BACKGROUND International consensus guidelines for the management of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) of the pancreas provide several factors that can be used to predict which IPMNs will become malignant.The sensitivity of each factor's predictive accuracy, however, is relatively low, making it difficult to determine the appropriate treatment in individual cases. The aim of this study was to investigate whether increasing the number of predictive factors might augment the… CONTINUE READING
