Abstract

Although endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography is considered the gold standard to manage biliary disorders, it has its own limitations. The single-operator cholangioscopy (SOC) system (Spyglass) may offer an interesting compromise for most advanced biliary endoscopists, in terms of size (10 Fr diameter) and complexity of use. SOC is a great step toward intraductal visualization and therapy but the best is yet to come.
