Abstract

We describe the treatment of a stenosing lesion of the horizontal duodenum by means of a large-bore metallic stent inserted percutaneously in a patient with transhepatic biliary drainage. In the same session, we used an expandable metallic stent in the biliary tree to relieve jaundice. We recommend the transhepatic approach for duodenal metallic stent insertion in patients with percutaneous biliary drainage.
