The endoscopie approach to pancreatic duct stones

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Pancreatic duct stones may complicate the course of chronic pancreatitis and be responsible for recurrent episodes of pancreatitis and/or exacerbations of abdominal pain. Endoscopie management of pancreatic duct stones with or without extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy (ESWL) is a relatively safe and effective method to treat main pancreatic duct stones in symptomatic patients. Selection of candidates most likeiy to respond to endoscopie therapy needs further evaluation. Studies comparing medical, surgical, and endoscopie treatment of pancreatic duct stones are still awaited.
