Background: Endoscopic sphincterotomy (ES)-induced hemorrhage is a serious complication of ERCP and occurs in 1% to 2% of all procedures. A heat probe has been used effectively for many causes of GI hemorrhages. We prospectively investigated the efficacy and the safety of heat probe usage in patients with ES-induced hemorrhage.
