BACKGROUND AND AIMS In high-risk surgical patients, the treatment of choice of acute cholecystitis is percutaneous transhepatic gallbladder drainage (PTGBD). Recently, a novel endoscopic device containing a lumen-apposing metal stent with an electrocautery (ECE-LAMS) on the tip has been developed. METHODS High-risk surgical patients with acute cholecystitis who underwent EUS-guided gallbladder drainage (EUS-GBD) with the novel device were retrospectively retrieved from 7 tertiary care… CONTINUE READING
