Background and aim

Whilst endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is being practiced on increasingly older patients, its benefits have not been well studied. This study assessed the clinical benefit of ERCP for subjects aged 75 and over, including follow-up at 3 months of geriatric functional parameters and lifestyle.
