Acute pancreatitis

Joshua G. Barton, Michael G. Sarr, Moshe Schein

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this edition, we decided to invite Drs. Sarr and Barton from the Mayo Clinic to write this chapter on the surgical management of acute pancreatitis. As the treatment of this condition has become less aggressive, increasingly non-invasive, and tailored to the individual patient, it requires a dedicated multispecialty team, which includes surgeons, radiologists, endoscopists, and intensivists. If possible, patients suffering from complications of severe pancreatitis should not be treated in community or rural hospitals but transferred to centers that can offer the best care-based on the multiple modalities of treatment mentioned by Drs. Sarr and Barton.
