Index (GCSI) score, Patient Assessment of Gastrointestinal Disorders Symptom Severity Index (PAGI-SYM) and the 36-Item Short Form Health Survey (SF-36). Outcome criteria will be measured at baseline, 1 month, 5 months, 7 months and 12 months. These criteria will be the mean total GCSI score, and SF-36 score based on the values recorded with a Likert scale. GES parameters will be the half gastric emptying time and the RPH2.

Secondary endpoint: Safety Safety will be characterized by the incidence of all Adverse Device Effects (ADEs), non-serious and serious, possibly related to or related to the procedure and/or device that are experienced by study participants.

In addition, safety assessments will be determined based on physical examination (vital signs) and laboratory tests during scheduled visits. Safety evaluations will also be performed to ensure no subsequent adverse events have occurred and to ensure any adverse events during the trial that are considered on-going are stable or have resolved. Safety will be assessed at 1 month, 5 months, 7 months and 12 months following the intervention.

Other secondary endpoints will be technical success, nutritional status assessed by the measurement of the BMI, pre-albumin and albumin levels and for diabetics the HbA1c. These criteria will be measured at baseline, 1 month, 5 months, 7 months and 12 months.

Overall design This will be a prospective, sham-randomized, monocentric, interventional, efficacy study.

Once baseline eligibility criteria have been met, a first endoscopy under general anesthesia is proposed to the patients. Patients will be randomized blindly in a 1/1 fashion design between the sham arm and the GPOEM arm. At the time of the general anesthesia, a sealed envelope will be opened. Subjects will have a second endoscopy under general anesthesia 6 months later and the sham arm will then beneficiate from a GPOEM procedure and the GPOEM arm a sham procedure. Then, all the patients will be followed for another 6 months.

GCSI score, PAGI-SYM, SF36 will be collected at screening, 1,5,7 and 12 months. GES RPH2, RPH4 and half emptying time will be collected at screening, 5 months and 12 months.

Study procedures

Description procedure in the GPOEM arm:

The intervention will be performed under general anesthesia with tracheal intubation in supine position. GPOEM is performed with the following steps: -i: submucosal injection; -ii: mucosal incision upstream the pylorus followed by submucosal tunneling; -iii: antropyloromyotomy; -iv: closure of the tunnel access.

Description procedure in the SHAM arm:

A diagnostic upper digestive tract endoscopy will be performed under general anesthesia with tracheal intubation in supine position, injection of 1 cc of saline at four quadrants of the pylorus.

Post-operative management Once the patients recovered from anesthesia after the procedure, they were administrated analgesics and anti-emetics as needed and esomeprazole 80 mg daily systematically to protect the mucosal access and tunnel from ulceration. Patients will be kept fasted for the first postoperative day (POD 1). In the absence of adverse events, patients will be allowed to resume liquid oral intake for 1 day, a soft-ground diet for 2 additional days, and finally a normal diet. They will be discharged after POD 1 in the absence of adverse events, with a prescription of esomeprazole 40 mg daily by mouth for 1 month and dietary instructions.

After 6 months, another endoscopy under general anesthesia will be performed with the SHAM and GPOEM arms are interchanged.

After the G-POEM / SHAM procedure, all patients will be rigorously evaluated in the same fashion. They will be assessed clinically before being discharged (POD 1) and then at 1 month and 5 months after the intervention with a clinical examination that included determination of the severity of the symptoms and total GCSI score, PAGI-SYM, SF-36. A GES will be performed at 5 months and 12 months.
