In most, the etiology is recurrent biliary stones untreated or consumption of alcohol. The information we have about the RAP in our midst is scarce. AIM: To review the clinical characteristics and follow-up of a group of patients with RAP. METHODS: Clinical charts of all patients with AP admitted to our Institute from January 1, 1995 to December 31, 2005 were reviewed...

Twenty four patients with biliary pancreatitis were divided into three groups: A (18 subjects underwent surgery on the biliary tract seven days after admission to hospital when acute signs disappeared); B (3 cases were operated two months later), and C (3 patients underwent emergency surgery for acute cholescistitis with simultaneous acute pancreatitis). A cholecistectomy-choledochostomy through a Kehr tube was performed in all patients. Pressure in the main biliary duct (MBD) was measured. Only group A was significant (18 cases)...
