Therapeutic EUS encompasses different procedures. In this review, we will illustrate our technique of performing EUS-guided biliary drainage (EUS-BD) and EUS-guided gastroenterostomy (EUS-GE). Other therapeutic EUS procedures, such as drainage of pancreatic fluid collections, pancreatic duct drainage, and gallbladder drainage, will not be covered in this article.
