The treatment of biliary stenoses is based on the use of plastic or metallic biliary prostheses put in place during endoscopic retrograde cholangio pancreatography, we aim through this study to identify the main indications of biliary prostheses and the short-term results. We collected 107 cases of patients during an 11-year period in whom biliary implants were placed. Biliary stenting was indicated for malignant strictures in 54% of cases and for benign strictures in 46% of cases. Malignant strictures are dominated by tumors of the head of the pancreas, cholangiocarcinomas, while Stenting for benign pathologies is mainly represented by calculations in the absence of total biliary clearance and chronic pancreatitis, The short-term evolution was favorable in all our patients.
