The improved technique of endoscopic cannulation of the main pancreatic duct has made a collection of pure pancreatic juice possible in man2,6,7,8. We have described7 an endoscopic model for the study of the exocrine pancreatic secretion after intraduodenal stimulation with test solutions. Using a side-viewing Olympus duodenoscope (model JF B2) the main pancreatic duct was cannul-ated with the standard Olympus catheter used for endoscopic cannulation. Prior to the examination another similar catheter was attached to the outside of the duodenoscope for instillation of test solutions.
