  • [Title] KL-6 mucin expression in carcinoma of the ampulla of Vater: association with cancer progression.
  • AIM: To assess histochemical expression of KL-6 and its clinicopathological significance in carcinoma of the ampulla of Vater.
  • METHODS: Ampullary carcinoma tissues were collected from 38 patients who underwent pancreatoduodenectomy or local resection.
  • RESULTS: Positive staining of ampullary carcinoma cells was observed in 26 (68.4%) cases.
  • Staining was not found in the surrounding non-cancer regions of the ampullary tissues.
  • Remarkable KL-6 expression was observed in invasive carcinoma cells in pancreatic and duodenal tissues and in metastatic carcinoma cells in lymph nodes.
  • Positive KL-6 expression was related to lymph node metastasis (P = 0.020), pancreatic invasion (P = 0.016), duodenal invasion (P = 0.034), and advanced stage of TNM clinical classification (P = 0.010).
  • CONCLUSION: The aberrant expression of KL-6 mucin is significantly related to unfavorable behaviors of carcinoma of the ampulla of Vater.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Adjuvant chemoradiation versus surgery alone for adenocarcinoma of the ampulla of Vater.
  • BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: To examine the role of adjuvant chemoradiation (CRT) in patients with resected ampullary adenocarcinoma.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: The records of patients who underwent curative surgery for ampullary adenocarcinoma at a single institution between 1992 and 2007 were reviewed.
  • Adverse prognostic factors for OS included T stage (T3/4 vs. T1/T2, p=0.046), node status (positive vs. negative, p<0.001), and histological grade (grade 3 vs. 1/2, p=0.09).
  • Patients receiving CRT were more likely to have advanced T-stage (p=0.001), node positivity (p<0.001), and poor histologic grade (p=0.015).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Adjuvant chemoradiation following curative resection for ampullary adenocarcinoma did not lead to a statistically significant benefit in overall survival.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Carcinoma of the papilla of Vater following treatment of pancreaticobiliary maljunction.
  • Pancreaticobiliary maljunction (PBM) is frequently associated with biliary cancer due to reflux of pancreatic enzymes into the choledochus, and even after surgery to correct the PBM such patients still have a risk of residual bile duct cancer.
  • Here, we report the case of a 59-year-old female with carcinoma of the papilla of Vater which developed 2.5 years after choledochoduodenostomy for PBM.
  • As a result, carcinoma of the papilla of Vater was diagnosed at an early stage, followed by surgical cure.
  • For early detection of periampullary cancer in patients undergoing surgery for PBM, careful long-term follow-up is needed.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Role of adjuvant chemoradiotherapy for ampulla of Vater cancer.
  • PURPOSE: To evaluate the role of adjuvant chemoradiotherapy for ampulla of Vater cancer.
  • METHODS AND MATERIALS: Between January 1991 and December 2002, 118 patients with ampulla of Vater cancer underwent en bloc resection.
  • When age, type of operation, T stage, N stage, histologic differentiation, and the use of adjuvant chemoradiotherapy were incorporated into the Cox proportional hazard model, there was an improvement in the locoregional relapse-free survival rate (p = 0.0050) and a trend toward a longer overall survival (p = 0.0762) associated with the use of adjuvant chemoradiotherapy.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Adjuvant chemoradiotherapy may enhance locoregional control and overall survival in patients with ampulla of Vater cancer after curative resection, especially in those with nodal involvement.

6. Lee SY, Jang KT, Lee KT, Lee JK, Choi SH, Heo JS, Paik SW, Rhee JC: Can endoscopic resection be applied for early stage ampulla of Vater cancer? Gastrointest Endosc; 2006 May;63(6):783-8

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Can endoscopic resection be applied for early stage ampulla of Vater cancer?
  • BACKGROUND: Although endoscopic resection can provide a wide tumor resection with a negative resection margin, it is not yet recommended as a curative therapy for ampulla of Vater cancer.
  • METHODS: To investigate the microinvasion rate and the diagnostic accuracy of endoscopic biopsy to properly judge the safety of endoscopic resection for ampulla of Vater cancer.
  • PATIENTS: One hundred fifty-nine patients who were finally diagnosed with ampulla of Vater cancer after curative surgical resection.
  • For the 36 early stage (Tis or T1) cancers, we surveyed the presence of microlymphovascular invasion, gross appearance (intra-ampullary type, periampullary type, or mixed type), and pathologic subtype (intestinal type or pancreaticobiliary type).
  • MAIN OUTCOME MEASUREMENTS: Presence of microinvasion in early staged ampulla of Vater cancer.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although endoscopic resection improves the low predictability of endoscopic biopsy, surgical resection should be performed for the T1 stage ampulla of Vater cancer because of the high lymphovascular invasion rate.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Adenocarcinoma of the ampulla of Vater: T-stage, chromosome 17p allelic loss, and extended pancreaticoduodenectomy are relevant prognostic factors.
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the prognostic significance of different clinico-pathological and molecular factors, and to compare survival after standard and extended pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) in ampulla of Vater adenocarcinoma (AVAC).
  • Sixteen patients had T-stages 1-2, 14 T-stage 3, and 29 T-stage 4 cancers.
  • At univariate analysis, poor survival was associated with cancer ulceration (P = 0.051), poor differentiation (P = 0.008), T-stage 4 (P < 0.001), nodal metastases (P = 0.004), chromosome 17p (P < 0.001) and 18q LOH (P = 0.002), and absence of MSI (P = 0.009).
  • At multivariate analysis, only T-stage (P = 0.002) and 17p LOH (P = 0.001) were independent predictors of survival.
  • All patients with MSI-positive cancers were long-survivors (>12 yrs), whereas only 30% of MSI-negative cancer patients survived at 5 years.
  • CONCLUSION: MSI and chromosome 17p status allow to better define prognosis within ampullary cancers at the same stage.
  • Surgery alone resulted curative in MSI-positive cancer patients, whereas it was inadequate in patients showing allelic losses, who might benefit from adjuvant therapy.

