A pancreatic hemorrhagic pseudocyst with pseudoaneurysm and the role of doppler ultrasonography: a case report.

Rev Assoc Med Bras (1992) 2019 Feb;65(2):123-126

Department of Radiology, Soonchunhyang University Seoul Hospital, Yongsan-gu, Seoul, Korea.

Hemorrhagic pseudocysts with pseudoaneurysms are a rare and fatal complication of chronic pancreatitis due to the erosion of pancreatic to peripancreatic arteries. The timing of the rupture cannot be accurately predicted, but prompt diagnosis and management are essential to prevent further bleeding. We describe the case of a 68-year-old man who presented acute epigastric pain and anemia and had a history of chronic pancreatitis with a pseudocyst. Read More

Acute-phase endovascular management of an uncommon bleeding peripancreatic pseudoaneurysm.

J Radiol Case Rep 2018 May 31;12(5):12-18. Epub 2018 May 31.

Department of Biotechnological and Applied Clinical Sciences, University of L'Aquila, via Vetoio, L'Aquila, Italy.

Pancreatic pseudoaneurysms represent relatively rare but potentially lethal complications of acute or chronic pancreatitis, involving several visceral arteries. Due to their intrinsic instability and subsequent high risk of massive bleeding, these lesions require prompt treatment, regardless of the size of the pseudoaneurysm. First option of treatment is today represented by transcatheter embolization; this treatment, in fact, shows higher rates of clinical and technical success and lower recurrence rates than conventional surgery.

Hybrid transgastric approach for the treatment of gastroesophageal junction pathologies.

Dis Esophagus 2019 Feb;32(2)

IHU-Strasbourg, Institute of Image-Guided Surgery, Strasbourg, France.

Flexible endoscopy has evolved to the point that it includes many endoluminal procedures that once required open or laparoscopic surgery, for instance, antireflux surgery, pyloromyotomy, mucosal and submucosal tumor resections, and even full-thickness resection. However, these procedures remain technically demanding due to flexible technology issues: difficult imaging, limited energy devices, lack of staplers, unsatisfactory suturing abilities, and so on. Transgastric laparoscopy or hybrid laparoscopy/flex endoscopy has been described for almost two decades as an alternative to a pure endoluminal approach, mainly for pancreatic pseudocyst drainage and full-thickness and mucosal resection of various lesions.

Interventional Endoscopic Ultrasonography in the Pancreas.

Gastrointest Endosc Clin N Am 2018 Oct 3;28(4):569-578. Epub 2018 Aug 3.

Division of Digestive and Liver Disease, Department of Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center, New York Presbyterian Hospital, 630 West 168th Street, Box 83, P&S3-401, New York, NY 10032, USA. Electronic address:

Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) has enabled therapeutic endoscopists to intervene on conditions that have otherwise not been accessible with conventional endoscopy. Inflammatory fluid collections of the pancreas that may benefit from drainage are often not identifiable without EUS. Furthermore, EUS may improve the safety of transmural drainage by allowing for the identification of intervening blood vessels and reducing the need for fluoroscopy, and is complemented by new devices that simplify the access and stent delivery process.

Next generation sequencing of the cellular and liquid fraction of pancreatic cyst fluid supports discrimination of IPMN from pseudocysts and reveals cases with multiple mutated driver clones: First findings from the prospective ZYSTEUS biomarker study.

Genes Chromosomes Cancer 2019 01 17;58(1):3-11. Epub 2018 Oct 17.

Institute of Pathology, University Hospital Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany.

Approximately half of all pancreatic cysts are neoplastic, mainly comprising intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMN), which can progress to invasive carcinoma. Current Fukuoka guidelines have limited sensitivity and specificity in predicting progression of asymptomatic pancreatic cysts. We present first results of the prospective ZYSTEUS biomarker study investigating (i) whether detection of driver mutations in IPMN by liquid biopsy is technically feasible, (ii) which compartment of IPMN is most suitable for analysis, and (iii) implications for clinical diagnostics.

A Case of Pancreatic Pseudocyst Complicated by Pseudoaneurysm.

Cureus 2018 Apr 20;10(4):e2512. Epub 2018 Apr 20.

Internal Medicine Residency, Florida Hospital-Orlando, Orlando, USA.

