Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The advances within pancreaticobiliary endoscopy in recent decades have been remarkable. Various pancreaticobiliary diseases (e.g., early-stage pancreaticobiliary cancers, early-stage chronic pancreatitis, etc.), which were previously difficult to diagnose, are now easily characterized, especially using EUS and EUS-guided sampling. Cholangioscopy and pancreatoscopy have further expanded diagnostic and therapeutic possibilities. On the other hand, the palliation of endoscopic symptoms has also made significant progress. Complementary to ERCP, therapeutic EUS has revolutionized the possibility of obtaining minimally invasive palliation of cancer-related symptoms. The advent of the lumen-apposing metal stent has even created new endoscopic procedures, reducing the need for more invasive surgical or percutaneous interventions. In this Special Issue, we welcome authors to submit papers on the clinical advancements within diagnostic and therapeutic pancreatobiliary endoscopy.
