The primary goal of this study was to develop descriptive image interpretation criteria and a classification of endoscopic ultrasound-confocal microscopy (EUS-CM) findings in pancreatic masses and lymph nodes through a review of prospectively obtained EUS-CM videos from proven malignant and benign cases, and to propose diagnostic criteria for predicting(More)
BACKGROUND Although the prevalence of esophageal cancer increases in elderly patients, its clinical history and outcome after treatment remain poorly described. METHODS Between January 2001 and December 2011, 58 patients (pts) older than 75 years received 3D-conformal radiotherapy (mean dose 51 Gy) in two French cancer centers. 47/58 (82%) patients(More)
The echoendoscopic biliary drainage is an option to treat obstructive jaundices when endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) drainage fails. These procedures compose alternative methods to the side of surgery and percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage, and it was only possible by the continuous development and improvement of echoendoscopes(More)
Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a curative option for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), the most common primary malignancy of the liver. This bicentric retrospective study includes 46 patients admitted for their first percutaneous RFA for HCC. Sixty-three nodules were treated, with an average size of 32.5 mm. Our study confirms the efficiency of this(More)
Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is a disease with a great heterogeneity in the response to treatments. To improve the responsiveness to treatments there are two different approaches, the first one consist to develop new and more efficient drugs that intent to cure all patients and the second one is to use already-approved drugs, alone or in(More)
One of the most difficult biliary drainages is the recurrence and stenosis on afferent loop after surgery. We report an original case of hepaticogastrostomy (HGE) in a patient who had malignant stenosis of afferent loop after cephalic duodenopancreatectomy (CDP). After failure of the gastrointestinal stent, two metal self-expandable stents were placed by(More)
BACKGROUND Biliary drainage guided by echo-endoscopy (EUS) is a recent technique but expanding more and more in addition of retrograde and percutaneous approaches. METHODS Seventy-three hepaticogastrostomy (HG) were carried out from 2000 to 2013. After exclusion of patients included in a randomized prospective study, data from 60 patients were(More)
INTRODUCTION Biliary obstruction is preferentially managed by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). However, after ERCP failed, alternatives include percutaneous transhepatic drainage, surgery and more recently, endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS)-guided hepaticogastrostomy. The limitation of this technique is that the drainage is restricted(More)
INTRODUCTION Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS)-guided fine-needle aspiration (FNA) have a better accuracy for the detection of pancreatic tumors compared with others images modalities. We assessed if the image criteria of elastography and contrast harmonic echo-endoscopic ultrasound could help in choosing the appropriate FNA-needle in the evaluation of focal(More)
