Ayush Singhal, Michael Simmons, Zhiyong Lu
The practice of precision medicine will ultimately require databases of genes and mutations for healthcare providers to reference in order to understand the clinical implications of each patient's genetic makeup. Although the highest quality databases require manual curation, text mining tools can facilitate the curation process, increasing accuracy, coverage, and productivity. However, to date there are no available text mining tools that offer high-accuracy performance for extracting such triplets from biomedical literature...

INTRODUCTION: Percutaneous cholecystostomy (PC) is often performed for patients with acute cholecystitis who are at high risk for operative morbidity and mortality. However, the necessity for routine cholangiography following PC remains unclear. We hypothesized that routine surveillance cholangiography (RSC) following PC would provide no benefit compared to on-demand cholangiography (ODC) triggered by signs or symptoms of biliary pathology. METHODS: We performed a three-year retrospective cohort analysis of patients managed with PC for acute cholecystitis at two tertiary care hospitals...

BACKGROUND Solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas (Frantz tumor) is a rare, low-grade malignant neoplasm. Laparoscopic pancreatoduodenectomy is a good approach for tumors located in the pancreatic head. We present two successful cases in young women. CASE REPORT A 19-year-old woman was admitted to Department of Digestive Surgery due to epigastric pain, nausea, and vomiting. Computed tomography scan of the abdomen was performed, and a 3.0×2.2 cm solid tumor localized in the head of the pancreas was observed...

AIM: To identify the multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) features of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (pNETs), which correlate with tumour histology and enable preoperative grading. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-nine patients with histologically confirmed pNET who underwent preoperative contrast-enhanced MDCT were included in this study. Nineteen tumours were classified as Grade 1 (G1) and 20 as Grade 2 (G2). Histopathology slides were reviewed to assess the intratumoural microvascular density (MVD) and the amount of tumour stroma...

The aim of this study was to evaluate two research hypotheses: H0-the embryonic pancreas in grass snakes develops in the same manner as in all previously investigated amniotes (from three buds) and its topographical localization within the adult body has no relation to its development; H1-the pancreas develops in a different manner and is related to the different topography of internal organs in snakes. For the evaluation of these hypotheses we used histological methods and three-dimensional (3D) reconstructions of the position of the pancreatic buds and surrounding organs at particular developmental stages and of the final position and shape of the pancreatic gland...

Pancreatic cancer continues to have a bleak prognosis. Hardly any therapeutic advances have been made in the last few years and consequently most efforts have focused on preventing its development and on diagnosing precursor lesions. In this regard, the use of statins as a preventive factor and the implementation of screening programmes in high-risk patients are gaining ground. In the field of treatment, there is greater focus on the role of neoadjuvant therapy in pancreatic cancer and on a multimodal approach to the disease, with few advances in effective novel therapies...

Pancreas is an extremely rare abdominal localization of the solitary fibrous tumor (SFT). It usually grows asymptomatically for a long time before a diagnosis can be made on the basis of symptoms and/or mechanical complications. Due to the rarity and nonspecific clinical presentation, this entity is diagnostically challenging. We present a 47-year-old man with a history of progressive epigastric pain for the last two weeks, and jaundice, who was admitted to hospital for further investigation. Cystadenocarcinoma was suspected based on the radiologic findings, and a pancreatoduodenectomy was performed...

BACKGROUND: Most people with cystic fibrosis (80% to 90%) need pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy to prevent malnutrition. Enzyme preparations need to be taken whenever food is taken, and the dose needs to be adjusted according to the food consumed. A systematic review on the efficacy and safety of pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy is needed to guide clinical practice, as there is variability between centres with respect to assessment of pancreatic function, time of commencing treatment, dose and choice of supplements...

Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs) are rare and represent a heterogeneous disease. PNET can be functioning or non-functioning with different clinical presentations and different prognosis based on WHO and pTNM classifications. The role of imaging includes the localization of small functioning tumor, differentiation of these tumors from adenocarcinoma, identification of signs of malignancy and evaluation of extent. PNETs have a broad spectrum of appearance. On CT and MRI, most of functioning PNETs are well defined small tumors with intense and homogeneous enhancement on arterial and portal phases...

