  • PURPOSE: To establish the diagnostic accuracy of MRI including MR cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) compared with helical CT in the differentiation of malignant and benign lesions in the periampullary region.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: Fifty-one patients (27 M, 24 F, mean age 66 years, range 39-86 years) with obstructive jaundice and sonographic evidence of intra- and extrahepatic bile duct dilatation (n=31) or suspicion of periampullary tumor, based on previously performed ultrasound and/or CT examination (n=20), were studied.
  • Lesion status (differentiation of malignant versus benign) was rated on a 5-point diagnostic confidence scale.
  • CONCLUSION: MRI with MRCP was significantly more accurate than CT in differentiating between malignant and benign lesions in patients with suspected periampullary tumors, mainly due to the information obtained on the MRCP images of the biliary and pancreatic duct anatomy.

  • [Title] Tumors of the ampulla of vater: histopathologic classification and predictors of survival.
  • STUDY DESIGN: We analyzed patient demographics, presentation, survival (mean followup 44 months), and tumor histology for 157 consecutive ampullary tumors resected from 1989 to 2006.
  • RESULTS: There were 33 benign (32 adenomas and 1 paraganglioma) and 124 malignant (118 adenocarcinomas and 6 neuroendocrine) tumors.
  • Size of tumor did not predict survival, nor did cribriform/papillary features, dirty necrosis, apical mucin, or nuclear atypia.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In addition to other factors, tumor type (intestinal versus pancreaticobiliary) had a major effect on survival in patients with ampullary adenocarcinoma.

  • Wwox has been understudied in pancreatobiliary cancers, especially in relation to other involved tumor suppressors.
  • We have assessed the status of the Fhit and Wwox proteins encoded by DNA damage susceptible chromosome fragile sites encompassed by FHIT and WWOX tumor suppressor genes.
  • METHODS: Pancreatic, gallbladder and ampullary cancers, normal pancreas, chronic pancreatitis, and benign gallbladder specimens were stained for expression of Fhit, Fhit effector protein Fdxr, Wwox, and other tumor suppressors by immunohistochemistry, and comparisons were made between benign and malignant tissue.
  • RESULTS: Fhit and Wwox were ubiquitously expressed in benign samples and significantly and coordinately reduced in pancreatic, gallbladder, and ampullary cancers.
  • Neither Fhit nor Wwox expression correlated with expression of other tumor suppressors or with clinicopathologic characteristics measured.
  • CONCLUSION: Loss of Fhit and Wwox expression does not predict tumor progression or patient survival, suggesting that loss of expression of genes at the exquisitely replication stress sensitive chromosome fragile regions is an early event in the pathogenesis of cancers of the gallbladder, pancreas, and ampulla.

  • [Title] Laparoscopic transduodenal ampullectomy for benign ampullary tumors.
  • INTRODUCTION: Transduodenal ampullectomy (TDA) can be performed for benign and premalignant tumors of the ampulla of Vater (AOV) as an alternative to pancreaticoduodenectomy.
  • In this report 2 cases of benign ampullary tumor that were treated by totally laparoscopic TDA.
  • Abdominal CT, endoscopy, and endoscopic ultrasonography revealed a 2.5-cm-sized tumor located at the duodenal papilla with possible extension to the ampullary sphincter.
  • CONCLUSIONS: These 2 cases demonstrate that laparoscopic TDA is a feasible operative procedure in selective patients with a benign or premalignant tumor at the AOV.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Benign tumors and tumor-like conditions in the ampullary area are uncommon, and there are extremely rare cases of adenomyoma (AM) and adenomyomatous hyperplasia (AMH).
  • The EGCs showed no expression of MUC1 or MUC4, both of which were identified as malignant tumor markers in our previous series of mucin expression studies in pancreatobiliary tumors.
  • CONCLUSIONS: A combined evaluation of IHC findings may be effective in the detection of AM and AMH, and also in distinguishing benign periampullary lesions, such as AM and AMH, from ampulla of Vater adenocarcinoma, thus avoiding excessive surgery.

  • A variety of pathologic conditions can cause abnormalities of the ampulla of Vater.
  • A bulging papilla is frequently encountered at computed tomography (CT) and can be seen in healthy individuals as well as in patients with various pathologic conditions such as papillitis, ampullary cancer, and intraductal papillary mucinous tumor.
  • Increased targetlike enhancement of the papilla is likely to represent a benign condition such as papillitis, whereas an enhancing polypoid mass or focal asymmetric or irregular thickening with prolonged enhancement in the ampulla of Vater indicates a malignant condition such as ampullary or periampullary carcinoma.

  • Since no definitive clinical criteria have been established to differentiate malignant from benign mesenchymal tumors, preoperative cytology was not available and surgical removal of the 3.5 cm tumor was feasible, the patient was treated conservatively.
  • The morbidity and mortality rates of the more radical and invasive duodenopancreatectomy, in particular when dealing with a soft pancreatic stump with a narrow pancreatic duct, are, in our opinion, too high for a potentially benign disease when the more conservative procedure is feasible.

