Endoscopic treatment of chronic pancreatitis: European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) Guideline - Updated August 2018.

Endoscopy 2019 Jan 17. Epub 2019 Jan 17.

Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Amsterdam UMC, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

ESGE suggests endoscopic therapy and/or extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL) as the first-line therapy for painful uncomplicated chronic pancreatitis (CP) with an obstructed main pancreatic duct (MPD) in the head/body of the pancreas. The clinical response should be evaluated at 6 - 8 weeks; if it appears unsatisfactory, the patient's case should be discussed again in a multidisciplinary team and surgical options should be considered.Weak recommendation, low quality evidence.

Living-donor Liver Retransplantation Using the Vessels of the Previous Allograft by Means of Intragraft Dissection.

Transplant Proc 2018 Dec 18;50(10):3562-3563. Epub 2018 Sep 18.

National Cancer Center, Goyang-si, Gyeonggi-do, Korea.

Retransplantation with the use of a living-donor graft can be the only therapeutic option for patients with irreversible graft failure, especially in regions with limited access to deceased donors, but it can be technically demanding because of severe adhesion around the hepatic hilum and inferior vena cava. We introduce an effective and safe technique to overcome this challenge for right-lobe living-donor liver retransplantation by using the vessels of the previous right liver allograft with the use of intragraft dissection. The technique was used in 2 critically ill patients undergoing the graft failure. Read More

Background: Most colorectal cancer liver metastases form nodules within the hepatic parenchyma, and hepatectomy is the only radical treatment for synchronous metastases. There is concern about intrabiliary tumor growth which may affect the surgical margin, resulting in local recurrence after hepatectomy for colorectal cancer liver metastasis; however, there has been no report of the dissemination in the bile duct after hepatectomy. Here, we report an unusual case of biliary dissemination of colorectal cancer that caused recurrent intrabiliary growth after hepatectomy, and discuss the management of intrabiliary metastasis of colorectal cancer.

Radiographics 2018 Nov-Dec;38(7):2002-2018. Epub 2018 Sep 28.

From the Department of Diagnostic Radiology (B.M.C., K.K.J., B.R.F.) and Department of Medicine, Division of Gastroenterology (B.K.E.), Oregon Health and Science University, 3181 SW Sam Jackson Park Rd, Portland, OR 97239; Portland Gastroenterology Center, Portland, Maine (G.B.); and Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah (A.M.S.).

Endoscopic interventions play an important role in the modern management of pancreatic fluid collections. Successful management of pancreatitis is dependent on proper classification of the disease and its local complications. The 2012 revised Atlanta classification divides acute pancreatitis into subtypes of necrotizing pancreatitis and interstitial edematous pancreatitis (IEP) on the basis of the radiologic presence or absence of necrosis, respectively.
