With the development of safer and relatively non-invasive investigations such as magnetic resonance cholangiopan-creatography (MRCP) and endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), ERCP
is now rarely performed without therapeutic intent like endoscopic biliary drainage, bile duct stone removel, dilatation of strictures and endoscopic sphincterotomy.

However, due to the multiple complications including 2 faulty heart valves, rare but severe hypertension in the lungs and an irregular heartbeat, the risks associated with sedating the patient and conducting ERCP
Since its introduction in 1995-96, Magnetic Resonance Cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) has emerged as a noninvasive diagnostic alternative to ERCP
for the detection and exclusion of CBD stones.
It was shown that the model predicted death after ERCP
within 30 days with a 75.
Thirty one patients were diagnosed with Post ERCP

Periampullary diverticula are found in 9-32% of patients who undergo ERCP
In conclusion, we consider that EUS-BD is a better second drainage method for distal malignant obstruction than PTBD in severely obese patients when ERCP

Synthetic human secretin, manufactured under the brand name ChiRhoStim[TM], was approved by the FDA in 2004 for the stimulation of pancreatic secretions to help diagnose pancreatic exocrine dysfunction, stimulation of gastrin secretion to help diagnose gastrinoma, and facilitation of the identification of the ampulla during ERCP
