EUS Staging Accuracy of Periampullary Neoplasms: a Retrospective Review
- Patients will be identified retrospectively through an existing Indiana University
Medical Center EUS database and pathology database.
- Patients with and without biliary stents will be included.
- Patients that were suspected to have ampullary tumors but who were ultimately found
to have a normal ampulla will be excluded.
Type of Study:
Time Perspective: Retrospective
The presence of a biliary stent decreases EUS staging accuracy due to the intervening shadow artifacts
