Pancreatic Fistulae

Part of the Medical Radiology book series (MEDRAD)


There is no evidence of the beneficial effect of radiation in the treatment of pancreatic fistulae. Spontaneous healing can occur independently or in close association with a course of irradiation. The use of radiation, thus, is unwarranted as an approach to this disorder. The so-called “experience” or “empiricism” in pancreatitis and in pancreatic fistulae is probably best related to similar impressions in the treatment of bursitis and tendinitis where critical randomized studies proved “no benefit.”
