Fig. 1 Endoscopic therapy of pancreatic disorders. a The most common indications to intervene the pancreas endoscopically are strictures, leaks and stones. Pancreatic stents are mostly of polyethylene, but there are also varieties made of poylurethane or plytetrafluoroethylene (Teflon). Illustration: Michal Rössler.
