  1. 1. Aspects on the role of prophylactic procedures to influence post-ERCP complication rates

    Author : Greger Olsson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; ERCP;

    Abstract : Background: When the technique to use ERCP was introduced almost fifty years ago, the morbidity in treatment of hepato-biliary diseases decreased due to the introduction of this miniinvasive modality, reducing the need for open surgical procedures. However, ERCP procedures are still marred with complications such as pancreatitis, cholangitis, hemorrhage and perforation and every measure must be undertaken to reduce these adverse events.

  2. 2. Aspects of interventional endoscopic treatment of common bile duct stones

    Author : Fredrik Swahn; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; ERCP;

    Abstract : Background: During the last 30 years, important changes have been introduced in the management of common bile duct stones (CBDS) which can be detected in about 10% of patients undergoing cholecystectomy because of symptomatic gallstone disease. Established minimally-invasive treatment options for CBDS include endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and laparoscopic common bile duct exploration. READ MORE

    Abstract : Endoscopic retrograde cholangio pancreatography (ERCP) is a commonly used procedure in various disorders of the pancreatobiliary tract. When extracting common bile duct stones (CBDS), the major duodenal papilla is divided using a papillotome to perform an endoscopic sphincterotomy (ES). READ MORE
