Guideline on the Management of Cholangitis

Guideline on the Management of Cholangitis
ASGE evidence-based guidelines are based on a comprehensive systematic review and rigorous methodology. Guideline panels consist of content experts, stakeholders from other specialties, patient representatives, and members of the ASGE Standards of Practice (SOP) Committee. Each recommendation is based on consideration of the best medical literature, the balance between risks and benefits, cost-effectiveness, patients' values, and equity. The ASGE guideline on the management of cholangitis provides an evidence-based approach for management of cholangitis. Recommendations address the modality of drainage (endoscopic vs percutaneous), timing of intervention (<48 hours="" vs="">48 hours), and extent of initial intervention (comprehensive therapy vs decompression alone). During this webinar, we will review the recommendations and discuss how to implement them into your practice.
