Brief Summary:
  1. Background & Rationale

    Over 650,000 endoscopic retrograde cholangio-pancreatography (ERCP) procedures are performed annually in the United States alone. ERCP is universally performed using a highly specialized type of flexible endoscope called a duodenoscope. Though critical for the successful completion of ERCP, the design of duodenoscopes makes them among the most complicated medical devices that require routine disinfection and reprocessing. In recent years, several ERCP-related infectious outbreaks have occurred.

    Thus, it is clear that novel strategies need to be developed in order to prevent future ERCP-related outbreaks. Specialized duodenoscopes with disposable caps have been developed, and these represent a promising new modality with the potential to drastically reduce the rates of duodenoscope-related infection.

  2. Research Questions & Objectives

    There are two co-primary outcomes in this study; the first is to determine the clinical efficacy of a novel duodenoscope with a disposable elevator cap (DEC) system compared with a duodenoscope with a traditional design. The second co-primary objective is to determine the rate of persistent pathogenic contamination of the novel duodenoscope following standardized disinfection and reprocessing protocols compared with a traditional duodenoscope.

  3. Methods

This is a prospective, consecutive, randomized controlled study. The intervention arm will comprise use of the ED34-i10T2 duodenoscope with DEC, along with any required standard ERCP accessories, whereas the control arm will comprise use of the ED34-i10T duodenoscope with any required ERCP accessories. All procedures will be performed by expert endoscopists with adequate training, or by advanced endoscopy trainees under direct supervision.

Collected data will include primary endpoints listed above, in addition to patient demographics, endoscopist and trainee data, sedation used, procedural details, and peri-procedural data. Data will be collected at index procedure and at 30-day follow-up. All data will be recorded on REDCap.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 520 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Triple (Participant, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Masking Description: The patient, investigator and outcomes assessors will be blinded to the intervention. The endoscopist will not be blinded, since the type of scope and cap being used can be detected during the procedure.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. ERCP technical success rate [ Time Frame: Immediate ]
    Technical success will be determined in duplicate by two blinded outcome adjudicators with no knowledge of the patient's allocation in the study. The adjudicators will review redacted and de-identified procedure reports for each study patient, and determine the presence or absence of technical success of the overall procedure based on a set of a priori definitions.

  2. Persistent bacterial contamination rate [ Time Frame: Immediate ]
    Persistent bacterial contamination will be assessed following standardized disinfection and reprocessing using microbiologic swabs and culturing.
