Abstract Purpose Magnetic Resonance (MR) is recommended to diagnose Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasms (IPMN) and in the follow-up of borderline lesions. The purpose of this work is to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of dynamic Magnetic Resonance (MR) with Diffusion Weighted Imaging (DWI) in the identification of mural nodules of IPMN of pancreas by using pathological analysis as gold standard. Materials and methods Ninety-one preoperative MR with histopathological diagnosis of IPMN were ...

OBJECTIVE To reappraise the optimal number of examined lymph nodes (ELN) in pancreatoduodenectomy (PD) for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA The well-established threshold of 15 ELN in PD for PDAC is optimized for detecting one positive node (PLN) per the previous 7 edition of the AJCC staging manual. In the framework of the 8 edition, where at least four PLN are needed for an N2 diagnosis, this threshold may be inadequate for accurate staging. METHODS Patients who...

Background Up-front surgery followed by postoperative chemotherapy remains the standard paradigm for the treatment of patients with resectable pancreatic cancer. However, the risk for positive surgical margins, the poor recovery after surgery that often impairs postoperative treatment, and the common metastatic relapse limit the overall clinical outcomes achieved with this strategy. Polychemotherapeutic combinations are valid options for postoperative treatment in patients with good performance ...

Pancreatic malignant exocrine tumors represent the most important cause of cancer-related death for pancreatic neoplasms. The most common tumor type in this category is represented by pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC), an ill defined, stroma-rich, scirrhous neoplasm with glandular differentiation. Here we present the relevant characteristics of the most important PDAC variants, namely adenosquamous carcinoma, colloid carcinoma, undifferentiated carcinoma, undifferentiated carcinoma with os...

Inflammatory/tumor-like lesions of the pancreas represent a heterogeneous group of diseases that can variably involve the pancreatic gland determining different signs and symptoms. In the category of inflammatory/tumor-like lesions of the pancreas, the most important entities are represented by chronic pancreatitis, which includes alcoholic, obstructive and hereditary pancreatitis, paraduodenal (groove) pancreatitis, autoimmune pancreatitis, lymphoepithelial cyst, pancreatic hamartoma and intrap...

The intraductal oncocytic papillary neoplasm (IOPN) of the pancreas has been recognized by WHO classification as a unique intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) category. IOPN is composed of oxyphil cells, usually expressing MUC5AC, MUC6, and Hep Par-1, and harboring PRKACA/B fusion genes as their genetic hallmark. Although IOPNs are associated with an infiltrative adenocarcinoma in up to 30% of cases, the survival rate after surgical resection approaches 100%. This highlights the import...
