A Prospective, Randomized Study Evaluating the Effect of Biliary Stenting on EAU-FNA in Patients With Suspected Malignant Biliary Obstruction
Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Cytological yield (adequate versus inadequate for diagnosis) of EUS-FNA prior to stent placement vs post stent placement
Cytological yield will be defined by the ability of the pathologist to render a diagnosis based on the material supplied to them during the procedure (adequate vs inadequate tissue to make a diagnosis of malignant vs benign disease).
