Many gastroenterologists and medical staff regard ERCP as the supreme discipline in upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. Procedural challenges such as finding the major papilla, accessing the bile and pancreatic ducts, and the maneuvering and precise execution of therapeutic measures in the bile duct require high-level orientation skills, sensitivity and a well-practiced, set routine.
Ensuring optimal ERCP outcomes and minimizing potential patient risks such as post-ERCP pancreatitis (ERCP-related adverse events: European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) Guideline) require the successful completion of three essential phases: access, device exchange and therapy.
Every ERCP procedure presents its own unique challenges and necessities. Having a full product lineup at hand is therefore essential for optimal processes during ERCP procedures.
Olympus offers a range of guidewires and associated devices to help streamline ERCP procedures and improve patient outcomes:

Finding a routine and ensuring the correct prior preparation are essential when performing ERCP. "Are ERCP training courses available?", "When is the next ERCP training course?" are frequently asked questions from health care professionals.
