The efficacy of digital single-operator cholangioscopy and factors affecting its accuracy in the evaluation of indeterminate biliary stricture

Indeterminate biliary stricture remains a significant diagnostic challenge. The current method of ERCP with bile duct brush cytology has a substantial room for improvement. We aimed to determine the efficacy of a digital single operator cholangioscopy (DSOC) in evaluation of indeterminate biliary stricture.

ConclusionsAdverse events in cirrhotic patients undergoing endoscopy appeared to be similar with moderate sedation or MAC, and the frequency was the same for different types of procedures.

Conclusions Consistent with other published series, LA-ERCP yields excellent cannulation rates after RYGB. Successful treatment of pancreatic and Type 1 biliary SOD suggests that there is significant symptomatic benefit to treating this patient population. However, an overall complication rate of approximately 15 % with LAERCP leaves open the possibility for improvements in access techniques in post-RYGB patients.

We read with great interest the letter from Haseeb and colleagues1 about their experience (not published) with EUS-guided choledochoduodenostomy (EUS-CD) with uncovered self-expanding metal stents (uSEMSs). In recent years, EUS-guided biliary drainage (EUS-BD) has rapidly spread and has been more and more recognized as an effective therapeutic tool after ERCP failure in distal malignant biliary obstruction. Currently, the best route to achieve EUS-BD (ie, EUS-CD vs hepatogastrostomy) and the best stent (ie, SEMS vs lumen-apposing metal stent [LAMS]) or technique (ie, over-the-wire access vs electrocautery enhanced) still h...
