The purpose of this study is to create a long-term storage of bile and brushings of pancreato-biliary duct in patients diagnosed with pancreato-biliary stricture for future research.
Recently, a lot of research has been done to test for certain markers in the bile and brushings to detect cancer in a stricture. The samples will be used to measure biomarkers (proteins) in biliary diseases.
