  • [Title] Metastatic adult granulosa cell tumor mimicking a benign pancreatic cyst.
  • We report an unusual case of metastatic adult granulosa cell tumor in the head of pancreas mimicking a benign pancreatic cyst in a 43-year-old female.
  • Clinically, it was considered a benign cyst of the pancreas based on its appearance by imaging and that repeated fine-needle aspiration and cytologic examination of cystic fluid failed to identify malignant cells.
  • The cyst in her pancreas grew slowly during the 15 months of close follow-up.
  • Subsequent drainage and open biopsy of the cyst wall established the diagnosis of metastatic adult granulosa cell tumor that was confirmed in pancreaticoduodenectomy specimen.
  • Immunohistochemical study and clinical history were critical to make the correct diagnosis and to differentiate this tumor from other more commonly encountered cystic neoplasms of the pancreas.

  • [Transliterated title] Indicaciones y resultados de la cirugía conservadora en las lesiones localizadas en la cabeza pancreática.
  • INTRODUCTION: Surgery that preserves the duodenopancreatic region has become well-established in chronic pancreatitis (CP) and some groups have begun to use these techniques to treat benign tumors and even those with uncertain potential malignancy.
  • Between 1996 and 2006, we carried out PS in 24 patients with disease localized in the head of the pancreas.
  • PS was defined as any of the following techniques: resection of the head of the pancreas with duodenal preservation (RHPDP), uncinatectomy (UC) and cystic tumor enucleation (EN).
  • Surgery was performed for CP in 11 patients, serous cystoadenoma in 4, intraductal papillary mucinous tumor in 5 and miscellaneous injuries in the four remaining patients.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Eighty-six patients with pancreatic-ductal strictures composed of 71 malignant and 15 benign diseases were evaluated.
  • Malignant diseases included 70 pancreatic carcinomas and 1 endocrine tumor; benign diseases included the following: 7 chronic pancreatitis, 3 autoimmune pancreatitis, 3 idiopathic pancreatic-ductal strictures, and 2 pancreatic cysts.
  • Sensitivities for pancreatic carcinoma in the head, body, and tail of the pancreas were 91%, 100%, and 91%, respectively.
  • Sensitivities for pancreatic carcinoma with a tumor of <20 mm, 21 to 40 mm, 41 to 60 mm, and >61 mm were 95%, 92%, 100%, and 100%, respectively.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Benign or malignant pancreatic-ductal strictures were accurately discriminated by scraping cytology with a guidewire during ERCP.
  • The technique yielded high diagnostic sensitivities in pancreatic carcinoma, regardless of the location or size of the tumor.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • CONTEXT: The pancreas is an unusual site for a hemangioma in an infant.
  • A child with obstructive jaundice caused by a pancreatic hemangioma is presented and management strategies for this benign tumor are discussed.
  • An abdominal ultrasound scan and magnetic resonance imaging showed an enhancing mass in the head of the pancreas.
  • At laparotomy, a wedge biopsy of the pancreatic tumor was taken and a tube cholecystostomy inserted.
  • The tumor subsequently regressed spontaneously and was no longer visible on follow-up imaging two years later.
  • Pancreatic resection should be avoided since the natural history of these benign tumors is that of spontaneous involution.

  • [Title] Multiple synchronous serous cystadenomas of the pancreas: uncommon CT and MRI findings.
  • Serous cystadenomas (SCAs) of the pancreas are benign cystic tumors.
  • This attitude is mostly defendable for lesions of the pancreas head or multiple lesions distributed throughout the entire pancreas, as their surgical resection is still associated with significant morbidity.
  • We present a case of huge (>10 cm), multiple asymptomatic SCAs, not associated with von Hippel-Lindau disease, involving the entire pancreas.
  • Tumor markers were within normal ranges.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Duodenum-preserving total pancreatic head resection for cystic neoplasm: a limited but cancer-preventive procedure.
  • BACKGROUND: Cystic neoplastic lesions of the pancreas are found in up to 10% of all pancreatic lesions.
  • A malignant transformation of cystic neoplasia is observed in intraductal papillary mucinous tumor (IPMN) lesions in 60% and in mucinous cystic tumor (MCN) lesions in up to 30%.
  • For cystic neoplasia located monocentrically in the pancreatic head and that do not have an association with an invasive pancreatic cancer, the duodenum-preserving total head resection has been used in recent time as a limited surgical procedure.
  • PATIENTS: An indication to duodenum-preserving total pancreatic head resection is considered for patients who do not have clinical signs of an advanced cancer in the lesion and who have main-duct IPMN and monocentric MCN lesions.
  • The application of a duodenum-preserving total pancreatic head resection in patients with asymptomatic cystic lesion is based on the size of the tumor and the tumor relation to the pancreatic ducts.
  • RESULTS: Duodenum-preserving total pancreatic head resection is used in several modifications.
  • The surgical procedure is a limited pancreatic head resection which necessitates segmental resection of the peripapillary duodenum.
  • The long-term outcome is determined by completeness of resection for both -- benign and malignant -- entities.
  • CONCLUSION: A duodenum-preserving total pancreatic head resection is a limited surgical procedure for patients who suffer a local monocentric, cystic neoplastic lesion in the pancreatic head.
  • Absence of an advanced pancreatic cancer and completeness of extirpation of the benign tumor determine the long-term outcome.
  • In regards to the location of the lesion in the pancreatic head, several modifications have been applied with low hospital morbidity and mortality below 1%.

