ABSTRACT

Introducción. En las hernias paraesofágicas tipo IV se produce la herniación del estómago junto a otros órganos abdominales. La herniación del páncreas es muy infrecuente.Caso clínico. Varón de 57 años que acude por dolor torácico, disnea e intolerancia al decúbito. En la tomografía computarizada toracoabdominal se observa hernia diafragmática que contiene colon transverso, intestino delgado y páncreas, con reticulación de la grasa alrededor del mismo, compatible con pancreatitis aguda. Conclusión. La asociación de hernia hiatal con páncreas herniado y pancreatitis es extremadamente infrecuente. El diagnóstico se estableció mediante tomografía computarizada y el tratamiento fue conservador, con cirugía diferida de la hernia de hiato.


Introduction. In type IV paraesophageal hernias, the stomach is herniated along with other abdominal organs. Herniation of the pancreas is very rare. Clinical case. A 57-year-old man presented with chest pain, dyspnea, and intolerance to decubitus. The thoracoabdominal computed tomography shows a diaphragmatic hernia containing the transverse colon, small intestine and pancreas, with reticulation of fat around it, compatible with acute pancreatitis. Conclusion. The association of hiatal hernia with herniated pancreas and pancreatitis is extremely rare. The diagnosis was established by computerized tomography and the treatment was conservative, with delayed surgery for the hiatal hernia.

ABSTRACT

O procedimento cirúrgico eletivo realizado com maior frequência na rotina veterinária é a ovário-histerectomia (OVH), com isso há uma alta casuística de complicações pós-operatórias. Entre elas, pode-se citar piometra de coto, ligadura acidental de ureter, síndrome do ovário remanescente, formação de granulomas inflamatórios e aderências a órgãos. Os granulomas de coto ovariano são formados, geralmente por um fio de sutura utilizado inadequadamente, ou a um sítio de infecção. Tais granulomas podem levar à aderências, inclusive a órgãos próximos ao sítio cirúrgico. O presente relato refere-se a uma cadela, que apresentou granulomas ovarianos com aderências no pâncreas e em diversos órgãos após a ovário-histerectomia. Para a solução do caso, foi realizado uma celiotomia exploratória para avaliação da cavidade abdominal, retirada das aderências das estruturas e das formações granulomatosas, sendo necessária a realização de uma pancreatectomia parcial para a retirada completa do granuloma. Após a cirurgia, o paciente desenvolveu quadro de pancreatite, uma complicação muito comum em cirurgias pancreáticas. Ainda assim, o resultado foi considerado satisfatório, pois a pancreatite foi solucionada e os granulomas removidos, e até a última revisão pós-operatória, o paciente encontrava-se bem clinicamente. A OVH é uma das cirurgias mais realizadas na rotina médico veterinária, ainda assim é negligenciada em diversos quesitos. Portanto, há a necessidade dessa técnica cirúrgica e suas possíveis complicações serem realizadas de maneira correta e efetiva.(AU)


The most frequently elective surgical procedure performed in the veterinary routine is the ovary hysterectomy (OVH). As such, there is a high number of post-operative complications, which include stump pyometra, accidental ligation of the ureter, remnant ovary syndrome, formation of inflammatory granulomas, and organ adhesions. Ovarian stump granulomas are usually formed by suture which has been improperly used, or to infection. Such granulomas can lead to adhesions, also affecting organs close to the surgical site. This report refers to a female dog that presented ovarian granulomas with adhesions to the pancreas and to several organs after ovary-hysterectomy. In order to solve the case, an exploratory celiotomy was performed to assess the abdominal cavity, removing the adhesions of the structures and granulomatous formations, which required the performance of a partial pancreatectomy for the thorough removal of the granuloma. After surgery, the patient developed pancreatitis, a very common complication in pancreatic surgery. Even so, the result was considered satisfactory, as the pancreatitis was resolved and the granulomas removed and until the last post-operative review, the patient was clinically well. OVH is one of the most commonly performed surgeries in the veterinary medical routine, yet it is neglected in several aspects. Therefore, there is a need for the surgical technique and its possible complications to be performed correctly and effectively.(AU)


El procedimiento quirúrgico electivo que se realiza con mayor frecuencia en la rutina veterinaria es la ovario-histerectomía (OVH), con que existe un elevado número de complicaciones postoperatorias. Estos incluyen piometra del muñón, ligadura accidental del uréter, síndrome de ovario remanente, formación de granulomas inflamatorios y adherencias a órganos. Los granulomas del muñón ovárico se forman por lo general por una sutura mal utilizada o en un sitio de infección. Dichos granulomas pueden provocar adherencias, incluso a órganos cercanos al sitio quirúrgico. El presente informe se refiere a una perra, quien presentó granulomas ováricos con adherencias en el páncreas y en varios órganos tras ovario histerectomía. Para la solución del caso se realizó una celiotomía exploratoria para acceder la cavidad abdominal, removiendo las adherencias de las estructuras y formaciones granulomatosas, requiriendo la realización de una pancreatectomía parcial para la extirpación completa del granuloma. Después de la cirugía, la paciente desarrolló pancreatitis, una complicación muy común en la cirugía pancreática. Aun así, el resultado se consideró satisfactorio, ya que se resolvió la pancreatitis y se retiraron los granulomas, y hasta la última revisión postoperatoria la paciente se encontraba clínicamente bien. La OVH es una de las cirugías que se realizan con mayor frecuencia en la rutina médica veterinaria, pero se descuida en varios aspectos. Por tanto, existe la necesidad de que esta técnica quirúrgica y sus posibles complicaciones se realicen de forma correcta y eficaz.(AU)

