Dr. Todd Baron from the United States demonstrates the placement of a stent to relieve obstruction due to carcinoma of the distal antrum
Dr. Todd Baron from the United States is demonstrating the placement of a stent to relieve obstruction due to carcinoma of the distal antrum. The 56 year old man has a poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma and needs palliative therapy. A guidewire was placed through a nasogastric tube and Dr. Baron has decided to place a stent over the transnasal guidewire (a procedure he has never done before) since the guidewire has already traversed the tumor and is at the ligament of Treitz. The stent was placed successfully under endoscopic surveillance. Following placement, contrast material is injected and flows freely through the stent into the duodenum. This stent has a low chance of migration, and will provide relief from malignant gastric outlet obstruction.
This procedure was performed At the Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Unit of São Paulo University Medical School by Dr. Todd Baron from the United States.
