Background: The Warshaw (WT) and the Kimura (KT) techniques are both used for open or minimally invasive (MI) spleen preserving distal pancreatectomy (SPDP). Multicenter studies on long-term outcome of WT and KT are lacking. Methods: Multicenter retrospective study with transversal follow-up moment, including patients who underwent SPDP from 2000 to 2017 at three high-volume centers in Italy and the Netherlands. Primary endpoint was the incidence of short and long term complications. Patients wi...

Introduction. Despite the widespread use of the robotic technology, only a few studies with small sample sizes report its application to pancreatic diseases treatment. Our aim is to present the res...
Purpose Minimally invasive surgery has increasingly gained popularity as a treatment of choice for pancreatectomy with encouraging initial results in robotic distal pancreatectomy (RDP). However, few data are available on the comparison between RDP and laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy (LDP) for pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs). Our aim, thus, is to compare perioperative and long-term outcomes as well as total costs of RDP and LDP for pNETs.

Abstract Background Pancreatico-enteric anastomosis after pancreaticoduodenectomy can be performed using either a pancreaticojejunostomy (PJ) or pancreaticogastrostomy (PG). Differences in surgical outcomes are still a matter of debate, and less is known about long-term functional outcomes. Methods Twelve years after the conclusion of a comparative study evaluating the surgical outcomes of PJ and PG (Bassi et al . , Ann Surg 2005), available patients underwent morphological and functional pancre...

Surveillance programs on high-risk individuals (HRIs) can detect pre-malignant lesions or early pancreatic cancer (PC). We report the results of the first screening round of the Italian multicenter program supported by the Italian Association for the study of the Pancreas (AISP). The multicenter surveillance program included asymptomatic HRIs with familial (FPC) or genetic frailty (GS: BRCA1/2, p16/CDKN2A, STK11/LKB1or PRSS1, mutated genes) predisposition to PC. The surveillance program included...

Purpose IVIM-DW imaging has shown potential usefulness in the study of pancreatic lesions. Controversial results are available regarding the reliability of the measurements of IVIM-derived parameters. The aim of this study was to evaluate the reliability and the diagnostic potential of IVIM-derived parameters in differentiation among focal solid pancreatic lesions and normal pancreas (NP).

Background In the last decade many studies showed that the exhaled breath of subjects suffering from several pathological conditions has a peculiar volatile organic compound (VOC) profile. The objective of the present work was to analyse the VOCs in alveolar air to build a diagnostic tool able to identify the presence of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma in patients with histologically confirmed disease.

Abstract Background There is wide variability in the use of suture material for pancreatic anastomosis after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). This study evaluates the role of suture material on clinically relevant postoperative pancreatic fistula (CR-POPF) after pancreaticojejunostomy (PJ) in a risk-adjusted setting. Methods A retrospective study comparing (polyester) PE with polydioxanone (PDO) in 520 PDs. Patients were matched for risk for CR-POPF according to the fistula risk score (FRS) with th...
