Abstract

in English, German

Treatment of adenoma of the major duodenal papilla is often a challenge for the endoscopist. We report about two patients with papillary adenoma who had residual adenoma in the center of the ductus hepatocholedochus papillary region after endoscopic papillectomy. Due to missing possibility of further endoscopic resection we carried out endobiliary radiofrequency ablation instead of surgical treatment. In follow-up examination, there where no macroscopic or histological relapse, therefore endobiliary radiofrequency ablation needs to be discussed as an alternative to surgical therapy option.
