Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, or ERCP, is a procedure to diagnose and treat problems in the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts, and pancreas. It combines X-ray and the use of an endoscope—a long, flexible, lighted tube.

Almost all typed of ERCP (stones in common bile duct, mass and cancer lesion, and bile leak are included in main indication).

After ERCP, in most cases, patimnets are discharged on same evening. CBD stenting is done in almost all cases, which is removed in in a period ranging from 4-6 months.

Care is expected from patients that stent of common bile duct should not be forgotten and neglected because it can get impacted in duct and can create another problems.
