Endoscopic Surgical Procedure Clinical Trial
Sedation for Endoscopic Procedures - a Follow-up Study of Efficiency and Safety
Endoscopic procedures for biliary strictures, stenting or drainage (ERCP) and ultrasonic imaging or biopsies (EUS) are performed under sedation or anesthesia. The main purpose of the study is to evaluate aspects of procedure treatability and patients´ quality of recovery.
The main aim of this study is to evaluate the effects on treatability and procedure failur; also aspects of post-procedure quality of recovery from patients cognitive function and from the choice of sedation/anesthesia for ERCP and EUS-procedures. Before endoscopic procedures, patients do not always read the written information sent to them. That´s a problem since patients tend to be insufficient prepared for the procedures. Therefore, evaluation of patients' health literacy was performed. Patients are sedated (patient-controlled sedation or by nurse anesthetists) or in general anesthesia. No randomisation. ;
