BACKGROUND/AIM: We aimed to examine the effect of plastic biliary stenting in the treatment of common bile duct (CBD) stones. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The data of 13,034 patients in our unit who had endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) between 2008 and 2015 were scanned retrospectively. RESULTS: A biliary stent was placed in 61 of 74 patients. While the plastic biliary stent was placed in patients, the mean stone size after the 1st ERCP was 20 mm and the bile duct size was 13 mm...

Background: Models for endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography training allow practice with an expert feedback and without risks. A method to rapidly exchange the papilla can be time saving and accelerate the learning curve. Aim: To demonstrate a newly method of rapid exchange papilla in ex-vivo models to teach retrograde cholangiopancreatography advanced procedures. Methods: A new model of ex-vivo papilla was developed in order to resemble live conditions of procedures as cannulation, papilotomy or fistula-papilotomy, papiloplasty, biliary dilatation, plastic and metallic stentings...

BACKGROUND: Benign biliary stricture is a rare condition and the majority of the cases are caused by operative trauma or chronic inflammation based on various etiology. Although the initial results of endoscopic, percutaneous and surgical treatment are impressive, no comparison about long term stricture resolution is available. AIMS: The goal of this study was to compare the long term disease free survival in benign biliary strictures with various etiology after surgery, percutaneous transhepatic-and endoscopic treatment...

PURPOSE: Biliary stents may cause artifacts in MR-images. These artifacts are caused by differences in susceptibility (artifact-1), eddy currents during read-out (artifact-2) and eddy currents due to the excitation pulse (artifact-3), which all are MRI sequence-dependent. In this study, we investigated and quantified the magnitude of these artifacts as a function of the distance from biliary stents, using a sequence-independent approach where possible. METHODS: Eight phantoms were made containing different commercial biliary stents made of nitinol, platinol, stainless steel or polyethylene...

BACKGROUND: Fully covered self-expandable metal stents (FCSEMS) have been used successfully in the treatment of malignant and benign biliary strictures. However, stent migration is a major complication. We investigated the efficacy of anchoring FCSEMS with a 10-Fr double-pigtail plastic stent to prevent migration in patients with biliary strictures. METHODS: Between January 2012 and May 2013, 10 patients with malignant biliary strictures and one patient with a suprapapillary benign biliary stenosis were enrolled in the study...

BACKGROUND: Surgically altered gastrointestinal anatomy poses challenges for deep enteroscopy. Current overtube-assisted methods have long procedure times and utilize endoscopes with smaller working channels that preclude use of standard accessories. A through-the-scope balloon-assisted enteroscopy (TTS-BAE) device uses standard endoscopes with a large working channel to allow metallic and plastic stent insertion. We aim to determine the efficacy and safety of TTS-BAE in patients with altered surgical anatomy...

BACKGROUND: ASGE and ESGE guidelines recommend endoscopic metal stent placement for pancreatic carcinoma patients with biliary obstruction, and whose estimated life expectancy is greater than 6 months. Because median overall survival (OS) of metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma until recently has been less than 6 months, plastic biliary stents were preferentially placed rather than metal due to the greater upfront cost of the latter. Recent advances in the treatment of metastatic pancreatic cancer have extended median OS beyond the 6-month range...

Bile leakage after duct-to-duct anastomosis in living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT) can mostly be managed by therapeutic endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography. Following this, various complications such as biliary infection, pancreatitis, perforation, and bleeding can occur, and endoscopic sphincterotomy is primarily associated with post- endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography bleeding; other causes have been published in case reports. In the present case, a plastic biliary stent used for treating liver abscesses and leakage at the bile duct anastomosis site after ABO-incompatible LDLT resulted in an intrahepatic artery pseudoaneurysm and hemobilia, which were managed by angiography and coil embolization...

Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) provides the unique opportunity to visualize, interrogate and intervene gastrointestinal (GI) luminal, mural or peri-luminal structures and pathology with negligible adverse effects. Diagnostic, upper GI and rectal EUS is feasible, extremely safe, and efficacious. Most EUS guided interventions are safe, effective and minimally invasive, compared to peers in the percutaneous radiological or surgical procedures. As with any endoscopic procedure, EUS and its guided interventions may be accompanied by adverse events...

BACKGROUND: Palliative therapy and primarily chemoradiotherapy are the mainstream treatments in patients with locally advanced or metastatic pancreatic cancer (PC). Conventional endoscopy and endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided interventional therapy has emerged as an important procedure for PC management. In this review, the progress in conventional endoscopy and EUS for PC management is discussed. SUMMARY: For local palliative therapy against PC, EUS-guided fine needle injection (FNI) could deliver different kinds of agents, such as radioactive seeds and fiducials...

Jonathan M Lorenz
The diagnosis of malignant biliary obstruction combines the use of clinical evaluation, diagnostic imaging, tissue sampling, and minimally invasive options with the initial goal of identifying candidates for curative resection. The most common causes of obstruction are pancreatic adenocarcinoma and cholangiocarcinoma, and most cases are too advanced for surgical options. Interventional radiologists and gastroenterologists offer palliative options for biliary drainage such as plastic stents and catheters, bare metal stents, and covered stents...

OBJECTIVES: Self-expandable metal stents (SEMS) are thought to have an advantage over plastic stents in achieving biliary drainage. METHODS: We performed a systematic search of MEDLINE, EMBASE, Scopus, CENTRAL, and ISI Web of knowledge databases, from January 1980 to September 2015, for randomized-controlled trials (RCTs) comparing SEMS vs. plastic stents in the palliation of malignant biliary obstruction. Primary outcomes were durations of stent patency, patient survival, and 30-day mortality...

BACKGROUND: Biliary complications represent a turning point in the course of Alveolar Echinococcosis (AE). We conducted a European survey to collect data on the current usage and results of perendoscopic interventions (PEIs) for their treatment. METHODS: Patient's characteristics and follow-up until January 31st, 2015 were recorded using an online questionnaire. RESULTS: From 18 centers 129 PEIs were analyzed in 38 patients; 139 plastic stents were inserted during 85 PEIs; median time between stent placements was significantly longer when 3 stents or more were placed...

BACKGROUND: Biliary strictures (BS) are a common complication of liver transplantation. The standard treatment is sequential insertion of increasing numbers of plastic stents by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). Despite high success rates, some strictures fail to resolve and require surgery as definitive treatment. GOALS: To identify predictors of response or failure of standard endoscopic treatment, allowing earlier referral to alternative modalities when needed and avoiding unnecessary procedures...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Biliary self-expandable metallic stents (SEMSs) are widely used to treat malignant and benign conditions of bile duct. Despite their lower rate of occlusion and longer patency than plastic stents, SEMSs still have significant rates of occlusion. We aimed to identify factors associated with occlusion of biliary SEMS. METHODS: We performed a retrospective study of consecutive patients who underwent endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography with biliary SEMS placement at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation from March 2011 to April 2016...

Background and study aims: Biliary stent dysfunction is mainly caused by biliary sludge that forms as a result of bacterial adherence and subsequent biofilm formation on the inner surface of the stent. Silver ions arewell known to have excellent antimicrobial activity against a wide range of microorganisms. In this study, we designed and constructed silver-coated plastic stent (PS) and investigated whether the silver coating prevented bacterial adherence and biofilm formation through the use of electron microscopy...