  • [Title] Differential c-erbB-1 and c-erbB-2 mRNA expression in cancer of the pancreas compared with cancer of the papilla of Vater.
  • AIM: We examined quantitative mRNA expression of growth factor receptors (c-erbB-1, c-erbB-2) and the anti-apoptosis gene survivin known to be regulated in pancreatic adenocarcinomas and compared the expression pattern with that in carcinomas of the papilla of Vater.
  • METHODS: Quantitative real-time reverse transcriptase-PCR (QRT-PCR, Taqman) was performed to analyze mRNA expression levels of c-erbB-1, c-erbB-2 and survivin in normal and corresponding tumor samples of 31 pancreatic adenocarcinomas and 8 cancers of the papilla of Vater.
  • RESULTS: The overall median mRNA expression of survivin was significantly increased in both adenocarcinoma of the pancreas (P<0.01) and papilla of Vater (P<0.008) compared with uninvolved normal control tissue.
  • In pancreatic cancer, expression of c-erbB-1 was significantly decreased compared with the normal pancreatic tissue (P<0.03), whereas in the cancer of the papilla of Vater expression of c-erbB-2 was significantly downregulated (P<0.05) compared with the paired normal samples.
  • Gene expression was not associated with tumor stage, differentiation or prognosis.
  • CONCLUSION: The common anti-apoptosis gene survivin is overexpressed both in the cancer of the papilla of Vater and pancreas.
  • In contrast, the growth factor receptor genes c-erbB-1 and c-erbB-2 are differentially regulated in both tumor entities adding further evidence that pancreatic cancer is biologically different from the cancer of papilla of Vater.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Carcinoma of the ampulla of Vater: factors influencing long-term survival of 127 patients with resection.
  • INTRODUCTION: The prognosis for patients with carcinoma of the ampulla of Vater is improved relative to other periampullary neoplasms.
  • Identification of independent prognostic factors in ampullary carcinomas has been limited by the small number of tumors resected.
  • The aim of the present study was to determine the clinicopathologic factors that influence long-term survival in patients with resected ampullary carcinoma.
  • METHODS: Clinicopathologic data were retrospectively reviewed for patients with ampullary carcinomas radically resected between March 1987 and September 2002.
  • Ampullary carcinomas were radically resected in 127 patients either by pancreaticoduodenectomy (n = 124) or local resection (n = 3).
  • Factors that significantly influenced survival were lymph node status (P < 0.001), depth of tumor infiltration (P = 0.029), and TNM stage (P < 0.001) on univariate analysis.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Carcinoma of the ampulla of Vater has a higher resectability rate and a much better survival rate than pancreatic cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Feasibility of endoscopic papillectomy in early stage ampulla of Vater cancer.
  • BACKGROUND AND AIM: Although endoscopic papillectomy has been attempted in early stage ampullary cancer (pTis, T1), its curative role and indications remain uncertain.
  • METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of clinical and histopathological data of 216 patients with ampullary cancer between 1991 and 2006.
  • RESULTS: No tumor in pTis stage had metastasized to lymph nodes and only 9% of tumors in pT1 had metastasized.
  • Cases with early stage ampullary cancer of less than 2 cm with a well-differentiated histology and no angiolymphatic invasion (n = 13) showed no lymph node metastasis and no recurrence during a median follow up of 35.9 months.
  • CONCLUSION: Endoscopic papillectomy can be adopted as a viable alternative to surgery in patients with early stage ampullary cancer of less than 2 cm in size and with a well-differentiated histology.

