Sampling at ERCP may be performed at the level of the papilla or of the biliopancreatic ducts. Samples collected at the level of the biliopancreatic ducts allow for diagnosing malignancy with a specificity close to 100% but present a moderate sensitivity in most studies. In this article, the different aspects of sampling at ERCP are discussed, and a special focus is placed on the means that are routinely available to the endoscopist for obtaining a high sensitivity for the diagnosis of malignancy.
