Stent vs. Indomethacin for Preventing Post-ERCP Pancreatitis

Background: Pancreatitis is the most frequent complication of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), accounting for substantial morbidity, occasional mortality, and increased health care expenditures. Until recently, the only effective method of preventing post-ERCP pancreatitis (PEP) had been prophylactic pancreatic stent placement (PSP), an intervention that is costly, time consuming, technically challenging, ...


A Trial of Indomethacin in Acute Pancreatitis

Acute pancreatitis (AP) is an inflammatory condition of the pancreas following the activated pancreatic enzymes induced by varied causes, with or without other organ(s) dysfunction. The production and release of inflammatory factors is generally considered as the key factor of pathogenesis. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are the most commonly applied ...


A Randomized Controlled Pilot Trial of Indomethacin in Acute Pancreatitis

Background AP is an inflammatory disease with a highly variable clinical course that is potentially lethal. This disease is currently the leading cause of gastrointestinal-related hospital admissions in the United States and continues to rise in incidence. The inciting event leading to the development of AP is the premature activation ...

Comparative Effectiveness Between Rectally Administered Indomethacin and Pancreatic Stenting in the Prevention of Post ERCP Pancreatitis

Background of research Pancreatitis is the most common complication after Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). It occurs in approximately 5% of patients. The risk can approach 20 to 30% in those with known pre- and intra-procedural risk factors. Three in 100 patients with post ERCP pancreatitis (PEP) consequently die. The placement ...
