The surgical management of chronic pancreatitis (ductal strictures)

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Chronic pancreatitis is a lifelong illness for patients and a persistent medical challenge for the gastrointestinal physician. Most cases are induced by alcohol abuse. This leads to a process of recurrent injury, chronic fibrosis and subsequent pain, pancreatic ductal scarring, and dilatation. The surgical management of these associated complications as seen in the patient presented in this report will be discussed in the context of the current surgical literature.