Pancreatic pseudocyst is a complication that can arise in both acute and chronic pancreatitis. Overtime, this encapsulated enzyme-rich fluid collection may erode into surrounding vasculature and result in the formation of a pseudoaneurysm. Pseudoaneurysms can rupture into the gastrointestinal tract and present as upper, lower, and biliary bleeding. Read More

Multi-modality imaging features distinguish pancreatic carcinoma from mass-forming chronic pancreatitis of the pancreatic head.

Oncol Lett 2018 Jun 20;15(6):9735-9744. Epub 2018 Apr 20.

Department of Radiology, Affiliated Hospital of Guizhou Medical University, Guiyang, Guizhou 550004, P.R. China.

The present study retrospectively analyzed computerized tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography-computerized tomography (PET/CT) data to identify features that may distinguish pancreatic carcinoma (PC) from mass-forming chronic pancreatitis (MFCP) of the pancreatic head. The mean diameter of the lesions was larger in the MFCP patients (n=24) than in the PC patients (n=30; 5.44±27 vs. Read More

Usefulness of dual-phase cone-beam computed tomography during arteriography and automated tumour-feeder detection software in transarterial embolization for obscure arterial bleeding in the abdomen.

J Med Imaging Radiat Oncol 2018 Jun 2;62(3):364-369. Epub 2018 May 2.

Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Fukuiken Saiseikai Hospital, Fukui, Japan.

We report the usefulness of dual-phase cone-beam computed tomography during angiography (CBCTA) and automated tumour-feeder detection software (AFD) in transarterial embolization (TAE) for three consecutive cases of obscure arterial bleeding in the abdomen. Two patients presented with lower gastrointestinal bleeding and one showed bleeding into the pancreatic pseudocyst. Superior mesenteric or common hepatic angiography did not demonstrate extravasation, but dual-phase CBCTA and AFD could identify extravasation and an access route to the bleeding point. Read More

A case report of giant pancreatic pseudocyst following acute pancreatitis: experience with endoscopic internal drainage.

BMC Res Notes 2018 Apr 27;11(1):262. Epub 2018 Apr 27.

National Hospital, Colombo, Sri Lanka.

Background: Pancreatic cysts are being diagnosed more frequently because of the increasing usage of imaging techniques. A pseudocyst with the major diameter of 10 cm is termed as a giant cyst. Asymptomatic pseudo-cysts up to 6 cm in diameter can be safely observed and monitored without intervention, but larger and symptomatic pseudocysts require intervention. Read More

Interpreting body MRI cases: classic findings in abdominal MRI.

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2018 Oct;43(10):2790-2808

Radiology, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, 132 South 10th Street, Suite 1087, Main Building, Philadelphia, PA, 19107, USA.

Few things in radiology are "pathognomonic" in their appearance or presentation. However, having an awareness of those findings which are specific to a certain entity is important when interpreting imaging studies. These classic findings can be identified with many imaging modalities, but no modality provides as many recognizable observations as an MRI. Read More

Radiological and endoscopic imaging methods in the management of cystic pancreatic neoplasms.

Acta Gastroenterol Belg 2017 Apr-Jun;80(2):283-291

Department of Radiology, Medical School of Istanbul Medeniyet University, Göztepe Training and Research Hospital.

The management of cystic pancreatic neoplasm (CPN) is a clinical dilemma because of its clinical presentations and malignant potential. Surgery is the best treatment choice ; however, pancreatic surgery still has high complication rates, even in experienced centers. Imaging methods have a definitive role in the management of CPN and computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and endoscopic ultrasonography are the preferred methods since they can reveal the suspicious features for malignancy.

Surgical Management of Pancreatic Pseudocysts.

Gastrointest Endosc Clin N Am 2018 Apr 5;28(2):131-141. Epub 2018 Jan 5.

Department of Surgery, Vanderbilt University, 801 Oxford House, 1313 21st Avenue South, Nashville, TN 37232, USA.

Open surgical intervention for treatment of simple pancreatic pseuodocyst (PP) has a high success rate and has been the historical gold standard. Open surgical intervention, however, confers significant morbidity and mortality, which has spurred the development of less invasive techniques. Laparoscopic approaches are feasible with the potential for lower complication rates and length of stay. Read More
