Background: Deep sedation with propofol and opioid is commonly used for endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), but is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Del...
Acute pancreatitis is the most frequent (5-10%) and severe complication after endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), that could require of surgical intervention and lead to...
Pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas) is the most common complication of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), a procedure for the diagnosis and treatment of disorde...
Validation of clinical use of additioned endoscopy in Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography(ERCP) treatment.
The standard approach to sedation in endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) involves the use of benzodiazepines and opiates to achieve a moderate depth of sedation. There is...
Known complications of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) include pancreatitis, bleeding, duodenal perforation, and venous air embolism (VAE). The aim of this study was to determine...
It is unclear whether participation in competency-based fellowship programs for endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) result in high-quality care in ind...
Various endoscopic procedures under fluoroscopic guidance are being rapidly adopted, and radiation exposure is considered to be increasing. However, there is little concern about this issue in gastroe...
We have few population-level data on the performance of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) in the United States. We investigated the numbers of unplanned hospital encounters (UHEs),...
Pituitary apoplexy is an uncommon neurosurgical emergency which may be the initial presentation of undiagnosed pituitary adenomas. Though the exact pathogenesis is unclear, there appears to be an asso...
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.
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.
A specialized form of transanal endoscopic surgery for microscopically controlled operations in the RECTUM.
