Endobiliary biopsy.

World J Gastrointest Endosc 2022 May;14(5):291-301

Unité d'Endoscopie Digestive, Hôpital Privé "Armand Brillard" 3/5 avenue Watteau, Nogent-sur-Marne 94130, France.

The differential diagnosis between benign and malignant biliary strictures is challenging and requires a multidisciplinary approach with the use of serum biomarkers, imaging techniques, and several modalities of endoscopic or percutaneous tissue sampling. The diagnosis of biliary strictures consists of laboratory markers, and invasive and non-invasive imaging examinations such as computed tomography (CT), contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography, and endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS). Nevertheless, invasive imaging modalities combined with tissue sampling are usually required to confirm the diagnosis of suspected malignant biliary strictures, while pathological diagnosis is mandatory to decide the optimal therapeutic strategy.

Percutaneous Biliary Interventions: Clinical Indications, Comparative Effectiveness, Technical Considerations, Complications, and Outcomes.

Gastrointest Endosc Clin N Am 2022 Jul 11;32(3):493-505. Epub 2022 May 11.

Division of Vascular and Interventional Radiology, Department of Radiology and Radiological Sciences, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, 1800 Orleans Street, Sheik Zayed Tower, Suite 7203, Baltimore, MD 21287, USA. Electronic address:

Percutaneous biliary interventions (PBIs) are commonly performed by interventional radiologists for a variety of clinical indications including biliary infections, strictures, leaks, and postoperative complications. PBIs have high technical and clinical success rates and are relatively safe when compared with more invasive surgical techniques. Percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography and percutaneous biliary drainage play an essential role in the management of common posthepatobiliary complications including biliary strictures and leaks.

When ERCP Fails: EUS-Guided Access to Biliary and Pancreatic Ducts.

Dig Dis Sci 2022 05 4;67(5):1649-1659. Epub 2022 Apr 4.

Division of Gastroenterology, Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, 1 RWJ Place, MEB 464, New Brunswick, NJ, 08901, USA.

Pancreaticobiliary (PB) endotherapy continues to progress in the era of therapeutic endosonography. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) remains the primary method for PB access in native and altered anatomy. In altered anatomy, PB access can be obtained via enteroscopy-assisted ERCP (e-ERCP) or laparoscopy-assisted ERCP; however, both approaches have significant limitations. Read More

Informed Consent for Endoscopic Biliary Drainage: Time for a New Paradigm.

Medicina (Kaunas) 2022 Feb 22;58(3). Epub 2022 Feb 22.

Digestive Endoscopy Unit, Department of Gastroenterology, Humanitas Clinical and Research Center, IRCCS, 20089 Rozzano, Milan, Italy.

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is considered as the first option in the management of malignant biliary obstruction. In case of ERCP failure, percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD) has been conventionally considered as the preferred rescue strategy. However, the use of endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) for biliary drainage (EUS-BD) has proved similarly high rates of technical success, when compared to PTBD. Read More

Spyglass percutaneous transhepatic lithotripsy of symptomatic recurrent lithiasis of the intrahepatic bile duct with distal stenosis.

Acta Biomed 2022 03 14;93(1):e2022020. Epub 2022 Mar 14.


In patients with symptomatic intrahepatic biliary lithiasis, the treatment is usually discussed by a multidisciplinary team. Although hepatectomy is considered as definitive treatment, when lobar atrophy is absent, endoscopic procedures are frequently proposed as first-line treatment due the low invasiveness and for sparing liver parenchyma. Percutaneous route is used in case of peroral approach failure. Read More

The Utility of Biliary Manometry in Assessing Early Catheter Removal After Percutaneous Balloon Dilatation of Hepaticojejunostomy Strictures.

Cureus 2022 Mar 2;14(3):e22761. Epub 2022 Mar 2.

Department of Surgical Gastroenterology, Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences, Lucknow, IND.

Background and objective Percutaneous balloon dilatation followed by long-term internal-external biliary catheter (IEBC) placement is the standard radiological management for postoperative hepaticojejunostomy (HJ) strictures. The treatment is considered successful when cholangiography shows a free flow of contrast across the anastomosis and the patient passes a "clinical test". However, these tests may not be suitable predictors of long-term successful treatment outcomes. Read More

J Clin Exp Hepatol 2022 Jan-Feb;12(1):129-134. Epub 2021 Mar 19.

SIMS Institute of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Transplantation, SRM Institutes for Medical Science, India.

Background: Single-session endoscopic stone extraction (ESE) and laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) has the best outcome in managing concomitant cholelithiasis (gallstone disease [GSD]) and choledocholithiasis (common bile duct stone [CBDS]). Traditional rendezvous technique with an intraoperative cholangiogram is associated with various technical (bowel distention, frozen Calot's triangle, limitation of intraoperative cholangiogram and so on) and logistical difficulties (lack of trained personnel and equipment for ESE in the operating room). We modified our approach of ESE-LC (tandem ESE-LC) to study the safety of the approach and overcome these disadvantages of the traditional rendezvous approach. Read More
