Pancreatic duct stones obstruct the pancreatic ducts and aggravate clinical symptoms of chronic pancreatitis. Only isolated case reports have shown that some drugs may be useful in dissolving pancreatic duct stones. Endothelium corneum gigeriae galli is a Chinese medicine widely used to cure multifarious lithiasis and maldigestion. This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of endothelium corneum gigeriae galli oral therapy in the dissolution of stones and evaluate the improvement of clinical symptoms in patients with pancreatic duct stones.
