[Pancreolauryl test, glucose tolerance test and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography in the diagnosis and monitoring of chronic pancreatitis].


PMID 11785197

Abstract

Fifteen patients with chronic pancreatitis were qualified for surgical treatment on the basis of the results of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, pancreolauryl test and glucose tolerance test. Significant changes according to Cambridge scale correlated with exocrine-endocrine pancreatic failure. In patients with Wirsung duct of diameter above 6 mm Puestow operation was performed while in patients with narrow Wirsung duct resection procedures were carried out. Control examinations carried out one year after Puestow operation demonstrated in all 10 patients lack of improvement both in the exocrine and endocrine pancreatic function. In 70% of the patients after anastomotic operation and in 80% of the patients after resections, complete regression of preoperative pain was observed.
