The authors' method for measurement of pancreatic blood flow using H2 gas clearance with a ductal electrode is examined. The method is used to test the hypothesis that reductions in blood flow may play a role in the pathophysiology of chronic pancreatitis. This reduction in blood flow may be important in the pathogenesis of the disease.
