In this trial, a total of 1010 ERCP procedures performed in 410 patients at the endoscopy department of our hospital between 2006 and 2010, were retrospectively evaluated. The age, gender, complaints, pre-procedure diagnosis, the radiologic and clinical results, number of procedure repetitions and the final diagnosis were assessed. The local Ethics Committee approved this retrospective study protocol. All of the procedures were performed by the same team of endoscopists with compatible levels of ERCP experience (Mean 5 years). At our department, pethidine HCl (0.3-0.5 mg/kg), midazolam (0.03-0.07 mg/kg) and hyoscine-N-butylbromide (0.3-0.6 mg/kg) are used in the ERCP procedures for premedication and additionally, cefazolin 1 gram intravenous is routinely administered for prophyllaxis one hour before the examination. During the procedure, oxygen saturation and heart rate are monitored by pulse-oximeter. The patients were those admitted to our hospital or referred from other healthcare centers. Statistical assessment was performed by evaluating the first ERCP procedures and the repeat procedure records. Chi-square test was used to statistically analyze the results. The level of significance was set at p<0.05.
