Biliary Drainage Preceding Possible Pancreaticoduodenectomy. Are Self-expandable Metallic Stents (SEMS) Superior to Plastic Stents?

2017-11-29 06:28:09 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study looks in to the rate of biliary stent dysfunction for plastic and metallic stents in patients who need biliary drainage due to a tumor in pancreas before possible pancreaticoduodenectomy. Complications related to the biliary decompression, and possible post-surgical complications in all patients are also recorded.

This trial aims to confirm whether metallic biliary stents really are superior to plastic stents as some previous studies suggest. Specific patient groups are also evaluated individually to see, whether patients with ongoing cholangitis at the time of diagnosis or patients receiving neoadjuvant treatments have less stent dysfunction cases and complications with metallic stents than with plastic stents.

The Patency Period of the New Plastic Anti-reflux Biliary Stent

The aim of this study is to determine the average patency period of the new anti-reflux biliary stent on patients with malignant bile duct strictures and to determine if this stent remains...

Comparing Covered Self-expandable Metallic Stent (SEMS) Above/Across the Sphincter of Oddi

The purpose of this prospective, randomized multicenter study is to determine whether there is any difference in stent patency of covered metallic stents in terms of stent positioning, abo...

Covered Versus Uncovered SEMS for Palliation of Malignant Biliary Strictures.

The purpose of this study is to compare the duration of stent patency of a covered vs. an uncovered biliary self-expandable metal stents (SEMS) placed to relieve biliary obstruction in pat...

Treatment of Biliary Obstruction Using Biliary Stent With or Without Antireflux Valve

Biliary obstruction can be relieved by biliary stent. Ascending infection of biliary passage (cholangitis) causes hospitalization and obstruction of stents. Reflux of intestinal fluids thr...

Safety, efficacy, and removability of a fully covered multi-hole metal stent in a swine model of hilar biliary stricture: a feasibility study.

Use of fully covered self-expandable metal stents (FCSEMS) for biliary drainage of malignant hilar biliary strictures is limited because of risk of cholangitis due to side branch obstruction. The aim ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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

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.

Infection of the biliary passages with CLONORCHIS SINENSIS, also called Opisthorchis sinensis. It may lead to inflammation of the biliary tract, proliferation of biliary epithelium, progressive portal fibrosis, and sometimes bile duct carcinoma. Extension to the liver may lead to fatty changes and cirrhosis. (From Dorland, 27th ed)

Cylindrical metallic tubes that are inserted to hold open a structure in order to treat vascular, bile duct, esophageal and other tubular organ constrictions.

Tumors or cancer in the BILIARY TRACT including the BILE DUCTS and the GALLBLADDER.
