Department of Gastroenterological Endoscopy, The First Affiliated Hospital of Dalian Medical University, 222 Zhongshan road, Xigang district, Dalian, 116011, Liaoning, China.

In order to evaluate the effectiveness of various methods we applied to decrease the influence of periampullary diverticula (PAD) on the success rate and complications of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) in the treatment of common bile duct (CBD) stones, we enrolled patients with CBD stones who had been treated by ERCP in our hospital between January 2015 and December 2018. According to the presence of PAD, the patients were divided into a PAD group and a non-PAD group. The rate of complete stone removal in the first session, the rate of overall stone removal, the frequency of application of mechanical lithotripsy, and procedure-related complications, including bleeding, hyperamylasemia, pancreatitis, perforation, and infection of biliary tract were recorded.

The Combination of Pancreas Texture and Postoperative Serum Amylase in Predicting Pancreatic Fistula Risk.

Am Surg 2018 Jun;84(6):889-896

Postoperative pancreatic fistula (PF) remains one of the most significant complications after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). Recently, studies have suggested that post-PD serum hyperamylasemia (HA) may be a risk factor. In this study, we evaluate the relationship of pancreas texture and post-operative serum amylase levels in determining PF risk. Read More

Typical Kawasaki Disease Presenting With Pancreatitis and Bilateral Parotid Gland Involvement: A Case Report and Literature Review.

Front Pediatr 2018 11;6:90. Epub 2018 Apr 11.

Section of Pediatrics Immunology and Rheumatology, Department of Pediatrics, University of Pisa, Pisa, Italy.

We describe the case of a 3-year child in which pancreatic and parotid gland involvement preceded the development of the classical clinical phenotype of a typical Kawasaki disease (KD). The child was referred to the Emergency Department with a story of 3 days of continuous fever associated with abdominal pain and bilaterally swelling in the parotid regions; laboratory evaluation identified markedly increased levels of total amylase, pancreatic amylase, lipase, and transaminase, and diagnosis of pancreatitis was posed. After 9 days of fever and persistence of the clinical features, the classical signs of KD appeared, and the child was treated with intravenous immunoglobulins (IVIG), showing a dramatic response with complete resolution of the clinical picture.
