ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Clinical management of adenocarcinoma of the pancreas is complex, and requires a multidisciplinary approach. The same applies for the premalignant lesions that are increasingly being diagnosed. The current document is an update on the diagnosis and management of premalignant lesions and adenocarcinoma of the pancreas. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A conference to establish the basis of the literature review and manuscript redaction was organized by the Grupo Español Multidisciplinar en Cáncer Digestivo. Experts in the field from different specialties (Gastroenterology, Surgery, Radiology, Pathology, Medical Oncology and Radiation Oncology) met to prepare the present document. RESULTS: The current literature was reviewed and discussed, with subsequent deliberation on the evidence. CONCLUSIONS: Final recommendations were established in view of all the above.

2 Review [Cystic neoplasms of the pancreas. Diagnostic and therapeutic management]. 2008

Jorba, Rosa / Fabregat, Joan / Borobia, Francisco G / Busquets, Juli / Ramos, Emilio / Torras, Jaume / Lladó, Laura / Valls, Carlos / Serrano, Teresa / Rafecas, Antoni. ·Unidad de Cirugía Hepato-bilio-pancreática, Servicio de Cirugía General y Aparato Digestivo, Hospital Universitari de Bellvitge, L'Hospitalet de Llobregat, Barcelona, Spain. rjorba@csub.scs.es ·Cir Esp · Pubmed #19087774.

ABSTRACT: Management of the cystic lesions of the pancreas is of interest to general and pancreatic surgeons and physicians of other disciplines: gastroenterology, internal medicine, endoscopy, radiology, pathology, etc. The majority of cystic lesions are inflammatory pseudo-cysts. Cystic neoplasms represents only 10% of cystic lesions of the pancreas and 1% of pancreatic tumours. Preoperative diagnosis is crucial given the differences in natural history of the spectrum of benign, malignant, and borderline lesions. Serous cystadenoma is a benign lesion that requires non-surgical management if there are no symptoms. Mucinous neoplasms are premalignant lesions that mainly require pancreatic resection. Despite improved radiographic imaging techniques, definitive diagnosis is only made after studying the resection sample. The pancreatic surgical risk is a problem for the appropriate management of these patients.

3 Article Is pancreaticoduodenectomy a safe procedure in the cirrhotic patient? 2016

ABSTRACT: INTRODUCTION: Pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) is usually contraindicated in chronic liver disease. The objective of the present study was to analyze PD results in cirrhotic patients, and compare them with non-cirrhotic ones. METHODS: Between 1994 and 2014 we prospectively collected all patients with a PD for periampullar neoplasms in Hospital Universitari de Bellvitge. We registered preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative variables. We defined patients undergoing PD with liver cirrhosis as the study group (CH group), and those without liver cirrhosis as the control group (NCH group). A case/control study was performed (1/2). RESULTS: We registered 15 patients in the CH group, all with good liver function (Child A), and included 30 patients in NCH group. The causes of hepatopathy were HCV (60%) and alcoholism (40%). For the 3 moments studied, the CH group had a lower blood platelet count and a higher prothrombin ratio, compared with NCH group. Postoperative morbidity was 60% and mean postoperative stay was 25±19 days, with no differences in terms of complications between CH group and NCG group (73% vs. 53%, P=.1). Presence of ascites was higher in the CH group compared with NCH group (28 vs. 0%, P<.001). There were no differences in terms of hemorrhage or pancreatic fístula. Four patients of the CH group and 2 patients of the NCH group were reoperated on (26.7 vs. 6.7%, P=.1). There was no postoperative mortality. CONCLUSIONS: PD is a safe procedure in cirrhotic patients with good liver function although it presents high morbidity.

4 Article Genetic and epigenetic markers in the evaluation of pancreatic masses. 2013

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Methylation markers have shown promise in the early diagnosis of pancreatic carcinoma. The aim of this study was to assess the diagnostic utility of hypermethylation status of candidate genes in combination with KRAS mutation detection in the evaluation of pancreatic masses. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: Sixty-one fine needle aspirates of pancreatic masses (43 pancreatic adenocarcinomas and 18 chronic pancreatitis) were studied. Methylation status of HRH2, EN1, SPARC, CDH13 and APC were analysed using melting curve analysis after DNA bisulfite treatment. KRAS mutations were also analysed. RESULTS: The methylation panel had a sensitivity of 73% (27 of 37, CI 95% 56 to 86%) and a specificity of 100% whenever two or more promoters were found hypermethylated. KRAS mutations showed a sensitivity of 77% (33 of 43, CI 95% 62 to 88%) and a specificity of 100%. Both molecular analyses added useful information to cytology by increasing the number of informative cases. When genetic and epigenetic analyses were combined sensitivity was 84% (36 of 43 CI 95% 69 to 93%) maintaining a 100% specificity. CONCLUSIONS: Analysis of hypermethylation status of a panel of genes and KRAS mutation detection offer a similar diagnostic yield in the evaluation of pancreatic masses. The combined molecular analysis increases the number of informative cases without diminishing specificity.

6 Article [Indications and results of pancreatic metastasis resection. Experience in the Hospital Universitario de Bellvitge]. 2012

ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVE: To analyse the indications and results of pancreatic metastasis resection in a university hospital. PATIENTS AND METHODS: An analysis was performed on a prospective database from 1990 to 2010. The clinical-pathological and perioperative details, as well the follow-up results were analysed. RESULTS: Of the 710 pancreatic resections performed, 7 cases (0.99%) were due to a metastasis in the pancreas. The mean age of the patients was 53.3 years (20-77 years), and 5 were male and 2 were women. Five (70%) patients were asymptomatic. The origin of the metastasis was: colon (n=3), kidney (n=2), jejunum (n=1), and testicle (n=1). In 4 cases they were situated in the head, 2 in the tail, and one in the body. The metastases were metachronous in 4 (57%) patients and the disease free interval was 29 months (17-48). There were 3 cases (43%) of synchronous metastases, with a mean recurrence-free time of 14 months, and survival of 21.6 months. This was lower than that of patients with metachronous metastases, which was 27.8 months and with a survival of 32 months, respectively. The overall disease free interval and survival was 21.85 months and 27.5 months, respectively. CONCLUSION: Resection of pancreatic metastases can extend survival in selected patients.
