A Trial Comparing the Uncovered to the Covered Wallstent in the Palliation of Malignant Bile Duct Strictures

2014-08-27 03:16:45 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of the study is to determine the best management of bile duct narrowing (stricture) due to inoperable tumors. The bile duct is a tube that carries bile formed in the liver to the small bowel to digest fats. Tumors around the bile duct can compress the duct causing pain, jaundice (yellow skin and eyes), itchy skin and fever.

Conditions

Inoperable Tumors of the Bile Duct

Intervention

Wallstent, Non-Covered Wallstent

Status

Active, not recruiting

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Adenocarcinoma of the common hepatic duct bifurcation. These tumors are generally small, sharply localized, and seldom metastasizing. G. Klatskin's original review of 13 cases was published in 1965. Once thought to be relatively uncommon, tumors of the bifurcation of the bile duct now appear to comprise more than one-half of all bile duct cancers. (From Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1457)

Tumors or cancer of the BILE DUCTS.

A congenital anatomic malformation of a bile duct, including cystic dilatation of the extrahepatic bile duct or the large intrahepatic bile duct. Classification is based on the site and type of dilatation. Type I is most common.

The largest bile duct. It is formed by the junction of the CYSTIC DUCT and the COMMON HEPATIC DUCT.

The duct that is connected to the GALLBLADDER and allows the emptying of bile into the COMMON BILE DUCT.
