ERCP (Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography)
This eight-page illustrated handout helps people prepare for an endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), which is a procedure that uses upper gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy and x-rays together to examine and diagnose problems of the gallbladder and pancreas. It explains how the procedure works, and contains guidelines to help the patient prepare. It provides patients with a step-by-step explanation of what will happen during the procedure, and after. The document identifies those symptoms for which a doctor should be called, clarifying those for which to call 911 immediately.
