Indications and Patient Selection for Colonic Stenting | August 2021
Release Date: Auagust 2021
Viewing Time:
1.5 hours

After the initial enthusiasm with the results of colorectal stenting as a bridge to colorectal resection in patients with malignant obstruction, some studies suggested that colorectal stenting could be associated with a shorter long-term survival caused by microperforation and peritoneal seeding of malignant cells. In addition, randomized clinical trials reported a low technical success rate of colorectal stenting. These data collaborated to wane the enthusiasm for the indication of colorectal stenting. Please join Fauze Maluf-Filho, member of the ASGE International Committee and Associate Editor for GIE, to discuss the actual indications, technique, and results of colorectal stenting. This new monthly series of global education will feature global experts to foster live discussion all over the world.

Optimal Viewing Experience on GI Leap
Although all browsers continually roll out new versions and updates, we currently recommend using Chrome for the best functionality when accessing GI Leap. Please note that Internet Explorer is not a supported browser. Follow these tips for better streaming and viewing of ASGE videos:

  1. Close other applications and browser tabs. This decreases the load on memory so your computer or other device can focus on streaming.
  2. Use a 5 GHz frequency if your router supports it. The common 2.4 GHz frequency is used by household appliances, so is more crowded. Avoiding it is like getting into the carpool lane on a freeway: smoother sailing.
  3. Use Ethernet instead of Wi-Fi if possible but GI LEAP is built with Wi-Fi in mind. 
  4. Monitor your internet connection. If your ISP has promised you 5MBps and you are getting only 1MBps, it's time for a phone call to your internet provider to sort that out.
