EUS-Guided Rendezvous or Direct Interventions Versus Advanced ERCP Techniques for Biliary Access and Therapy
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
The purpose of this study is to prospectively compare the efficacy of endoscopic ultrasound-guided biliary interventions (EUS-rendezvous or direct EUS-guided therapy) to that of advanced ERCP cannulation techniques in the setting of difficult cannulation. We hypothesize that EUS-guided interventions will be more successful and may be associated with the same complications as using advanced ERCP techniques in cases of difficult bile duct access.
