Özet

Background: Biliary fistula develops in 4%-28% of patients after hepatic hydatid disease (HHD) surgery. Although endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and endoscopic sphincterotomy (ES) are helpful in the treatment of this complication, persistent fistulas may occur. We therefore conducted a study to evaluate the efficacy of encloscopic biliary stenting in the treatment of biliary fistulas after HHD.
