Patients with suspected sphincter of Oddi dysfunction (SOD) may present with chronic pancreaticobiliary-type pain or unexplained recurrent pancreatitis. Most authorities consider sphincter of Oddi manometry (SOM) to be the most accurate means to assess for SOD. Most commonly performed at endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), SOM requires mastery of the fundamentals of ERCP as well as a familiarity with the additional equipment and requisite technical skills. This review will discuss the technique of SOM, with an emphasis on the essential skill sets required.
