Keywords Metal stent; Hilar biliary stricture; Re-intervention rate; Technical success rate
Core Tip Biliary drainage is useful to control jaundice and cholangitis in patients with inoperable malignant hilar strictures. No consensus guidelines are available to decide if bilateral stenting has any advantage over unilateral stenting. This meta-analysis adds to the growing body of evidence that bilateral stenting is technically feasible with similar early and late complications and leads to lower re-intervention rates.
