Treatment of pancreatitis

In ancient Greece, the doctors called the pancreatic gland as “pancreas”, which is translated into Russian as “from meat”. The role of this gland in our organism is very significant: it regulates the energy metabolism, ensures the digestion, while the gland hormones (glucagon, insulin, etc.) regulate the blood sugar level. A pancreatitis is the acute or chronic inflammation of the pancreatic gland.

CAUSES OF DISEASE

The alcohol abuse as well as different diseases of the liver and bile ducts in 97% of cases are the causes of the pancreatitis.

Other risk factors, causing the inflammation of pancreatic gland, include:

  • problems with gastrointestinal tract;
  • wounds and traumas in stomach area;
  • intake of antibiotics and other medications (furosemide, estrogen etc.);
  • hormonal disorders;
  • metabolic disorder;
  • parasites;
  • cardio-vascular diseases;
  • genetic predisposition;
  • overeating, junk food abuse;
  • neuro-psychic overexcitement etc.

SYMPTOMS OF PANCREATITIS

The main symptom of acute pancreatitis is the acute and strong girdling pain in the anticardium. The pain often may irradiate in the hypochondrium as well as in the back. The pain usually appears and grows stronger in short time after large meal and is not alleviated by any antispasmodic drugs and analgesics.

 

The other symptoms of pancreatitis are:

  • burping, nausea and vomiting;
  • bowel disorders (constipations);
  • faintness, dizziness;
  • tympanites;
  • poor appetite, weight loss;
  • high level of alpha amylase in the biochemical analysis of blood;
  • ultrasound test results – change of the form and roughness of edges of the pancreas, presence of cysts.

The pancreatitis is often accompanied by infections and cholecystitis, and in especially severe cases, the intraabdominal bleeding and peritonitis are developing.

DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT OF PANCREATITIS 

It is quite difficult to diagnose such disease, as the chronic pancreatitis, at the early stages. The laboratory analyses and different instrumental methods of examination help the gastroenterologists of Oxford Medical clinic in it:

  • blood, urine and feces analysis;
  • ultrasonography and X-ray imaging of the abdominal cavity organs;
  • gastroscopy;
  • cholecystocholangiography;
  • CT (computed tomography) scan;
  • functional tests.

The treatment of pancreatitis in Oxford Medical clinic is administered in the inpatient surgical unit. The doctors prescribe a diet, narcotic analgesics (painkilling), drips and medications, which block the activity of enzymes. In case of development of complications, the specialists resort to surgical methods of treatment of the pancreatitis, which include the lavage of abdominal cavity, in separate cases – removal of destructed tissue of the pancreas and gallbladder.

 

The treatment of chronic pancreatitis consists of:

  • adherence to strict diet;
  • intake of pain relief remedies, vitamins, enzymes;
  • timely treatment of diabetes mellitus, gallstone disease etc.
