Acute pancreatitis (AP) is one of the common gastrointestinal diseases requiring hospitalization. Once AP develops into severe AP, the mortality markedly increases. Animal studies have confirmed that thoracic epidural analgesia (TEA) has many benefits for AP and can provide the survival rate of experimental animals. Existing clinical studies have also shown the safety and effectiveness of TEA in AP. This paper reviews the potential benefits and possible mechanisms of TEA for AP.
