Hae Won Yoo et al. A novel electrocautery-enhanced delivery system for one-step endoscopic ultrasound-guided drainage of the gallbladder and bile duct using a lumen-apposing metal stent: a feasibility study

The effectiveness and safety of a newly developed electrocautery-enhanced delivery system for a lumen-apposing metal stent (EC-LAMS) was assessed in this pilot study for one-step endoscopic ultrasound-guided gallbladder drain„age or choledochoduodenostomy. It remains to be seen how this novel system compares with the already available alternative EC-LAMS system.
