DOCTORAL DISSERTATION

Expandable stents for esophageal and biliary strictures

and development of an electrolytic stent.

Clinical and experimental studies

Wojciech Cwikiel MD

University of Lund, September 9,1993.

Coden: LUMEDW/MEXL-1026)/1993

Abstract: Self expandable metallic stents were used for rekanalization of obstructed bile ducts in 16 patients. A good initial effect on jaundice was achieved. Dysfunction of the stents during long-term treatment was mainly caused by overgrowth or ingrowth of tumor. To prevent ingrowth of tumor a stent generating direct electric current was developed and tested in vitro and in an experimental model in rats. The experiments confirm that such an "electrolytic" stent can inhibit ingrowth of tumor.

Twelve patients with malignant esophageal strictures were treated by combination of endoscopic laser therapy and insertion of Wallstents. Expanded Walstents were relatively short, and placement of several stents was required. A self-expanding nitinol stent for treatment of esophageal strictures was developed and used in treatment of another 40 patients with malignant strictures and in five patients with benign strictures. The expansive forces of the nitinol stents were able to dilate malignant as well as benign strictures to the maximal stent diameter, and the stent had sufficient length in most cases. A good palliative effect on dysphagia was achieved in all the treated patients, and there were no serious stent-related complications. Stents occluded by ingrowth of tumor were easy recanalized by endoscopic laser therapy.The reaction of the normal esophageal wall on the self-expanding nitinol stents was studied in an experimental model. This study demonstrated an inflammatory reaction in the esophageal wall following stent insertion, with progressive fibrosis and a tendency to development of stenoses at the stent edges. Similar changes appeared also in patients with benign esophageal strictures.

Self-expanding stents may be recommended for palliative treatment of patients with malignant strictures. In patients with benign strictures, stent insertion may be advisable only in selected cases or as a preoperative nutritional support.
