The introduction of e-PTFE covered stent-grafts has undoubtedly been taking a step forward in providing the physicians with a valid tool for the treatment, although palliative, of malignant biliary pathology.
After the very good results initially gained, the use of these new devices has been extended to biliary benign disease, thus eliminating all the problems linked to the use of plastic stents.
The aim of this book is to give an overview of the biliary benign and malignant pathology and of the great potentialities that biliary e-PTFE covered stents have. Their use has been analyzed from any point of view, including their different endoscopic or interventional applications. Consequently, this book has been conceived not only for interventional radiologists, but also for endoscopists and surgeons as well as those physicians who have to deal with such diseases in their daily activity.
With this specific aim some experts, with different backgrounds and experience, have been asked to collaborate in order to analyze the topic in all its aspects. A section of this book deals with the “how to do” description, and specifically addresses the youngest and the least experienced: this book can actually help them in their daily clinical activity and when performing procedures.
