Background And Aims: Although single-balloon enteroscopy (SBE)-assisted or short-type SBE (short SBE)-assisted endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) has been reported as useful in patients with surgically altered anatomy, most of the studies had small sample sizes or single-center designs. This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy and factors affecting the procedure results of short SBE-assisted ERCP in patients with surgically altered anatomy.Methods: This multicenter retrospective study was conducted at 8 tertiary referral care centers in Japan.
