Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) has until now always been performed using a reusable non-sterile duodenoscope. The introduction of the new single-use disposable duodenoscope makes it possible to perform perioperative transgastric and rendezvous ERCP in an almost sterile manner. It also eliminates the risk of patient-to-patient transmission of infection in non-sterile settings. We present four patients who underwent different types of ERCP using a sterile single-use duodenoscope. This case report aims to demonstrate the use and the many potential advantages of the new disposable single-use duodenoscope in both sterile and non-sterile settings.
