A preliminary study of a modified, nonflared, short fully covered metal stent for refractory benign pancreatic duct strictures (with videos) (Nonflared FCSEMS for refractory pancreatic duct strictures)

In this study, we conducted a prospective long-term follow-up evaluation of the efficacy of the novel FCSEMS for the treatment of refractory benign pancreatic duct strictures in patients with CP.

In conclusion, indications for EUS-PTS are limited, as is the evidence of its viability, due to the scarcity of expert operators. Despite improvements made to various devices, EUS-PTS remains technically challenging. Therefore, a long-term, large-scale, multicenter study is required to establish this technique as a viable alternative drainage method. PMID: 31771320 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
