The purpose of this study is to compare the duration of stent patency between partially covered and fully covered SEMS for palliation of malignant distal bile duct obstruction.
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...
The aim of this animal study is determining the technical feasibility of the novel flower-type covered self-expandable metal stent (F-CSEMS) and investigating whether the novel flower-type...
Investigators aim to compare the efficacy of 8 mm Fluency covered stent and bare stent in transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) for the treatment of cirrhotic portal hyperte...
We implemented a hysterectomy-specific surgical site infection prevention bundle after a higher-than-expected surgical site infection rate was identified at our institution. We evaluate how this bundl...
Covered esophageal self-expandable metal stents (SEMSs) are currently used for palliation of malignant dysphagia. The optimal extent of the covering to prevent recurrent obstruction is unknown. The...
To compare the value of Procalcitonin (PCT) as a marker of surgical site infection to other inflammatory markers, including C-Reactive Protein (CRP), White Cell Count (WCC) and Erythrocyte Sedimentati...
To compare outcomes in patients receiving polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and polyurethane (PL) covered stents (CS) after coronary artery perforation (CAP).
EUS-guided transmural drainage (EUS-TD) using a covered biflanged metal stent (CBFMS) and a conventional tubular biliary covered self-expandable metal stent (CSEMS) has recently been performed by EUS ...
