Figure 3 One of the bridge-to-surgery cases using the newly developed Niti-S MD type stent. A and C: The patient was an 83-year-old man with peritoneal type 2 advanced colorectal cancer (arrowhead) in the transverse colon; B and D: Using a smaller caliber colonoscope, we placed a 22 mm × 8 cm stent (arrow); E: Abdominal radiograph 2 d later shows firmly expanded stent successfully decompressing the acute obstruction. Tight stenosis is seen, and the enhanced expansible force of this stent enables successful decompression.
