To study the safety and effectiveness of the AXIOS Stent with Electrocautery Enhanced Delivery System for endoscopic trans enteric drainage of pancreatic pseudocyst and walled-off necrosis...
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 retrospective chart review study examining 1) demographic data such as age, sex, etiology of pancreatitis 2) clinical data including radiological characteristics of walled off pa...
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...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of surgical transgastric necrosectomy (TGN) for walled-off pancreatic necrosis (WON) in selected patients.
Endoscopic drainage (ED) with or without necrosectomy, and minimally invasive surgical necrosectomy (MISN) have been increasingly utilized for treatment of symptomatic sterile and infected pancreatic ...
Pancreatic walled-off necrosis (WON) may require adjunctive direct endoscopic necrosectomy (DEN) following transmural stent placement. DEN is performed immediately or delayed in relation to index endo...
Acute pancreatitis complicated by walled-off necrosis (WON) is associated with high morbidity and mortality, and if infected, this condition typically necessitates intervention. Clinical outcomes of i...
Pancreatic fluid collection (PFC) is a common complication of acute pancreatitis. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided drainage, which is often followed by direct endoscopic necrosectomy (DEN), has beco...
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).
