This retrospective study was aimed at assessing the efficacy of endoscopic dilation for esophageal anastomotic strictures, and to compare response between caustic anastomotic strictures (CAS) and non-...
Biliary strictures can be broadly classified as benign or malignant. Benign biliary strictures are most commonly iatrogenic in nature and are a consequence of hepatobiliary surgery. Cholangiocarcinoma...
Biliary strictures represent some of the most frequent complications encountered after orthotopic liver transplantation. They comprise an array of biliary abnormalities with variations in anatomical l...
Endoscopic dilation for severe benign biliary stricture using mechanical dilation devices is occasionally ineffective. Hence, diathermic dilation has recently been gaining attention as a salvage proce...
A non-randomized prospective clinical, pilot study in a single centre assessing the safety and feasibility of the esophageal biodegradable covered stent for refractory benign esophageal st...
A randomized controlled prospective clinical trial assessing the efficacy and safety of progressive esophageal dilation compared to conservative esophageal dilation in patients with severe...
A novel stent, called Universal Partially Covered Removable Self-expanding Stent and Anchoring System for the Treatment of Refractory Benign Esophageal Strictures (UAS-RBS) was designed to...
Esophageal stents are commonly used for benign esophageal pathology, especially strictures or esophageal mucosal defects such as leaks, fistulae, or perforations. The major limiting factor...
The purpose of this study is to establish clinical proof of concept of temporary indwell of the WallFlex™ Esophageal Fully Covered Metal Stent (FCMS) for the treatment of refractory ben...
The new and thickened layer of scar tissue that forms on a PROSTHESIS, or as a result of vessel injury especially following ANGIOPLASTY or stent placement.
Postoperative hemorrhage from an endovascular AORTIC ANEURYSM repaired with endoluminal placement of stent grafts (BLOOD VESSEL PROSTHESIS IMPLANTATION). It is associated with pressurization, expansion, and eventual rupture of the aneurysm.
A pathological condition characterized by the presence of a number of ESOPHAGEAL DIVERTICULA in the ESOPHAGUS.
Surgical incision of the lower esophageal sphincter near the CARDIA often used to treat ESOPHAGEAL ACHALASIA.
A type of surgical portasystemic shunt to reduce portal hypertension with associated complications of esophageal varices and ascites. It is performed percutaneously through the jugular vein and involves the creation of an intrahepatic shunt between the hepatic vein and portal vein. The channel is maintained by a metallic stent. The procedure can be performed in patients who have failed sclerotherapy and is an additional option to the surgical techniques of portocaval, mesocaval, and splenorenal shunts. It takes one to three hours to perform. (JAMA 1995;273(23):1824-30)
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. &...
