  • Journal of hepato-biliary-pancreatic surgery. (wikipedia.org)
  • Total pancreatectomy with islet autotransplantation for chronic pancreatitis: Do patients with prior pancreatic surgery have different outcomes? (wikipedia.org)
  • If surgery is to be performed for a mass this surgery should be done in a center with experienced pancreatic surgeons who perform many of these types of operations on a regular basis. (wikipedia.org)
  • IPMN
  • Like a main-duct IPMN, an ITPN demonstrates a dilated and irregular main pancreatic duct, but without an abundance of low attenuation mucin. (radiopaedia.org)
  • diagnosis
  • The role of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) in the diagnosis of pancreatic disease has diminished in recent years as a result of improved noninvasive and less-risky imaging techniques. (clevelandclinicmeded.com)
  • Interventional oncology procedures are generally divided between diagnostic procedures that help obtain tissue diagnosis of suspicious neoplasms and therapeutic ones that aim to cure or palliate the tumour. (wikipedia.org)
  • MRCP
  • MRCP can help distinguish the position of the cysts relative to the pancreatic duct, and direct appropriate treatment and follow-up. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cysts from 6-9 mm require a single follow-up in 2-3 years, preferably with MRCP to better evaluate the pancreatic duct. (wikipedia.org)
  • 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. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • Some patients can present with pancreatitis due to obstruction of the pancreatic duct by the mass. (clevelandclinicmeded.com)
  • 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)
  • lesions
  • The key in management of pancreatic cystic lesions is to avoid an operation in people who have "innocent" cysts while on the other hand not choosing to observe individuals with cysts that may harbor malignancy. (wikipedia.org)
  • 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)
  • PDAC
  • therefore, PDAC susceptibility variants (n = 23) from Caucasian genome-wide association studies (GWAS) were genotyped in 369 pNEN cases and 3277 controls from the PANcreatic Disease ReseArch (PANDoRA) consortium to evaluate the odds associated with pNEN risk, disease onset and tumor characteristics.
