Abstract

A reduction of pancreatic blood flow has been observed in acute and chronic pancreatitis in animal models. Most available blood flow techniques are either too invasive or impractical to carry out in humans. Since the arrival of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), our understanding and management of pancreatic disorders has gradually improved. It may now be utilized to investigate what is believed to be a very important factor in the pathogenesis of pancreatic disease and symptoms: pancreatic tissue perfusion.
