BackgroundIn recent years, three national gastroenterology societies established guidelines for the diagnosis and therapy of pancreatic exocrine insufficiency (PEI). In addition, the Cochrane Collaboration issued a review.ObjectiveThe purpose of this paper is to present an overview of the recommendations and concordance between the four recent published guidelines and stimulate further discussion.MethodsA review of the Australian, German and Italian guidelines and the Cochrane review was conduct...

Context The measurement of steatorrhea in pancreatic disorders is complex and has limited diagnostic role. Fecal elastase-1 (FE-1) has been suggested as a simpler alternative to evaluate pancreatic insufficiency, but its diagnostic performance has never been compared with steatorrhea in patients with chronic pancreatitis or after pancreatic resection. Methods . The relationship between steatorrhea and FE-1 was studied in patients with suspected of malabsorption due to chronic pancreatic disorder...

s / Pancreatology 12 (2012) 502–597 525 disease were 61.4% (CI 51-70) and 24.3% (CI 16-33), respectively. Treatment-related grade 3-4 toxicity was 34.6% (CI 24-46). At restaging following neoadjuvant therapy, 67.5% of patients (CI 54-78) underwent surgery, and 80.3% of them (CI 67-88) underwent resection. R0 resections amounted to 82.1 % (CI 74-88). Estimated 1and 2-year survival probabilities after resection were 52.1% (CI 33-70) and 44.9 % (CI 21-71). Conclusion: Our data cast some concern on ...

Abstract Background The relationship between prognosis of advanced pancreatic cancer and exocrine secretion impairment is unknown. Aim To investigate a possible correlation between faecal elastase-1 value and survival in advanced pancreatic cancer. Methods 194 patients with advanced pancreatic cancer were prospectively enrolled between 2007 and 2009 and underwent faecal elastase-1 measurement. Exocrine pancreatic secretion was defined as “moderately reduced” (faecal elastase-1: 100–200 μg/g), “s...

conflicting opinions, a consensus review determined the final diagnosis. Results: Sixty-five cases were available for review. Stage 1 (n=27) yielded descriptive findings of images associated with epithelial structures, pancreatic parenchymal structures, floating structures, and unknown. Cases in Stage 2 (n=38) were reviewed blindly in a consensus fashion by 5 investigators. Due to insufficient information available for a consensus diagnosis, 7 cases were excluded. Presence of epithelial villous ...
