Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a well-described technique for diagnosis and treatment of hepatobiliary and pancreatic disorders. Spiral enteroscopy assisted ERCP (SE-ERCP) is a well-described technique for reaching and cannulating the ampulla and performing diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. The aim of the meta-analysis is to evaluate the procedural success rate of SE-ERCP in patients with altered upper gastrointestinal anatomy. A search was conducted in

A total of 172 SE-ERCPs were included in this analysis from five relevant studies. The pooled success rate of reaching the ampulla by spiral enteroscopy was 75%. SE-ERCP is a viable technique for diagnostic and therapeutic intervention of biliary disorders.
