Abstract.Background: We evaluated the usefulness of endoscopic ultrasonography for detecting pancreatobiliary carcinoma and assessing portal venous invasion by carcinoma. Methods: Seventy-three patients with pancreatic carcinoma (54 patients) or bile duct carcinoma (19 patients) underwent endoscopic ultrasonography, transabdominal ultrasonography, computed tomography (CT), and angiography. All patients underwent tumor resection and histological examination for portal venous invasion. Results… Expand
Role of computer tomography and endoscopic ultrasonography in assessing portal and superior mesenteric vessels invasion in cephalo-pancreatic adenocarcinoma.
TLDR
Both types of examination have showed good accuracies in diagnosing vascular invasion separately and a combination of the two may be used when the CECT result is uncertain as it provides a higher chance of a correct diagnosis. Expand
Role of Endoscopic Ultrasonography in the Management of Malignant Pancreatico-biliary Disease
TLDR
With the continuing improvement of EUS and the development of accessories, EUS plays a more important role as an interventional modality for tumor ablation and management of tumor-associated complications. Expand
Role of Endoscopic Ultrasonography and Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography in the Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer
TLDR
ERCP is essential in cases that require evaluation of pancreatic duct stricture that may be early pancreatic cancer or those that require differentiation from focal autoimmune pancreatitis, and is an essential examination method for the definitive pathological diagnosis and treatment decision strategy. Expand
Evaluation of Resectability for Pancreatic Cancer Using Endoscopic Ultrasound
TLDR
EUS can also serve as an alternative to conventional percutaneous ultrasonography and biopsy for identification of liver metastases and a cyto-pathological diagnosis via EUS-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) is highly accurate. Expand
Utility of convex EUS for preoperative vascular evaluation of malignant biliary tract neoplasm.
TLDR
Overall, convex EUS is useful for the preoperative evaluation of malignant biliary tract neoplasms, and surgery may be considered when the tumor is close to the HA on computed tomography scans, however there is no obvious encasement visualized by convexEUS. Expand
Impact of endoscopic ultrasonography on diagnosis of pancreatic cancer
TLDR
Conventional EUS, CE-EUS, EUS elastography, and EUS-FNA are essential in the clinical investigation of pancreatic cancer. Expand
Role of Endoscopic Ultrasonography in the Evaluation of Extrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma
TLDR
Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is a diagnostic modality which may overcome the limitations of other imaging and biopsy techniques in this setting and complement the role of ERCP and provide a tissue diagnosis through fine needle aspiration (FNA) and staging through ultrasound imaging. Expand
Current status on the diagnosis and evaluation of pancreatic tumor in Asia with particular emphasis on the role of endoscopic ultrasound
TLDR
Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) offers a higher sensitivity (93–100%) for detection of small potentially curable pancreatic masses than other existing imaging modalities and enables the performance of endoscopic interventions. Expand
Role of Endoscopic Ultrasonography and Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography in the Clinical Assessment of Pancreatic Neoplasms.
TLDR
The ability to position the endoscopic ultrasonography transducer close to the pancreas combined with the use of fine-needle aspiration enables the accurate diagnosis of pancreatic cysts and solid masses. Expand
Impact of preoperative endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration on postoperative recurrence and survival in cholangiocarcinoma patients.
TLDR
Preoperative EUS-FNA in patients with CCA does not appear to adversely affect overall or progression-free survival and number of needle passes showed no statistically significant impact. Expand

Staging of pancreatic and ampullary carcinoma by endoscopic ultrasonography. Comparison with conventional sonography, computed tomography, and angiography.
TLDR
Endoscopic ultrasonography is the most effective single imaging procedure for local tumor staging in pancreatic and ampullary cancer and will improve the assessment of tumor resectability and further decrease the need for explorative laparotomy. Expand
Endoscopic ultrasonographic criteria of vascular invasion by potentially resectable pancreatic tumors.
TLDR
Three EUS signs appear to be reliable criteria for the identification of tumor invasion of major veins forming the portal confluence vessel in patients with a pancreatic neoplasm that appears to be resectable on standard radiologic tests. Expand
Comparison of angiography and ultrasound in the evaluation of the portal venous system in pancreatic carcinoma
TLDR
Ultrasound can make angiography prior to laparotomy unnecessary in many cases if thorough evaluation of the portal venous system is emphasized during the initial ultrasound study. Expand
Endoscopic ultrasonography in the diagnosis and staging of pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Results of a prospective study with comparison to ultrasonography and CT scan.
TLDR
Endoscopic ultrasonography is an accurate tool for diagnosis and locoregional spread assessment of pancreatic cancer when performed in a reference center, however, EUS does not enable differentiation of pseudotumorous pancreatitis from adenocarcinoma. Expand
The diagnosis of pancreatic cancer by endoscopic ultrasonography.
TLDR
Endoscopic ultrasonography had the highest detection rate of tumors of the pancreas, especially in cases of small tumors under 20 mm in size, and also proved to be valuable for the detection of vascular invasion. Expand
Endoscopic ultrasonography in diagnosis and staging of pancreatic cancer
TLDR
Endoscopic ultrasonography is an accurate method for diagnosis of pancreatic cancer and assessment of their locoregional spread and is particularly useful for detecting small tumors, and is more sensitive than CT and US for detecting venous and gastric invasion. Expand
Evaluation of endoscopic ultrasonography in the pre-operative staging of carcinoma of the ampulla of Vater and common bile duct.
TLDR
Endoscopic ultrasonography was performed in 23 patients with carcinoma of the ampulla of Vater (ampulla) and in 16 patients with common bile duct (CBD) carcinoma and it is concluded that EUS is a valuable method for the detection and staging of tumors of the Ampulla and CBD. Expand
Comparison of CT and angiography in assessing resectability of pancreatic carcinoma.
TLDR
CT is about as accurate as angiography in assessing resectability of pancreatic carcinoma, but several other patients were found to have liver metastases, resulting in a radiologic diagnosis of nonresectability in 20 patients overall. Expand
Surgical indication and significance of portal vein resection in biliary and pancreatic cancer.
TLDR
Tumor and vascular resection was carried out in 27 patients with biliary and pancreatic cancer, and forty-seven percent of the patients who had no lymph node metastasis or peritumor lymph nodes metastasis without cancerous invasion of the portal vein intima survived more than 2 years. Expand
Computed tomographic appearance of resectable pancreatic carcinoma.
TLDR
Thirteen patients with resectable pancreatic carcinoma were examined by computed tomography (CT) and a small cancer without change in pancreatic contour is difficult to detect with CT. Expand
