FREQUENCY AND CONTRIBUTING FACTORS FOR ACUTE PANCREATITIS AFTER ENDOSCOPIC RETROGRADE CHOLANGIOPANCREATOGRAPHY IN PATIENTS WITH OBSTRUCTIVE JAUNDICE

Muhammad Zubair, Ali Hyder, Asif Raza Zaidi.

Abstract
Objective: To evaluate the frequency and contributing factors for acute pancreatitis after endoscopic retrograde
cholangio-pancreatography in patients with obstructive jaundice.
Study Design: Descriptive case series.
Place and Duration of Study: A descriptive case series conducted at department of Gastroenterology, Shaikh
Zayed Hospital, Lahore in the period of six months.
Material and Methods: Two hundred and thirty patients diagnosed as having obstructive jaundice and
undergoing ERCP who fulfilled the inclusion criteria were included in the study from the outpatient and indoor
department of Gastroenterology-Hepatology Shaikh Zayed Hospital Lahore. Informed consent was taken. After
the selection of the cases, patients were evaluated for the presence or absence of contributing factors like age,
gender, cannulation attempts, cannulation time, percutaneous papillotomy, pancreatic duct contrast injection and
previous history of post ERCP pancreatitis. Data was analysed by using the statistical software for social sciences
(SPSS) version 15.
Results: In our study, mean age was 44 14.12 years. Out of 230 patients 42.17% (n=97) were male and 57.83%
(n=133) were females. Frequency of acute pancreatitis after ERCP in patients with obstructive jaundice was 4.78%
(n=11) while 95.22% (n=219) had no findings of acute pancreatitis after ERCP. Frequency of factors for acute
pancreatitis after endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography in patients with obstructive jaundice was
recorded which shows that out of 11 cases, 45.45% (n=5) were females, 36.36% (n=4) had previous history of Post
ERCP Pancreatitis, 27.27% (n=3) had >5 attempts of cannulation, 36.36% (n=4) had >5 minute time for
cannulation, 54.55% (n=6) had pre-cut papillotomy while 63.64% (n=7) had pancreatic duct contrast injection.
Conclusion: We concluded that frequency of acute pancreatitis after endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography
in patients with obstructive jaundice was found not very high in our practice. Female gender, precut
papillotomy and pancreatic duct contrast injection were the most important risk factors for the development
of acute pancreatitis.

Key words: Acute pancreatitis, Cholangiopancreatography, Obstructive jaundice, Risk factors.