  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the prognostic implication of common bile duct infiltration in the adenocarcinoma of the ampulla of Vater after panreaticoduodenectomy.
  • METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted on clinical manifestation, pathological behavior and survival data in 102 patients with Vater's ampulla adenocarcinoma, who underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy from Jan 1980 to Dec 2003.
  • RESULTS: There were 42 cases in stage I (41.2%), 32 in stage II (31.3%), 27 in stage III (26.5%), and 1 in stage IV (1.0%).
  • As for T stage: 9 cases in stage T1 (8.8%), 40 in T2 (39.2%), 25 in T3 (24.5%), and 28 in T4 (27.5%).
  • As regarding to N stage: 76 cases in stage N0 (74.5%) and 26 in N1 (25.5%).
  • CONCLUSION: If the adenocarcinoma of the Vater's ampulla infiltrated the common bile duct, the invasion to the pancreatic medulla is likely developed, and usually with a poor non-recurrence and overall survival.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Signet-ring cell carcinoma of the ampulla of Vater: report of a case.
  • Signet-ring cell carcinoma (SRCC) of the ampulla of Vater is uncommon, and only 13 cases have been previously described.
  • We herein report a rare case of a 43-year-old woman with SRCC in the ampulla of Vater.
  • Although this histologic type of cancer generally predicts a poor prognosis elsewhere in the gastrointestinal tract, the present patient has survived with no evidence of recurrence for 7.5 years.
  • She underwent a pancreaticoduodenectomy with an extended lymphadenectomy for ampullary carcinoma.
  • This neoplasm was classified as AcdbBi, 2.0 x 1.8 cm, ulcerative type, Panc(0), Du(2), T(2)N(0)M(-), Stage II according to the Japanese Classification on Cancer of the Biliary Tract.
  • Unfortunately, previous reports of ampullary SRCC have been limited to short-term follow-ups with a median period of only 12 months (range, 6-134 months), and long-term survival (more than 5 years) was only documented in two cases without lymph node metastasis (including the present case).
  • In conclusion, the experience gained in the present and previous cases suggests that long-term survival is possible following a curative resection in selected patients with ampullary SRCC without nodal involvement.
  • Due to the lack of sufficient evidence, additional reports are warranted to determine whether SRCC also portends a poor prognosis in patients with ampullary cancer.

  • BACKGROUND: Cancers of the ampulla are unusual and morphologically heterogeneous.
  • Based on pathologic and epidemiologic characteristics of cancer of the ampulla available in SEER, important clinicopathological correlations can be made.
  • METHODS: All patients with cancer of the ampulla were identified between 1973 and 2005.
  • Demographic features, distribution of histological types, age-specific incidence rates, and 5-year survival rates according to stage and histologic type were compared.
  • RESULTS: There were 5,625 cases of ampullary cancer.
  • Ampullary cancer has been increasing since 1973.
  • Survival depends on stage, grade, and histologic type.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Prognostic factors include histologic type, grade, stage, and coexisting adenomas.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Histochemical expression of sialoglycoconjugates in carcinoma of the papilla of Vater.
  • To investigate the role of sialylation in carcinoma of the papilla of Vater, histochemical analyses were performed using sialic acid-binding lectins, Maackia amurensis leukoagglutinin and Sambucus nigra agglutinin.
  • METHODOLOGY: Thirty-six papillary carcinoma tissues and 8 normal papillary tissues were subjected to lectin-histochemical staining.
  • Of 36 papillary carcinoma tissues, 20 showed Maackia amurensis leukoagglutinin-positive staining in cancer cells, whereas all 36 were Sambucus nigra agglutinin-positive in cancer cells.
  • Statistical analysis indicated that positive staining in cancer cells was frequent in cases of lymph node metastasis (p=0.001) and in cases classified > or = T2 by TNM classification (p=0.036).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Aberrant expression of sialoglycoconjugates recognized by Maackia amurensis leukoagglutinin might participate in lymph node metastasis and in an advanced stage of invasion in carcinoma of the papilla of Vater.

  • [Title] Role of adjuvant chemoradiation therapy in adenocarcinomas of the ampulla of vater.
  • PURPOSE: The role of adjuvant chemoradiation therapy (CRT) in the treatment of ampullary cancers remains undefined.
  • METHODS AND MATERIALS: Between May 1990 and January 2006, 54 of 96 patients with ampullary adenocarcinoma who underwent potentially curative pancreaticoduodenectomy also received adjuvant CRT.
  • However, on univariate analysis, T3/T4 tumor stage was prognostic for poorer LC and OS (p = 0.02 and p < 0.001, respectively); node-positive disease was prognostic for poorer LC (p = 0.03).
  • On multivariate analysis, T3/T4 tumor stage was independently prognostic for decreased OS (p = 0.002).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Ampullary cancers have a distinctly better treatment outcome than pancreatic adenocarcinomas.
  • Higher primary tumor stage (T3/T4), an independent adverse risk factor for poorer treatment outcomes, may warrant the addition of adjuvant CRT to pancreaticoduodenectomy.

