Endoscopy in the Management of Malignant Hiliar Obstruction

Endoscopy in the Management of Malignant Hiliar Obstruction
ASGE evidence-based guidelines are based on a comprehensive systematic review and rigorous methodology. Guideline panels consist of content experts, stakeholders from other specialties, patient representatives, and members of the ASGE Standards of Practice (SOP) Committee. Each recommendation is based on consideration of the best medical literature, the balance between risks and benefits, cost-effectiveness, patients' values, and equity. The ASGE guideline on the role of endoscopy in the management of malignant hilar obstruction provides an evidence-based approach for management of patients with malignant hilar obstruction. Recommendations address primary drainage modality (percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage [PTBD] vs endoscopic biliary drainage [EBD]), drainage strategy (unilateral vs bilateral), and stent selection (plastic stent [PS] vs self expandable metal stent [SEMS]).  During this webinar, we will review the recommendations and discuss how to implement them into your practice.
