The article presents information on the success of surgical drainage in patients with distal obstruction of pancreatic duct in chronic pancreatic (CP). It is informed that 39 patients aged 18 to 80 years who had CP with distal obstruction of pancreatic duct were administered endoscopic transampullary or surgical drainage. It was found that surgical group had lower Izbicki pain scores than the endoscopic group at the end of two years. Relevant charts are also given.
