Diagnostic endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a remarkably safe procedure in experienced hands. A series of complications directly related to both the manipulation and cannulation of the ampulla of Vater, as well as consequent to medication and cardiorespiratory events, has been described. Herein we report a case of severe barotrauma complication of diagnostic endoscopic cholangiography.
