Doctors use EUS guided choledochoduodenostomy for the first time in Andhra Pradesh

Doctors at KIMS ICON Hospital has given a new hope to cancer patients suffering from jaundice. Doctors have given a new treatment to a cancer patient suffering from jaundice by Department of Gastroenterology at KIMS ICON Hospital, Visakhapatnam. Jaundice can happen because of obstruction caused by tumors.

Usually a stent will be placed across these tumors into the bile duct to relieve jaundice. But in patients with severe block, these stents often cannot be placed and long tubes will be placed through the liver externally with a collecting bag outside or they have to undergo morbid surgeries. EUS-guided choledocoduodenostomy (EUS-CDS) is a new technique, established as an alternative biliary drainage method for biliary decompression in patients with biliary obstruction. This procedure was performed for the first time in Andhra Pradesh for a cancer patient Mr. Rama Krishna (Name changed)from Odissa, at KIMS ICON Hospitals, Vishakhapatnam.

Dr Chalapathi Rao Achanta, Chief Gastroenterologist, KIMS ICON Hospital said, “With newer advances in endoscopy, a new bypass can be created internally between the bile duct and intestine without need of any external pipes or surgery. Patient can walk home the next day at a lesser cost than surgery he added. Recently we have performed this procedure on a patient who had jaundice because of recurrence of cancer even after surgery. Using advanced technology called endoscopic ultrasound, a new bypass was created internally for this patient without any external scar or wound. Patient recovered well from jaundice and is having better quality of life now. This procedure is called EUS guided choledochoduodenostomy and is performed for the first time in Andhra Pradesh.”

“Thanks to the team here. I have a better quality of life with this procedure. I was terrified when they diagnosed jaundice on top of my cancer recurrence . They took the other technique and drained the biliary fluids. I am very thankful to KIMS ICON Hospitals,” said the patient who underwent the procedure.

    Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no backup.
    Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?
