Generally, pancreatic polypeptide-secreting tumor of the distal pancreas (PPoma) is classified as a rare tumor, and may occur sporadically or be associated in families or with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (NEM 1). It grows slowly, reaching large dimensions at the time of diagnosis and the symptomatology is fundamentally due to the mass effect, causing either non-specific abdominal pain or symptoms suggestive of obstruction of the pancreatic or biliary duct. Therefore, when detected, they are usually malignant, with metastases mainly in the liver...

Imaging of the gallbladder has a key role in the examination of patients with abdominal pain-especially pain localized to the right upper quadrant. Pathologic conditions that affect the gallbladder include cholelithiasis and associated complications such as acute and chronic cholecystitis, choledocholithiasis, gallstone pancreatitis, and cancer. Modalities used to image the gallbladder include ultrasonography (US), computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, and nuclear scintigraphy. US is the primary imaging modality used to evaluate entities suspected of being gallbladder disease, as it is both sensitive and specific for demonstrating gallstones, biliary duct dilatation, and inflammatory features...

Choledochal cyst is a relatively rare congenital disease. The current standard treatment of choice for choledochal cyst is complete excision with Roux-en-y hepaticojejunostomy due to possible associated complications if left untreated, such as cholangitis, pancreatitis, cirrhosis, portal hypertension, and biliary malignancy. Traditionally, the resection for choledochal cyst is carried out with open surgery because of complex dissection and bilioenteric reconstruction. Recently, minimal invasive approach has gain wide interest, especially with the use of robotic surgical systems which can facilitate complex minimal access procedures...

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a common procedure of the diagnosis and treatment of biliary and pancreatic diseases. ERCP combines both endoscopic and radiologic imaging. Despite the fact that it is widely considered as relatively safe and useful procedure when performed by an experienced endoscopist, ERCP may potentially result in complications due to its invasive nature. These complications vary in severity and include post-ERCP pancreatitis, cholangitis, hemorrhage and perforations of the gastrointestinal tract...

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) continues to carry the lowest survival rates among all solid tumors. A marked resistance against available therapies, late clinical presentation and insufficient means for early diagnosis contribute to the dismal prognosis. Novel biomarkers are thus required to aid treatment decisions and improve patient outcomes. We describe here a multi-omics molecular platform that allows for the first time to simultaneously analyze miRNA and mRNA expression patterns from minimal amounts of biopsy material on a single microfluidic TaqMan Array card...

Unresectable gastrointestinal cancers, such as gastric, hepatocellular, biliary tract or pancreatic carcinomas, are often resistant to anti-cancer systemic therapies, and often recur locally or even after aggressive local therapies leading to dismal survival rates. Recent developments in oncology, have offered renewed hoped for the development of more efficacious therapies. For example, our understanding of the oncogenic drivers in carcinogenesis has increased exponentially, and may potentially allow personalization of therapy...

REVIEW
Jeffrey H Lee, Tomas DaVee
Painless jaundice is a harbinger of malignant biliary obstruction, with the majority of cases due to pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Despite advances in treatment, including improved surgical techniques and neoadjuvant (preoperative) chemotherapy, long-term survival from pancreatic cancer is rare. This lack of significant improvement in outcomes is believed to be due to multiple reasons, including the advanced stage at diagnosis and lack of an adequate biomarker for screening and early detection, prior to the onset of jaundice or epigastric pain...

A 59-year-old male patient presented with mild gallstone pancreatitis. He underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy during the same admission, where we encountered a left-sided gall bladder (GB). This was managed during laparoscopic surgery by modifying the laparoscopic port positions, and we did not encounter any other variations in the biliary anatomy. Thorough knowledge regarding anatomical variations of the GB will help in managing rare cases and avoid injuries to vital structures.
