Recurrent acute pancreatitis post pancreatic resections

In patients who underwent pancreatoduodenectomy for management of Chronic pancreatitis, early and late anastomotic failure can occur . Nevertheless, taking into consideration that most pancreatic head resections are performed for malignant disease with poor prognosis, long term pancreatico-jejunal anastomotic durability has not been well examined; similarly, the management of its stenosis has not been well assessed .
Here we present a case of a 69 years old male patient with history of chronic alcoholic pancreatitis and ampullary fibrosis managed by pancreatico-duodenectomy presenting for 10 years delayed onset of recurrent acute pancreatitis with signs of pancreatico-jejunal anastomotic stenosis, managed surgically with revision of pancreatico-jejunal anastomosis.
Our case report might hold strongly for bringing up a purposeful approach, and be an insight to take into consideration in approaching pancreatic anastomosis, especially when pancreatic resections are utilized for treating benign pathologies.
