Forty-one per cent of the affected respondents experienced their symptoms while performing ERCP and during other activities, and another 38% of the affected respondents were bothered by their symptoms only when performing ERCP. Three-quarters (74%) of affected respondents felt that their conditions were attributable to endoscopy and ERCP. Seventeen per cent thought that their injury was due to sports, 4% thought that their condition was due to their operating table, 4% thought that their injury was due to a pre-existing condition and 1% thought that their condition was simply a factor of age.
The majority of respondents had been afflicted with their pain symptoms within the past five years. Almost one-half (45%) of the respondents who had an injury or pain symptoms did not use any form of treatment.
