The article highlights the results of a study which proposed simple measures to prevent post-endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) pancreatitis. The researchers have recognized a similar risk for post-ERCP pancreatitis in all four series, identifying homogeneity of the odds ratios and concluding that the efficacy of prophylactic NSAIDs applies to both standard- and high-risk patients.
