    : ObjectivesData in the literature regarding complication risks after the extension of a previous endoscopic biliary sphincterotomy (repeat endoscopic biliary sphincterotomy) are limited and controversial. To explore this issue, we prospectively studied complications after repeat sphincterotomy...

    This article focuses on a study related to neural networking to predict bleeding at sphincterotomy during ERCP. Sphincterotomy at ERCP is perhaps the most dangerous of all procedures at therapeutic endoscopy. Neural networking is a computer based tool which researchers developed to improve the...

    Introduction. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a complex endoscopic technique that evolved from a diagnostic to a mainly therapeutic procedure. This was due to the identification of post-procedura! complications that can follow both simple ERCP and that associated with...

    Endoscopic biliary sphincterotomy (ES) is the cornerstone of therapeutic endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP); however, serious complications are not uncommon. Post-sphincterotomy bleeding is one of the most frequent complications following ES and may occur in up to 10% of the...

    Background: Fully covered self-expandable metal stents (FCSEMS) have been used as a rescue therapy for several benign biliary tract conditions (BBC). Long-term stent placement commonly occurs, and prolonged FCSEMS placement is associated with the majority of the complications reported. This...

    Introduction Precut sphincterotomy facilitates selective bile duct access during endoscopic retrograde choliangiopancreaticography (ERCP) in patients in whom conventional cannulation has failed. However, it is associated with a higher complication rate and does not always facilitate successful...

    Background and aims. Initial experience with the posterior sphincterotomy for treating anal fissures was unsatisfactory, with a significant rate of recurrences and anal incontinence. This report describes the lateral approach to complete section of the internal sphincter. Patients and methods....

    The therapeutic approach in post-ERCP bleeding depends on the severity of the episode. In most instances early bleeding is self-limited, but when it is severe enough endoscopic injection of epinephrine (EP) is the usual treatment. Nevertheless, in some cases bleeding relapses, whereas in between...

    Background: There is scarce information on whether performing the precut procedure early rather than after several cannulation attempts is associated with different success and complication rates. Objective: The aim of this retrospective study was is to compare the early precut technique with...
