J Pancreat Cancer 2020 12;6(1):32-39. Epub 2020 May 12.

Department of Surgery, Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, New Brunswick, New Jersey, USA.

The neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is a marker of inflammation that has been investigated as a prognostic factor in many diseases. We hypothesized that NLR would be lower in patients undergoing minimally invasive distal pancreatectomy (MIDP). Using a prospective database, we identified patients who underwent open or minimally invasive (laparoscopic/robotic) distal pancreatectomy and splenectomy from 2006 to 2018. Read More

Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor of the spleen: a case report and review of the literature.

Int J Clin Exp Pathol 2019 1;12(5):1795-1800. Epub 2019 May 1.

Department of Medical Imaging, Xingtai People's Hospital Affiliated to Hebei Medical University Xingtai, Hebei, P. R. China.

Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor of the spleen (IMTS) is an extremely rare, intermediate malignant tumor with unclear etiology, and is most frequently detected incidentally. IMTS presents with nonspecific symptoms that pose a diagnostic challenge to clinicians or presents with the similar appearances to splenetic malignant neoplasms that pose a misdiagnose prior to surgery. Histopathology of the resected specimen remains the gold standard for diagnosing these rare splenic tumors. Read More

Laparoscopic Splenectomy: Postero-Lateral Approach.

Transl Med UniSa 2019 Jul-Dec;20:9-12. Epub 2019 Jan 12.

Division of Pediatric Surgery University of Salerno, Italy.

In paediatric population, the laparoscopic splenectomy has been preferred to the open surgery during the last years. Due to the improvement of the technique and the devices, the indications to the laparoscopic splenectomy have been increased, even though there is still a variety of conditions in which the execution of this technique is arduous. During the preoperative consult there is the need to carefully evaluate the existence of cholecystic lithiasis, the haemoglobin level in patients with SCA, platelet count in children with ITP and the vaccination status.
