Splenic cysts are a rare entity in the Western population and are either true cysts (primary, 25%) or pseudocysts (secondary, 75%) complicating trauma, haemorrhage or infarction. Congenital or simple splenic cysts are the commonest primary cysts and surgery is recommended for cysts larger than 5 cm as these are prone to infection, bleeding or rupture and for symptomatic or complicated cysts. Splenic preservation techniques using the laparoscopic approach are the most prevalent. We present a case of a giant painful simple splenic cyst treated with laparoscopic de-capsulation with application of a new technique for achieving vascular control, whereby control of the splenic pedicle was achieved using a Nylon tape...

Most pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas (PDAs) show solid growth pattern, but ductal adenocarcinomas may demonstrate intratumoral cystic appearance or accompany peritumoral non-neoplastic cystic lesions, thus mimicking cystic pancreatic tumors on imaging studies. The histopathologic findings for PDA with cystic feature are divided into neoplastic and non-neoplastic cysts. Neoplastic cystic changes include large-duct type cysts (microcystic appearance), neoplastic mucin cysts (macrocystic appearance), colloid carcinomas (mucinous noncystic adenocarcinomas), and degenerative cystic change usually caused by hemorrhagic necrosis of tumor...

AIMS: Cystic lesions derived from the synovial and ligamentous structures of the spine have varied histologic appearances. Not uncommonly, there is discrepancy between the clinico-radiologic diagnosis and histology. Therefore, we sought to characterize the histologic features of tissue submitted as "synovial cysts" of the spine. METHODS: Resected specimens of the spine labeled "synovial cysts" and "lumbar cysts" were histologically evaluated and classified based on histopathologic features...

The simple bone cyst (SBC) is a benign intraosseous lesion that is considered to be a pseudocyst because the cystic cavity does not present an epithelial lining. The most accepted theory regarding its etiology is that the SBC develops when the blood clot fails to organize subsequent to bleeding caused by trauma. The SBC is asymptomatic, and therefore the diagnosis is made through routine imaging examinations. In imaging examinations, the lesion is characterized by a radiolucent, unilocular, well-delimited appearance and an irregular or scalloped contour with or without a sclerotic halo...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided transmural drainage has been increasingly utilized as a first-line therapeutic modality for drainage of pancreatic fluid collections (PFC). Recently, lumen-apposing metal stents (LAMS) have been utilized for management of PFCs. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the cumulative efficacy and safety of LAMS in the management of PFC (primary outcome). We also compared the efficacy and safety of LAMS with multiple plastic stents (MPS) in the management of PFC (secondary outcome)...

Solid pseudopapillary neoplasm (SPN) of the pancreas is considered a low-malignant neoplasm with a good prognosis. However, 5% to 15% of patients with SPNs develop metastatic disease, most commonly in the liver. Metastatic hepatic malignancies that show pseudocystic features are rare. Here we describe the case of a middle-aged female with a cystic liver metastasis from SPN. To the best of our knowledge, SPN with a single cystic liver metastasis has not been described, although these tumours frequently undergo haemorrhagic-cystic degeneration...

Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided drainage is now the treatment of choice in cases of pancreatic pseudocysts and walled-off necrosis, especially in the absence of luminal bulging and in patients with portal hypertension. Malignant refractory ascites usually heralds a poor prognosis and substantially impairs the quality of life of patients because of the symptoms experienced and the need for repeated paracentesis. EUS-guided placement of lumen-apposing, fully covered, self-expandable metal stents (FCSEMS) has been reported for the drainage of malignant ascites...

Almost all traumatic pulmonary pseudocysts (TPP), such as cavitary pulmonary lesions after blunt chest trauma, resolve spontaneously. On the contrary, secondary infection of a TPP should be considered in the presence of purulent sputum or hemosputum and a persistent cavity. We report a case of an infected TPP that was successfully treated by early surgical treatment. A 25-year-old man was transferred to our hospital with a TPP, shown by computed tomography (CT) as having a thick-walled large cavity, after the acute phase of blunt chest trauma...

RATIONALE: Pancreaticocolonic fistula (PCF) is an exceedingly rare complication of severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) and has primarily been treated surgically, but a few reported cases are successfully treated with nonsurgical methods. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 32-year-old male presented to our hospital with chief complaints of sharp and persistent left upper quadrant abdominal pain radiating to the back. DIAGNOSES: Computed tomography showed a pancreatic pseudocyst replacing a majority of the pancreatic parenchyma and PCF that formed between the pancreas and the colon...

BACKGROUND: The most widely accepted biochemical test for preoperative differentiation of mucinous from benign, nonmucinous pancreatic cysts is cyst fluid carcinoembryonic antigen. However, the diagnostic accuracy of carcinoembryonic antigen ranges from 70% to 86%. Based on previous work, we hypothesize that pancreatic cyst fluid glucose may be an attractive alternative to carcinoembryonic antigen. METHODS: Pancreatic cyst fluid was collected during endoscopic or operative intervention...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Lumen-apposing metal stents (LAMSs) are used to perform necrosectomy in walled-off necrosis (WON). Although necrosectomy is not required for pancreatic pseudocyst (PP), an increasing number of PPs are also being drained with LAMSs in view of their ease of deployment. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of using LAMSs to drain PPs. METHODS: At one tertiary center, from January 2014 to May 2016, all consecutive patients with PPs were drained by LAMSs, and the data were retrospectively reviewed...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Pseudoaneurysms of the gastroduodenal artery (GDA) are rare and mostly associated with pancreatitis. However, they can occur as a possible complication following gastric or pancreatic surgery and thus prior recognition and prompt treatment is mandatory (Lee et al., 2009 [1]). We report a case of a ruptured GDA aneurysm in a patient who underwent roux-en-y-cystojejunostomy for traumatic pancreatic pseudocyst and this has rarely been reported in the literature. Our patient presented with melena one month post operatively...

BACKGROUND: Based on reports from tertiary care centers, chronic pancreatitis (CP) is considered to be a painful and debilitating disease frequently requiring invasive interventions. Our primary aim was to assess the natural course of CP in a population-based cohort using endoscopic and surgical interventions as surrogates for disease aggressiveness. METHODS: We identified all patients (n = 89, alcoholic [ACP = 46], non-alcoholic [NACP] = 43) with newly diagnosed definite CP from Olmsted County, Minnesota between 1977 and 2006...

Most of pain-relieving agents in chronic pancreatitis are nonspecific and unpredictable. Omeprazole induces hypergastrinemia due to reduced gastric acidity. Raised serum gastrin, in turn, modulates to reduce secretin level. Secretin is responsible for secretion of almost 80 % bicarbonate-rich pancreatic juice from the ductular epithelium without affecting enzyme output. It is a prospective randomized study in patients with CT-confirmed chronic pancreatitis. The control group got the standard care and 60 mg of omeprazole twice daily was added to the test group...
