Objective Recently, tumours with microsatellite instability (MSI)/defective DNA mismatch repair (dMMR) have gained considerable interest due to the success of immunotherapy in this molecular setting. Here, we aim to clarify clinical-pathological and/or molecular features of this tumour subgroup through a systematic review coupled with a comparative analysis with existing databases, also providing indications for a correct approach to the clinical identification of MSI/dMMR pancreatic ductal aden...

BACKGROUND: The authors hypothesized that in resected pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PDAC), pathologic characteristics, oncologic outcomes, prognostic factors, and the accuracy of the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) staging system might differ based on tumor location. METHODS: Patients undergoing pancreatectomy for PDAC at two academic institutions from 2000 to 2015 were retrieved. A comparative analysis between head (H-PDAC) and body-tail (BT-PDAC) tumors was performed using uni- and mult...

Importance The operative scenarios with the highest postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) risk represent situations in which fistula prevention and mitigation strategies have the strongest potential to affect surgical outcomes after pancreaticoduodenectomy. Evidence from studies providing risk stratification is lacking. Objective To investigate whether pancreaticojejunostomy (PJ) or pancreaticogastrostomy (PG), both with externalized transanastomotic stent, is the best reconstruction method fo...

Importance Ampullary adenocarcinoma is a rare malignant neoplasm that arises within the duodenal ampullary complex. The role of adjuvant therapy (AT) in the treatment of ampullary adenocarcinoma has not been clearly defined. Objective To determine if long-term survival after curative-intent resection of ampullary adenocarcinoma may be improved by selection of patients for AT directed by histologic subtype. Design, Setting, and Participants This multinational, retrospective cohort study was condu...

Abstract Background Very little is known about adjuvant chemotherapy for invasive Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasms (IPMNs) of the pancreas. The aim was to assess whether adjuvant chemotherapy affects survival. Methods Retrospective evaluation of invasive IPMNs. Patients treated with surgery alone or followed by adjuvant chemotherapy were compared in terms of survival. Results A total of 102 invasive IPMNs were analyzed. Median follow-up was 72 (5–318) months and 18.6% received adjuvant c...

The value of minimally invasive pancreatic surgery (MIPS) is still debated. To assess the diffusion of MIPS in Italy and identify the barriers preventing wider implementation, a questionnaire was developed under the auspices of three Scientific Societies (AISP, It-IHPBA, SICE) and was sent to the largest possible number of Italian surgeons also using the mailing list of the two main Italian Surgical Societies (SIC and ACOI). The questionnaire consisted of 25 questions assessing: centre character...

Purpose The use of intra-abdominal drains after major surgical procedures represents a well-established but controversial practice. No data are available regarding both the occurrence and the potential impact of their postoperative accidental dislocation. The aim of this study is to assess the actual rate of dislocation of intra-abdominal drains postoperatively and to evaluate its clinical impact.

This study aims at clarifying the prognostic role of high-grade tumor budding (TB) in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) with the first systematic review and meta-analysis on this topic. Furthermore, we analyzed with a systematic review the relationship between TB and a recently suggested TB-associated mechanism: the epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT). Analyzing a total of 613 patients, 251 of them (40.9%) with high grade-TB, we found an increased risk of all-cause mortality (RR, 1....
