Compartment syndrome in experimental chronic obstructive pancreatitis: effect of decompressing the main pancreatic duct

The British Journal of Surgery
N D KaranjiaH A Reber


Chronic pancreatitis is characterized by persistent and severe pain, which can be relieved by decompression of the main pancreatic duct (MPD). Both ductal and interstitial pressures have been shown to be increased in chronic pancreatitis in patients. A study was carried out of pancreatic interstitial pressure and pancreatic blood flow in normal cats and those in which chronic obstructive pancreatitis had been induced 5 weeks earlier to determine the effect of decompression of the MPD. In the normal pancreas, median(interquartile range (i.q.r.)) basal interstitial pressure was 0.05(1.2) mmHg and median(i.q.r.) basal pancreatic blood flow 58.3(24.3) ml per min per 100 g. Secretory stimulation did not change the interstitial pressure significantly, but was associated with a 40 per cent increase in median(i.q.r.) blood flow to 81.8(45.8) ml per min per 100 g. In contrast, in chronic obstructive pancreatitis, the median(i.q.r.) basal interstitial pressure was 2.0(1.5) mmHg, which was significantly higher than in the normal gland, and median(i.q.r.) pancreatic blood flow was 38.3(9.8) ml per min per 100 g, significantly lower than in the normal pancreas. Furthermore, secretory stimulation was associated with a significant increase in...Continue Reading
