Abstract

Abstract: Malignant small bowel obstruction is a common and distressing complication in advanced cancer patients. Recently, stent placement was reported to be a safe and effective alternative treatment. However, there are only a few case reports associated with stent placement in malignant jejunal obstruction. Furthermore, most patients had a history of gastrectomy before stent placement, which shortens the catheterization pathway. In our case series, we present five cases of malignant proximal jejunal obstruction in a non-surgically altered stomach in the management of fluoroscopy-guided self-expandable metallic stent placement and discuss the interventional management and clinical outcomes. Level of Evidence: Level 4, Case Series.
