Endoscopic placement of endoprostheses in the bile and pancreas duct system

Endoscopic placement of endoprostheses in the bile and pancreas duct system

Leber Magen Darm 15(6): 262-270

Endoscopic placement of endoprotheses in the bile and pacreatic duct system has opened up possibilities in palliative treatment of patients with obstructing tumors, where the risk of surgical intervention is too high,- the risk of this endoscopic procedure however being acceptable (complication rate 9,8%, letality 3.5%). Success rate of implanting proteheses into the bile duct is 90%, leading to improvement of jaundice in 80% of the cases. The endoportheses occlude on the average after 3 months by incrustation and then have to be replaced. The clinical relevance of draining the pancreas by this procedure cannot yet be evaluated because of lack of sufficient experience.
