EUS-guided drainage of pancreatic fluid collections using a novel lumen- apposing metal stent on an electrocautery-enhanced delivery system: a large retrospective study, GIE 2015; 1-8.
13 centres (Emanuele Rinninella, Rastislav Kunda, Markus Dollhopf, Andres Sanchez-Yague, Uwe Will, Ilaria Tarantino, Joan Gornals Soler, Sebastian Ullrich, Alexander Meining, Josè Miguel Esteban, Thomas Enz, Geoffroy Vanbiervliet, Frank Vleggaar, Fabia Attili, Alberto Larghi)
Results/Conclusion: Ninety-three patients with PFCs (80% with complex collections) underwent drainage using the study device. Penetration of the PFC was accomplished directly with the study device in 74.2% of patients, and successful stent placement was accomplished in all but 1 patient, mostly without fluoroscopic assistance. Direct endoscopic necrosectomy (DEN) was carried out in 31 of 52 cases (59.6%) of walled-off necrosis and in 2 of 4 cases (50%) of acute peripancreatic fluid collection. Complete resolution of the PFC was obtained in 86 cases (92.5%), with no recurrence during follow-up.EUS-guided drainage with the electrocautery-enhanced delivery system is a safe, easy to perform, and a highly effective minimally invasive treatment modality for PFCs.
