Case description

Cholecystectomy is contraindicated in patients with comorbidities or unresectable cancer. Percutaneous transhepatic gallbladder drainage (PTGBD) is typically offered with response rates ranging from 56% to 100%, but has several risks such as bleeding, pneumothorax, pneumoperitoneum, bile leak, and/or catheter migration. Endoscopic transpapillary gallbladder drainage (ETGD) and endoscopic ultrasound-guided transmural gallbladder drainage (EUS-GBD) are alternative endoscopic modalities that have a technical feasibility, efficacy and safety profile comparable with PTGBD. (Reference: DOI: 10.1111/den.12163).
