Incidental pancreatic cysts have been gradually more recognized in clinical practice due to an increased use of transabdominal ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). These lesions consist of inflammatory cysts (pseudocysts) and pancreatic cystic neoplasms (PCNs) which have been classified as benign, pre-malignant and malignant. The diagnosis and management strategy of incidentally discovered pancreatic cysts can be challenging as the majority of them are PCNs and CT or MRI alone may not be sufficient to provide an accurate diagnosis...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Early diagnosis of premalignant or malignant pancreatic cysts is essential to improve prognosis. Sampling of pancreatic cyst fluid by fine-needle aspiration during endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) enables cytopathological examination combined with biochemical analysis. This study aimed to provide an aid based on biological markers for the preoperative management of patients with pancreatic cysts. METHODS: Pancreatic fluids obtained by EUS-guided fine-needle aspiration from 115 patients with cystic lesions were assayed for amylase, lipase, carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), CA 19-9 and CA 72-4...

BACKGROUND: The accurate diagnosis of cystic neoplasms of the pancreas (CNP) with current diagnostic methods is limited. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided needle-based confocal laser endomicroscopy (nCLE) is a new technique which can obtain images from the cyst wall during EUS-fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA). The aim of this study was to assess the safety, feasibility, and diagnostic value of nCLE for CNP. METHODS: Patients who underwent EUS-FNA to evaluate a CNP larger than 2 cm were enrolled...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is a well-established modality in diagnosing and staging of various neoplastic and non-neoplastic lesions. Its accuracy further increases in the presence of an on-site cytopathologist. There is a paucity of data on diagnostic yield of EUS-guided fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) without an on-site cytopathologist. METHODS: Retrospective data were analyzed at SMS Medical College, Jaipur, from January 2014 to October 2015...

Specimens obtained with endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) are often tiny and fragmented leading to an inconclusive and doubtful diagnosis. To overcome the limitations of EUS-FNA in the cytological diagnosis of pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PCA), we evaluated whether quantification of the S100P protein combined with EUS-FNA reliably discriminated between PCA and benign pancreatic lesions (BPL). A high sensitivity sandwich ELISA for S100P protein was developed to aid in the detection of PCA in small samples obtained using EUS-FNA...

A preoperative diagnosis of solid pseudopapillary neoplasms (SPNs) in young male patients is difficult to achieve using radiological images. We herein present three cases of young male patients with relatively small SPNs. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) showed well-encapsulated, smooth-surfaced, heterogeneous solid lesions in all patients, and all preoperative diagnoses were achieved by EUS-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA). The final pathological diagnosis after surgery was an SPN with a Ki-67 labeling index of <2%...

In malignant biliary stricture (MBS), the diagnostic accuracy of ERCP-based tissue sampling is insufficient. EUS-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy (EUS-FNAB) is emerging as a reliable diagnostic procedure. This study aimed to evaluate the usefulness of a diagnostic approach using ERCP-guided transpapillary forceps biopsy (TPB) or EUS-FNAB according to the characteristics of suspected MBS. Consecutive patients diagnosed with suspected MBS with obstructive jaundice and/or cholangitis were enrolled prospectively...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: With increased availability of imaging technology, detection of pancreatic cystic lesions (PCLs) is on the rise. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) improves the diagnosis accuracy of PCLs. Systematic evaluation of morbidity and mortality associated with EUS-FNA for PCLs has not been performed. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of morbidity and mortality associated with EUS-FNA. METHODS: A literature search for relevant English-language articles was conducted on PubMed and EMBASE databases...

Pancreatic cancer is one of the most lethal types of malignant tumours, commonly diagnosed at an advanced stage. The only curative treatment for this fatal disease is surgery and early diagnosis is the key to a better outcome and prognosis. In this case report we present a 57-year-old woman presenting to the emergency room with abdominal pain and weight loss. Computer Tomography (CT) imaging showed a rupture of the main pancreatic duct and a peri-pancreatic fluid collection with no evidence of a pancreatic mass...

Background/Aims: The superiority of endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle biopsy (EUS-FNB) over EUS-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) remains controversial. Given the lack of studies analyzing histologic specimens acquired from EUS-FNB or EUS-FNA, we compared the proportion of the histologic core obtained from both techniques. Methods: A total of 58 consecutive patients with solid mass lesions were enrolled and randomly assigned to the EUS-FNA or EUS-FNB groups...

Pancreatic cancer (PC) is largely refractory to existing therapies used in unselected patient trials, thus emphasizing the pressing need for new approaches for patient selection in personalized medicine. KRAS mutations occur in 90% of PC patients and confer resistance to epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitors (e.g., panitumumab), suggesting that KRAS wild-type PC patients may benefit from targeted panitumumab therapy. Here, we use tumor tissue procured by endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspirate (EUS-FNA) to compare the in vivo sensitivity in patient-derived xenografts (PDXs) of KRAS wild-type and mutant PC tumors to panitumumab, and to profile the molecular signature of these tumors in patients with metastatic or localized disease...

INTRODUCTION: Pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) is a rare condition caused by mucinous adenocarcinoma cancerous cells that produce abundance of mucin or gelatinous ascites. This cancer can cause tissue fibrosis and can impair normal organ function. Diagnosis can involve multiple imaging modalities including CT scan. There have been few cases of endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) being used as a means for diagnosis of this condition. Here we report a second case of PMP with a previous history of appendectomy diagnosed with EUS guided fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy...

Pancreatic metastasis from colorectal cancer is rare, and there have been only a few reports of its preoperative diagnosis by endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) with immunohistochemical staining. We herein describe the case of a 77-year-old woman in whom a solitary mass in the pancreatic tail was detected 11 years after rectal cancer resection. The patient also had a history of pulmonary tumor resection. We performed EUS-FNA and a histopathological examination showed adenocarcinoma with CD20+, CD7-, and CDX2+ (similar to her rectal cancer)...

Initially, endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) was developed to inspect the pancreas and other organs adjacent to the gastrointestinal tract. After introduction of curvilinear-array echoendoscopes, EUS has been used for a variety of interventions in gastroenterology including fine needle aspiration, pancreatobiliary drainage, and tumor ablation. EUS-guided ablation of pancreatic cystic tumor with ethanol and with or without cytotoxic agents has been studied in many clinical trials and showed potential to become an alternative to surgery...

A 60-year-old man visited a hospital with concerns about his physical health, including weight loss, thirst, and polyuria. He was diagnosed with acute onset of diabetes, and a pancreatic head tumor was observed on imaging studies. Computed tomography(CT)indicated that the tumor infiltrated the surrounding major vessels, portal vein(PV, 360 degrees), and superior mesenteric artery(SMA, <180 degrees). Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration(EUS-FNA)was performed, and he was diagnosed with a borderline resectable(BR)clinical Stage IV a pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC)...
