Two cases of pancreaticoduodenal aneurysm with median arcuate ligament syndrome treated with coil embolization and median arcuate ligament incision.

Radiol Case Rep 2022 Oct 1;17(10):3663-3668. Epub 2022 Aug 1.

Department of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine, Fukushima Medical University, 1 Hikariga-oka, Fukushima 960-1295, Japan.

Median arcuate ligament syndrome is a clinical condition in which the median arcuate ligament causes compression and narrowing of the celiac artery. It has been reported that collateral pathways, which is developed by the decrease of blood flow from the celiac artery, facilitates the formation of aneurysms. Aneurysms around the pancreas in particular require aggressive therapeutic intervention, because a rupture can be fatal. Read More

Standardized right artery first approach during laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy for periampullary neoplasms: technical aspects and perioperative outcomes.

Surg Endosc 2022 Aug 3. Epub 2022 Aug 3.

Division of Oncologic and Mini-Invasive General Surgery, ASST Grande Ospedale Metropolitano Niguarda, Piazza Dell'Ospedale Maggiore, 3, 20162, Milan, Italy.

Background: The most debated aspects of laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy (LPD) concern the dissection of the pancreas from the surrounding vessels and the achievement of adequate resection margins, especially in patients with pancreatic cancer.

Methods: Data of consecutive patients undergoing LPD with right artery first approach from September 2020 to September 2021 for periampullary neoplasms (pancreatic, ampullary, duodenal, distal common biliary duct) were prospectively collected and retrospectively analyzed. The overall cohort was divided into two groups: patients affected by pancreatic carcinoma (PC) and patients affected by other periampullary neoplasms (OP). Read More

Recurrent Cytomegalovirus Infection Controlled by the Introduction of Everolimus in a Simultaneous Pancreas-Kidney Transplantation Recipient: A Case Report.

Transplant Proc 2022 Jul 29. Epub 2022 Jul 29.

Department of Surgery, Nagasaki University Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, Nagasaki, Japan.

In simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation (SPK) recipients, cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is a major complication that has been associated with the use of tacrolimus (TAC)-based immunosuppression. As one of the immunosuppressive drug options, the use of mammalian target of rapamycin inhibitors (mTORi) results in reduced rates of CMV infection in the field of solid organ transplantation. However, little is known about mTORi usage in pancreas transplantation. Read More

DEN open 2022 Apr 21;2(1):e122. Epub 2022 Apr 21.

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology Toho University Omori Medical Center Tokyo Japan.

Annular pancreas is a congenital abnormality in which part of the pancreatic head completely or partially surrounds the duodenum in a ring-like manner. The condition is thought to be an abnormality of the ventral pancreatic bud. While pancreatitis is a common complication of the annular pancreas, its recurrence may be prevented by improving the outflow of pancreatic juice. Read More

A phase 2 trial of deep-inspiration breath hold in radiotherapy of gastric lymphomas.

Phys Imaging Radiat Oncol 2022 Apr 16;22:137-141. Epub 2022 May 16.

Dept. of Oncology, Rigshospitalet, University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Background And Purpose: Radiotherapy (RT) is an important part in the treatment of gastric lymphomas and the prognosis after radiotherapy is very good with a good chance of long-term survival, so prevention of long-term adverse effects is important. In patients with gastric lymphomas cardiac late effects are of most concern. The aim of this study was to assess if the dose to the heart could be reduced with deep inspiration breath-hold (DIBH) without compromising the dose to the target or increasing the risk of other late effects.

Laparoscopic duodenum-preserving pancreatic head resection with real-time indocyanine green guidance of different dosage and timing: enhanced safety with visualized biliary duct and its long-term metabolic morbidity.

Langenbecks Arch Surg 2022 Jul 19. Epub 2022 Jul 19.

The Cancer Hospital of the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (Zhejiang Cancer Hospital), Institute of Basic Medicine and Cancer (IBMC), Chinese Academy of Sciences, Hangzhou, 310022, Zhejiang, China.

Purpose: Laparoscopic duodenum-preserving pancreatic head resection (L-DPPHR) is technically demanding with extreme difficulty in biliary preservation. Only a few reports of L-DPPHR are available with alarming bile leakage, and none of them revealed the long-term metabolic outcomes.

Hemosuccus Pancreaticus: A Rare Cause of Gastrointestinal Bleeding.

Mymensingh Med J 2022 Jul;31(3):872-875

Professor Md Mohsen Chowdhury, Professor & Head of the Yellow Unit II, Hepatobiliary, Pancreatic & Liver Transplant Surgery Department, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU), Dhaka, Bangladesh; E-mail:

Hemosuccus pancreaticus or bleeding from the pancreatic duct into the gastrointestinal tract via the ampulla of Vater is caused by rupture of the pseudoaneurysm of a peripancreatic vessel into pancreatic duct or pancreatic pseudocyst in the context of pancreatitis or pancreatic tumour or trauma. It produces diagnostic and therapeutic dilemma due to its anatomical location and that bleeding into the duodenum is intermittent and cannot be easily diagnosed by endoscopy, often needs CE-CT and angiography. In August 2019, a 60-year-old male presented with intermittent abdominal pain, gastrointestinal bleeding and high serum lipase. Read More
