Abstract

During ERCP for biliary indication, when a difficult bile duct (BD) cannulation occurs, with unintended access to the main pancreatic duct (PD), both double guidewire technique (DGW) and transpancreatic biliary sphincterotomy (TPBS) can be performed. We aimed to compare the technical success and adverse events (AEs) rate of these techniques.
