Cannulation of the accessory papilla with dorsal pancreas ductography was accomplished in 13 of 15 consecutive cases of pancreas divisum. When routine cannulation of the main pancreatic papilla fails to produce a pancreatogram or yields only a ventral pancreas, the use of intravenous secretin and a 23-gauge needle catheter is recommended to facilitate accessory duct cannulation.
