REVIEW
Vishal B Gohil, Jason B Klapman
Pancreas cancer is a fourth-leading cause of cancer death in the USA and its incidence is rising as the population is aging. The majority of patients present at an advanced stage due to the silent nature of the disease and treatment have focused more on palliation than curative intent. Gastroenterologists have become integral in the multidisciplinary care of these patients with a focus on providing endoscopic palliation of pancreas cancer. The three most common areas that gastroenterologists palliate endoscopically are biliary obstruction, cancer-related pain, and gastric outlet obstruction...

BACKGROUND: The direct comparison of CA19.9, circulating tumour cells (CTCs) and circulating tumour DNA (ctDNA) using endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) has never been performed for the diagnosis of solid pancreatic tumours (SPTs). METHODS: We included 68 patients with a SPT referred for EUS-FNA. CTCs were analysed using size-based platform and ctDNA using digital PCR. The sensitivity, specificity, negative and positive predictive values were evaluated for each marker and their combination...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Summarize key clinical advances in chronic pancreatitis reported in 2016. RECENT FINDINGS: Early diagnosis of chronic pancreatitis remains elusive. Recent studies suggest that endoscopic ultrasound may be less accurate than previously thought and new MRI techniques may be helpful. Genetic predisposition may independently affect the clinical course of chronic pancreatitis and the risk for pancreatic cancer. Cigarette smoking may have a greater negative impact on chronic pancreatitis than previously thought and moderate alcohol consumption may be protective...

OBJECTIVES: Recent guidelines suggest that imaging surveillance be conducted for 5 years for patients with at most one high-risk feature. If there were no significant changes, surveillance is stopped. We sought to validate this follow-up strategy. METHODS: In study 1, data were analysed for 392 patients with intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) and at most one high-risk feature who were periodically followed up for more than 1 year with imaging tests...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Little is known about development of branch duct intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (BD-IPMNs). We evaluated long-term outcomes of a large cohort of patients with BD-IPMNs to determine risk of malignancy and define a subset of low-risk BD-IPMNs. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of data from 577 patients with suspected or presumed BD-IPMN under surveillance at the Massachusetts General Hospital. Patients underwent cross-sectional imaging analysis at 3 months or later after their initial diagnosis...

OBJECTIVE: Endoscopic ultrasound-guided-fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) is an established first-line procedure in the management of solid and cystic pancreatic masses. Lymphoma is an uncommon diagnosis in EUS-FNA of the pancreas, and it is more common for such a diagnosis to be because of secondary involvement of the pancreas by a lymphoproliferative disorder than for this to represent isolated primary pancreatic lymphoma (PPL). We present the clinical, EUS and cytological features of these lesions...

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...

Pancreatic adenocarcinoma is the eighth leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide in men and ninth leading cause in women. Surgical resection offers the only chance of potential cure; however, only 9.4% of patients present at the localized, resectable stage, whereas the rest present at the locally advanced or metastatic, unresectable stages. Because of the guarded outcomes following systemic chemoradiation and the associated systemic toxicities, locoregional therapies have recently gained popularity. Various endoscopic techniques (endoscopic ultrasound [EUS]-guided ablative therapies, fine-needle instillation of antitumor agents, stereotactic body radiation therapy with EUS-guided fiducial marker placement, and EUS-guided brachytherapy) have been explored over the past several years...

Pancreatic adenocarcinoma may account for more than 80% of all pancreatic neoplasms. Occasionally, other rare tumors such as lymphoma, metastatic tumor, and solid pseudopapillary neoplasm can be considered in the differential diagnosis. We report the case of an 82-year-old man with a pancreatic solid mass. This case suggests that endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided fine-needle aspiration (FNA) with biopsy, that is, EUS-FNA is recommended in the differential diagnosis of the pancreatic solid mass apart from pancreatic adenocarcinoma...

INTRODUCTION: Endosonography guided celiac plexus neurolysis is efficacious in the management of severe pain due to advanced pancreatic cancer. Although endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) guided celiac neurolysis (CN) is mostly a safer procedure than the percutaneous posterior approach, severe complications such as paraplegia have been reported. CASE REPORT: We describe a patient with advanced adenocarcinoma of the pancreas and severe pain who developed irreversible paraplegia after EUS guided CN...

