Bouveret syndrome – endoscopic treatment of gastric outlet obstruction

Václav Kadlec, Josef Kubát, Vojtěch Mezera

Summary

In this case report, we present the benefits of current endoscopic methods in successful treatment of proximal biliary ileus. Gastroscopic examination allowed us to establish the diagnosis. Using lithotripsy, we broke up the concrement in duodenal bulb and extracted its partial segments. This procedure led to a solution of this condition.
