Abstract

We investigated the volume of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatographies (ERCPs) performed in hospitalized children in the United States using a nationwide healthcare administrative database for the years 2000 to 2009. A total of 22,153 cases of ERCP were identified: 6372 diagnostic and 17,314 therapeutic (1533 cases were recorded as undergoing both types during a single hospitalization). The number of ERCPs increased from 5337 to 6733 per year; diagnostic ERCPs decreased 43% and therapeutic increased 69% (significant decreasing trends for diagnostic and increasing for therapeutic ERCPs, P<0.001 for each analysis). Our results define a recent increase in the use of therapeutic ERCPs in hospitalized children.
