To determine the factors predicting the subsequent development of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma in remnant pancreas (PDAC-RP) after partial pancreatectomy for PDAC.
This article was published in the following journal.

Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) are regarded as precursors of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas (PDAs), but little is known about mechanism of progression. This makes it a challenge t...
One of the rare complications of low-grade pancreatic neoplasms is fistulization into nearby structures. This often does not present clinically, but is incidentally identified in patients who have bee...
The spectrum of low-grade intraductal papillary proliferations of the salivary glands is heterogenous, and reproducible morphologic diagnostic criteria have not yet been established. Recognized types ...
The present case report describes intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms of the biliary tract (IPMN-BT), a rare neoplasm of the biliary tract that is described as the biliary counterpart of intraduc...
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) following pancreatectomy is a potential cause of long term morbidity in patients undergoing pancreatic resection with curative intent. Prior studies have repor...
To demonstrate the added value of intraoperative pancreatoscopy in patients undergoing partial pancreatic resection for the treatment of Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasm (IPMN) as i...
The primary aim of this study is to determine if mutations of BRCA1 and BRCA2 result in different precancerous pathways to pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC), as suggested in our vali...
The purpose of the study is to prove the hypothesis that pancreas PET-CT can differentiate duct involved IPMN with malignancy from duct involved non-malignant IPMN.
1. To assess the effect of RG1068 at a dose of 0.2 mcg/kg intravenously (IV) on the diameter of the pancreatic duct when used during Magnetic Resonance Pancreatography 2. To demons...
Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMN) have a potential to develop into a malignant disease with varying severity. Decision making on when and how to make a therapeutic interventi...
A thyroid neoplasm of mixed papillary and follicular arrangement. Its biological behavior and prognosis is the same as that of a papillary adenocarcinoma of the thyroid. (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1271)
An adenocarcinoma producing mucin in significant amounts. (From Dorland, 27th ed)
An adenocarcinoma containing finger-like processes of vascular connective tissue covered by neoplastic epithelium, projecting into cysts or the cavity of glands or follicles. It occurs most frequently in the ovary and thyroid gland. (Stedman, 25th ed)
A cystic tumor of the ovary, containing thin, clear, yellow serous fluid and varying amounts of solid tissue, with a malignant potential several times greater than that of mucinous cystadenoma (CYSTADENOMA, MUCINOUS). It can be unilocular, parvilocular, or multilocular. It is often bilateral and papillary. The cysts may vary greatly in size. (Dorland, 27th ed; from Hughes, Obstetric-Gynecologic Terminology, 1972)
Carcinoma that arises from the PANCREATIC DUCTS. It accounts for the majority of cancers derived from the PANCREAS.
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...

Hepatology is the study of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas, and diseases associated with them. This includes viral hepatitis, alcohol damage, cirrhosis and cancer. As modern lifestyles change, with alcoholism and cancer becoming more promi...
