What patients need to know about ERCP

Most people will never have an ERCP. However, for patients who need it, ERCP is a critical and life-saving procedure. ERCP is the least invasive way for doctors to diagnose and treat problems in the bile duct and pancreatic ducts, including infections, stones, tumors, and blockages. Experts all agree that there is no demonstrable infection transmission risk related to upper endoscopy or colonoscopy. Patients should not avoid these procedures, which include colon cancer screening tests. To put the issue in perspective, the infectious complication rate for these specific types of infections is about 150 out of more than 1 million procedures over the last two years. The therapeutic benefits of this procedure far outweigh the potential low risk of infection. For more information about these bacteria, visit the CDC website. AGA appreciates the involvement of CDC, FDA, FUJI, Pentax, ECRI Institute and the GI and infectious disease experts in developing these recommendations and for their commitment to "Getting to Zero."
