The debate regarding the procedural volume needed for trainees to reach these quality standards has been highlighted previously in this chapter. Of note, there is a paucity of data regarding how competent trainees are as they complete fellowship and begin practice in ERCP. One very revealing study surveyed third year trainees at 155 general gastroenterology fellowship programs across the US. Among the 69 respondents, it was found that 64 % did not achieve competence defined by having 180 ERCPs, and 33 % did not feel their training was adequate; yet, 91 % planned to perform ERCP independently in practice following completion of fellowship.

Questions to ask prior to ERCP include: 1. Is this procedure justified? Is SOD suspected? If so, am I ready to use methods for pancreatitis prophylaxis (pancreatic duct stent, rectal indomethacin)? Is my patient optimized in terms of cardiopulmonary condition? Should I recommend intubation versus conscious sedation? When did the patient last eat and does the patient have a history of gastroparesis or gastric outlet obstruction? 6. What position is safest for the patient?  Is the patient of child-bearing age in which pelvic radiation protection must be ­provided?

Patients who are “high risk” benefit the most from ERCP as opposed to other noninvasive modalities. In support, the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) recommends that only patients meeting the criteria for high suspicion undergo an ERCP for choledocholithiasis since it allows for immediate diagnosis and treatment [7]. Sphincterotomy and stone extraction with or without lithotripsy can be performed using the numerous tools now available in order to relieve biliary or pancreatic ductal obstruction caused by stones.
