Endoscopic Therapy

In regard to endoscopic treatment, pancreatic stents have been used in patients with chronic pancreatitis to reduce intraductal pressure. Such interventions are quite appropriate if there is a dominant stricture or a stone within the duct. There is no good evidence that a diffusely dilated pancreatic duct without any dominant stricture will respond to stenting. The possible benefits of pancreatic ductal stent-ing must be balanced against the risk of further damage induced by the stent to the pancreatic duct and the pancreatic parenchyma. There is a chapter on endoscopic therapy (see Chapter 138,"Pancreatitis: Endoscopic Therapy").
