The article focuses on the preliminary data on the use of intraductal optical coherence tomography (OCT) during endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) for investigating main pancreatic duct structures. According to sources, OCT, which is an optical imaging technique using infrared light, was inserted inside a standard transparent ERCP catheter. This study is intended to assess the feasibility of intraductal OCT in vivo during an ERCP procedure.

    Purpose: Post-endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) perforation usually resolves conservatively; however, intervention is sometimes needed, and there is a paucity of literature regarding the best management approach. We evaluated our experience of managing post-ERCP perforations...

    Abstract  Pancreaticopleural fistula is a rare complication of acute pancreatitis with pancreatic pseudocyst. We report the case of a 39-year-old man admitted for respiratory distress. Chest X-ray showed a pleural effusion, and thoracentesis yielded bloody fluid. Computed tomography (CT)...

    The purpose of this study was to retrospectively assess the diagnostic performance of multi-detector row computed tomography (MDCT) in an evaluation of pancreas divisum using endoscopic retrograde pancreatography (ERP) as the reference standard. We analyzed 41 consecutive patients (14 cases of...
