Abstract Chronic pancreatitis is a complex and irreversible disease of the pancreas and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Nutrition deficiencies in chronic pancreatitis are common and can be atypical in nature. As such, the management of these deficiencies can be individualized for patients. The aim of this review is to discuss the components of nutrition deficiencies in chronic pancreatitis, their management, and the current areas of research that are being explored. The clinical guidelines of major national and international societies were analyzed for recommendations on the nutrition manag...

ConclusionsIn conclusion, LLPJ seems to be a safe, feasible and effective technique in patients with chronic pancreatitis. However, the number of descriptions published to date is very small, and there are no studies with high scientific evidence comparing LLPJ with open surgery or with endoscopic treatment that would allow us to draw firmer conclusions at the present time.

Conclusions Despite the common use of postoperative systemic antimicrobials, we observed no difference in the prevalence of postoperative infection, length of stay, or hospital readmission in patients receiving a contaminated islet preparation. If prophylactic antimicrobials are used, the duration should be minimized.

Abstract Functional dyspepsia (FD) is a common disease that can markedly impair the patients' quality of life. In 2016, Rome IV criteria defined the diagnosis of functional dyspepsia as requiring bothersome FD symptoms. In 2009, a new diagnosis of early chronic pancreatitis (ECP) was proposed as a new strategy to address chronic pancreatitis at the initial phase and prevent it from advancing into chronic pancreatitis. Although chronic pancreatitis was reported to be one of the causes of dyspepsia, there was scant data regarding the relationship between ECP and FD patients. Therefore, we tried to investigate differ...

Background: Abdominal pain is the most common symptom in chronic pancreatitis (CP) and has an extensive impact on patients’ lives. Quantitative sensory testing (QST) provides information on sensitivity to pain and mechanisms that can help quantify pain and guide treatment. The aims of this study were (1) to explore sensitivity to pain in patients with CP using QST and (2) to associate patient and disease characteristics with QST results. Methods: Ninety-one patients with painful CP and 28 healthy control participants completed a QST paradigm using static tests (muscle pressure stimulation and electrical skin sti...
