Several long-term indwelling interventional treatments for benign biliary stricture have been developed.
Ischemic injury results from excessive surgical dissection of tissue around the bile duct, leading to injury of the vascular plexus around the bile duct, resulting in biliary stricture. Therefore, the repair of iatrogenic bile duct injury is important.
The energy settings and ablation time used were determined by referring to a previously described RFA-induced biliary stricture model (10).

In the former group, the conditions for which ERCP using the Swing Tip was performed were as follows: gallbladder drainage, n=17; benign biliary stricture, n=8; malignant biliary stricture, n=18; bile leakage after surgery, n=6.
We present a case of late anastomotic biliary stricture (ABS) development presenting 10 years after LT for idiopathic recurrent intrahepatic cholestasis in the setting of an intraductally retained 5 Fr pediatric feeding tube placed prophylactically at the time of LT and provide a synopsis of the rationale for, use, and outcomes of prophylactic transanastomotic prostheses, including biliary tubes and stents, during LT.
With this method the operator will be able to perform balloon dilatation of the biliary stricture and to use EHL to disintegrate the large stones or when the stones were impacted behind the strictures.

The Habib EndoHPB wire guided catheter (EMcision, Hitchin Herts, UK) was advanced over a wire at the level of the biliary stricture and ablation using a RITA 1500X RF generator (Angiodynamics, Latham, NY) set at 7-10 watts for a time period of 2 minutes was conducted (Figures 2, 3, and 4).
Similarly, in another study of patients with chronic pancreatitis and biliary stricture, all 11 patients who received multiple stents had no recurrent cholangitis and had a reduced ductal diameter after 4 years of follow-up, whereas some of the 34 patients who had only one stent placed had recurrent cholangitis and none had reduction in bile duct diameter.
