The angle between the right hepatic duct and the common bile duct was steep (100°); B: The 0.035 inch guidewire was inserted through the PTBD catheter, and then the PTBD catheter was removed; C: The end of the guidewire was placed outside the papilla; D: The guidewire was inserted through a bottle-top metal-tip endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) cannula, and then the ERCP cannula was advanced into the intrahepatic bile duct; E: Two inside stents were placed over the stricture in the anterior and posterior branches of the right hepatic duct in the recipient liver.
