Aim: The aim of this study was to assess clinical profile, complications, management, and outcome of postendoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) pancreatitis. Methods: In this prospective study, 1320 patients were followed for the development of post-ERCP pancreatitis. Post-ERCP complications and outcome were assessed. Results: The percentage of post-ERCP pancreatitis in our patients was 5.3%. The mean age of patients with post-ERCP pancreatitis was 49.9 years. About 15.7% of the patients who developed post-ERCP pancreatitis experienced complications in the form of respiratory failure and sepsis. Conclusion: The incidence of post-ERCP pancreatitis was 5.3%. The major complications after post-ERCP pancreatitis were respiratory failure and sepsis. The outcome of post-ERCP pancreatitis was good, as there was no mortality. However, majority of patients with severe post-ERCP pancreatitis developed sepsis and received antibiotics.
