Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-directed transgastric endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (EDGE) is a minimally invasive option for pancreaticobiliary access in patients with Roux-en-Y anatomy. The procedure involves creating a fistulous tract between the remnant stomach or jejunum and the bypassed stomach with the deployment of a lumen-apposing metal stent (LAMS), followed by the advancement of an endoscope through the LAMS to perform an ERCP or EUS. It is a technically challenging procedure, requiring skills in EUS, fluoroscopy, and LAMS deployment. The aim of this study was to determine the learning curve for EDGE.

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is an endoscopic procedure with complications. Previous studies have shown the understanding levels of ERCP among patients undergoing ERCP are var...
Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography is widely utilized to diagnose and treat various pancreaticobiliary diseases, but postendoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography pancreatitis (PEP) c...
Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is an important diagnostic and therapeutic tool in patients with hepato-pancreatobiliary diseases. In the present study, we sought to determine pr...
The 30-day hospital readmission rate is a nationally recognized quality measure. Nearly one-fifth of medicare beneficiaries are hospitalized within 30 days of discharge, resulting in a cost of over $...
Post-endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) pancreatitis (PEP) remains the most common and serious adverse event associated with ERCP. Risk factors for PEP have been described in variou...
In this study, the investigators aimed to overview patients with specific and non-specific complications who admitted to intensive care unit following endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancre...
The aim of this randomized trial is therefore to evaluate the technical aspects of disposable duodenoscopes and to compare the technical outcomes between the two duodenoscope types.
Traditional conscious sedation for endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography in prone position places patients at risk of desaturation, and high-flow nasal oxygen may reduce the risk....
Background: Deep sedation with propofol and opioid is commonly used for endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), but is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Del...
Selective cannulation is considered the most challenging step for most of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). Wire-guided cannulation is the standard technique for initi...
Fiberoptic endoscopy designed for duodenal observation and cannulation of VATER'S AMPULLA, in order to visualize the pancreatic and biliary duct system by retrograde injection of contrast media. Endoscopic (Vater) papillotomy (SPHINCTEROTOMY, ENDOSCOPIC) may be performed during this procedure.
Incision of Oddi's sphincter or Vater's ampulla performed by inserting a sphincterotome through an endoscope (DUODENOSCOPE) often following retrograde cholangiography (CHOLANGIOPANCREATOGRAPHY, ENDOSCOPIC RETROGRADE). Endoscopic treatment by sphincterotomy is the preferred method of treatment for patients with retained or recurrent bile duct stones post-cholecystectomy, and for poor-surgical-risk patients that have the gallbladder still present.
Process in which individuals take the initiative, in diagnosing their learning needs, formulating learning goals, identifying resources for learning, choosing and implementing learning strategies and evaluating learning outcomes (Knowles, 1975)
INFLAMMATION of the PANCREAS. Pancreatitis is classified as acute unless there are computed tomographic or endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatographic findings of CHRONIC PANCREATITIS (International Symposium on Acute Pancreatitis, Atlanta, 1992). The two most common forms of acute pancreatitis are ALCOHOLIC PANCREATITIS and gallstone pancreatitis.
The directed transport of ORGANELLES and molecules along nerve cell AXONS. Transport can be anterograde (from the cell body) or retrograde (toward the cell body). (Alberts et al., Molecular Biology of the Cell, 3d ed, pG3)
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
