A patient with slight dilatation of the main pancreatic duct was followed-up with ultrasonography every 6 months as a high-risk case of pancreatic cancer. Twelve years later, a faint hypoechoic area 13 mm in diameter was first detected on the body of the pancreas. Contrast-enhanced ultrasonography revealed a well-demarcated hypoenhanced area 8 mm in diameter and a hyperenhanced area with an unclear margin. The former was suspected to be a small pancreatic cancer lesion, and the latter to be focal pancreatitis accompanying cancer...

The aim of the present study was to examine the utility of convex endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) for the preoperative vascular evaluation of malignant biliary tract neoplasm, by comparing EUS findings with histological findings from resected specimens. Between January 2008 and January 2016, the present study retrospectively retrieved 82 cases diagnosed with malignant biliary tract neoplasm to compare findings from convex EUS with histological findings from resected specimens. A total of four groups were defined according to the results of EUS of the hepatic artery (HA) and portal vein (PV): Group 1, hyperechoic tissue between tumor and vessel; group 2, close proximity between tumor and vessel without loss of hyperechoic tissue; group 3, tumor and vessel contiguity, with loss of hyperechoic tissue; and group 4, encasement >180°...

Hepatocellular carcinoma constitutes over 90% of the primary liver tumors, the rest being cholangiocarcinoma. It has an insidious presentation, which is responsible for the delayed presentation. Hence, the management strategy relies on screening to diagnose it an early stage for curative resection and/or treatment with local ablative techniques or chemotherapy. However, even with different screening programs, more than 60% of tumors are still detected at an advanced stage, leading to an unchanged mortality rate, thereby implying a room for improvement in the screening and diagnostic process...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Time-intensity curve (TIC) under contrast-enhanced EUS (CE-EUS) allows continuous and quantitative evaluation of targeted area in the pancreas. However, TIC is not always available and the procedure is complicated. We aimed to propose a simplified method by evaluating multiple phases of CE-EUS in the diagnosis of pancreatic solid lesions. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 210 patients with pancreatic solid lesions including 142 with pancreatic ductal cancer (PDAC), 31 with pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasm, 13 with solid pseudopapillary neoplasm and 24 with mass-forming pancreatitis who underwent CE-EUS and achieved final diagnoses...

Pancreatic cancer (PC) has a poor prognosis due to delayed diagnosis. Early diagnosis is the most important factor for improving prognosis. For early diagnosis of PC, patients with clinical manifestations suggestive of PC and high risk for developing PC need to be selected for examinations for PC. Signs suggestive of PC (e.g., symptoms, diabetes mellitus, acute pancreatitis, or abnormal results of blood examinations) should not be missed, and the details of risks for PC (e.g., familial history of PC, intraductal mucin producing neoplasm, chronic pancreatitis, hereditary pancreatitis, or life habit) should be understood...

BACKGROUND: Accurate preoperative tumor staging of gastric cancer is indispensable with expansion of indications for laparoscopic surgery and endoscopic resection. It is important to distinguish mucosal cancer (T1a) in smaller lesion and differentiate early gastric cancer (EGC) in larger lesion considering endoscopic resection indication and laparoscopic surgery indication. We evaluated the clinical outcomes of endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) for the decision of treatment strategy of gastric cancer compared with pathological staging...

Objective Autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) has been recognized as a benign disease, which that shows a prompt response to corticosteroid treatment (CST). It was previously believed to not be associated with cyst formation; however, a few cases of AIP-associated pancreatic cyst (PC) have been reported. Some cases were reported to have been effectively treated by CST, while others were refractory to CST. Many of the patients received interventional treatment. Until now, there has been no consensus on the therapeutic strategies for AIP-associated PC...

A 37-year-old man presented to our hospital for early rectal cancer accompanied by mucosal prolapse syndrome. Biopsy confirmed an adenocarcinoma, and endoscopic ultrasonography indicated proximity to the dentate line but no submucosal invasion. The tumor was removed en bloc via endoscopic submucosal dissection without complications, and its margin was free of tumor cells. The total procedure duration was 37 minutes, and the resected specimen measured 23 × 13 mm. There was no recurrence during the 3-year observation period...

AIM: Biliary lithiasis is common in most western countries. Symptomatic patients will also have choledocholithiasis in 10% of the cases. For patients with intermediate probability of CBD stones, the recommended imaging studies are endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) or MRCP. This study aims to identify early factors that can be used as predictors for the presence of CBD stones, and by that to find which patient should undergo ERCP without an early EUS. METHODS: This is a retrospective cohort study including all patients who underwent EUS for suspected choledocholithiasis at the Soroka University Medical Center (SUMC) in the years 2009-2014...

RATIONALE: Primary gastrointestinal mantle cell lymphoma is rare, and histopathological examination and specific immunohistochemical staining are still the gold standard for diagnosis. Therefore, it is necessary to find a new way to improve positive biopsy rates. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 58-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with epigastric pain, abdominal distension, nausea, and melena. Endoscopy identified submucosal neoplasms and diffuse gastrointestinal tract involvement including the esophagus...

Background/Aims: In suspected malignant biliary strictures (MBSs), the diagnostic yield of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)-based tissue sampling is limited. Transpapillary forceps biopsy (TPB) under intraductal ultrasonography (IDUS) guidance is expected to improve the diagnostic accuracy in patients with indeterminate biliary strictures. We evaluated the usefulness of IDUS-guided TPB in patients with suspected MBS. Methods: Consecutive patients with suspected MBS were prospectively enrolled in the study...

BACKGROUND: Open neoureterocystostomy is the traditional surgical treatment for primary obstructive megaureter (POM). Endoscopic balloon dilation is a new minimally invasive alternative. It has been shown to be a safe and effective endoscopic procedure over short-term follow-up; however, few studies have shown its long-term efficacy. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-term results and complications of balloon dilation for the treatment of primary obstructive megaureter in infants...

A 81-year-old woman was referred to our hospital for a stomach pain. Abdominal enhanced CT scan showed a pancreatic hypovascular tumor 10mm in size. Abnormal FDG uptake was found on the tumor at FDG/PET-CT examination. The tumor was identified also at endoscopic ultrasonography, and the endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy of this tumor gave the diagnosis of pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Under the preoperative diagnosis, laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy was performed. There were no postoperative complications...

We report a case of duodenal neuroendocrine tumor(NET)G1 resected by laparoscopic-endoscopic cooperative surgery (LECS). A 78-year-old woman underwent upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, revealing an 8 mm, rising tumor on the anterior wall of the duodenal bulb. The tumor was pathologically diagnosed as a G1 duodenal NET, by biopsy. Endoscopic ultrasonography showed the tumor might invade the submucosal layer. We performed LECS. The endoscopist marked the dissection line around the tumor and penetrated the duodenal wall...
