FISHing for pancreatobiliary tract malignancy in endoscopic brushings enhances the sensitivity of routine cytology.

Abstract

Pancreatobiliary tract carcinoma is a lethal disease with low survival rates and limited treatment options. Diagnosis is complicated by benign conditions that can mimic malignancy on radiological studies (e.g. primary sclerosing cholangitis or PSC) and the suboptimal sensitivity of endoscopic biopsy/brushings obtained by endoscopic retrograde… (More)
