Getting closer to the clinic and helping medical progress with science and technology


Since its introduction in the 1960s, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) has opened up new horizons for the treatment of biliary and pancreatic diseases. ERCP has become an indispensable clinical treatment in removing extrahepatic bile duct stones and relieving obstructive jaundice, and its efficacy and safety have been widely recognised. ERCP technology has been applied in China since the 1970s, with a history of more than 40 years to date, and continues to develop rapidly.

ERCP is a complex operation that requires the collaborative efforts of the surgeon, assistants and visiting nurses. In order to ensure the success rate of the procedure, shorten the operation time and reduce the incidence of complications, the operating surgeon and his assistant must receive standardised professional training. In Europe, America, Japan, and Singapore, ERCP assistants are usually professional technicians, while in China, although some endoscopy centres also use technicians as assistants, in most cases this role is still assumed by nurses in endoscopy centres.

ERCP Technical Training Course

In order to promote the clinical application of interventional medicine, so that more patients can benefit from this technology, Perlove Medical launched the “Interventional Thousand Mile Journey” series of interventional medicine training courses in 2020. After four years of continuous exploration and improvement, Perlove Medical has built a set of standardised “theoretical learning + surgical observation + practical training” comprehensive training system. 2024, Perlove Medical further opened “Interventional Thousand Miles In 2024, Perlove Medical further opened the “Thousand Mile Journey of Intervention” ERCP technology training course, aiming to improve the clinical diagnosis and treatment skills of doctors and promote the high-quality development of ERCP diagnosis and treatment technology by combining theoretical and practical teaching methods.

ERCP, the full name is Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography. It is similar in principle to gastroscopy. In layman’s terms, a duodenoscope similar to a gastroscope is inserted through the mouth and into the descending portion of the duodenum to find the duodenal papilla, which is connected to the common bile duct, through which contrast can be injected into the pancreaticobiliary duct in a retrograde direction. Under the contrast, lesions in the pancreaticobiliary duct can be observed or manipulated with instruments for further surgical treatment.

Advantages: ERCP is a minimally invasive procedure without incision, less traumatic, shorter operation time, fewer complications and much shorter hospital stay.

In the ERCP technology training course carried out by Perlove Medical, Director He Qibin of Nanjing Jiangning Hospital gave an in-depth theoretical explanation on the basic operation specification of ERCP, the latest technological progress, the prevention and treatment of complications, and the treatment strategy of difficult cases.

In response to the actual needs of front-line clinics, Perlove Medical’s ERCP technology training course also has a surgery observation session, so that participants have the opportunity to observe ERCP surgery up close, communicate with experts face-to-face to discuss difficult clinical problems, and learn advanced techniques of ERCP surgery using advanced interventional C-arm equipment.

Perlove Medical’s ERCP technology training courses not only promote the exchange of academic knowledge, but also serve as a platform for the collision and integration of new ideas, concepts and technologies. Through such training, Perlove Medical is working together with medical professionals to promote the progress of medicine and the development of health.
