- Endoscopic transmural entry into pancreatic fluid collections using a dedicated aspiration needle without endoscopic ultrasound guidance: success and complication rates. Chahal, P.; Papachristou, G. I.; Baron, T. H. // Surgical Endoscopy;Oct2007, Vol. 21 Issue 10, p1726
Endoscopic drainage of pancreatic fluid collections (PFC) is performed with increasing frequency. A variety of techniques for performing transmural entry have been described. However, data are lacking on the technical success and safety of transmural entry using a single technique. The authors...

- Predicting Unresectability in Pancreatic Cancer Patients: The Additive Effects of CT and Endoscopic Ultrasound. Yovino, Susannah; Darwin, Peter; Daly, Barry; Garofalo, Michael; Moesinger, Robert // Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgery;Jan2007, Vol. 11 Issue 1, p36
Background A standardized method for predicting unresectability in pancreatic cancer has not been defined. We propose a system using CT and endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) to assess patients for unresectable pancreatic cancers. Methods Radiologic and surgical data from 101 patients who underwent...

- Long Term Outcome of Endoscopic Drainage of Pancreatic Pseudocysts. Beckingham, I. J.; Krige, J. E. J.; Bornman, P. C.; Terbianche, J. // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Jan1999, Vol. 94 Issue 1, p71
Objective: Nonoperative drainage either by the percutaneous or endoscopic route has become a viable alternative to surgical drainage of pancreatic pseudocysts. Endoscopic drainage has been reported in a few small series with encouraging short term results. The aim of this study was to determine...
- Scrotal swelling caused by acute necrotizing pancreatitis: CT diagnosis. Kim, Sung-Bum; Je, Bo-Kyung; Lee, Seung; Cha, Sang // Abdominal Imaging;Apr2011, Vol. 36 Issue 2, p218
Scrotal involvement is a rare complication of acute pancreatitis. It presents as scrotal swelling and skin color change, which mimics the presentations of testicular torsion, epididymitis, and testicular tumor. Its differential diagnosis is important because scrotal involvement of acute...
- Usefulness of endoscopic ultrasound to diagnose the severity of chronic pancreatitis. Irisawa, Atsushi; Katakura, Kyoko; Ohira, Hiromasa; Sato, Ai; Bhutani, Manoop S.; Hernandez, Lyndon V.; Koizumi, Masaru // Journal of Gastroenterology;Jan2007 Supplement 17, Vol. 42, p90
Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) is considered the most sensitive imaging method for the diagnosis of chronic pancreatitis (CP). Several investigators have shown that EUS findings of CP correlate with the presence of CP on endoscopic retrograde pancreatography (ERP). In general, for diagnosing...
