Abstract

The authors report their experience of two cases of duodenal stenosis secondary to pancreatic fibrosis (4 reported cases since 1981), jaundice and cholostasis absent. In the first patient a Whipple procedure was performed because the pain was drug resistant and in the second a gastro-intestinal bypass was performed. In both cases surgical therapy was resolutive and the recovery of the patients was without problem with dismissal in XIX and X postoperatory day. Satisfactory was the control after a follow-up of 21 months. The authors analyzed the etiopathogenesis, the diagnostic and therapeutic treatment of chronic pancreatitis and this rare complication.
