abstract

  • The Olympus JFB fiber-duodenoscope has been used in sixty sedated hospital patients with undiagnosed persistent jaundice, recurrent biliary-tract symptoms, or suspected pancreatic disease. The descending duodenum was visualised in all patients; the papilla of Vater was cannulated under direct vision in forty-four patients (73%) and retrograde radiographs were obtained of biliary and pancreatic duct systems. This new diagnostic technique is a welcome advance in a difficult clinical area. © 1972.
