A comparative study of standard ERCP catheter and hydrophilic guide wire in the selective cannulation of the common bile duct.
TLDR
The use of HGW, as primary technique or as a secondary technique after failure of cannulation with a standard catheter, achieves a high rate of selective CBD cannulation.
Efficacy and safety of therapeutic ERCP in patients 90 years of age and older.

Therapeutic ERCP is safe and effective for the treatment of pancreatobiliary diseases in extremely elderly patients, and advanced age per se should not impinge on decisions relating to its use.
Tannenbaum and metal stents in the palliative treatment of malignant distal bile duct obstruction: a comparative study of patency and cost effectiveness
TLDR
Metal stent placement is an effective treatment for inoperable malignant distal common bile duct obstruction, but Tannenbaum stent placements is a cost-saving strategy, as compared with metal stents, especially for patients with liver metastases and expected short survival time.
Endoscopic Mucosal Resection of Giant Laterally Spreading Tumors With Submucosal Injection of Hydroxyethyl Starch: Comparative Study With Normal Saline Solution
TLDR
HES+E injection produces a more prolonged submucosal elevation and lowers total procedure time than NS+E; however, the safety of EMR is not influenced.
Hereditary proctalgia fugax and constipation: report of a second family.
TLDR
Treating patients with hereditary proctalgia fugax with a sustained release formulation of the calcium antagonist, nifedipine, improved the quality of the patients' sleep, which had previously been very troubled because of night time attacks of anal pain.
Serum homocysteine levels in patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
TLDR
Serum HCY might represent another non-invasive marker for the assessment of NAFLD and can independently predict NASH, according to logistic regression analysis.
Treatment of complications of hepatic hydatid disease by ERCP.
TLDR
Endoscopic sphincterotomy is a safe and effective treatment for biliary complications of hepatic hydatid disease and remained asymptomatic after treatment.
Endoscopic Techniques and Management of Foreign Body Ingestion and Food Bolus Impaction in the Upper Gastrointestinal Tract: A Retrospective Analysis of 139 Cases
TLDR
Endoscopic removal of upper gastrointestinal tract foreign bodies and food bolus impaction is efficacious and safe and especially the Roth net is the best device for safe retrieval of food boluses and button disc batteries.
Increased Cerebrospinal Fluid Helicobacter Pylori Antibody in Alzheimer’s Disease
TLDR
H. pylori-specific IgG antibody levels are significantly increased inCSF and serum of AD; its titer in CSF might reflect the AD severity, thereby supporting a role for this common infection in the pathobiology of the disease.
High-dose allopurinol for prevention of post-ERCP pancreatitis: a prospective randomized double-blind controlled trial.
TLDR
The protective effect of allopurinol was also apparent in the diagnostic ERCP and the biliary sphincterotomy subgroups when the frequency of post-ERCP pancreatitis was analyzed after stratification by procedure.
