ABSTRACT
The article presents the authors' views on a research by D.L. Cohen and colleagues that suggested higher effectiveness of surgical drainage than endoscopic one in the obstruction of pancreatic duct in chronic pancreatitis. It is viewed that clinically refractory patients may have been unintentionally allocated to the endoscopic group in the research. It is also stated that 10-French biliary stents without side holes were used for the study, which might have affected the outcome.
