OBJECTIVE:Organ preserving pancreatic resections are considered whenever malignant disease is ruled out. In tumors of low malignant potential such as cystadenomas and neuroendocrine tumors, the diagnosis is rarely established preoperatively. We studied the feasibility of cytodiagnosis using endosonography-guided fine-needle aspiration in determining the operative approach.METHODS:A total of 78 patients (16 female, 62 male; mean age 61.4 yr, range 31–82 yr) with focal pancreatic lesions… CONTINUE READING
