Anti-migration procedure at Maxcure Hospital saves 41-yr-old man
He was referred to Dr Surender Reddy, consultant, (gastroenterologist and hepatologist) at Maxcure Hospital, Madhapur here. Dr Reddy advised the patient to undergo CT-scan. The scan report showed two large psuedocysts in the abdominal region of 10 x 12 cms and another in the retro gastric region of 12 x 15 cms. Development of symptomatic pseudocysts after acute pancreatitis is a common occurrence, endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided transmural drainage has become the treatment of choice for symptomatic pseudocysts.
It was treated by Maxcure surgical team with a new advanced technique with endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) guided cystogastrostomy. A recently developed fully covered biliary metal stent with anti-migration system was opted for cystogastrostomy. The aim was to use a covered metal stent with anti-migration system to drain pseudocysts at single tertiary care centre. The patient recovered smoothly without any complications and avoided otherwise major surgeries. Now the patient is a happy soul with health recovering and getting back his appetite without any complications.
