Abstract

Endoscopic stenting has become the standard method for biliary drainage. Plastic and self-expandable metal stents are produced in a variety of materials, lengths, and configurations, and the choice of biliary stent varies with the clinical indication and the cholangiographic findings. This article reviews the design of different biliary stents, addresses technical issues in the selection and placement of stents, and discusses management of stent occlusion and migration.
