ASGE Masterclass: Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) On-Demand | January 2022
Release Date: January 24, 2022
Viewing Time:
7 hours

ASGE Masterclasses, facilitated by expert gastroenterologists and endoscopists, will highlight clinical cases, practical tips learned, ASGE technology reviews and guideline recommendations on Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP).  You will be able to listen and participate in interactive sessions in addition to engaging Q&A throughout the program.

The program begins by highlighting initial trends in ERCP use as a procedure of choice over the past two decades to address acute pancreatitis with coexisting acute cholangitis or biliary obstruction. Faculty specifically review ERCP prevalence trends, hospitalization cost and stay, and predictors of utilization of ERCP amongst patients with acute pancreatitis. Discussions progress into areas of fundamental changes in treatment approaches that have included a decrease in the use of routine preoperative biliary drainage in patients with obstructive jaundice, an increase in the use of intraoperative cholangiogram, and a decrease in surgical bile duct injuries with the advent of laparoscopic cholecystectomy.  

Faculty conclude this program with a vision forward and the projected changes and disruptive approaches in the medical, endoscopic, and surgical management of pancreaticobiliary disease. 

Learning Objectives
  • Review common developments of dedicated duodenoscopes, techniques and tools for therapeutic intervention and how ERCP is used in the management of pancreaticobiliary disease (comprehension)
  • Outline standards of practice for the appropriateness of preoperative noninvasive imaging or preoperative ERCP, before cholecystectomy based on pretest probability of retained bile duct stone.
  • Interpret various cases, videos and images presented on the use of ERCP. (application)
  • Summarize trends anticipated and disruptive approaches in the medical, endoscopic, and surgical management of pancreaticobiliary disease. (synthesis)

Optimal Viewing Experience in GI Leap
Although all browsers continually roll out new versions and updates, we currently recommend using Chrome for the best functionality when accessing GI Leap. Please note that Internet Explorer is not a supported browser. Follow these tips for better streaming and viewing of ASGE videos:

  1. Close other applications and browser tabs. This decreases the load on memory so your computer or other device can focus on streaming.
  2. Use a 5 GHz frequency if your router supports it. The common 2.4 GHz frequency is used by household appliances, so is more crowded. Avoiding it is like getting into the carpool lane on a freeway: smoother sailing.
  3. Use Ethernet instead of Wi-Fi if possible but GI LEAP is built with Wi-Fi in mind. 
  4. Monitor your internet connection. If your ISP has promised you 5MBps and you are getting only 1MBps, it's time for a phone call to your internet provider to sort that out.
