An internal pancreatic fistula involves an abnormality in the way that the pancreas communicates with organs and spaces within the body. This is usually due to a disrupted pancreatic duct or psuedocyst leakage (Ascitic or pleural fluid amylase level >1000 S units/dl and fluid protein level >3 g/dl). The study aims to report our experience with surgery for chronic pancreatitis-related pancreatic ascites and pancreatic pleural effusions.
