Summary

This is a non-inferiority randomized study to compare a plastic stent without central lumen (VIADUCT) with self-expandable metal stents for treatment of malignant obstruction of the common bile duct. It is a non-interventional study, a CE mark for the VIADUCT stent exists.

Biliary Metal Stent Study: Metal Stents for Management of Distal Malignant Biliary Obstruction

The primary purpose is to compare patency of two different types of biliary metal stents, i.e. covered versus uncovered Nitinella metal stent. Secondary purposes are to determine frequency...

The Effect of Aspirin on Patency of Metal Stent in Malignant Distal Bile Duct Obstruction

The aim of this study is to determine whether administration of aspirin can help maintain the patency of metallic stents for distal malignant common bile duct obstruction. Metal stents are...

Efficacy of Partial Covered Double Bare Metal Stent Compared to Uncovered Double Bare Metal Stent in Malignant Biliary Obstruction

Previous studies indicated that covered stents are less likely to become occluded in comparison to bare stents. While the probability of occlusions caused by tumor in-growth is less in cov...

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

Endoscopic insertion of plastic or metal stents in introhepatic bile duct under endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography is a well established treatment of malignant or benign biliar...

Uncovered Self-expandable Metal Stent Versus Double Layer Plastic Stent for Malignant Hilar Stricture

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Stents that are covered with materials that are embedded with chemicals that are gradually released into the surrounding milieu.

Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.

Methods for assessing the patency of the fallopian tubes.

Neutral or negatively charged ligands bonded to metal cations or neutral atoms. The number of ligand atoms to which the metal center is directly bonded is the metal cation's coordination number, and this number is always greater than the regular valence or oxidation number of the metal. A coordination complex can be negative, neutral, or positively charged.

Proteases which use a metal, normally ZINC, in the catalytic mechanism. This group of enzymes is inactivated by metal CHELATORS.
