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 role of endoscopy in the care of patients with pancreatic cancer continues to evolve. The early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer has been difficult. Endoscopic ultrasound examination should be used ...
Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) has a limited ability to determine the nature of solid pancreatic lesions (SPLs). Most recent ultrasound processors are provided with elastography software, which allows qu...
Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) and intraductal pancreatic mucinous neoplasia (IPMN) with worrisome features are surgically managed. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided radiofrequency ablati...
Exocrine pancreatic function is affected in patients with locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC), clinically leading to steatorrhea. It is unknown whether maldigestion and malabsorption can also be...
The aim of our study is to evaluate S-MRCP, in comparison to direct pancreatic function, to measure pancreatic exocrine function in patients who have symptoms suspicious for insufficiency....
The pancreatic surgery causing some pancreatic collections. And in a number of case, this surgery can require a surgical resumption, a percutaneous drainage or an endoscopic drainage. ...
This is a retrospective chart review study examining 1) demographic data such as age, sex, etiology of pancreatitis 2) clinical data including radiological characteristics of walled off pa...
The study is a prospective, observational, case-control study evaluating the utility of endoscopic ultrasound for the identification of preneoplastic and neoplastic pancreatic lesions in p...
Patients with non-resectable pancreatic cancer have a poor prognosis.The analysis of prognostic factors before treatment may be helpful in selecting appropriate candidates for chemotherapy...
Fiberoptic endoscopy designed for duodenal observation and cannulation of VATER'S AMPULLA, in order to visualize the pancreatic and biliary duct system by retrograde injection of contrast media. Endoscopic (Vater) papillotomy (SPHINCTEROTOMY, ENDOSCOPIC) may be performed during this procedure.
Indolesulfonic acid used as a dye in renal function testing for the detection of nitrates and chlorates, and in the testing of milk.
An indolesulfonic acid that is used as a dye in renal function testing and as a reagent for the detection of nitrates and chlorates and in the testing of milk.
Tests based on the biochemistry and physiology of the exocrine pancreas and involving analysis of blood, duodenal contents, feces, or urine for products of pancreatic secretion.
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.
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...
