The purpose of this research study is to collect data on the technical aspects of Lasparoscopy-assisted ERCP and patient outcomes to help guide future medical care of patients with Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery.

Condition Intervention
Biliary Disease Pancreas Disease Procedure: Laparoscopy assisted ERCP

Further study details as provided by University of Florida:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • patients with altered gastric anatomy who need an ERCP [ Time Frame: approximately one week ]

Estimated Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: December 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Altered gastric anatomy
Patients who have an altered gastric who need an ERCP
Procedure: Laparoscopy assisted ERCP
Patients will go the the Operating room and through laparoscopy will have an ERCP for their medical indication.
Other Names:
  • Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)
  • Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery
  • Laparoscopy

Detailed Description:
Patients would have had a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass in the past that had altered their gastric anatomy. Now they have developed bilary and/or pancreatic problems that require and ERCP. With their altered gastric anatomy a standard ERCP would not be possible. Thus they are scheduled for a Laparoscopy-assisted ERCP.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Those patients who have altered gastric anatomy that require a laparoscopy assisted ERCP

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Age 18 years and older
  • Altered gastric anatomy
  • Scheduled to undergo laparoscopy-assisted ERCP

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Any contraindications to performing endoscopy
  • Participation in another research protocol that could interfere or influence the outcomes measures of the present study.
  • The subject is unable/unwilling to give informed consent
