A wide range of enzymes was investigated following endoscopic retrograde cholangio-pancreatography (ERCP). Of the 12 enzymes studied highly significant increase of levels were seen in amylase (AML) and lipase (LIP) activities. Increase in the other 10 enzymes were slight and failed to persist for 40 hours. The incidence rate of a subclinical pancreatitis-like disorder is high, but typical acute pancreatitis is rare. Likely post-ERCP complications must not be disregarded, however, in selecting patients for ERCP.