ABSTRACT

Resumen El adenocarcinoma ductal de páncreas es una enfermedad agresiva asociada con pobres resultados de supervivencia a largo plazo. La resección quirúrgica y los nuevos tratamientos oncológicos pe rioperatorios han logrado mejorar la supervivencia de estos pacientes en la experiencia internacional. En este estudio retrospectivo se analiza la supervivencia global y la libre de enfermedad de todos los pacientes operados por cáncer de páncreas en el Hospital Italiano de Buenos Aires de enero 2010 a enero 2020. Se identificaron 242 pacientes con resecciones pancreáticas por adenocarcinoma de páncreas o carcinoma indiferenciado. La supervivencia global mediana fue de 22.8 meses (IC 95%: 19.5-29) y la tasa de supervivencia global a 1, 3 y 5 años fue de 72%, 32.5% y 20.8% respectivamente. La supervivencia libre de enfermedad mediana fue de 13.8 meses (IC 95%: 12-17.6) y la tasa de supervivencia libre de enfermedad a 1, 3 y 5 años fueron de 56.1%, 21.8% y 19.4% respectivamente. El grupo de pacientes que logró completar el tratamiento adyuvante mostró una mayor supervivencia global (p<0.0001).


Abstract Pancreatic cancer is an aggressive disease associated with poor results regarding long term survival. Surgical treatment along with new onco logic treatments have improved the survival of these patients in international experience reports. The aim of this study was to describe overall survival and disease-free survival after pancreatectomy for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma. A retrospective study of consecutive patients undergoing pancreatic resection due to PDAC or undifferentiated carcinoma from January 2010 to January 2020 in a single tertiary center was performed. Overall, 242 patients underwent complete pancreatic resections for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma or undifferentiated carcinoma. Median overall survival was 22.8 months (95% CI: 19.5-29) and survival at 1, 3 and 5 years were 72%, 32.5% and 20.8% respectively. The median disease-free survival was 13.8 months (95% CI: 12-17.6) and 1, 3- and 5-years disease-free survival were 56.1%, 21.8% and 19.4% respectively. The groups of patients that completed adjuvant treatment showed a better overall survival (p < 0.0001).

ABSTRACT

SUMMARY OBJECTIVE: To analyze abdominal drain on the first postoperative day and evaluate its predictive nature for the diagnosis of Pancreatic Fistula exclusion, seeking to establish a cutoff point from which lower values demonstrate safety in excluding the possibility of this complication. METHODS: From August 2017 to June 2020, data from 48 patients undergoing pancreatic resection were collected and analyzed from a prospective cohort. The patients were divided into two groups, one group consisting of patients who did not develop PF (Group A), and the other composed of patients who developed PF (Group B). The receiver operation characteristic curve was constructed, and cutoff points were evaluated by calculating sensitivity and specificity. RESULTS: Group A brought 30 patients together (62.5%) and Group B brought 18 patients together (37.5%). The 444 U/L value was the most satisfactory cutoff point for the receiver operation characteristic curve (CI 0.690-0.941), with a sensitivity of 94.4% and a specificity of 60%, thus being able to select 18 of 30 patients who did not succumb to PF. CONCLUSIONS: Abdominal drain on the first postoperative day can be used as a predictive factor in the diagnosis of PF exclusion (CI 0.690-0.941), with the value of 444 U/L being the best performance cutoff point.

ABSTRACT

El tumor sólido pseudopapilar de páncreas tiene una incidencia de 0,13-2,7%, afectando preferentemente a mujeres jóvenes. Presentamos la experiencia en el manejo de tumores sólidos pseudopapilares de páncreas durante 10 años en el Hospital Coromoto de Maracaibo. Métodos: Estudio retrospectivo realizado en el Hospital Coromoto de Maracaibo desde enero 2010 hasta diciembre 2019. Se analizaron las variables edad, sexo, ubicación del tumor, procedimiento quirúrgico, tamaño del tumor, tiempo quirúrgico, tiempo de hospitalización y complicaciones. Resultados: De 183 casos totales de cirugía pancreática,15 casos presentaron diagnóstico anatomopatológico de tumor sólido pseudopapilar, representando un 8,20% del total de las cirugías pancreáticas; con edades comprendidas entre 15 a 56 años, con una media de 27,93 de los cuales el 93,33% fueron del género femenino. La ubicación más frecuente fue el cuerpo y la cola del páncreas con un 53,33%. El procedimiento quirúrgico más empleado fue la pancreatectomía distal en 8 casos. El tamaño promedio de los tumores fue de 6,47cm y el tiempo quirúrgico empleado fue de 254 minutos para las pancreatectomías distales y 412 minutos para los procedimientos de Whipple, con una media de hospitalización de 4,6 y 7,2 días respectivamente. Presentaron complicaciones 2 pacientes y sin decesos. Conclusiones: El tumor sólido pseudopapilar es una neoplasia pancreática de comportamiento incierto, con una baja incidencia entre todos los tumores de páncreas, donde la laparoscopia es un método de abordaje seguro en las pancreatectomías distales, sin diferencias en estancia hospitalaria y tiempo quirúrgico. La resección quirúrgica con márgenes libres es curativa(AU)


The solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas has an incidence of 0.13-2.7%, preferentially affecting young women. We present the experience in the management of solid pseudopapillary tumors of the pancreas for 10 years at the Coromoto Hospital in Maracaibo. Methods: Retrospective study carried out at the Coromoto Hospital in Maracaibo from January 2010 to December 2019. The variables age, sex, tumor location, surgical procedure, tumor size, surgical time, hospitalization time and complications were analyzed. Results: Of 183 total cases of pancreatic surgery, 15 cases had a pathological diagnosis of a solid pseudopapillary tumor, representing 8.20% of the total of pancreatic surgeries; with ages ranging from 15 to 56 years, with an average of 27.93 of which 93.33% were female. The most frequent location was the body and tail of the pancreas with 53.33%. The most used surgical procedure was distal pancreatectomy in 8 cases. The average size of the tumors was 6.47cm and the surgical time used was 254 minutes for distal pancreatectomies and 412 minutes for Whipple procedures, with a mean hospital stay of 4.6 and 7.2 days, respectively. Two patients presented complications and no deaths. Conclusions: The solid pseudopapillary tumor is a pancreatic neoplasm of uncertain behavior, with a low incidence among all pancreatic tumors, where laparoscopy is a safe approach to distal pancreatectomies, without differences in hospital stay and surgical time. Surgical resection with free margins is curative(AU)

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Objective: to describe the implications of the diagnosis and treatment of non-inflammatory pancreatic cysts in a series of patients. Methods: we included patients with pancreatic cysts ≥1.0 cm, excluding those with a presumptive diagnosis of a pseudocyst. Imaging tests, echoendoscopy, and histopathology determined the diagnosis of the type of cyst. We applied the guidelines of the International Association of Pancreatology, with some modifications, in patients with mucinous or indeterminate lesions. Results: 97 adult patients participated in the study. A cystic neoplasm of the pancreas was diagnosed in 82.5% of cases. Diagnosis was mainly made by magnetic resonance (46% of cases). The two most common diagnoses were intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (43.3%) and serous cystadenoma (26%). Twenty-nine patients underwent surgery (33.3%). The most common surgical procedure was distal pancreatectomy associated with splenectomy in 19 cases (65.5%). Among the operated patients, 11 were diagnosed with cancer. None of the followed, non-operated patients had a diagnosis of cancer. Conclusions: magnetic resonance showed good accuracy, particularly in the diagnosis of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm. The guidelines of the International Association of Pancreatology, as applied in this study, showed a negative predictive value for cancer of 100%. A development of better diagnostic tests can reduce the number of unnecessary operations.


RESUMO Objetivo: descrever as implicações do diagnóstico e tratamento dos cistos não inflamatórios do pâncreas em série de pacientes. Metódos: foram incluídos pacientes com cisto de pâncreas ≥1,0cm excluindo aqueles com diagnóstico presuntivo de pseudocisto. Exames de imagem, ecoendoscopia e anatomia-patológica determinaram o diagnóstico do tipo de cisto. As diretrizes da Associação Internacional de Pancreatologia foram aplicadas, com algumas modificações, nos pacientes com lesões mucinosas ou indeterminadas. Resultados: noventa e sete pacientes adultos participaram do estudo. A neoplasia cística de pâncreas foi diagnosticada em 82,5% dos casos. O diagnóstico foi feito principalmente por ressonância magnética (46% dos casos). Os dois diagnósticos mais frequentes foram a neoplasia papilar intraductal mucinosa (43,3%), e o cistoadenoma seroso (26%). Vinte e nove pacientes foram submetidos a operação (33,3%). O procedimento cirúrgico mais comum foi a pancreatectomia corpo-caudal associada à esplenectomia em 19 casos (65,5%). Entre os pacientes operados, 11 tiveram o diagnóstico de câncer. Nenhum dos pacientes seguidos teve o diagnóstico de câncer. Conclusões: a ressonância magnética apresentou boa acurácia, particularmente no diagnóstico da neoplasia papilar intraductal mucinosa. As diretrizes da Associação Internacional de Pancreatologia da forma que foram aplicadas no presente estudo, mostraram valor preditivo negativo para o câncer de 100%. O desenvolvimento de estratégias diagnósticas com melhor acurácia podem reduzir o número de cirurgias desnecessárias.

ABSTRACT

Los tumores pseudopapilares del páncreas son tumores de origen pancreático poco frecuentes y de etiología desconocida. Comprenden entre el 0.2 y 2.7% de los carcinomas de páncreas. Hasta 2015 hay 900 casos reportados en la literatura, siendo una minoría en etapa diseminada. Son tumores voluminosos, de bajo potencial maligno, que se presentan con mayor frecuencia en mujeres jóvenes entre 18 y 35 años. Generalmente son asintomáticos o manifiestan clínicamente síntomas inespecíficos como dolor abdominal o presencia de masa abdominal. Anatómicamente se localizan con mayor frecuencia en la cola del páncreas, seguidos por la cabeza y el cuerpo. El tratamiento de elección es la resección quirúrgica. El rol de la quimioterapia en la enfermedad irresecable o avanzada no está claramente definido. Son tumores de excelente pronóstico, con sobrevida a 5 años de casi 100%.Se presentan cuatro casos clínicos y se hace una revisión de la literatura.


