Forward-viewing versus oblique-viewing echoendoscopes in transluminal drainage of pancreatic fluid collections: a multicenter, randomized, controlled trial.


BACKGROUND EUS-guided drainage of pancreatic fluid collections (PFCs) is commonly performed with oblique-viewing echoendoscopes. However, accessing the PFC under an oblique angle can make drainage difficult. These difficulties might be overcome by using a forward-viewing echoendoscope. OBJECTIVE To compare endoscopic PFC drainage with an oblique-viewing… (More)
