Ex vivo application of endocytoscopy for determining the longitudinal extent of bile duct cancer: a pathological analysis of 28 resected cases.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The aim was to examine the diagnostic ability of an endocytoscope system (ECS) for detecting the longitudinal extent of bile duct cancer. METHODS We observed the surfaces of the bile duct of 28 consecutive patients undergoing biliary surgery both directly and under methylene blue staining by using an ECS. Based on the change in the… (More)