  • [Title] Exceptional ultra-late recurrence of papilla Vater carcinoma after pancreaticoduodenectomy: two cases at 17 and 25 years.
  • Cancer of the papilla Vater can remain clinically quiescent for decades prior to regional or distant recurrence.
  • This protracted disease-free interval challenges the concept of a "cure" for cancer of the papilla Vater.
  • In the first case reported here, a 74-year-old female underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy in 1985 for cancer of the papilla Vater revealed histologically as a well-differentiated papillotubular adenocarcinoma, stage IA (UICC classification).
  • The second case is that of an 82-year-old female who underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy in 1974 for cancer of the papilla Vater, histologically a well-differentiated adenocarcinoma, stage IA.
  • In the 25.5 years after the operation, the cancer recurred at the choledochoduodenal anastomosis and involved the liver hilus.
  • The ultra-late recurrences (>15 years) in these cases are highly exceptional and, to our knowledge, this is the first report of such recurrences in cancer of the papilla Vater.
  • Because cancer of the papilla Vater can recur in many prognostically favorable cases after prolonged disease-free intervals, the possibility of delayed recurrence should not be ignored.

  • [Title] Histopathologic features and microsatellite instability of cancers of the papilla of vater and their precursor lesions.
  • The prevalence and development of microsatellite instability (MSI) and underlying mismatch repair (MMR) deficiency in the carcinogenesis of adenocarcinomas of the papilla of Vater and their precursor lesions are not well established.
  • We analyzed 120 ampullary adenomas (31 pure adenomas and 89 carcinoma-associated adenomas) and 170 pure adenocarcinomas for MSI, immunohistochemical expression of MMR proteins and specific histopathologic features.
  • Patients with MSI-H carcinoma had a significantly longer overall survival (P=0.0082) than those with MSI-L or MSS tumors.
  • Our findings indicate that the MSI-phenotype is an early event, which develops at the stage of adenoma and is reliably detectable in the precursor lesion.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Focal early stage cancer in ampullary adenoma: surgery or endoscopic papillectomy?
  • BACKGROUND: Recently, the evidence has been accumulating that endoscopic resection may be curative in treating ampullary adenoma that contains high-grade intraepithelial neoplasia/in situ tumor (HGIN/Tis).
  • However, there are only anecdotal reports of endoscopic management of "focal" T1 ampullary cancer (T1 cancer), and radical surgery is still considered the only accepted treatment modality.
  • OBJECTIVE: To assess the possibility of endoscopic papillectomy as an alternative to radical surgery for the treatment of ampullary adenoma with HGIN/Tis or focal T1 cancer.
  • PATIENTS: Twenty-three patients who had HGIN/Tis or focal T1 cancer in ampullary adenoma resected by endoscopic papillectomy and 60 patients who initially underwent radical surgery for HGIN/Tis or T1 cancer of the ampulla of Vater.
  • INTERVENTIONS: Review of medical records and analysis of surgically or endoscopically resected specimens of ampullary tumors.
  • RESULTS: Patients with HGIN/Tis of the ampulla of Vater had no lymphovascular invasion or lymph-node metastasis, and there were no occurrences of cancer or deaths during a mean (standard error [+/-SE]) 27.1 +/- 5.9 months after endoscopic papillectomy.
  • T1 cancer was shown to have lymphovascular invasion and/or lymph-node metastasis in 10.7% and duct mucosal involvement in another 17.9%.
  • Among them, patients with focal T1 cancer showed no lymphovascular invasion or lymph-node metastasis and no ductal involvement, and none of the patients who underwent endoscopic papillectomy alone had cancer recurrence or disease-related death for mean (+/-SE) 32.2 +/- 6.7 months.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Endoscopic papillectomy may be a curative treatment for ampullary adenoma with HGIN/Tis and should also be considered as an alternative to surgery in focal T1 cancer in ampullary adenoma.

  • [Title] [Comparison of endoscopic ultrasonography with computer-assisted tomography in the determination of preoperative stage and resectability of pancreatic and ampullary cancers].
  • OBJECTIVE: To study and compare the accuracy and sensitivity of endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) and CT scaning in determination of preoperative stage and vascular invasion by pancreatic and ampullary cancers.
  • METHODS: Fourty-two pancreatic cancer patients and 18 ampullary cancer patients were studied.
  • The structures of each part of pancreatic head and ampullary together with surrounding vessels were scanned.
  • 1996 to May 2004, a total of 42 pancreatic cancer patients and 18 ampullary cancer patients were examined by EUS.
  • The results of stage and vascular invasion determined by EUS in this series were as following; pancreatic cancer group (n = 42): accuracy in T2-4 stage was 100.0% (5/5), 75.0% (9/12) and 48.0% (12/25), respectively; ampullary cancer group (n = 18): T1-4 stage was 75.0% (3/4), 66.7% (2/3), 75.0% (6/8) and 33.3% (1/3), respectively; the accuracy in N stage: P-group: 80.0% in N1 (4/5), 90.0% in N0 (9/10); A-group: 50.0% in N1 (3/6), 91.0% in N0 (10/11).
  • CONCLUSION: Endoscopic ultrosonography being one of the best image examinations to determine the stage and vascular invasion for pancreatic and ampullary cancer paitients is able to detect small pancreatic or ampullary cancer less than 2.0 cm in diameter due to its high resolution; but can not detect the secondary multiple distal metastases such as spread into the liver, peritonium or hepatoduodenal ligament, etc. due to its ultrasound depth limitation.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Ampullary cancer and preoperative jaundice: possible indication of the minimal surgery.
  • BACKGROUND/AIMS: Obstructive jaundice is common symptom of carcinoma of the ampulla of Vater.
  • Preoperative jaundice, serum carbohydrate antigen 19-9 level, pancreatic invasion, lymphatic invasion, venous invasion, perineural invasion, duodenal invasion, margin status, lymph node metastasis, and T stage were shown to be significant prognostic factors.
  • In addition, 12 of the 14 patients without jaundice and lymphatic invasion were diagnosed as T1N0 (stage IA) disease, and all the tumors were papillary or well-differentiated adenocarcinoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Preoperative jaundice may reflect advanced-stage in case of ampullary cancer.

