I'm new to this group -- but can see this board is active with helpful information re: PC.

Are there specific pros / cons which one should consider in deciding on plastic v. metal stent for relief of bile duct obstruction? Does pursuing one or the other close down future treatment (surgical or medical) options?

Thanks in advance.
