Pancreatitis clinical trials at UCSF

2 in progress, 1 open to eligible people

When your pancreas swells up, it's called pancreatitis. At UCSF, we're studying if doing an ERCP with sphincterotomy can help prevent it. This is a part of the 'SpHincterotomy for Acute Recurrent Pancreatitis' study.

Showing trials for
  • SpHincterotomy for Acute Recurrent Pancreatitis

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of this study is to determine if a procedure called Endoscopic Retrograde CholangioPancreatography (ERCP) with sphincterotomy reduces the risk of pancreatitis or the number of recurrent pancreatitis episodes in patients with pancreas divisum. ERCP with sphincterotomy is a procedure where doctors used a combination of x-rays and an endoscope (a long flexible lighted tube) to find the opening of the duct where fluid drains out of the pancreas. People who have been diagnosed with pancreas divisum, have had at least two episodes of pancreatitis, and are candidates for the ERCP with sphincterotomy procedure may be eligible to participate. Participants will be will be randomly assigned to either have the ERCP with sphincterotomy procedure, or to have a "sham" procedure. Participants will have follow up visits 30 days after the procedure, 6 months after the procedure, and continuing every 6 months until a maximum follow-up period of 48 months.
