The effectiveness of endobiliary radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is still uncertain, especially in patients with malignant hilar biliary obstruction (MHBO). We examined the efficacy of endobiliary RFA followed by bilateral self-expandable metal stent (SEMS) placement for unresectable MHBO.

Treatment of adenoma of the major duodenal papilla is often a challenge for the endoscopist. We report about two patients with papillary adenoma who had residual adenoma in the center of the ductus he...
Endoscopic bilateral self-expandable metal stent (SEMS) deployment in a partial stent-in-stent fashion for malignant hilar biliary obstruction is technically challenging, especially for cases with sur...
Malignant hepatic hilar obstruction (MHBO) can be treated with bilateral self-expandable metal stents (SEMS) deployed using side-by-side (SBS) or stent-in-stent (SIS) techniques. Moving cell stents (M...
Endobiliary radiofrequency ablation (RFA) with biliary stent has been reported to be a beneficial treatment option for palliation of malignant biliary strictures. RFA uses a high-frequency...

Malignant obstructive jaundice is a common complication of advanced stage cholangiocarcinoma, gallbladder cancer, and pancreatic cancer. In biliary stricture by malignancy, biliary drainag...
Malignant obstructive jaundice is a common complication of advanced stage cholangiocarcinoma, GB cancer, and pancreatic cancer. In biliary stricture by malignancy, biliary drainage with pl...
This phase-2 study aims to evaluate feasibility, safety and efficacy of thermal ablation of biliary obstructive malignancies by means of radiofrequency ablation (RFA, ELRA, StarMed) during...
Endoscopic radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a new palliation therapy for malignant bile duct obstruction. It delivers a high amount of thermal energy to target tissue and may prolong the d...
The application, via IMPLANTED ELECTRODES, of short bursts of electrical energy in the radiofrequency range, interspersed with pauses in delivery of the current long enough to dissipate the generated heat and avoid heat-induced tissue necrosis.
A liquid resinous varnish solubilized in a volatile solvent which may be combined with a pigment. It forms a hard, glossy, and protective coating when applied to wood or metal.
Removal of tissue by vaporization, abrasion, or destruction. Methods used include heating tissue by hot liquids or microwave thermal heating, freezing (CRYOABLATION), chemical ablation, and photoablation with LASERS.
Group of rare congenital disorders characterized by impairment of both humoral and cell-mediated immunity, leukopenia, and low or absent antibody levels. It is inherited as an X-linked or autosomal recessive defect. Mutations occurring in many different genes cause human Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID).
Neutral or negatively charged ligands bonded to metal cations or neutral atoms. The number of ligand atoms to which the metal center is directly bonded is the metal cation's coordination number, and this number is always greater than the regular valence or oxidation number of the metal. A coordination complex can be negative, neutral, or positively charged.
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. &...
