Primary Endpoint: A Case Study

Satisfactory Essays

The primary endpoint was the successful stone removal rate and the secondary endpoints were mechanical lithotripsy requirement, morbidity and mortality, ERBD requirement, and the number of ERCP sessions required for complete ductal clearance. After ERCP, all patients were observed at least for 24 hours for detection of early complications. Four hours post-ERCP serum amylase measurement was done for all cases. Routine abdominal ultrasonography and sometime abdominal CT was done for all patients with suspicious post ERCP pancreatitis. If complications arose, patients stayed in the hospital until they recovered.