  • BACKGROUND/AIMS: The occurrence of concomitant pancreatic endocrine neoplasm (PEN) and intraductal papillary neoplasm (IPMN) of the pancreas has rarely been reported.
  • The median size of the endocrine neoplasms was 14 mm (range 2-30) and they occurred in the head (n = 3), body (n = 2) and tail (n = 5).
  • Seven of the PENs were classified as benign, 2 were potentially malignant, and 1 was frankly malignant with lymph node involvement.
  • The IPMNs were found in the tail (n = 4), head (n = 3), head and body (n = 1), body (n = 1) and the entire pancreas (n = 1).
  • Five of these neoplasms were benign, 2 were borderline and 3 were malignant (1 carcinoma in situ).

  • In this report we describe the case of a patient with a single primary solitary fibrous tumor of the pancreatic head with a review of the literature.
  • The tumour showed immunoreactivity for CD34, CD99, bcl-2, vimentin and smooth muscle actin.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Extra pleural solitary fibrous tumor are often benign lesions.
  • In the pancreas only 2 cases have been described so far.
  • Other mesenchymal tumours that may occur in the pancreas include leiomyosarcoma, tumours of the peripheral nerve sheath, fibrous histiocytic tumours and rare vascular tumours.
  • The surgical approach is fundamental for the treatment of solitary fibrous tumour.

  • [Title] Xanthogranulomatous lesion of the pancreas mimicking pancreatic cancer.
  • It is commonly accepted that Xanthogranulomatous lesion of the pancreas (XGP) is hardly distinguishable from pancreatic neoplasms.
  • Laboratory tests showed the presence of inflammation, and a Positron emission tomography (PET) revealed positive uptake in the pancreas head and tail, and spleen.
  • Intraductal ultrasonography (IOUS) showed a tumor located at the pancreas tail.
  • Under a preoperative diagnosis of intraductal papillary mucinous carcinoma (IPMC) at the pancreas tail with metastasis to the spleen, distal pancreatectomy and splenectomy were performed.
  • Although XGP is a benign condition, most cases are treated by surgery same as our case.

  • [Title] Differential diagnosis of cystic tumors of the pancreas by endoscopic ultrasonography.
  • Neoplastic cystic tumors include mucinous cystic neoplasm (MCN), intraductal papillary-mucinous neoplasm (IPMN), and serous cystic neoplasm (SCN).
  • MCNs and IPMNs have the potential to progress to a malignant state, whereas SCNs are known for their almost benign behavior.
  • Thus, in order to make management decisions, it is important to distinguish between potentially malignant (MCN and IPMN), and benign (SCN and NNC) tumors.
  • The aim of this study was to retrospectively investigate the value of endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) for the differential diagnosis of cystic tumors of the pancreas.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 76 patients with cystic tumors of the pancreas were preoperatively examined by EUS.
  • The EUS findings relevant to distinguishing between potentially malignant and benign were analyzed statistically.
  • IPMN, however, occurred predominantly in men, and in the pancreatic head.
  • In univariate analysis, age, tumor size, locularity, the number of cystic formation, cystic component, and appearance were significant variables.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The characteristics of cystic tumors of the pancreas revealed by EUS are useful for their differential diagnosis.

  • [Title] Pancreatic endocrine tumor of uncertain behavior: a case report.
  • Non-functioning pancreatic endocrine tumors originate from the endocrine part of the pancreas but are not associated with a distinct hormonal syndrome.
  • A rare case is presented of a 49-year-old woman with a well-differentiated endocrine tumor of uncertain behavior that presented with intermittent pain in the epigastrium radiating to the right subcostal region.
  • Computed tomography showed a well-defined and circumscribed solid mass in the pancreas head.
  • Microscopically, the tumor had relatively uniform cells with oval nuclei that coated trabecular and pseudoglandular structures, which also showed 1 mitosis per 10 VVP and proliferation activity measured with Ki67 of less than 2%.
  • Immunohistochemical analyses for NSE, chromogranin and synapthophysin were positive, which along with its size (over 2 cm in diameter) and reported angioinvasion indicated the diagnosis of pancreatic endocrine tumor of uncertain behavior.
  • Although mostly considered as malignant, large non-functioning pancreatic endocrine tumors can sometimes express benign or uncertain behavior; therefore, a large number of factors should always be considered when determining the biological nature of these tumors.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND/AIMS: Less invasive pancreatic head resection, such as duodenum-preserving pancreatic head resection (DPPHR) has been introduced for the treatment of pancreatoduodenal lesions, especially for benign conditions, for reducing surgical stress and maintaining exocrine and endocrine function of the residual pancreas in consideration of postoperative quality of life (QOL).
  • METHODOLOGY: We investigated the feasibility of a new technique employing three-dimensional (3D) virtual pancreatography using multi-detector CT (MDCT) with carbon dioxide (CO2) gas as a negative contrast agent for detection of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) of the pancreas requiring minimally invasive surgery.
  • RESULTS: Contrast-enhanced MDCT scan of the abdomen diagnosed 4- to 20-mm multilocular septated cysts in the head-uncinate process of the pancreas.
  • Endoscopic retrograde pancreatography (ERP) showed multiple cystic lesions in the head-uncinate process with mild dilatation in the remaining pancreatic duct.
  • Virtual CO2 MDCT pancreatography demonstrated that all cystic lesions of the pancreas were contained within the area of the head-uncinate process of the pancreas.
  • We performed DPPHR, and surgical margin of the patient's remnant pancreas was determined as non-malignant by intraoperative histology.
  • There was no residual pancreatic cyst and tumor after surgery.
  • The resected tumor was diagnosed as branch duct type intraductal papillary mucinous adenocarcinoma.
  • With respect to preservation of the endocrine and exocrine functions of the pancreas, DPPHR is a highly effective surgical procedure due to limited surgical resection.

