EUS - Guided Choledocho-duodenostomy Versus ERCP With Covered Metallic Stents in Patients With Unresectable Malignant Distal Common Bile Duct Strictures

EUS - guided choledocho-duodenostomy (ECDS) is an established option for bile duct drainage in unresectable malignant distal CBD strictures when endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatogra...

EUS BD vs ERCP TP for Pancreatic Cancer

This Endoscopic Ultrasound guided Biliary Drainage (EUS-BD) vs. Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP-TP) trial (BILPAL) is a randomized controlled multicenter trial that wi...

Application of Endoscopic Scissors Cutting ENBD Tube in the Treatment of Malignant Hilar Biliary Strictures

The purpose of this study is to evaluate application value of the endoscopic cutting technique in the treatment of malignant hilar biliary strictures.

Cholangiography Using Carbon Dioxide Versus Iodinated Contrast in ERCP

Carbon dioxide (CO2) gas is widely used for luminal insufflation during endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) of the biliary tract. While frequently observed during routine...

Effect of 8.5 F Plastic Stent Without Proximal Flap on Prevention of Post-ERCP Cholangitis

Cholangitis is one of the main complications of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). Plastic biliary stent was used to prevent the occurrence of post-ERCP cholangitis, bu...

Endoscopic Ultrasound Guided Choledocho-Enterostomy by Using Lumen Apposing Metal Stent in Patients with Failed Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography: A Literature Review.

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) has been the cornerstone in the management of malignant jaundice to provide symptomatic relief and/or to allow chemotherapy. Difficult biliary can...

Urgent endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography is not superior to early ERCP in acute biliary pancreatitis with biliary obstruction without cholangitis.

Acute pancreatitis is a common diagnosis worldwide, with gallstone disease being the most prevalent cause (50%). The American College of Gastroenterology recommends urgent endoscopic retrograde cholan...

A pilot study of endoscopically inserted biodegradable biliary stents in the treatment of benign biliary strictures and cystic duct leaks.

Self-expanding biodegradable biliary stents (BDBSs) have recently become available for use in endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERC). The aim was to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of novel...

Surgeon-performed endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography. Outcomes of 2392 procedures at two tertiary care centers.

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a common procedure that, in the United States, is traditionally performed by gastroenterologists. We hypothesized that when performed by well-t...

Endoscopic management of pancreatobiliary neoplasms.

Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) are the mainstays of interventional endoscopic practice. EUS occupies a central role in the diagnosis of pancreato...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Incision of Oddi's sphincter or Vater's ampulla performed by inserting a sphincterotome through an endoscope (DUODENOSCOPE) often following retrograde cholangiography (CHOLANGIOPANCREATOGRAPHY, ENDOSCOPIC RETROGRADE). Endoscopic treatment by sphincterotomy is the preferred method of treatment for patients with retained or recurrent bile duct stones post-cholecystectomy, and for poor-surgical-risk patients that have the gallbladder still present.

Chronic inflammatory disease of the BILIARY TRACT. It is characterized by fibrosis and hardening of the intrahepatic and extrahepatic biliary ductal systems leading to bile duct strictures, CHOLESTASIS, and eventual BILIARY CIRRHOSIS.

Non-invasive diagnostic technique for visualizing the PANCREATIC DUCTS and BILE DUCTS without the use of injected CONTRAST MEDIA or x-ray. MRI scans provide excellent sensitivity for duct dilatation, biliary stricture, and intraductal abnormalities.

Abnormal passage in any organ of the biliary tract or between biliary organs and other organs.
