Abstract

20 years ago blunt pancreatic trauma was usually treated operatively. Today grade 1 and grade 2 injuries should be treated conservatively. Higher graded pancreatic ductal injuries can be managed operatively with ductal stenting and organ conservation. Pancreatic resections are not always necessary. Endoscopic transgastric drainage of persisting pancreatic pseudocysts is also successful in children.
