Abstract

Biliary brushing during endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERC) may allow the diagnosis of cancer, but this technique is limited by a low (18-57%) sensitivity. We compared the cellular and diagnostic yields of a new sampling method (using stricture dilation and a grasping basket) with those of brushing.
