"Pharmacological prophylaxis versus pancreatic duct stenting plus pharmacological prophylaxis for prevention of post-ERCP pancreatitis in high risk patients: a randomized trial"

by Rasoul Sotoudehmanesh et al.

Fig. 2 Differences (95% confidence intervals) in the rates of post-endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography pancreatitis (PEP) in high risk patients receiving pharmacological prophylaxis with and without pancreatic duct (PD) stenting (n = 414). CI, confidence interval; RD, risk difference.

"Endoscopic ultrasound-guided transmural approach versus ERCPguided transpapillary approach for primary decompression of malignant biliary obstruction: a meta-analysis"

by Kirles Bishay et al.

Fig. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatoscopy (a –c) and endoscopic ultrasound (d –f) approaches to biliary drainage. a Cholangiogram showing opacification of the bile duct and a distal biliary stricture. b Cholangiogram showing metal stent placement across the stricture with biliary decompression. c Endoscopic view of a portion of the deployed metal stent in the duodenum. d Sonographic view of the dilated bile duct from the duodenal bulb. e Lumen-apposing metal stent deployed into the bile duct through the duodenal bulb. f Endoscopic view of a portion of the deployed stent in the duodenum.

"Long-term follow-up after multiple plastic stenting for refractory pancreatic duct strictures in chronic pancreatitis"

 by Andrea Tringali et al.

 Fig. 1 Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography images of treatment with multiple pancreatic plastic stents. a Main pancreatic duct stricture refractory to a single plastic stent. b Balloon dilation (6mm) of the stricture. c Insertion of four pancreatic plastic stents. d Stricture resolution after removal of multiple plastic stents.

"Stones, strictures, and chronic pancreatitis"

 by Jacques Devière et al.

 Fig. 1 Endoscopic therapy of pancreatic disorders. a The most common indications to intervene the pancreas endoscopically are strictures, leaks and stones. Pancreatic stents are mostly of polyethylene, but there are also varieties made of poylurethane or plytetrafluoroethylene (Teflon). Illustration: Michal Rössler.
