BACKGROUND Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and biliary stenting fails in 5-10% patients of malignant biliary obstruction because papilla is inaccessible. Percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD) is an accepted alternative. Endosonography-guided biliary drainage (EUS-BD) has been described recently. AIM To compare success rates and complications of EUS-BD and PTBD internal stenting. METHODS This retrospective study included failed ERCP in inoperable malignant… CONTINUE READING
