OBJECTIVE: The aim of this retrospective study is to evaluate the endovascular treatment of hemorrhage in the nonperioperative setting in pancreas transplant recipients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: All angiograms performed between January 1, 1999, and June 1, 2016, to treat hemorrhage after pancreatic transplant at a single large-volume transplant center were reviewed. Fourteen patients who underwent 21 angiograms were identified. The patients' charts were reviewed for clinical indications, technical aspects of the endovascular interventions, outcomes, and complications...

Wen-Chi Foo, Grant Harrison, Xuefeng Zhang
BACKGROUND: Solid pseudopapillary neoplasms (SPNs) of the pancreas are rare malignant tumors that can be sampled via endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA). Although diagnosing SPNs can be straightforward in cases with a classic morphology and a typical immunoprofile, challenges can occur with morphologic variants or limited specimens. Recently, 2 immunohistochemical stains, SRY-related high-mobility group box 11 (SOX-11) and transcription factor E3 (TFE3), have been demonstrated to be highly sensitive and specific for SPNs in pancreatic resection specimens...

BACKGROUND In the background of the well-known importance of positron-emission tomographic studies (PET) in the prediction of pancreatic oncologic problems, we designed and performed this investigation to study the link between borderline pancreatic head cancer and glucose uptake by using PET. MATERIAL AND METHODS We retrospectively investigated patients during the period of almost 4 years (May 2013 to December 2016). Patients underwent potentially curative resection for borderline exocrine pancreatic head adenocarcinoma without undergoing neoadjuvant therapy...

AIM: We aim to assess the diagnostic value of contrast-enhanced endoscopic ultrasound (CE-EUS) for pancreatic cancer and inflammatory lesions by pooling current evidence. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A systematical search of PubMed, Web of Science and the Cochrane Library was performed from inception to January 2016. Two authors independently screened and extracted detailed data from included studies. A random effect model was adopted to estimate the pooled sensitivity, specificity in order to determine the diagnostic ablitity of CE-EUS...

BACKGROUND: The role of minimally invasive approach for pancreaticoduodenectomy has not yet been well defined in Australia. We present our early experience with laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy (LPD) from Brisbane, Australia. METHODS: Retrospective review in a prospectively collected database of patients undergoing LPD between 2006 and 2016 was performed. Patients who underwent a hybrid LPD (HLPD) mobilization approach and resection followed by open reconstruction and totally LPD (TLPD) approach were included in this study...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Endoscopic ultrasound-guided transmural drainage using lumen apposing metal stents (LAMSs) is becoming a popular and promising therapeutic approach for drainage of intra-abdominal fluid collections. There has been an increasing number of studies evaluating LAMS for drainage of pancreatic pseudocysts (PP), walled-off pancreatic necrosis (WOPN), and gallbladder (GB) drainage. The aim of this meta-analysis is to analyze the literature to date regarding the clinical success, technical success, and adverse events of LAMS in treatment of pancreatic fluid collections and GB drainage...

BACKGROUND: Negative-margin status is a prognostic indicator for long-term survival following curative intent resection for pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Patients at increased risk for positive-margin resections may benefit from neoadjuvant chemotherapy prior to resection. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed preoperative computed-tomography (CT) scans in 108 consecutive patients that underwent curative intent resection for a resectable pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma from 2009 to 2016 in two academic hospitals...

BACKGROUND: Tumor invasion or adherence to the portal vein-superior mesenteric vein (PV/SMV) may be encountered during pancreatic surgery. In such cases, venous resection and reconstruction might be required for complete resection of the tumor. We report an innovative technique in which the graft for PV/SMV reconstruction was made with the falciform ligament. METHODS: Between May 2011 and July 2016, PV/SMV reconstruction with a falciform ligament graft was performed in 10 cases during pancreatectomy...

BACKGROUND: Management of patients with neuroendocrine tumors of the gastrointestinal tract or pancreas (GEP-NENs) poses diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. This study described the medico-legal claims reported to a national governmental system that oversees compensation to patients with GEP-NENs Materials and Methods: An electronic search of the Norwegian System of Compensation to Patients database was performed to identify claims evaluated between 2005-2016. The clinical information and the medico-legal evaluation were reviewed...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Few studies have reported results with pulmonary metastasectomy for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC), probably because of their extremely poor outcomes. The aim of this study was to review our institutional experience and analyze the outcomes of pulmonary metastasectomy for PDAC.

AIM: To assess the usefulness of en bloc right hemicolectomy with pancreaticoduodenectomy (RHCPD) for locally advanced right-sided colon cancer (LARCC). METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the database of Saitama Medical Center, Jichi Medical University, between January 2009 and December 2016. During this time, 299 patients underwent radical right hemicolectomy for right-sided colon cancer. Among them, 5 underwent RHCPD for LARCC with tumor infiltration to adjacent organs...

BACKGROUND: Pancreatic fistula remains a major complication after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). Re-operation is generally considered only after exhaustion of non-surgical options. A variety of pancreas-preserving operations have been proposed, but completion pancreatectomy (CP) stands out in locally complicated cases as a universal approach. This study aims to provide a qualitative synthesis of the peer-reviewed literature regarding emergency CP for post-PD pancreatic fistula. METHODS: A systematic search of PubMed and EMBASE for all studies reporting clinical outcomes for CP in the acute treatment of pancreatic fistula following PD from January 1975 until May 2016...

The role of anti-diabetic medications in pancreatic cancer remains conflicting. We carried out a systematic search of Pubmed and Embase databases for studies published before August 2016, which assessed the associations between anti-diabetic medications (metformin, sulfonylureas, thiazolidinediones and insulin) intake and pancreatic cancer prognosis. Hazard ratios (HRs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were estimated using the random-effects model. The primary outcomes of interest were overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS)...

The objective of the present study was to perform a meta-analysis of all available studies on the effect of prophylactic ulinastatin administration on preventing post-endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) pancreatitis (PEP). The PubMed, Web of Knowledge and Chinese National Knowledge Infrastructure databases were searched to identify all relevant studies published in English or Chinese prior to April 2016. Cochrane Review Manager was used to calculate the pooled risk ratio (RR) and 95% confidence interval (CI) to determine the effect of prophylactic ulinastatin on PEP, post-ERCP hyperamylasemia (PEHA) and post-ERCP abdominal pain...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Studies reporting on function after pancreatic surgery are frequently based on diabetes history, fasting glycemia or random glycemia. The aim of this study was to investigate prospectively the evolution of pancreatic function in patients undergoing pancreaticoduodenectomy based on proper pre- and postoperative function tests. It was hypothesised that pancreatic function deteriorates after pancreaticoduodenectomy. METHODS: Between 2013 and 2016, 78 patients undergoing pancreaticoduodenectomy for oncologic indications had a prospective evaluation of their endocrine and exocrine pancreatic function...

Highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) is a systemic lethal disease of poultry caused by several subtypes of influenza A virus and classified on the basis of serologic reactions to hemagglutinin and neuraminidase surface glycoproteins. In January 2016, a novel subtype of HPAI-H7N8-was diagnosed in a commercial turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) flock in southern Indiana. Clinical signs and history included increased mortality, dyspnea, head tremors, recumbency, and somnolent or unaware birds. Postmortem examination of six recently dead birds showed red-tinged mucous in the choana and trachea and marked pulmonary edema...
