BACKGROUND: Pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) is the only chance of cure for periampullary cancers. This study aims to evaluate survival and complication rates for PD with additional vascular resection performed for local vascular involvement and compare to standard PD. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective cohort analysis of a departmental hepato-pancreatobiliary database from 2004-2014 was performed. All patients (n=92) who underwent PD without vascular resection (n=72), with venous resection (n=16), with both arterial and venous resection (n=4) were included in the study...

Small bowel tumors are rare tumors. Duodenal tumors occur more commonly compared with other small intestinal tumors. To summarize the clinicopathological features of duodenal tumors, in the present study 44 cases of duodenal tumors were collected, and the comparative clinicopathological characteristics between tumors of the ampulla and non-ampulla, the choice of treatment, and differences in the prognosis, were analyzed. The pathological type identified was predominantly adenocarcinoma; periampullary duodenal tumors were almost classifiable as adenocarcinoma in terms of their type...

Previous work demonstrated that serum metabolomics can distinguish pancreatic cancer from benign disease. However, in the clinic, non-pancreatic periampullary cancers are difficult to distinguish from pancreatic cancer. Therefore, to test the clinical utility of this technology, we determined whether any pancreatic and periampullary adenocarcinoma could be distinguished from benign masses and biliary strictures. Sera from 157 patients with malignant and benign pancreatic and periampullary lesions were analyzed using proton nuclear magnetic resonance (¹H-NMR) spectroscopy and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS)...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Endoscopic biliary drainage (EBD) is the mainstay treatment for inoperable malignant distal biliary obstruction (MDBO). Some authorities suggest that metallic stents are more cost-effective than plastic stents in patients with expected survival of at least 6 months. However, studies attempting to define the predictive factors for such survival times are limited. This study aims to develop a scoring system for predicting a survival time of <24 weeks in these patients...

Periampullary carcinoma metastases are usually located at regional nodes, adjacent organs, liver or lung. On the other hand, metastatic penile cancer is uncommon. Penile metastasis usually originates from pelvic region with prostate and bladder being the most frequent primary location. We present a very rare case of periampullary carcinoma with penile metastasis in a 49-year-old man. He initially presented with early ampullary type periampullary carcinoma and had pyloric preserving pancreatoduodenectomy and adjuvant chemotherapy...

AIMS: Surgery is the only modality that offers cure for periampullary adenocarcinoma. However, surgery alone results in failure in 60% of patients. Studies have shown some benefits of chemotherapy in node positive and higher tumor stage patients. We sought to determine the role of adjuvant chemotherapy in early tumors with uninvolved nodes. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of a prospectively maintained database of patients resected of periampullary tumors from 2007 to 2014 was performed...

Carcinoma of the ampulla of Vater associated with annular pancreas is a rare entity. Only seven cases have been reported so far in the English literature. We herein report one such case in a 42-year-lady who presented with progressively increasing jaundice and pain in the upper abdomen for past 2 months. A magnetic resonance cholangiopancreaticography (MRCP) and MRI revealed an annular pancreas with an ampullary mass and a dilated CBD. An upper gastrointestinal endoscopic biopsy from the ampullary mass revealed a moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma...

BACKGROUND: Distal cholangiocarcinomas and pancreatic cancers both arise from pancreaticobiliary epithelium. Despite their common origin, there is a possible discrepancy in outcome. We analysed the surgical, pathological and survival outcome of resected distal cholangiocarcinoma compared with pancreatic cancer. METHODS: All cases of resected distal cholangiocarcinoma and pancreatic cancer from 1998 to 2014 were extracted from our database. Outcomes were compared...

Most patients with pancreatic cancer will present with metastatic or locally advanced disease. Unfortunately, most patients with localized disease will experience recurrence even after multimodality therapy. As such, pancreatic cancer patients arrive at a common endpoint where decisions pertaining to palliative care come to the forefront. This article summarizes surgical, endoscopic, and other palliative techniques for relief of obstructive jaundice, relief of duodenal or gastric outlet obstruction, and relief of pain due to invasion of the celiac plexus...

