An advanced medical device known as a choledochoscope is used to look inside the common bile duct, which is the duct that transports bile from the liver and gallbladder to the small intestine.
The choledochoscope is a flexible or rigid tube that is put through the mouth or nose, down the esophagus and stomach, and into the small intestine. It has a light and a camera on the end.
The common bile duct entrance is reached, and the choledochoscope is then gently inserted into the duct to allow the physician to view any anomalies or blockages.
A choledochoscopy is a treatment that is frequently used to identify and treat diseases like tumors, strictures (narrowing of the duct), and gallstones. The doctor may also obtain tissue samples or clear stones or other obstructions from the bile duct during the surgery.
The Global Choledochoscope Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Peroral cholangioscopy has emerged as a crucial diagnostic and therapeutic tool for a wide range of biliary disorders, including bile duct stones and ambiguous biliary strictures.
Cholangioscopes that produce high-resolution images, have single-operator capabilities and have an ultrathin design to facilitate greater maneuverability and detailed imaging of the biliary tract have all been made possible by recent technological advancements.
The “mother-baby” cholangioscope, often referred to as peroral videocholangioscopy, utilizes a very thin video cholangioendoscope.
With the development of direct cholangioscopy, biliary disease diagnosis and treatment have advanced significantly. It has made it possible for endoscopists to give specialised treatment and see the biliary system in never-before-seen detail.
In the examination of indeterminate biliary strictures, one of the trickiest clinical conundrums in biliary endoscopy, POC is a promising supplementary tool.
The creation of more precise visual criteria for malignancy in SOC is one of the primary focuses for future research. Given its current high cost, the level of expertise needed for use, and other advanced imaging tools that are already in use or being developed, it is also unknown whether cholangioscopy will be widely adopted.
