Pancreas Divisum - Causes, Symptom, Pancreas Divisum Treatment

What is Pancreas Divisum

Pancreas Divisum is a congenital defect of the pancreas that causes parts of the pancreas to fail to fuse together. There are many patterns of Pancreas Divisum, and pancreatitis does not result unless there is either a narrowing of the junction with the intestine or a narrowing somewhere else in the drainage tube within the pancreas, usually at the junction point between the front and back tubes. Occasional patients may develop an abnormal "cyst-like" swelling in the center.

In Pancreas Divisum disorder the ducts of the pancreas are affected.

Causes of Pancreas Divisum

The cause of the defect is unknown. Chances of someone having pancreas divisum are believed to be 5% to 10%, but drainage is normal in most of these people without any site of blockage.

Sign and Symptoms of Pancreas Divisum

Treatment of Pancreas Divisum

If a person has symptoms with this condition or has had recurrent pancreatitis, surgical bypass or reconstruction of the malformed pancreatic ducts is indicated to relieve obstruction.

There is no known way to prevent Pancreas Divisum; it is present at birth.
