Background and Aims: Recently, EUS-guided pancreatic duct drainage (EUS-PD) has been used for patients in
whom endoscopic retrograde pancreatography (ERP) has failed. Stent-related adverse events such as stent migrations,
failures in stent placement, or pancreatic fluid leakages have been of concern in transmural plastic stenting
procedures. The aim of this study is to evaluate the feasibility and safety of EUS-PD with a fully covered selfexpandable
metal stent (FCSEMS) for patients with obstructive pancreatitis who failed ERP.
