Endoscopic Treatment for Pancreatic Disease

For the diagnosis and treatment of pancreatic diseases, endoscopic procedures like endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)https://pancreas.cancersummit.org/abstract-submission.php are becoming more and more crucial. These procedures, when carried out by a qualified endoscopist, can improve pancreatic imaging resolution, provide a trustworthy diagnosis, and open the door to minimally invasive treatment options.

Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) One of the most helpful imaging procedures for detecting pancreatic cancer is endoscopic ultrasound (EUS). It produces fine-grained pictures of the pancreas and its surrounding tissues, such as the liver, blood arteries, and lymph nodes, and is an outpatient operation. High frequency soundwaves are used by EUS to produce an image of the organs. A computer generates an image by using the sound waves' echoes, which are reflected off the interior organs. An endoscope, a small, illuminated tube, is inserted during an EUS procedure through the mouth and into the duodenum and stomach. The endoscope's tip is fitted with an ultrasonic probe. Small tumours can be seen because the endoscope enables the ultrasound probe to approach very close to the pancreas and its surrounding organs. The pancreas can be checked for tumours. The treatment known as fine needle aspiration allows the doctor to biopsy a suspicious cyst or suspected tumour thanks to the real-time needle guidance offered by the EUS procedure (FNA).

Endoscopic retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) the bile and pancreatic ducts can be seen by the physician thanks to endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). The examination is typically carried out when a patient displays jaundice-related symptoms, which may be an indication that a tumour is obstructing or restricting the ducts. Similar to EUS, ERCP is an outpatient operation that uses an endoscope, which is a long, thin, illuminated tube that is passed through the mouth, stomach, and duodenum. An endoscope is used to insert a tube known as a catheter into the pancreatic and bile ducts in order to perform the surgery. After injecting dye into the ducts with the catheter, an X-ray is taken. The doctor can act if a blockage or stricture is discovered by inserting a stent into the blocked duct. A stent is a tool that aids in maintaining the duct's opening so that bile and pancreatic juices can flow normally.
