This book provides a comprehensive overview of non-surgical treatments for complicated and refractory biliary and pancreatic lesions. In particular, it offers non-surgical treatment options for benign biliary strictures. For those suffering from intractable total biliary obstruction following biliary operation, magnetic compression anastomosis represents a good therapeutic option, and this technique is fully explained. Moreover, the book describes diverse treatment modalities for hilar stricture, which is one of the most challenging areas of ERCP. Several chapters cover a variety of important aspects of this area.
The book also aims to identify and solve the unmet needs for the diagnosis and treatment of biliary and pancreatic diseases.
