Abstract

Endoscopic therapy is now being utilized in the setting of recurrent acute and chronic pancreatitis. This review analyzes the current state of the art of these new applications of endoscopy. Selection of appropriate candidates for the various treatment modalities appears important for optimal results of therapy. Patients with gallstone pancreatitis, pancreas divisum, obstructing main pancreatic duct stones, and bulging pseudocysts appear to be the best candidates for endoscopic therapy.