Pseudopapillary tumors of the pancreas are tumors of pancreatic origin with a low frequency and an unknown etiology. They account for 0.2 - 2.7 % of all pancreatic carcinomas. Up to 2015 there were approximately 900 well documented cases with only a small minority of them in a metastatic stage. This tumors could reach large proportions and they occur predominantly in young women between 18 and 35 years of age. Most of patients are asymptomatic or have non specific symptoms including abdominal pain or palpable abdominal mass. The most common localization is the tail of the pancreas, followed by the head and the body. Complete resection is the treatment of choice. It is not clearly stablished the rol of chemotherapy in metastatic disease. There are tumors with a favorable prognosis, with an overall 5 year survival rate about 95%. Herein, we report four clinical cases and a literatura review.

ABSTRACT

RESUMEN: La neoplasia quística mucinosa del páncreas (NQMP) es un tumor infrecuente, que afecta predominantemente a mujeres (90-95 %), afectando especialmente entre la quinta y séptima década de la vida; cuyo descubrimiento suele ser incidental. Por lo general, son lesiones solitarias, sin compromiso del conducto pancreático principal; poco sintomáticas y asociadas a malignidad (10 % a 40 %). El objetivo de este manuscrito fue reportar un caso de neoplasia quística mucinosa gigante del páncreas intervenida quirúrgicamente y revisar la evidencia existente respecto de sus características morfológicas, terapéuticas y pronósticas. Mujer de 29 años, con masa abdominal poco sintomática. El diagnóstico se verificó por medio de ultrasonografía, tomografía axial computarizada y resonancia nuclear magnética. Se intervino quirúrgicamente, realizándose pancreatectomía corporocaudal con preservación esplénica, sin incidentes. La paciente fue dada de alta al quinto día, sin complicaciones, y evolucionó de forma adecuada, sin complicaciones postoperatorias. La NMQP es una lesión compleja, que puede asociarse a malignidad, pero el diagnóstico preoperatorio de malignidad no puede establecerse con seguridad. El pronóstico depende de un diagnóstico precoz y un tratamiento oportuno.


SUMMARY: Mucinous cystic neoplasm of the pancreas (MCNP) are variable types of tumors, which predominantly affect women (90-95 %), and usually appear incidentally in the 5th to 7th decade of life. They are generally solitary lesions, with no involvement of the main pancreatic duct, rarely symptomatic and are associated with malignancy (10 % to 40 %). The aim of this manuscript was to report a case of giant mucinous cystic neoplasm of the pancreas surgically treated and review the existing evidence regarding its morphological, therapeutic and prognosis characteristics. Patient: A 29-year-old woman with a slightly symptomatic abdominal mass. The diagnosis was verified with ultrasound, computed axial tomography and magnetic nuclear resonance. The patient underwent surgery; an uneventful corporocaudal pancreatectomy with splenic preservation was performed. She was discharged on the fifth day, and has evolved adequately, without postoperative complications. MCNP is a complex lesion, which can be associated with malignancy, but the preoperative diagnosis of malignancy cannot be established with certainty. Its prognosis depends on early diagnosis and timely treatment.

ABSTRACT

RESUMEN Antecedentes: la neoplasia sólida pseudopapilar del páncreas es una entidad rara, que típicamente se presenta en mujeres jóvenes. Suele presentar síntomas abdominales inespecíficos. Es un tumor maligno de bajo grado de malignidad. Objetivos : el objetivo del siguiente informe de serie de casos es presentar 9 casos tratados en un cen tro y realizar una revisión bibliográfica del tema. Material y métodos: estudio retrospectivo descriptivo de los casos con diagnóstico anatomopatoló gico de neoplasia sólida pseudopapilar en el Servicio de Cirugía General, desde febrero de 2013 hasta septiembre de 2019. Se contemplaron como variables: edad, sexo, localización del tumor, tratamiento quirúrgico realizado, tiempo operatorio, complicaciones, estancia hospitalaria y seguimiento alejado. Resultados: fueron 9 casos, todos de sexo femenino con media de edad de 30 años (rango 20 a 70 años). La localización más frecuente fue en cola de páncreas en 4 casos (45%). Todas las pacientes fueron sometidas a cirugía, con abordaje laparoscópico en el 60% de los casos (n = 5); la resección pancreática distal con preservación esplénica fue la conducta más utilizada (n = 6). Se constataron tres complicaciones, de las cuales dos fueron colecciones abdominales como consecuencia de una fístula pancreática que se abordaron por vía percutánea, y la restante fue un retardo del vaciamiento gástrico por lo cual la paciente requirió internación prolongada. Conclusión: la neoplasia sólida pseudopapilar pancreática es una enfermedad poco frecuente, ma ligna pero con bajo riesgo de malignidad. Presenta buena sobrevida cuando se somete a cirugía de carácter curativo; la laparoscopia es la vía de abordaje de elección en centros con experiencia.


