Chronic pancreatitis is a long and debilitating disease characterised by recurrent abdominal pain with frequent hospital admissions and significant socioeconomic implications. All these aspects may dramatically affect the quality of life of the patients, thus influencing the appropriate treatment which ranges from a conservative approach to major pancreatic resections. The aim of this review is to focus on studies that investigated how chronic pancreatitis affects quality of life and the impact of interventional procedures.
