Prospective Trial for Endoscopic Ultrasound Guided Gallbladder Drainage for Acute Cholecystitis in High Risk Patients

2014-08-27 03:12:49 | BioPortfolio


The investigators would like to conduct a prospective, randomized non-inferiority study to compare clinical outcome between endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) guided gallbladder drainage and percutaneous transhepatic gallbladder drainage (PTGBD) in high risk acute cholecystitis patients.


The primary outcome is to compare clinical resolution rate of EUS-guided gallbladder drainage versus percutaneous transhepatic gallbladder drainage in acute cholecystitis patients with high risk.

The secondary outcome is to compare complications, conversion rate to open cholecystectomy during laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
