Summary of "Impact of infected stent removal on recurrent cholangitis with time-to-event analysis."

The optimal approach at treating infected biliary stents at the time of cholangitis remains unknown. This study aims to compare the efficacy of stent exchange versus stent sweeping/stent-in-stent approaches at treating cholangitis.
