Abstract

The magnitude of post ERCP pancreatitis as a clinical and economic problem has increased, and with it the need to find ways of decreasing its incidence and severity. Furthermore, the study of post-ERCP pancreatitis is interesting as a unique model for acute pancreatitis in general. Current thinking and results of recent promising studies are reviewed.
