Endoscopic management of biliary obstruction with SEMS: Part 2

Endoscopic placement of self-expandable metallic stents (SEMS) has become an established treatment option in the palliation of biliary obstructions resulting from pancreaticobiliary disorders.

To discuss biliary stenting and recent developments in this area, we invited two experts in endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) to share their experience and perspectives with us in this 3-part video series. In our second installment, Dr. Raj J. Shah. and Prof. Marco Bruno talk about their approach in the palliation of a hilar biliary obstruction compared to a distal obstruction.

Refer to video one to hear Dr. Shah and Prof. Bruno discuss stent selection in common clinical settings.