  • [Title] [Significance of occult lymphatic tumor spread in pancreatic cancer].
  • PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to determine the frequency and effect on prognosis of occult tumor cells in regional lymph nodes judged to be tumor-free in conventional histopathology of pancreatic cancer patients.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Among 115 patients who underwent pancreatic resection for pancreatic (n=84) or distal common bile duct malignancy (n=12) or carcinoma of the papilla (n=19), 48 (42%) were staged pN0.
  • The occurrence of occult tumor cells was not dependent on other clinicopathological factors such as pT stage, grading, or curative resection.
  • CONCLUSION: Occult tumor cells are frequent in apparently tumor-free lymph nodes of pancreatic cancer patients and often overlooked in conventional histopathology.
  • Occult tumor cells in lymph nodes of pancreatic cancer patients could be used to stratify adjuvant therapy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Predictors for patterns of failure after pancreaticoduodenectomy in ampullary cancer.
  • BACKGROUND: Ampullary cancer has the best prognosis in periampullary malignancy but unpredicted early recurrence after resection is frequent.
  • METHODS: Information was collected from patients who underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy with regional lymphadenectomy for ampullary cancer in high-volume hospitals between January 1989 and April 2005.
  • The 5-year disease-specific survival rate was 45.7%; 77.7% for stage I, 28.5% for stage II, and 16.5% for stage III; and 63.7% for node-negative versus 19.1% for node-positive patients.
  • Pancreatic invasion and lymph node involvement were both predictors for survival of patients with ampullary cancer.
  • CONCLUSION: Pancreaticoduodenectomy with regional lymphadenectomy is adequate for early-stage ampullary cancer but a dismal outcome can be predicted in patients with lymph node metastasis and pancreatic invasion.

  • AIMS: To gain insight into the quality of pancreatic cancer surgery in 10 low-volume (median sized) hospitals, each serving 150,000-250,000 people, in the Comprehensive Cancer Centre South (CCCS) area and of referred patients to academic centres to determine the need for further regionalization.
  • METHOD: The population-based Eindhoven Cancer Registry was used to select all patients in the CCCS area with pancreatic, peri-ampullary and ampullary cancer diagnosed between January 1, 1995 and April 30, 2000 (N = 1130).
  • RESULTS: For all pancreatic carcinoma resections, the 3-month survival rate was 82%, varying from 95% for referred patients to 76% for patients treated within the region (p = 0.014).
  • Surgically treated patients who were referred to university hospitals outside the CCCS area were younger, more often male, more often diagnosed with pTNM stage III, exhibited less comorbidity and had a higher socio-economic status than patients surgically treated within the region.

  • Unlike uniformly truncated DNA released from apoptotic nondiseased cells, DNA released from dead cancer cells varies in size.
  • We developed a novel method to measure the ratio of longer to shorter DNA fragments (DNA integrity) in serum as a potential biomarker for patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) or periampullary cancers (PACs).
  • METHODS: Sera from 32 patients with CRC (3 stage I, 14 stage II, 6 stage III, and 9 stage IV patients), 19 patients with PACs (2 stage I, 9 stage II, 1 stage III, and 7 stage IV patients), and 51 healthy volunteers were assessed by quantitative real-time PCR of ALU repeats (ALU-qPCR) with 2 sets of primers (115 and 247 bp) amplifying different lengths of DNA.
  • Serum DNA integrity was significantly increased for stage I/II and III/IV CRC and stage I/II and III/IV PACs (P = 0.002, P = 0.006, P = 0.022, and P <0.0001, respectively).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Osteopontin-positive infiltrating tumor-associated macrophages in bulky ampullary cancer predict survival.
  • PURPOSE: Tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) promote cancer cell proliferation and distant metastases.
  • Osteopontin (OPN) is overexpressed in several human cancer cells and in TAMs.
  • Therefore, we set out to determine the role of OPN-expressing macrophages in cancer.
  • RESULTS: In 100 ampullary cancers, diffuse cytoplasmic positivity for OPN was found in infiltrating TAMs in 36 patients and marginal TAMs in 32 patients; OPN(+) macrophages were absent in 32 patients.
  • Expression patterns of OPN in TAMs were associated with pancreatic invasion, tumor stage, TNM stage, lymphovascular invasion and recurrence with peritoneal carcinomatosis.
  • Macrophage-associated cytokine expression in ampullary cancer cells was also assessed; levels of macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) in cancer cells were higher than in normal duodenal mucosa.
  • EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: Specimens from ampullary cancer patients at National Cheng Kung University Hospital were collected for immunohistochemistry.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Expression of OPN and location of TAMs in bulky ampullary cancer predict recurrence.
  • In addition, cytoplasmic staining of MIF is enhanced in ampullary cancer cells.

