ABSTRACT null null Background and Aims null Electrocautery-tip lumen-apposing metal stents (EC-LAMSs) have extended the indications of therapeutic EUS. We aimed to retrospectively evaluate safety, technical and clinical success of a newly developed EC-LAMS for various EUS-guided procedures. null null null Methods null We included and retrospectively analyzed consecutive patients at 8 tertiary care referral centers who had undergone EUS interventional procedures using the Hot-Spaxus (Taewoong Med...

OBJECTIVES Studies on endoscopic treatment of non-anastomotic biliary strictures (NABS) following orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) are scanty and with a short follow-up. The long-term results of endoscopic treatment with plastic stents of NABS following OLT were analyzed. METHODS Retrospective analysis of consecutive enrolled patients who underwent endoscopic treatment for NABS after OLT between 1997 and 2015. Endoscopic treatment success was defined as stricture resolution, without recurr...

Background and objectives null Pancreatic cystic lesions (PCLs) are frequent incidental findings on cross-sectional imaging and represent a diagnostic challenge as different kinds of PCLs harbor a dissimilar risk of malignancy. Two diagnostic tools have recently been developed and introduced: through-the-needle biopsy (TTNB) and needle-based confocal laser endomicroscopy (nCLE). The aim of this meta-analysis was to compare the diagnostic yield and performance, as well as the safety profile of th...

ABSTRACT null null Background and aims null Benefit of rapid on-site evaluation (ROSE) on diagnostic accuracy of endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle biopsy (EUS-FNB) has never been evaluated in a randomized study. This trial aimed to test the hypothesis that in solid pancreatic lesions (SPLs), diagnostic accuracy of EUS-FNB without ROSE was not inferior to that of EUS-FNB with ROSE. null null null Methods null Non-inferiority study (non-inferiority margin 5%) conducted at 14 centers in eigh...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS In the management of gastric outlet obstruction (GOO), EUS-guided gastroenterostomy (EUS-GE) seems safe and more effective than enteral stent placement. However, comparisons with laparoscopic gastroenterostomy (L-GE) are scarce. Our aim was to perform a propensity score-matched comparison between EUS-GE and L-GE. METHODS An international, multicenter, retrospective analysis was performed of consecutive EUS-GE and L-GE procedures in 3 academic centers (Jan 2015 to May 2020), u...
