OBJECTIVE This observational analysis assessed the incidence of pancreatic and extrapancreatic malignancies in BD-IPMN patients. BACKGROUND Previous studies showed that progression to malignancy of pancreatic branch-duct (BD) intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) is infrequent and that extrapancreatic malignancies (EPMs) occur with unusual(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS The association between pancreatic intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) and extrapancreatic neoplasms (EPNs) is controversial. We performed a multicenter observational study to assess the incidence of EPNs after an IPMN diagnosis. METHODS 1340 patients with IPMNs were evaluated from 2000 through 2013 at 4 academic(More)
Cystic neoplasms of the pancreas (CNPs) are not considered as rare entities any more. Imaging-based population studies attested an overall prevalence of 2 %, but that becomes five times higher on individuals of more than 70 year old. This family of neoplasms includes a wide spectrum of benign, borderline, and malignant lesions whose actual biological(More)
Pancreatic cystic neoplasms (PCNs) are no longer considered as rare entities because their prevalence in the general population ranges from 3–20%. They are usually asymptomatic, incidentally discovered, and diagnosed in the seventh decade of life. The main clinical concern with regard to PCNs is related to their risk of malignant progression, which is(More)
