AIM To investigate if a change in the emergency theatre prioritisation affects outcomes for a common urgent operation such as appendicectomy. METHODS We prospectively recorded data(More)
BACKGROUND Cystic pancreatic endocrine tumors (CPETs) are rare lesions and their biological features have been scarcely investigated. AIM To compare clinical and pathological features of resected non-functioning sporadic CPETs (NF-CPETs) with solid pancreatic endocrine tumors (SPETs) in a single-institution experience. METHODS All patients with a(More)
BACKGROUND The value of surgical resection in the management of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNET) with liver metastases (LM) is still debated. The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcomes of surgery of PNET with LM. METHODS Patients with PNET with synchronous LM between 2000 and 2011 from 4 high-volume institutions were included. The patients(More)
Appropriate surgical strategies for management of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) of the pancreas are a matter of debate. Preoperative and intraoperative evaluation of malignant potential of IPMN and of patient's comorbidities is of paramount importance to balance potential complications of surgery with tumors' risk of being or becoming(More)
BACKGROUND The incidence of small intestine neuroendocrine tumors (SI-NETs) is increasing, but few studies have investigated risk factors for their occurrence, suggesting that family history (FH) of any cancer, smoking and previous cholecystectomy are associated with an increased risk. Such studies investigated small series or examined cancer registries(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of conservative treatment for nonfunctioning pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (NF-PNEN) ≤2 cm in multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1)-affected patients compared with surgical treatment. METHODS The databases of 4 tertiary referral institutions (San Raffaele Scientific Institute, Milan;(More)
BACKGROUND Laparoscopic bowel resections for endometriosis are safe and effective but only short-term follow-up has been evaluated. In the present study long-term outcome in terms of intestinal and urinary function, fertility, chronic pain, and recurrence was assessed. MATERIALS AND METHODS From January 2002 to December 2010 nine hundred patients(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of combined (68)Ga and (18)F-FDG PET/CT on treatment management for patients with pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (PNET). METHODS Between January 2012 and April 2014, 49 consecutive patients with a cytologically and/or histologically proven diagnosis of PNET underwent combined (68)Ga and (18)FDG(More)
