The purpose of this study is to determine optimal treatment strategies for symptomatic walled-off pancreatic necrosis( WON).
The present study aims to compare the clinical efficacy and cost effectiveness of the AXIOS™ stent versus the "conventional" approach using double pigtail plastic stents in the treatment...
This is a multi-center, single-blinded, randomized trial comparing AXIOS FCSEMS (Fully Covered Self Expanding Metal Stent) and plastic stents for EUS (Endoscopic Ultrasound)-guided managem...
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...
RANDOMIZED MULTICENTER STUDY COMPARING PLASTIC STENTS AND SELF-EXPANDING METALLIC STENTS IN THE EUS-GUIDED TRANSMURAL DRAINAGE OF WALLED-OFF PANCREATIC NECROSIS. SPANISH CENTERS PARTNERS ...
Dedicated stents placed under endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) guidance have shown promise for the management of pancreatic walled-off necrosis (WON). A long duration of stent placement may increase the...
EUS-guided transmural drainage is effective in the management of pancreatic walled-off necrosis (WON). A lumen-apposing metal stent (LAMS) has recently been developed specifically for the drainage of ...
Bi-flanged metal stents (BFMS) have shown promise in the drainage of walled-off pancreatic necrosis (WON), but their placement requires multiple steps and the use of other devices. More recently, a...
Pancreatic fluid collections are a frequent complication of acute pancreatitis. The revised Atlanta criterion classifies chronic fluid collections into pseudocysts and walled-off pancreatic necrosis (...
Acute pancreatitis represents a disorder characterized by acute necroinflammatory changes of the pancreas and is histologically characterized by acinar cell destruction. Diagnosed clinically with the ...
The type species of AQUABIRNAVIRUS, causing infectious pancreatic necrosis in salmonid fish and other freshwater and marine animals including mollusks.
A severe form of acute INFLAMMATION of the PANCREAS characterized by one or more areas of NECROSIS in the pancreas with varying degree of involvement of the surrounding tissues or organ systems. Massive pancreatic necrosis may lead to DIABETES MELLITUS, and malabsorption.
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).
