Effect of a Fatty Meal on Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)
Recruitment status was Recruiting
This study is to determine if a fatty meal would improve the ERCP procedure.
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
|Official Title:||Effect of a Fatty Meal on Cannulation at Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography|
- the facilitative effect of a fatty meal on major papilla by measuring the cannulation time; the amount of x-ray exposure during the procedure
- follow up within 3 days for complication with relation to the cannulation time
|Study Start Date:||May 2003|
A fatty meal is a potent stimulator of cholecystikinin (CCK) in human body. The biological effect of CCK is increasing bile secretion and relaxing the sphincter of Oddi. Theoretically, a fatty meal should facilitate the effect on cannulation at ERCP. If a fatty meal can make the major papilla cannulation easier, it may significantly shorten the procedure time for ERCP and even decrease complications of the procedure, since the complication rate of post-ERCP is positively related to the time of the procedure.
Comparison: Approximately one hour before ERCP procedure, patient will have a fatty meal in the study group and normal saline in control group.
