Description

The management of malignant biliary obstruction has evolved significantly over the past few years. Previously, an endoscopist role was mainly to achieve biliary drainage. Nowadays, the endoscopist plays a pivotal role in staging of the disease, obtaining tissue diagnosis, achieving biliary drainage by ERCP or EUS and provide endobiliary ablation in suitable patients. The aim of this webinar is to provide an overview in management of malignant biliary obstruction. In particular, we will review the current endoscopic techniques in obtaining tissue diagnosis, role of endoscopy in staging of the disease, methods of biliary drainage use ERCP and EUS and the role of endobiliary ablation.

Optimal Viewing Experience on GI Leap
Although all browsers continually roll out new versions and updates, we currently recommend using Chrome for the best functionality when accessing GI Leap. Please note that Internet Explorer is not a supported browser. Follow these tips for better streaming and viewing of ASGE videos:

  1. Close other applications and browser tabs. This decreases the load on memory so your computer or other device can focus on streaming.
  2. Use a 5 GHz frequency if your router supports it. The common 2.4 GHz frequency is used by household appliances, so is more crowded. Avoiding it is like getting into the carpool lane on a freeway: smoother sailing.
  3. Use Ethernet instead of Wi-Fi if possible but GI LEAP is built with Wi-Fi in mind. 
  4. Monitor your internet connection. If your ISP has promised you 5MBps and you are getting only 1MBps, it's time for a phone call to your internet provider to sort that out.
