Endoscopic retrograde cholangio-pancreatography is the acronym for ERCP. An Ercp treatment refers to using this technology and tool to not only do accurate diagnosis, but also provide appropriate treatment, including surgical procedures. The physician would rely on ERCP in the treatment of disorders related to the bile duct, liver, gall bladder, and pancreas. During diagnosis using ERCP, the patient is normally kept in a sedated condition. The duodenoscope is the instrument that helps in performing the ercp test. One typical example for ercp surgery is the procedure used for endoscopic removal of the gall bladder, if gallstones become untreatable through other means. More technology is evolving in this field for use in treatments.
The surgical procedure using the ERCP technique can last between 30 minutes to 1 hour. Since the patient is put to sleep through sedation, he or she will have to be allowed to wake up before being discharged. In some cases, the hospital might retain the patient for a day or two under observation and then allow him or her to go home.
The ERCP based surgical procedures produce the desired results and the patient can return to normal health after a few days of the treatment.
