Isolated Pancreatic Tail Injury in Paediatrics; A Case Report and Literature Review.

Bull Emerg Trauma 2020 Oct;8(4):249-252

Department of Radiology, Selayang Hospital, 68100, Batu Caves, Selangor Darul Ehsan , Malaysia.

Pancreatic injury in paediatrics is a rare condition and can be difficult to diagnose. The diagnostic challenge is due to its symptom of vague abdominal pain which usually results in late presentation. Elevated biochemical markers such as amylase and lipase can aid in the evaluation of pancreatic injury, however, it is not specific and is only evident after several hours of trauma. Read More

Role of pancreatography in the endoscopic management of encapsulated pancreatic collections - review and new proposed classification.

World J Gastroenterol 2020 Dec;26(45):7104-7117

Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Unit, Department of Gastroenterology, Hospital das Clínicas, University of São Paulo, São Paulo 05403000, Brazil.

Pancreatic fluids collections are local complications related to acute or chronic pancreatitis and may require intervention when symptomatic and/or complicated. Within the last decade, endoscopic management of these collections endoscopic ultrasound-guided transmural drainage has become the gold standard treatment for encapsulated pancreatic collections with high clinical success and lower morbidity compared to traditional surgery and percutaneous drainage. Proper understanding of anatomic landmarks, including assessment of the main pancreatic duct and any associated lesions - such as disruptions and strictures - are key to achieving clinical success, reducing the need for reintervention or recurrence, especially in cases with suspected disconnected pancreatic duct syndrome.

Disconnected pancreatic duct syndrome: Updated review on clinical implications and management.

Pancreatology 2020 Sep 31;20(6):1035-1044. Epub 2020 Jul 31.

Department of Gastroenterology, Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER), Sector 12, Chandigarh, 160012, India. Electronic address:

Disconnected Pancreatic Duct Syndrome (DPDS) is an important but often overlooked complication of acute necrotising pancreatitis (ANP) that occurs due to necrosis of the main pancreatic duct (PD). This segmental necrosis leads on to disconnection between the viable upstream pancreatic parenchyma and the duodenum. The disconnected and functional segment of pancreas continues to secrete pancreatic juice that is not drained into the gastrointestinal tract and lead on to recurrent pancreatic fluid collections (PFC), refractory external pancreatic flstulae and chronic abdominal pain/recurrent pancreatitis.

Pictorial Review of Mediastinal Masses with an Emphasis on Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

Korean J Radiol 2021 01 11;22(1):139-154. Epub 2020 Aug 11.

Department of Radiology, Chonnam National University Hospital, Gwangju, Korea.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become a crucial tool for evaluating mediastinal masses considering that several lesions that appear indeterminate on computed tomography and radiography can be differentiated on MRI. Using a three-compartment model to localize the mass and employing a basic knowledge of MRI, radiologists can easily diagnose mediastinal masses. Here, we review the use of MRI in evaluating mediastinal masses and present the images of various mediastinal masses categorized using the International Thymic Malignancy Interest Group's three-compartment classification system.
