Benign biliary strictures (BBS) are most commonly caused by iatrogenic surgical injury, usually after cholecystectomy, or may occur at the site of biliary anastomosis after hepatic resection or liver transplantation. Other causes of BBS include primary sclerosing cholangitis, chronic pancreatitis, immunoglobulin G4-related cholangiopathy, and a variety of other causes. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography has a pivotal role in the treatment of the vast majority of patients with BBS.