  • [Title] Lymphoepithelial cyst of the pancreas that was difficult to distinguish from branch duct-type intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm: report of a case.
  • A computed tomography (CT) scan showed a 30-mmdiameter, multilocular cyst in the head of the pancreas.
  • The tumor markers, including DUPAN 2, SPAN-1, and carbohydrate antigen 19-9, were within the normal ranges.
  • Based on these findings, we suspected a branch duct type intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm.
  • Pathologically, the cyst wall was lined with squamous epithelium surrounded by abundant lymphoid tissue with follicles, consistent with a lymphoepithelial cyst of the pancreas, which is an unusual benign cyst.

  • [Title] Solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas: a case series of 26 consecutive patients.
  • OBJECTIVE: Solid pseudopapillary tumor (SPT) of the pancreas, which predominantly affects young women, is a relatively indolent entity with favorable prognosis.
  • Clinicopathologic factors were compared between benign and malignant cases to determine what features of the tumor could suggest malignant potential.
  • The neoplasm was localized in the pancreatic head/neck in 14 patients and in the body/tail in 12 patients.
  • CONCLUSIONS: SPT is a rare neoplasm with low malignant potential.

  • [Title] Duodenum-preserving subtotal and total pancreatic head resections for inflammatory and cystic neoplastic lesions of the pancreas.
  • INTRODUCTION: For treatment of inflammatory and benign neoplastic lesions of the pancreatic head, a subtotal or total pancreatic head resection is a limited surgical procedure with the impact of replacing the application of a Whipple procedure.
  • The objective of this work is to describe the technical modifications of subtotal and total pancreatic head resection for inflammatory and neoplastic lesions of the pancreas.
  • The advantages of this limited surgical procedure are the preservation of the stomach, the duodenum and the extrahepatic biliary ducts for treatment of benign lesions of the pancreatic head, papilla, and intrapancreatic segment of the common bile duct.
  • For chronic pancreatitis with an inflammatory mass complicated by compression of the common bile duct or causing multiple pancreatic main duct stenoses and dilatations, a subtotal pancreatic head resection results in a long-lasting pain control.
  • The rationale for the application of duodenum-preserving total pancreatic head resection for cystic neoplastic lesions are complete exstirpation of the tumor and, as a consequence, interruption of carcinogenesis of the neoplasia preventing development of pancreatic cancer.
  • Duodenum-preserving total head resection necessitates additional biliary and duodenal anastomoses.
  • For mono-centric IPMN, MCN, and SCA tumors, located in the pancreatic head, total duodenum-preserving pancreatic head resection can be performed without hospital mortality and resurgery for recurrency.
  • Based on controlled clinical trials, duodenum-preserving pancreatic head resection is superior to the Whipple-type resection with regard to lower postoperative morbidity, almost no delay of gastric emptying, preservation of the endocrine function, lower frequency of rehospitalization, early professional rehabilitation, and establishment of a predisease level of quality of life.
  • CONCLUSION: The limited surgical procedures of subtotal or total pancreatic head resection are simple, safe, ensures free tumour margins and replace in the authors institution the application of a Whipple-type head resection.

27. Tien YW, Yeh CC, Wang SP, Hu RH, Lee PH: Is blind pancreaticoduodenectomy justified for patients with ampullary neoplasms? J Gastrointest Surg; 2009 Sep;13(9):1666-73
PDF icon [Fulltext service] Get downloadable fulltext PDFs of articles closely matching to this article, as many as you want.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Many specialists justify pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) for pancreatic head neoplasms with suspected but unproven malignance (blind-PD).
  • 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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: The preoperative diagnosis of pancreatic serous cystadenoma (SCA) is important because as a typically benign tumor it can be treated expectantly, whereas many other cystic tumors require excision.
  • This study examines the cytology, clinical and radiologic features, diagnostic accuracy of fine-needle aspiration (FNA), and potential pitfalls associated with this rare tumor.
  • Radiologically, a well-demarcated, multiloculated cystic mass involving the pancreatic head or uncinate process was common.
  • Tumor cells formed loose clusters or monolayered sheets composed of cuboidal cells with indistinct cell borders and granular or clear cytoplasm that was often stripped from the nucleus.
  • Seven (25%) of the aspirates were initially classified as "consistent with SCA," 6 (21%) as "no malignant cells," 3 (11%) as "nondiagnostic specimen," 3 (11%) as "suspicious for malignancy," 3 (11%) as "rare atypical cells," and 6 (21%) as "probably or consistent with mucinous cystic neoplasm."
  • Contaminating GI epithelium and mucin should be distinguished from components of a mucinous neoplasm.

  • [Title] Total parenchymal pancreatectomy preserving the duodenum, choledochus and spleen for widespread intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm: report of a case.
  • For patients with benign or low malignant diseases of the pancreas, several organ-preserving surgical techniques of pancreatectomy have been presented for localized lesions.
  • In cases of widespread or multifocal neoplasms of the pancreas, however, it is difficult to treat with this limited pancreatectomy because of a possible risk of residual dysplastic foci.
  • We herein report a patient with widespread intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm treated successfully with total parenchymal pancreatectomy.
  • A 73-year-old man was diagnosed as main duct intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm.
  • A papillary tumor was located in the body of the pancreas, and intraepithelial spreading reached almost the end of the pancreas tail and nearly over the midpoint of the pancreas head.
  • We performed total parenchymal pancreatectomy, an initial surgical procedure in which almost all parenchyma of the pancreas was resected but the duodenum, the common bile duct and the spleen were preserved and no reconstruction was needed.

  • The radiologic features were of a hypervascular mass in the uncinate process of the head of the pancreas, and a preoperative diagnosis of a neuroendocrine tumor was favored.
  • No evidence of atypia was noted, and the overall impression was of a benign solitary fibrous tumor of the pancreas.
  • This is an unusual primary spindle cell neoplasm of the pancreas and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of all spindle cell lesions that occur in the pancreas.

