Abstract

Pancreatitis is the most frequent complication of the ERCP; in unselected patients the incidence is 3.5%, reaching 25%, and is mild-moderate in 90%. A stratification of patients into low or high risk is important to provide adequate information to patients and to decide when refer them to tertiary centers; moreover, many prophylactic measures have been proposed over years. Our aim was to select risk factors for PEP and compare them with current literature in order to propose adequate preventive strategies.
