In this authoritative lecture, Dr. Gimenez gives an overview and a comparison analysis of the different minimally invasive palliative treatment options with regards to unresectable biliopancreatic cancer. He compares non-radical resection with the bypass procedure for pancreatic cancer, and summarizes technical aspects, cost analysis, various approaches, and potential complications related to the use of different stents and innovative ablative therapies by going through different studies.
