Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) with sphincterotomy is commonly used in the treatment of common bile duct stones. It is widely regarded as a safe procedure, but the major complication rate approaches 10%. ERCP-related perforations occur in about 1% of patients. The objective of this film is to demonstrate how to perform the exploration of the abdominal cavity in relation to a duodenal perforation following an endoscopic retrograde common bile duct exploration because of suspected stone migration.
