Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, or ERCP, is a procedure to diagnose and treat problems in the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts, and pancreas. After initial training, advanced techniques and approaches are necessary for an endoscopist interested in ERCP.
Both parts (four sections in each) constitute the module Advanced ERCP course (eight sections in total). Make sure to attend part I at the beginning for an introductory reminder.
The first part of this online course summarises basic ERCP and dives deeper into difficult cannulation , difficult biliary stones, cholangioscopy and biliary stricture evaluation and management.
The second part of this online course covers proximal obstruction, bile leaks, pancreatic endotherapy, EUS-guided access, aberrant anatomy and a course conclusion for both parts.
Both courses include comprehensive PPT slides and bespoke video presentations by Gavin Johnson, George Webster, and Simon Phillpotts which were filmed in London in 2022. Both parts of the combined material have a total duration of approximately 120 minutes. The estimated time needed to complete the courses, including the final assessment, is 2 hour.
This course is suitable for gastroenterologists in training, for gastroenterologists in advanced endoscopy training or in HPB surgery, training in ERCP. It is also appropriate for endoscopy nurses and medical students who have an interest in gastroenterology.
