Bilateral Metal Stents for Hilar Biliary Obstruction Using a 6Fr Delivery System: Outcomes Following Bilateral and Side-by-Side Stent Deployment


Controversy exists on optimal endoscopic management for palliation of malignant hilar obstruction, with advocates for metal “side-by-side” (SBS) and “stent-in-stent” (SIS) techniques. We sought to evaluate the technical feasibility, efficacy, and outcomes of bilateral biliary self-expanding metal stents (SEMS) for treatment of malignant hilar obstruction… (More)
