Abstract

Characterization of indeterminate biliary strictures remains problematic. Tissue sampling is the criterion standard for confirming malignancy but has low sensitivity. Probe-based confocal laser endomicroscopy (pCLE) showed excellent sensitivity in a registry; however, it has not been validated in a prospective study.