  • [Title] Differentiation of ampullary tumor from benign papillary stricture by thin-section multidetector CT.
  • The objective of this paper was to determine the criteria for differentiation of ampullary tumor from benign papillary stricture using thin-section multidetector CT images.
  • Multidetector CT images with 2.5 mm slice-thickness in 57 consecutive patients (24 with ampulla of Vater tumor and 33 with benign papillary stricture) with extrahepatic duct dilatation due to ampullary obstruction were reviewed retrospectively.
  • Multiple logistic regression analysis showed the papilla/papillary mass size was the only independently differentiating variable of ampullary tumor from benign stricture (P = 0.016) with an odds ratio of 2.424 (95% confidence interval, 1.179-4.903).
  • Ampullary tumor and benign papillary stricture could be effectively differentiated by thin-section multidetector CT based on papilla/papillary mass size.

  • The therapeutic approach to benign ampullary tumors remains unsettled.
  • The ESP procedure is a curative treatment option for benign papillary tumors, but ESP raises concerns about a relatively high risk for procedure-related complications such as pancreatitis.
  • METHODS: Between September 2000 and June 2008, 36 patients with ampullary tumors confined to the mucosa and no intraductal tumor growth underwent ESP.
  • Complete resections with tumor-free lateral and basal margins was achieved for 81% of the cases.
  • CONCLUSION: The ESP procedure can be feasible for benign ampullary adenoma, HGIN, and noninvasive cancer without intraductal tumor growth.

  • [Transliterated title] Tumorile benigne ale ampulei lui Vater--rezecţie locală sau radicală?
  • Duodenal ampulla is a complex anatomical and histological site and a tumor may arise from one of three types of epithelium: duodenal mucosa, pancreatic duct and distal common bile duct.
  • Neoplasia from each of these locations may exhibit different growth models and though it is difficult to establish their origin before operation, surgical treatment for all resectable tumors is essentially alike.
  • Benign adenomas appear to be a frequent precursor of carcinoma of the ampulla of Vater, therefore, a local resection can lead to an under treated early cancer which would have benefited from a radical excision, with a much better long term result.
  • We consider acceptable to perform an ampullectomy whenever is possible to safely state the benignity of the tumor or when a major procedure is hazardous.

  • [Title] DNA image cytometry in the differential diagnosis of benign and malignant lesions of the bile duct, the pancreatic duct and the papilla of Vater.
  • The value of DNA image cytometry in the differential diagnosis of benign and malignant epithelial lesions was tested analyzing 174 specimens from the biliary tract, the pancreatic ducts and the papilla of Vater.
  • RESULTS: In comparison with the benign cases (n=120), the mean values of all DNA cytometric variables were markedly increased in the malignant (n=54) (p<0.001).
  • An aneuploid DNA stemline was present in 76% of the tumor cases.
  • The occurrence of 9cEEs were completely restricted to malignant specimens (specificity: 100%), but only present in 50% of the tumor cases.
  • As an additional finding in some benign cases, DNA polyploidy up to 8c could be demonstrated (11/120, 9.2%).
  • CONCLUSION: DNA image cytometry represents a relevant tool in the objective identification of malignant changes of specimens of the biliary tract, the pancreatic duct or the papilla of Vater, if suitable variables are used for DNA data interpretation.

  • [Title] Endoscopic resection of benign tumors of the papilla of vater.
  • Most benign papillary tumors are adenomas which can potentially undergo the adenoma-carcinoma-sequence making complete removal mandatory for curative therapy.
  • For benign looking papillary tumors, endoscopic papillectomy serves as a diagnostic tool and should be considered as first line procedure regardless of age.
  • The following article details the approach to patients with benign papillary tumor and the technique of endoscopic papillectomy.

  • Patients with jaundice, gastrointestinal bleeding, imaging findings showing tumor invasion, and larger tumor size were significantly more frequently treated by blind-PD.
  • Final pathological diagnosis was benign in ten of 64 blind-PD-treated patients.
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Refinement of clinicopathologic factors may reduce the occasional PD for benign disease and AMP for malignancy.

  • We present the case of very rare periampullary gangliocytic paraganglioma in which we preferred proximal duodenopancreatectomy to local resection of the ampula of Vater because of not clear preoperative pathohistology and biologic behavior of the tumor.
  • Although the definitive examination of the specimen proved its benign character we consider our procedure reasonable.

  • [Title] Correlation of endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) for differential diagnostics between inflammatory and neoplastic lesions of the papilla of Vater and the peripapillary region with results of histologic investigation.
  • PURPOSE: There is currently no imaging procedure that allows precise differentiation between inflammatory and malignant lesions of the papilla of Vater (papilla) in a satisfying manner.
  • The aim was to study whether endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) as an initial diagnostic step 1. may have the potential to distinguish between different tissue characteristics, such as tumor growth or inflammation of the papilla, because of its high resolution capacity and 2. is superior to the accuracy of histologic investigations of mucosal biopsies by means of a prospective collection and retrospective evaluation of the data.
  • Diagnosis was set up using EUS, which tried to differentiate between benign or malignant lesions of the papilla.
  • Histologic investigation of the 133 tumor lesions of the papilla became possible by taking deep transpapillary biopsies following papillotomy, papillectomy or by obtaining specimens from surgical resections.
  • RESULTS: Using EUS, differentiation between inflammatory and neoplastic lesions of the papilla or the peripapillary region was correct in 109 of 133 cases (82%), while suspected EUS-based diagnosis "papillitis stenosans" (inflammatory lesions of the papilla of Vater) in 4 subjects (3%) was corrected to adenoma and carcinoma, respectively (n=2 each) by histologic investigation.
  • In 20 of 133 patients with suspected neoplastic lesions, inflammatory lesion of the papilla of Vater was detected resulting in an overall sensitivity of 92.3% and specificity of 75.3%.
