Removal of Malfunctioning Biliary Plastic Stent Via Percutaneous Transhepatic Cholangiography.
J Bahria Uni Med Dental Coll Jan ;7(1):58-9.
Obstructive jaundice is one of the most common presentations of pancreatic cancer. Often the patients present when curative surgical resection is not possible due to late diagnosis. In these cases, palliation is the only option available. However in such cases, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is not possible because of surrounding extensive inflammation. This study describes percutaneous transhepatic external biliary drain placement in patients with cancer of pancreatic head when surgical removal is not possible. Keywords: Malignant obstruction, Pancreatic cancer, ERCP, Transhepatic cholangiopancreatography
