Abstract Background Painless chronic pancreatitis (CP) is a rare form of the disease. Aim To evaluate the prevalence and the characteristics of this overlooked form of pancreatitis. Methods Patients with a diagnosis of CP and absence of pain were selected, excluding patients suffering from autoimmune pancreatitis. Clinical data, imaging features, and exocrine and endocrine function were therefore analyzed. Results Among 781 patients observed between 2010 and 2016, 74 patients with painless CP (9...

Abstract Introduction A prospective survey to evaluate the diagnostic workup of cystic pancreatic neoplasms (CPNs) according to the Italian guidelines. Methods An online data sheet was built. Results Fifteen of the 1385 patients (1.1%) had non cystic neoplastic lesions. Forty percent (518/1295) had at least one 1st degree relative affected by a solid tumor of the digestive and extra-digestive organs. Symptoms/signs associated with the cystic lesion were present in 24.5% of the patients. The cyst...

Abstract Background Scores predicting postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) mainly use intraoperative predictors. The aim of this study is to investigate the role of pancreatic exocrine function expressed by fecal elastase (FE-1) as preoperative predictor of POPF. Methods Patients scheduled for PD at the Department of General and Pancreatic Surgery, University of Verona Hospital, from April 2017 to July 2018 were prospectively enrolled. FE-1 was measured in a...

OBJECTIVES: Chronic asymptomatic pancreatic hyperenzymemia (CAPH) was described as a benign disease. However, we already described clinically relevant findings requiring surgery or follow-up in half of the subjects. The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-term outcome of CAPH in terms of symptoms and evolution toward chronic pancreatitis. METHODS: Subjects previously enrolled in the first phase of the study (from 2005 to 2010) were reinvestigated from December 2013 to January 2017 with a ...

: Ablation treatments have been increasingly applied as an alternative treatment for unresectable locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC). The goal of LAPC therapy is surgical resection with negative margins (R0); however, that can be achieved only in a minority of patients and only following neoadjuvant treatment. Ablation might be useful for those patients with unresectable LAPC that do not progress towards metastatic stage and do not experience a true downstaging. Indeed, some LAPC that ten...

IgG4-related sclerosing cholangitis (IgG4-RC) is a clinical condition described in the last 10 years, according to the growing knowledge on IgG4-related diseases (IgG4-RD). In Europe, few studies have been published on IgG4-RC and the information available are mainly derived from patients suffering from autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP). The chapter report the knowledge about the disease in Europe, and diagnostic algorytm and therapy currently applied for this rare but challenging disease.

Purpose of review Clinical management of autoimmune pancreatitis changed over the last years. The lack of high-quality studies, probably due to the relative rarity of the disease, has not fully clarified many diagnostic and therapeutic aspects. Aim of this review is to overview the literature from a clinical point of view, focusing on diagnostic and therapeutic approach to this complicated disease. Recent findings They have been focused mainly on the risk of misdiagnosing a cancer. Many signific...

Autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) is a rare disorder whose association with coeliac disease (CD) has never been investigated, although CD patients display a high prevalence of both endocrine and exocrine pancreatic affections. Therefore, we sought to evaluate the frequency of CD in patients with AIP and in further medical pancreatic disorders. The screening for CD was carried out through the detection of tissue transglutaminase (tTG) autoantibodies in sera of patients retrospectively enrolled and di...

Abstract Background/Objectives Screening/surveillance programs for pancreatic cancer (PC) in familial high-risk individuals (FPC-HRI) have been widely reported, but their merits remain unclear. The data reported so far are heterogeneous—especially in terms of screening yield. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of currently available data coming from screening/surveillance programs to evaluate the proportion of screening goal achievement (SGA), overall surgery and unnecessary surg...
