MARULANDA-FERNANDEZ,, Hernando; OTERO-REGINO, William  and  OTERO, Elder. Acute pancreatitis: A rare complication of gastrostomy due to intragastric balloon migration. Case report and literature review. Rev. colomb. Gastroenterol. [online]. 2021, vol.36, n.1, pp.81-86.  Epub Oct 21, 2021. ISSN 0120-9957.

Acute pancreatitis secondary to major papilla obstruction caused by intragastric balloon migration is one of the rare but potentially severe side effects associated with the use of percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG). To date, there are only 15 cases reported worldwide. This article presents a case that, to the best of our knowledge, is the sixteenth case reported in the international literature.

Keywords : Pancreatitis; Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG); Abdominal pain; Dysphagia.