  • INTRODUCTION: The cystic tumor of the pancreas is a relatively uncommon entity.
  • The serous cystadenomas (SCA) are mostly benign lesions with an average size of 4 cm; nevertheless, in some rare cases these are giant lesions, generally larger than 15 cm.
  • MATERIAL AND METHOD: During the period from June 2004 to June 2005, the 3A II unit of the Edgardo Rebagliati Martins Hospital operated on two cases of giant serous cystadenomas of the pancreas, one located in the tail of the pancreas and the other in the head of the pancreas, with an average size of 16 cm.
  • DISCUSSION: The giant SCAs of the pancreas are rarely seen lesions that, according to different authors, are usually larger than 10 to 15 cm. in diameter.

  • [Title] Imaging features of solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas on multi-detector row computed tomography.
  • AIM: To retrospectively analyze the imaging features of solid-pseudopapillary tumors (SPTs) of the pancreas on multi-detector row computed tomography (MDCT) and define the imaging findings suggestive of malignant potential.
  • METHODS: A total of 24 consecutive cases with surgically and pathologically confirmed SPTs of the pancreas underwent preoperative abdominal MDCT studies in our hospital.
  • RESULTS: Of the 24 cases of SPTs, 11 cases (45.8%) occurred in the pancreatic head and seven (29.1%) in the tail.
  • Eighteen were pathologically diagnosed as benign and six as malignant.
  • When the size of the tumor was greater than 6 cm (including 6 cm), the possibilities of vascular (8 vs 1) and capsular invasion (9 vs 0) increased significantly (P < 0.05).
  • Two pathologically benign cases with vascular invasion and disrupted capsule on MDCT presented with local recurrence and hepatic metastases during follow-up about 1 year after the resection of the primary tumors.
  • CONCLUSION: Vascular and capsular invasion with superimposed spread into the adjacent pancreatic parenchyma and nearby structures in SPTs of the pancreas can be accurately revealed by MDCT preoperatively.
  • These imaging findings are predictive of the malignant potential associated with the aggressive behavior of the tumor, even in the pathologically benign cases.

  • INTRODUCTION: The cystic tumors of the pancreas represent an uncommon entity and the less frequent type among them is the solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas.
  • Its main difference lies in the fact that this type of tumor is more frequent in young patients.
  • Solid pseudopapillary tumors are generally tumors of large size and the majority of them have a benign behavior.
  • MATERIAL AND METHOD: During a period of three years, seven patients with this neoplasia underwent surgery.
  • The average tumor size was 8 cm and the head of the pancreas was the most frequent location (57%).
  • Of the resections performed in these patients, three were middle pancreatectomies, two were distal pancreatectomies one was a duodenopancreatectomy and one was duodenum preserving head resection of the pancreas.
  • DISCUSSION: The solid pseudopapillary tumors are uncommon tumors which are generally benign or premalignant neoplasias.

  • [Title] Endoscopic diagnosis of intraductal papillary-mucinous neoplasm of the pancreas by means of peroral pancreatoscopy using a small-diameter videoscope and narrow-band imaging.
  • BACKGROUND: Intraductal papillary-mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) is an intraductal tumor in which the mucin-producing epithelium shows proliferated papillary and a wide variety of pathological changes ranging from hyperplasia to adenocarcinoma.
  • Therefore, it is important to determine whether an IPMN is benign or malignant.
  • We carried out the differential diagnosis of benign lesion to malignant lesion.
  • RESULTS: Fifteen focal lesions of the 16 cases in the head of the pancreas (93.7%) and four focal lesions of the five cases in the pancreatic body (80%) were observable, whereas two lesions (adenocarcinoma in the pancreatic body, and adenoma in the uncus of pancreas) were not observable.
  • CONCLUSIONS: When combined with a videoscope and NBI, pancreatoscopy provided a clear image and was useful for evaluating whether the IPMN was benign or malignant.

  • [Title] An overview on the expression of cyclooxygenase-2 in tumors of the head and neck.
  • Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) levels are increased in various tumors, particularly those involving the esophagus, stomach, breast, pancreas, lung, colon, skin, urinary bladder, prostate and head and neck.
  • Thus, the literature shows increasing evidence that overexpression of the COX-2 plays an important role in tumor growth and spread of tumors by interfering with different biological processes such as cell proliferation, cellular adhesion, immune surveillance, apoptosis, and angiogenesis.
  • Furthermore, the expression of COX-2 might shed some light over the physiopathology and clinical behavior of tumors of the head and neck, including benign odontogenic neoplasms of the jaws with an aggressive behavior, such as keratocystic odontogenic tumors (KCOT).

  • [Title] Serous cystadenoma of the pancreas has abnormal imaging characteristics: report of a case.
  • Thanks to the development of image diagnosis and the spread of screening by ultrasonography, an increasing number of cystic lesions of the pancreas are being recognized.
  • Serous cystadenoma of the pancreas is relatively rare among the cystic tumors of the pancreas in Japan.
  • The tumor was located in the head of the pancreas, and it was indicated hypovascularity by enhanced computed tomography.
  • Although serous cystadenoma was believed to be in benign tumors, it has recently been revealed that serous cystadenoma has malignant potential.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Some have suggested that a malignant tumor is a contraindication to laparoscopic resection.
  • Aim The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility, safety, and long-term outcome of the laparoscopic approach in patients with functioning, nonfunctioning, or overt malignant pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (PNT).
  • Other than 9 PNTs localized in the head of the pancreas, all tumors were located in the left pancreas.
  • There were 33 patients with functioning tumors: 4 with gastrinomas (mean size 1.2 cm), 1 with a glucagonoma (4 cm), 3 with vipomas (3.2 cm), 2 with carcinoids (5.2 cm), 20 with sporadic insulinomas (1.4 cm), 2 with insulinoma/multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN-1) (4.4 cm), and 1 with a malignant insulinoma (13 cm).
  • Sixteen patients had a nonfunctioning tumor (mean size 5 cm).
  • Long-term outcomes were analyzed by tumor recurrence and patient survival.
  • Conclusions This series demonstrates that LPS is feasible and safe in benign-appearing and malignant neuroendocrine pancreatic tumors (NEPTs).
  • The benefits of minimally invasive surgery were manifest in the short hospital stay and acceptable pancreas-related complications in high-risk patients.

