212 Endoscopic Ultrasound-Guided Transmural Gallbladder Drainage Using Lumen-Apposing Metal Stents Versus Endoscopic Transpapillary Drainage Versus Percutaneous Cholecystostomy for Gallbladder Drainage in High-Risk Surgical Patients With Acute Cholecystitis: Clinical Outcomes and Success in an International, Multicenter, Comparative Trial

      Gallbladder decompression for the treatment of acute cholecystitis in high-risk surgical patients has been conducted via percutaneous cholecystostomy tube (PC) or endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography with transpapillary drainage (TP).
