Personal experience of Partington-Rochell pancreatico-jejunal anastomosis is reported. Tweleve patients, of which 11 are currently being followed up, were operated on from 1983 to 1988. The indication for operation was a pain recalcitrant to medical therapy and a Wirsung duct that presented dilatation greater than 8 mm. Pancreatico-jejunal anastomosis was carried out in a double layer via the mucosae. This operation was associated with transdueodenal papillosphincterostomy in 2 cases, choledochoduodenostomy in 5 cases and retropancreatic detachment in 4. No operative mortality was recorded. Two years after operation, 6 patients recorded complete remission of pain, 4 presented slight painful episodes, 1 patient died.
