(ERCP) with sphincterotomy and stone extraction is a standard procedure in the management of common bile duct
Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography with rendezvous cannulation reduces pancreatic injury
PubMed - PMC3785624 : To examine whether rendezvous endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is associated with less pancreatic damage, measured as leakage of proenzymes, than conventional ERCP.
Using balloon-overtube-assisted enteroscopy [BOAE] for postoperative ERCP
Pubmed PMC4212471: Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is technically more challenging in patients with postsurgical anatomy such as Roux-en-Y anastomosis, frequently mandating an operative intervention. Although limited, there is growing evidence that ERCP can be performed using the balloon-overtube-assisted enteroscopy (BOAE) in patients with complex postoperative anatomy.
Pubmed PMC3607778: Bacteremia following endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a severe complication, but the risk factors for this condition have not yet been clearly determined. Thus, the aim of this study was to investigate the risk factors of post-ERCP bacteremia.
Pubmed PMC4248201: For prevention of severe PEP, patient risk stratification, appropriate selection of patients using noninvasive
diagnostic imaging methods such as magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography or endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS), and avoidance of unnecessary invasive procedures, are important measures to be taken before any procedure.
