Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) is a well established method for interventional procedures such as transmural drainage of pancreatic pseudocysts or celiac plexus neurolysis (CPN). There are only few reports of EUS-guided drainage of obstructed biliary ducts and none of them in Greece as far as it is known. The present case report describes the first EUS assisted biliary drainage in our hospital. Key words: endoscopic ultrasound, cholangio-drainage, cholangiocarcinoma. (EN)