  • [Title] Descriptive study of gallbladder, extrahepatic bile duct, and ampullary cancers in the United States, 1997-2002.
  • OBJECTIVE: Few investigations of biliary tract (gallbladder, extrahepatic bile duct, ampulla of Vater) cancers have been conducted because of the relative rarity of these malignancies.
  • RESULTS: The AAIR for gallbladder cancer among men (0.82 per 100,000) was significantly lower than the AAIR among women (1.45 per 100,000).
  • By contrast, rates for extrahepatic bile duct and ampullary cancers were significantly higher among men (0.93 per 100,000 and 0.70 per 100,000, respectively) than among women (0.61 per 100,000 and 0.45 per 100,000, respectively).
  • White men and women had significantly lower AAIRs for gallbladder cancer compared with other racial-ethnic groups, with the highest rates among Hispanics, American Indian-Alaska Natives, and Asian-Pacific Islanders.
  • Asian-Pacific Islanders and Hispanics of both sexes had the highest AAIRs for extrahepatic bile duct and ampullary cancers.
  • Ampullary tumors were more likely to be diagnosed at a localized or regional stage than were cancers of the gallbladder and extrahepatic bile duct.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This population-based study suggests distinct etiologies of anatomic subsites of biliary tract cancer and caution against analytic investigations of all biliary tract cancers combined.

  • AIM: Serum tumour markers carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), carbohydrate antigen 19-9 (CA19-9) and CA242 were investigated to evaluate the values of single and combined test in the diagnosis and prognosis of pancreatic cancer.
  • RESULTS: The sensitivity of CA19-9 alone was the highest in pancreatic cancer patients (80%), but the specificity was significantly lower than that of CEA and CA242 (P<0.01).
  • CONCLUSION: The diagnostic rate of CA19-9 in pancreatic cancer is better than that of CEA and CA242.
  • High levels of serum markers are associated with advanced stage of the disease.

  • Although skin metastasis from a malignant tumor of an internal organ usually occurs at an advanced disease stage, there has been no prior report of a cutaneous acral metastasis from ampullary carcinoma to date.
  • We report a 71-year old male patient with cutaneous metastasis from an ampullary adenocarcinoma.
  • The patient had a history of pylorus preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy for carcinoma of the ampulla of Vater two years prior to presentation.
  • This case illustrates that cutaneous metastasis from ampullary carcinoma has a poor prognosis.

  • [Title] Clinicopathologic analysis of ampullary neoplasms in 450 patients: implications for surgical strategy and long-term prognosis.
  • BACKGROUND: Whether ampullary neoplasms are best surgically managed by pancreaticoduodenectomy versus local ampullectomy is controversial.
  • We sought to examine the outcome of patients undergoing pancreaticoduodenectomy versus ampullectomy, as well as to identify factors predictive of lymph node metastasis in patients with ampullary neoplasms.
  • METHODS: Between 1970 and 2007, 450 patients who underwent surgical resection of ampullary adenoma or adenocarcinoma were identified from a prospective, single-institution database.
  • Median tumor size was similar for adenomas associated with an adenocarcinoma (2.5 cm) versus adenomas without invasive cancer (2.9 cm; P=0.71).
  • Specifically, risk of lymph node metastasis increased with T stage (T1, 28.0%; T2, 50.9%; T3, 71.7%; T4, 77.3%; P<0.001).
  • CONCLUSION: When surgery is indicated, radical resection is required for early invasive adenocarcinoma of the ampulla of Vater, as lymph node metastases are present in nearly 30% of patients with T1 disease.
  • Pancreaticoduodenectomy should be the preferred approach for most ampullary neoplasms that require surgical resection.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Pancreatic Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Cancers of the ampulla of Vater, distal common bile duct, and pancreas are known to have dismal prognosis.
  • It is often reported that ampullary cancers are less aggressive relative to the other periampullary carcinomas.
  • METHODS: We reviewed the records of all patients who underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy for periampullary carcinoma between 1992 and 2007 at the Ohio State University Medical Center.
  • RESULTS: 346 consecutive periampullary malignancies (249 pancreatic cancers, 79 ampullary carcinomas, 18 extrahepatic cholangiocarcinomas) treated by pancreaticoduodenectomy were identified.
  • Pancreatic cancer histology correlated with the shortest median survival (17.1 months), followed by cholangiocarcinoma (17.9 months) and ampullary carcinoma (44.3 months) (P < 0.001).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although ampullary cancers have the best prognosis overall, when controlled for tumor stage, only presence of neural invasion and nodal metastasis predict poor survival following pancreaticoduodenectomy.