  • The surgical goals are to: 1. prolong survival by resecting the primary tumor and any nodal or hepatic metastases, 2. control the symptoms related to hormonal secretion, 3. prevent or treat local complications.
  • The most common sites of gastrointestinal ET's ( carcinoids) are the appendix and the rectum; these are often small (<1 cm), benign, and discovered fortuitously at the time of appendectomy or colonoscopic removal.
  • Insulinoma and gastrinoma (cause of the Zollinger-Ellison syndrome) are the most common functional ET's. 80% are sporadic; in these cases, tumor size, location, and malignant potential determine the type of resection which may vary from a simple enucleation to a formal pancreatectomy.
  • In 10-20% of cases, pancreaticoduodenal ET presents in the setting of multiple endocrine neoplasia (NEM type I), an autosomal-dominant genetic disease with multifocal endocrine involvement of the pituitary, parathyroid, pancreas, and adrenal glands.
  • For insulinoma with NEM-I, enucleation of lesions in the pancreatic head plus a caudal pancreatectomy is the most appropriate procedure.

  • [Title] Laparoscopic enucleation of a nonfunctioning neuroendocrine tumor at the head of the pancreas.
  • OBJECTIVE: Laparoscopy is a safe, feasible technique for benign pancreatic pathologies and has been increasingly reported for neuroendocrine tumors located at the body and tail of the pancreas.
  • We report a case of successful enucleation of a nonfunctioning neuroendocrine tumor located at the head of the pancreas, in a patient with multiple endocrine neoplasia type I.
  • METHODS: A 5-cm nonfunctioning neuroendocrine tumor at the pancreatic head was identified by computerized tomography scan.
  • Laparoscopic ultrasound did not reveal additional tumors on any other part of the pancreas.
  • RESULTS: Enucleation was successfully performed for this solitary tumor because of its favorable position.
  • Histology revealed an islet cell tumor.
  • CONCLUSION: Laparoscopic enucleation of neuroendocrine tumor at the pancreatic head is safe and feasible for select patients.

  • [Title] Prediction of anastomotic leakage after pancreatic head resections by dynamic magnetic resonance imaging (dMRI).
  • Signal intensity (SI) measurements (aorta, body of the pancreas, muscle tissue) were performed in the axial T1-weighted sequences before and after 25 and 60 s after i.v. application of gadolinium-diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid.
  • SI(ratio)s were classified in two groups: rapid increase (SI(ratio) >or= 1.1, early arterial value > portal-venous value, "soft" pancreas) and delayed increase (SI(ratio) <1.1, "firm" or "hard" pancreas).
  • All patients received pancreatic head resection with a duct-to-mucosa pancreaticojejunostomy.
  • RESULTS: Leakage of the pancreaticojejunostomy occurred more frequently (12/37 vs. two of 35, 32% vs. 6%, p = 0.006) in patients with a rapid increase and an SI(ratio) >or= 1.1 ("soft" pancreas, n = 37) compared to those with delayed perfusion (SI(ratio) <1.1, "hard" pancreas, n = 35).
  • Patients with a rapid increase had significantly better preoperative American Society of Anesthesiologists staging, lower carbohydrate antigen 19-9 values, and smaller tumor sizes.
  • Most of them had not only benign tumors but also longer postoperative hospital stay, in comparison to patients with delayed perfusion (SI(ratio) <1.1).

  • The patient is laid on the right side at an angle of 30-45 degrees in order to obtain an artefact-free image of the close anatomical relationship around the pancreas head.
  • In addition, curved MPRs or in rare cases 3D reconstructions could be very helpful in identifying the critical anatomic tumor site in the neighbourhood of the visceral vessel system.
  • After the correct diagnosis of an adenocarcinoma has been made only 20% of all patients are shown to have a surgically resectable disease, but the overall survival rate is significantly higher after resection in combination with a multimodal tumor therapy strategy.
  • The reason is that the correct diagnosis of the resectability of the tumor is one of the main criteria for overall survival of these patients.
  • Particularly, the differentiation of the latter into benign, borderline or malignant transformation is not always possible, but indirect signs, such as small nodules adjacent to the ductal wall, the diameter of the pancreatic duct, or a direct communication between cystic lesions and duct can be detected because of the high spatial resolution and is comparable to the findings in MRI.
  • Moreover MD-CT is an ideal procedure for the differentiation of local tumor stages in patients under neoadjuvant or adjuvant chemotherapy.

  • [Title] Surgical design and outcome of duodenum-preserving pancreatic head resection for benign or low-grade malignant tumors.
  • To apply duodenum-preserving pancreatic head resection (DPPHR) as radical procedure for benign or low-grade malignant tumors, it needs the reconciliation of complete pancreatic head resection and preservation of the bile duct and peripancreatic vessels.
  • The long-term outcomes of the DPPHR have been reported as extremely rare in comparison with pylorus preserving pancreatoduodenectomy (PPPD) in these pancreatic head tumors.
  • Therefore, we modified the DPPHR to include a complete resection of the pancreatic head and the preservation of both anterior and posterior arterial arcades.
  • We performed 21 DPPHRs and 19 PPPDs in the patients with benign or low-grade malignant pancreatic head tumor.
  • The DPPHR should be favored over the PPPD in benign or low-grade malignant tumors of the head of the pancreas if there is no compromise with oncologic radicality.

