The literature data on the efficacy of various methods of diagnosis of obstructive jaundice syndrome caused by stones and bile duct strictures of various origins were analyzed. The analysis of own data was made on the efficacy and accuracy of cholangioscopy and confocal laser endomicroscopy to diagnose the causes of biliary obstruction. The efficacy of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography was considered in combination with additional examination methods.
