Percutaneous hepaticoneojejunostomy and choledochocholedochal reanastomosis using metallic stents: Technical note
- 35 Downloads
A new, nonsurgical approach to biliary duct reconstruction in two high-operative risk patients is presented. The first patient with an obstructed hepaticojejunostomy underwent such reconstruction by placement of Wallstent, which remained patent 9 months until death from recurrent tumor. The second patient with an inadvertently ligated common bile duct underwent a combined percutaneous transhepatic-retrograde endoscopic reconstruction with placement of a Gianturco-Rösch (GR) stent. Because of occlusion by granulation tissue 5 months later, a new GR stent covered with a silicone membrane was placed within the initial stent. Nine months after the second GR stent placement there is no evidence of obstruction.
