Dig Dis 2019 Apr 8:1-4. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, Iowa City, Iowa, USA.

A santorinicele is a rare anomaly defined as focal cystic dilation of the terminal portion of the dorsal pancreatic duct at the minor papilla. Importantly this anomaly has been suggested as a possible cause of relative stenosis of the minor papilla. This anomaly has been associated with pancreatic divisum and recurrent acute pancreatitis.

Identifying Factors Predicting Response to Endoscopic Management of Chronic Pancreatitis Secondary to Pancreas Divisum.

J Gastrointest Surg 2019 Mar 18. Epub 2019 Mar 18.

Department of Surgery, University of Louisville, Louisville, KY, USA.

Introduction: Appropriately selecting patients with chronic pancreatitis associated with pancreas divisum (PD) for endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)-based therapy versus surgery remains difficult. The objective of this study was to identify factors that predict success or failure of ERCP for treatment of chronic pancreatitis in PD.

Methods: Patients undergoing ERCP for a diagnosis of PD and pancreatitis between 2008 and 2016 were identified and grouped according to whether they required one or two ERCPs or three or more ERCPs. Read More

Pancreas divisum and recurrent pancreatitis: long-term results of minor papilla sphincterotomy.

Scand J Gastroenterol 2019 Mar 17:1-6. Epub 2019 Mar 17.

a Digestive Endoscopy Unit, Policlinico Agostino Gemelli Foundation IRCCS , Rome , Italy.

Background And Aims: Pancreas divisum (PD) is the most common congenital variant of the pancreatic ductal system and a potential cause of acute recurrent pancreatitis (ARP). Endoscopic therapy is a therapeutic option for symptomatic PD, but there is limited data on long-term results. We aimed to assess the effect of minor papilla endoscopic sphincterotomy (MiES) in the setting of ARP in patients with PD. Read More

Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm of the main duct in a patient with pancreas divisum.

Rev Esp Enferm Dig 2019 Apr;111(4):322

Cirugía General, Complejo Hospitalario de Navarra.

Pancreas divisum is a congenital anomaly present in 5-10% of the population and is usually asymptomatic. Pancreatic intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMN) are mucinous cystic tumors that have malignant potential and are classified according to their location as IPMN of the main duct, branch duct or mixed type. Larger lesions and those originating in the main duct have an increased risk of malignancy. Read More

Anterograde Endoscopic Ultrasound-Guided Pancreatic Duct Drainage: A Technical Review.

Dig Dis Sci 2019 Feb 7. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

Section of Digestive Diseases, West Virginia University Medicine, PO Box 9161, One Medical Center Drive, Morgantown, WV, 26506-9161, USA.

The advancement of pancreatic endotherapy has increased the availability of minimally invasive endoscopic pancreatic ductal drainage techniques. In this regard, familiarity with endoscopic ultrasound-guided pancreatic duct drainage (EUS-PDD) is critical for treatment of obstructed pancreatic ductal systems, especially in nonsurgical candidates and in patients desiring a minimally invasive approach. Two distinct forms of EUS-PDD exist, viz. Read More

Rom J Intern Med 2018 Dec;56(4):233-242

Laboratory of Allergology and Clinical Immunology, "Nicolae Testemitanu" State University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Chisinau, Republic of Moldova.

Pancreas divisum (PD) is the most common developmental anatomic variant of pancreatic duct. The attention towards the PD has grown significantly since there are reports that this condition may cause acute relapsing pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis and chronic abdominal pain syndrome. Furthermore, over the years, there have been multiple reports of PD associated with different types of tumors. Read More

Columbia University Medical Center, 161 Fort Washington Avenue, Suite 852, New York, NY 10032, USA. Electronic address:

Patients with recurrent acute pancreatitis (RAP) have few treatment options available to them to manage their symptoms or prevent progression to chronic pancreatitis. At present, endotherapy is typically pursued as a means to achieve symptom remission and reduce rates of recurrence, hospitalization, abdominal pain, narcotic use, and surgical intervention. However, evidence that endotherapy effectively alters the natural history of disease remains limited. Read More

Assistant Clinical Professor of Internal Medicine, West Virginia University School of Medicine.

