Abstract

Pancreas divisum patients make up a small but problematic portion of ERCP cases. Minor papilla cannulation techniques have been improved. Recurrent pancreatitis patients generally benefit from minor papilla therapy. Methods to select patients who are likely to respond to invasive therapy need refinement. Clinicians and endoscopists are strongly encouraged to be cautious and conservative with this patient group until stronger data indicate optimal management.
