Biodegradable Stent Implantation in Biliary Benign Strictures.

2019-10-10 09:39:43 | BioPortfolio


Spanish registry of resorbable stent implantation in biliary benign strictures.

This registry is sponsored by the Spanish Society of Vascular and Interventional Radiology (SERVEI) and conducted by the Research Group GITMI (Group of Research in Minimally Invasive Techniques) of the University of Zaragoza (Spain).

A software tool hosted on the official website of SERVEI and the journal Intervencionismo will be used for data collection a(


This is an prospective observational study of patients that have been implanted a biodegradable stent in the biliary tree.

Patients are recruited when the stent is implanted, and the investigators perfom a patients follow-up during 1, 3, 6, 12, 24, 36, 48 and 52 months.

This study is a prospective, randomized study to compare of outcome of fully covered metal stents with that of plastic stents for preoperative biliary drainage in distal common bile duct c...

Plastic vs. Covered Metal vs. Uncovered Metal Biliary Stents for the Management of Malignant Biliary Obstruction

This is a single center, randomized, unblinded study to compare the rate of occlusion of plastic, uncovered metal, or fully covered metal biliary stents in patient's with surgically resect...

Suspended Overlength Biliary Stents Preventing Duodenobiliary Reflux in Patients With Biliary Stricture

Predictors of stent occlusion in patients with unresectable pancreatic cancer after biliary metal stents.

Self-expandable metal stents (SEMS) are a widely accepted biliary endoprosthesis for patients with unresectable malignant biliary obstruction. Here, we identified predictors for the occlusion of SEMS ...

Acute biliary interventions.

Acute biliary conditions include cholangitis, obstruction, and biliary leakage. All these conditions may lead to severe biliary sepsis, which can be life threatening. Infected obstructed cholangitis i...

Long-term outcomes after temporary placement of a self-expanding fully covered metal stent for benign biliary strictures secondary to chronic pancreatitis.

Temporary single, fully covered self-expanding metal stent (FCSEMS) placement for benign biliary strictures (BBSs) associated with chronic pancreatitis (CP) may require fewer interventions than endoth...

Contrast of therapeutic effects between CBD incision and LLHD stump in biliary tract exploration of LLS for hepatolithiasis.

Laparoscopic left lateral sectionectomy (LLS) followed by a biliary tract exploration is used to treat left lateral hepatolithiasis. The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy of two method...

Endotherapy of postcholecystectomy biliary strictures with multiple plastic stents: long-term results in a large cohort of patients.

Endoscopic therapy of benign biliary strictures (BBSs) with multiple plastic stent (MPS) placement has shown satisfactory results. However, literature describes various BBS etiologies. Aim of this stu...

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.

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

A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.

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)
