Acute pancreatitis is an inflammatory process of the pancreas, which can range from a localized inflammatory process to a systemic response, resulting in sepsis and multisystem failure. Pancreatic flu...
BACKGROUND Ultrasonography-guided percutaneous drainage for pancreatic fluid collections is associated with a high recurrence rate and endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS)-guided drainage is a valuable ap...
Prospective multicenter international study on the outcomes of a newly developed self-approximating lumen apposing metallic stent for drainage of pancreatic fluid collections and endoscopic necrosectomy.
A novel self-approximating lumen apposing metallic stent (LAMS) (Niti-S Spaxus, Taewoong Medical, Korea) has recently become available. The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcomes for drainage ...
Pancreatic pseudocyst (PP) and walled-off necrosis can be managed endoscopically, percutaneously or surgically, but with diverse efficacy.
Necrotizing pancreatitis remains a therapeutic challenge. Thirty-eight percent of all cases lead to an early organ failure and 15 % cause death. Interventions are necessary in 38 % 1.Due to lower ...
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. ...
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 study hypothesis is that placement of LAMS plus an overlapping double pigtail stent for endoscopic transmural drainage of PFCs with solid debris will result in improved drainage and re...
This study evaluates the utility of using cyst fluid glucose levels to diagnose mucinous pancreatic cysts during endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) procedures.
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.
Cyst-like space not lined by EPITHELIUM and contained within the PANCREAS. Pancreatic pseudocysts account for most of the cystic collections in the pancreas and are often associated with chronic PANCREATITIS.
Voluntarily-formed groups of healthcare professionals who join for common management services and other benefits such as collective bargaining agreements with reimbursement agents. The physical assets of a practice are controlled by the MSO which also provides billing, collections, and similar services. The practitioner retains control of patient records and management of patient care.
First aid or other immediate intervention for accidents or medical conditions requiring immediate care and treatment before definitive medical and surgical management can be procured.
