Medical News / DDW 2023: Direct Endoscopic Necrosectomy Significantly Improves Treatment Success in Infected Necrotizing Pancreatitis

Direct endoscopic necrosectomy at index session, as opposed to the step-up approach, for patients with infected necrotizing pancreatitis significantly reduced the number of reinterventions to obtain treatment success as well as decreased the length of hospital stay, according to data presented at Digestive Disease Week (DDW) 2023. “Endoscopic treatment is the preferred approach for management of infected necrotizing pancreatitis,” wrote Ji Young Bang, MD, Orlando Health Digestive Health Institute Center, and colleagues. “While transluminal stent placement followed by performance of direct endoscopic necrosectomy when there is no clinical improvement is a commonly practiced interventional strategy, the optimal timing to perform endoscopic debridement is unclear.” Source: MDMag.
