What treatments can be done through an ercp scope?

What treatments can be done through an ercp scope?

Many: Treatment probably includes diagnosis as well as therapy. Structures can be 'illuminated', tissue can be obtained (biopsies for pathologist to examine), bleeding can be halted, stones removed, areas of narrowing opened. How's that for starters?

Do stones not show up on MRCP sometimes? Is it hard to see intrahepatic stones on MRCP? Should I have ERCP done since MRCP showed nothing?

Intrahepatic stones.: The answer mostly depends on why your doctor feels there may be Intrahepatic stones and what kind of symptoms you are having. If asymptomatic, the better answer may be to not do anything. An ERCP may show stones better than an MRCP, but the ERCP is not without the risk of potentially bad complications. Your G.I. doctor can help you balance these considerations. Good luck. ...Read more

Probably : that abbreviation probably refers to sphincter of Oddi dysfunction, type 2, which is an abnormal squeezing of the sphincter at the end of the bile duct. It sounds like your endoscopist treated it with a stent. Hopefully that will help. Good luck. ...Read more

See a liver surgeon: If a therapeutic endoscopist (specialty trained gastroenterologist in endoscopy) cannot remove the cystic duct stone (this can very difficult if the stone is lodged in the duct), then you should see a specialist in liver surgery, a hepatobiliary surgeon, who may need to take the remnant part of the cystic duct out and possibly clean out the common bile duct. ...Read more
