BACKGROUND: It has been suggested that EUS-BD may be a feasible and safer alternative to percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD) after failed ERCP in patients with ascites. To date, no study has specifically evaluated the performance of EUS-BD in this context. METHODS: Retrospective analysis was done for patients with and without ascites who underwent EUS-BD for malignant biliary obstruction after failed ERCP between July 2010 and September 2014. Complications and technical and clinical successes between the two groups were compared...

In the present case with lower bile duct cancer, an endoscopic ultrasound-guided hepaticogastrostomy (EUS-HGS) was placed because of repeated obstructions of biliary metallic stent. However, when the HGS was occluded, transpapillary duodenoscopic procedure was again required. During this transpapillary procedure, including biliary balloon cleaning and metallic stent deployment, the HGS stent was dislocated into the stomach. Fortunately, due to the complete fistulization, no bile peritonitis was recognized and an HGS stent could be replaced from the gastric wall three days later...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: EUS-guided hepaticogastrostomy (EUS-HGS) is performed as an alternative to the percutaneous or surgical approach. Despite high success rates, the adverse events rate is high. Recently, we used 6-mm fully-covered self-expandable metal stents (FCSEMS) to prevent adverse events and allow easy re-intervention. The purposes were to evaluate the safety, feasibility and clinical efficacy. METHODS: A prospective study to confirm the safety of EUS-HGS was carried out in six patients, followed by a trial to evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of EUS-HGS in approximately 12 additional patients...

Background and study aims:  Endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERC) in patients with complex surgically-altered anatomy (SAA) is technically demanding and has limitations. Developments in EUS-guided procedures allow alternative approaches for patients with altered gastrointestinal anatomy and biliary lithiasis. Patients and methods:  Single-center, retrospective review of prospectively entered patients with SAA who underwent EUS-guided hepaticogastrostomy (HGS) followed by an interval antegrade endoscopic clearance of biliary lithiasis...

Background and aims:  EUS-guided biliary drainage (EUS-BD) and rendezvous (EUS-RV) are acceptable rescue options for patients with failed endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). However, there are limited training opportunities at most centers owing to low case volumes. The existing models do not replicate the difficulties encountered during EUS-BD. We aimed to develop and validate a model for stepwise learning of EUS-BD and EUS-RV, which replicates the actual EUS-BD procedures...

PURPOSE: Although EUS-guided hepaticogastrostomy (EUS-HGS) with a covered self-expandable metal stent (SEMS) is a useful procedure, it is associated with severe adverse events, including stent migration. We, therefore, developed an intra-conduit release method, and investigated whether the technique yields a safer and more stable procedure. METHODS: The intra-conduit release method is a procedure to release the SEMS in the working channel conduit of the scope for anchoring between the liver and stomach to avoid stent migration...

Aims: To evaluate the success rate and related factors of endoscopic ultrasound guided-biliary drainage (EUS-BD). Material and Methods: We conducted a retrospective study among 24 patients with malignant biliary obstruction who underwent EUS-BD after failed ERCP from January 2015 to December 2016 in a tertiary health center. The bilirubin levels before and after the procedure were used to define the clinical success rate, while the stent deployment was used to define the technical success rate...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Endoscopic ultrasound-guided biliary drainage (EUS-BD) has emerged as an alternative in cases of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) failure. Two types of EUS-BD methods for achieving biliary drainage when ERCP fails are choledochoduodenostomy (CDS) or hepaticogastrostomy (HGS). However, there is no consensus if one approach is better than the other. Therefore, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate these 2 main EUS-BD methods...

OBJECTIVE: EUS-guided hepaticogastrostomy (EUS-HGS) is often indicated for advanced stage patients because it prevents the adverse events associated with EUS-HGS procedures, and provides long stent patency. EUS-guided antegrade stenting (AS) has been developed as an advanced technique. Thus, to prevent adverse events and achieve, long stent patency, EUS-AS combined with EUS-HGS (EUS-HGAS) has been reported. The aim of this study was to evaluate the technical feasibility and efficacy of EUS-HGAS in a multicenter, prospective study...

OBJECTIVE: Endoscopic transpapillary or endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided stent placement is used for nonresectable distal malignant biliary obstruction. We conducted a retrospective study to evaluate endoscopic biliary drainage in patients with duodenal obstruction. METHODS: We included consecutive patients who underwent endoscopic biliary drainage combined with a duodenal stent at 16 referral centers in four Asian countries. The primary outcome was time to recurrent biliary obstruction (TRBO)...

BACKGROUND: Results of endoscopic ultrasound-guided biliary drainage (EUBD) are unknown in case of proximal stricture. The aim is to assess clinical outcomes of EUBD in patients with malignant hilar obstruction. METHODS: Patients undergoing EUBD with hilar strictures were prospectively included. Primary outcome was clinical success at 7 and 30 days (defined by 50% bilirubin decrease). Secondary outcomes were technical success, procedure-related complications, length of hospital stay, reintervention rate, survival and chemotherapy administration...
