Practical guide to the management of chronic pancreatitis

Tuesday, 21 May 2019

Chronic pancreatitis is a difficult condition to manage and the complications spill over onto several specialties, from specialist pain teams to endocrinology (brittle diabetes), rheumatology (osteoporosis) and dietetics (malnutrition). As gastroenterologists, we often have over-arching care of these patients and understanding the management of these complications as well as the closer-to-home endoscopic management (e.g. pancreatic strictures and pseudocysts), will equip us to steer their care effectively. This article covers all these topics and is an excellent update. Watch this space for a linked podcast coming soon!

A must read for endoscopy leads across the country.