  • [Title] [Serous microcystic adenoma of the head of the pancreas causing an obstructive jaundice].
  • BACKGROUND: Serous microcystic adenoma is a rare benign tumor of the exocrine pancreas originating from the ductal system and composed of a large number of small cysts covered by cuboid cells, filled with clear serous fluid and separated with fibrocolagenous stroma.
  • Most frequently it appears in women in 7th and 8th decades, in the distal pancreas.
  • In 2/3 of patients symptoms are uncharacteristic and in 1/3 they are absent When localised within the head of the pancreas it rarely causes an obstructive jaundice.
  • At surgery we revealed a rather large policystic mass of the head of the pancreas causing not only obstructive jaundice but also a venous stasis by compression and dislocation of the portomesenteric vein.
  • The tumor was removed with pylorus preserving cephalic duodenopancreatectomy (Whipple's procedure modified by Longmire-Traverso).
  • Histology confirmed serous microcystic adenoma of the pancreas.
  • CONCLUSION: Although very rare, serous microcystic adenoma might appear within the head of the pancreas and has to be taken into consideration in differential diagnosis of cystic lesions of the head of the pancreas.
  • Very rarely the tumour might cause obstructive jaundice.

  • [Title] Pancreatic head resection with segmental duodenectomy: safety and long-term results.
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the usefulness and long-term results with pancreatic head resection with segmental duodenectomy (PHRSD; Nakao's technique) in patients with branch-duct type intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs).
  • Recently, organ-preserving pancreatic resections for benign and noninvasive IPMN located in the head of the pancreas have been described.
  • We have PHRSD in which the pancreatic head can be completely resected and the major portion of the duodenum can be preserved by this procedure.
  • The 5-year survival rate was 100% in patients with benign IPMN and 42% in patients with invasive IPMN.
  • Long-term outcome was satisfactory without tumor recurrence in noninvasive carcinoma.
  • PHRSD should therefore be considered as an adequate operation as an organ-preserving pancreatic resection for branch-duct type of IPMN located at the head of the pancreas.

  • [Title] Serous oligocystic adenoma (SOIA) of the pancreas--first reported case of a genetically fixed association in a patient with hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC).
  • Cystic tumor lesions of the pancreas are relatively uncommon.
  • Advances in imaging and pathohistology, including immunohistochemistry, have led to the detection and classification of novel tumor entities.
  • One of these classified cystic neoplasms of the pancreas is serous oligocystic adenoma (SOIA), a rare and benign tumor lesion.
  • We report on a 41-year-old man with a cystic lesion within the pancreatic head.
  • Both tumor tissue specimens had been characterized for a high level of microsatellite instability (MSI) and loss of hMLH1, as well as for a corresponding germ line mutation in hMLH1 gene, leading to the diagnosis of hereditary non-polyposis associated colon cancer (HNPCC).
  • The case is remarkable since the SOIA revealed MSI and loss of hMLH1 protein in the tumor cells that has never been reported for this tumor type.

  • Usually, insulinomas are small sized, insulin secreting, benign tumors of the pancreas, and require surgical treatment.
  • We report the case of a female patient, of 61 years old, with pancreatic insulinoma localized in the junction between the head and the istm of the pancreas, of 1,4 cm in size, which induced hypoglycemia due to endogenous insulin hypersecretion.
  • The tumor was removed by laparoscopic enucleation in March 2009.

  • [Title] [Cystic neoplasms of the pancreas].
  • INTRODUCTION: Neoplastic changes represent an important part of cystic deposits in pancreas.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: Together 13 patients with histologically proved cystic neoplasm of pancreas underwent surgery during the period of ten years from 1997 to 2007.
  • They represent 6% of all patients operated for pancreatic tumor (213 patients).
  • Women (9 patients) represented more than two thirds of all operated patients and deposits were more often localized in the head of pancreas (8).
  • Left sided resection, done in 5 cases, identified benign tumor in all patients; no recurrence was found in 2 years follow-up.
  • CONCLUSION: Cystic neoplasms localized in the pancreatic head are more frequent in men than in women and predominantly malignant, on the contrary localization in the tail of pancreas is particularly in younger women linked with benign tumor.

  • [Title] Solid serous microcystic adenoma of the pancreas.
  • BACKGROUND: Cystic neoplasms of the pancreas are less common than solid tumors, and portend a better prognosis.
  • They can be divided into serous and mucinous subtypes, with the former behaving less aggressively and generally considered benign.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: We present a case of a 62 year-old man with a history of abdominal pain, who on CT scan was found to have a solid mass at the junction of the head and body of the pancreas.
  • It appears to behave in a benign manner, and as such, surgical resection is curative for patients with this tumor.
  • Furthermore, until more cases of solid SMA are identified to further elucidate its natural history and improve the reliability of preoperative diagnosis, surgical resection of this solid pancreatic tumor should be considered standard therapy in order to exclude malignancy.

