article description
Biliary stent placement is an adjunct for complex biliary intervention. Patients with benign biliary strictures or aversion to external drainage may benefit from placement of retrievable biliary stents. This report describes a patient with a working diagnosis of benign biliary stricture who underwent interventional radiology-operated endoscopy-guided transnasal placement of a fully covered retrievable biliary stent.
