OBJECTIVE To investigate different subtypes of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) of the pancreas and their prognostic value. BACKGROUND IPMNs of the pancreas are estimated to have a better prognosis than pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas (PDACs). In addition to the different growth types (ie, main duct vs. branch duct types), the histological subtypes of IPMNs (ie, intestinal, pancreatobiliary, gastric, and oncocytic type) are prognostically relevant. These subtypes can be… CONTINUE READING
