microscope which is in direct contact of the stenosis during the Endoscopic Retrograde
- Compare the result of this "optical biopsy" to a conventional biopsy.
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
The principal outcome is the percentage of successful in vivo examination according to the localisation of the stenosis. A successful examination is defined by the obtention of exploitable image for the anatomopathology.
