In a series of 22 pancreatic acinar cell carcinomas, including two acinar cystadenocarcinomas, cellular differentiation was analyzed by immunocytochemistry and electron microscopy. In addition, overexpression of p53 protein and Ki-ras codon 12 mutation was studied. Four of the 20 noncystic acinar cell carcinomas showed a pure acinar pattern, nine an(More)
The clinico-pathological features of five cases with a distinctive pancreatic tumour are presented. The tumours, which occurred only in young women and an adolescent girl, were of large size (2.5-10 cm), had an uncharacteristic symptomatology and showed fibrous encapsulation with no evidence of metastases. The histological features include (1) solid areas(More)
A clinicopathologic study was conducted on six patients with intraductal papillary neoplasms of the pancreas. The patients were of both sexes and their ages ranged from 64 to 79 years. Three patients had a long history of symptoms mimicking chronic pancreatitis. The tumors involved the main pancreatic duct in the head-body region either diffusely or(More)
Prognostication of invasive ampullary adenocarcinomas (AACs) and their stratification into appropriate management categories have been highly challenging owing to a lack of well-established predictive parameters. In colorectal cancers, recent studies have shown that tumor budding confers a worse prognosis and correlates significantly with nodal metastasis(More)
To elucidate the precise origin and characteristics of the epithelial components of osteofibrous dysplasia (OF) and adamantinoma (AD), the expression of transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta1, beta2 and beta3 and cytokeratin (CK) subtypes were studied in five cases of AD and 18 cases of OF by immunohistochemistry. CK1 was expressed in 10 out of 18 OF cases;(More)
OBJECTIVES To better understand the metastatic potential of T1 colorectal cancer, we investigated variations in nuclear morphometry and expression of angiogenic factors in cancer cells at the invasive front. Sixty-five patients who had undergone curative resection were entered. METHODS Nuclear shape factor, area, width, and proportion of cells with large(More)
Based on histopathological examination of 264 exocrine pancreatic tumours (167 autopsy and 97 surgical) from the files of the Institute of Pathology, University of Hamburg, over a 15-yr period (1966-1980), a histogenetic classification is proposed. In addition to the more common neoplasms this also includes rarer and more recently defined entities. Of the(More)
Nine acinar cell carcinomas of the pancreas, 2 pancreatoblastomas, 16 solid-cystic (papillary-cystic) tumors, and 20 ductal adenocarcinomas were immunocytochemically investigated using antisera against four pancreatic enzymes (alpha-amylase, lipase, trypsinogen, chymotrypsinogen), four pancreatic hormones, neuron specific enolase (NSE), alpha-1-antitrypsin(More)
OBJECTIVE The clinicopathological significance of four morphological types of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms of the pancreas (IPMNs; gastric, intestinal, pancreatobiliary and oncocytic) was assessed. DESIGN Retrospective multicentre analysis of 283 surgically resected IPMNs. RESULTS Of the 283 IPMNs, 139 were of the gastric type, 101 were(More)
An experimental study was done in rats in which the animals were randomly divided into four groups. Each group included bilateral standard island groin flaps. The right side flap was used as control. On the left side, after elevation of the flap, different types of arteriovenous connections were constructed distal to the pedicle between the femoral artery(More)
