Pancreatitis

Acute pancreatitis is a very painful disorder commonly associated with disease of the gall bladder. There may be obstruction of the pancreatic duct as it enters the duodenum due to gall stone, edema, or spasm, as the pancreatic duct shares a common opening into the duodenum with the bile duct. As a result of this obstruction, bile enters the pancreatic duct and activates the digestive enzymes secreted by the pancreas, which causes the digestion of the pancreatic tissue.

SYMPTOM:

The patient usually suffers from a sudden onset of acute pain in the upper abdomen, often with nausea and vomiting. In severe cases the condition may render the patient unconscious. The pain often radiated to the back, to either shoulder, or to one or both the illiac fossae. As the destructive process of pancreas continues, the digestive enzymes will leak into the abdominal cavity and cause a chemical peritonitis.
