Coincidence of splenic vein aneurysm and haemorrhagic cyst of the pancreas.

Bratisl Lek Listy 2022 ;123(5):357-361

Pseudoaneurysm of the splenic vein is a rare entity which is associated with pancreatitis in 52 % cases. Pseudocysts of the pancreas create approximately 70 % of all cystic lesions of the pancreas. One of the most dangerous complications of pancreatic pseudocysts is bleeding into the cystic lumen. Read More

The Role of Magnetic Resonance in Evaluating Abdominopelvic Trauma - Part 1: Pancreatic and Hepatobiliary Injuries.

Can Assoc Radiol J 2022 Mar 13:8465371221077650. Epub 2022 Mar 13.

Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, 116142Washington University School of Medicine, St Louis, MO, USA.

Trauma is an important cause of mortality, particularly in the young. While computed tomography (CT) is the mainstay of body imaging in the setting of trauma, magnetic resonance (MR) imaging can be useful in stable patients. Although more commonly used in spinal and musculoskeletal trauma, MR also has a role in abdominopelvic trauma. Read More

Acute recurrent pancreatitis complicated by pancreatic-portal venous fistulisation, secondary chronic portal vein thrombosis, multiple hepatic abscesses and newly diagnosed cirrhosis.

BMJ Case Rep 2022 Mar 2;15(3). Epub 2022 Mar 2.

Internal Medicine, University of Miami Health System, Miami, Florida, USA.

Pancreatic-portal vein fistula, portal vein thrombosis and liver abscesses are rare complications of acute pancreatitis which occur in the setting of localised inflammation of the pancreatic tissues and surrounding structures. We discuss a 34-year-old woman with a medical history of intermittently controlled HIV and alcohol use disorder who presents with severe epigastric pain diagnosed with acute pancreatitis. Concerning CT findings showing hypoattenuating liver lesions likely to be abscesses and multiple pancreatic pseudocysts led us to order an MRI which showed thrombosis of the portal vein, porto-pancreatic pseudocyst fistulation and cirrhotic changes.

Gastroduodenal artery pseudoaneurysm and chronic superior mesenteric vein thrombosis treated with transcatheter embolization and stent dilatation, respectively: 7 year clinical and imaging follow-up.

Radiol Case Rep 2022 Mar 23;17(3):1013-1020. Epub 2022 Jan 23.

Department of Radiology, Robert Larner M.D. College of Medicine, University of Vermont Medical Center, 111 Colchester Ave, Burlington, VT 05401, USA.

Pancreatic pseudocyst formation, arterial pseudoaneurysm, and splanchnic vein thrombosis are complications of chronic pancreatitis that account for significant morbidity and mortality in this patient population. While the short-term utility of timely endovascular intervention for treating the vascular complications of chronic pancreatitis have been relatively well documented, there is a paucity of longitudinal follow-up in this patient population, therefore making it difficult to predict the long-term efficacy of these interventions. This report details a case of a gastroduodenal artery pseudoaneurysm embolization followed by symptomatic superior mesenteric vein chronic thrombosis treated by stent dilatation in a patient with chronic pancreatitis, with 7 years clinical and imaging follow-up.

Severe Gastrointestinal Bleeding Due to Hemosuccus Pancreaticus in Chronic Pancreatitis Treated With Percutaneous Trans-splenic Embolization.

ACG Case Rep J 2022 Jan 10;9(1):e00739. Epub 2022 Jan 10.

Department of Radiology, University of Louisville, Louisville, KY.

Hemosuccus pancreaticus is a life-threatening but rare cause of intermittent upper gastrointestinal bleeding caused by acute/subacute hemorrhage into a pancreatic duct or pancreatic pseudocyst because of a ruptured pseudoaneurysm. This entity is described in patients with pseudoaneurysms that develop in the context of severe pancreatic/peripancreatic inflammatory changes. Hemosuccus pancreaticus presents a difficult diagnostic and therapeutic conundrum because it tends to involve inflamed, friable, and tortuous vascular pathways. Read More

Calcified pseudocyst: an uncommon presentation of chronic pancreatitis.

BMJ Case Rep 2021 Sep 30;14(9). Epub 2021 Sep 30.

Gastroenterology, Kasturba Medical College Manipal, Manipal Academy of Higher Education, Manipal, Karnataka, India

Pseudocysts are localised fluid collections, usually developing as a complication of acute or chronic pancreatitis. Pancreatic ductal or parenchymal calcifications are commonly seen in routine radiological imaging, but calcification of pseudocyst is extremely rare. Calcified pseudocysts have been reported in literature as case reports, but a calcified pseudocyst in the lesser sac, without underlying pancreatic calcification, has not been reported. Read More

Successful endovascular embolization of a giant splenic artery pseudoaneurysm secondary to a huge pancreatic pseudocyst with concomitant spleen invasion.

Pol J Radiol 2021 18;86:e489-e495. Epub 2021 Aug 18.

Department of Vascular and Interventional Radiology, AORN "A. Cardarelli", Napoli, Italy.

Pseudoaneurysms of the pancreatic and peripancreatic arteries is a well-known complication of chronic or necrotizing pancreatitis due to proteolytic enzymatic digestion of the arterial wall. A major part of peripancreatic pseudoaneurysms involve the splenic artery, but any peripancreatic artery may be involved and bleed. They are potentially life threatening for patients, due to spontaneous intraperitoneal rupture, rupture and fistulization into the surrounding organs, or fistulization into the pancreatic duct.
