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...

Abstract Background Painless chronic pancreatitis (CP) is a rare form of the disease. Aim To evaluate the prevalence and the characteristics of this overlooked form of pancreatitis. Methods Patients with a diagnosis of CP and absence of pain were selected, excluding patients suffering from autoimmune pancreatitis. Clinical data, imaging features, and exocrine and endocrine function were therefore analyzed. Results Among 781 patients observed between 2010 and 2016, 74 patients with painless CP (9...

Abstract Background Paraduodenal pancreatitis is a focal form of chronic pancreatitis that affects the groove area between the duodenum and the head of the pancreas. Consensus regarding surgical or nonsurgical management as the best treatment option is still lacking. Methods We retrospectively evaluated all patients managed for PP at The Pancreas Institute of the University Hospital Trust of Verona from 1990 to 2017. The outcomes of surgical vs. medical treatment with regard to pain control, qua...

Abstract Background Autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) is a well-recognized fibroinflammatory disease of the pancreas. Despite the significant number of studies published on AIP type 1 and 2, no studies have been focused on AIP type not otherwise specified (NOS) and therefore very little is known about clinical features and long-term outcomes of these patients. The aim of this study was to investigate clinical and radiological features of AIP type NOS-patients. Methods Patients classified as AIP type...

Abstract Background Pancreatico-enteric anastomosis after pancreaticoduodenectomy can be performed using either a pancreaticojejunostomy (PJ) or pancreaticogastrostomy (PG). Differences in surgical outcomes are still a matter of debate, and less is known about long-term functional outcomes. Methods Twelve years after the conclusion of a comparative study evaluating the surgical outcomes of PJ and PG (Bassi et al., Ann Surg 2005), available patients underwent morphological and functional pancreat...
