Pancreatic Paraganglioma: A Case Report.

Case Rep Pancreat Cancer 2016 1;2(1):79-83. Epub 2016 Dec 1.

Department of Pathology & Immunology, Washington University in St. Louis, St. Louis, Missouri.

Paraganglionic neoplasms that originate in the adrenal medullas are referred to as pheochromocytomas, but if they arise from other paraganglia scattered throughout the body, they are referred to as paragangliomas. Pancreatic paragangliomas are an extremely rare entity as only 20 cases have been reported in the literature. They tend to be nonfunctional and typically occur in the fourth to fifth decade of life without a gender predilection. Read More

Intraoperative Frozen Section Analysis of the Pancreas: A Case Report and Review of the Literature.

Case Rep Pancreat Cancer 2016 1;2(1):71-74. Epub 2016 Nov 1.

Department of Surgery, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Intraoperative frozen section analysis is frequently used to obtain a histological diagnosis at the time of resection and to assess resection margins. Although many surgeons perceive a clinical benefit, particularly with respect to the transected resection margins, the limitations and pitfalls of frozen section analysis have not been well documented. Here, we report a case of serous cystadenoma with background pancreatitis masquerading on frozen section as an invasive pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma. Read More

Late Pancreatic Fistula After Pancreaticoduodenectomy: A Case Report and Review of the Literature.

Case Rep Pancreat Cancer 2016 1;2(1):65-70. Epub 2016 Nov 1.

Department of Surgery, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts.

More than 100 years after its conception, the pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) remains a challenging procedure with significant morbidity, often due to a postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF). Factors related to patient physiology, tumor anatomy/pathology, and surgeon/surgical technique have been studied, yielding results at times conflicting and difficult to reproduce. We present a case of a late POPF along with a brief review of the current literature. Read More

Celiac Axis Resection with Distal Pancreatectomy (Modified Appleby Procedure) Allows for R0 Resection of Pancreatic Body and Tail Mass Following Neoadjuvant Therapy: Case Report and Literature Review.

Case Rep Pancreat Cancer 2016 1;2(1):53-57. Epub 2016 Jun 1.

Department of Surgery, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The modified Appleby procedure has been developed for cancer of the pancreatic body or tail with celiac axis invasion, historically classified as unresectable disease. Post-Appleby resection, the source of arterial blood to the liver is the superior mesenteric artery, which supplies the gastroduodenal artery and ultimately feeds the proper hepatic artery. In cases of inadequate collateralization, preoperative coiling of the common hepatic artery (CHA) or intraoperative reconstruction via an aorto-hepatic bypass has been described. Read More

Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy and Appleby Procedure for Pancreatic Acinar Cell Carcinoma: A Case Report.

Case Rep Pancreat Cancer 2016 1;2(1):46-49. Epub 2016 Jun 1.

Department of Surgery, Jefferson Pancreas, Biliary, and Related Cancer Center, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Acinar cell carcinoma is a rare form of pancreatic cancer, accounting for 1-2% of all cases of exocrine pancreatic neoplasms in adults. Due to its rarity, no randomized controlled trials have been performed to determine the optimal treatment options. As such, high-quality case reports and case series are needed to help guide clinicians in the management of this deadly disease. Read More

Colloid Carcinoma of the Pancreas: Case Report and Review of the Literature.

Case Rep Pancreat Cancer 2016 1;2(1):40-45. Epub 2016 Jun 1.

Department of Gastrointestinal Oncology, H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute, Tampa, Florida.

Colloid carcinoma of the pancreas is a rare type of pancreatic cancer that has a more indolent course and superior long-term survival compared to ductal adenocarcinoma. There is a dearth of literature describing this diagnosis due to its rarity and its only recent recognition as a distinct clinical entity. We present two cases of patients with colloid carcinoma and discuss the presentation and management of this disease. Read More

Taking the Lead: A Case Report of a Leiomyoma Causing Duodeno-Duodenal Intussusception and Review of Literature.

Case Rep Pancreat Cancer 2016 1;2(1):19-22. Epub 2016 Apr 1.

Department of Surgery, Jefferson Pancreas, Biliary, and Related Cancer Center, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Duodenal masses are rare entities and symptomatic presentation generally is due to abdominal pain or the presence of gastrointestinal bleeding. A number of published case reports in the literature have detailed various neoplasms that have caused an intussusception isolated to the duodenum. This is a particularly unusual phenomenon due to the location and fixation of this portion of the proximal small bowel to the retroperitoneum. Read More

Congenital Variants of Gastrointestinal Rotation Found at Resection of Hepatopancreatobiliary Tumors: A Case Series with Review of the Literature.

Case Rep Pancreat Cancer 2016 1;2(1):6-13. Epub 2016 Jan 1.

Department of Surgery, Jefferson Pancreas, Biliary and Related Cancer Center, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Gastrointestinal malrotation arises from intrauterine events that occur early in the first trimester of gestation, and can result in a midgut volvulus that classically presents in the neonatal period with bilious emesis. Gastrointestinal malrotation can present clinically with symptoms such as chronic abdominal pain or bowel obstruction, or remain completely asymptomatic only to be discovered as an incidental finding much later in life during surgical exploration for other diseases. We sought to identify the prevalence of gastrointestinal malrotation in patients undergoing surgical exploration for hepatopancreatobiliary (HPB) malignancy and describe the operative considerations of these cases.
