EXEMPT: Prospective Factors Predicting Positive Yields on Biliary Brush Cytology During Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio-Pancreatography (ERCP)


There are only 3 studies available that have tried to evaluate factors influencing the yield
of brush cytology. Two of the 3 studied one parameter. The third study, which is also the
largest, reported on 199 samples which the authors evaluated in a retrospect fashion. We
plan to conduct a larger study assessing several other factors that have not been studied
before. The study findings would help develop strategies to improve sensitivity of brush
cytology specimens. This would ultimately result in more effective use of health care
resources and improve patient outcomes.
