McCabe has a particular interest in diagnosing, staging and endoscopic therapies for GI oncology patients and is passionate about treating pancreatobiliary disease as he specializes in ERCP, diagnostic/therapeutic EUS, cholangioscopy
and endoscopic mucosal resection.
The strategies for minimally invasive treatment for intrahepatic and extrahepatic bile duct stones can be summarized as follows: (1) For intrahepatic bile duct stones, according to the distribution of the stones, stenosis of the biliary tract, or whether hepatic fibrosis and atrophy are combined, laparoscopic liver resection, laparoscopic common bile duct exploration (LCBDE), or percutaneous transhepatic cholangioscopy
may be chosen.

Considering patient's comorbidity and the potential risks secondary to surgery, we planned to fragment the stone using a holmium laser system under direct peroral cholangioscopy
using direct visualization and electrohydraulic lithotripsy (EHL) offers an alternative management solution which gives a single-operator the ability to detect strictures and remove large stones in the pancreaticobiliary system which are otherwise not amenable to endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP).
Boston Scientific Corp.'s SpyGlass DS Direct Visualization System is a digital, disposable endoscope for diagnostic and therapeutic cholangioscopy
Food and Drug Administration 510(k) clearance of its next-generation SpyGlass DS Direct Visualization System used for cholangioscopy
and pancreatoscopy procedures.
(NYSE: BSX) has received 510(k) clearance and the first cases of the SpyGlass DS Direct Visualization System used for cholangioscopy
and pancreatoscopy procedures, the company said on Thursday.
Biliary clearance was facilitated by cholangioscopy
via the afferent bowel loop.
