Eighteen patients with acute hemorrhagic necrotizing pancreatitis who survived from operation were followed up for 12 to 43 months. Late complications including pancreatic external fistula, pseudocyst, hyperglycemia, etc were reviewed. The pancreatic juice was collected through endoscopic cannulation. The volume and HCO3- concentration of the pancreatic juice and three kinds of pancreatic enzymes were measured. The results demonstrated that inspite of anatomic abnormality or functional impairment of the pancreas, the pancreatic insufficiency rarely manifested to be marked because of the compensative ability of the viable exocrine pancreas.
