Abstract

Direct pancreatic function tests have been the mainstay for the diagnosis of pancreatic exocrine insufficiency. Due to their cumbersome nature and limited availability there is a continuous search for a rapid and inexpensive test of pancreatic function. Endoscopic approaches to evaluate pancreatic function have been assessed. This article critically reviews the current evidence related to this novel approach, outlining some elements for further refinement.
