BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS Endoscopic ultrasound-guided choledochoduodenostomy (EUS-CDS) has gained popularity as an alternative to percutaneous biliary drainage for patients in whom endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography has failed. There are no previous studies comparing EUS-CDS with endoscopic transpapillary stenting (ETS) as first-line treatment for distal malignant obstruction. The aim of this study was to compare the clinical efficacy and safety of EUS-CDS and ETS as first-line… CONTINUE READING