  • INTRODUCTION: The most common causes of extrahepatic obstruction are choledocholithiasis, malignant and benign stenosis of biliary ducts, pancreatic head carcinoma, and chronic cephalic pancreatitis.
  • Intraoperative lesion occurring on biliary duct procedures is generally involved in the etiology of benign stenoses of extrahepatic biliary ducts.
  • Icterus was caused by choledocholithiasis in 112, carcinoma of extrahepatic biliary ducts in seven, carcinoma of the gallbladder in five, and carcinoma of the head of pancreas in 18 patients.
  • Biliodigestive anastomosis was created in another 20 patients with the findings of inoperable tumor of the head of pancreas, inoperable tumor of the papilla of Vater, postoperative choledochus stenosis, stenosis of choledochoduodenal anastomosis, and chronic cephalic pancreatitis.
  • Operative treatment can be fully successful in cases caused by lithiasis or benign stenosis, whereas in cases due to malignant disease a variety of radical and operative procedures associated with a variable level of success are available.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • A patient with suspicion of a neuroendocrine tumor of the pancreas underwent a somatostatin receptor scintigraphy using 111In-Pentetreotide.
  • 111In-pentetreotide scintigraphy showed discrete uptake of the radiotracer in the head of the pancreas and focal uptake in the right upper thyroid lobe.
  • Normal thyroid tissue and thyroid disorders, such as cancers, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and adenomas often show increased uptake of 111In-pentetreotide resulting in a possible false positive interpretation in patients with neuroendocrine tumor.
  • Adding a 48h planar image might contribute to the differential diagnosis between benign or malignant lesions, as in the present case where the uptake decreased in an adenoma after 48 hours.

  • [Title] Cystic neoplasia of the pancreas: pathology and biology.
  • In contrast with solid tumors, most of which are invasive ductal adenocarcinoma with dismal prognosis, cystic lesions of the pancreas are often either benign or low-grade indolent neoplasia.
  • While many are innocuous adenomas--in particular, those that are small and less complex, and in the case of IPMN, those that are branch-duct type are more commonly benign, some harbor or progress into in situ or invasive carcinomas.
  • The presence of ovarian-type stroma has now almost become a requirement for the diagnosis of MCN, and when defined as such, MCN is seen almost exclusively in women of perimenopausal age group as thick-walled multilocular cystic mass in the tail of the pancreas in contrast with IPMN which afflicts an elder population, both genders in almost equal numbers, and occur predominantly in the head of the organ.
  • In contrast, the rare cystic tumors that occur as a result of degenerative/necrotic changes in otherwise solid neoplasia such as the rare cystic ductal adenocarcinomas, cystic endocrine neoplasia, and most importantly, solid-pseudopapillary tumor (SPT) in which cystic change is so common that it used to be incorporated into its name ("solid-cystic," "papillary-cystic") are malignant neoplasia, albeit variable degrees of aggressiveness.
  • SPT holds a distinctive place among pancreatic neoplasia because of its highly peculiar characteristics, undetermined cell lineage, occurrence almost exclusively in young females, association with beta-catenin pathway, and also by being a very low-grade curable malignancy.
  • In conclusion, cystic lesions in the pancreas constitute a biologically and pathologically diverse category most (but not all) of which are either benign or treatable diseases; however, a substantial subset, especially mucinous ones, has malignant potential that requires careful analysis.

  • INTRODUCTION: The standard operation for carcinoma of the pancreatic head is a partial pancreaticoduodenectomy.
  • Preoperative evaluation showed a 3 cm cystic lesion in the head of the pancreas.
  • Pathology revealed a benign multicystic mesothelioma.
  • Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatographic examination and a computed tomography scan showed a stenosis of the distal bile duct secondary to a mass in the head of the pancreas and duodenum.
  • A computed tomography scan revealed a 3.5 cm lesion in the head of the pancreas with cystic and solid components.
  • Benign multicystic mesothelioma is a very rare tumor that originates from the peritoneum.
  • Although it demonstrates a benign clinical behaviour, it frequently recurs after resection.
  • Adenomyoma of the bile duct or ampullary region is a very unusual, benign, localized lesion characterized by adenomyomatous hyperplasia.
  • Undifferentiated carcinoma, sarcomatoid variant, is an aggressive tumor and is characterized by spindle cells.

  • [Title] EUS and/or EUS-guided FNA in patients with CT and/or magnetic resonance imaging findings of enlarged pancreatic head or dilated pancreatic duct with or without a dilated common bile duct.
  • BACKGROUND: Incidental findings of an enlarged head of pancreas (HOP) or dilated pancreatic duct (PD) with or without a dilated common bile duct (CBD) on CT or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), in patients without obstructive jaundice, raise suspicion for a pancreatic neoplasm, but their clinical significance has not been established.
  • OBJECTIVE: To determine the prevalence of pancreatic neoplasm in this patient group.
  • (1) The prevalence of pancreatic neoplasms and (2) performance characteristics of EUS-FNA for identifying malignant neoplasm, in this patient group.
  • RESULTS: In 110 study patients, the final diagnosis included adenocarcinoma (n = 7), pancreatic intraepithelial neoplasia (n = 1), neuroendocrine tumor (n = 1), tumor metastasis (n = 1), and benign cyst (n = 3).
  • Thirty-two patients had EUS evidence of chronic pancreatitis, and, in the remaining 65 patients, the pancreas was normal.
  • The accuracy of EUS and EUS-FNA for diagnosing pancreatic neoplasm in these patients was 99.1%, with 88.8% sensitivity, 100% specificity, 99% negative predicative value, and 100% positive predictive value.
  • CONCLUSION: A pancreatic neoplasm is seen in a clinically significant number of patients with "enlarged HOP" or "dilated PD with or without a dilated CBD" but without obstructive jaundice.
  • EUS-FNA seems highly accurate for diagnosing pancreatic neoplasm in these patients.

  • Insulinoma tumors are often difficult to detect, as the symptoms largely precede occurrence of a visualized tumor.
  • All attempts to localize a tumor with repeated abdominal ultrasound examinations or computed tomography scanning were unsuccessful.
  • Once it had become technically available, endoscopic ultrasonography of the pancreas was performed.
  • It revealed a 10 mm tumor in the pancreatic head.
  • The tumor was subsequently removed surgically.
  • Microscopic examination revealed benign insulinoma, with partially trabecular structure.

