PURPOSE To report initial clinical experience with a nonsurgical method for sutureless biliary-enteric anastomosis with use of two magnetic elements that potentially overcomes the disadvantages of other palliative methods. MATERIALS AND METHODS The technique involves percutaneous transhepatic insertion of one magnet into the bile duct under fluoroscopic guidance and insertion of a second magnet endoscopically into the duodenum. The adherence of the two magnets creates ischemic necrosis of… CONTINUE READING
