The purpose of this study is to compare efficacy and safety of combination of propofol and midazolam with meperidine versus midazolam and meperidine for ambulatory ERCP

Clinical Details

Official title: Efficacy and Safety Profiles of Sedation With Propofol Combined With Intravenous Midazolam and Meperidine Versus Intravenous Midazolam and Meperidine for Ambulatory Endoscopic Retrograde-cholangiopancreatography(ERCP).

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label

Primary outcome: Procedure Related Time

Secondary outcome: Cardiovascular Adverse Events.

Detailed description: ERCP is commonly done under sedation with midazolam and meperidine, however some studies showed varying outcomes of this conventional sedation for maintained sedation. Propofol is increasing used for sedation in gastrointestinal procedure owing to its rapid recovery profiles but the complications associated with propofol are not negligible. The investigators prospectively compare the efficacy, induction time, recovery time, patient satisfaction and side effect between propofol based and conventional sedations in patients undergoing ERCP.