ABSTRACT Background: Solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas is a rare condition that affects young women. The most common symptom is unspecific abdominal pain. It is a malignant tumor of low malignant potential. Objective: The aim of this study is to report a case series of patients treated in a single center and perform a bibliographic review. Material and methods: We conducted a retrospective study of the cases with pathological diagnosis of solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas treated in the Department of General Surgery between February 2013 and September 2019. The following variables were analyzed; age, sex, tumor location, surgical treatment, operative time, complications, length of hospital stay and long-term follow-up. Results: Nine patients were included; all of them were women with mean age of 30 years (range: 20 - 70 years). The most common location of the tumor was the tail of the pancreas (n = 4; 45%). Surgery was performed in all the cases; five cases underwent video-assisted laparoscopy and spleen-preserving distal pancreatectomy was the technique more commonly used (n = 6). Three complications were recorded: two abdominal collections due to biliary leaks were trated by percutaneous approach and the other patient presented delayed gastric emptying and required prolonged hospitalization. Conclusion: Solid pseudopapillary tumor pf the pancreas is a rare low-grade malignant neoplasm. The prognosis is favorable after surgery and laparoscopy is the preferred approach in centers with experience.

ABSTRACT

RESUMEN Introducción: La Nesidioblastosis es una rara afección pancreática que provoca hipoglucemia por hipersinsulinismo endógeno en la infancia. Es poco habitual en el adulto; solo se han publicado casos aislados desde su descripción. Objetivo: Caracterizar la presentación de una hipoglucemia hiperinsulínica en un paciente adulto con Nesidioblastosis. Caso clínico: Paciente adulto de 35 años, blanco, sexo masculino, sospecha de insulinoma, con episodios de hipoglucemia en ayunas o tras un ejercicio que revertía con la ingesta de alimentos o soluciones glucosadas. Se le realizó pancreatectomía de un 85 por ciento y en el estudio histológico se detectó una Nesidioblastosis. Conclusiones: Es infrecuente en el adulto, realizar su diagnóstico es difícil, se llega a la cirugía con el conocimiento de un estado hiperinsulínico endógeno, sin la certeza de su origen(AU)


ABSTRACT Introduction: Nesidioblastosis is a rare pancreatic condition that causes hypoglycemia due to endogenous hypersinsulinism in childhood. It is unusual in adults; only isolated cases have been published including its description. Objective: To characterize a case of hyperinsulinic hypoglycemia, in an adult patient with nesidioblastosis. Clinical case: A 35-year-old, white, male, adult patient with suspected insulinoma, with episodes of hypoglycemia in the fasting state or after exercise that was reversed with ingestion of food or glucose solutions. 85 percent pancreatectomy was performed and nesidioblastosis was detected in the histological study.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Purpose: This study aimed to investigate factors associated with postoperative Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) focusing on intraoperative hypotension and blood loss volume. Methods: This was a retrospective cohort study of patients undergoing pancreas surgery between January 2013 and December 2018. The primary outcome was AKI within 7 days after surgery and the secondary outcome was the length of hospital stay. Multivariate analysis was used to determine explanatory factors associated with AKI; the interaction between the integrated value of hypotension and blood loss volume was evaluated. The differences in length of hospital stay were compared using the Mann-WhitneyU-test. Results: Of 274 patients, 22 patients had experienced AKI. The cube root of the area under intraoperative mean arterial pressure of < 65 mmHg (Odds Ratio = 1.21; 95% Confidence Interval 1.01-1.45; p = 0.038) and blood loss volume of > 500 mL (Odds Ratio = 3.81; 95% Confidence Interval 1.51-9.58; p = 0.005) were independently associated with acute kidney injury. The interaction between mean arterial hypotension and the blood loss volume in relation to acute kidney injury indicated that the model was significant (p < 0.0001) with an interaction effect (p = 0.0003). AKI was not significantly related with the length of hospital stay (19 vs. 28 days, p = 0.09). Conclusion: The area under intraoperative hypotension and blood loss volume of > 500 mL was associated with postoperative AKI. However, if the mean arterial pressure is maintained even in patients with large blood loss volume, the risk of developing postoperative AKI is comparable with that in patients with small blood loss volume.


