Abstract

The treatment of severe pancreatitis and its complications is rapidly evolving because of increasing clinical application of effective, minimally invasive techniques. With ongoing innovations in therapeutic endoscopy, image-guided percutaneous techniques, and minimally invasive surgery, the long-standing traditional management algorithms have recently changed. A multidisciplinary approach is necessary for the treatment of complicated inflammatory diseases of the pancreas and benign periampullary tumors. Surgeons, gastroenterologists, and therapeutic radiologists combine expertise as members of a team to offer their patients improved outcomes and faster recovery.