BACKGROUND: Incidental small pancreatic cystic lesions (PCLs) are often found on pre-operative imaging in patients undergoing orthotropic liver transplantation (OLT).While these are considered benign or of low malignant potential, the influence of immunosuppression after OLT may be of concern. The aim of this study was to observe the long term outcome of these small pancreatic cystic lesions (PCLs) in post OLT patients. METHODS: An institutional OLT database of 1,778 consecutive OLT patients from January 2000 to December 2010 was analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Groove pancreatitis (GP) is a focal form of chronic pancreatitis affecting the paraduodenal groove area, for which consensus on diagnosis and management is lacking. GOALS: We performed a systematic review of the literature to determine patient characteristics and imaging features of GP and to evaluate clinical outcomes after treatment. RESULTS: Eight studies were included reporting on 335 GP patients with a median age of 47 years (range, 34 to 64 y), with 90% male, 87% smokers, and 87% alcohol consumption, and 47 months (range, 15 to 122 mo) of follow-up...

Computed tomography (CT) and endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) are the two most effective techniques for the assessment of pancreatic cancers. CT has revolutionized the field of tumor imaging in pancreatic cancer and is now a well-established imaging technique for diagnosis and staging. However, EUS still plays an important role in several situations, especially when the diagnosis is uncertain or when histopathological confirmation of the lesion is needed. Similarly, regarding cystic lesions, magnetic resonance imaging and CT have very good performances but are often inadequate because the diagnosis can be difficult to establish, while the consequences for the patient are major...

REVIEW
Zhi Ven Fong, Carlos Fernández-Del Castillo
The incidence of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) of the pancreas has been rising in the past 2 decades, driven mainly by the widespread use of cross-sectional imaging. IPMNs are intraductal mucin-producing neoplasms that involve the main pancreatic duct or its side branches and lack the ovarian stroma typically seen in mucinous cystic neoplasms. The International Association of Pancreatology released consensus guidelines in 2006 and 2012 providing clinical algorithms based on IPMN features and risk of malignancy...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: To assess the expression levels of cathepsins in malignant and premalignant lesions. METHODS: We retrospectively included patients who underwent pancreatic surgery on pancreatic solid or cystic masses. The expression of cathepsin H, L, B and S was determined in both types of samples. Lesions were divided into three categories: malignant (pancreatic adenocarcinoma and malignant mucinous neoplasms), premalignant (mucinous neoplasms) and benign (other lesions)...

: Background and aims: Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided needle-based Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy (nCLE) characteristics of pancreatic cystic lesions (PCLs) have been identified in studies where the gold standard surgical histopathology was available in a minority of patients. There are diverging reports of interobserver agreement (IOA) and paucity of intraobserver reliability (IOR). Thus, we sought to validate current EUS-nCLE criteria of PCLs in a larger consecutive series of surgical patients...

Epithelial cyst in an intrapancreatic accessory spleen (ECIPAS) is exceedingly rare with only 57 cases reported since the first publication in 1980. Comprehensive clinical and diagnostic features remain to be clarified. We present a case of ECIPAS in a 21-year-old Philippine woman who was admitted with right upper quadrant abdominal pain. A cystic lesion in the pancreatic tail was discovered and evaluated by computed tomography and magnetic resonance images. Based on clinical and radiological features a solid pseudopapillary neoplasm was suspected...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to compare the prevalence of cystic pancreatic lesions and their natural behavior in 2 distinct high-risk groups for developing pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC): (1) carriers of a mutation that predisposes to PDAC and (2) individuals without a known gene mutation but with a family history of PDAC (familial pancreatic cancer [FPC]). METHODS: Pancreatic surveillance by annual magnetic resonance imaging and endoscopic ultrasound was performed in individuals with an estimated lifetime risk of developing PDAC of 10% or greater...
