Utilization of a Modified Roux-en-Y Anastomosis as an Access point for Percutaneous Transjejunal Cholangioplasty of Recurrent Biliary Strictures.

Cardiovasc Intervent Radiol 2019 Dec 6;42(12):1745-1750. Epub 2019 Sep 6.

Department of Interventional Radiology, Jackson Memorial Hospital/University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Miami, FL, USA.

Introduction: Biliary duct injuries pose a significant management challenge due to the propensity for recurrent biliary strictures. Development of a modified Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy known as a Hutson-Russell Pouch (HRP) provides a point of entry for repetitive access to the biliary tree. We aim to highlight the effectiveness of using the HRP as an access point for the long-term management of anastomotic and distal biliary strictures, thereby showcasing the value in potential widespread adoption of this modification to a standard surgical procedure.

Chang-Il Kwon

Korean J Gastroenterol 2019 Aug;74(2):69-80

Digestive Disease Center, CHA Bundang Medical Center, CHA University School of Medicine, Seongnam, Korea.

Pancreatic cancer is a major cause of cancer-related mortality and morbidity, and its incidence is increasing as the population is aging. On the other hand, significant improvement in the prognosis has not occurred. The absence of early diagnosis means that many patients are diagnosed only when they develop symptoms, such as jaundice, due to a biliary obstruction. Read More

Lumen-apposing metal stents for malignant biliary obstruction: Is this the ultimate horizon of our experience?

World J Gastroenterol 2019 Aug;25(29):3857-3869

Digestive Endoscopy Unit, Division of Gastroenterology, Humanitas Research Hospital, Milan 20089, Italy.

In the last years, endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) has evolved from a purely diagnostic technique to a more and more complex interventional procedure, with the possibility to perform several type of therapeutic interventions. Among these, EUS-guided biliary drainage (BD) is gaining popularity as a therapeutic approach after failed endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography in distal malignant biliary obstruction (MBO), due to the avoidance of external drainage, a lower rate of adverse events and re-interventions, and lower costs compared to percutaneous trans-hepatic BD. Initially, devices created for luminal procedures (. Read More

Initial clinical experience of a steerable access device for EUS-guided biliary drainage.

Gastrointest Endosc 2020 01 10;91(1):178-184. Epub 2019 Aug 10.

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, Baltimore, Maryland, USA.

Background And Aims: EUS-guided biliary drainage (EUS-BD) has been used as a rescue procedure after failed endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERC), and there is growing interest in EUS-BD as a primary therapy for distal malignant biliary obstruction. After EUS-guided needle puncture of an obstructed bile duct, directional control of wire advancement remains an area of need, potentially addressed by a new steerable EUS access system. The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of this novel steerable access system in patients undergoing EUS-BD after failed ERC. Read More
