- Laparoscopic Bypass for Inoperable Disease of the Pancreas. Fingerhut, Abe; Cudeville, Corinne // Seminars in Laparoscopic Surgery;Mar1996, Vol. 3 Issue 1, p10
Based on the literature and the authors' experience, the principal laparoscopic techniques of cholecystojejunostomy, choledochoenterostomy, and gastrojejunostomy for palliative treatment of pancreatic carcinoma are described.
- Gastro-pancreaticostomy using a tube stent as a less invasive palliative treatment for malignant obstructive pancreatitis. NINOMIYA, MIZUKI; SHIRABE, KEN; TAKETOMI, AKINOBU; NOZOE, TADAHIRO; MAEDA, TAKASHI; NAKASHIMA, HIDEAKI; MATSUKUMA, AKITO; EZAKI, TAKAHIRO; MAEHARA, YOSHIHIKO // Surgery Today;Jun2011, Vol. 41 Issue 6, p884
Surgical palliation of malignant obstructive pancreatitis poses a considerable burden to patients, especially those with extensive disease. We herein present a novel technique for performing gastro-pancreaticostomy using a tube stent as a less invasive palliative treatment for malignant...
- Peripancreatic pseudoaneurysms: a management-based classification system. Pang, Tony; Maher, Richard; Gananadha, Sivakumar; Hugh, Thomas; Samra, Jaswinder // Surgical Endoscopy;Jul2014, Vol. 28 Issue 7, p2027
Background: Peripancreatic pseudoaneurysms can arise in a number of different clinical settings but are associated mostly with pancreatitis and pancreatobiliary surgery. The aim of this study is to review the current literature and to propose a management classification system based on the...
- Resolution of Panniculitis after Placement of Pancreatic Duct Stent in Chronic Pancreatitis. Lambiase, Pier; Seery, John P.; Taylor-Robinson, Simon D.; Thompson, Jeremy N.; Hughes, J. Michael B.; Walters, Julian R. F. // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Sep1996, Vol. 91 Issue 9, p1835
The association of panniculitis and pancreatitis is well described. However, panniculitis remains a relatively uncommon manifestation of pancreatic inflammation. We report a case in which treatment of pancreatitis by the placement of a pancreatic stent led to simultaneous resolution of both the...
- Migration of biliary plastic stents: experience of a tertiary center. Arhan, Mehmet; Ödemiş, Bülent; Parlak, Erkan; Ertuğrul, İbrahim; Başar, Ömer // Surgical Endoscopy;Apr2009, Vol. 23 Issue 4, p769
Stent migration occurs in about 5â€“10% of patients undergoing biliary stenting. The aim of this study was to analyze the risk factors for stent migration in patients with benign and malignant strictures. We retrospectively analyzed records of 524 biliary plastic stent placement procedures....
- Application of a Loop-Type Laboratory Biofilm Reactor to the Evaluation of Biofilm for Some Metallic Materials and Polymers such as Urinary Stents and Catheters. Hideyuki Kanematsu; Hikonaru Kudara; Shun Kanesaki; Takeshi Kogo; Hajime Ikegai; Akiko Ogawa; Nobumitsu Hirai // Materials (1996-1944);Oct2016, Vol. 9 Issue 10, p1
A laboratory biofilm reactor (LBR) was modified to a new loop-type closed system in order to evaluate novel stents and catheter materials using 3D optical microscopy and Raman spectroscopy. Two metallic specimens, pure nickel and cupronickel (80% Cu-20% Ni), along with two polymers, silicone and...
- Biliary Endoprosthesis: A Prospective Analysis of Bacterial Colonization and Risk Factors for Sludge Formation. Schneider, Jochen; Hapfelmeier, Alexander; Fremd, Julia; Schenk, Philipp; Obermeier, Andreas; Burgkart, Rainer; Forkl, Stefanie; Feihl, Susanne; Wantia, Nina; Neu, Bruno; Bajbouj, Monther; von Delius, Stefan; Schmid, Roland M.; Algül, Hana; Weber, Andreas // PLoS ONE;Oct2014, Vol. 9 Issue 10, p1
Bacterial colonization of biliary stents is one of the driving forces behind sludge formation which may result in stent occlusion. Major focus of the study was to analyze the spectrum and number of microorganisms in relation to the indwelling time of stents and the risk factors for sludge...
