Gastric Outlet obstruction— duodenal SEMS placement

Gastric outlet obstruction (GOO) is a medical problem where the passage of gastric contents into the duodenum is hindered, leading to symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, early satiety, and weight loss. When surgical intervention is not feasible, or a malignancy causes the obstruction, one of the palliative treatments available is the placement of a duodenal self-expanding metal stent (SEMS).
