Abstract

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) has played an important role in diagnosis and management of biliary disease. Traditionally, duodenal perforations, rare complication of ERCP, have been managed surgically. However, in the past decade, there were arguments for surgical and nonsurgical management of ERCP-related duodenal perforations and reports of successful conservative treatment were increasing especially in patients with old age and poor medical conditions. We experienced a case of type I duodenal perforation following ERCP treated with covered metal stent in 74 years old female with duodenal invasion by Klatskin tumor.
