The EPISOD study is a prospective, double-blind, randomized, sham-controlled, multi-center clinical trial. The EPISOD study enrolls subjects who have received a prior cholecystectomy and are diagnosed with the clinical syndrome of Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction III (SOD III) as defined by the Rome III criteria. The goal of the EPISOD study is to asses the value of endoscopic sphincterotomy as a treatment for adult subjects categorized as SOD III suffering from pain after cholecystectomy and to define the role of manometry in treating these patients.
