Intramuscular Diclofenac in the Prevention of Post-ERCP Pancreatitis

The recruitment status of this study is unknown. The completion date has passed and the status has not been verified in more than two years.

Pancreatitis is one of the major complications of ERCP. It has been shown that NSAIDs are potent inhibitors of phospholipase A2, activity which is increased in pancreatitis. The only one study with IM diclofenac showed reduction of post-ERCP pancreatitis without SOD (sphincter of Oddi dysfunction) by subgroup analysis in small study population. Therefore the investigators must need large scaled randomized control study including of SOD.

Condition Intervention
Post ERCP Pancreatitis Drug: Diclofenac Drug: normal saline

Study Type: Interventional

  • including patients with recently diagnosed peptic ulcer disease or active/recent gastrointestinal hemorrhage within 4 weeks,
  • renal failure (Cr > 1.4),
  • those who had taken an NSAID during the preceding week (ASA 325 mg daily or less acceptable),
