Pancreatic Insulinoma is a neuroendocrine tumor of the beta cells of the islets of Langerhans, has an incidence of 4 cases per 1 000 000 persons. We report the case of a 36-year-old woman with altered behavior associated with melancholy. Psychiatry describes an abnormal mental examination and diagnosed double depression; however, the patient had the Whipple triad and insulin/glucose ratio higher than 0.3. The insulinoma was localized by magnetic resonance imaging and treated with surgery. Insulinomas can mimic mental disorders, making early diagnosis difficult...

An 89-year-old man was referred to our hospital for treatment of hepatolithiasis causing recurrent cholangitis. He had undergone a prior Whipple procedure. Computed tomography demonstrated left-sided hepatolithiasis. First, we conducted peroral direct cholangioscopy (PDCS) using an ultraslim endoscope. Although PDCS was successfully conducted, it was unsuccessful in removing all the stones. The stones located in the B2 segment were difficult to remove because the endoscope could not be inserted deeply into this segment due to the small size of the intrahepatic bile duct...

PURPOSE: To aid prescribers in assessing a patient's risk for statin-induced myopathy (SIM), we performed a comprehensive review of currently known risk factors and calculated aggregated odds ratios for each risk factor through a meta-analysis. METHODS: This meta-analysis was done through four phases: (1) Identification of the relevant primary literature; (2) abstract screening using inclusion and exclusion criteria; (3) detailed review and data extraction; and (4) synthesis and statistical analysis...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Celiac axis stenosis (CAS) represents an uncommon and typically innocuous condition. However, when a pancreatic resection is required, a high risk for upper abdominal organs ischemia is observed. In presence of collaterals, such a risk is minimized if their preservation is realized. The aim of the present study is to systematically review the literature with the intent to address the routine management of collateral arteries in the case of CAS patients requiring pancreatoduodenectomy...

Publications are an important tool to measure one's success and achievement in academia. They can help propel a career forward and move one into a position of leadership. The overall purpose of this study was to investigate changes in bibliometric variables, authorship, and collaboration trends in the Journal of Orthopaedic Research (JOR®), since its inception in 1983. A bibliometric analysis was completed for all manuscripts meeting the inclusion criteria (638), which were published throughout the inaugural year plus one representative year of each decade...

The only way to cure the patient with adenocarcinoma of the pancreas (RT) is surgical excision of the tumor. The standard surgical treatment of resectable pancreatic carcinoma is considered the classic pancreatoduodenectomy (PD) with the Kausch- Whipple procedure, or the pylorus-preserving PD with the Traverso-Longmire method. The most difficult technically and at the same time the most important PD stage from an oncological point of view is the separation of the head of the pancreas from the superior mesenteric artery...

High temperatures associated with climate change are expected to be detrimental for aspects of plant reproduction, such as pollen viability. We hypothesized that (1) higher peak temperatures predicted with climate change would have a minimal effect on pollen viability, while high temperatures during pollen germination would negatively affect pollen viability, (2) high temperatures during pollen dispersal would facilitate acclimation to high temperatures during pollen germination, and (3) pollen from populations at sites with warmer average temperatures would be better adapted to high temperature peaks...

The process of finding new therapeutic indications for currently used drugs, defined as 'repurposing', is receiving growing attention. Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, with an original indication to prevent or cure malaria, have been successfully used to treat several infectious (HIV, Q fever, Whipple's disease, fungal infections), rheumatological (systemic lupus erythematosus, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, Sjögren's syndrome), and other immunological diseases. Indeed, they have anti-inflammatory, immunomodulating, anti-infective, antithrombotic, and metabolic effects...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: EUS-guided hepaticoenterostomy (EUS-HE) is usually reserved for palliation of malignant biliary obstruction after failed endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERC) or inaccessible biliary tree in surgically altered anatomy (SAA). We describe outcome of EUS-HE and antegrade therapy for benign biliary disease in patients with SAA. METHODS: Retrospective review of 20 consecutive patients with surgically altered anatomy and benign biliary obstruction who underwent EUS-HE performed by one endoscopist at a tertiary center over a three-year period...

Whipple's disease usually presents as chronic joint pain followed by digestive manifestations. However, many different presentations have been described in the literature. We report here the first proven case of muscular vasculitis related to Whipple's disease, associated with an expansion of circulating activated γδ T lymphocytes.

Although neurological features are commonly encountered in Whipple"s disease (WD), presentation with purely neurological patterns is uncommon. Exclusive confinement to the central nervous system (CNS) is extremely rare. In these cases, the development of an isolated cerebral mass is exceptional. In the present paper, the authors describe a case of a 68-year-old man who presented with partial seizures. The neurological examination was normal. The imaging showed a cystic lesion. This tumor-like lesion was removed by performing frontal craniotomy...

Cutaneous metastases from an adenocarcinoma of the Ampulla of Vater are very rare, with only a few cases previously reported. We present here an additional case in a 57-year-old woman who complained of a painful growth on her frontal scalp that she had noticed 4 months earlier. Her medical history included an ampullary adenocarcinoma, which was diagnosed 4 years ago, excised through a Whipple procedure, and treated using chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The scalp biopsy showed a dermal and epidermotropic well-differentiated glandular neoplasm with abundant neutrophils within the luminae of the tumoral glands...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) has been the cornerstone in the management of malignant jaundice to provide symptomatic relief and/or to allow chemotherapy. Difficult biliary cannulation or the presence of concomitant duodenal obstruction may lead to its failure. METHOD: An extensive English literature search was done via PubMed and Google Scholar to identify 13 peer-reviewed original articles. RESULTS: Of 92 patients, 98...

Chronic pancreatitis is an irreversible and progressive disorder of the pancreas characterized by inflammation, fibrosis, and scarring. Exocrine and endocrine functions are lost, often leading to chronic pain. The etiology is multifactorial, although alcoholism is the most significant risk factor in adults. The average age at diagnosis is 35 to 55 years. If chronic pancreatitis is suspected, contrast-enhanced computed tomography is the best imaging modality for diagnosis. Computed tomography may be inconclusive in early stages of the disease, so other modalities such as magnetic resonance imaging, magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography, or endoscopic ultrasonography with or without biopsy may be used...

PURPOSE: The objective of this study was to determine the safety and efficacy of percutaneous endobiliary radiofrequency ablation (ERFA) and balloon dilation for the treatment of hepaticojejunostomy (HJ) strictures resistant to surgery and/or other interventions. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eighteen patients who underwent percutaneous ERFA for HJ stricture were included. There were 10 men and 8 women with a mean age of 48.3±10.8 (SD) years (range: 33-69 years). The 18 patients had a total of 29 benign HJ strictures secondary to cholecystectomy (14 patients; 78...

Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (PNET) is slow-growing, and account only for 2% of all pancreatic primary tumors. Surgical resection is still the only curative treatment for PNET patients. Unfortunately, most of PNETs was found with unresectable multiple liver metastases and extrahepatic metastasis as their characteristics of non-functional and asymptomatic. With advances in liver surgery in these years, especially combined associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS), provide a new curative surgical treatment for PNET with liver metastases patient...
