Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) has become one of the most important techniques in the treatment of bile duct stones. A number of studies have been conducted using large-balloon dilation (LBD) after adequate EST to extract large bile duct stones. In those studies, the authors suggested that EST plus LBD might lower the risk of post procedure pancreatitis (PEP) by directing balloon dilation toward the bile duct rather than the pancreatic duct. It has been reported that EPBD followed by insertion of nasobiliary drainage catheter can prevent PEP. However, it is still unclear that nasobiliary drainage after endoscopic sphincterotomy plus large-balloon dilation for preventing postoperative pancreatitis in treating of large bile duct stones.The investigators therefore designed a prospective randomized trial to determine whether nasobiliary drainage prevent PEP after endoscopic sphincterotomy plus LBD for the treatment of large bile duct stones.
Patients enrolled were confirmed the presence of CBD stones using magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography. Patients with large bile duct stones were randomly assigned to EST+LBD+ENBD group and EST+LBD group. A descriptive analysis will be performed on primary endpoint, containing frequency of number and percentage of patients. A two proportion equality test will be conducted to explore whether incidence rates are different. Descriptive statistics including number (N), mean, median, standard deviation, minimum and maximum, will be produced for all continuous variables. Frequency tables of number (N) and percentage of subjects will be produced for all categorical variables.

The purpose of this study is to compare the incidence of post-ERCP pancreatitis (PEP) in chronic pancreatitis (CP) patients to that in biliary disease patients, to determine whether CP pat...
Post endoscopic pancreatitis (PEP) has different initial immunologic response to primary injury compared to acute pancreatitis of other etiology (non-PEP AP). The purpose of this study is...
Acute pancreatitis is the most common and feared complication of ERCP, occurring after 1% to 30% of procedures. Since 2012, a multicenter RCT was published in NEJM, indomethacin use in hig...
Post-ERCP pancreatitis (PEP) is the most common adverse event of ERCP. Rectal indomethacin has been widely administered to decrease the incidence of PEP in high-risk patients. However, it cannot compl...
During this session, 3 European and 4 Japanese endoscopists gave presentations on 3 ERCP and 4 EUS topics (Table 1, Figure 1).It has been 50 years since ERCP was developed and it is now the standard o...

To describe the epidemiology and clinical features of acute pancreatitis and recurrent acute pancreatitis in children.
It is generally accepted that precut sphincterotomy during endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) increases the risk of pancreatitis. However, patients with difficult biliary access may...
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.
Acute or chronic INFLAMMATION of the PANCREAS due to excessive ALCOHOL DRINKING. Alcoholic pancreatitis usually presents as an acute episode but it is a chronic progressive disease in alcoholics.
A severe form of acute INFLAMMATION of the PANCREAS characterized by one or more areas of NECROSIS in the pancreas with varying degree of involvement of the surrounding tissues or organ systems. Massive pancreatic necrosis may lead to DIABETES MELLITUS, and malabsorption.
C-type lectins that restrict growth of bacteria in the intestinal epithelia and have bactericidal activity against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. They also regulate proliferation and differentiation of KERATINOCYTES following injury. Human pancreatitis-associated protein-1 (Reg3a) is overexpressed by pancreatic ACINAR CELLS in patients with CHRONIC PANCREATITIS. It is also highly expressed by pancreatic, bladder, and gastrointestinal cancer cells and may serve as a diagnostic biomarker.
A class of traumatic stress disorders that is characterized by the significant dissociative states seen immediately after overwhelming trauma. By definition it cannot last longer than 1 month, if it persists, a diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder (STRESS DISORDERS, POST-TRAUMATIC) is more appropriate.