  • [Title] Limitations of ampullectomy in the treatment of nonfamilial ampullary neoplasms.
  • BACKGROUND: Pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) is the standard surgical management of invasive ampullary neoplasms.
  • METHODS: We identified 140 consecutive cases of nonfamilial ampullary neoplasms from our prospective institutional database over a 7-year period (1996-2003).
  • AMP was converted to PD because of the extent of disease in three and an intraoperative diagnosis of invasive cancer in five patients.
  • Intraoperative frozen section had a diagnostic accuracy of 84%; two cases of high-grade dysplasia and invasive cancer were missed.
  • Patients with invasive cancer treated by AMP had a decreased recurrence-free and disease-specific survival compared with those treated by PD.
  • Although both vascular invasion and tumor stage independently predicted lymphatic metastases, both were limited by their sensitivity.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The reduced morbidity and mortality of AMP makes this the preferred treatment for benign lesions of the ampulla.

  • [Title] Tumor-related factors and patient's age influence survival after resection for ampullary adenocarcinoma.
  • BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: The majority of surgeons agree that ampullary adenocarcinoma should be removed by partial pancreatoduodenectomy.
  • METHODS: We documented, prospectively, 25 consecutive patients with adenocarcinoma of the papilla of Vater in whom pylorus-preserving pancreatoduodenectomy was performed.
  • Clinical data, pathology reports, International Union Against Cancer (UICC) tumor stage, postoperative morbidity, mortality, and long-term follow-up results were evaluated.
  • Tumor size, N status, UICC stage, lymphatic invasion, blood vessel infiltration, R0 resection, and age of patient at the cutoff of 70 years were independent predictors of survival on univariate analysis.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Pancreatoduodenectomy for ampullary carcinoma is reasonable in terms of postoperative morbidity and mortality.

  • BACKGROUND: American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) staging for pancreatic adenocarcinoma is a validated predictor of prognosis but insufficiently discriminates postresection survival.
  • METHODS: Resected pancreatic ductal and ampullary adenocarcinomas (n = 50) were analyzed for loss of heterozygosity (LOH) at 15 markers including 5q(APC), 6q(TBSP2), 9p(p16), 10q(PTEN), 12q(MDM2), 17p(TP53), and 18q(DCC/SMAD4).
  • AJCC stage was: Ia/b (3), IIa (16), IIb (31).
  • Stage, nodal and margin status were not predictive of survival.
  • CONCLUSION: LOH and KRAS mutations indicate aggressive tumor biology and correlate strongly with survival in resected pancreatic ductal and ampullary carcinomas.

  • [Title] Recurrence and prognostic factors of ampullary carcinoma after radical resection: comparison with distal extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma.
  • BACKGROUND: Ampullary carcinoma is often considered to have a better prognosis than distal extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma.
  • METHODS: Clinicopathologic factors and the long-term outcomes of 163 patients with ampullary carcinoma after radical resection were retrospectively evaluated and compared with those of 91 patients with distal extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma.
  • RESULTS: Among the 163 ampullary carcinomas, T1 stage, well-differentiated tumors and perineural invasion were 45 (28%), 73 (45%), and 23 (14%), respectively, whereas, only five (6%) were T1 stage, 15 (17%) were well differentiated, and 63 (69%) showed perineural invasion (p < 0.001, for all) in distal extrahepatic cholangiocarcinomas.
  • More patients with distal extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma had liver metastasis than ampullary carcinoma (24% vs. 10%, p = 0.004).
  • Multivariate analysis identified venous invasion and perineural invasion as risk factors for recurrence of ampullary carcinoma after radical resection.
  • Overall five-year survival of patients with ampullary cancer was higher than that of patients with distal extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (68% vs. 54%; p = 0.033).
  • CONCLUSION: Earlier diagnosis and the less frequent occurrence of pathological factors associated with tumor invasiveness in ampullary carcinoma than in distal extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma may explain its association with a better prognosis.

  • [Title] Survival after resection of ampullary carcinoma: a national population-based study.
  • BACKGROUND: Ampullary cancer is the second most common periampullary cancer, with a resection and survival rate more favorable than that for pancreatic cancer.
  • Our objective was to complete a population-based analysis of patients undergoing resection for ampullary carcinoma and compare it with outcomes in the published literature.
  • METHODS: Patients diagnosed with ampullary cancer reported in the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results program (1988-2003) were collected.
  • Primary outcome was survival (5-year), and secondary outcome was stage at presentation.
  • RESULTS: Of the 3292 ampullary cancer patients, 1301 (40%) underwent resection.
  • Thirty-seven percent presented with stage I tumors.
  • The cancer registry data showed less early stage disease, higher perioperative mortality, and lower 5-year survival compared with published reports.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This is the largest population-based analysis of ampullary carcinoma.
  • Resection rates and survival at the national level are lower, in general, compared with cancer center reports, which may have implications for regionalizing these procedures.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Is blind pancreaticoduodenectomy justified for patients with ampullary neoplasms?
  • Our aim in this study was to determine whether blind-PD is also justified for ampullary neoplasms.
  • METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the records of all patients with presumed resectable ampullary neoplasms treated at the National Taiwan University Hospital from 1998 to 2008.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our data support a selective use of blind-PD because (1) a significant portion (65%) of benign ampullary neoplasms can be safely and effectively treated by AMP, (2) blind-PD does not treat ampullary cancer at earlier stage, and (3) blind-PD is associated with significantly more complications and significantly longer hospital stay than AMP.
  • However, blind-PD is strongly recommended for patients with large ampullary neoplasms (>3 cm in diameter), with jaundice, or with malignant endoscopic appearance.

