Pancreatobiliary Strictures (PBS)

Slide 3

September 2011

Pancreatobiliary strictures, abbreviated in this slide as PBS, are a common occurrence in clinical practice. Pancreatic biliary strictures may result from malignant or benign processes although malignant strictures are likely more common in clinical practice. Pancreatic cancer and cholangiocarcinoma are the most common etiologies of these strictures. It may be difficult to determine the difference between a small cancer in the head of the pancreas and a distal cholangiocarcinoma given their intimate anatomic association. The etiologies of these pancreatobiliary strictures are often unclear.
