Biliary obstruction can be relieved by biliary stent. Ascending infection of biliary passage (cholangitis) causes hospitalization and obstruction of stents. Reflux of intestinal fluids through a stent is thought to be one of the causes of cholangitis. Stents with antireflux valves are designed to reduce the reflux from the bowel. The purpose of the study is to investigate prospectively whether it is possible to reduce the amount of infection and thus obstruction of biliary stent by using a stent with an antireflux valve compared to a normal stent without an antireflux valve.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Evaluation of ERCP with placement of a winged plastic biliary stent without a lumen for management of benign biliary strictures.
1. Biliary duct injury are a relatively frequent complication of hepatobiliary surgery, most comonly laparoscopic cholecystecomy. 2. Prior to the development of more sophisticated ...
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 purpose of this study is to compare the duration of stent patency of a covered vs. an uncovered biliary self-expandable metal stents (SEMS) placed to relieve biliary obstruction in pat...
The placement of a self-expandable metal stent (SEMS) is widely used in patients with unresectable malignant biliary obstructions, but SEMSs are susceptible to occlusion by tumor ingrowth or overgr...
Endoscopic ultrasound-guided biliary drainage is an alternative to percutaneous biliary drainage in cases of malignant biliary obstruction and failure of classic endoscopic drainage by endoscopic r...
Biodegradable self-expanding stents are an emerging alternative to standard biliary stents as the development of endoscopic insertion devices advances. The aim was to systematically review the existin...
Cannulation of the major papilla can be problematic and selective biliary cannulation may fail in up to 18% of cases. Various techniques, such as double-guidewire technique (DGWT), wire-guided cannula...
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.
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)
Tumors or cancer in the BILIARY TRACT including the BILE DUCTS and the GALLBLADDER.
A motility disorder characterized by biliary COLIC, absence of GALLSTONES, and an abnormal GALLBLADDER ejection fraction. It is caused by gallbladder dyskinesia and/or SPHINCTER OF ODDI DYSFUNCTION.
A stent is a small mesh tube that's used to treat narrow or weak arteries. Arteries are blood vessels that carry blood away from your heart to other parts of your body. A stent is placed in an artery as part of a procedure called angioplasty. &...
