: MINI: The characteristics of cystic pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (cPanNENs) are largely unknown, and their clinical management remains unclear; specifically, an observational strategy for asymptomatic cPanNENs ≤2 cm has been proposed by recent guidelines, but evidence is scarce and limited to single institutional series. In this international cohort study of 263 resected cPanNENs from 16 institutions worldwide, a preoperative size >2 cm was independently associated with aggressive behav...

Abstract Background A fatty infiltration of the pancreas has been traditionally regarded as the main histological risk factor for postoperative pancreatic fistula, whereas the role of the secreting acinar compartment has been poorly investigated. The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of acinar content at pancreatic resection margin in the development of clinically relevant postoperative pancreatic fistula and clinically relevant postoperative acute pancreatitis after pancreaticoduodenec...

Abstract Background The association between intraoperative estimated blood loss and outcomes after pancreatoduodenectomy has, thus far, been rarely explored. Methods In total, 7,706 pancreatoduodenectomies performed at 18 international institutions composing the Pancreas Fistula Study Group were examined (2003–2020). High estimated blood loss (>700 mL) was defined as twice the median. Propensity score matching (1:1 exact-match) was employed to adjust for variables associated with high estimated ...

Abstract Background In bowel surgery, adherence to enhanced recovery program (ERP) has been associated with improved recovery. The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of adherence to ERP elements on outcomes, and identify factors associated with successful recovery following distal pancreatectomy (DP). Methods Data for 376 patients who underwent DP managed within an ERP including 16 perioperative elements were reviewed. Primary endpoint was successful recovery, a composite outcome...

Abstract Background Current treatment of potentially resectable pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) includes pancreatic resection followed by adjuvant therapy. Aim of this study is to identify factors that are related with overall and early recurrence after pancreatectomy for PDAC. Methods Retrospective analysis of patients with histologically confirmed PDAC who underwent pancreatectomy between September 2009 and December 2014. Early relapse was defined as recurrence within 12 months after s...

Abstract Background 2017 International and 2018 European guidelines are the most recent guidelines for intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms management. Aim to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of these guidelines in identifying malignant IPMN. Methods data from resected patients with IPMN were collected in two referral centers. Features of risk associated to cancerous degeneration described in International and European guidelines were retrospectively applied. Sensitivity, specificity, positi...

PURPOSE To present the state-of-art of radiomics in the context of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PanNETs), with a focus on the methodological and technical approaches used, to support the search of guidelines for optimal applications. Furthermore, an up-to-date overview of the current clinical applications of radiomics in the field of PanNETs is provided. METHODS Original articles were searched on PubMed and Science Direct with specific keywords. Evaluations of the selected studies have been...

Abstract Background The cost-effectiveness of minimally invasive distal pancreatectomy (MIDP) is still a matter of debate. This study compares the cost-effectiveness of open (ODP), laparoscopic (LDP) and robotic distal pancreatectomy (RDP). Methods Pubmed, Web of Science and Cochrane Library databases were searched. Studies comparing cost-effectiveness of ODP and MIDP were included. Results A total of 1052 titles were screened and 16 articles were included in the study, 2431 patients in total. L...

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is currently the fourth leading cause of cancer-related death in the USA. A wealth of evidence has demonstrated the chemopreventive activity of aspirin, statins, and metformin against PDAC. The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of aspirin, statins, and metformin on disease-free survival (DFS) and disease-specific survival (DSS) in a large population of PDAC patients undergoing pancreatic resection. All patients who underwent pancreatic resecti...
