Abstract

Background/Aims: Variations in pro and anti-inflammatory cytokine levels occur commonly after ERCP procedure complications, such as in post-ERCP pancreatitis. Besides, the relationship between increased cytokine levels and multidrug resistance has been shown in cholangiocarcinoma patients. Our aim was to investigate the impact of cytokine level changes on treatment strategy after uncomplicated ERCP procedures in cholangiocarcinoma patients.
