  • Pediatric Longitudinal Cohort Study of Chronic Pancreatitis

    open to eligible people ages up to 17 years

    The investigators will enroll a total of 860 patients under 18 years of age with ARP or CP. Included in the total are the 502 patients in the INSPPIRE 1 database who are planned to be reenrolled under this protocol over the next 4 years. Patient questionnaires and physician surveys will be applied at the time of enrollment and annually thereafter as long as possible. At the first study visit after turning 18 years of age, the patient will sign the informed consent to continue in the study. Specifically, the investigators will define the demographics of the pediatric ARP and CP cohort, describe risk factors, presence of family history of acute and chronic pancreatitis, diabetes and pancreatic cancer and assess disease burden and sequelae.

  • A Randomized Controlled Trial of IV Ketorolac to Prevent Post-ERCP Pancreatitis

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    Determine if IV ketorolac is an effective agent in the prevention of post-ERCP pancreatitis. Determine if IV ketorolac provides improved post-procedure analgesia. Determine if systemic mediators of inflammation are reduced in patients receiving IV ketorolac following ERCP.

  • SpHincterotomy for Acute Recurrent Pancreatitis

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    The purpose of this study is to determine if a procedure called Endoscopic Retrograde CholangioPancreatography (ERCP) with sphincterotomy reduces the risk of pancreatitis or the number of recurrent pancreatitis episodes in patients with pancreas divisum. ERCP with sphincterotomy is a procedure where doctors used a combination of x-rays and an endoscope (a long flexible lighted tube) to find the opening of the duct where fluid drains out of the pancreas. People who have been diagnosed with pancreas divisum, have had at least two episodes of pancreatitis, and are candidates for the ERCP with sphincterotomy procedure may be eligible to participate. Participants will be will be randomly assigned to either have the ERCP with sphincterotomy procedure, or to have a "sham" procedure. Participants will have follow up visits 30 days after the procedure, 6 months after the procedure, and continuing every 6 months until a maximum follow-up period of 48 months.
