For performance of endoscopic ultrasound-guided biliary drainage (EUS-BD), such as with EUS-guided hepaticogastrostomy (EUS-HG) [1,2], the fistula must be dilated so that the stent delivery system can be inserted [3]. We demonstrate herein a simplified technique for performing EUS-BD with a novel fine-gauge balloon catheter (REN Biliary Dilation Catheter… CONTINUE READING
