Is one more likely to have acute pancreatitis after endoscopic ultrasound if they had AP after ERCP? Or EUS does not cause AP like ERCP?

In brief: Rare after EUS

This incidence of pancreatitis after EUS with pancreatic biopsy is reported as less than 1% making it a rare complication.
Symptomatic post-ERCP pancreatitis occurs in about 5% of people undergoing the procedure. There has not yet been a good study looking at the development of post-EUS pancreatitis in people who developed pancreatitis after ERCP.
