Published February 2018
This is a concise and up-to-date article discussing the key features of managing this condition. There are refreshers on fundamental basics such as appropriate fluid resuscitation, timing of imaging, antibiotic use and nutrition, as well as an update on the classification and management of complications. Look out for the linked podcast interviewing Dr Gavin Johnson about the article.
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!
Abstract submissions are welcome for consideration for BSG 2018, which will be held in Liverpool, on 4 – 7 June 2018.
