Abstract

The majority of pancreatic fistulae will resolve with conservative measures, including improving pancreatic duct drainage through the ampulla, nutritional support, and somatostatin analogues. When pancreatic fistulae result from pancreatic ductal disruption and pancreatic secretions produced in a portion of the pancreas do not flow into the GI tract, operative intervention is indicated.
