The most appropriate endo-therapeutic approach to biliary anastomotic strictures is yet to be defined.

Recently, due to improvement of imaging modality, malignant tumor such as pancreatic or bile duct cancer can be detected at earlier stage. Therefore, the frequency of surgical treatment may be increas...
Biliary enteric anastomosis is a well-known biliary reconstruction method. Anastomosis stricture is one of the complications of this procedure that occurs in some patients over the long-term. We repor...
Biliary system paragangliomas are rare neuroendocrine tumors of embryonic neural crest origin. The majority is asymptomatic and incidentally found due to gallbladder functional disorders. Herein, we p...
The rate of preoperative biliary drainage for pancreaticoduodenectomy has been increasing despite most recent evidence that favors avoiding it. Only a few studies have focused on late surgical complic...
Detailed endoscopic findings of the bile duct mucosa have not been fully established. This fundamental ex vivo study assesses the relationship between magnified endoscopic findings and pathological fi...
The goal of this study is to evaluate the potential of comprehensive biliary Optical Frequency Domain Imaging (OFDI) for assessing common bile duct or common hepatic duct strictures, deter...
Biliary drainage is the mainstay of the palliative treatment in patients with inoperable malignant bile duct stricture. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is the corners...
Endoscopic insertion of plastic or metal stents in introhepatic bile duct under endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography is a well established treatment of malignant or benign biliar...
The purpose of the study is to determine the best management of bile duct narrowing (stricture) due to inoperable tumors. The bile duct is a tube that carries bile formed in the liver to t...
Prospective, randomized, multi-center study. Investigators will compare diagnostic yield of bile duct brushings, pediatric biopsy forceps biopsies and cholangioscopy-directed biopsies for ...
Non-invasive diagnostic technique for visualizing the PANCREATIC DUCTS and BILE DUCTS without the use of injected CONTRAST MEDIA or x-ray. MRI scans provide excellent sensitivity for duct dilatation, biliary stricture, and intraductal abnormalities.
The largest bile duct. It is formed by the junction of the CYSTIC DUCT and the COMMON HEPATIC DUCT.
Predominantly extrahepatic bile duct which is formed by the junction of the right and left hepatic ducts, which are predominantly intrahepatic, and, in turn, joins the cystic duct to form the common bile duct.
Diseases in any part of the ductal system of the BILIARY TRACT from the smallest BILE CANALICULI to the largest COMMON BILE DUCT.
Organic or functional motility disorder involving the SPHINCTER OF ODDI and associated with biliary COLIC. Pathological changes are most often seen in the COMMON BILE DUCT sphincter, and less commonly the PANCREATIC DUCT sphincter.