Pancreatic adenocarcinoma is a relatively uncommon malignancy associated with a high rate of cancer-related mortality despite best efforts to perform curative surgery. Adjuvant therapy in patients after surgical resection is associated with improved overall survival. Adjuvant treatment approaches may include either chemotherapy alone or a combination of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Neoadjuvant approaches, also including either chemotherapy alone or a combination of chemotherapy and radiation therapy, are under investigation...

BACKGROUND: Long term patient-reported symptoms and quality of life (QOL) are important outcome metrics following cancer operations, but have been poorly described in patients who have previously undergone pancreatectomy. METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional survey of recurrence-free survivors of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, periampullary carcinomas, and pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors who had undergone prior pancreatectomy. QOL and symptom burden were measured using the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Hepatobiliary Questionnaire, and psychosocial distress was measured using the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Adenocarcinomas of the pancreatobiliary system are currently classified by their primary anatomical location. In particular, the pathological diagnosis of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma is still considered as a diagnosis of exclusion of metastatic adenocarcinoma. Periampullary cancers have been previously classified according to the histological type of differentiation (pancreatobiliary, intestinal), but overlapping morphological features hinder their differential diagnosis...

Microscopic residual tumor (R1) affects prognosis of resected pancreatic head cancer patients. Surgeon's ability, caseload and accuracy of pathological staging affect the rate of R1 resections. The goal of this study was to verify if a standardized histopathological workup of the specimen affects the rate of microscopic residual tumor after PD for cancer. Two groups of specimens were managed with (Group 1, Standardized Group, SG) or without (Group 2, Non Standardized Group, NSG) a standardized histopathological workup reported by the Royal College of Pathologists...

Importance: Patients with periampullary adenocarcinomas have widely variable survival. These cancers are traditionally categorized by their anatomic location of origin, namely, the duodenum, ampulla, distal common bile duct (CBD), or head of the pancreas. However, they can be alternatively subdivided histopathologically into intestinal or pancreaticobiliary (PB) types, which may more accurately estimate prognosis. Objectives: To identify factors associated with survival in patients with periampullary adenocarcinomas and to compare survival between those having intestinal-type or PB-type cancers originating from the duodenum, ampulla, or distal CBD with those having pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC)...

BACKGROUND: Stomach cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in Korea. Although the long-term survival outcome has improved, secondary primary tumors from periampullary regions are increasing inevitably and pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) following gastrectomy is challenging. This study evaluates the surgical outcomes of PD following gastrectomy and suggests the optimum method for reconstruction. METHODS: Patients who underwent curative PD with a history of gastric resection between 2005 and 2015 were assessed retrospectively...

BACKGROUND: Most pancreatoduodenectomy resections do not meet the minimum of 12 lymph nodes recommended by the American Joint Committee on Cancer for accurate staging of periampullary malignancies. The purpose of this study was to investigate factors affecting the likelihood of adequate nodal yield in pancreatoduodenectomy specimens subject to routine pathological assessment. METHODS: Six hundred sixty-two patients subject to pancreatoduodenectomy between 1990 and 2013 for pancreatic, ampullary, and common bile duct cancers were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Body composition measures may predict outcomes of cancer surgery. Whereas low muscle mass shown on preoperative computed tomography (CT) scans has been associated with worse outcomes after surgery for pancreatic cancer, less consideration has been given to low muscle attenuation, reflecting poor muscle quality. Studies relating muscle mass and muscle attenuation with outcomes for patients with periampullary, nonpancreatic cancer are lacking. METHODS: Skeletal muscle mass and attenuation were assessed in 166 consecutive patients undergoing pancreatoduodenectomy (PD) for periampullary, nonpancreatic cancer at a single center between 2000 and 2012...
