Abstract


Cholecystitis can be a serious complication following endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). Though the concept of early post-ERCP cholecystitis (PEC) is well known, studies that analysed the predictors, occurrence and outcomes of early PEC are rare. This is an analysis of 11 cases developing severe early post-ERCP cholecystitis.


Keywords
