Correlation of Chronic Pancreatitis Pathology Features With Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) Criteria
In this research project the investigators intend to find out if Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) criteria for diagnosing chronic pancreatitis can be correlated with pathologic characteristics of tissues taken from pancreas of patients with suspected chronic pancreatitis.
This will be a retrospective study which will examine results from biopsy specimens and endoscopic ultrasound findings in suspected chronic pancreatitis.
