Endoscopic ultrasound-guided hepaticogastrostomy (EUS-HGS) is useful as an alternative biliary drainage for patients with a difficult biliary approach, but the procedure has a high complication rate . We present a case in which a stent that migrated into the peritoneal cavity was removed endoscopically under fluoroscopic guidance. A 72-year-old male with esophageal cancer presented to our department for treatment of obstructive jaundice. Metastatic peritonitis caused stricture of the distal bile duct and the duodenum. He underwent EUS-HGS and received a long, partially covered metal stent (LP-CMS; Niti-S Modified-GIOBOR stent, TaeWoong Medical, Seoul, Korea). This article is protected by copyright.

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 study hypothesis is that placement of LAMS plus an overlapping double pigtail stent for endoscopic transmural drainage of PFCs with solid debris will result in improved drainage and re...
RATIONALE: The use of endoscopy to place a metal stent in the large intestine is less invasive than surgery for treating cancer-related bowel obstruction and may have fewer side effects an...
The aim of this animal study is determining the technical feasibility of the novel flower-type covered self-expandable metal stent (F-CSEMS) and investigating whether the novel flower-type...
The primary purpose is to compare patency of two different types of biliary metal stents, i.e. covered versus uncovered Nitinella metal stent. Secondary purposes are to determine frequency...
Portable peritoneal dialysis using the continuous (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) presence of peritoneal dialysis solution in the peritoneal cavity except for periods of drainage and instillation of fresh solution.
Disorder characterized by a wide range of structural changes in PERITONEUM, resulting from fibrogenic or inflammatory processes. Peritoneal fibrosis is a common complication in patients receiving PERITONEAL DIALYSIS and contributes to its gradual decrease in efficiency.
Natural openings in the subdiaphragmatic lymphatic plexus in the PERITONEUM, delimited by adjacent mesothelial cells. Peritoneal stomata constitute the principal pathways for the drainage of intraperitoneal contents from the PERITONEAL CAVITY to the LYMPHATIC SYSTEM.
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.
Uptake of substances from the PERITONEAL CAVITY.
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. &...
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...
