Background & Aims The balloon evacuation test (BET) measures the time required to evacuate a balloon filled with 50 mL water; it has been incorporated into many algorithms for diagnosis of pelvic floor dyssynergia. We aimed to assess the reproducibility of the BET, determine the upper limit of normal, and assess its concordance with evaluation of pelvic floor dyssynergia by anorectal manometry (ARM) and pelvic floor surface electromyography (EMG). Methods The BET was tested in 286 consecutive pa...

ObjectivesA diagnosis of benign lesions (BLs) is reported in 5% to 21% of pancreatoduodenectomies performed for neoplasms; no data for body-tail resections are available. The aims were to investigate the frequency and characterize the BLs mimicking cancer in the head and the body-tail of the pancrea

The objective of this study was to compare the preoperative diagnosis by International Consensus Diagnostic Criteria (ICDC) with histological diagnosis in patients with focal autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) who underwent surgery.Thirty patients (type 1 AIP in 23 and type 2 AIP in 7) with a diagnosis of AIP based on histology of surgical specimens were classified according to ICDC based on their preoperative data.Pancreatic core biopsies and diagnostic steroid trial were not preoperatively performe...

Objective: To assess the prevalence of pancreatic exocrine insufficiency (PEI) inpatients with diabetes mellitus (DM). Design: Meta-analysis of prospective, observational studies that used fecal elastase-1 estimation to determine PEI in patients with DM. Data extraction: A total of 11 studies out of 1156 retrieved references, published between 2000 and 2013, fulfilled the inclusion criteria. The primary outcome measure was proportions of patients with DM and PEI. Results: Of the 2891 patients en...

Context Paraduodenal pancreatitis (PP) is a special form of chronic pancreatitis, called also groove pancreatitis or cystic dystrophy of the duodenal wall, defined on surgical specimens. Characteristic findings at CT, MR and EUS has been published. Objective to evaluate the clinical and radiological features of PP, and the clinical outcome in a mixed clinical and surgical series. Methods All patients with a final diagnosis of PP in gastroenterology unit and surgical department have been enrolled...

Context International consensus diagnostic criteria (ICDC) for autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) have been proposed to diagnose type 1 AIP, type 2 AIP and AIP not-otherwise specified (AIP-NOS). Objective The aim of this international multicenter study was to evaluate the possibility of correctly diagnosing AIP itself and its subtype by ICDC in focal AIP patients. Methods Thirty patients (type 1 AIP in 23 and type 2 AIP in 7) diagnosed as AIP based on histology of surgical specimens were classified a...

Context Chronic pancreatitis (CP) is not common in elderly people. Idiopathic senile pancreatitis (SP) was described 30 years ago, occurring over 50s, but very little information was reported since that first reported so far. Painless course, steatorrhea or diabetes, and pancreatic calcification were the clinical features. Objective This study was aimed at identifying presence and characteristics of SP in patients with CP aged >65 years. Fifty patients out of a series of 620 CP (8.1%) were ident...

Context Chronic asymptomatic pancreatic hyperenzymemia (CAPH) has been described since 1996 as a benign disease. Pathological findings at magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) with secretin stimulation (s-MRCP) have been found in 50% of CAPH subjects, but in 30% their clinical meaning remains undefined. Objective To investigate subjects with CAPH during the follow-up to assess the clinical and radiological outcome. Methods From January 2012 to March 2013, a cohort of 160 subjects pr...

Background: International consensus diagnostic criteria (ICDC) have been proposed to classify autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) in type 1, type 2, or not otherwise specified. Objective: Aim was to apply the ICDC to an Italian series of patients to evaluate the incidence and clinical profiles among different subtypes of AIP. Methods: we re-evaluated and classified 92 patients diagnosed by Verona criteria, according to the ICDC. Results: Out of 92 patients, 59 (64%) were diagnosed as type 1, 17 (18%) ...

s / Pancreatology 13 (2013) S2–S98 S10 sequenced using next generation sequencing (Illumina GAIIx) in 5 pancreatitis and 5 control patients, heterozygous for the p.N34S variant. Identified sequence variants were then filtered based on their increased frequency within chronic pancreatitis patients, revealing 7 haplotype segments. Seven variants (Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms), one selected within each haplotype segment, were then screened in 38 pancreatitis patients and 20 controls (both groups...
