Nowadays the availability of reliable, efficacious methods of assessing the outcome of chronic pancreatitis is mandatory, especially in view of the several new procedures developed to relieve the symptoms of the disease. Together with the traditional evaluation of postoperative morbidity and mortality and the assessment of exo/endocrine function in patient follow-up, we currently consider the patient's perception of his or her health status as a priority. This information is obtained by administering quality of life questionnaires along with reliable physical and psychometric evaluation.
