How to use C-arm in ERCP surgery ?


At present, the diagnosis and treatment of biliary tract diseases are still inseparable from radiographic equipment and endoscopes, from gastrointestinal machines to C-arms, from fiberoptic endoscopes to electronic endoscopes. The introduction of Perlove high-end interventional C-arm has injected brand-new vitality into the clinical research of ERCP and vigorously upgraded the new height of gastrointestinal endoscopic surgical treatment in hospitals.

What is ERCP?

Transendoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is the technique of inserting duodenoscope into the descending part of duodenum, finding the duodenal papilla, inserting contrast catheter into the opening part of the papilla from the biopsy tube, and injecting contrast agent and then taking X-rays in order to show pancreatic and biliary ducts. In just a few decades, ERCP has made great achievements in clinical practice and has become an important treatment tool for pancreaticobiliary diseases today.

Main indications: bile duct stones, bile duct stenosis and related complications caused by them, etc.
