Endoscopic Ultrasound-guided Gastroenterostomy: A Promising Alternative to Surgery

Introduction Surgical gastroenterostomy has been the standard palliative therapy for gastric outlet obstruction (GOO) due to malignant and benign diseases and postoperative pancreati cobiliar y complications. Endoscopic intervention is an alternative treatment option for GOO, which is divided into two approaches – the placement of enteric self-expanding metal stents (SEMS) across the stricture and endoscopic ultrasound-guided gastroenterostomy (EUS-GE) using metal stents. Enteric SEMS placement may be complicated due to the recurrent obstruction caused by

Ultrasound elastography can detect placental tissue abnormalities

Introduction When ultrasound elastography was first clinically applied for the evaluation of disease, it was used to differentiate cancer tissue from surrounding normal tissue according to stiffness. 1 , 2 , 3 Since the elasticity of tissues and organs can be evaluated objectively, even in inaccessible parts of the living body 4 , 5 , this modality has been applied in the clinical diagnosis of breast cancer. 6 Recently, elastography has been found to be useful for the evaluation of pathological changes in noncancerous tissues. For example, the stiffness
