Pancreatic dysfunction in acute pancreatitis

Andersson, Ellen LU and Andersson, Roland LU (2006) In Journal of Organ Dysfuntion 2(3). p.135-141
Abstract
In the normal setting, the release of digestive substances and hormones from the pancreas is closely regulated. However, a variety of diseases, such as acute pancreatitis (AP), may disturb this balance. A limited number of studies on exocrine function in the acute phase of pancreatitis have been performed, most of them in animals. In the convalescent phase of AP, a substantial number of patients will have abnormal results of pancreatic function tests. Many patients with AP develop temporary hyperglycemia requiring insulin treatment and some will end up requiring long-term insulin therapy. The aim of this review is to summarize current knowledge of exocrine and endocrine dysfunction of the pancreas during both the acute and recovery phases... (More)
