This study aims to evaluate the safety and efficacy of new ablation catheter developed by MEDICAL TAEWOONG for the treatment of pancreatic premalignant and early malignant cystic lesion. T...
The aim of this study is to evaluate if the early change of needle during EUS-FNA for suspected pancreatic cancer allows an earlier preliminary cytological diagnosis of neoplasia.
This study evaluates whether a new endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) histology needle may improve the diagnostic yield during biopsies of pancreatic lesions
This is a clinical trial to compare two needles used in biopsy techniques to acquire tissue from pancreatic cancer. The hypothesis is that the tissue yield, as measured by tumor DNA and ce...
Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy (EUS-FNA) is a reliable, safe, and effective technique for obtaining samples from pancreatic masses. A new core biopsy needle has...
Our aim in this study was to compare the efficiency of 25G versus 22G needles in diagnosing solid pancreatic lesions by EUS-FNA. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis. Studies were identi...
A diagnosis of pancreatic cancer in a first-degree relative increases an individuals' risk of this cancer. However, it is not clear whether this cancer risk increases in individuals with pancreatic cy...
Pancreatic carcinoma is a common cause of cancer deaths worldwide. Biopsy is often required for the initial diagnosis of pancreatic masses. Biopsy can be performed endoscopically or percutaneously wit...
Pancreatic cancer is the fifth most common cause of cancer death in the UK. This disease often remains undiagnosed until it is at a late stage, resulting in the majority of tumours being unsuitable fo...
Recently, 3-plane symmetric needle with Franseen geometry and Fork-tip biopsy needle have been developed for histological tissue procurement. We compared 22-gauge Franseen and 22-gauge Fork-tip needle...
Usage of a single needle among two or more people for injecting drugs. Needle sharing is a high-risk behavior for contracting infectious disease.
Tumors or cancer of the PANCREAS. Depending on the types of ISLET CELLS present in the tumors, various hormones can be secreted: GLUCAGON from PANCREATIC ALPHA CELLS; INSULIN from PANCREATIC BETA CELLS; and SOMATOSTATIN from the SOMATOSTATIN-SECRETING CELLS. Most are malignant except the insulin-producing tumors (INSULINOMA).
Star-shaped, myofibroblast-like cells located in the periacinar, perivascular, and periductal regions of the EXOCRINE PANCREAS. They play a key role in the pathobiology of FIBROSIS; PANCREATITIS; and PANCREATIC CANCER.
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.
