Abstract

The last decade has seen a dramatic paradigm shift for the treatment of pancreatitis and its related complications away from surgery to minimally invasive endoscopic approaches. In this review, we provide an overview of the indications, techniques and outcomes of endoscopic interventions in the management of acute and chronic pancreatitis. Emphasis is placed on drainage of pancreatic pseudocysts and treatment of pain in chronic pancreatitis.
