BACKGROUND Mucinous pancreatic cysts are well reported to transform into pancreatic adenocarcinoma, whereas nonmucinous cysts are mostly benign with low risk for malignant transformation. Nonsurgical methods of differentiating mucinous and nonmucinous pancreatic cysts are challenging and entail a multi investigational approach. Low intracystic glucose levels have been evaluated in multiple studies for its accuracy in differentiating mucinous from nonmucinous cysts of the pancreas. METHODS Multip...

There is limited evidence on the role of chronic statin therapy in the prevention of acute pancreatitis after ERCP. The aim of this meta-analysis was to evaluate the efficacy of statins in the prop...

Background and study aims The therapeutic role of endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) evolved in recent decade,s opening a new chapter in the field of endoscopic biliary drainage (BD). EUS-BD has emerged as a new mini-invasive technique for neoplastic jaundice not amenable to endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). The primary study aims were to assess the clinical efficacy of EUS-BD using an electrocautery-enhanced lumen apposing metal stent (ECE-LAMS) in patients with malignant biliary ...

Background and study aims There is limited evidence on the diagnostic performance of endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided tissue acquisition in autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP). The aim of this meta-analysis was to provide a pooled estimate of the diagnostic performance of EUS-guided fine-needle aspiration (FNA) and fine-needle biopsy (FNB) in patients with AIP. Patients and methods Computerized bibliographic search was performed through January 2020. Pooled effects were calculated using a random-eff...

Pancreatic cystic lesions are increasingly found due to the extended use of radiographic imaging techniques. These lesions have a highly variable biological behavior, ranging from completely benign and non-evolutionary to invasive with metastatic potential. There is currently no single examination allowing to obtain a precise diagnosis in all cases. Instead, all available data is considered, piecing together a puzzle and coming as close as possible to the correct final diagnosis. Cystic fluid an...
