Extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy of pancreatic duct stones.Gastrointest Radiol. 1992 Spring; 17(2):145-7.GR
Encouraging results with extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL) for pancreatic duct stones have been reported from Europe. We present our experience with the first two North American patients, treated with excellent results in one and limited clinical improvement in the other patient at 1 year follow-up. Targeting of pancreatic duct stones was achieved with either fluoroscopy or ultrasound.
