Introduction: The following is a summary of the official guidelines of the Italian Association for the Study of the Pan- creas regarding the medical, endoscopic and surgical man- agement of acute pancreatitis. Statements: Clinical features together with elevation of the plasma concentrations of pan- creatic enzymes are the cornerstones of diagnosis (recom- mendation A). Contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) provides good evidence for the presence of pancreatitis (recommendation C) and it sh...

Background: The main aim of this study was to compare short-term results and long-term outcomes of patients undergoing laparoscopic versus open left colonic resection. Methods: Between February 2000 and December 2004, all adult patients undergoing elective left colonic resection were assessed for eligibility to the study. The protocol for postoperative care was the same in both groups. Cost–benefit analysis was based on hospital costs. Quality of life, long-term morbidity and 5-year survival wer...

Context. The use of pediatric donors can increase the number of donors available for pancreas transplantation. Aim. The aim of this study was to verify if pancreas transplantation from pediatric donors is as effective as transplantation from adult donors to restore metabolic control in type 1 diabetic patients. Materials and Methods. From 2000 to April 2009 we performed 17 pancreas transplantations from pediatric donors: 9 simultaneous kidney-pancreas (SPK), 6 pancreas transplantation alone (PTA...

4608 Background: The PEFG regimen yielded a statistically relevant outcome advantage as compared with gemcitabine (G) in patients with advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PA). The current trial assessed the impact upon disease control of PEFG regimen and single agent G after curative resection for PA. At time of trial design, both arms were experimental since the role of adjuvant therapy in PA was debated. Methods: After R0 or R1 resection for PA, patients with stage IB-III disease, aged 18–70 y...

Background: Data on enhanced recovery programmes after pancreatic surgery are sparse. This retrospective cohort study, using historical controls, aimed to evaluate the impact of a fast-track programme after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). Methods: Between 2004 and 2007, 252 patients undergoing PD were treated by a fast-track programme that included earlier postoperative feeding and mobilization. The patients were compared with an equally sized control group that received a traditional programme fr...
