Palliation of malignant dysphagia with a segmented self-expanding metal stent: A STROBE-compliant article

Medicine (Baltimore). 2021 Aug 27;100(34):e27052. doi: 10.1097/MD.0000000000027052.ABSTRACTSelf-expanding metal stents (SEMSs) in different geometric shapes are an established palliative treatment for malignant tumors of the esophagus. Mechanical properties and stent design have an impact on patient comfort, migration rate, and removability. SEMS with a segmented design (segSEMS) have recently become available on the market, promising new biomechanical properties for stent placement in benign and malignant esophageal diseases. In this study, we evaluated recurrent dysphagia, quality of life as well as technical success and complications for segmented SEMS-implantation in a retrospective study in palliative patients with dysphagia caused by malignant tumors of…
