Endoscopic papillary balloon dilation (EPBD) was introduced to overcome the risk of adverse events associated with endoscopic sphincterotomy in the removal of common bile duct (CBD) stones. We performed a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing efficacy and safety of EPBD vs. endoscopic sphincterotomy, focusing on stone size, balloon diameter, and balloon dilation time.

Endoscopic sphincterotomy plus balloon dilation (ESBD) is considered to be a promising method for the removal of large common bile duct (CBD) stones. However, when compared with endoscopic sphincte...
It is currently unclear whether endoscopic papillary balloon dilation (EPBD) is associated with increased severe postendoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography pancreatitis (PEP)-related morbidity...
With the aging population, an increasing number of individuals on antithrombotic agents are diagnosed with large bile duct stones. Studies have shown the effectiveness of endoscopic papillary large ba...
Endoscopic papillary large-balloon dilation (EPLBD) allows for the complete removal of large common bile duct (CBD) stones without fragmentation; however, a significant proportion of very large sto...
This study compares the effect of endoscopic sphincterotomy and endoscopic papillary balloon dilation in the treatment of acute biliary pancreatitis.Participants with acute biliary pancrea...
Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is commonly performed to remove bile duct stones.Endoscopic sphincterotomy (EST), endoscopic papillary balloon dilation (EPBD), and en...
Our aim is to compare the efficacy, safety, procedural time required, and costs of a strategy initially employing cholangioscopy guided laser lithotripsy versus a strategy initially using ...
The purpose of this study is to determine how different endoscopic papillary balloon dilatation (EPBD) duration time affects the complications after endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreat...
To compare the technique of combined balloon sphincter dilation after an initial sphincterotomy and standard sphincterotomy in the endoscopic removal of large bile duct stones. We hypothes...
Meta-analysis of randomized trials in which estimates of comparative treatment effects are visualized and interpreted from a network of interventions that may or may not have been evaluated directly against each other. Common considerations in network meta-analysis include conceptual and statistical heterogeneity and incoherence.
Works consisting of studies using a quantitative method of combining the results of independent studies (usually drawn from the published literature) and synthesizing summaries and conclusions which may be used to evaluate therapeutic effectiveness, plan new studies, etc. It is often an overview of clinical trials. It is usually called a meta-analysis by the author or sponsoring body and should be differentiated from reviews of literature.
Dilation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.
Nonoperative repair of occluded vessels, ducts, or valves by insertion of a balloon catheter. It is used, among other things, to treat varices, torn retinas, renal and biliary calculi, gastric, bronchial and rectal stenoses, and heart valves, and includes catheterization with Fogarty and Foley CATHETERS.
The use of balloon CATHETERS to remove emboli by retraction of the balloon that is inflated behind the EMBOLUS.
