Background/Aims: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography with double balloon enteroscope (DBE-ERCP) in patients with altered gastrointestinal anatomy in a meta-analysis. Materials and Methods: A comprehensive literature search was conducted on PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane library covering the period from January 2001 to December 2015. Data were selected and abstracted from eligible studies and were pooled using a random-effects model. Heterogeneity was assessed using the I2 test. Results: Ten studies involving a total of 301 patients were included in the analysis. The pooled enteroscopy, diagnostic, and therapeutic success rates were 89.75% [95% confidence interval (CI): 79.65–94.30%], 79.92% (95% CI: 68.06–89.59%), and 63.55% (95% CI: 53.70–72.86%), respectively. DBE-ERCP-related complications occurred in 18 patients including perforation (5), pancreatitis (3), cholangitis (9), and bleeding (1). The incidence of DBE-ERCP-related complication was 6.27% (95% CI: 2.61–11.38%). Conclusion: Diagnostic and therapeutic DBE-ERCPs are feasible in patients with altered gastrointestinal anatomy. DBE-ERCP may be considered when pancreaticobiliary diseases occur in patients undergoing Roux-en-Y reconstruction or pancreaticoduodenectomy.
