The role of surgery in the treatment of acute pancreatitis has clearly changed over the years. In the 1990s a clear reduction in hospital mortality was achieved through surgery, whereas the value of surgery (open, in general) has slipped into the background due to the improvement in intensive care medicine in general and the development of minimally invasive treatment options. Nowadays, patients with acute pancreatitis are only operated on after exhaustion of intensive medical care treatment and minimally invasive interventions or when complications occur that cannot be treated in any other way (e.g. hollow organ perforation). This article provides an overview of the currently used treatment measures.