Resumo Justificativa: O presente estudo teve como objetivo examinar os fatores associados à Lesão Renal Aguda (LRA) no pós-operatório, centrando-se na hipotensão e perda de sangue intraoperatórias. Método: Estudo de coorte retrospectivo de pacientes submetidos a cirurgia de pâncreas entre Janeiro de 2013 e Dezembro de 2018. O desfecho primário foi ocorrência de LRA em até 7 dias após a cirurgia e o secundário, o tempo de hospitalização. A análise multivariada foi usada para determinar os fatores explicativos associados à LRA; a interação entre o valor integrado da hipotensão e volume de perda de sangue foi avaliada. As diferenças no tempo de hospitalização foram comparadas pelo teste U de Mann-Whitney. Resultados: Dos 274 pacientes, 22 pacientes apresentaram LRA. A raiz cúbica da área sob a pressão arterial média intraoperatória < 65 mmHg (Odds Ratio = 1,21; Intervalo de Confiança de 95% 1,01-1,45; p = 0,038) e volume de perda sanguínea > 500 mL (Odds Ratio = 3,81; Intervalo de Confiança de 95% 1,51-9,58; p = 0,005) estavam independentemente associados à lesão renal aguda. A interação entre hipotensão arterial média e volume de perda sanguínea em relação à lesão renal aguda apontou o modelo como significante (p < 0,0001) com efeito de interação (p = 0,0003). A LRA não apresentou relação significante com o tempo de hospitalização (19 vs. 28 dias, p = 0,09). Conclusões: A área sob hipotensão arterial e o volume de perda sanguínea > 500 mL no intraoperatório apresentaram associação com LRA no pós-operatório. Entretanto, se a pressão arterial média se mantém, mesmo em pacientes com grande volume de perda sanguínea, o risco de desenvolver LRA no pós-operatório é comparável ao risco dos pacientes com pequeno volume de perda sanguínea.

ABSTRACT

Pancreatic metastases of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) are exceptional. We report a 80-year-old man consulting for obstructive jaundice and dysphonia. Abdominal ultrasonography showed biliary dilation and abdominal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed a pancreatic head mass of 36 mm. A left vocal cord paralysis was confirmed and cervical computed tomography (CT) showed multiple thyroid nodules of up to 35 mm associated with bilateral cervical lymph nodes (LN). Positron emission tomography ( 18 F-FDG PET/CT) evidenced hyper-metabolic activity in bilateral cervical LN, lungs, pancreas and left intercostal soft tissue, as well as left gluteus. Thyroid biopsy reported a tall-cell variant of PTC, and endoscopic ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) of pancreatic mass confirmed PTC metastasis. The molecular study was positive for BRAFV600E. Pancreatic metastasis from PTC can be accurately diagnosed with 18 F-FDG PET/CT and EUS-FNA, which is consistent with a predominant expression of BRAFV600E mutation and, thus, an aggressive presentation with poor short-term survival.

ABSTRACT

RESUMEN La hiperplasia de células neuroendocrinas pancreáticas es una patología donde se produce un aumen to en el número de células de los islotes de Langerhans y a veces puede simular un proceso tumoral. Caso clínico: presentamos el caso de un paciente con tumor sólido de cola de páncreas, sintomático, al que se le realizó esplenopancreatectomía corporocaudal laparoscópica. El resultado anatomopatoló gico posterior informó una hiperplasia neuroendocrina. Conclusión: la hiperplasia de células neuroen docrinas debería considerarse en el diagnóstico diferencial de tumores sólidos de páncreas. La alterna tiva quirúrgica laparoscópica es factible cuando no es posible establecer el diagnóstico prequirúrgico con estudios de imágenes o biopsia.


ABSTRACT Pancreatic endocrine cell hyperplasia is defined as an increase in the number of cells of Langerhans islets and can sometimes mimic a tumoral process. Case report: a male patient with a symptomatic solid tail of pancreas tumor underwent laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy and splenectomy. The pathological examination reported neuroendocrine cell hyperplasia. Conclusion: pancreatic endocrine cell hyperplasia should be considered in the differential diagnosis of solid pancreatic tumors. Laparoscopic surgery is feasible when the preoperative diagnosis with imaging tests of biopsy is not possible.

ABSTRACT

RESUMEN Las metástasis pancreáticas por carcinoma renal de células claras son excepcionales; en general, se presentan como tumores asintomáticos de diagnóstico incidental. Caso clínico: hombre de 61 años, nefrectomizado hace 10 años; durante el seguimiento se detecta una masa pancreática distal de 3 cm, hipervascular. Se realiza pancreatectomía corporocaudal laparoscópica, confirmándose la presencia de una metástasis de carcinoma renal. Las metástasis pancreáticas del carcinoma renal suelen apare cer en forma asintomática y metacrónica. La resección quirúrgica logra buenos resultados oncológicos y debe intentarse siempre que sea posible. En este caso destacamos que se pudo realizar una exéresis radical mediante abordaje mínimamente invasivo.


ABSTRACT Pancreatic metastases from clear cell renal carcinoma are very rare, and generally present as incidental asymptomatic tumors. Case report: a 61-year-old male patient with a history of nephrectomy 10 years before presented a 3-cm hypervascular mass in the distal pancreas during follow-up. A laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy was performed, confirming the presence of metastasis from a renal cell carci noma. Pancreatic metastases from renal cell carcinoma are usually metachronous and asymptomatic. Surgical resection is associated with favorable oncological results and, if possible, should be attempted. In our case, a successful oncological resection could be performed through a minimally invasive ap proach.

