Localized type 1 autoimmune pancreatitis superimposed upon preexisting intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms.
Multiple localized type 1 autoimmune pancreatitis occurring only in the vicinity of the branch duct-type IPMN is diagnosed.
Intraductal tubulopapillary neoplasm of the pancreas with somatic BRAF mutation
This case suggests that an activation of RAS-mitogen-activated protein kinase signaling pathway may play a role in development of some of ITPNs, and a possible mechanism of tumor recurrence in ITPN is discussed.
Endoscopic management of Dieulafoy lesions of the stomach: a case study of 26 patients.
Bleeding from Dieulafoy lesions can be managed successfully by endoscopic methods, and these should be regarded as the first choice in their management.
Bleeding esophageal ulcers caused by NSAIDs
These NSAID-induced ulcers had characteristic endoscopic features, namely, a large, shallow, discrete ulcer in the midesophagus near the aortic arch with normal surrounding mucosa, suggesting that the injury resulted from mucosal contact with NSAIDs.

A 59-year-old man who had undergone left nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma (RCC) 14 years previously was admitted for the treatment of obstructive jaundice and was diagnosed with metastatic RCC of the pancreas, with marked extension into MPD.
Experimental studies of thermal therapy for severe nonvariceal bleeding in dogs
Both the heater probe and the Gold probe are effective in achieving hemostasis in a canine model of nonvariceal hemorrhage, and both methods are superior to injection therapy.
Perioperative hepatic functional risk assessed with technetium-99m diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid-galactosyl human serum albumin liver scintigraphy in patients undergoing pancreaticoduodenectomy
SummaryConclusion: Liver scintigraphy with technetium-99m diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid-galactosyl human serum albumin (Tc-GSA) can be used to predict outcome of biliary drainage and hepatic
Acute pancreatitis caused by an ectopic mediastinal parathyroid adenoma
The final diagnosis was acute pancreatitis due to hypercalcemia induced by an ectopic mediastinal parathyroid adenoma, and 99mTc-sestamibi and CT scans are useful for their diagnosis and localization.
