Abstract

This case report shows an effective esophageal stent placement via retrograde (transgastric) approach under fluoroscopic guidance in the interventional radiology suite. This alternative can be evaluated and offered to patients that suffer from a firm esophageal occlusion before a major procedure such as surgery can be considered. Thus, decreasing major surgery complications and improving the quality of life.
