We thank Dr. Siegel for his interest in our study. The emphasis of our study was to assess the effect of endoscopic therapy on the long-term survival of PSC patients with dominant strictures. We therefore listed only a limited number of references pertaining to the technical aspects of ERCP. The reviewers who reviewed our manuscript for the journal obviously concurred with this approach.
