Abstract

Duodenal stenosis is a rare complication of acute pancreatitis. We present 5 cases and suggest a protocol of treatment based on intubation of the stenosis and nutritional support via nasojejunal feeding tube. This non-invasive method facilitated adequate control in 3 of the 5 cases. Total parenteral nutrition should be left for cases with severe stenosis, and surgery for those in which conservative treatment fails after a period of five weeks.
