Head-to-head comparison between endoscopic ultrasound guided lumen apposing metal stent and plastic stents for the treatment of pancreatic fluid collections: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Sci 2021 Jun 9. Epub 2021 Jun 9.

Gastroenterology Unit oh Hospital General Universitario de Alicante, Alicante, Spain.

Background And Aims: Peripancreatic fluid collections (PFCs) result from acute or chronic pancreatic inflammation that suffers a rupture of its ducts. Currently, it exists three options for drainage or debridement of pancreatic pseudocysts and WON. The traditional procedure is the drainage by placing double pigtail plastic stents (DPPS); LAMS has a biflanged design with a wide lumen that avoids occlusion with necrotic tissue, which is more common with DPPS and reduces the possibility of migration.

Autoimmune pancreatitis with pancreatic calculi and pseudocyst: a case report.

J Int Med Res 2021 May;49(5):3000605211014798

Department of Digestive Medicine, Shenzhen Hospital of Southern Medical University, Shenzhen, Guangdong, People's Republic of China.

Autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) is a unique form of pancreatitis often associated with infiltration of immunoglobulin G4-positive cells, a swollen pancreas, and diffuse narrowing of the pancreatic ducts. Unlike acute pancreatitis, AIP is rarely complicated with pseudocysts. Pancreatic calculi, a feature of ordinary chronic pancreatitis, are unusual during short-term follow-up in patients with AIP.

Idiopathic giant pancreatic pseudocyst presenting in emergency with abdominal compartment syndrome and intestinal occlusion: Case report and review of the literature.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2021 Apr 26;81:105812. Epub 2021 Mar 26.

General and Emergency Surgery Department, Garibaldi Hospital, Piazza Santa Maria di Gesù 5, 95100, Catania, Italy.

Introduction And Importance: This is the first case of idiopathic giant pancreatic pseudocyst (IGPP) causing intestinal occlusion, intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) and abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) reported in the literature. Diagnosis of IGPP in emergency is a challenge because of its rarity and the absence of a history of pancreatitis or pancreatic trauma and specific clinical presentation.

Michelle D Reid

Arch Pathol Lab Med 2021 Apr 9. Epub 2021 Apr 9.

From the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, Georgia.

Context.—: Because of new and improved imaging techniques, cystic/intraductal pancreatobiliary tract lesions are increasingly being discovered, and brushings or endoscopic ultrasound/computed tomography/magnetic resonance imaging-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsies from these lesions have become an integral part of pathologists' daily practice. Because patient management has become increasingly conservative, accurate preoperative diagnosis is critical. Read More

Bedside Percutaneous Approach in a Critically Ill ICU Patient with Complex Pancreatobiliary Disorder Followed by Endoscopic Approach: Lessons Learnt from a Tertiary Referral Center.

Case Rep Gastroenterol 2021 Jan-Apr;15(1):210-217. Epub 2021 Feb 18.

Digestive Disease and GI Oncology Center, Medistra Hospital, Jakarta, Indonesia.

Pancreatobiliary disorder is a challenging clinical condition, especially when this condition is causing severe infection or biliary sepsis, and sometimes it requires intensive care unit (ICU) treatment. Biliary drainage is the mainstay of therapy; however, the choice of the drainage method is dependent on the patient's clinical condition and the disease itself. A 79-year-old female was transferred on a ventilator to our ICU from another hospital due to biliary sepsis, a large common bile duct stone, and an infected pancreatic pseudocyst. Read More

Endoscopic management of chronic pancreatitis.

Dig Endosc 2021 Mar 9. Epub 2021 Mar 9.

Asian Institute of Gastroenterology, Hyderabad, India.

Chronic pancreatitis (CP) is an inflammatory process characterized by irreversible morphological changes in the pancreas. Pain is the predominant symptom observed during the course of CP. The etiopathogenesis of pain in CP is multifactorial and includes ductal hypertension due to obstruction of the pancreatic duct (PD), neuropathic causes, and extrapancreatic complications of CP like pseudocyst and distal biliary obstruction.

S D Med 2020 Nov;73(11):520-522

Department of Surgery, Sanford USD Medical Center, Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Pancreatic duct rupture and fistula formation are known complications of distal pancreatectomy (DP); however, internal pancreatic fistulas and duct ruptures as a result of pancreatitis with delayed onset after DP are rare. This case reports a 77-year-old man with acute pancreatitis presenting with a delayed pancreatic duct rupture, fistula, and pseudocyst formation at the resection site three years status-post distal pancreatectomy for resection of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm of pancreas. This case report is designed to bring attention to the possible risk of delayed internal pancreatic fistula years post distal pancreatectomy, in the setting of a first episode of acute pancreatitis.

Department of General, Gastroenterological and Oncological Surgery, Collegium Medicum Nicolaus Copernicus University, 87-100 Torun, Poland.

Endotherapy is a recognized, widely available, and minimally invasive treatment method for pancreatic fluid collections (PFCs) formed in the course of acute pancreatitis (AP). The use of endoscopic techniques in the treatment of main pancreatic duct (MPD) disruption due to AP remains unclear.

Pancreatic Pseudocyst Hemorrhage Complicated by an Acute ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction.

Cureus 2021 Feb 27;13(2):e13585. Epub 2021 Feb 27.

Gastroenterology, Baystate Medical Center, Springfield, USA.

ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction is a medical emergency that requires immediate treatment with potent anti-platelet and anti-coagulant therapies and reperfusion by percutaneous coronary intervention. The use of anti-platelet and anti-coagulant therapies can result in hemorrhagic complications, and their use is challenging in a patient with an active gastrointestinal bleed. We report the case of a patient who simultaneously presented with both an ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction and a hemorrhagic pancreatic pseudocyst. Read More

Cureus 2021 Jan 27;13(1):e12933. Epub 2021 Jan 27.

Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, USA.

The pancreas is an unusual source of gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding. GI bleeding from the pancreas is most frequently a result of complications from acute or chronic pancreatitis resulting in vascular damage and bleeding into the pancreatic duct. Rarely, however, a pancreatic pseudocyst can come into contact with the GI tract and form a fistula. Read More
