Endoscopic papillary large balloon dilation for large common bile duct stones.
TLDR
EPLBD would theoretically combine advantages of sphincterotomy and balloon dilation by increasing efficacy at stone extraction while minimizing complications of both EBS and EBD, and is a reasonable option for removal of large or difficult common bile duct stones.
Advances in the endoscopic management of common bile duct stones
TLDR
This Review focuses on advances in endoscopic approaches and techniques, with a special emphasis on management strategies for 'difficult' common bile duct stones.
Staging accuracy of ampullary tumors by endoscopic ultrasound: Meta‐analysis and systematic review
TLDR
The aim of the present review was to evaluate the accuracy of endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) in predicting depth of ampullary tumor invasion and regional lymph node status by carrying out a meta‐analysis of all relevant studies.
Advances in endoscopic management of biliary tract complications after liver transplantation
Biliary tract complications after liver transplantation (LT) most commonly include biliary leaks, strictures, and stone disease. Living donor recipients and donation after cardiac death recipients
Early (<4 Weeks) Versus Standard (≥ 4 Weeks) Endoscopically Centered Step‐Up Interventions for Necrotizing Pancreatitis
TLDR
When using an endoscopically centered step‐up strategy in necrotizing pancreatitis, early (<4 weeks) interventions were more often performed for infection and organ failure, with no increase in complications, similar improvement inorgan failure, slightly increased need for surgery, and relatively low mortality.
EUS-guided sutured gastropexy for transgastric ERCP (ESTER) in patients with Roux-en-Y gastric bypass: a novel, single-session, minimally invasive approach.
TLDR
EUS-assisted, fluoroscopically guided sutured gastropexy is a safe and effective method to obtain access into the excluded gastric remnant for same-session transgastric ERCP in patients with Roux-en-Y gastric bypass anatomy.
Endoscopic Interventions for Necrotizing Pancreatitis
TLDR
Given the inherent challenges and associated risks, endoscopic techniques for the management of necrotizing pancreatitis should be performed at specialized multidisciplinary centers by expert endoscopists well versed in the management.
