Robot-assisted whipple’s operation for solid pseudopapillary tumour of pancreas
This case demonstrates the feasibility of robot assisted Whipple’s operation, which has not been extensively reported in the literature. Expand
Squamous cell carcinoma and lipomatous pseudohypertrophy of the pancreas
A 68-year-old woman who had been treated for non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus for the past 20 years was admitted to hospital because of abdominal pain and weight loss and a tumour was found to be a primary squamous cell carcinoma with a spindle cell component. Expand
Extended Pancreatoduodenectomy for Adenocarcinoma of the Pancreatic Head
By this procedure, a significant improvement has been obtained in the long-term survival rates and the locoregional control, but such a beneficial effect is limited to the less advanced tumors. Expand
Pancreatic heterotopia in the gastric antrum.
Heterotopic pancreas is a relatively infrequent lesion, with an incidence ranging from 0.5% to 13% in autopsy studies, usually found in the upper gastrointestinal tract, with more than 90% of the cases involving the stomach, duodenum, jejunum, and Meckel diverticulum. Expand
Waterfalls of mucin.
Tumor de colisión periampular
The case of a periampullary collision tumor, in which a duodenal-wall carcinoid and an adenocarcinoma of the head of the pancreas coexisted, is reported, which is the sixth reported case of this rare neoplastic association. Expand
The use of endoscopic ultrasound in the diagnosis of solid pseudopapillary tumors of the pancreas in children.
EUS-FNA represents a diagnostic technique commonly used in adults that may be useful in identifying the rare pediatric patient with pancreatic malignancy. Expand
A serous oligocystic adenoma of the head of the pancreas successfully treated by dome resection and chemocautery: a new approach to serous oligocystic adenoma.
A new approach to SOA diagnosis and treatment that involves minimally invasive procedures is developed and revealed a serous oligocystic adenoma with no malignancy of the pancreas adjacent to the peripheral organs. Expand
Mucin-Producing Tumor of the Pancreas Associated with Pyothorax: Report of a Case
The case of a 76-year-old man for whom an invasive mucin-producing tumor of the pancreas (MPTP) was successfully treated by surgery is reported, the first case of MPTP associated with pyothorax due to fistula formation. Expand
