Exploration de la région ampullaire par mini sondes endo-canalaires
Exploration of duodenal papillary region by intraductal ultrasonography
To our knowledge, the results of the ID US were reported in the duodenal papillary region only for adenomas and cancers. In ampullomas, the interest of ID US is high due to its impact on therapeutic approach. Indeed, IDUS may select patients for whom endoscopic ampullectomy with a curative goal can be proposed.
The impact of the IDUS in the other ampullary diseases such as stones, Oddi’s dysfunction, rare tumors has not been described and remains to estimate.
