Distal biliary strictures (DBS) are common and may be caused by both malignant and benign pathologies. While endoscopic procedures play a major role in their management, a comprehensive review of the subject is still lacking. Our consensus statements were formulated by a group of expert Asian pancreatico-biliary interventional endoscopists, following a proposal from the Digestive Endoscopy Society of Taiwan, the Thai Association for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, and the Tokyo Conference of Asian P...

Background Although there are numerous reports focusing on surgical indication for intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN), the recurrence patterns following surgery are less widely reported. To ascertain optimal treatment and postoperative surveillance for IPMN patients, we analyzed patterns and risk factors for recurrence after surgery for IPMN.

This study aimed to assess whether contrast-enhanced harmonic endoscopic ultrasonography (CH-EUS), compared to multidetector-row computed tomography (MDCT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), is useful for early diagnosis of small pancreatic cancer (PC). Between March 2010 and June 2018, all three imaging modalities and surgery were performed for patients with a pancreatic solid lesion measuring ≤20 mm; diagnostic ability was compared among modalities. Fifty-one of 60 patients were diagnosed w...

Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) was developed with the aim of further improving the diagnostic performance of endoscopic ultrasound. Although novel puncture needles have been specifically designed for collecting sufficient tissue specimens, clinical studies have indicated no clear difference in diagnostic performance between these novel needles and conventional puncture needles. Recently, a needle with Franseen geometry was developed specifically for EUS-FNA biopsy....

Background Pancreatic cancer is a refractory malignancy, and the development of a new effective treatment strategy is needed. We generated a dendritic cell vaccine by culturing monocytes obtained by apheresis of blood from each patient, inducing their differentiation into dendritic cells, and pulsing with tumor antigen peptides. However, the clinical efficacy of the vaccine has not been established. We therefore decided to conduct an exploratory clinical trial of dendritic cell vaccine loaded wi...
