[Occlusion of pancreatic duct system by injection of a fast-solidifying amino acid solution (author's transl)].

Abstract

The effect of the occlusion of the pancreatic duct system with a new alcoholic solution of amino acids has been studied in animal experiments. The solution becomes solid in the duct system, is microbiologically indifferent and becomes disintegrated within 11 days. This time, however, is sufficient to keep a high-grade atrophy of the exocrine parenchyma. With this method one doesn't risk the provocation of an acute pancreatitis. The development of fistulas following exploratory excision is prevented by the filling of the duct system. The solution could be qualified for a therapeutical acceleration of the "burning-out" of the chronic pancreatitis.
