Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography in Children

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a special technique that allows selective injection of contrast media into the bile and pancreatic ducts and performing various therapeutic procedures. New technologically advanced duodenoscopes make ERCP efficient and feasible even for infants with conjugated hyperbilirubinemia. The chapter is focused on the description of indications, preparation and techniques of diagnostic ERCP and various therapeutic procedures such as sphincterotomy of major and minor duodenal papilla, placement of biliary or pancreatic stent, endoscopic treatment of duodenal duplications, and pancreatic pseudocysts.