Distal malignant biliary obstruction (MBO) leads to obstructive jaundice as a result of when the bile excretion from the liver is disturbed and induces hepatic failure and sepsis, which when complicated with cholangitis, it becomes necessary to perform drainage for the MBO. For biliary drainage, we can perform a surgical bypass operation, percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD), endoscopic biliary drainage (EBD) via duodenal papilla, or endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided biliary drainage (EUS-BD), which is a transgastrointestinal biliary drainage...

Background: DNA damage accumulation has been linked to the cancer phenotype. The purpose of this study was to compare the levels of DNA base 8-hydroxy-2′-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) and C-reactive protein (CRP) inflammatory markers in healthy controls and pancreatic cancer patients from a hospital-based case-control study. Materials and Methods: Fifty-five pancreatic cancer patients and 55 healthy controls were enrolled from a pool of patients referred to the Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) center. Analysis of DNA content of peripheral blood cells was conducted for 8-OHdG with the 32P-postlabelling assay...

Pancreatic cancer (PC) is the third most common cause of cancer-related death in the United States and the 12th most common worldwide. Mortality is high, largely due to late stage of presentation and suboptimal treatment regimens. Approximately 10% of PC cases have a familial basis. The major genetic defect has yet to be identified but may be inherited by an autosomal dominant pattern with reduced penetrance. Several known hereditary syndromes or genes are associated with an increased risk of developing PC and account for approximately 2% of PCs...

BACKGROUND: Metastatic tumors to the pancreas are rarely encountered and diagnostically challenging. We aspired to determine the incidence and origin of all metastases to the pancreas at our institution, and to examine their clinicopathologic and cytomorphologic features. We also sought to ascertain the effect of endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) guidance implementation. METHODS: A search of our database was undertaken to review all pancreatic FNA and/or CNB examined from January 2000 through December 2014...

Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) has been increasingly used for the diagnosis and staging of pancreatic cancer. It has recently become the modality of choice in assessing pancreatic lesions overcoming other traditional modalities. Typically lesions located at the tail of the pancreas are best accessed through the stomach. We present a patient with pancreatic tail mass occurring in the setting of a large hiatal hernia, intrathoracic stomach, and severe lumbar levoscoliosis. Due to altered anatomy and extensive vascular connections of the mass, any surgical or radiological intervention was considered high risk for the patient...

For pancreatic solid lesions, ESGE recommends performing endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided sampling as first-line procedure when a pathological diagnosis is required. Alternatively, percutaneous sampling may be considered in metastatic disease.Strong recommendation, moderate quality evidence.In the case of negative or inconclusive results and a high degree of suspicion of malignant disease, ESGE suggests re-evaluating the pathology slides, repeating EUS-guided sampling, or surgery.Weak recommendation, low quality evidence...

We herein report a 68-year-old man with branch duct intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms of the pancreas (BD-IPMNs) involving type 1 localized autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) with normal serum IgG4 levels. Although he was referred to our medical center due to suspicion of pancreatic cancer concomitant with BD-IPMNs, endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) revealed a mass suspected of being pancreatic cancer to be type 1 AIP. Steroid administration notably reduced the mass. Although the clinical diagnosis of pancreatic masses in patients with IPMN can be occasionally challenging, performing a pathological examination by EUS-FNA may prevent unnecessary pancreatic surgery in cases of possible AIP...

Cancers of the pancreas have the poorest prognosis among all cancers, as many tumors are not detected until surgery is no longer a viable option. Surgical viability is typically determined via endoscopic ultrasound imaging. However, many patients who may be eligible for resection are not offered surgery due to diagnostic challenges in determining vascular or lymphatic invasion. In this paper, we describe the development of a dual-frequency piezoelectric transducer for rotational endoscopic imaging designed to transmit at 4 MHz and receive at 20 MHz in order to image microbubble-specific superharmonic signals...
