Abstract

Chronic pancreatitis is one of the indications for pancreatic duct stenting. The success rate of endoscopic stenting of the pancreatic duct is very high (98%). Reports of percutaneous stenting of the Wirsung’s duct are very sparse. We present a case with Wirsung’s duct stenosis secondary to chronic pancreatitis, which was treated by percutaneous antegrade balloon dilatation and insertion of a plastic stent. We also report on the long-term follow-up of this patient.
