Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Biliary drainage for malignant hilar strictures includes endoscopic and percutaneous approaches. In general, endoscopic drainage is the first approach for Bismuth types I and II, while percutaneous drainage is recommended for Bismuth types III and IV. However, a multidisciplinary approach involving an endoscopist and radiologist is needed for a far-advanced malignant hilar stricture, and endoscopic and percutaneous drainage can be used in a complementary manner.
