Presentations & Programs
Dr. Devereaux presents several case reports reporting on the key indications for cholangioscopy and how its use impacted patient care, procedural success and costs. In Part 2, he presents some of the recent clinical data being reported on cholangioscopy.
Prof. Neuhaus presents very early clinical data and case studies using the SpyGlass DS System at a symposium held during DDW 2015.
A 53-year-old male was referred for recurrent biliary obstruction. His medical history included colon cancer, diagnosed in 2014, with hepatic and mediastinal metastases despite chemotherapy.
Patient History The patient was a 75 year old woman diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma in the CBD 1-1/2 years prior.
Video Case Studies
Common Bile Duct Stone Case Studies
A 68-year-old male developed obstructive jaundice due to a tightly impacted stone in the common bile duct. Electrohydraulic lithotripsy (EHL) is performed with a probe through a cholangioscope to fracture the stone.
Cystic Duct Stone/Mirizzi Syndrome Case Studies
A 57-year-old man presented to a referring hospital with right upper quadrant pain, fever and elevated liver chemistries.
A 72-year-old-female presented with post-laparoscopic cholecystectomy and underwent 2 failed ERCPs to remove a large biliary stone. A 10fr stent was placed and she returned 2 months later for an ERCP using cholangioscopy with EHL lithotripsy.
A 58-year-old patient underwent 2 failed ERCP procedures in an attempt to remove an obstructing 8mm stone. The patient was then referred for an ERCP with cholangioscopy using the SpyGlass™ DS System.
Biliary Stricture Case Studies
Cholangioscopy is used to assess an indeterminant bile duct stricture. Targeted biopsies demonstrate infiltrating carcinoma suggestive of gallbladder origin.
In this case, Dr. Sharma and Dr. Lowe use the SpyGlass™ DS System to evaluate local invasion of gallbladder cancer into the cystic duct stump and the common bile duct.
Written Case Studies & Articles
