Neoadjuvant chemotherapy/neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (NAC/NACRT) can be performed in patients with pancreatic cancer to improve survival. We aimed to clarify the clinical outcomes of biliary drainag...
Anastomotic bile duct stricture (ABS) is one of the most common complications after liver transplantation. Current practice of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) with multiple plast...
An 80-year-old man who had a 10×50-mm self-expandable metallic stent (SEMS) (BONA-SHIMSTENT biliary-covered; Standard SciTech Inc, Seoul, South Korea) placed for biliary obstruction due to pancreatic...
The optimal approach at treating infected biliary stents at the time of cholangitis remains unknown. This study aims to compare the efficacy of stent exchange versus stent sweeping/stent-in-stent appr...
Does Transmural Plastic Stenting Prevent the Recurrence of Pancreatic Fluid Collection After Metal Stent Removal in Walled Off Necrosis With Disconnected Pancreatic Duct Syndrome ? -Prospective Randomized Controlled Trial
Walled of necrosis (WON) is severe local complication of acute necrotizing pancreatitis. Disconnected pancreatic duct syndrome(DPDS) is commonly seen (50-60%) after necrotizing pancreatiti...
The research design is a randomized prospective clinical trial comparing Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) guided drainage of WON using FCSEMS and plastic stents. The trial will be conducted at ...
A prospective randomized cohort study to compare whether the placement of a double-pigtail plastic stent (DPS) within a lumen-apposing metal stent (LAMS) may improve the efficacy and safet...
This study looks in to the rate of biliary stent dysfunction for plastic and metallic stents in patients who need biliary drainage due to a tumor in pancreas before possible pancreaticoduo...
The aim of this study is to demonstrate that the group with an additional plastic stent to anchor the fully covered self expandable metal stent (FCSEMS) in patients with malignant biliary ...
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.
A pancreatic trypsin inhibitor common to all mammals. It is secreted with the zymogens into the pancreatic juice. It is a protein composed of 56 amino acid residues and is different in amino acid composition and physiological activity from the Kunitz bovine pancreatic trypsin inhibitor (APROTININ).
A true cyst of the PANCREAS, distinguished from the much more common PANCREATIC PSEUDOCYST by possessing a lining of mucous EPITHELIUM. Pancreatic cysts are categorized as congenital, retention, neoplastic, parasitic, enterogenous, or dermoid. Congenital cysts occur more frequently as solitary cysts but may be multiple. Retention cysts are gross enlargements of PANCREATIC DUCTS secondary to ductal obstruction. (From Bockus Gastroenterology, 4th ed, p4145)
A primary malignant neoplasm of the pancreatic ISLET CELLS. Usually it involves the non-INSULIN-producing cell types, the PANCREATIC ALPHA CELLS and the pancreatic delta cells (SOMATOSTATIN-SECRETING CELLS) in GLUCAGONOMA and SOMATOSTATINOMA, respectively.
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...
Acute Coronary Syndromes ACS
Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS) is an umbrella term for situations where the blood supplied to the heart muscle is suddenly blocked. Treatment for acute coronary syndrome includes medicines and a procedure known as angioplasty, during which doctors inflat...
