Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio-Pancreatography (ERCP) Preparation

In order for the physician to perform the Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio-Pancreatography (or ERCP), your stomach must be empty to provide the physician with a clear view.

If you are having a morning procedure, it is very important that you have nothing to eat or drink after midnight the evening before the procedure.

If you are having an afternoon procedure, you may be instructed to have an early clear liquid breakfast.

An exception to this is prescription medication. You can take these on the morning or afternoon of the exam with a few sips of water. It is especially important to take any high blood pressure or heart medication.

If you take any of the following medications, notify our office prior to the procedure, because the medicines may need to be stopped or the dosage may need to be adjusted.

  • Coumadin (Warfarin)
  • Insulin or other medication for diabetes
  • Carafate

If you have any questions about your procedure instructions, please call our Scheduling Department at 937-320-5055 Option 2.
