I have a hard time understanding how annular pancreas can cause bilious vomiting when I'm seeing many sources say it is either bilious or non-bilious.

draykid  Ok, so after doing a little research. It can cause both, but if the annular pancreas wraps around the duodenum distal to the ampulla of Vater then you get bilious obstruction. +5
