To examine the outcomes from minimal access retroperitoneal pancreatic necrosectomy (MARPN) and open pancreatic necrosectomy (OPN) for severe necrotizing pancreatitis in a single center.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Annals of surgery
The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of surgical transgastric necrosectomy (TGN) for walled-off pancreatic necrosis (WON) in selected patients.
Pancreatic walled-off necrosis (WON) may require adjunctive direct endoscopic necrosectomy (DEN) following transmural stent placement. DEN is performed immediately or delayed in relation to index endo...
The recent publication of two papers and an editorial in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) has caused consternation in the gynaecological oncology community (4, 5). Both papers demonstrate a ...
Endoscopic drainage (ED) with or without necrosectomy, and minimally invasive surgical necrosectomy (MISN) have been increasingly utilized for treatment of symptomatic sterile and infected pancreatic ...
Distal pancreatectomy with en-bloc celiac axis resection (DP-CAR) through retroperitoneal-first laparoscopic approach (Retlap): A novel strategy for achieving accurate evaluation of resectability and minimal invasiveness.
Distal pancreatectomy with en-bloc celiac axis resection (DP-CAR) for borderline resectable pancreatic body cancer is increasingly being performed [1,2]. For survival benefits, obtaining margin-free r...
A prospective, single arm, open label, multi-center, trial to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Interscope EndoRotor® Resection System in subjects requiring direct endoscopic n...
Acute necrotizing pancreatitis is a frequent and potentially lethal disease, especially in case of infected pancreatic necrosis (IPN). IPN usually occurs after the first week of evolution....
This study is designed to answer whether minimal invasive vessel clotting (angioembolization) or open surgery (retroperitoneal packing) is more effective for pelvic fractures with massive ...
Pancreatic fluid collections (PFC) can occur as a complication of acute and chronic pancreatitis. PFC include pancreatic pseudocysts (PP) and walled-off necrosis (WON). The majorities of ...
The purpose of this study is to determine optimal treatment strategies for symptomatic walled-off pancreatic necrosis( WON).

New abnormal growth of tissue in the RETROPERITONEAL SPACE.
A slowly progressive condition of unknown etiology, characterized by deposition of fibrous tissue in the retroperitoneal space compressing the ureters, great vessels, bile duct, and other structures. When associated with abdominal aortic aneurysm, it may be called chronic periaortitis or inflammatory perianeurysmal fibrosis.
A 36-amino acid pancreatic hormone that is secreted mainly by endocrine cells found at the periphery of the ISLETS OF LANGERHANS and adjacent to cells containing SOMATOSTATIN and GLUCAGON. Pancreatic polypeptide (PP), when administered peripherally, can suppress gastric secretion, gastric emptying, pancreatic enzyme secretion, and appetite. A lack of pancreatic polypeptide (PP) has been associated with OBESITY in rats and mice.
Extracts prepared from pancreatic tissue that may contain the pancreatic enzymes or other specific uncharacterized factors or proteins with specific activities. PANCREATIN is a specific extract containing digestive enzymes and used to treat pancreatic insufficiency.
The pancreas secretes a number of important hormones into the digestive tract and the blood stream. Cancers are most commonly exocrine than endocrine (neuroendocrine) tumors. Functional tumors secrete hormones; Insulinoma, Gastrinoma, Somatostatinoma, VI...
Pancreatitis Acute pancreatitis is inflammation of the pancreas caused by the release of activated pancreatic enzymes. Common triggers are biliary tract disease and chronic heavy alcohol intake. Diagnosis is based on clinical presentation...
