Endoscopic ultrasound-guided biliary drainage is an alternative to percutaneous biliary drainage in cases of malignant biliary obstruction and failure of classic endoscopic drainage by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). Recently, a new electrocautery-enhanced lumen-apposing metal stent (ECE-LAMS) that allows for endoscopic anastomosis (apposition stent) has become available for use in EUS-choledochoduodenostomy (EUS-CDS) and facilitates the procedure.

Endoscopic ultrasound-guided biliary drainage (EUS-BD) has been emerged as an alternative drainage technique for ERCP [1-3]. To date, various techniques regarding tract dilation have been reported inc...
We present five cases of pylorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy (PPPD) after endoscopic ultrasonography-guided choledochoduodenostomy (EUS-CD) using a lumen-apposing metal stent (LAMS) as a bridge...
Endoscopic ultrasound-guided biliary drainage (EUS-BD) can be performed via two different approaches: choledochoduodenostomy (CDS) and hepaticogastrostomy (HGS). We compared the efficacy and safety of...
The purpose of this study is to compare the effect of lumen-apposing metal stent (LAMS) and tubular metal stent on the drainage of pancreatic pseudocyst, mainly to observe the complication...
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of the AXIOS Stent with Electrocautery Enhanced Delivery System for endoscopic transenteric drainage of pancreatic ...
The purpose of this study is to compare the effect of lumen-apposing metal stent (LAMS) and traditional plastic stent on the drainage of pancreatic pseudocyst, mainly to observe the cyst r...
All patients will receive standard medical care and no experimental interventions will be performed. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) is a well-established pro...
This research study is being conducted to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of ablation (destruction) of uterine leiomyomas (fibroids) using electrocautery heating guided by ultrasound...
Conducting a fine needle biopsy with the aid of ENDOSCOPIC ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
The collecting of fetal blood samples via ultrasound-guided needle aspiration of the blood in the umbilical vein.
Endoscopic surgical procedures performed with visualization via video transmission. When real-time video is combined interactively with prior CT scans or MRI images, this is called image-guided surgery (see SURGERY, COMPUTER-ASSISTED).
Fiberoptic endoscopy designed for duodenal observation and cannulation of VATER'S AMPULLA, in order to visualize the pancreatic and biliary duct system by retrograde injection of contrast media. Endoscopic (Vater) papillotomy (SPHINCTEROTOMY, ENDOSCOPIC) may be performed during this procedure.
The use of ultrasound to guide minimally invasive surgical procedures such as needle ASPIRATION BIOPSY; DRAINAGE; etc. Its widest application is intravascular ultrasound imaging but it is useful also in urology and intra-abdominal conditions.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
Acute Coronary Syndromes ACS
Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS) is an umbrella term for situations where the blood supplied to the heart muscle is suddenly blocked. Treatment for acute coronary syndrome includes medicines and a procedure known as angioplasty, during which doctors inflat...
A stent is a small mesh tube that's used to treat narrow or weak arteries. Arteries are blood vessels that carry blood away from your heart to other parts of your body. A stent is placed in an artery as part of a procedure called angioplasty. &...
