Good stents gone bad: endoscopic treatment of proximally migrated pancreatic duct stents.
Diffuse small intraductal tumors rendered the pancreatic duct dilatation irregular, mimicking autoimmune pancreatitis, and the solid component within the cystic mass of the pancreas led the radiologist to misdiagnose the malignant pancreatic IPMN on multimodality imaging.
Nowadays, the epithelial origin is the most widely accepted, based on the K-ras codon 12 mutation identified in the mononuclear tumor cells--that is one of the driver mutation also present in conventional pancreatic duct adenocarcinoma, and on the retained expression of epithelial markers (CK, EMA)--at least focally [19].
End fistulas include disconnected duct syndrome (DDS), which is the most common cause of PEPE DDS, which can be partial or complete, is necrosis of a pancreatic duct segment along with a large segment full-thickness parenchymal necrosis leading to the disconnection of distal viable pancreas.
Management of side-branch IPMNs is based on the presence of high risk stigmata (obstructive jaundice, enhancing solid component, or main pancreatic duct at least 10 mm in size) or worrisome features (pancreatitis, cyst at least 3 cm in size, thickened/enhancing cyst walls, main duct size 5-9 mm, nonenhancing mural nodule, or abrupt change in pancreatic duct caliber with distal pancreatic atrophy).
In the group of 70 patients, the following lesions were found: normal pancreatic ducts were observed in 35 patients, PanIN 1A in 65 patients, PanIN 1B in 67 patients, PanIN 2 in 51 patients and only 21 patients had PanIN 3 (Table 2).
Pancreatic ducts as an important route of tumor extension for acinar cell carcinoma of the pancreas.
In three patients with idiopathic CP, severely dilated pancreatic duct and diffuse stones along the duct were observed (Fig.
It has been reported that endoscopic pancreatic duct stenting provides both short-term and long-term relief from persistent or relapsing pain in severe chronic pancreatitis with distal ductal strictures and proximal dilation [3-8].
Endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERCP) was performed to investigate the biliary or pancreatic duct, but cannulation of the ampulla of Vater could not be performed successfully due to the invasion of the tumor.
Technical success was defined as the placement of a plastic stent into the pancreatic duct. Clinical success was defined as the improvement of symptoms and pancreatitis within a week.
