Pancreatic duct strictures, encountered at ERCP, may contribute to chronic pain of chronic pancreatitis or flares of acute pancreatitis. Once underlying malignancy is ruled out, endoscopic therapies similar to those used in the biliary tree may be applied. This paper reviews current methods used to evaluate these strictures, and discusses management strategies available to the therapeutic endoscopist.
