The purpose of this study is to document stent functionality and practice patterns in Canada pertaining to indications for use and stent type selection for self-expanding biliary metal stents (SEMS) when used per standard of practice.
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 sten...
This is a a prospective study of the WallFlex™ Biliary Partially-covered Stent designed to collect data to support regulatory clearance by the FDA in the United States and to determine the functionality of the WallFlex™ Biliary Partially Covered Stent as a Palliative treatment for malignant bile duct obstruction.
To prospectively compare non-complex biliary stone clearance using fluoroscopy/radiation-free direct solitary cholangioscopy (DSC) utilizing the SpyGlass™ system with non-complex biliary stone clearance using standard endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERC).
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 endoscopic interventions, repeat surgery was often necessary for the management of biliary leaks. 3. Advances in technique and technology in gastroenterology endoscopy have largely replaced surgery as the first line intervention for biliary leak. 4. Most practices utilize...
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 of complications in the two groups, e.g. cholecystitis, pancreatitis, and cholangitis.
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 patients with inoperable extrahepatic malignant biliary obstruction.
Malignant obstructive jaundice is a common complication of advanced stage cholangiocarcinoma, GB cancer, and pancreatic cancer. In biliary stricture by malignancy, biliary drainage with placement of self-expanding metal stent (SEMS) for palliation is the therapy of choice in these patients. On hilar biliary malignant obstruction, bilateral stent used to be inserted. There are two kinds of bilateral metal stent insertion methods in hilar biliary malignant obstruction. (Stent in ...
The aim of this study is to determine the average patency period of the new anti-reflux biliary stent on patients with malignant bile duct strictures and to determine if this stent remains patent for a longer period of time comparing with the ordinary plastic Tannenbaum biliary stent.
The purpose of this study is to compare the clinical effectiveness and long-term outcomes between patients with pancreatic carcinoma and biliary obstruction who are treated by stent insertion with or without high-intensity focused ultrasound ablation.
This study looks in to the rate of biliary stent dysfunction for plastic and metallic stents in patients who need biliary drainage due to a tumor in pancreas before possible pancreaticoduodenectomy. Complications related to the biliary decompression, and possible post-surgical complications in all patients are also recorded. This trial aims to confirm whether metallic biliary stents really are superior to plastic stents as some previous studies suggest. Specific patient groups...
The aim of this study is to demonstrate that the group with an additional plastic stent to anchor the fully covered self expandable metal stent (FCSEMS) in patients with malignant biliary stricture has less stent migration than the group with FCSEMS only. The primary outcome is stent migration for 6 months. The secondary outcomes are stent related adverse events, stent patency, and overall survival.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Allium Biliary Stent in malignant obstructions of the common bile duct.
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate non-inferiority of Fully Covered biliary SEMS to Uncovered biliary SEMS in biliary drainage for the pre-operative management of biliary obstructive symptoms caused by pancreatic cancer in patients undergoing neoadjuvant therapy.
Endoscopic ultrasound guided biliary drainage (EUS-BD) is an evolving field that has grown in popularity in the management of malignant biliary obstruction. Although Endoscopic retrograde cholangio-pancreatography (ERCP) with stent insertion has been the mainstay therapy throughout several decades, the transpapillary approach through tumor tissue is associated with significant risk for adverse events such as post-ERCP pancreatitis and stent dysfunction from tumor tissue overgro...
Cholangitis is one of the main complications of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). Plastic biliary stent was used to prevent the occurrence of post-ERCP cholangitis, but the stent should be taken out 1-2 weeks after ERCP with endoscope again. 8.5 F plastic stent with proximal flap can discharge self-driven from biliary to the gut, it has the advantage of avoiding pulling stent out with endoscope again. The purpose of this study is to explore 8.5 F plastic st...
Prospective, randomized comparison of the incremental dilation and stent exchange vs. sequential stent addition approaches for management of anastomotic biliary strictures will facilitate optimal management of patients who develop anastomotic biliary strictures after liver transplantation.
Background and Study Aims: Biliary strictures are a major cause of morbidity following liver transplantation with an overall incidence between 10 and 30 %. Up to now biliary strictures were dilated subsequently one to three plastic stents with a diameter of eight to ten F were inserted. In general, stents were exchanged in two to three months intervals over one year. In the present prospective controlled study, efficacy and complication rates of balloon dilation have been compa...
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, above and across the sphincter of Oddi, in malignant bile duct obstruction.
Endoscopic insertion of plastic or metal stents in introhepatic bile duct under endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography is a well established treatment of malignant or benign biliary obstruction.Biliary stents are widely used to relieve symptoms of biliary stricture.Now, the mainly used biliary stents include plastic and metal stents. The main limitation of long time plastic stents is stents occlusion. Biliary plastic stents are changed every 2 to 3 months due to an expe...
Currently, routine preoperative biliary drainage (PBD) was not recommended. However, PBD is still necessary in case of patients with cholangitis or very high level of bilirubin or patients who are expected to receive delayed surgery. The aim of this clinical trial is to demonstrate non-inferiority of uncovered self-expandable metal stent to plastic stent for PBD by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography in patients with periampullary cancer undergoing curative intent ...
Post-surgical biliary strictures are common especially after cholecystectomy. Standard treatment involves the performance of multiple procedures over a 1 year period at least using several plastic stents to achieve permanent dilatation of these strictures. Metallic stents have the theoretical benefit of absence of need of multiple sessions. These strictures however are frequently very close to the hilum and thus previously considered a contraindication for insertion of metall...
Standard endoscopic management for anastomotic bile leaks following OLT has been endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) with placement of a temporary plastic biliary endoprosthesis (stent) across the site of anastomotic leak. While this intervention carries a high rate of technical success, clinical success is not universal. An alternative to placement of a plastic biliary stent is placement of a fully covered self-expanding metal stent (FCSEMS). Whereas a plasti...
This study compares the 6 mm nitinol Zilver biliary endoprostheses and the 10 mm nitinol Zilver biliary endoprostheses to the 10 mm Wallstent in appropriate patients in need of palliative treatment of malignant obstructive jaundice.
