Endoscopic ultrasound-guided gallbladder drainage (EUS-GBD) has been performed as an alternative to percutaneous drainage in surgically high-risk patients. Technical failures of EUS-GBD made by beginners are often attributed to failure of over-the-wire insertion of a fistula-dilating device or stent delivery system into the gallbladder, or stent misplacement in the final technical step. We herein report technical tips to prevent the failure of fistula dilation and provide tricks to avoid inward or outward stent misplacement.

Errors or mistakes committed by health professionals which result in harm to the patient. They include errors in diagnosis (DIAGNOSTIC ERRORS), errors in the administration of drugs and other medications (MEDICATION ERRORS), errors in the performance of surgical procedures, in the use of other types of therapy, in the use of equipment, and in the interpretation of laboratory findings. Medical errors are differentiated from MALPRACTICE in that the former are regarded as honest mistakes or accidents while the latter is the result of negligence, reprehensible ignorance, or criminal intent.
