Abstract

The etiology and pathogenesis of pancreatitis with special reference to alcoholic pancreatitis are discussed. The physiologic rationale of vagotomy, antrectomy, and Billroth II gastroenterostomy in the treatment of alcoholic pancreatitis is presented. The results in fourteen patients treated in this manner, who have been followed for up to five years, were good in five, fairly good in six, and fair in three.
