REYES M, Gustavo Adolfo; CARVAJAL P, Germán David; PRIETO O, Robin Germán  and  MARTIN M, Wilmar Alfredo. A Case Report of Non-Surgical Duodenal Perforation Following ERCP. Rev Col Gastroenterol [online]. 2017, vol.32, n.3, pp.287-291. ISSN 0120-9957.

Post-ERCP duodenal perforations occur in only 0.1 to 0.6% of ERCP cases. Whether these occurrences are managed with or without surgery depends on several factors. We report the case of a woman who had a post-ERCP duodenal perforation that was conservatively managed with a fully covered self-expanding metal stent (FCSEMS) and antibiotics who did not require surgical management.

Keywords : ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography); duodenal perforation; biliary stent.
