Abstract

Metallic stents are effective in relieving colorectal obstruction in more than 80% of cases. Self expanding metallic stents allow for decompression of the proximal colon and preoperative bowel cleansing. Hence, emergent surgery for large bowel obstruction with its associated high morbidity and mortality might be avoided. Endoscopic laser photoablation and stent placement may successfully palliate inoperable colorectal cancer patients by maintaining luminal patency and avoiding the need for a colostomy. Major complications associated with metallic stents include pressure necrosis, perforation, bleeding and migration. The effectiveness of expandable metallic stents in obstructive colorectal carcinoma is critically reviewed. The authors present a concise review of the effectiveness of endoscopic laser photoablation and expandable metal stent placement.
