Aims: This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of stenting with a flexible braided self-expandable metal stent (SEMS) for unresectable malignant gastric outlet obstruction (GOO). Methods: Palliative stenting was prospectively carried out at seven university hospitals between October 2017 and August 2020. All procedures were performed using a flexible branded SEMS of the same brand. The primary endpoint was clinical success rate at 7 days after stenting. Secondary endpoints were procedural success rate, adverse events, recurrent gastric outlet obstruction (RGOO), and patient survival time. Results: Sixty patients were enrolled. The procedural and clinical success rates were 100% and 90%, respectively. RGOO occurred in 15 cases (25%). Adverse events other than RGOO were found in seven cases (12%). The 50% survival time was 75.5 days (range: 52–97 days). Median expansion rates at 1, 3, and 7 days after stenting were 55%, 65%, and 75%, respectively. Conclusions: A flexible braided stent woven with relatively thin wires was used for malignant GOO. Despite a gradual expansion with slightly lower expansile force, the stent functioned sufficiently well and showed favorable results. Clinical Trials Registry ID: UMIN000029496.
