Background and Aims: Endoscopic ultrasonography(EUS)-guided pancreatic interventions have gained increasing attention. Acute recurrent pancreatitis can occur due to pancreatic duct obstruction from any cause. Recently, EUS-guided pancreatic duct stent placement has been used to treat such patients when traditional ERCP fails or is not possible due to post-surgical anatomy. In these previous reports and case series the mean technical success rate was only about 80%.Furthermore, adverse events such as pancreatic duct leaks, stent migration, and pancreatitis commonly occurred. Thus, we developed a new single pigtail plastic stent designed for EUS-guided pancreatic duct drainage(EUS-PD)and used as first-line. The aim of this study is to retrospectively evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of newly designed plastic stent.
Twenty-two patients with acute recurrent pancreatitis due to main pancreatic duct stricture or stenotic pancreatojejunostomy underwent EUS-PD. EUS-PD were performed using a 19-gauge or 22-gauge fine-needle. After tract dilation, new tapered tip and fourfold-flanged single pigtail plastic stent(7Fr, total length: 20-cm, effective length: 15-cm, flanges: 4 with apertures, side holes: total 12 holes, distal straight site, 4 holes and pigtail site, 8 holes)was placed.
New plastic stent was placed successfully without procedural complication in all cases(22/22,100%). Treatment success rate was 100%(22/22). Self-limited abdominal pain was observed in 3 patients, bleeding in 1 patient 1 day postoperatively(IVR was needed), and mild pancreatitis in 1 patient, but there were no stent migration.
A newly dedicated plastic stent which appears to be feasible and effective for EUS-PD.
