Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a commonly performed procedure with both diagnostic and therapeutic indications. Following wider adoption of magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography and endoscopic ultrasound, a shift emerged toward the interventional use of ERCP. Inherent to this shift was the evolution of procedural risk profile, resulting in a greater propensity for more severe periprocedural morbidity. Because ERCPs are so ubiquitous, it is imperative for medical and surgical practitioners to posses excellent knowledge of the risks, benefits, and therapeutic/diagnostic alternatives. The intent of the current manuscript is to provide an authoritative review on the topics of ERCP-related complications, emergencies, and related subject matter. The following core competencies are addressed in this article: Patient care and procedural skills, Medical knowledge, Practice-based learning and improvement.
