Abstract Background Carbohydrate antigen 19–9 (CA19-9) has been reported as the most significant survival predictor of patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). However, the elevation of CA19-9 could interfere with obstructive jaundice and the predictive value of CA19-9 in PDAC patients with jaundice remains to be analyzed and elucidated to find possible adjustments. Objective To evaluate the predictability of preoperative CA19-9 and its adjustments for the overall survival (OS) of ...

Abstract Objective UK national guidelines recommend pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy (PERT) in pancreatic cancer. Over 80% of pancreatic cancers are unresectable and managed in non-surgical units. The aim was to assess variation in PERT prescribing, determine factors associated with its use and identify potential actions to improve prescription rates. Design RICOCHET was a national prospective audit of malignant pancreatic, peri-ampullary lesions or malignant biliary obstruction between Apr...

INTRODUCTION Earlier national surveys on the management of acute pancreatitis (AP) had reported non-compliance to practice guidelines. In the past decade, several guidelines were revised based on new evidence. In this multicenter international survey, we aimed to evaluate the practice patterns of early management of AP and compliance to the revised treatment guidelines across different disciplines and practice environments. METHODS A structured questionnaire was sent via email to a target popula...

Abstract Objective Macrophages are involved in obesity-associated inflammation and severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) development. However, the role of adipose tissue macrophages (ATMs) in obesity-related SAP has not been fully elucidated. We investigated the relationship between ATMs and inflammatory responses in SAP model mice fed a high-fat diet (HFD). Methods SAP was induced in animal models via intraperitoneal injections of caerulein and lipopolysaccharide (LPS). SAP severity was evaluated, bo...

Abstract Background Pseudocysts being the most frequent local complications of acute pancreatitis (AP) have substantial effect on the disease course, hospitalization and quality of life of the patient. Our study aimed to understand the effects of pre-existing (OLD-P) and newly developed (NEW-P) pseudocysts on AP. Methods Data were extracted from the Acute Pancreatitis Registry organized by the Hungarian Pancreatic Study Group (HPSG). 2275 of 2461 patients had uploaded information concerning panc...

Abstract Background Postoperative acute pancreatitis (POAP) emerges as a distinct pancreas-specific complication increasing both the risk and the burden of POPF after pancreatoduodenectomy. Among various risk factors, pancreas stump (PS) hypoperfusion might play a role in POAP occurrence but has never been investigated. The current study aimed at evaluating the feasibility of intraoperative fluorescence angiography (IOFA) of the PS using ICG and its association with POAP. Methods Consecutive pat...

Abstract Objective To determine the risk association between fasting glucose levels and pancreatic cancer using systematically collected prediagnostic blood glucose samples. Methods Prospective nested case-control study of participants from the Northern Sweden Health and Disease Study, including 182 cases that developed pancreatic cancer and four matched controls per case. Blood glucose levels collected up to 24 years before pancreatic cancer diagnosis were analyzed. The association between fast...

Abstract Background Acinar cell carcinoma (ACC) is a very rare tumor of the exocrine pancreas, representing less than 1% of all pancreatic malignancies. The majority of data regarding ACC are limited to small case series. Methods This is a retrospective study conducted at a large healthcare system from 1996 to 2019. Patients with pathologically confirmed ACC were included, and demographic data, tumor characteristics, and treatment outcomes were abstracted by chart review. Survival curves were ob...

Abstract Introduction Normal pancreatic thickness values on ultrasound (US) have been defined in literature. However, there is insufficient information about normal pancreatic measurements acquired from computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). To define normal pancreatic thickness measurements acquired from different localizations in order to provide reference values for more objectively identified parenchymal thickness changes. Materials and methods A retrospective evaluati...

Abstract Background and aims Necrotizing pancreatitis has a variable clinical course and it is essential to identify determinants associated with high risk of mortality and poor clinical outcomes. The aim of this study is to evaluate the association between CT-assessed body composition parameters such as visceral fat area (VFA), skeletal muscle index (SMI) and skeletal muscle density (SMD) and inpatient mortality in NP patients. Secondary outcomes include organ failure on admission, persistent o...
