PURPOSE: Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is a promising treatment modality for locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC). We evaluated the clinical outcomes of SBRT in patients with LAPC. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the medical records of patients with LAPC who underwent SBRT at our institution between April 2011 and July 2016. Fiducial markers were implanted using endoscopic ultrasound guidance one week prior to 4-dimensional computed tomography (CT) simulation ...

BACKGROUND: Determining the growth rate of pancreatic cystic lesions on follow-up imaging is important in managing patients with these lesions. However, the growth rates of serous pancreatic neoplasms (SPNs) have been reported to vary among studies. PURPOSE: To determine the in vivo growth rate of SPNs. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This retrospective, single-institutional study included patients diagnosed with SPNs during 2006-2015. The diagnosis of SPNs was based on the results of surgery, endoscopic ...

: Type 1 autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP1) is an IgG4-related systemic disease that mimics tumors. We report a rare case of AIP1 accompanied by mucinous cystic neoplasm (MCN). A pancreatic lesion was incidentally detected in a woman in her 60s. After 6 years of follow-up, the lesion abruptly increased in size. Computed tomography showed a 3.5 cm unilocular cyst in the tail of the pancreas and distal pancreatectomy was performed. On microscopic examination, the cyst was lined by mucinous and non-muc...

The clinical benefit and potential risks of conversion surgery after neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) have not been fully investigated in patients with borderline resectable pancreatic cancer (BRPC) and locally advanced unresectable pancreatic cancer (LAPC). Therefore, this has been evaluated in a retrospective, prospective cohort-based analysis. Between October 2005 and April 2017, 135 patients (65 with BRPC and 70 with LAPC) received conversion surgery after NACT. Exploratory analysis to assess...

Background and Aims Endoscopic gallbladder drainage (GBD) has been performed as an alternative to percutaneous drainage for acute cholecystitis. To date, there has been no comparative study between EUS-guided cholecystostomy (EUSC) and endoscopic transpapillary cholecystostomy (ETC). The aim of this study was to compare the outcomes of EUSC and ETC. Methods A retrospective review of an endoscopic GBD database prospectively collected at the Asan Medical Center (between July 2010 and December 2014...

312Background: Although neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) has been widely investigated, the magnitude of the clinical benefit and the potential risk of NACT followed by surgery compared with upfront surgery remains unclear for patients with locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC). Methods: This retrospective, prospective cohort-based analysis included 135 patients who underwent NACT followed by surgery and 359 patients who received upfront surgery for LAPC between October 2005 and April 2017. Di...

Backgrounds A two-stage procedure involving endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), followed by cholecystectomy, is one of the primary treatments of concomitant gallstones and choledocholithiasis. However, negative findings on ERCP and migrating gallstones after cholecystectomy are major concerns. This study aimed to identify the prevalence of unnecessary ERCP and to develop and validate a predictive nomogram using preoperative factors in patients who underwent a two-stage procedu...
