ENDOPROTHESE PANCREATIQUE: POURQUOI? COMMENT?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Placement of endoprosthesis in the biliary tree is a well-established therapeutic modality. Application of similar techniques to the pancreas are emerging. Pancreatic duct stents have been placed to seal duct disruptions, bridge dominant strictures, drain pseudocysts, treat symptomatic minor and/or major sphincter stenosis, bypass obstructing pancreatic duct stones, prevent procedure-induced pancreatitis and serve as a guide for sphincterotomy. In this review, the authors will analyze the current indications and complications associated with pancreatic duct stent therapy. Selection of appropriate candidates appears important for optimal results of therapy. However, definite recommendations are difficult to make because there are few controlled studies, follow-up in most series is brief and there are no comparison studies of endoscopic versus surgical therapy. At present, conservatism is the appropriate general rule in these therapeutic endeavours.
