BACKGROUND Bleeding as a complication of endoscopic sphincterotomy is influenced by several factors. The objective of this study was to compare rates of bleeding after sphincterotomy performed with two different electrosurgical current generators (Valleylab SSE2L and ERBE ICC200). METHODS A total of 6179 consecutive reports of ERCP were analyzed to… CONTINUE READING
