Learning ERCP starts with mastering the basic elements of preparation, intubation and navigational techniques. Advanced therapeutic ERCP cannot be done without proper understanding of the fundamentals. This teaching module covers the basic aspects of the procedure, laying the framework for further advanced techniques. It covers techniques and principles typically not shown in live demo presentations and should be of interest for all trainees at the start of their ERCP career.
