to evaluate endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) benefits in treating patients with clinical appearance of yellowish discoloration. a descriptive retrospective cross-sectional study was performed on 122 patients at Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital from January 2008 to December 2010. The main complained was yellowish discoloration of the skin. ERCPs were performed as appropriate, and then the distribution of disease entity, results of procedure and complications were noted. subjects of this study consist of 63 males (52%) and 59 females (48%), 7 patients have undergone ERCP 2 times. Data showed 63 cases (51%) were indicated by stone and 52 cases (43%) by tumor/mass and 7 cases by infection (6%). Ten out of 122 cases (7%) showed normal results. Difficult canulation was encountered in 23 cases (18%) as access to the CBD could not be obtained. From 53 cases with stone, the extraction was successful in 43 (81%) including while 12 procedures with high grade of difficult ERCP left stone remnants (23%), and the remaining 10 procedures entailed stones retention (19%). Radioopaque stones found in 2 cases (4%) and radioluscent in 51 cases (96%). Stent placement was done in CBD (30 cases, 83%), pancreatic duct (4 cases, 11%), and extraneous CBD (2 cases, 5%). Complications found 3 cases (2%) migration stent outside CBD in 2 cases, 1 case with crand radioluscentin 51 acked basket. ERCP procedure is really helpful in assisting clinicians to diagnose and manage therapeutic measures, especially in pancreaticobilliar tract disorder, while performing stone extraction and stent placement.
