Cyst Fluid Glucose for On-site Diagnosis of Mucinous Pancreatic Cysts

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.

EUS-guided Ablation of Pancreatic Cyst Neoplasms

This is a registry that will maintain prospective data on the clinical outcomes of all patients with pancreatic cyst lesions who undergo EUS-guided alcohol ablation.

Contrast Enhanced Ultrasound and Molecular Analysis in the Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cyst

This study evaluates the use of contrast-enhanced harmonic endoscopic ultrasound (CH-EUS) and cyst fluid molecular analysis in the differential diagnosis of pancreatic cysts and the detect...

Randomized Trial Comparing Endoscopy and Surgery for Pancreatic Cyst-gastrostomy

Patients with pancreatitis can develop inflammatory fluid collection around the pancreas called pseudocysts. Pseudocysts may cause abdominal pain when they are more than 6cm in size. These...

CHARM II: Chemotherapy for Ablation and Resolution of Mucinous Pancreatic Cysts

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of chemotherapeutic pancreatic cyst ablation using ethanol lavage followed by the infusion of a single agent chemotherapeutic agent (p...

Pancreatic heterotopia in a neonatal abdominopelvic cyst.

Pancreatic heterotopia is a rare congenital anomaly more commonly incidentally found in adults. While intra-abdominal cysts found on prenatal imaging are not uncommon, we examine a case of pancreatic ...

Pancreatic hydatid cyst as an incidental finding.

The incremental value of DNA analysis in pancreatic cysts stratified by clinical risk factors.

We determined the incremental predictive value of pancreatic cyst fluid molecular analysis to assessing malignancy risk over long term follow-up of a well-characterized cohort, given the underlying pr...

Application of confocal endomicroscopy in the diagnostic elucidation of pancreatic cyst.

Laparoscopic resection of retroperitoneal bronchogenic cyst clinically presenting as adrenal cyst.

Bronchogenic cyst localized in the retroperitoneum is a rare clinical entity. It is a congenital malformation generally occurring in the posterior mediastinum due to the abnormal development of the fo...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)

Cysts formed from epithelial inclusions in the lines of fusion of the embryonic processes which form the jaws. They include nasopalatine or incisive canal cyst, incisive papilla cyst, globulomaxillary cyst, median palatal cyst, median alveolar cyst, median mandibular cyst, and nasoalveolar cyst.

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.

Most common follicular odontogenic cyst. Occurs in relation to a partially erupted or unerupted tooth with at least the crown of the tooth to which the cyst is attached protruding into the cystic cavity. May give rise to an ameloblastoma and, in rare instances, undergo malignant transformation.

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.