ABSTRACT

RESUMEN Antecedentes: la pandemia de COVID-19 ha introducido cambios drásticos en el sistema de salud. Las cirugías electivas son una de las actividades quirúrgicas que más han descendido durante la pandemia. Objetivo: analizar el impacto de la pandemia de COVID-19 en la cirugía pancreática en una institución pública y otra privada. Se comparó, en cada institución, con el número de cirugías en el mismo período del año pasado. Material y métodos: se revisaron en una base prospectiva los pacientes que recibieron una cirugía pancreática en las dos instituciones entre el 10/3/20 y el 24/6/20. Se determinaron los datos epide miológicos, el tipo de resección pancreática, el diagnóstico anatomopatológico, la morbilidad y la mor talidad. Se compararon con los pacientes en ambas instituciones que recibieron cirugía pancreática durante el período 10/3/19 al 24/6/19. Resultados: durante la pandemia se realizaron 23 resecciones pancreáticas (13 duodenopancreatec tomías cefálicas, 9 pancreatectomías izquierdas y 1 pancreatectomía total). El 70% (16/23) fueron adenocarcinomas. La morbilidad alcanzó el 34,7% y no se registró mortalidad. Ningún paciente ni miembro del equipo quirúrgico se infectó con coronavirus. La pandemia no tuvo impacto en el núme ro de cirugías en el centro privado (22 vs. 20, p = 0,88), mientras que en el centro público hubo una reducción significativa en el número de cirugías (14 vs. 3, p = 0,009). Conclusión: la cirugía pancreática se puede hacer con seguridad durante la pandemia. En el centro privado se mantuvo el número de cirugías pancreáticas. En el centro público, con máxima prioridad para pacientes con COVID-19, hubo un descenso significativo.


ABSTRACT Background: The COVID-19 pandemic has introduced dramatic changes in the health system. Elective surgeries are the surgical activities with greater decline during the pandemic. Objective: The aim of this paper is to analyze the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in pancreatic sur gery in a public and a private institution. The number of surgeries performed in each institution was compared with those performed in same period of the previous year. Material and methods: Data from a prospective database of all the patients who underwent pancrea tic surgery between March 10, 2020, and June 3, 2020, were analyzed. The epidemiological data, type of pancreatic resection, pathology diagnosis, morbidity and mortality were determined in each insti tution and compared with patients who underwent pancreatic surgery in both institutions between March 3, 2019, and June 24, 2019. Results: 23 pancreatic resections were performed during the pandemic (13 cephalic pancreaticoduo denectomies, 9 left pancreatectomies and 1 total pancreatectomy); 70% (16/23) were adenocarcino mas. There were 34.7% complications and no deaths were reported. None of the patients was infected with coronavirus. The pandemic had no impact on the number of pancreatic resections in the private institution (22 vs. 20, p = 0.88), while the number of pancreatic surgeries was significantly lower in the public center (14 vs. 3, p = 0.009). Conclusion: Pancreatic surgery can be safely performed during the pandemic. The number of pancrea tic surgeries did not decline during the pandemic. The priority for treating patients with COVID-19 at the public center resulted in a significant decrease in pancreatic surgeries.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Objective: the first robotic pancreatic resection in Brazil was performed by our team in 2008. Since March 2018, a new policy prompted us to systematically employ the robot in all minimally invasive pancreatic surgery. The aim of this paper is to review our experience with robotic pancreatic resection. Methods: all patients who underwent robotic pancreatic resection from March 2018 through December 2019 were identified. Descriptive data were collected. Preoperative variables included age, sex, and indication for surgery. Intraoperative variables included operative time, bleeding, blood transfusion. Results: 105 patients underwent robotic pancreatectomy. Median age was 60.5 years old. Fifty-five patients were female. 51 patients underwent robotic pancreatoduodenectomies, 34 distal pancreatectomy. Morbidity was 23.8%, mainly related to postoperative pancreatic fistula and one death occurred (mortality of 0.9%). Three patients (2.8%) were converted to open surgery. Four patients had delayed gastric emptying and two presented bleeding. Twenty-four patients had pancreatic fistula that was treated conservatively with late removal of the pancreatic drain. No patient required percutaneous drainage, reintervention or hospital readmission. Conclusions: the robotic platform is useful for the reconstruction of the alimentary tract after pancreatoduodenectomy or after central pancreatectomy. It may increase the preservation of the spleen during distal pancreatectomies. Pancreas sparing techniques, such as enucleation, resection of uncinate process and central pancreatectomy, should be used to avoid exocrine and/or endocrine insufficiency. Robotic resection of the pancreas is safe and feasible for selected patients. It should be performed in specialized centers by surgeons with experience in both open and minimally invasive pancreatic surgery.


RESUMO Objetivo: a primeira ressecção pancreática robótica no Brasil foi realizada por nossa equipe em 2008. Desde março de 2018, uma nova política nos levou a empregar sistematicamente o robô em todas cirurgias pancreáticas minimamente invasivas. O objetivo deste artigo é revisar nossa experiência com a ressecção pancreática robótica. Métodos: todos os pacientes submetidos a ressecção pancreática robótica de 2018 a 2019 foram incluídos. Variáveis pré- e intraoperatórias como idade, sexo, indicação, tempo cirúrgico, sangramento, diagnóstico, tamanho do tumor foram analisados. Resultados: 105 pacientes foram submetidos a pancreatectomia robótica. A idade mediana dos pacientes foi de 60,5 anos. 55 pacientes eram do sexo feminino. 51 pacientes foram submetidos a pancreatoduodenectomia, 34 pancreatectomia distal. A morbidade foi de 23,8% e ocorreu um óbito (mortalidade de 0,9%). Três pacientes (2,8%) tiveram a operação convertida para aberta. Quatro pacientes apresentaram retardo no esvaziamento gástrico e dois apresentaram sangramento. Vinte e quatro pacientes apresentaram fístula pancreática tratada de forma conservadora com remoção tardia do dreno pancreático. Nenhum paciente necessitou de drenagem percutânea, reintervenção ou readmissão hospitalar. Conclusões: a plataforma robótica é útil para a reconstrução do trato alimentar após pancreatoduodenectomia ou após pancreatectomia central. Pode aumentar a preservação do baço durante pancreatectomias distais. Técnicas poupadoras de pâncreas, como enucleação, ressecção de processo uncinado e pancreatectomia central, devem ser usadas para evitar insuficiência exócrina e/ou endócrina. A ressecção robótica do pâncreas é segura e viável para pacientes selecionados. Deve ser realizada em centros especializados por cirurgiões com experiência em cirurgia pancreática aberta e minimamente invasiva.

