YRIBERRY URENA, Simón  and  MONGE ZAPATA, Victor. Management Metallic Stent Biliar Obstruido in Pancreas Cancer: Stent Within Stent. Case Report and Review of Literature. Rev. gastroenterol. Perú [online]. 2007, vol.27, n.3, pp.303-306. ISSN 1022-5129.

Pancreatic cancer producing obstructive jaundice can be handled temporarily or permanently if it is inoperable with stents placed endoscopically by means of an endoscopic retrograde cholangio-pancreatography, or ERCP. These can be made of teflon plastic of relatively short duration (average 2 months) or permanent metallic ones. The metallic stents are made of non-covered metallic mesh that can be obstructed by the growth of the neoplasia and invasion of the lumen. We present the case of a patient with a metallic stent suffering from cholangitis due to tumoral growth. A salvaging procedure was performed.

Keywords : ERCP; pancreas cancer; obstructive jaundice; stent.
