Anchoring of self-expanding metal stents using the over-the-scope clip, and a technique for subsequent removal

Academic Article


  • Background and study aims: Standard clips do not consistently prevent the migration of covered self-expanding metal stents (SEMS). The aims of this study were to assess the efficacy and safety of the over-the-scope clip (OTSC) system for anchoring SEMS to the esophagus, and to evaluate a novel OTSC removal technique.