ABSTRACT

La diarrea nosocomial, que es la adquirida en el ámbito hospitalario, suele ser producida por Clostridium difficile. Sin embargo, en raras ocasiones puede ocasionar un síndrome de distrés respiratorio. Por ello, el diagnóstico de dicha patología es difícil si no se sospecha. El tratamiento se basa en el uso de antibiótico vía oral. Se expone el caso de una paciente de 66 años con dicha patología tras la realización de pancreatectomía total.


Nosocomial (hospital-acquired) diarrhea is usually caused by Clostridium difficile. On rare occasions it can cause acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Therefore, this condition should be suspected in order to make a diagnosis. Treatment is based on oral antibiotics. We report the case of a 66-year-old female patient with ARDS secondary to Clostridium difficile colitis after total pancreatectomy.

ABSTRACT

Resumen Introducción: La cirugía laparoscópica es la vía de abordaje de elección para el tratamiento de múltiples patologías abdominales, sin embargo, su desarrollo en la cirugía hepato-bilio-pancreática (HBP) ha sido más lento y heterogéneo. Objetivo: Presentar los resultados de la implementación y desarrollo de un programa de cirugía HBP laparoscópica en el Hospital de Regional de Talca. Materiales y Método: Estudio de serie de casos que incluye a todos los pacientes operados por una patología HBP por vía laparoscópica como acceso a la cavidad abdominal en el Hospital Regional de Talca entre el 1 de junio de 2014 y el 30 de junio de 2016. Resultados: Fueron 42 pacientes, 25 (59,5%) de sexo femenino. La mediana de edad fue 58 años (IQ25-75 38-64 años). 22 (52,4%) tuvo una cirugía abdominal previa en la mayoría de ellos por vía abierta. 22 (52,4%) pacientes fueron intervenidos por patología maligna. La indicación más frecuente fue la cirugía radical por cáncer de vesícula biliar en 10 (23,8%) casos y la hidatidosis hepática (HH) en 7 (16,7%). 1 (2,4%) paciente portador de una HH requirió de una conversión a laparotomía. 5 (11,9%) presentaron alguna morbilidad posoperatoria, 2 de ellos > III de Clavien. La mediana de recuperación funcional fue de 1 día (1-2) y la de estadía posoperatoria de 3 días (3-4). No hubo mortalidad a 90 días. Con una mediana de seguimiento de 26,5 (18-33) meses, 4 (19%) de los 21 pacientes oncológicos intervenidos con intención curativa presentaron recurrencia de la enfermedad, la mayoría de ellos sistémica y el 95% está libre de recurrencia a los 24 meses. Conclusiones: La implementación y el desarrollo de la cirugía hepato-bilio-pancreática (HBP) por vía laparoscópica puede efectuarse en hospitales de referencia regional con los mismos estándares y resultados internacionales.


Introduction: Laparoscopic surgery is the preference access for the treatment of various abdominal pathologies, however, its development in hepato-biliary-pancreatic (HBP) surgery has been slower and heterogeneous. Aim: Present the results of the implementation and development of a laparoscopic HBP surgery program at the Regional Hospital of Talca. Materials and Method: Case series study in which were included all patients submitted to laparoscopic surgery for treatment of HPB pathology as access to the abdominal cavity in the Regional Hospital of Talca between June 1, 2014 and June 30, 2016. Results: There were 42 patients, 25 (59.5%) female. The median age was 58 years (IQ25-75 38-64 years). 22 (52.4%) had previous abdominal surgery in most of them by open route. 22 (52.4%) patients were operated on for malignant pathology. The most frequent indication was radical surgery for gallbladder cancer in 10 (23.8%) cases and hepatic hydatidosis (HH) in 7 (16.7%). 1 (2.4%) patient carrying a HH required a conversion to laparotomy. 5 (11.9%) presented some postoperative morbidity, 2 of them > Clavien III. The median functional recovery was 1 day (1-2) and the postoperative stay was 3 days (3-4). There was no mortality at 90 days. With a median follow-up of 26.5 (18-33) months, 4 (19%) of the 21 oncological patients operated on with curative intent presented recurrence of the disease, most of them systemic and 95% free from recurrence at 24 months. Conclusions: Implementation and development of HBP surgery by laparoscopy is feasible and it can be performed in regional referral hospitals with the same international standards and results.
