BACKGROUND Plastic stents are routinely placed in the pancreaticobiliary system to facilitate drainage. A second endoscopy is often required for stent removal. We have developed magnetic pancreaticobiliary stents that can be removed by using an external hand-held magnet, thereby obviating the need for a second endoscopy. OBJECTIVE To develop and test magnetic pancreaticobiliary stents and retrieval system in ex-vivo and in-vivo porcine models. SETTING Animal laboratory. DESIGN Benchtop… CONTINUE READING
