Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Indomethacin is a Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drug (NSAID), which is commonly used to treat fever, headaches, and bone, muscular or joint pain. It works by inhibiting the production of prostaglandins (known to cause such symptoms). It is marketed under several names, including Indocid and Arthrexin.
In our study, participants will be given an Indomethacin suppository (dose given rectally) 5 minutes before the commencement of the ERCP.
We will then be monitoring our patients for 90 minutes post procedure for symptoms, which would suggest pancreatitis (in particular abdominal pain).
Intervention code [1] 286351 0
Prevention
Comparator / control treatment
Currently there are no wide accepted methods used for the prevention of post-ERCP pancreatitis.
The control group will be using a placebo suppository (glucose).
