PURPOSE Patients with fistula risk score (FRS) ≥7 are at the highest risk of developing clinically relevant post-operative pancreatic fistula (CR-POPF). There is no agreement on the management of this subpopulation. The primary outcome of the study was the definition of the role of intraoperative completion pancreatectomy (ICP) in patients at high risk for CR-POPF, as an alternative to high-risk pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). METHODS This is an observational study set in a single tertiary referra...

Abstract Background Ampullary carcinoma (AC) is histologically classified as intestinal (In-AC), pancreaticobiliary (Pb-AC) or mixed-AC. The prognostic role of AC subtypes has been debated and remains unclear. The aims of this study were to evaluate outcomes after pancreatoduodenectomy (PD) for each subtype of AC and to compare these with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma [PDAC] and distal cholangiocarcinoma [DCC]. Methods PDs performed for AC between 2010 and 2018 were retrospectively evaluated....

BACKGROUND The role of minimally invasive distal pancreatectomy is still unclear, and whether robotic distal pancreatectomy (RDP) offers benefits over laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy (LDP) is unknown because large multicentre studies are lacking. This study compared perioperative outcomes between RDP and LDP. METHODS A multicentre international propensity score-matched study included patients who underwent RDP or LDP for any indication in 21 European centres from six countries that performed ...

Serous cysto-adenoma (SCA) is a rare benign neoplasm of the pancreas. SCA can mimic other pancreatic lesions, such as neuroendocrine tumours. 68Gallium-DOTA-peptide Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is able to image in vivo the over-expression of the somatostatin receptors, playing an important role for the identification of neuroendocrine neoplasms. We reported a case of 63-year-old man, with a solid lesion of 7 cm of diameter of the body–tail of the pancreas. Two fine-needle-aspirations (FNA)...

OBJECTIVE To assess outcomes among patients undergoing total pancreatectomy (TP) including predictors for complications and in-hospital mortality. BACKGROUND Current studies on TP mostly originate from high-volume centers and span long time periods and therefore may not reflect daily practice. METHODS This prospective pan-European snapshot study included patients who underwent elective (primary or completion) TP in 43 centers in 16 European countries (June 2018-June 2019). Subgroup analysis incl...

Pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is the fourth leading cause of cancer-related death, and soon to become the second. There is an urgent need of variables associated to specific pancreatic pathologies to help preoperative differential diagnosis and patient profiling. Pancreatic juice is a relatively unexplored body fluid, which, due to its close proximity to the tumor site, reflects changes in the surrounding tissue. Here we describe in detail the intraoperative collection procedure. Unfortunatel...
