    Symptoms include upper abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting.

    Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a condition in which excess fat is stored in your liver. This buildup of fat is not caused by heavy alcohol use. When heavy alcohol use causes fat to build up in the liver, this condition is called alcohol-associated liver disease.
    Endoscopy is a technology where a thin flexible tube with a camera enters into a person’s body through natural orifices like mouth or anus. The technology gives a minimally invasive option to diagnose and treat various gastrointestinal diseases.
    ERCP or endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography is a therapeutic endoscopy. It is a treatment modality used for treatment of bile duct and pancreatic duct diseases. Bile duct can get blocked due to stone or tumor or inflammation. This can lead to jaundice in patient. This type of jaundice is known as obstructive jaundice. In ERCP various instruments are used through endoscope to enter into bile duct and a stent is placed in the bile duct for relief of jaundice. Doctor can remove stones from bile duct or take biopsy sample s if there is a tumor inside. ERCP procedure has some complications like pancreatitis, sepsis, perforation and bleeding. ask your doctor about complications before going for the procedure.
