GARCIA, Joaquín; RODRIGUEZ, Alonzo; DI TRAPANI, Nelson  and  OTERO, Marta. Biopsy of biliary ducts via percutaneous catheterization: first experience in Uruguay. Rev. Méd. Urug. [online]. 2020, vol.36, n.1, pp.235-248.  Epub Mar 01, 2020. ISSN 0303-3295.

The study presents the first experience in Uruguay of a forceps biopsy of biliary ducts via percutaneous catheterization performed in a patient with hilar biliary strictures probably caused by a tumor. As far as we know, no reports on this technique have been published in our country.

It is important to spread the availability of this technique in our country since it provides the medical team with a new tool for the diagnostic handling of biliary strictures.

Keywords : Biopsy; Stenosis; Diagnostic technique; Bile duct diseases.