Pancreatic divisum is a condition that occurs in 4-14% of the population. Pancreatic divisum occurs in development when the ventral bud and dorsal bud of the pancreas fail to fuse. Patients with this condition are usually asymptomatic, however, 25-38% of these patients experience recurrent pancreatitis that may further progress to chronic pancreatitis. Read More

Comparison of EUS with MRCP in idiopathic acute pancreatitis: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Department of Gastroenterology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Nanchang University, Nanchang, People's Republic of China.

Background And Aims: Idiopathic acute pancreatitis (IAP) poses a diagnostic challenge for gastroenterologists, because confirmation of the disease etiology has important implications for the selection of the best possible treatment and the prevention of possible recurrence or the development of chronic pancreatitis (CP). ERCP, EUS, and MRCP typically are used to diagnose IAP when conventional radiologic methods fail. However, their exact role in the diagnosis of IAP has not yet been determined. Read More

Yield of Endoscopic Ultrasound in Children and Adolescent With Acute Recurrent Pancreatitis.

J Pediatr Gastroenterol Nutr 2018 03;66(3):461-465

Department of Pediatric Gastroenterology.

Objectives: Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is an established tool for evaluation of adults with acute recurrent pancreatitis (ARP) whereas data in pediatrics is limited.

The endoscopic ultrasound-assisted Rendez-Vous technique for treatment of recurrent pancreatitis due to pancreas divisum and ansa pancreatica.

Rev Esp Enferm Dig 2017 Nov;109(11):798-800

Gastroenterología y Hepatología, Hospital Universitario Ramón y Cajal. Universidad de Alcalá. IRICYS.

Endoscopic treatment of pancreatic ductal malformations causing recurrent acute pancreatitis, such as pancreas divisum or ansa pancreatica, is mainly based on the sphincterotomy of the minor papilla. However, the technical complexity of conventional endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is increased in patients presenting anatomical variants like these and it may be unsuccessful. We report the case of a pancreas divisum combined with ansa pancreatica and describe the cannulation and sphincterotomy of the minor papilla using an ultrasound-assisted Rendez-Vous technique.

The crossing duct sign.

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2018 Jun;43(6):1506-1507

Department of Radiology, Queen Mary Hospital, 102 Pokfulam Road, Hong Kong, Hong Kong SAR.

Pancreas divisum is a common variation in pancreatic ductal anatomy present in up to 10% of the population with variable clinical importance. The crossing duct sign refers to the appearance of dominant dorsal duct crossing the intrapancreatic common bile duct to empty into the minor papilla, best illustrated on maximum intensity projection images from MRCP.

The efficacy of endoscopic therapy for pancreas divisum: a meta-analysis.

Ann Gastroenterol 2017 12;30(5):550-558. Epub 2017 May 12.

Department of Medicine, Division of Digestive Diseases and Nutrition, University of Kentucky College of Medicine, USA.

Background: The purpose of this study was to perform a meta-analysis assessing the efficacy and predictors of success of endoscopic therapy in the management of patients with pancreas divisum.

Methods: An electronic database search (PubMed and ScienceDirect) was performed for relevant studies. Studies were selected based on predefined criteria and data were extracted on patient population, follow up, endotherapy methods, success rates and complication rates. Read More

A Rare Case of Pancreas Divisum Accompanied by Acute Pancreatitis Following Endoscopic Hemostasis for Duodenal Ulcer Bleeding.

Korean J Gastroenterol 2017 Apr;69(4):248-252

Department of Internal Medicine, Chungbuk National University Hospital, Chungbuk National University College of Medicine, Cheongju, Korea.

Peptic ulcer bleeding is treated using endoscopic hemostasis using clips or bands. Pancreas divisum (PD), a congenital anomaly of the pancreas, usually has no clinical symptoms; however, pancreatitis may occur if there are disturbances in the drainage of pancreatic secretions. We report an unusual case of PD accompanied by acute pancreatitis, following endoscopic band ligation for duodenal ulcer bleeding. Read More