  • [Title] Solid serous adenoma of the pancreas: a rare variant within the family of pancreatic serous cystic neoplasms.
  • We report the third case of a solid serous adenoma of the pancreas, a rare variant of tumor within the family of pancreatic serous cystic neoplasms.
  • This asymptomatic tumor presented in a 66-year-old man during imaging for another problem.
  • Computed tomography of the abdomen demonstrated a 3.5-cm hypervascular mass in the head of the pancreas.
  • Histological examination demonstrated a neoplasm identical to a serous cystadenoma-glycogen-rich cuboidal or polygonal cells with finely granulated eosinophilic or clear cytoplasm.
  • More often, the neoplasm contained solid areas and tubules but no microcysts.
  • The microscopic findings of a solid neoplasm of cuboidal cells rich in glycogen and the immunostaining listed associate this tumor with the previously 2 reported cases of solid serous adenoma.
  • All 3 reported cases thus far have proven to be benign lesions by pathological examination.
  • Because clinical follow-up is reported only in the present case, caution should be exercised in declaring the solid serous adenoma of the pancreas as a benign lesion.

  • [Title] [Management of nonfunctioning islet cell tumors of the pancreas].
  • OBJECTIVE: To analyze the clinical and pathological features in order to investigate appropriate way of diagnosis and treatment for non-functional islet cell tumors of the pancreas (NFICT).
  • Twenty-eight patients were diagnosed as having non-functional islet cell carcinomas of the pancreas (NFICC) and 15 patients benign islet cell tumors.
  • Preoperatively, all of those were found to have a mass in their pancrease by ultrasonic and computed tomography examination, with 21 in the head, 10 in the body and 6 in the tail of the pancreas.
  • Multicemtric tumor were found in one patient.
  • The resectability and curative resection rate in 28 patients with nonfunctioning islet cell carcinomas of the pancreas was 78.6% and 60.7%, respectively.
  • None of the 15 patients with benign nonfunctioning islet cell tumor of the pancreas died of this disease.
  • While the overall cumulative 5- and 10-year survival rate in 28 patients with non-functional islet cell carcinomas of the pancreas was only 58.1% and 29.0%, respectively.
  • CONCLUSION: Nonfunctioning islet cell tumor of the pancreas is frequently found in young female.

  • [Title] Pancreatic benign schwannoma treated by simple enucleation: case report and review of literature.
  • Benign schwannoma in the pancreatic head is very rare, with only 11 patients being reported in the English literature from a Medline search.
  • Herein, we present another enucleation case: a 71-year-old male patient with a 1.5 x 1.2-cm low-density mass, mimicking a cystic lesion located at the head of pancreas, which was detected by computed tomography.
  • This tumor failed to be discovered by abdominal ultrasound.
  • At laparotomy, a solid mass 1 cm in diameter was identified; it was the smallest one in the pancreatic head according to the 11 previous reported cases.
  • The data of the 12 patients indicated that simple minimal invasive enucleation for small benign schwannoma in the pancreatic head was feasible and safe; early detection and early treatment of the tumor were helpful in increasing the ratio of enucleation and avoiding a very invasive Whipple operation.

  • [Title] Parenchyma-sparing pancreatectomies for benign or border-line tumors of the pancreas.
  • Whilst these procedures are mandatory for malignant tumors, they seem to be too extensive for benign or border-line tumors, especially in patients with a long life expectancy.
  • In recent years, there has been a growing interest in parenchyma-sparing pancreatic surgery with the aim of achieving better functional results without compromising oncological radicality in patients with benign, border-line or low-grade malignant tumors.
  • Several limited resections have been introduced for isolated or multiple pancreatic lesions, depending on the location of the tumor: central pancreatectomy, duodenum-preserving pancreatic head resection with or without segmental duodenectomy, inferior head resection, dorsal pancreatectomy, excavation of the pancreatic head, middle-preserving pancreatectomy, and other multiple segmental resections.
  • Pancreatic endocrine and exocrine function is better preserved with good quality of life in most of the patients, and tumor recurrence is uncommon.

  • He was then transferred to our institute with a diagnosis of a tumor of the head of the pancreas with duodenal invasion in January 2006.
  • Computed tomography also demonstrated a heterogenous mass at the pancreatic head and suspected invasion to the duodenal wall.
  • Ultrasonography showed a huge mass at the pancreatic head with a mixture of high and low echoic areas.
  • The pancreatic tumor was soft and had invaded to the duodenum.
  • The pathological diagnosis was a hemolymphangioma of the pancreas invaded to the duodenum.
  • Hemolymphangioma of the pancreas is a very rare benign tumor.
  • Major symptoms are abdominal pain and distension due to the enlarged tumor.
  • However, we experienced a case of hemolymphangioma of the pancreas with gastrointestinal bleeding due to invasion to the duodenum.

  • [Title] Hemosuccus pancreaticus due to intraductal papillary-mucinous carcinoma of the pancreas.
  • A 72-year-old female was referred to our hospital for evaluation of a hyperechoic mass in the pancreatic head with ultrasound sonography.
  • Endoscopic retrograde pancreatography revealed an irregular defect in the main pancreatic duct at the head of the pancreas.
  • Computed tomography revealed a 2-cm mass with a low density lesion in the pancreas head.
  • On suspicion of malignant tumor of the pancreas, pylorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy was performed.
  • It grew within the inferior branch of the main pancreatic duct, and the top of the tumor stood out into the main pancreatic duct.
  • As the causes of hemosuccus pancreaticus, pancreatic benign diseases, for example, chronic pancreatitis, pseudocyst, arterial aneurysm and pseudoaneurysm, are known, but pancreatic tumors are rare.
  • In particular, this may be the first report of hemosuccus pancreaticus induced by intraductal papillary-mucinous carcinoma of the pancreas without mucin hypersecretion.
