In this thesis we focussed our research on stent placement throughout the GI tract. In search for ideal stents for treatment of malignant oesophageal stenosis and gastric outlet obstruction we evaluated new stent designs in prospective cohort studies. Smaller research projects mainly aimed to investigate safety and feasibility of new treatment modalities for relatively new indications in the upper GI tract. Finally retrospective cohort and comparative studies aimed to provide insight into the benefits and pitfalls of colonic stent placement as treatment for acute malignant colonic obstruction.