  • [Title] Ep-CAM expression in pancreatic and ampullary carcinomas: frequency and prognostic relevance.
  • Patients with ampullary cancer have a better prognosis but adjuvant therapy needs further improvement.
  • Thus, the aim of this study was to investigate Ep-CAM expression and its potential prognostic impact in pancreatic and ampullary carcinomas.
  • METHODS: Ep-CAM expression was investigated retrospectively by immunohistochemistry in paraffin-embedded primary tumour tissue samples from a series of consecutive patients with pancreatic (n = 153) and ampullary cancer (n = 34).
  • RESULTS: Ep-CAM overexpression was observed in 85 of 153 pancreatic cancer specimens (56%) and in 29 of 34 ampullary cancer samples (85%).
  • However, subgroup analyses showed that Ep-CAM overexpression correlated with shorter overall survival among patients with ampullary cancer and advanced stage pancreatic cancer.
  • Furthermore, in ampullary cancer, Ep-CAM overexpression was found to correlate with tumour stage.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Ep-CAM overexpression was detectable in the majority of cases with pancreatic and ampullary cancer.

  • [Title] Tumor budding as a strong prognostic indicator in invasive ampullary adenocarcinomas.
  • Prognostication of invasive ampullary adenocarcinomas (AACs) and their stratification into appropriate management categories have been highly challenging owing to a lack of well-established predictive parameters.
  • In colorectal cancers, recent studies have shown that tumor budding confers a worse prognosis and correlates significantly with nodal metastasis and recurrence; however, this has not been evaluated in AAC.To investigate the prevalence, significance, and clinical correlations of tumor budding in AAC, 244 surgically resected, stringently defined, invasive AAC were analyzed for tumor budding---defined as the presence of more than or equal to 5 isolated single cancer cells or clusters composed of fewer than 5 cancer cells per field measuring 0.785 mm using a 20× objective lens in the stroma of the invasive front.
  • When the clinicopathologic features and survival of the 2 groups were compared, the AACs with high-budding had larger invasion size (19 mm vs. 13 mm; P<0.001), an unrecognizable/absent preinvasive component (57% vs. 82%; P<0.005), infiltrative growth (51% vs. 2%; P<0.001), nonintestinal-type histology (72% vs. 46%; P<0.001), worse differentiation (58% vs. 10%; P<0.001), more lymphatic (74% vs. 10%; P<0.001), and perineural invasion (28% vs. 2%; P<0.001); more lymph node metastasis (44% vs. 17%; P<0.001), higher T-stage (T3 and T4) (42% vs. 10%; P<0.001), and more aggressive behavior (mean survival: 50 mo vs. 32 mo; 3-year and 5-year survival rates: 93% vs. 41% and 68% vs. 24%, respectively; P<0.001).
  • Furthermore, using a multivariable Cox regression model, tumor budding was found to be an independent predictor of survival (P=0.01), which impacts prognosis (hazard ratio: 2.6) even more than T-stage and lymph node metastasis (hazard ratio: 1.9 and 1.8, respectively).In conclusion, tumor budding is frequently encountered in AAC.
  • High-budding is a strong independent predictor of overall survival, with a prognostic correlation stronger than the 2 established parameters: T-stage and lymph node metastasis.

  • [Title] Expression of the caudal-type homeodomain transcription factor CDX2 is related to clinical outcome in biliary tract carcinoma.
  • Recent studies have reported that expression of CDX2 was an independent marker of outcome in patients with resected adenocarcinoma of ampulla of Vater, gastric cancer, and colon cancer.
  • The clinicopathological significance of CDX2 expression has hitherto remained unclear in biliary tract carcinoma (BTC).
  • The correlation between expression of CDX2 and clinicopathological factors, including overall survival, tumor location, tumor stage, and degree of tumor differentiation, was examined in patients with BTC.
  • Factors influencing survival on univariate analysis were tumor stage (P < 0.00001), degree of tumor differentiation (P = 0.0002), and CDX2 expression (P = 0.01).
  • On multivariate analysis using the Cox proportional hazard model, CDX2 expression and tumor stage were independent prognostic factors in patients with BTC.
  • CONCLUSION: Expression of CDX2 was an independent indicator of outcome in patients with BTC in addition to tumor stage and tumor differentiation.
  • The mechanism by which CDX2 expression influences behavior of biliary tract carcinoma needs further investigation.
