Transcriptome analyses allow the distinguishing of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) subtypes, exhibiting different prognoses and chemotherapy responses. However, RNA extraction from pancreatic tissue is cumbersome and has been performed mainly from surgical samples, which are representative of < 20% of cases. The majority of PDAC patients undergo endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided tissue acquisition (EUS-TA), but RNA has been rarely extracted from EUS-TA with scanty results. Herein, we ai...

Abstract Background Adequate criteria for pancreatic surgery centralization are debated. This retrospective study aimed to define a reproducible method for complex care centralization, accounting for hospital performance and access to care. Methods The method consisted in: 1. Analysis of overall outcome and mortality-related factors. 2. Assessment of volume and adjusted mortality of each hospital. 3. Definition of different centralization models. 4. Final adjustments to guarantee access to care,...

Importance Branch-duct intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (BD-IPMNs) are common pancreatic preneoplastic lesions, but their surveillance is not personalized. Objective To investigate patient- and cyst-related factors associated with progression into worrisome features (WFs) or high-risk stigmata (HRS) categories of BD-IPMNs. Design, setting, and participants Cyst- and patient-related factors of consecutive BD-IPMNs without WFs or HRS in 540 patients diagnosed from 2009 to 2018 with at leas...

Importance The benefit of adjuvant chemotherapy after resection of pancreatic cancer following neoadjuvant combination treatment with folinic acid, fluorouracil, irinotecan, and oxaliplatin (FOLFIRINOX) is unclear. Objective To assess the association of adjuvant chemotherapy with overall survival (OS) in patients after pancreatic cancer resection and neoadjuvant FOLFIRINOX treatment. Design, Setting, and Participants This international, multicenter, retrospective cohort study was conducted from ...

Abstract Background Postoperative acute pancreatitis (POAP) can be a possible cause of postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF). The present study aimed to evaluate the role of clinically-relevant POAP (CR-POAP), defined according to different cut-offs of postoperative amylase (AMS) values and C-reactive protein (CRP), in the development of clinically relevant POPF (CR-POPF) after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). Methods Data from 610 patients who underwent PD (2015–2018) were analyzed. Patients wer...
