Endoscopic measurement of papillary sphincter zone and pancreatic main ductal pressure in patients with chronic pancreatitis.

Abstract

To determine the significance of manometric pressure of the pancreatic duct, we used a microtransducer inserted through a duodenoscope to measure pressures in the papillary sphincter zone and pancreatic main duct in 20 control subjects and 20 patients with chronic pancreatitis, and recorded the effect of exogenous glucagon or secretin.
