INFLAMMATION of the PANCREAS. Pancreatitis is classified as acute unless there are computed tomographic or endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatographic findings of CHRONIC PANCREATITIS (International Symposium on Acute Pancreatitis, Atlanta, 1992). The two most common forms of acute pancreatitis are ALCOHOLIC PANCREATITIS and gallstone pancreatitis.
Acute or chronic INFLAMMATION of the PANCREAS due to excessive ALCOHOL DRINKING. Alcoholic pancreatitis usually presents as an acute episode but it is a chronic progressive disease in alcoholics.
INFLAMMATION of the PANCREAS that is characterized by recurring or persistent ABDOMINAL PAIN with or without STEATORRHEA or DIABETES MELLITUS. It is characterized by the irregular destruction of the pancreatic parenchyma which may be focal, segmental, or diffuse.
Cyst-like space not lined by EPITHELIUM and contained within the PANCREAS. Pancreatic pseudocysts account for most of the cystic collections in the pancreas and are often associated with chronic PANCREATITIS.
Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency
A malabsorption condition resulting from greater than 10% reduction in the secretion of pancreatic digestive enzymes (LIPASE; PROTEASES; and AMYLASE) by the EXOCRINE PANCREAS into the DUODENUM. This condition is often associated with CYSTIC FIBROSIS and with chronic PANCREATITIS.
Pancreatic exocrine insufficiency is known to impair nutrient absorption, especially fat, but few data exist about protein absorption. We aimed to investigate this question and assess the...
This study will provide efficacy data for Creon 25000 MMS in PS patients as well as long-term safety data. During the long-term treatment with Creon 25000 nutritional parameters will be as...
Chronic pancreatitis is a progressive inflammatory disease of the pancreas that presents with abdominal pain and in late stages may cause diabetes and malnutrition. The pain may be incapac...
Chronic pancreatitis is a progressive inflammatory disease resulting in slow destruction of the pancreas. This chronic inflammation can lead to chronic abdominal pain which can last for ma...
The purpose of this study is to determine if Thalidomide (Thalomid) is effective in treating patients with chronic pancreatitis.
Chronic pancreatitis is characterized by recurrent abdominal pain due to chronic inflammation resulting in loss of exocrine and endocrine function. The main complications of chronic pancreatitis are p...
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: We review important new clinical observations in chronic pancreatitis made in the past year. RECENT FINDINGS: Cigarette smoking is a dose-dependent risk factor for acute pancreatiti...
Achieving pain relief and improving the quality of life are the main targets of treatment for patients with chronic pancreatitis. The use of total pancreatectomy to treat chronic pancreatitis is a rad...
Chronic pancreatitis is a relentlessly painful condition associated most commonly with alcoholism. Patients suffer wasting and depression as a result of chronic pain. It is important for home care cli...
