Endoscopic management of local complications of chronic pancreatitis

602-609

Juan J. Vila, Federico Bolado,

Endoscopic treatment of local complications in patients with chronic pancreatitis has gained ground over the surgical alternative in the last few years. The lower aggressiveness of endoscopic treatment, as well as the possibility to use it repeatedly in high-risk patients, has favored this development. In addition, the incorporation of new, highly accurate endoscopic therapeutic options such as pancreatoscopy-guided lithotripsy and endoscopic ultrasound-guided treatments make endoscopic treatment the first choice in many cases, despite discordant data in the literature. This article reviews the endoscopic treatment of the most common local complications of chronic pancreatitis, such as pancreatolithiasis, pseudocysts, and pancreatic, biliary, and duodenal ductal stenosis.
