BACKGROUND: Rapid urinary trypsinogen-2 dipstick test and levels of urinary trypsinogen-2 and trypsinogen activation peptide (TAP) concentration have been reported as prognostic markers for the diagnosis of acute pancreatitis. AIM: To reconfirm the validity of all these markers in the diagnosis of acute pancreatitis by undertaking a multi-center study in Japan. METHODS: Patients with acute abdominal pain were recruited from 17 medical institutions in Japan from April 2009 to December 2012...

OBJECTIVE: This study used a randomized controlled trial (RCT) to evaluate whether mattress suture of pancreatic parenchyma and the seromuscular layer of jejunum (modified Blumgart method) during pancreaticojejunostomy (PJ) decreases the incidence of clinically relevant postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). BACKGROUND: Several studies reported that mattress suture of Blumgart anastomosis in PJ could reduce POPF rate. This, however, is the first RCT...

There has been an increase in the incidence of acute pancreatitis reported worldwide. Despite improvements in access to care, imaging and interventional techniques, acute pancreatitis continues to be associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Despite the availability of clinical practice guidelines for the management of acute pancreatitis, recent studies auditing the clinical management of the condition have shown important areas of noncompliance with evidence-based recommendations. This underscores the importance of creating understandable and implementable recommendations for the diagnosis and management of acute pancreatitis...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the outcomes from minimal access retroperitoneal pancreatic necrosectomy (MARPN) and open pancreatic necrosectomy (OPN) for severe necrotizing pancreatitis in a single center. BACKGROUND: The optimal management of severe pancreatic necrosis is evolving with a few large center single series. METHODS: Between 1997 and 2013, patients with necrotizing pancreatitis at the Liverpool Pancreas Center were reviewed. Outcome measures were retrospectively analyzed by intention to treat...

BACKGROUND: Established closure techniques for the pancreatic remnant after distal pancreatectomy include stapler, suture and anastomotic closure. However, controversy remains regarding the ideal technique; therefore, the aim of this study was to compare closure techniques and risk of postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF). METHODS: A systematic review was carried out according to PRISMA guidelines for studies published before January 2014 that compared at least two closure techniques for the pancreatic remnant in distal pancreatectomy...
