|Title:||A case of acute pancreatitis and enterocutaneous fistula formation following extended right hemicolectomy.|
|Publication Title:||Journal of Surgical Case Reports|
|Abstract:||Acute pancreatitis (AP) is a rare complication in the post-operative period and the incidence following colorectal surgery is unknown. Although benign hyperamylasaemia following colonic resection is a documented phenomenon, clinically significant AP in the post-operative setting is poorly described in the literature and little is understood about the underlying pathophysiology. Additionally, while gastrointestinal fistulae are a well-recognized complication of bowel surgery, nil previous reports discuss the possible contribution of post-operative AP to their development. We present a case of AP complicated by enterocutaneous fistula following extended right hemicolectomy and describe the possible mechanisms leading to these conditions.|
