Patients with pancreas divisum have an increased risk of developing pancreatico-biliary neoplasms

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivista

Abstract

Pancreas divisum represents the most frequent anatomical variant of the pancreatic duct system, with a prevalence of 4–10%. This variant is due to failed fusion of the ventral and dorsal buds during embryological life. The interest in diagnosing pancreas divisum relates to its possible role in the etiology of acute pancreatitis. However, this role has been debated in the literature, with contradictory results.
