Current Biliary Stenting Options

Current Biliary Stenting Options
Such an important topic and information. A rebroadcast presentation on how biliary stents are used to relieve obstruction in patients with both benign and malignant disease. Endoscopic biliary stenting for benign biliary strictures is useful for symptom relief and less invasive than surgery. There are several options to treat malignant biliary obstruction which are based on the goals of treatment. These include medical management, stent placement through endoscopy, percutaneous transhepatic biliary drains through interventional radiology, and surgical options. Biliary stenting and drainage through endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERCP) is the preferred method for both distal and more proximal biliary obstruction, and for patients who are not surgical candidates. This webinar will provide a perspective by Dr. Todd Baron, who will review options on the use of stents in the management of malignant pancreaticobiliary obstruction.

OBJECTIVES:

  1. Identify characteristics of hepatobiliary and pancreatic cancers and their cause on malignant biliary constriction of the bile ducts.
  2. Understand various treatment decisions for management of malignant biliary obstruction and how a multidisciplinary approach from medical oncologists, diagnostic radiologists, surgical oncologists, gastroenterologists, and interventional radiologists collectively provide optimal care options.
