2019 unpublished
KEYWORDS Cholecystolithotomy; endoscopic ultrasound; retrievable anchor; lumen apposing metal stent 2 Abstract Background Endoscopic ultrasound-guided gallbladder drainage (EUS-GBD) is gradually emerging as an option among patients with cholecystitis. A stent-bridged endoscopic intervention in the gallbladder (GB) was further introduced. The aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness and safety of the electrocautery-enhanced delivery of a lumen apposing metal stent (ECE-LAMS) and this

Method We retrospectively reviewed consecutive patients undergoing EUS-guided transmural cholecystoscopic therapy. The main outcome measures for the EUS-GBD procedure were technical success and adverse events, which were also compared between the guided assisted group and the RA-assisted group. The main outcome measures for transmural cholecystoscopy after EUS-GBD were the stent indwelling time, clinical success, and adverse events. Results A total of 24 (15 female) patients with gallstones received transluminal cholecystolithotomy. The mean age of the patients was 36.08±13.69 years. The success rate of the anchor-assisted group was higher than that of the guidewire-assisted group
