: Over the last few years, remarkable progress has been made in diagnosis, severity assessment and treatment as well as in our understanding of the pathophysiology of acute pancreatitis. New treatment modalities and new specific drugs have been introduced and this has led to practical changes in the daily bedside management of patients with acute pancreatitis. Treatment is essentially medical, both for mild and severe disease, and is aimed at reducing abdominal pain, restoring electrolyte and fl...

The aim of this study was to compare alcohol andsmoking as risk factors in the development of chronicpancreatitis and pancreatic cancer. We considered onlymale subjects: (1) 630 patients with chronic pancreatitis who developed 12 pancreatic and 47extrapancreatic cancers; (2) 69 patients withhistologically well documented pancreatic cancer and noclinical history of chronic pancreatitis; and (3) 700 random controls taken from the Verona pollinglist and submitted to a complete medical check-up.Chro...

The salivary glands are structurally similar to the exocrine pancreas and may be involved in the course of diseases of autoimmune origin (sclerosing cholangitis, ulcerative rectocolitis, primary biliary cirrhosis). For a not-yet-quantified proportion of chronic pancreatitis (CP) cases, a possible autoimmune pathogenesis has been postulated. The aim of the study was to assess the frequency of salivary ductal system abnormalities in patients with CP. Fifty-one patients with CP consecutively admitt...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: Chronic pancreatitis patients appear to present an increased incidence of pancreatic cancer. The aim of the study was to compare the incidence of cancer, whether pancreatic or extrapancreatic, in our chronic pancreatitis cases with that in the population of our region. METHODS: We analyzed 715 cases of chronic pancreatitis with a median follow-up of 10 yr (7287 person-years); during this observation period they developed 61 neoplasms, 14 of which were pancreatic cancers. The ...
