Páncreas anular

El páncreas anular es un aro o collar anormal de tejido pancreático que rodea al duodeno, la parte del intestino delgado que se conecta al estómago. Esta porción del páncreas puede estrechar al duodeno y bloquear o impedir el flujo de comida hacia el resto de los intestinos. Los síntomas del páncreas anular son náuseas, vómitos, sensación de llenura después de comer y problemas de alimentación en los recién nacidos. El tratamiento usual para este trastorno es la cirugía de derivación del segmento obstruido en el duodeno.
