Abstract

Endoscopic pancreatic sphincterotomy of the major and minor papilla has expanded our approach to the management of a variety of pancreatic disorders. Analysis of the complication rates of this therapy is difficult, however, because a variety of techniques are often used in conjunction with the pancreatic sphincterotomy. This article reviews the techniques and complications of endoscopic pancreatic sphincterotomy. Based on the currently available data, it appears that the complication rates of pancreatic sphincterotomy are probably higher than those of biliary sphincterotomy. Should application of this technique become more widespread, methods to reduce the incidence of post-procedure pancreatitis will demand further investigation.
