A retrospective study reported that the incidence of pancreaticojejunostomy stricture (PJS) was nearly 2% in pancreaticoduodenectomy, and the patients presented with intractable pain at a mean of 12 months after pancreaticojejunostomy.[3] The occurrence of a stricture is likely to induce obstructive pancreatitis in some individuals and may contribute to episodic pancreatitis events.
