This article is from Videosurgery and other Miniinvasive Techniques, volume 9.AbstractIntroduction: Acute low neoplasm ileus requires emergency surgery. Nowadays there are increased numbers of patients with comorbidities, which causes higher risk of intra- and postoperative complications. Aim: To evaluate the clinical usefulness of endoscopic self-expandable stent placement for malignant colorectal ileus. Material and methods: Twenty-one patients 8 women and 13 men, mean age 66.7 years, with low neoplasm obstruction, underwent endoscopic stenting of the stricture. This procedure was performed as a bridge to the surgery especially for high-risk patients. Eight of them had coagulation system impairment, 5 severe metabolic disorders, 4 circulatory insufficiency, 3 severe malnutrition and 1 patient undiagnosed synchronic rectal tumor. In 10 patients cancer was located in the sigmoid colon, in 7 in the rectum, in 2 in the ascending colon, and the transverse and ascending colon was involved in another 2 patients. Results: All 21 patients 100% underwent endoscopic stenting successfully. There were no complications after stent placement. The authors underline that placement of expandable metallic stents for patients with malignant colon obstruction with acute ileus is a safe and effective method. It gives an opportunity for quick balance of fluid, electrolyte, and the coagulation system and improvement of efficiency of the circulatory and respiratory system. Conclusions: Endoscopic treatment of ileus helps precisely estimate tumor advancement and gives the possibility of a single stage radical surgical procedure.
