BACKGROUND Metal stents have been reported as an effective alternative to surgery for the palliation of patients with colorectal neoplastic obstruction. Because most of the published series describe the use of uncovered stents, the purpose of our study was to prospectively evaluate the effectiveness, feasibility, safety, and outcome of covered stents for the palliative treatment of malignant colorectal strictures. METHODS Sixteen patients with advanced distal colorectal cancer underwent… Expand
Self-expandable metallic stent placement as palliative treatment of obstructed colorectal carcinoma
TLDR
Stent placement can be considered safe and effective palliation for unresectable colorectal cancer with technical modification of an esophageal stent, and this procedure is now feasible. Expand

TLDR
An improvement in stent design and well-scheduled follow-up are needed in order to prevent such complications and stent placement is safe and effective. Expand
Radiologic placement of uncovered stents for the treatment of malignant colorectal obstruction.
TLDR
The radiologic placement of uncovered stents for the treatment of malignant colorectal obstruction is feasible and safe and provides acceptable clinical results not only for preoperative decompression but also for palliative cases, especially in left-sided colonic obstructions. Expand
Ten-year retrospective study of treatment of malignant colonic obstructions with self-expandable stents.
TLDR
Treatment of colonic obstruction with stents requires a long time in the interventional room and considerable radiation dose, Nevertheless, the clinical benefits and improvement in quality of life justify the radiation risk. Expand
Colorectal stenting for colonic obstruction: the indications, complications, effectiveness and outcome--5 year review.
TLDR
Colorectal stenting when technically successful is an effective procedure for both preoperative and palliative decompression of colonic obstruction. Expand
Comparison of uncovered stent with covered stent for treatment of malignant colorectal obstruction.
TLDR
There are no advantages of covered stents over uncovered stents during the follow-up period in the palliative purpose, and Insertion of either an uncovered or covered stent is similarly an effective treatment modality of malignant colorectal obstruction for preoperative purposes. Expand
Endoscopic treatment of acute colorectal obstruction with self-expandable metallic stents
TLDR
Stenting was a useful treatment of acute malignant colonic obstruction and used as a definitive palliative treatment, avoiding surgery in those patients with a very widely metastatic disease or who cannot undergo operation because of comorbid underlying conditions. Expand
Colorectal Stenting for Malignant and Benign Disease: Outcomes in Colorectal Stenting
TLDR
Stent insertion provided an effective outcome in patients with malignant colonic obstruction as a palliative and preoperative therapy and should be considered as a first-line treatment for malignant strictures and as a potential therapy for selected benign strictures. Expand
Palliation for Advanced Malignant Colorectal Obstruction by Self-Expanding Metallic Stents: Prospective Evaluation of Outcomes
TLDR
Self-expanding metallic stents are highly effective in relieving malignant colorectal obstruction and palliation can be achieved in the majority of the patients without a stoma, according to this study. Expand
Interventional Management of Malignant Colorectal Obstruction: Use of Covered and Uncovered Stents
TLDR
Self-expanding metallic stents are effective for relieving malignant colorectal obstruction and the rate of complications is lower in the uncovered stent group than in the coveredStent group. Expand

Expandable metal stents for the treatment of colonic obstruction: techniques and outcomes.
TLDR
Expandable metal stents are a feasible, effective adjunct and alternative to surgery for acute colorectal obstruction and overall effectiveness in relieving obstruction was 85% (palliative 82%, preoperative 90%). Expand
Application of rectal stents for palliation of obstructing rectosigmoid cancer
TLDR
Endoscopic stent implantation seems to be a safe and efficient palliative approach to selected patients with obstructing rectal cancer and currently, self-expanding coil stents are superior to other devices because of lower risk of dislocation and tumor ingrowth. Expand

TLDR
Metallic stent placement to relieve acute colonic obstruction secondary to colorectal carcinoma is a safe therapeutic alternative, allowing single-stage surgery in suitable cases and in patients who are not surgical candidates it is an adequate palliative option. Expand

TLDR
Stenting for rectal carcinoma is technically feasible and safe, and probably reduces the number of laser sessions required, however, better materials are required. Expand

TLDR
Flexible stents effectively relieved acute colonic obstruction secondary to malignant rectosigmoid neoplasm and provided palliative decompression in cases of inoperable or disseminated disease. Expand

TLDR
The case of a 78-year-old woman with malignant biliary stenosis, who was treated with self-expanding Gianturco metal stents placed in the distal common bile duct and, nine months later,placed in the descending duodenum, appears to be effective for the palliative treatment of malignant duodenal stenosis.
