Help with pancreatic diseases
The most common diseases of the pancreas include acute and chronic inflammation, as a result of which various complications can develop. A rapid and careful diagnosis is crucial for the selection of the right therapy. Endoscopic techniques such as endosonography, which allows a high-resolution assessment of cysts or ductal changes, are primarily used for this purpose. Endosonography can also provide important information if tumor disease is suspected or suspicious changes within the pancreas are detected. In addition, ERCP offers the possibility of treating stenoses or injuries of the pancreatic duct and removing stones. If peripancreatic necrosis cavities have formed, there is the possibility of endosonographically guided clearance and repair.
