BACKGROUND The Japanese difficulty scoring system (DSS) was developed to assess the difficulty of laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy (LDP). The study aimed to validate a modified DSS (mDSS) in a European high-volume center. METHODS Patients' clinical data underwent LDP for benign and malignant pancreatic lesion between September 2013 and February 2020 were reviewed. Expert laparoscopic surgeons performed the procedures. The mDSS consisted of seven variables, such as type of operation, malignancy...

PURPOSE Data regarding the clinical management and follow-up of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PanNETs) associated with Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) syndrome are limited. This study aimed to assess clinical presentation, genotype-phenotype correlations, treatment and prognosis of PanNETs in a series of VHL syndrome patients. METHODS Retrospective analysis of data of patients observed between 2005 and 2020. RESULTS Seventeen patients, including 12 probands and 5 relatives (mean age 30.8 ± 18.4; 7 m...

Abstract Background Surgical site infections are an important burden of pancreatic surgery, prolonging hospitalization and delaying adjuvant treatment. The aim of this study was to compare negative pressure wound therapy with standard sterile dressing in terms of the prevention of non–organ-space surgical site infection (superficial and deep surgical site infection) in the high-risk setting. Methods The trial was conducted at the University of Verona Hospital Trust, Verona, Italy, from July 25, ...

: MINI: The characteristics of cystic pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (cPanNENs) are largely unknown, and their clinical management remains unclear; specifically, an observational strategy for asymptomatic cPanNENs ≤2 cm has been proposed by recent guidelines, but evidence is scarce and limited to single institutional series. In this international cohort study of 263 resected cPanNENs from 16 institutions worldwide, a preoperative size >2 cm was independently associated with aggressive behav...

OBJECTIVE To assess short- and long-term outcomes including quality of life (QoL) following PE. BACKGROUND Pancreatic enucleation (PE) is deemed to preserve both the endocrine and the exocrine function while ensuring radicality. However, to assess whether this reflects an actual benefit perceived by patients, QoL has to be considered. METHODS Data from all consecutive patients undergoing PE from January 2010 to December 2019 were retrospectively analysed. Surgical outcomes were graded according ...

OBJECTIVE Recent studies have found aristaless-related homeobox gene (ARX)/pancreatic and duodenal homeobox 1 (PDX1), alpha-thalassemia/mental retardation X-linked (ATRX)/death domain-associated protein (DAXX) and alternative lengthening of telomeres (ALT) to be promising prognostic biomarkers for non-functional pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (NF-PanNETs). However, they have not been comprehensively evaluated, especially among small NF-PanNETs (≤2.0 cm). Moreover, their status in neuroendocri...

Background and Study Aims On contrast-enhanced imaging studies, nonhypovascular (i. e., isovascular and hypervascular) patterns can be observed in solid pancreatic lesions (SPLs) of different nature, prognosis, and management. We aimed to identify endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) features of nonhypovascular SPLs associated with malignancy/aggressiveness. The secondary aims were EUS tissue acquisition (EUS-TA) outcome and safety in this setting of patients. Patients and Methods This prospective observ...

Abstract Background Academic hospitals must train future surgeons, but whether residents could negatively affect the outcomes of major procedures is a matter of concern. The aim of this study is to assess if pancreatic surgery is a safe teaching model. Methods Outcomes of 1230 major pancreatic resections performed at a high-volume pancreatic teaching hospital between 2015 and 2018 were compared according to the first surgeon type, attending vs resident. Results Residents performed a selection of...

BACKGROUND Outcomes after surgery for sporadic pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (Pan-NENs) were evaluated. METHODS This multicentre study included patients who underwent radical pancreatic resection for sporadic non-functioning Pan-NENs. In survival analysis, the risk of mortality in this cohort was analysed in relation to that of the matched healthy Italian population. Relative survival (RS) was calculated as the rate between observed and expected survival. Factors related to RS were investi...

Abstract Background/objectives Studies comparing EUS-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) with EUS-guided fine-needle biopsy (EUS-FNB) for the evaluation of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs) are lacking. We aimed at comparing EUS-FNA with EUS-FNB in terms of Ki-67 proliferative index (PI) estimation capability, cellularity of the samples, and reliability of Ki-67 PI/tumor grading compared with surgical specimens. Methods Patients diagnosed with pNETs on EUS and/or surgical specimens we...
