Abstract

Endoscopic enteral self-expandable metal stent (SEMS) placement is a useful alternative treatment option for malignant afferent limb syndrome (ALS). We investigated the safety, efficacy, and follow-up results of enteral SEMS placement using a single-balloon enteroscope for the treatment of malignant ALS.
