Abstract

Background: Despite the progress in the technology of endoscopy and cholangio
pancreatography (ERCP), acute pancreatitis is still the common as a consequent complain. In the
present study, the prevalence of panceratitis after endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography
was surveyed.
Methods and Materials: In this descriptive study, 112 patients referred for ERCP, aged 21 to 83
years, were studied. After collection of some information about age, gender and ERCP indications,
ERCP was performed. The serum amylase levels were consequently measured at 4 and 24 hours
after pancreatography.
Post ERCP pancreatitis was diagnosed when serum amylase level was normal before ERCP but
increased in for times in 24 hours post ERCP.
Results: In 112 patients, the prevalence of panceratitis according to the post ERCP serum
amylase level and abdomen pain was 12%. A higher prevalence was seen in females comparing to
males. The west common diagnostic outcome of ERCP was stone in common bile duct and
operation was sphancterotomy.
Conclusion: The result of this study further confirmed that the progress in the technology of
ERCP could not decrease the prevalence of post ERCP pancreatitis. The higher prevalence of post
ERCP pancreatitis in females, the requirement of further notice to this group.
