Abstract

Intraductal biliary lesions can involve the main hepatic confluence. Assessment of the extension of pedunculated biliary lesions during per-oral cholangioscopy (POCS) can optimize and personalize the surgical strategy. Four consecutive cases of pedunculated biliary lesions were analysed. Cholangioscopy was performed with a disposable single-operator cholangioscope. POSC was successfully performed in four patients (three female, mean age 50 years), showing involvement of the main biliary confluence in three of four pedunculated biliary lesions; direct biopsy sampling was diagnostic in two of three cases (in one patient, biopsy were not performed due to the smooth appearance of the intrabiliary lesion). No adverse events occurred after POCS. Surgery required excision of the main hepatic confluence in two of three cases (one patient was not resectable). POCS can diagnose intrabiliary extension of protruding biliary lesions, providing important information to plan the surgical intervention.
