  • endocrine
  • A 36-amino acid pancreatic hormone that is secreted mainly by endocrine cells found at the periphery of the ISLETS OF LANGERHANS and adjacent to cells containing SOMATOSTATIN and GLUCAGON. (bioportfolio.com)
  • Serous cystadenomas can be further sub-typed into microcystic, oligocystic (or macrocystic), solid, mixed serous-endocrine neoplasm, and VHL-associated serous cystic neoplasm. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • This study aimed to compare perioperative outcomes of patients undergoing LE and OE and to assess the pancreatic function after LE. (sages.org)
  • The patients' demographic data, operative results, pathological reports, hospital courses, morbidity and mortality, and follow-up data (including pancreatic function) were compared between these two groups. (sages.org)
  • Chromogranin A (CgA) is a plasma biomarker widely used in the follow-up of patients with neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs). (plos.org)
  • In the attempt to identify a more reliable biomarker for NENs, we investigated, by ELISA, the circulating levels of full-length CgA (CgA 1-439 ) and of various CgA-derived fragments in 17 patients with ileal or pancreatic NENs, 10 healthy controls, and 21 healthy volunteers before and after treatment with PPIs.

  • tumours
  • Interventional oncology has developed to a separate pillar of modern oncology and it employs X-ray, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to help guide miniaturized instruments (e.g. biopsy needles, ablation electrodes, intravascular catheters) to allow targeted and precise treatment of solid tumours (also known as neoplasms) located in various organs of the human body, including but not limited to the liver, kidneys, lungs, and bones.

  • fistula
  • Mortality, morbidity (30.8% vs 38.5%, P=0.733), pancreatic fistula rates (≥grade B:15.4% vs 11.5%, P=0.777)were similar between the two groups. (sages.org)
