Biliary Stricture

Survivability of Biliary Stricture

Depending on the cause of the narrowing, a patient’s individual bile duct stricture prognosis will vary dramatically.

For patients with gallstones or bile duct injury, treatments are usually successful, while the prognosis for malignant biliary stricture, depends on the stage of the cancer. The 5-year survivability of biliary stricture resulting from cancerous biliary stricture tumors can be up to 30% depending on the severity.

For this reason, Florida Hospital specialists encourage patients with symptoms of biliary stricture to seek medical screening and treatment as soon as possible.
