Despite several studies, the role and timing of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) in the case of acute biliary pancreatitis (ABP) remains a subject of discussion.There is a clear indication of early ERCP within 72 hours in patients with ABP andcholedochal obstruction, moreover the ERCP within 24 hours in cases of cholangitis. However, the role of ERCP in patients with ABP without symptoms of cholangitis or concrements obstructing the bile duct is controversial. If ABP is indicated for the ERCP, the earlier the ERCP is performed the less complications it is associated with...

An intraluminal duodenal diverticulum (IDD) is a rare congenital anomaly, which is a result of incomplete recanalization of the foregut lumen during embryonic development. Most patients are asymptomatic. Symptoms usually occur after the third decade of life and mainly include epigastric pain, nausea, vomiting, or bloating. Less commonly, IDD may complicate with bleeding, duodenal obstruction, or acute pancreatitis. We present a case of IDD, manifested for a first time in adult with acute biliary obstruction and mild pancreatitis after laparoscopic cholecystectomy for acute calculous cholecystitis, successfully managed with endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)...

BACKGROUND: Cholecystectomy after gallstone pancreatitis may be technically demanding. The aim of this study was to investigate risk factors for a difficult cholecystectomy after mild pancreatitis. METHODS: This was a prospective study within a randomized controlled trial on the timing of cholecystectomy after mild gallstone pancreatitis. Difficulty of cholecystectomy was scored on a 0 to 10 visual analogue scale (VAS) by the senior attending surgeon. The primary outcome 'difficult cholecystectomy' was defined by presence of one or more of the following features: a VAS score ≥ 8, duration of surgery > 75 minutes, conversion or subtotal cholecystectomy...

BACKGROUND: Early cholecystectomy (EC) is recommended in patients with acute biliary pancreatitis (ABP). In real-life practice, cholecystectomy is frequently deferred due to various reasons and delayed cholecystectomy (DC) is performed instead. Endoscopic sphincterotomy (ES) is an alternative to prevent recurrent pancreatitis, however other gallstone-related complications (GCs) may still develop. We aimed to determine the impact of ES on future GCs in patients with non-severe acute biliary pancreatitis whose cholecystectomy was deferred or not performed...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Acute biliary pancreatitis (ABP) is associated with increased rates of morbidity in pregnancy. Because there is a paucity of population-based studies evaluating ABP in pregnancy, we sought to investigate clinical outcomes in hospitalized pregnant women on a national level. METHODS: Using the Nationwide Readmission Database (2011-2014), we identified all women (age ≥18 years) with an index admission for ABP in the United States. Multivariate and propensity-score matched analyses were performed to evaluate the impact of pregnancy on the clinical outcomes of early readmission and severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) in ABP...
