Core Tip Some malignant distal biliary obstruction needs to be drained for palliative treatment, and the endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) with placement of a stent has been a first choice. However, ERCP can be failed or not suitable for some challenging cases. The endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided biliary drainage with electrocautery-enhanced lumen-apposing metal stent can be an alternative choice for ERCP, with the strength to perform biliary-enteric anastomosis under EUS guidance in a single step, without the need for prior bile duct puncture or a guidewire. In this editorial, the efficacy and safety of it have been discussed, highlighting the latest advances.
