Background and Aims Therapeutic endoscopy plays a critical role in the management of upper GI (UGI) postsurgical leaks. Data are scarce regarding clinical success and safety. Our aim was to evaluate the effectiveness of endoscopic therapy for UGI postsurgical leaks and associated adverse events (AEs) and to identify factors associated with successful endoscopic therapy and AE occurrence. Methods This was a retrospective, multicenter, international study of all patients who underwent endoscopic t...

MALIGNANT DISEASE 1: ESGE recommends placement of partially or fully covered self-expandable metal stents (SEMSs) for palliation of malignant dysphagia over laser therapy, photodynamic therapy, and esophageal bypass.Strong recommendation, high quality evidence. 2 : ESGE recommends brachytherapy as a valid alternative, alone or in addition to stenting, in esophageal cancer patients with malignant dysphagia and expected longer life expectancy.Strong recommendation, high quality evidence. 3: ESGE r...

Abstract Background and Aims Recent data support a role for endoscopic radiofrequency ablation (RFA) in unresectable cholangiocarcinoma by improving stent patency and overall survival. Methods We describe 3 patients with inoperable cholangiocarcinoma with jaundice and cholestasis who were recommended palliative chemotherapy. They underwent endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography with single-operator cholangioscope and intraductal RFA. Results The procedures were performed without adverse ...

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infection caused by a novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) originated in China in December 2020 and declared pandemic by WHO. This coronavirus mainly spreads through the respiratory tract and enters cells through angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2). The clinical symptoms of COVID-19 patients include fever, cough, and fatigue. Gastrointestinal symptoms (diarrhea, anorexia, and vomiting) may be present in 50% of patients and may be associated with worst progn...

Background and study aims The impact of COVID-19 mitigation measures on stent placement procedures has not yet been reported. The aim of this study was to assess the impact of COVID-19 mitigation measures on upper stenting during SARS-CoV-2 outbreak, as well as the use of personal protection equipment (PPE) and risk of contamination for patients and staff. Patients and methods This was a multicenter, retrospective study of consecutive patients who underwent stent placement for upper gastrointest...

INTRODUCTION Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a technically demanding procedure with a high risk for adverse events (AEs). AIM Evaluate patient- and procedure-related risk factors for ERCP-related AEs and develop an online app to estimate risk of AEs. METHODS Retrospective study of 1491 consecutive patients who underwent 1991 ERCPs between 2012 and 2017. AEs definition and severity were classified according to most recent ESGE guidelines. Each variable was tested for asso...

Self-expandable metal stent (SEMS) placement for malignant dysphagia before preoperative neoadjuvant therapy (NT) is controversial. Evaluate SEMS placement impact on clinical and oncologic outcomes in patients with esophageal cancer who underwent surgery after NT. Retrospective study of esophageal cancer patients referred for esophagectomy after NT. A propensity score was built consisting of the conditional probability of having had a SEMS given a set of baseline variables. In the SEMS group, pa...
