Advances in Therapeutic Endoscopic Ultrasound: Expanded Options in Pancreatitis, Cholecystitis and More

Friday, November 5, 2021
Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) was initially developed as a diagnostic tool in the 1980s. In 2012, the field of therapeutic EUS expanded significantly due to the introduction of lumen apposing metal stent (LAMS) technology. LAMS are unique dumbbell-shaped metal stents that are deployed under EUS guidance (see image). They enable gastroenterologists with training in interventional endoscopy to connect two lumens and create new routes for drainage, bypasses, and more. Additionally, newer electrocautery-enhanced (or “hot”) devices have transformed LAMS deployment into a single step process, simplifying these new procedures and increasing the margin of safety.
