Background/Aims: Presence of enhanced mural nodules, which can be visualized using computed tomography (CT), is one of high-risk stigmata in branch-duct intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (BD-IPMNs). Conversely, the absence of enhanced mural nodules on preoperative imaging does not exclude malignant risk. The present study aimed to investigate other morphological features as predictors of malignancy in "pure" BD-IPMNs without enhanced mural nodules on CT. Methods: This retrospective study ...

Background and Aims Small hepatic masses often do not have distinct margins on B-mode EUS images. Contrast-enhanced harmonic EUS (CEH-EUS) is widely used for evaluating ambiguous pancreatic lesions. However, its role in detecting hepatic lesions and the use of EUS-guided FNA are not well evaluated. We investigated the usefulness of CEH-EUS–guided FNA for evaluating hepatic lesions. Methods Thirty consecutive patients with hepatic masses underwent CEH-EUS and CEH-EUS–guided FNA between September ...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Little is known about the standard care of small (<2 cm in diameter) pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNET). The aim of the present study was to determine the clinical outcomes of small PNET after endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided ethanol-lipiodol ablation (EUS-ELA). METHODS: In this prospective cohort study, consecutive patients who underwent EUS-ELA for PNET were enrolled and were followed for ≥3 years. Treatment efficacy was the primary outcome measure. RESULTS: In total...

There was an error made in the first paragraph of the Results section, under the subheading ‘Study Population’. The original sentence said: A total of 64 patients underwent ERCP, and 61 patients underwent EUS-BD. The correct sentence is as follows: A total of 61 patients underwent ERCP, and 64 patients underwent EUS-BD. The authors would like to apologize for the error.

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Endoscopic snare papillectomy (ESP) is an effective treatment for ampullary adenoma. Argon plasma coagulation (APC) is widely used as an additional method to control bleeding or ablate the residual tumor. However, the efficacy of this procedure has not yet been fully evaluated. This study aimed to evaluate the usefulness of APC as an additional method to ESP. METHODS: Patients who underwent ESP for ampullary adenoma between September 2005 and September 2015 were retrospective...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Fully covered self-expandable metal stent (FCSEMS) placement has been tried for pancreatic ductal strictures in chronic pancreatitis. However, the long-term outcome of this procedure remains unknown. The present study aimed to investigate the procedural and long-term outcomes of FCSEMS placement in patients with benign refractory pancreatic ductal strictures. METHODS: Between August 2011 and September 2015, 18 patients underwent endoscopic treatment with FCSEMS for benign ref...

Background We aimed to comprehensively evaluate the prognostic value of inflammation-based prognostic scores, including the modified Glasgow Prognostic Score (mGPS), neutrophil–lymphocyte ratio (NLR), and platelet–lymphocyte ratio (PLR), exclusively in patients with advanced intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (iCCA). Methods Between May 2010 and April 2015, 305 patients with histologically documented unresectable or metastatic iCCA were treated with first-line gemcitabine plus cisplatin (GemCis). A...
